Snow Snow Go Away...

       The snow is all the way up to our window!           

These past few weeks there has been SOOOO much snow! its ridiculous. We've probably gotten over 2 feet of snow overall... and now its snowing even more today! On Christmas, Tom and I decided to venture out into the snow for a total of like 5 minutes... (tom got a little cold, that wuss) to see how deep the snow was and what not.

We watched Marley and Me last night and they lived in Florida with the sunshine, warm weather, beaches and a pool in the backyard. It made us want to move somewhere warmer, or somewhere with out so much snow. I keep convincing Tom to move to Oregon. haha i just want to get out of Rexburg!!! The snow and roads are just so bad here and its frustrating. Anywho, here are some pictures of the snow we've gotten.

Christmas Time

So It's finally christmas, although it doesn't seem like it too much this year. Probably because Tom and I got stuck in stinkin Rexburg for christmas. We were planning to go to Oregon for a few days but the snow kept coming and so we were afraid of getting snowed in at tom's place or not being able to drive on certain roads or what not. So we just had a little christmas here. Last night we went to Horkley's and rented like 5 movies so we wouldn't get bored today. We also went to the store to buy stuff to make extra cheesey creamy chicken enchiladas that tom really wanted (lets see if ican get through cooking them with the smell and all) and we also bought a lot of junk food since we're not going to be working for a few days and will be stuck at home with all the snow thats coming in (its looking crazy out there!) I think we've gotten at least over a food and half of snow total... it was 12 inches the other night so it said on the news. The wind is whats the bad thing making snow drifts.

This morning we got up pretty 
early... ok like 8ish and we were starving, so we made a big breakfast.... 
with omelets, hashbrowns, bacon and sausage. Tom made the BIGGEST omelete i have ev
er seen .... as you can see in the picture... I just ate a few slices of bacon and called it a morning. We opened stockings and a present each. Tom got me a hair dryer and straightener which i really needed. 


      I got him Burberry 
cologne (which i think i like more than he does haha)
 I also got a present from Jody who pulled my name and got Catch Phrase the game, Thanks jody! My dad pulled tom's name, but the present wont get here for awhile.... . Other than that we just got a bunch of goodies. 

I guess now its just time to be lazy and enjoy one another's company. I got to talk to my dad this morning and i bet christmas is def. different since my sister is at her husband's place and my other sister is stuck in georgia working (i hope she's having a good christmas, even though she's working all  day today. Im excited to see her next week!) I hope the roberts side is having a fun christmas, and i wish we were there. We'll have to make a phone call later on to see how their christmas is going. (and we enjoyed the videos you guys put up on your blog, HILARIOUS. i cried i was laughing so hard). Oh Ps. HAPPY LATE BIRtHDAY ADAM! (cant believe you're already a year old! CRazy!)

Well i hope everyone is enjoying their christmas and we miss and love you all!!! We hope that next year we will get to be with family on christmas!

ps. We just got a phone call from Nick! YAY we're glad he's doing so well on his mission. It's crazy to think he just got passed his first year.

The Rumors are True..

(the night i surprised tom with the pregnancy test...)

So the rumors are true. Some family members already know, but for others, i guess it's safe to say...

we are expecting a baby!! Im 12 weeks right now and just got to hear the heartbeat today. Everything looks good so far although i am bummed we were never able to get a print out of the baby at 8 weeks, otherwise i would've posted it on here. But oh well, I guess we're going to have to wait 2 more months till im 20 weeks. But yup, just thought I'd let everyone know. Incase you didn't get the hint when I was so incredibly sick these past few weeks of throwing up non-stop! haha. Luckily it is getting better as the weeks go by.

The Due date is July 8th 2009.... 07.08.09! Pretty neat huh?

Let it Snow, Let it Snow, Let it Snow!

so we finally got snow last night, for the second time this winter... which is VERY unusual for rexburg! We usually get this kind of snow in early november or even earlier. We're supposed to get around 3-5 inches... i suck at measurments so im not sure exactly how much we've had so far. I know i at least scraped off an inch off my car this morning, and the picture I took is when it started to snow again. 

