Another Late Night/ Early Morning...

So, I'm here at work sitting at the computer pretty much completly bored. I have up-loaded some photos to my Facebook account, labeled music on the computer put new photos on my SD Card for my digital frame and checked every e-mail I have. There is a mexican resturant across the street that is open 24/7 and there are people over there arguing at each other, I can almost hear what they are saying through the window, maybe it's a good thing I can't hear them though.

We had a good Thanksgiving... had dinner in Pocatello with Colby's parents, his sister and her family at her in-laws. There was a lot of food! After dinner we relaxed for a bit and then headed to Rigby. We were having family pictures with all my mom's family the next day, so we decided to go up a bit early.

We were at my Grandparents till almost 10 p.m. then we headed to my mom's where everyone was still awake and my littlest sister was debating she wanted to brave the Black Friday rush to get a camera. We looked at ads until about 1 a.m. when she finally decided she wanted to go. Colby, Val and I headed out the door at 4:05 a.m., to get to Staples in Idaho Falls that opened at 6 a.m. I went to Big 5 to get Colby something for Christmas and he headed to Sportsmans to save a place in line for another one of my little sisters. Val got her camera, there were only 2 available at the Idaho Falls store so she was super lucky! She was also super happy. After we all hit our own stores we went back to Sportsmans and picked up another gift, went to Shoe Carnival to see if my Aunt was still there and the to Desert Book, more gifts found.

After that Val and I took a nap. Colby didn't feel tired.... what a weirdo (just kidding). He ended up taking a nap later. When I woke up from my nap, we went to see my other sister, Min at work, they weren't busy at all so we went in and had lunch at Papa Kelsey's. Then it was time to get ready for pictures.

The picture session went pretty good... lots of flashes, funny faces and warm bodies. There was one funny that got the whole family laughing and smiling... one of my uncles tooted, he was standing right in the middle of everyone too! Needless to say the whole family smiled and the photo guy snapped a few shots. While different families were getting individual pics Colby was teaching tie tying lessons to my two cousins and my uncle. One of my cousins just got his mission call to Des Monies Iowa, so he wanted to know the best knot.

Photos were done and went to see another family in Rigby. I played with 2 little girls while Colby helped with some sound system wiring. I think I got the good part of the deal, playing with the girls and having them cuddle up and fall asleep on my lap. :o) That's why we DON'T need our own kids, we can play with someone elses.

It was back to work for me Saturday morning (oh, that's today, well kind of) and then I had 8 hours off and then it was back to work the graveyard. It's been a long day!

That's about all I can think of.... I'm sure if I get really bored again later I might find something else to write about!

Don't know what to title this posting because I'm not sure what I'm going to post about! It's 4:45 a.m., which first of all means I need to go do a bed check. I'm at work and am bored. I'm also starting to get sleepy, I still have another good 3 hours to go. It's been a long night, the next 3 hours will probably be long too. Blah!
Since I'm bored I was looking at the photos I have on the computer and decided to post this one. It looks almost to natural doesn't it? We may be girls but we still now how to fight. I did dislocate Lesley's shoulder once--- I swear I didn't hit her that hard.

Something I like to call US

I made this just after we got married, while I was still applying for jobs and being bored at home while Colby was working. I had to keep myself busy and entertained some how. I ended up making copies for our Mom's for Mother's Day. ENJOY!

recently.... in a nut shell

First of all, I think Colby did pretty good for his first Blog posting, but then again I might be bias. He is awesome! I think I am the one that should be in the garage most of the time though.

We are getting things more organized in the apartment as time goes on. We at least know where most things are now, which is great. We have our address changed on everything- including the bills, darn it all.

Our new ward is AWESOME, even if they are having us speak. It for sure feels more like home than our last ward.

Colby is still working for the railroad, but is "laid off " meaning he only works two days a week. I am working 3 days a week at Square One, two of my shifts are graveyards, but I chose to take an extra grave and then not work on Sundays.

We have had a little extra fun these last few days, I walked into my closet Sunday to get clothes and the floor was wet. At first I thought it was just because my hair was dripping from getting out of the shower, nope something was leaking. Come to find out the tub needs re-sealed, so a little bit of caulk will do the trick (hopefully).

Music We Like
