Year in Review

As the year is ending I just wanted to share some of my favorite things I was able to do this past year. It was a pretty exciting one I'd say. I graduated! and I was able to take a lot of fun trips and had a lot of fun while at home!

January- Jensen and I went skiing quite a few times last winter. I think we had the best luck when we went. Almost every night before we went skiing and the day of we got tons of fresh snow!
February- Valentine's date with Jensen
March- Spring picnic in our front yard
April- I graduated!!! Yay! Jensen's family made a stop on their way down from Canada to California and my dad and Omi came for a visit from Idaho to celebrate with us.
May- My sister and I went to visit my Mama and Rick in Cape Cod. My mom moved there my freshman year at BYU and this was my first time being able to go out there to visit her. We also took a little trip down to New York while I was there, also my first time there!
June- Jensen and I went to visit Dena and Andrew and her cute kids in California. While we were there we took a trip to San Francisco. I had never been to California before either (In case you're wondering I went to 5 new states this summer! - also Rode Island and Connecticut as we drove from MA to NY). Another fun trip Jensen and I took in June was to Moab to go camping for the weekend.
July- In July Jensen and I went to the hot air balloon festival together with Suzanne and Jordan. A little later in the month my mom and Rick stopped by for a visit as they moved from Massachusetts to California.
August- In August we took our final trip of the summer to Canada for a family reunion then to visit my dad in Coeur d'Alene. Jensen's brother Morley came home from his mission in August, so all of Jensen's siblings and their spouses went for a visit. After a week in California we drove to Idaho for a week of boating, biking, and four wheeling with my dad and Lisa. This was one of the best summers I've ever had!
September- Jensen and I took an afternoon walk around a pumpkin patch and an apple orchard a nice fall afternoon.
October- Jensen and I dressed as Mary Poppins and Burt for Halloween! I loved our costumes. We also ate yummy chocolate cake to celebrate Jensen's birthday before an evening in Park City.
November- Suzanne got married in November! Which also meant another visit from my family. I loved having them here. I hadn't seen Nicole or my grandma since I got married a year and a half ago.
December- CHRISTMAS!!!! I love Christmas so much! Decorations, lights, cookies, making presents, Christmas music, Christmas movies, spending time with family.
Something else that I have really enjoyed this year is having more time to craft and learn how to sew now that I don't have homework to do when I'm done with work. And being able to take nice pictures with my new camera Jensen got me when I graduated. It's been great! Here's a few things I've been able to make this year.