I love snow, i just hate driving in it. I know ill get sick of it once we get it all the time, which is usually the case. I hate walking to class in it as well. I've already had hot chocolate made in my cocoamotion... and wish i made my sugar cookies.. that i went all the way to the store in this morning to make.. came home and realized that Tom used all the eggs. How lame! I guess theyll have to wait till tomorrow.

Speaking of going to the store... I got stuck a little going around a corner but managed to get going... and thenwhen i was at the stop sign across from my apartment, when this guy was going pretty fast and when he turned, he was a few feet from hitting me... he went way out of control and all that. Made me very nervous!! 

Im hoping the roads get better by tonight and not worst because we were planning on going to a wedding reception in Idaho falls... and i really wanted to go. Lame-o. We will see.

IM SO EXCITED because tom got a day off work so now we can go to oregon for chrismtas!!! i already had 3 days off and then the weekend so we got pretty lucky. Only a week and a half.. Yayy.  And then when we get back on sunday, ill rest up on monday and then head back east on tuesday for a week. It's gonna be a nice long break from work.. only 7 more days.  I am actually excited for school to start because im only taking 3 credits and then working afternoons (part time) at the daycare. Lately working full time has really been a drag.. just cause ive been sick and what not.

I'll be home for christmas... or new years at least.

So over the past couple of days I was talking to my dad about coming home for a little while between after christmas and the beginning of the semester. I didn't tihnk i was actually going to go and gave up on the idea until my dad called last night askign if I looked up ticket prices. I said to, its too complicated. Well my dad insisted that I looked because he had the idea that i was going to try to come home. Well, i figured I had a few days off for new years and since i worked the thanskgiving holidays, i would be able to get a few days off for me. So i looked up some dates, and bam, a ticket for $198. Sweet deal huh? So basically, i called my dad and booked it. Luckily, it is the same flight my sister and alex will be on on the way home to SLC.

Im really excited because we're going to go drive down to Georgia to meet up and visit with my sister Cori. She's living in Savannah so itll be way neat, ive never been down there. Other than that, im just excited to go home since i havent been back since we got married in april. Nor have i seen my parents. Luckiliy Jody and alex live just down in utah so we can see them more often.

Tom came home today saying that there is a possibility that we could drive to oregon for a few days for christmas (even though we would get there christmas morning) I thought that would be fun, hopeuflly it would work out. my work schedule would work, but with tom's you never know.

Im just sad that Tom can't come with me to Pennsylvania. If we had a little more extra money he wouldve been able to come. we just cant afford for us to both miss work for a week. Gotta love him for letting me go by myself, although this will be the 2nd new years we'll be apart. I remember last new years we were just dating but it sucked, i was in Va and he was in rexburg and i remember tlaking to him and how he was at some party and i was stuck with a migrane. Hopefully this year will be better, i mean, i would be going to sleep by 10 anyways! I go to sleep so early these days i can't stay up past midnight. I feel bad he can't come with us and wish he could spend more time with my family. We'll just be lucky when most of myf amily will be up here in july. I can't wait for that, itll be tons of fun... it's just so far away.

Im glad my dad is wanting me to come home so bad, I miss it back there and miss my home and family like crazy. I get homesick quite often, ask tom. I'm glad tom is understanding and letting me go... hopefully he'll be ok with out me for a week ; ) I honestly didn't think that I would be going home till next christmas. IM SO EXCITED

now i just need to figure work out : /

What im looking foward to:

Getting to see my dog sabastian:

MOBY DICKS! (the best food ever, im making my dad stop in VA on the way down to Georgia to get me some) ...

my mouth is watering as I look at this picture... i could eat the whole thing even though it should be enough for 2. The chicken and rice is the most amazing thing I have ever had. This is the one thing i miss most... GOOD food. Rexburg def. lacks in that area .. and has no good food what so ever.

Oh... moby dicks. how i can't wait to eat you!
