Merry Christmas!!

Finals are finally over, and we have some time to relax! It has been awesome to spend time with our family and our friends! We love this time of year! Since we've been so busy, we haven't had time to send out the Christmas card that we, and by "we" I mean I (Katie), made, so I decided to share it with you anyway! Those of you that are the lucky ones will actually get a real copy. I hope you like it!

Sorry this hasn't been the longest post ... since finals are over, we haven't had much to do! We have some fun holiday parties and friend get togethers planned, so we'll have a lot of pictures to post soon!

We hope you have had a great year! Have a VERY Merry Christmas, AND a happy new year!

Christmas is coming!!

So, the last two weeks have been SO busy! I really do mean to post more often, but school and work get in the way. We have done a bunch of fun things recently too, so it all evens out.

First of all, Thanksgiving break could not come soon enough! Thank goodness for the "blizzard" that got USU to close school early, we were able to miss traffic and horrible weather through Sardine Canyon. On Wednesday night we went and saw Harry Potter 7 with Tyler's family. It was everything we hoped it would be. We can't wait until part 2 comes out!On Thanksgiving we were able to spend time with both families -- it was great to see everybody, play games, and get some rest!

This past week of school was rather hectic, Tyler had a chemistry test on Wednesday, and I had a HUGE paper due for one of my least favorite classes. We just need to keep reminding ourselves that in two weeks the semester will be done!

On Saturday we decided to get a Christmas tree! It was so fun being able to put the tree up and to decorate it. Thank goodness for Shopko and a $30, pre-lit tree!

My awesome husband putting the tree up and fluffing up the branches! Don't worry, I helped! At the time I was turning paperclips into ornatment hooks so that we could actually decorate the tree.

Here's the final project (Unless we try and find some more fun ornaments, but I like it how it is)! Tyler is really great at decorating Christmas trees! I finally had him finish off the decorating because his side looked better than mine.

At this time of year, we are both so thankful for our family and for all that they do for us. We sure appreciate our family and friends for their good examples, and hope that everybody will enjoy this holiday season!

P.S. Happy Birthday Linda! We hope you had a great birthday!
