Sick, sick, sick!

So earlier this week Brandon and I both got sick with the flu! Since being married we've both been sick, but never together. We've still been going to work and running errands but when we are home we've been exhausted. It's still cute how we've both taken extra time to take care of eachother.

I do have to say how grateful I am to be married to a worthy priesthood holder. Earlier this week he was able to give me a blessing and about half way through I was feeling half way better! I am so grateful that Brandon lives and keeps his covenants and that through faith we can be healed. I am so grateful for the gospel and our temple marriage.

Merry Christmas!

No Cavity Club

Today was Brandon and my first official visit to the dentist as a married couple. Great news! Both of us have no cavities :) I felt that at any moment they were going to take our picture and put it on the 'No Cavity Club' Board.

Since our appointments were in the 2 o'clock hour we ended up being done around 3. It was so nice to be able to spend more time with each other. We ended up going to the new Denny's in American Fork (it had just opened this morning). It wasn't too bad, just seemed a little slow...we had fun though. :) After Denny's, Brandon and I went to Costco and ended up getting a few more Christmas movies and the new J.K. Rowling book. (I can't wait to start it!).

We then came home and I made hot cocoa and we watched Christmas Vacation, it was my first time watching it and quite hilarious. It will definately become a favorite...Now I just got done with working for a bit and I'm writing away...

I did apply for a position I would love to achieve! It's an Office Support position for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latterday Saints. :) I have been having some problems with my current job with not feeling appreciated and all in all wanting a better enviroment. I've thought about searching for positions in the church and as soon as I saw this one I immediately applied. I have an amazing feeling that things will turn out ok (no matter what happens), but it still is a ray of hope. I would truely appreciate the prayers, I know this would be a wonderful opportunity for learning and service.

I do need to get going. Brandon and I are planning on finishing the Book of Mormon by the end of the year and we need to study!! Have a great night and Merry Christmas :)

P.S. Congrat's to James and Jerrica Cook for their 1 year wedding anniversary!! We love you both so very much!

Christmas Shopping!

So this morning I went out into town to do a little Christmas shopping for Brandon. I'm not going to lie, there are a TON of people out! Not that it was bad or anything, just busy. ACK. I do have to say it's been a lot of fun going out and Christmas shopping for others (especially with Brandon). Last night I started wrapping up Christmas presents for those of our close family and friends. I was so happy to see presents under the tree, it just makes the tree look complete. I think it made me even happier to think that the presents under the tree so far aren't even for us! I am very excited to see everyone's faces when they recieve them!! So excited, I hope they like them...

Tomorrow I am making a roast with mashed potatoes and what not. I'm very excited, we're not sure if we're inviting anyone else, but I'm positive there will be left overs so if anyone wants to come to dinner tomorrow after church just give us a heads up ;)

Merry Christmas!!!
