Christmas Tree

Well, here are some of the pictures people have been wanting to see. It is our very first Christmas Tree!!! It STILL is not complete... my childhood ornaments are still at my mom's house so those will soon be added. But we do have presents under it now! :)

...and more

Our tree is up and ready for lights!

the lights and star are on

All done! Complete with presents :)

Here is a little bonus picture of our stockings!!! We do not have a mantle above our fireplace so we had to put the stocking hangers on the edge of a table in the living room. Works for now.

Holiday's are here!

Well, this is my favorite time of year! I absolutely love the snow, christmas lights, family, and of course food :) Everyone is so happy around the holidays. I cannot wait to bake cookies with my grandma and make pies with Jon. He is a great pie maker! Jon and I put up our Christmas tree already, I know it is a little early but we wanted to see what it looked like before my family goes to cut down their real one, that way if it was not pretty we could get one too. I LOVE it though! It is perfect and Jon and I had so much fun decorating it. We still have to add all of my ornaments from my mom's house. That will give us something to do this weekend after Thanksgiving. I will post pictures when it is complete!

Married Life

Well, it has been 3 months now that we have been married. 1/4 of a year! So far so good. I just figured out a cleaning schedule and list of chores that need to be done every week thanks to a recent friend Kristina!!! Thanks :) I am starting to get into the swing of things around here with dinners and subbing. Now I feel I am ready to tackle a weekly cleaning routine. I will let you know how it goes soon. I probably will not start it for two weeks because Jon and I are house sitting for my Aunt and Uncle next week, and this week is almost over.

Jon is loving his job as a meter reader, and so am I! He is home everyday by 4:00. It is so nice to be able to get home around the same time and have some down time before dinner and nightly chores.

So far subbing is pretty great for me. I have definitely discovered I like the 3rd graders and older kids much more than the youngins... not that I do not love the young kids, but the older kids are so much more independant and cooperative! It just makes the day so much easier when you only have to explain something once, and only occasionally twice. Pretty sure I am hoping for a 3rd or 4th grade job for next year over a kindergarten one!

A side note:
I am planning my parents suprise 25th wedding anniversary party and my mom is not cooperating! UGH! She is blowing all of my ideas of how to get them there. I am trying to convince her to have family pictures taken with my grandparents but she is not liking that idea. Just an FYI for those of you coming up on your 25th, or a birthday or anything... if you know you have something big coming up and your kids tell you to be somewhere for something... JUST DO IT! I might have to just give in and tell her about the party and make her feel really bad about ruining her suprise.

On another note...
Just some exciting news:
Jon and I got our wedding album in the mail today! It turned out so nice, I absolutely love it!

Well June has successfully flown by. Next weekend is the last weekend in June! Which means HOOPFEST! My life has been consumed by last minute wedding details and bridal showers. I cannot wait to go and watch some street ball and just relax next weekend. Then it will be back to the grit and grime of last minute craziness :) I am fully enjoying every minute of planning a wedding, but I also am so ready for the final product and our new life! We went and got our apartment tuesday. I am in love with it. I cannot wait to move in all of our things and start our new life on our own. It will be stressfull and scary I am sure, but much needed!

Wrapping Up

Well, we did it! We are officially Teachers! Graduation was so much fun, we got to see all of our friends again and remember what it is like to actually be in a college town. These past four years have definitely been the best years of our lives. We look forward to our wedding day that is quickly approaching and cannot wait to move out into our own place to call home :)

April 8th

WOW! February 27th was the last time I was on here. That seems like so long ago, time flies! Well, a lot has been going on since then I dont even know where to start. Maybe I should get better at blogging on a daily basis. The newest news in our lives is that we both got new eyeware. Haha. Jon is trying out contacts and I have new glasses. I still am battling with the fit though. I have gone in twice now to have them adjusted... that is the drag, but once I get them right I will be set for another two years. Yippee! Not much else going on other than the countdown until graduation. I am done student teaching in only 3 weeks!!! Can you believe it?? Jon only has 4 more weeks. It will be so nice to be able to take a day off and just relax... then I will probably head back to sub :) Well, that is all for now.
