Holidays smell SO good!

Thanksgiving and Christmas are seriously just around the corner and I am so excited! This years James and i will be traveling to Colorado for Thanksgiving. I think it will be fun to see the traditions that
James grew up with and to spend some fun time with his family. Last year, we were with my family and 
it was filled with babies and a lot of people! We had such a great experience though- there were three baby blessings and so many people that we love. What a great way to 
spend Thanksgiving, and what a great reminder of what Thanksgiving is all about.
This year, I am looking forward to making great memories with my other family :) It'll be fun to have some different weather too- maybe even some snow! 

Lately, James and I have been so busy with school and work, 
that we have had little time to think of the upcoming breaks or vacations, but we have had the amazingly fun
chance to have Rex and Amy and their little boy Adam live with us for the
month of November. Rex has been doing a rotation at the VA here in Tucson
and we had the extra room, so they came to live here! It has been so fun to have a little one around 
all the time and to be able to spend time getting to know Rex and Amy better. (Rex is my mom's brother fyi)
I think one part that James has really enjoyed has been the amazing meals that Amy has made for dinner! 
Check our Favorite Recipes page for some of the ones that we love that she has made.
It has also made me realize that I work too much! I want to be home cooking 
dinner and trying these yummy recipes out....How many years til we're done with school again?

The other things that are going on around here-
We just had Young Women's in Excellence for our ward it turned out GREAT! I am so glad that 
I am able to work with these wonderful girls and to be able to see them 
create and grow and gain a testimony or the love their Savior has for them. Check out the Personal Progress page for more about that night.

well a few days later and Thanksgiving has already come and gone...see next post :)
