On to Christmas... We were spoiled once again. I got everything I asked (except a puppy, which wont happen until we have a backyard :( ) and so did Ty. I got a guitar and a knee length trench coat from Santa and from Ty I got some super cute shoes, jacket, and the cutest was a teapot that was filled with pieces of paper that have my favorite things to do, so when Ty and I are looking for a date, I can pull out a paper and have to do the thing on the paper. I thought that was super cute and very thoughtful of my favorite buddy! All of you "Office" fans out there might remember Jim gave a similar present to Pam for Christmas one year. CUTE!!! Ty got some clothes, books, shoes, DVD's and of course his ONE item on his wish list an Ipod Touch!!! I am telling you, the kid hasnt taken his hands off of it since he opened it!!! I think Santa created a monster!
One more piece of good news. One of my bestest buddies in the whole world my little Meg had her baby!!!! It was a total surprise, she went into labor and had her Christmas day!!! She wasnt due for a few more weeks even!! We love you Meg and Kade, Congrats on the little squirt. DeJanae is BEAUTIFUL!!! And I cant believe we are old enough to have one of these!
3) Well I have been kind of sick for the last two-ish months. Dr appt after Dr. appt FINALLY we found out (and I knew it all along) I have to have my gall-bladder taken out on MONDAY!!! YA-freaken-HOO for finding out what was wrong AND getting the stupid thing taken out, but BOO for having to actually have surgery! I have never really had surgery before (minus oral surgery) so its going to be quite the experience. I am a little nervous, but mostly excited to feel good again.

Parker and Zach and the beginning of the HUGE Nerf mess.This one is a little blurry but this is Zach and the BIG automatic Nerf gun
After that i got sick, AGAIN!!!! I know, what the crap!!! This time I was hacking up a lung and all sorts of goop, and then I lost my voice, completely. Luckily though we were laying tile in our kitchen and guest bathroom so my spirits were kept high. Man was tile laying hard work. Neither Ty and I had done that before so we didnt quite know what we were getting into. I LOVED it, Ty, not so much. But its ok, he was such a trooper. We had uncle Pete there to instruct us and basically do all the hard work, so a BIG thanks to him!! Here are a few pics of us laying tile and the finished product.
Ty cutting the nasty linoleum before we started tearing it out. Holy crap, this was the HARDEST part, it took HOURS to get the old floor out.
This is the MESS we had to live with all weekend. It was so annoying!!
Good ol' Peter. What a champ! It was his fall break and he spent it with us instead of his family :(
Grouting. This is almost the finished project. I just realized this is the picture that had the closest final result
This weekend we went to Ty's house in Logan for the BYU/Utah State game and conference. We are glad the game is over (things were starting to get REALLY ugly with the fans) and BYU wasn't playing as well as we wanted or expected in the last quarter of the game. For this I MUST say; People who are sports fans, enjoy the game, cheer for your team, but why stoop to the LOW level of picking fights with the opposing teams fans and swear and say obscene and rediculous things (that make you look like a complete idiot) to the players and opposing fans just because they happen to like the other team. Its takes the fun out, and again, you look like a complete idiot jerk. I was less than impressed with some BYU and USU fans to say the least. I better stop before I get carried away.
This week I will try to update our blog again and try to make it a habit. Maybe I will get Ty to write again (he is a better writer than me).
Another random thing that happend was on Sunday while we were at church which is at 8:30 in the morning and I'm pleased to report that the gospel is still true even that early in the morning! So we don't the normal opening, song, prayer annoucnements and we get to the Sacrament song which for some reason in our ward no one ever knows. Why do people feel the need to sing songs that no one knows! I'm not even kidding there was no one singing for most of the song! Anyway the Sacrament song ends and all of a sudden the Stake President who was there on some Stake Business gets up and tells everyone that there isn't anybread so he procedded to give us a brief history of the art of administering the SAcrament since 1830, riviting stuff! In all of my 23 years I've never been to church were someone forgot the bread, how crazy is that! Luckily the person with the bread arrived and all was well in Zion! Well thats about all I can think to write!
Ok so first off about our summer... Ty and I have been slowly updating and re-doing our cute little condo. First was the paint job. We painted one wall in our kitchen green, one wall in our living room purple (I know, sounds crazy), our bedroom yellow, and our office blue. I figured, we are young, spry, and "super cool" so we should do something fun and crazy. And that we did. Once i figure out how to post pics, I will show you JUST how fun it is. Next we are going to rip up the disgusting linoleum floor in our bathrooms and kitchen and add tile. Then relplace the countertops, and nasty sink. It will be a long process, but a stinkin awesome one. Plus we are still working on the decor of house. Lets face it, its expensive, and lets face it again, I am a horrible chooser because I am picky and a perfectionist. Lucky Ty!!
What else... I think I mentioned how we haven't had one weekend home in August. Our last trip to end the summer with a bang we went to Jackson Hole. Ty's family has a house up there and LAbor Day weekend was his imidiate families turn to take it. Being my first Jackson Hole experience I was pleasantly surprised. Friday night we went downtown to an ACTUAL shoot out they have. Like a for real, old school cowboy shoot out from the 1800's. It was awesome. Then we walked around cute downtown and went into all the shops. All we bought was a christmas ornament :( But then we went to the cutest play. It was Cat Balou and it was SO funny. It was in this TINY quaint theater where there were like 15 rows to seat people. It was great, they had incredible voices, it was funny, and very entertaining. Saturday we played a nice friendly, competive game of mini golf with Ty's family and we are pleased to announce that Ty took first place and I took second (by ONE lousy point) out of his whole family. We raced down the alpine slide and went to a cute Mexican restaurant (of which i cant remember the name), and played Nerts (or Pounce as they call it) all night long. Sunday we went to the visting members ward for church, which was pretty packed and took a long Sunday nap. That night after dinner we went on a mountain safari looking for wild animals trip. We saw a few HUGE moose, a bunch of elk, and to top it all off A BEAR!!! It was in a tree about 30 or 40 yards away. (Once again, I will post pictures, when i figure it out). It was awesome. I think Ty's family thought I was a loon for my, lets put it, rather excited reaction. For those of you who really know me, can probably picture the seen I caused now. Anywho, the trip was a success and a great way to end the summer. As for now I think this blog is getting REALLY long, so i will spare you more details for now, and will catch up on next week posting entitled "The incredibly awesome lives of Ty and Jody". Until then TTFN and have a good one!
