Just Call Him Lumber Jack Larry.

Larry is crazy. Oh and my brothers are crazy. Before everyone leaves to go back to school my dad wanted to cut down the front trees in our house. These trees are as old as I am and are starting to get a little dangerous when the weather is bad. So Larry being a boy, and the best son-in-law said he thought they could chop them all down. It was a crazy morning of chopping down trees and pulling them with cars. It was nuts and dangerous and I thought Larry would die because he was up in the trees with a stinking chain saw. They successfully cut down 4 huge trees and cleaned it all up and we headed over to Debbie Wong this Chinese place my family loves. It was a messy day. Its been pretty fun being back in California these last 2 weeks and I am not looking forward to going back to cold snowy Utah. It looks like John is going to come stay for a week or so though so that will be fun and prolong my sadness a little bit.

Family Pictures

I think these are the first pictures we have had of all of us in a long time. Tom was not in the country when Larry and I got married and went straight back to Hawaii after him mission and then we moved to Utah so really this is the newest in a long time! Emma Foell was baptized over the Christmas break and here is the proof! Did you know I love being with my family {most of the time} no really its pretty good some fights but not as many as we get older. Its fun watching the families grow as people get married and eventually babies will come along the way making it even larger and funner.

Recently things seem to change fast what with applying to nursing school, tutoring, marriage, jobs and everything its hard to keep up. It has been nice to take these 2 weeks off of work and school and just relax. After studying all semester and working its nice to just get a small break and have some sunny weather!

Christmas Season 2008

Merry Christmas!!
We have had a really great time here in El Dorado Hills. I know its not technically Christmas yet but today we had the Foells up to make candy houses with the Martin Family. It was really fun making candy houses and hanging out with everyone. It was a bit wild at times with lots of little kids and cousins but we ate a lot of candy and are enjoying this time together. Its so nice to be away from the snow and be back home! Hope everyone has a great holiday!

We Took A Road Trip...

And went to STANFORD! Larry and I took a day and drove down to Stanford University. It is such a long shot that Larry would go to law school here and its still 1 year away but its fun to dream and think about. It was such a fun sunny day and we got lunch, walked around the nearly deserted campus and just enjoyed being together. After a long semester of cramming and me working 2 jobs we had not really spent much time together. Its fun to imagine us being here someday close to family and maybe with babies of our own? We still have lots of work to do but just starting to plan makes it feel like its coming sooner then later. Isn't it fun to be in love and married? Its been 1 year and 3 months and it sometimes feels like forever but other times its still exciting and new like when we were dating, I love those days the best.
