Brad and I spent Thanksgiving with his family and fine Turkey day tradition we broke out the football Brad got for last Christmas and played a little catch in the front yard.Brad looking all rugged and athletic

He could go all the way!!!
I will say that one of the parts of marriage that takes the most getting used to is adjusting to a different families traditions. It is still fun, just different. We didn't manage to get pictures taken but Christmas night it snowed about 15 inches here in Cache Valley. So I am definitely getting the appropriate initiation to Logan winters. Let me just say it is impressive, at least it would be if we owned something more technologically advanced than a snow shovel.

A Day Off

Brad finally had a full day off so we decided to take the day to run some errands in Salt Lake and have lunch with my Rodney, Marja, Whitney, and Craig. We finished off the day with a pizza fest with my friend Erica and her family and then a trip to Temple Square to see the Christmas lights. This trip was important because Brad has never seen the lights at temple square. We had a lot of fun and even managed to get some fun pictures.

It may have been snowing but Brad is all smiles.

Erica's family, Brad and I all bundled up to see the lights.

I just thought this looked cool and I am glad I was able to capture it on the camera, it really looked like this.

Riding Trax downtown so that we didn't have to park. Brad and I with Matthew and Jarom Miller.

Christmas card anyone?

At temple square they have this lifesize nativity scene that gets lit up by spot lights about every 15 minutes while the christmas story plays. Well there was so much snow that they had a guy out with a broom sweeping off the wisemen. You can see him standing behind the camel.

I just thought the snow looked cool falling through the spot light beams so I had to try to capture it.

We also had lots of fun this past wednesday, we finally managed to get my couch into the apartment but it wouldn't make the turn in the hallway to get into the room that was our TV room so we had to switch our bedroom ad the TV room. Here is some photographic evidence of the insanity.

The beginning of the insane room swap. Still smiling.

On a fun note we got our first christmas tree, it is cute and little just like our apartment. Of course because of the moving rooms insanity we had to move the tree as well which I am sure Brad enjoyed that little adventure. It has been fun creating some of our own Christmas traditions.

I'm Done!! I'm Done!! I'm Done!!

I just wanted to let all of you know that I am officially done with school and will be moving up to Logan tomorrow morning. It is so nice to be able to come home in the evening and not feel like I have to do homework, it is absolutely decadent.
