Christmas Tree

We went up to Springerville this past week so that we could get a Christmas tree. Up on the mountain where we went it was snowy white and I'm sure that if Hunter hadn't been with us, Keith surely would have managed to get us stuck. But, he was very careful not to drive anywhere where other vehicles have not gone. The snow was gorgeous! Sometimes I miss it. I miss being able to take a drive up the mountain any time I want. There are so many places to go! There's always something to do and it doesn't cost any money. But then I just look at the crazy people that live up there and I thank my Heavenly Father that we are not in that mess. There is so much drama and I think that wind in Springerville drives people mad. :)

Anyway, we did get out Christmas tree and we had a wonderful time looking for it and cutting it down. Although it is not perfect, like a fake one or farm grown tree would be, it is beautiful. People aren't perfect so why do we always expect a Christmas tree to be? I love our tree!

My Birthday

Today is my 26th birthday. My first birthday with Hunter Buggy and it was great! My dear husband got me a Capo for my guitar and a tuner to help me tune the guitar. I also got the book "Twilight." We went out to eat at Serrano's and Hunter ate crackers and beans. He was really excited. Anway, I had a really great day! But now I'm tired and need to get to bed.

Things we all love....

We've been on a little vacation for a few days visiting all of the family. It's been so wonderful. We went to Morenci for a few days to see Grandma and Grandpa Rogers. Now we are up in Springerville. We were hoping it would snow and it did a little bit but not enough. :) We got a Christmas tree and it's going to be beautiful when we get home and get it decorated.

We've been staying at Mimi and Papa's house. I love it here. I'm so incedibly thankful that Hunter gets to spend time with Mimi and Papa just like I did when I was little. Mimi and Papa have this little tiny chair that all of us grandkids used to play with when we were little. It is probably more than 30 years old. Hunter was playing with it and I took some pictures. I'm so thankful that Hunter gets to experience the same things I did. We all loved that little chair!

Thanksgiving Day

I really love the holidays! I just cooked my very first Thanksgiving dinner for my family! There was so much food, I still feel like i'm going to explode. It was Hunter's first Thanksgiving dinner and he got to eat mashed potatoes, stuffing, and noodles. It was the cutest thing i've ever seen. Everytime Keith would give him a bite, he would swallow and then scream for more. I can't believe he is big enough to eat Thanksgiving dinner. My, how the time flies!
My mom and dad came over for dinner and my mom helped me cook and clean up, which was very much appreciated! Making dinner for Thanksgiving is hard work that I realize now, I took for granted. I really wish that I would have spent more time helping my mom and Mimi cook Thanksgiving, when I was younger. I never realized how hard they worked all those years. Anyway, I'm just thankful that I was fortunate enough to spend this day with my family and be able to put such a wonderful dinner on the table.

A little bit late

I started this blog almost a month ago and then realized that I have only posted to it one time. Man! Things are crazy around here. Keith and I hardly have time to breathe. We work until 4 and most of the time it's later than that. Then by the time we get home and make dinner, it's time for Hunter to go to bed. I'm just glad we have long breaks during the school year.
Keith has been coaching football for the 7th and 8th graders at Copper Basin. He is really having a good time. They had their first game yesterday and won. He was really proud of his team. Keith also has class on Tuesday nights, so he is not home until late. He's a very busy guy these days!
Hunter is just growing up so fast it's flashing right before my eyes! He is crawling all over the place and getting into trouble already! He always races to all the things he's not supposed to play with and then looks at me and laughs! Do all babies do this??? I can't help but laugh, but dang, I hope that is just a stage! LOL! He is definitely a little turkey. Just check out the picture and you can tell.
Well, it's getting late and I have dishes to do! Story of my life, but I love it! :)

First Blog

Well, I decided that I would be a copy cat and create a family blog like Kristi did. I thought that it was a great way to let family know what is going on in our lives. Now that we are in the hustle and bustle of the city (kind of), it's hard for us to stay in touch. This makes it a little better.
Anyway, for those who haven't talked to us in awhile, we have finally moved from Bagdad. Keith and I both got a job in the Florence School District. I am teaching 6th grade Science and Keith is working in the ED classroom (with the crazy kids.) :) He is going to school full time, working towards his degree. Hunter is doing good. He is 8 months old now and has 2 teeth coming in on the bottom! I can't believe he already has teeth. He has a really great babysitter, that lives just down the street from our school. He loves it at the babysitter because he has all kinds of kids to play with! He rolls all over the house, but I'm pretty sure he will be crawling here in about a month. He's growing up so fast!
Some more good news is that Keith and I just bought our first house! Now, I know your wondering how we were able to do that in this poor economy! Well, I'll tell you, what other people lose, is a gain for someone else. I know that's sad, but I'm thankful for it, otherwise we would never have been able to own our own house. We bought a foreclosed home that is in really good condition. We love it, and we are very happy to live here. We also love the fact that only 2 other families live on our street, so it's pretty quiet right now!! I know that will change soon.
Well,that's it for now. I'm sure I will have more soon, along with some pictures!
