I'm back!

Well, after quite a long break since I originally created this blog, I am, at last, back again. Life has been a whirlwind these past several weeks. Kent and I have lived in our wonderful home for a year this month, and we have loved every minute of it. We have definately made some incredible friends up here and created some wonderful memories. We went to Yellowstone in November on a whim. We just kind of woke up one Saturday and thought, 'hey, let's go to Yellowstone.' We did the Lower Loop and Jackson in an afternoon, ending with an Old Faithful viewing at 9:00 at night! We enjoyed hiking through the beauty up there and are so glad we had that opportunity!

December has dealt us an interesting hand. We've been looking for jobs in the area, but unsuccessfully so far. So as of now, our house if For Sale (so sad!) and may be moving to Boston in a few weeks!

So, since we're moving after Christmas, I decided to graduate this semester! So my parents and Opa came up this past weekend, and I GRADUATED! It's funny how I transferred up here after Kent graduated, did 2.5 semesters at BYU-I, and now I have a BS degree from here! Haha, anyway I have a 4.0 up here, and I AM DONE WITH SCHOOL! (unless I go crazy and decide to go back for something...we'll see) Kent was Awesome and wrote a little song (to the song from Top Gun) and made a banner that he hung at Applebee's. We all went to dinner there and it was hanging up, and he broke out into song right there in front of everyone! It was awesome! He also planned a little graduation party in this cool loft thing at Hogi Yogi, where he, my parents, sister, and Opa had food and played Wii for a couple hours! It was hilarious watching my parents work the Wiimote...haha.

Well, now that I am done with school, I get to clean and pack and pack and clean. We are driving both of our cars to WA this weekend for Christmas, and we will leave my truck and a load of our stuff there for safe storing until we come back again someday. And on January 1st, we are headed to El Salvador for TEN glorious days! So Merry Christmas all and until next time, let it snow, because that's all it's doing up here in Idaho Falls anyway.
