I'm Learning!

Out to Dinner once a month. P.F. Changs.. mmm...

goofing off in the car!

One of the many sunsets...

hiking in Arizona... not much to see...

Movie nigh is a regular occasion.

I just changed my background by myself. Wow... it really wasn't hard but I'm still learning how to do all of this. Sorry life is boring at the moment but here are a few photos of what we do here in Arizona. Mostly we hang out with our friends Dan and Devan watching movies on our couch cushions in the living room, playing games, hiking, going to Costco on saturday for sample lunch, or whatever else we can do for free or close to that.

It's been a While

Hello everyone,
Sorry it has been so long since I've posted last. I guess the holidays were a bit crazy. Or I just didn't feel like typing. Anyhoo... our Thanksgiving and Christmas season was great. We got to go home for one thing and see our family which I am very thankful for. You don't realize how much they do for you until your are far away from them. Sunday dinners, hugs, smiles, playing with your nieces and nephews, going to lunch, or just hanging out playing games. We sure miss you all and can't wait to come home for good. I will say the only great thing about Arizona is that when we drove home from Utah for Christmas it was 9 degrees when we left and 70 when we arrived in Phoenix. I love the sun and I'm grateful that its here. If I had to live without my family and the sun I would be in big trouble by now. So if any of you have had enought of the cold.. you are welcome anytime to our little one bedroom apartment in the warmth.

This season I think more than anything has taught me to be grateful for what I have. We decided not to do gifts this Christmas and it was actually really nice. We were able to focus on what others really enjoyed and just appreciate the little things. We felt totally spoiled with the few things we did recieve from family. I think I've learned to be a little less selfish this season and I'm grateful. We have a home, food, family, friends, and love. I guess you don't need much else. (Except for a few hefty student loans) Thank you all for the blessing you are in our lives.
