Back in February, Kristofor, Kelso, Joseph and I took a road trip to see my big brother Ben and his family in Renton, WA for my nephew Evan's baptism. I've put off blogging about this because there's so much to share! So instead of going over every detail, I'll just post pictures. :)

The trip up:



 Excuse the bed head
 Kristofor has a mouth full of Swedish Fish in this picture. 

Wow, what dorks. 

 My sister Rileigh and her girls

 My brothers - Ben and Joseph

 Cousins! Ellie and Clover

 Ummm, Joseph?!

And that's all for now! There's more to come.

Isn't it weird how we label days 'good' or 'bad'? Well anyway, today was a mixed bag. It started fine, then turned sour, I was feeling pretty crummy and decided I needed an attitude adjustment. Said a little prayer for help, changed the way I was thinking, spent some time with some good people, and now my day's turned around. I've got a lot accomplished and just have a few more things to check off my To Do list before it's time to relax with some pineapple sherbet. 

Kristofor got me this ^^^ print for Valentine's Day. I love it and can't wait to get it framed (I'll wait for the 50% off framing sale at Michael's, and even then I'm sure it's gonna cost a little chunk of change because it's not small)

I keep telling people "spring is coming. I can feel it."

But mostly I'm just saying that because I need winter to be over. I feel like my life is on hold while I wait out the weather. 

I'm so grateful for the little things I have to look forward to. Valentine's Day, then my birthday, and then maybe spring will really be here!

this is hallowe'en

For the first time since we've been together, Kristofor and I carved pumpkins for Halloween. I never knew how much easier those pumpkin carving kits make things!
Can you guess who did which one? Haha.

 I'm trying to copy the face he always makes in his pictures.. looking away with a blank expression.

On Halloween night we went to my in-laws. Every year Kristofor's dad makes really yummy chili and the grand-kids come show their costumes off and trick or treat around the neighborhood. 
This is as close to a costume as we get with Kelso.

 I wore my candy corn colored clothes..
 And Kristofor wore his "nerd" clothes. This is the outfit he wore when he made a movie with his brothers..
Notice his Goosebumps hat - he used to be a member of the Goosebump's #1 fan club, and they mailed this to him in a coffin shaped box.. He's pretty proud of it, really. 
 Here they are all together - the three nerds. 

All together, it was a great Halloween - I ate all the candy I could and vowed the next day to start eating healthier.. But I have some Oh Henry's that are calling my name.

here she goes again..

There will always be a place in my heart that belongs to this little mongrel. 

I've never regretting getting a dog.

Not once.

Guess we're stuck with each other.

smaller than a dime

Kristofor got me this necklace for our anniversary.. isn't it the sweetest? I had seen it on the internet a few weeks earlier and showed him, but didn't want to spend the money on it. 
 I didn't even think he would get it for me. I'm so glad he did - I just love it.
