New Tradition

This weekend, Nate and I started a new tradition.  Our very own road trip to chop down our Christmas tree.  We had so much fun.  This has been something that Nate has always wanted to do, so this year we made it happen.  We packed up and left Saturday morning and made our way to Price, Utah. Roxy was sick... so she tagged along and slept THE ENTIRE DRIVE...

Picked up our tag and map at a local Price hardware store.  

We made a few stops, hiked tonz, played in the snow

 took a family picture

And found our tree!

  Roxy had a blast

It's not the prettiest/fullest tree, but the fact that we worked so hard to find it and bring it home, makes it my very favorite tree we've ever had.

It was such a great family actitvity.  I can not wait to do it again next year and for all the years to come.

In all of my 25 years, I have never been too much of a crafter.  I'd do a craft here and there for Young Womens, but I would never ever spend my own money on a craft. 

Thesse past 6 months or so, I have been obsessed with "The Wood Connection" and have crafts coming out of my ears.  I love Love LOVE painting, decorating, and gluing. 

Some of my friends and I started doing craft night a few months ago.  One night a month we all get together, go to The Wood Connection, Michaels, Joanns, etc and pick out a craft to do that night.  We have all enjoyed it so much and hope to continue doing it monthly in the future.  Here are a few of my latest crafts.

The "O" in the HOME is interchangeable. I have a few different ones that I made. This is obviously the July month "O".

I'm so excited for Halloween so I can put up my new decorations!
A pen pot I made for work. We've yet to lose a pen :)

This year I decided to do something different for Nate's birthday.  He's never had a surprise party, so I thought it'd be fun to try it this year.  It ended up being PERFECT! It stayed a surprise until he turned the corner of our backyard.  Thank you to everyone who helped out that day .  It couldn't have been more perfect. 

On our way to the party. He had no idea :)

I just want everyone out there to know how much I love this boy.  He is SUCH an amazing husband.  We had the oppurtunity to talk in church today and he absolutely amazed me.  His talk was so powerful and came straight from his heart.   He loves the gospel so much.  He just amazes me more and more everyday.  I don't know what I would do without him.  I love you sweetheart!!!

IcE iCe BaBy

 A few weekend ago, my dad invited Nate and I to go Ice Fishing up at Strawberry Lake.  Neither of us had ever been before and decided we'd go try it out! WE HAD A BLAST!!!

Now we hunt?

So lately Nate has been talking about hunting,  getting a gun,  and putting in a tag (or something like that) with some friends.  This is all SO foreign to me.  But... he seems really excited about it and so I want to be excited too.  A few days before Valentines Day, Nate went to look at guns with his buddy Jason.  I asked Jason to make sure that he knew what gun Nate wanted the most but to also make sure that Nate didn't buy it.  Jason did an awesome job, told me what gun it was and where to get it.  So... Nate's Valentines present was this...
A Remington 740!!

He was so excited about it.  He works so hard for our little family and so I wanted to treat him to this.  Something I knew he would never buy for himself. 
So of course, we needed to go try it out before he went hunting with it.  We went to a shooting range WAY OUT WEST but had a blast! The old man there was trying so hard to be patient with us, but obviously we were new at this whole thing.  He cussed out Nate a few times. Gotta love old man talk :)

Target 200 yards out there.

I even took a shot... will probably never do it again though. haha

Not bad for our first time :)
We had a blast starting this new adventure together. I'm pretty sure I'll let just Nate and his boys take it from here though.
