Since I have not written on here for a few months, here are some of the main things that have happened to us since then:

1. Jordan and I both graduated from ISU. Jordan got his degree in Business Management and I got mine in Human Exceptionalities. Casey also graduated the same day as us, so my dad came to our graduation while my mom went to Casey's.

2.. Jobs: Jordan got a job and works out in American Falls. He enjoys it most days and is very thankful that he was able to get a job so fast out of college. I got a job working at a high school here in Pocatello and I will start teaching at the end of August.
3. June 23rd 2011: This was a very big day. We started out by going and signing papers to buy our house. We love our new house and are so thankful that we found something that we love. After we made the biggest purchase of our lives thus far, Jordan went to the dentist. This was another big event, since he hadn't been to the dentist for a "few" years. After the dentist and a few cavities, it was time to go to our ultrasound to find out the gender of our baby. SURPRISE!!!! We then found out that we are having twin boys. I was 20 weeks pregnant not only with one little guy but two. We were in a lot of shock... Well a lot of shock! We are so excited to meet these two little guys and now feel very blessed to not only have one but two! That weekend we moved into our new house. June 23rd will be a day we will never forget!

Here are a few pictures of my growing belly :)

4.We bought a new car so Jordan could commute a little cheaper. The down side is is that our new double stroller barely fits in the trunk, but it will work.
5. Cody comes home Aug. 19.... YAY
6. I love these two pictures:

Those are just some of the few big events that have happened to us. And now I better stop trying to blog or else I might go insane trying to make it look right!!! I might need some more practice with this posting thing.

I'm Thankful for... Christmas!

We just love this time of year. We love turkey, a week break of school, and Christmas lights. It can't get any better. We had such a wonderful Thanksgiving dinner, thanks to my wonderful Mother!!! It was fun to just be home in Raft River and spend some time with the fam and eat some great food. We also got to go Christmas tree hunting. We went with Terry and Sarah, Dillon and Tessa and Lucy and Tessa's parents and family. It was a lot of fun. After not seeing any sign of good trees, we were forced to stop since someone got stuck in the middle of the road. So we then decided we needed to hike, and did we HIKE!!! It was tough and a real kick in the butt. I decided I better start working out again because Sarah who is 6 months pregnant, wasn't even breathing as hard as I was. Jordan spotted our tree at what seemed like the top of the mountain and then we drug it down. It was fun and now we have a cute little tree in our living room!!

Don't mind my cone head and Jordan's awfully sweaty head. It really was a lot of work!

Decorating our Tree

Well besides Thanksgiving and tree hunting, we pretty much spend our time with school and work. Well Jordan spends his time with school and work and I pretty much just work. Jordan only has 3 more weeks of school until he is completely done! We are very excited about that. He is also working at Ace Hardware still and hopes to find a new job by January. I am pretty much done with school this semester. I still work at my same job but am going to be done in December so that I can Student Teach. I will be teaching at a middle school and am super excited and nervous! After next semester we both will be done with school and who knows where we will be or what we will be doing. It is exciting and we can't wait to see what happens :)

Antelope Anyone???

This past weekend Jordan got to go Antelope hunting. It was his first time and he was very excited. He came home on Saturday with a nice buck. So..... what do you do with an antelope... I guess you cut it up and eat it!!! It was so disgusting! As you can see, Jordan cut up the antelope, Cliff (Jordan's dad) cleaned it up a little bit and then I was the wrapper upper. We had some of the steaks on the Monday when we got back from Paul and they were pretty good, except I couldn't stop thinking about where it came from and how it got in our freezer. We got about 11 pounds of hamburger and a bunch of steaks and roast. We plan on making jerky with some of it as soon as we figure out how to do that. Jordan had a blast hunting with his family, I had a blast hanging out with his mom and Tessa and we ended up with a bunch of meat!! Not a bad weekend. Jordan plans on going hunting again in about two weeks.... I do not plan on cutting up an innocent animal again :) (but I will be happy to let someone else cut it up for me!)

Who said Pocatello isn't a good place to live???

We have lived in Pocatello for 3 years now and we have really enjoyed ourselves here. There are so many people that think that Pocatello is such a bad place and would never want to live here. Some say it is ugly (and it is is some spots) but there are so many beautiful places just minutes away. Today we wanted to go for a walk. So we drove only 10 min and we were in the mountains. There are so many hikes and mountain area around here. It is so fun to just be able to drive a few min and feel like we are not in a city at all. Too bad we don't have four wheelers to go play with but I guess our feet will do for know.

We have been married for 3 years now! Its crazy to think about because it doesn't seem like its been that long. For our anniversary we went to a Chukars baseball game. It was a awesome! Although the Chukars arnt the best team in the world it was still a lot of fun. I think the best part was the food!!!! It was bobblehead night so we both came home with free bobbleheads.... (my head already fell off :( ) We had a lot of fun!

We have also started school and have finished one WHOLE WEEK!!! Jordan just has one semester left and then he will have his degree in Business Management. I have a year left and will get my degree in Special Education. Its exciting to almost be done! Jordan got a job at Ace Hardware. He works so hard and I love that about him! Jordan also won an ipod... YAY :)

Reunion FUN

This last couple of weeks we had a couple reunions. First we went to Lake Cleveland for an Anderson reunion. We all stayed in a cabin near by while the rest of the family camped. We played in the water and had a lot of fun. Jordan, Dillon, and I decided to go on a hike. We ended up climbing down a cliff over the lake. It was very fun but I am glad to still be alive!! We didn't have our camera so we have no pictures :(

The next weekend we went to Raft River for the Darrington reunion. We played on the waterslide, golfed, and hung out. We all stayed at my moms house while everyone else camped in the wind... so sorry! The last day of the reunion we went to the Oregon Trail crossing that goes through Raft River. I always knew that it was there but I have never seen it before. It was very neat. There is also a graveside of some pioneers. It was a great reunion and a lot of fun... THANKS MOM!

They were both very fun reunions and we think that we have the best families in the world!!!
