October was pretty uneventful. Howevah, I heard that Isaiah and Jason dressed up as pirates for Halloween, and that's nothing short of awesome! Melinda made these amazing costumes with her own two hands of course.
I got to go to Missouri for Thanksgiving, and I was so glad I did. It was so very fun to be with Melanie, Luke, and Merrill. We even got to go to the Nauvoo temple while I was there. That temple is simply beautiful. I couldn't get over the wood floors found throughout the inside, so cool.
My whole family was able to be together up in Utah for Christmas which was fantastic. I just realized that I don't have any pics to show evidence of the grand time we all had together, so this shot of Melanie dressing her tree with Luke and Merrill in Missouri right after Thanksgiving will have to do.
I moved to Arizona! Yes, that's right, I just can't stay away from the good 'ol AZ. This place was definitely calling to me, so I decided to move down to Gilbert at the beginning of January. I moved in with my good friend, Karen, and have LOVED being in Arizona. I've been substitute teaching down here while I look for a job. Substituting has actually been a lot more fun than I ever thought it would be, so that's a relief. One of the many things I love about Arizona is that I feel so at home here. For some reason I feel like I fit in with the people down here so much more than I ever did up in Salt Lake, so it's been really easy to make new friends. PLUS Grandma Fern just lives up the road from me a short ways! Life is good!
This is Pete Yorn's guitar pick from a concert I went to in Tempe on Valentine's Day. February's highlight? I think yes.
March was super fun and busy. I turned 26! Can you believe that?! I know, crazy. Here are some of the high points...
Here I am at the ballpark on my bday. I had lots of bday fun in spite of the fact that I turned 26! Ugh!
Matt and I made it up to Powder Mtn while I was visiting. It was so much fun! I wish I was up there right now cause I heard it's been snowing like crazy this past week. This was a good day.
This month I've been really lucky. I was able to go to Missouri AGAIN and see Melanie on her birthday! Take a look at how grown up Merrill looks. He's so cute and cheezes it up for the camera every time. It was lots of fun to be with them.
Bikram Yoga out this Friday with my new found gay friend, Alan, so you better believe I'll be blogging about that!
