O Christmas Tree :)

I have just loved this season SO much! It has brought Avery and I closer and has let us had a fun journey so far!

Yesterday for FHE we invited my family to go with us. My dad said he knew where some trees were, so we asked him to show us. We got there and saw a few, I hiked to them in the snow that was up to my knees! I did this to 2 trees at first and I didn't like either of them! So we drove a littler further and parked and all got out to go hiking for a tree. Avery started walking and found a CUTE one! I just had to look and see if there was another one:) We walked around for 5-10 more minutes. I decided to go back to the one Ave picked. Dad went and got the chain saw started it but it kept dying. He forgot to check and make sure it had gas before we left!! So avery cut down our tree with a hand saw:) We hauled it back to the truck and we had cocoa:) Then dad decided he wanted to take a road that hasn't been plowed yet. Avery slid off and got stuck, but was able to get out. Then he went ahead of everybody and we got to a high spot on the road where he was scraping and got stuck and had to be pulled out. We went a little further and had to turn around. We headed home and had soup and put up the tree and decorated with my families help it was a GREAT night!

Avery and I just got the internet at our house. I am starting to hate it already!! Oh well I just hope the vicious cycle doesn't continue:/ I am DYING to see my wedding pictures. I got told three weeks ago it would only take a few more days and I have yet to see them:( Avery and I have put up christmas lights I will upload those pictures next time. I am so ready for the weekend to be here! I am also ready to order my pictures I have yet to scrapbook and start scrapping again:) I also need to get my christmas cards done and out, but I was going to just use a wedding picture in them but I can't yet...waiting Joy.... This Thanks giving Brad was able to make it up and stay for 5 days at my parents house. It was a lot of fun! My mother has the pictures so I will have to ask her for them. While he was here we ate and played games and played hide and go seek for Jordan. That is her favorite game I think! I enjoyed being off of work and being able to relax and enjoy my family. I hardly did any cleaning and now this week I am paying for it! I am also wishing we had our bedroom furniture so I could get the ugly shelfs out of our room. someday...I hope you all enjoyed your holiday!

Randomness:) Enjoy!

I am just posting because I haven't in such a long time! I Am not sure what to call it because it is so random! :) First off we have a new nephew and niece! My brother brad and his wife Manike had a baby girl, Carolina Arabella. You can click this link to go see her http://lifeatthepipkins.blogspot.com/
Candice & Duncan Just had a baby boy last week, Traxton, he is adorable! You can go here to see him http://candoolsen.blogspot.com/ I love that I am actually an aunt! Momma Olsen said that Traxton looks like Duncan and Avery did when they were babies so I am thinking that Avery and I's will look close to this! :) (I am OK with that)

Then this week is Thanksgiving and Bradley is going to make it up to Monticello, I am so EXCITED to see him because I haven't really seen him since January of this year! We will be having dinner at my parents but I think Avery has to work so I am sad about that! I am Also excited for Christmas coming up! I am such a fan of this holiday just because of the reason for the season:)

Then the last little bit Avery and I have been accomplishing lots of little things around the house! I am so ready to get back into scrap booking after the holidays because time will have slowed down. Also I got told that my wedding pictures are close to being done and I am so ready to see them but nervous too!

This weekend Avery went out with some of his buddies and I went with my family to New Moon. I really did like it! Just ready for the next one:)

Avery and I made sugar cookies last night it was a lot of fun to be able to do that together and spend that time! I love Sundays because we are both home from work! We love the married life:) We wouldn't trade it for anything!

This is where we went for our honeymoon! We had a blast! It was SOO much fun and we plan on returning! These pictures were taken ontop of the bus we rode up and down the strip to see it all! We only had a super short break here so we didn't risk getting off the bus! I hope you enjoy the pictures of the honeymoon! Thanks for all your help with the wedding! As soon as i figure out how to get some on here I will!

Nathan Burton Comedy Magic Show

We went to this show the friday we were there. It was a good magic show! I won a box of hone bunches of oats from one of his tricks it was pretty sweet!!

Tournament of Kings

This was the first show we went to. It was pretty good! We had dinner and a meal. We had to eat with our fingers! Also the chicken wasn't chicken it was cornish game hen. I was nervous to eat it at first but I ate it and it was actually pretty good! Just missing the ranch:) The cup up there is called a Tankard and they gave you refils all during the show. Well the drink was either pepsi or diet pepsi. I drank 4 tankards of pepsi! I NEVER drink pop! Avery was of course in heaven:) Of course as you know we can't take pictures in the shows but I took one of us before and our dishes for our meal! I think Avery looks HOT in this picture!! But that is my opinion;)

Honey moon continued

So the camera died yesterday but I charged the battery and were good to go again!We went to the most AMAZING show ever!!! This show is called O it was a variety/circus kind of show on water! I was skeptical at first when we bought tickets. In the end I LOVED it and glad Avery took me to this show! We were a little worried we wouldn't make it to the show. I took a nap after lunch and woke up with a fever and wasn't feeling good.I took some medicine and felt better. Avery took the picture above when I was all dressed up fir our show. I will be back to it for sure! These clowns were a middle act for the preforms to change and they were quite funny!

The ceiling, The beginning of the show a girl comes out on this!

Us at the show

This is one of the first costumes they thought up for the show, they have changed a little since then.

My camera died so I can not finish our honey moon you will have to wait till later! I am sure you will be happy with the pictures that you get to see and sorry for the picture overload!!! Love you all and when I get wedding pics I will post them!

Lions, Tigers and Jaguars OH MY!

Went to the Mirage and went to see dolphins but they also had lions and tigers and jaguars. It was fun to watch the baby cubs play! The lions were pretty boring! There was one lion who was REALLY old and he sat and ate and ripped the turf up in his pen!
