Decking the halls...or really just the living room

 We decorated our little apartment a few weeks ago. Here is just a few shots of our trees and the rest of the decorations. Sorry there is a lot of pictures of the tree, its hard to tell which pic is the best by the little icons I have to choose from.
 But first, look hos I found brandon talking on the phone the other day. What a goofy guy.

 Big pretty bows on every present!
 And i made cute little tags for each present.

 I made these little trees out of a book and left over wedding scrap book paper. I think they are pretty cute.


Did I ever mention Brandon and I were on and Ultimate Frisbee team this semester? Well this was my first time EVER playing ultimate Frisbee and i absolutely loved it! we had so much fun! We were in the beginner league and let me tells you, we were pretty good. We made it to the championship game! it wasnt easy, especially since the captain of the team we beat to get to the championship was a major...jerk (i could say much worse) and he was upset that we played a good game and beat them. He protested the game and made it so the championship was postponed about a week. We were really angry with him cause like I said he was a....jerk( nicest name i can think of to describe him) We cant fully describe the anger and frustration we felt towards this kid...anyways, i probably shouldnt go into this, it stirs up a lot of really frustrating memories. But we went to the championship game (in your FACE Jace kellog) . But we lost. The team we played seemed like they would way fun to play, but when the time came to actually play, they got really dirty and caddy when we started pulling ahead. Oh well, here is a picture of a team and a reminder of all the good memories we did have in spite of all the drama.

Thanksgiving Break

For thanksgiving we drove over to Kennewick. Brandon's brother Michael got married the day after thanksgiving so we spent ost of our thanksgiving decorating a church for the reception. We Had a great drive there and back. the roads were perfectly clear the entire drive and We downloaded the Hunger games onto our Ipod so brandon got to listen to it while he drove. He really liked it and he is looking forward to listening to the second one on our drive home for christmas! (which is on friday! yay!) We just hope the roads are as clear as they were at thanksgiving. Here is just a few pictures from thanksgiving and the wedding.

 Bubba, sidonia and brandon did the thanksgiving Turkey trot on thanksgiving morning.

 Here is the gym all decorated for the reception. For the record, those little balloons hanging from the lights, well those are covered in lace, and let me tell you it took a lot of lace! and i spent a total of probably 4 hours cutting lace and i dont even want to count the amount of time we also spent gluing it on. Yikes! was it worth it? you tell me.

 Brandon and His brother michael
 These three women(brandons mom and 2 of her friends) have a really embarrasing tradition of dancing on the table and their childrens receptions. Thank goodnesss they didnt do this at our wedding! haha
Brandon is such a cute little floor sweeper!
