Proud Uncle Ben!
Thanksgiving was good timing this year. Both Ben and I felt that we really needed a break, from work, from school, just basically from life. We remember that this time last year we took off to Walt Disney World right after thanksgiving, and that thought is a little depressing sense we aren't going anywhere except back to life this time.

For Thanksgiving LeAnne and Jason were kind enough to take us in and let us stay up there Thursday afternoon to Friday afternoon. Thanksgiving was great, except for my camera breaking. I got around 3 pictures until I had to stop,and then I used LeAnne's much nicer camera to catch the atmosphere of the day. Check out her blog if you want to see those pictures. After feeling like we were all going to puke, we watched Incredibles with Zachy, and eventually everyone went to Bed.

We got up early to go to Home Depot for Uncle Ben who got some new tools and a ladder and then hit Jeremiah's for breakfast. Yum! After that it was back to Home Depot where we found Jason a ladder and then home. By that time, Ben, John and I all felt like it was time to go back home and we got home around 3:00. Ben and I decided to go see James Bond, finally, and really enjoyed it. After that we went to the mall and looked for suites which, after James Bond, some how didn't look just right. (he wears $1500+ suits in the movie and is well... JAMES BOND!!!) So now we're home and relaxing from a tireing day of relaxing.

Happy Thanksgiving!

The Great Dissapointment...

Here's a couple of picture of Ben and I at the Ward BBQ before I had to leave for work. ABC4 was full of Ute fans so I had my hands full wearing my "Quest" shirt from BYU. Sadly to say, BYU lost by a massive amount because of 6 turn overs. Lame. Oh well, always next year right? Still... we've got some interesting photos. Too bad Ben's such a goof! But hey, that's part of the reason that I love him. Right? Right...

Not funny

Ben thinks he's funny and found a solution to my problem. I don't think it is very amusing.... Doctor update coming soon.

So the last three days this has been the scene around my house. Piles of Klenex. Yes, it is a little gross, and yes, that is Cold Stone next to it. My allergies have been FREAKING out and if I'm not sneezing, I'm blowing my nose or sniffing. Needless to say, Ben has been very patient. He says that he's sleeping with a lightsaber because Darth Vader is sleeping next to him (that's me). He thinks he is so funny. But he was very sweet yesterday buying Kung Fu Panda for me and ice cream. He did put his foot down today though and told me to get an appt. with an allergy specialist. I think he'd like some sleep for the first time since we've been married. So... finally I did. Tuesday will be the day! Hopefully they can figure out what is wrong and we can fix it! Just as long as I can keep drinking Dt. Pepsi/Coke! Thanks for everyone who has been so kind while I've had the sniffles!

Oral History

So for my Media History class we have to interview someone about their life and the effect media has taken on them. I thought no one better than Dad, who has so many wonderful stories! So I will be periodically updating the blog with some of his answers and bites from his interview. It'll be so nice to have records of this!
