Merry Christmas

Well this year for Christmas was very exciting. We woke up to a tree filled with presents under it from each other. Both Rob and I were in dyier need of clothes so we can stop wearing the same thing every week. I got 2 pairs of pants, shirts, boots, and a few movies. Rob also got 2 pairs of pants, shirts, movies and a clock. And the big "family" present (but mostly for me) was a new camera. Mine was lost when my family went wave running during the summer, so it has been a while since we had any nice pictures taken. It was Thanksgiving day when I was going through all the black friday ads that I found the camera, we thought it was such a good deal for the camera we couldn't pass it up. We got a Kodak EasyShare M340 and it has been so much fun to have and take pictures of our random happenings.

My side of the family just decided to take an angel of the tree at my parents ward and get them something and we would just have a nice family dinner on Christmas. My parents had what we call funeral potatoes and a honey baked ham (Compliments of my work that gave everyone a $50.00 gift card to Honey Bank Ham store) and rolls, and just a fun time to be together as family.
Also about one week before Christmas we got to find out what Elizabeth was having. Drum roll please . . . . . . It's a boy!!! We are so excited and on Christmas we got to watch the movie that was taken when they went in for their ultrasound. The name they are thinking of is Kolton James Vanfleet. We will see when the baby arrives May 8, 2010.
For Robs side of the family our gift to everyone was family pictures, so my brother David was willing to come on Christmas to his parents house and wait to take pictures of all the brothers and sister and grandkids and all. At that party his parents got us a spice rack that I have wanted since we got married and also a clock that in the center it says "Families are Forever".

(not the exact same one)
It has been a great year full of ups and downs and a great Christmas season for us. We will see what 2010 has to bring us. I will try to post more often its just so hard with only having the internet at work and not at home.

Merry Chirstmas!!

Schools Out!

Well I am happy to say that I am done with school for the semester. My final for my writing class was a group presentation with a persuassive essay. Which was pretty easy since I was the one that had to bring the paper together and edith the final paper. For my math final it was a 33 questions test over everthing I learned through the class. I happy to say I got a 91% on the test. Well if you care to know my overall grade here it is.
I got an A in both classes.

I am so happy to be done, I can come home from work and be stress free and not have to worry about a test or a paper that is due on Wednesdays. No onto my barbering/cosmetology class that starts 1-11-2010. I will be going from 5-10 pm Monday through Thursday. I will be one worn out lady. I am going to apologize in advance to my husband for anything that happens this semester (laziness, onry, tired, grumpy etc..) but until then I am free to do what I want.

Family Pictures

Well its that time of year again to take family pictures. For my family it always seems like such a chore to get them done. As our family is getting bigger by the year there is so much to consider for one hour of taking pictures such as: peoples schedules, photographer, color of shirts to wear, where to take the picture at. My mom loves to color coordinate or everyone wear the same general color (which I think looks great). So this year we choose to wear black shirt and be outside and go to the state capital. I have a friend from work ( that I just love her work and how she edits the pictures and I was able to get my mom to agree to go with her. I would recommend her to anyone, she is so patient and just a ball of energy. She makes sure you are happy with the pictures before you leave. So without further delay here are just a couple of the day. Note these are before Tien has edited anything of them.

This one is my favorite
