Well as you guessed.. it snowed here last night!! If you grew up in Colorado like I did im sure you will see this picture and think that it is nothing to write about, but it is exciting to get some snow for the first time out here in Ohio! I guess that the good amounts of snow don't normally come until after the 1st of the new year. So we are waiting around for that. Neither one of us mind the snow to bad, it's the cold weather that we hate. It has been so cold here! The humidity makes it misrable to live in! Plus, since it's so cold, the snow just freezes to the roads and it's nothing but black ice.. sounds dangerous!! Time for new tires I guess! Anyways.. we would love to be living in Arizona right about now but the good news is that Tonka is having a blast playing in the snow. He likes to lay outside and eat it and anything he can find frozen underneath it.. and I mean anything!! He likes being outside more now than he ever did when the weather was nice. So basically it has been a day full of hot cocoa and movies! But 17 days and we get to go on vacation! We can't even wait!

Our Thanksgiving!

Well it's December now and I haven't had time to tell everyone about our Thanksgiving! We had a very nice Thanksgiving! We weren't able to go home since Preston only had a couple days off from school and since i have a job now. But it worked out just fine. We ended up going over to a friends house for dinner with 3 other couples and their kids! It was really fun and all we had to make was the pumpkin pie which is a whole lot easier than making a WHOLE Thanksgiving dinner for just 2 people. SO, the only thing we had to say about Thanksgiving was that it was a wonderful way to spend our first Thanksgiving as a married couple! It is weird though.. You really learn a lot about yourself and your spouse living so far away from home and not being able to go see your family for every holiday. We learned this holiday to be sesitive about each others feelings and that making new family traditions for our little family is important to do. Anyways, even though we did just fine with out our families for Thanksgiving we are really really looking forward to going to Idaho in just 2 weeks and spending Christmas with Prestons family! Other than that, we are just staying busy here at home. I have a calling now as the Secretary in the Young Womens presidency and Preston is a primary teacher for the 8 and 9 year olds. I am starting to get more busy at work and I am still doing hair on the side at home. Preston is busy with school getting good grades and studying all the time. So in-between our callings and our jobs we like to relax and hang out with each other! We are really looking forward to a vacation!
