Goodbye 2011

2011- come and gone.
me oh my. I always feel like life goes by so slowly when it is crazy and packed with so much left to do but I feel like this year flew by. Where did it go??? My two semesters were so crazy and busy and packed full I could not wait for them to be over and now that they are I just can't even believe it! So much has happened but at the same time I have felt like it hasn't been one year and nothing has happened.

January = We moved into our first official appointment. and then we got a puppy. he was the cutest thing in the world. But I will admit he drove me insain. I learned that I have a lot to learn before I have children, which scares me cause he was only a dog. ha but I learned to love him so much. He became my little child. I wanted to have him for years to come but God had something else in mind.

February =  Andrew was in school and working hard. I was at home making things, like food and clothes. We played battleship at school, where you sit in a canoe in a pool with other teams and dump water into there boats and try to sink them. It was awesome! We did pretty good.. didn't win though. oh well there is always next year.

March = Still school and hanging out at home. trying to get through the semester. the saddest moment in our marriage happened when our little puppy Oakley died. It was such a sad sad sad sad couple of days. I cried a lot. We had so many fun walks with him. Andrew would kick the ice and he would go and chase it. It was adorable. He was adorable. And I miss him. 
On a good note, Taeden turned One! YAY

April = The end of winter semester for Andrew. We took a trip to St. George with Andrews family and celebrated Easter. It was wonderful. So much warmer than Rexburg! We then had to come back to Rexburg and both started school up. It was hard to go from doing whatever I wanted everyday to school everyday AND working 8 to 11 everyday. The classes made me crazy and they were hard but we learned so much that semester!

May = The one thing I do remember that happened was that Andrews best friend Logan came home from his mission in Japan. We got to go to California for a short weekend to see him and go to the homecoming. It was WONDERFUL. so much fun. We went to a Dodgers game and hung out with Andrews family then went and I got to meet Logan. It was so cute to see Andrew and Logan together. We are all going to be best friends for a very very long time.

June = Uhm I don't really know what happened in this month... lots of homework. I had to do a lot of photography assignments so I was usually always working on those. Andrew was playing and having fun and doing homework. We played on a grass volleyball team this semester.

July = I remember July to be a month of crazyness. Trying to get through with school. I just remember being so busy and full of things to do. However we did get to go camping with Justina and Curtis and Taeden which was really fun. Then for fourth of July we had a barbecue with my family and then went and watched the fireworks. I also turned 20 which is pretty great.

August  = Alex went to Kansas for a week. Andrew hung out in California for a week alone. Then we both went to Lake Powell for a week with Andrews family which is just wonderful! We then went back to California and prepared for Anna and Jordan's wedding.

September = We celebrated our ONE year Anniversary and Anna and Jordan's wedding.  We went to Clayton's Farewell in Utah. He is in New Zealand! What an amazing experience for him to serve the people there.

October = Andrew started working at the straw maze as a scarer. He did an amazing job. It was so fun to hear all of his stories.

November = We went to Time out for Women in St. George. then went back to St. George for Thanksgiving with the Sorensen's and celebrated Christmas as well.

December = We celebrated Andrew's 22nd Birthday. Finished off our Fall semester. I got my Associates  in general studies. We got to celebrate with the Turnbull family and see our great friend Sydnee's Farewell before she headed off to her mission in Ukraine!! And now we are celebrating Christmas and New Years with my Family in Kansas.

Pictures of these events to come soon :)

What are you looking to do and change with the new year? 
 My goals consist of working out, working on my photography and sewing, getting into BYU, moving to BYU and figuring out what to do after that. I am excited for this new year and new set of adventures. 
Andrew is looking forward to getting his associates, getting into BYU, getting into the communications program, moving to Provo, and just having an overall great year :) 

we hope everyone has a wonderful New Years Eve tonight. 
Heres to a new year :)
