Last week we had a random snow storm! Not just a mini storm, but about 7 inches! It looked absolutely beautiful...I just hate that I was sooo not prepared. I definately wore the wrong shoes that day! I was soo freezing!
That morning I was standing outside waiting for Katie and Shawn to pick me up for work. I was just minding my own business taking these few pictures, and then I apparently wandered under a light post that had melting snow! All of a sudden I was one of those people I always laugh at when snow banks them on the head. Now I can laugh about it, but of course at the time I did not think it was funny haha.

Then yesterday while the boys were hanging out, Shawn sent me this photo, and I laughed so hard! I absolutely love my walrus!!!

The first book we read was The Boy in the Striped Pajamas. It was incredible. I really recommend it. It is based during the holocaust and written in the point of view of a 9-year old boy. There is a movie based on the book, but as usual, it doesn't even compare!
The second book we read was The Pact. Which was also amazing. It had romance, suspense, a little comedy. Completely kept us on the edge of our seats! It is about a young teenage couple that supposedly made suicide pact...but then it went all wrong! The author is Jodi Picoult and she has multiple books...all different from one another...I am sure we will add more of her novels to our list of books to read!
The book we are currently reading is called The Thirteenth Tale. It is really good so far. I can't tell you much being that I have only read 38 pages so far...but I can say that the writing is incredible. I find myself covered in chills multiple times while reading. We try to underline things in the books we read to discuss at book club. I have not been able to underline anything because truthfully I want to underline EVERYTHING. The words the author uses are beautiful; descriptions in such a way that you feel you are present. I will update my blog on how the book is as I read...
Reading is something that I have truly fell in love with over the past year and half. I loved reading when I was younger...but for some reason I had completely forgotten how amazing reading can be. To get lost in the fantasy. In between the book club...once I've reached the assigned page for the week...I have read a couple other books. One of which was about Vampires and was just for fun.
So please let me know what you are currently reading or what you have read in the past because I would love to add it to my list!
Well last I had written it was Thanksgiving. Jason was working at a boys home for troubled teens and I was desperately looking for a job! Well... the boys home was making cut backs and in January, after the holidays that Jay had to miss, he got layed off. So we had to make a quick decision. I felt scared and sad becuase we were back to sqaure one...so I gave Katie a call to see if her work was hiring, in UTAH! And sure enough they were. So we made a plan to go to Utah for a quick weekend trip so I could interview and look at apartments. Well within three days I had a job and we had an apartment. So we went back home packed everything up and moved out that very next weekend! We got everything in on Saturday and I started work on Monday.
I am working at an Internet Web Hosting company called E-Harbor. I am an Administrative Assistant and I really love my job. Jason got a job at Walmart about a month after we lived here. He is working in the electronics department and absolutely loves it. He gets to help customers everyday and he really loves meeting new people. Life is absolutley amazing right now. We were so scared to make this move but it has been the best decision we have made in a long time. We are completely Independent and it feels incredible.
We really miss our friends and family in california...along with the beach! But we had a pleasant change a few weeks ago when our niece Lauren moved up here to Utah. She is staying with us until the beginning of May. Her bestfriend moved up here a while ago and once Lauren came to visit her she was sold on moving here! So it has been soo amazing having at least one member of our family here! I am so glad that she gets to stay with us, even though its just for a little while:)
Here are some pictures of our move, our new place, and Laurens room:
Tired and glad to be done! lol

Beyonce sang this on Ellen and I fell in love with it...its how I feel about Jason...I hope you enjoy:)
I love you Bubba, for always:)
We had a PRE- Thanksgiving dinner at my parents house on Sunday the 23rd. My parents went to Nashville, TN to visit my sister and her family for Thanksgiving. It was a plan a long time ago cause my neice was supposed to be born this week! So they are there meeting Eliza Jane!
Jason had to work so of course he isn't in any of the pre-thanksgiving pics:( makes me sad...i know he loves his job...but I'm starting to hate it!
Matti, Me, Seybrielle, Mikey, Kayla, Lauren, and Taylor...rockin our Native American head-dresses! Well me and Taylor kinda cheated! She didn't make one so she got stuck with a party hat...and I cheated by just sticking a feather in my hair! haha
Our attempt at teaching a 2 1/2 year old the real meaning of Thanksgiving. These books were great...we found them at Barnes and Noble:)
Helping her make her foam turkey and head dress:)
We celebrated Laura (nov.14th) and Mikey's(nov.20th) Birthdays!
