"A final gospel truth that will contribute to our understanding of and hence the quality of our marriages relates to the degree in which we involve the Savior in our relationships as husbands and wives. As designed by our Heavenly Father, marriage consists of our first entering into a covenant relationship with Christ and then with each other. He and his teachings must be the focal point of our togetherness. As we become more like him and grow closer to him, we will naturally become more loving and grow closer to each other"

Santa came early!! (12/20/08)

I know I know.. it should be a sin to have Christmas early BUT it was done! Robbie and I are going to my parents Wednesday and I work all day tomorrow so instead of packing everything up then packing it all back in the car the next day we just decided to celebrate early! So on the 20th we had some fun! Here are some of the pictures from the event!
This was our "tiny" tree... long story. There were lots of presents for Robbie under the tree and there was one HUGE box.. Ya Robbie DID wrap all my presents in one box.. He thought it was pretty funny!!
The sweater from Bobby!! Loved it
I've been wanting this sign for a very long time and was so happy to see it under the tree! Robbie got tired of wrapping after wrapping the bog box.. so he decided to play Guitar Hero and when I got home from work there it was unwrapped! Santa must have dropped it off early!
Grandma Morrison got us that Reflections of Christ book, its amazing and Robbie got me the other one!

YAY! No more balding hubby... Hopefully ;)

Long sleeve boarding shirts!

The new Burton boarding gear!!! He cannot wait to go snowboarding.. its all he talks about!

Rawson got us the UNO attack game.. I cant wait to play that!!

His mom got us a VIDEO CAMERA! I was so happy and excited!! Its been such a blast to play with!
My new snowboarding jacket (-the pants!) Im really scared to go with Robbie but I'm going to give it a far shot because I know how much he loves it!!

We hope everyone has a great holiday and take lots of pictures so we can see!! I can't wait to go see my family and have our Nelson family party! FUN! I just love Christmas!!

This and that...

It has been a little while since I posted anything so I figured I should update! We have been so busy lately and still so much to do! My house is a wreck and instead of doing this post I should be cleaning.. but im not! We have been having so much fun the past little while! We went to an 80's party with a bunch of friends and it was a blast I cant wait to go to the ugly sweater party!

For thanksgiving up went to Morgan to spend time with Robbie's mom. She had to be in the hospital thanksgiving so we needed to be up north to pick her help and just help out. It was a nice break from st. george but i FROZE. One day my lips were seriously BLUE! I didnt know that could happen! I'm not to sure im ready to move there and freeze to death... Im sad to say that we don't have any picture of our first thanksgiving together :( and this is the first year I didnt have a thanksgiving dinner, but Robbie made Mountain Dew Stew? Not sure if anyone has had it but it was pretty good! But my mom promised me we'd have a thanksgiving dinner for Christmas... can't wait!

Also it was Megan's birthday! I was sad I was up north and couldn't party with her but we celebrated at Player's with some friends for dinner! Happy 22nd Meg!!

Nice to get away!

On saturday we went up to my friends cabin in Kolob just for the day! It was a group date and we thought it'd be fun to go riding and fishing! BUT the fishing didn't last to long!! haha! But we still had so much fun! We ate hobo dinners, played games and watched Get Smart (SO FUNNY) I love just getting away even if its only 45 minutes away! Here are some of the pictures we took! The lake where we attempted to fish!
Drving the Rhino around! Amy and Rawson creepin in the back!

Amy & Rawson. Poor amy was freezing! And Rawson looks like he has pigtails!

Robbie goofin around! Would have been pretty funny if that tree broke and he fell into that FREEZING water!

FOOTBALL! You should have seen how beautiful Camie's cabin was!

Camie & Clint!

My handsome husband! We were so cold!


I just think he is so dang cute!

It's so nice to have friends that you can just have so much fun with! Robbie and I need to get out more with Friends... so we need more married couples to live closer to us!!!

Two new projects!

"Sacrifice is the highest form of love." I made this one for my sister. She has a missionary out and this is just their cute little quote they always say! I'm very proud of her for waiting so faithfully, this guy is worth the wait. I'll love him forever for the person he's helped my sister become!!! The thank you cards is something that Robbie and I started to do. (Well i make the cards, not him) but we decided we needed to make our own family traditions so every Novemeber since its Thanksgiving, we decided to write a letter a week to someone important to us or someone just letting them know how appreciated they are by us. So either on Sundays or family night this is what we will be doing for this month!! Cant wait to see what we decide for Christmas!! I love the holidays so much!

Craft night!

So my friend Kelsie and I went to Roberts to find something we could make! We were just in a crafty mood I guess! SO we spent to much time putting things in and out of the cart before we decided to make this: I think it turned out cute and was so fun to make! Kelsie didn't make hers yet because she was working on a treasure box for her sisters for Christmas!!

Morgan weekend.

Robbie and i went up to Morgan last wednesday for the weekend! Robbie loves going up north and he can't wait to move there (9 more months...) While we were there we helped his mom get ready for the snowy months, so we had to pull out everything she planted for summer and spring and also chop wood for fires! It was a blast, the weather was so amazing so working outside all day was so fun! We also went up to Idaho to pick up the fourwheelers and go for a ride. It really was so fun but I hate riding by myself because I always get dusted out! So Robbie let me ride with him for a bit but that sucked because we went up a trail STRAIGHT up a mountain and i was hanging on for dear life... needless to say it was a great ab workout since I had to use all my strength to keep on the fourwheeler with a heavy backpack weighing me down!! On our way home we stopped at Cabela's and got ourself some fishing pools and gear! I can't wait to use them!! I've never been to the Cabelas so I was amazed at all this stuff!!We tried to get the animals in the back but it didn't work..
While we were gardening look what we found!! The big one is a Zuchini and the small one a cucumber.. i was in SHOCK. That Zuchini is huge!!
I made Robbie hold them to his head so ya'll can see how big it was!

This was the night I made White Chili for all of Robbie's Morgan friends and we watched the Red Sox vs. Tampa Bay game...

Before our ride. It was cold in Idaho and I look huge since I had like 4 layers on!!!

Its sad how ugly this picture made everything look. It really was so pretty up there.

And of coarse after the muddy ride we (Robbie) had to wash the wheelers when we got back to Morgan.
It was a good weekend and Robbies mom loved having us there. We're going back for Thanksgiving and I still can't believe Robbie is moving me up there to freeze my rear end off!! The things we do for our Husbands!
