I've got you babe.

Since not a lot has been happening I thought I would do a tag about my husband Josh.

Thanks for the great idea Skip.

1. Where did you first meet your husband?
Oh dear. I think we first met at church when we were both in high school. I remember thinking he was a pretty cute guy with a sexy smile:) I think we met officially at a ym yw activity when his friends I already knew introduced us.

2. How long did you date before you were married
We dated about a year on and off and then the last 6 months we dated seriously before we were married.

3. How long have you been married?
Josh and I have been married for 3 1/2 years! Every year has gotten better and better.

4. What does he do that suprises you?
I guess this shouldn't suprise me, but he is the most awesome dad! He does everything so well and I think Eliza Jae likes him better than me. He comes in the door from work and heads straight for her, and I have to remind him to give me a kiss too-although I don't mind. I guess what suprises me is how naturally it came.

5. What is his best feature?
His smile, I really love it.

6. What is his best quality?
I think his best quality is that he is a missionary at heart. He loved loved his mission and sometimes he thinks he is on one still, which is a good thing. He will invite everyone to church and he surely doesn't have a comfort zone he won't leave.
He makes me try harder.

7. Does he have a nickname for you?

8. What is his favorite food?
Well, Josh is a major meat and potatoes kinda guy. He really loves anything you put in front of him. By anything I mean Josh eats everything you can think of, ie: Kidney, liver, tripe, heart, bone marrow, ugh. No pickiness here.

9.What is his favorite sport?
College football, if by favorite you mean that it consumes his life for 3 months.

10.When and where was your first kiss.
Our first kiss was when we were dating. It didn't happen for a while and I was starting to think I was gonna have to make a move. Josh later told me he was really nervous for some reason and he thought I thought he was a dork. Anyway we were at my house after a date and he was trying to say goodbye. I hope he won't get embarrassed by this story. He kept leaning in to me but then he would be like, "well i gotta go," and he would stand up straight, then he would lean down again... Well this happened like five times until he finally came in for the kill. Never forget it.

11. What is your favorite thing to do as a couple.
We really love to go hunting and camping together. It is so much fun when it is just you two out in the wilderness fending for yourselves. We also love to ride around his ranch in the fall and summer, mmmmmm so peaceful.

12. Do you have any children?
Yes, we have one beautiful girl.

13. Does he have any hidden talents?
Yes he has many. Most people know Josh is a welder by profession, but what most people don't know is that he is a really good welder. Josh welds pipelines, and learning to weld and doing it well is really hard. There are many older welders who have been welding for years who Josh outwelds. He is constantly offered jobs all over the country to come and get their pipeline going, but he stays here with us. Good job honey!

14. How old is he?

15. Who said I love you first?
Josh did. He would always say, "I am really happy to be with you," for the longest time...

16. What is his favorite music?
Anything by the Beach Boys.

17. What do you admire most about him.
His ability to rise above. He is surrounded by crazy oil field guys all day and yet he never swears, he reads his scriptures everyday around them, and they know who he is and what he stands for.

18. What is his favorite color?
Hmmm, brown and gold?

19. Will he read this?
I will tell him to.

I love you!

I peeked!

Well I hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving. This is the most wonderful time of the year. For some reason I just feel extra excited this year.

Confession: I already opened my two Christmas presents. And... I love them! I got a new camera and I can't stop taking pictures.

I also got a huge desk to do scrapbooking and stuff, it is so nice to have room to put all your crap.

We only have two presents under our tree, my present to Josh and one for Eliza, then 200 million others in the corner for everyone else.

Here are some pictures from Thanksgiving. This first one is my favorite of Josh and Eliza.

My mom and dad went to utah for Thanksgiving so we were just at Josh's house and didn't do the 2-3 thanksgivings we usually do.

Just had to throw that one in there.

Here is our glorious real tree that doesn't even smell like pine. I love the top branches that are sticking straight out longer than the other ones. The tree looks like it is stretching.

And finally here a couple little Christmas crafts I made.

I hope everyone is feeling the Christmas warmth!
