Next week I am going to a cookie exchange in Tri-cities with Nicks mom and my soon to be sister in law. I think I'm going to make white chocolate macadamia cranberry cookies. we are also going to do a white elephant exchange.
Nick graduates from school December 18th. I didn't realize this until just recently so I am scheduled to work but I am going to do my very very best to get it off!
Unfortunately I probably wont be able to make it to my family Christmas because I work retail and they are going to Vancouver. Christmas in town will still be fun though.
in the next couple of months Nick and I will know if we are going to stay in Yakima a little longer then planned, when and where we are moving, what kind of an exiting job Nick gets... so on and so forth.
Happy December everyone!

Yesterday I was talking to Roger (Brother in law) on the phone about vitamin D supplements and out of the blue Nick started "herding" me to walk a different direction. I told Roger I needed to go see what Nick needed. Its not every day he tries to herd me.
Nick told me he just wanted to go for a walk with me. So we walked down the gravel road talking randomly as we often do on our walks. I stopped to play with the goats down the road. on our way back he spun me around and told me he had something he wanted to give me. I was pretty sure I knew what it was. He kissed me and told me that was all ( hes so cute when hes nervous), I thanked hm. then he pulled the box out and told me he had been carrying it around all day. Nick got on his knee in the middle of the gravel road and asked me if I would spend the rest of my life with him. I hugged him and cried. Nick asked me again, just to make sure It was a yes I'm sure.
Nick then told me a few of the plans he had to ask me. one of them was that he was going to send me on a state long scavenger hunt including places we have been together. the other was to ask in the middle of the engagement picture shoot. although either of these would have been fun, I like that it was more personal, doing something we like to do.

The rolls of pennies are for your out of town guests to use at the penny slots. just use regular penny rolls with red an white twine (bakers twine) to tie your personalized note on!
I thought that Kat would love this tea cup center piece found on an Eco friendly wedding website!

It's 144 pounds ( I would need someone else to carry it, its bigger then I am), 84 inches around, beautiful Orange color, minimal scaring, flat bottom, nice stem, and good round shape. that information was for "pumpkin snobs" like Nick.
No Its not really that big and I don't think Fred Meyer tucks it in at night.
I really like the Idea of ridiculously large pumpkins!

I've never been good at writing, Most of the time I don't have much of an opinion and I don't use a lot of words.
The only thing I can say is that you had a great impact in my life. You were the kind of person that made the lives of others better just by knowing them. The world seemed a better place with you in it. Never forgotten, forever missed. Loved by... I wont venture to say all... but definitely most. You did so much for your country, your comunity, and your family. You are and always have been one of my heros. I hope I can be as great a person you were. Life is long but we will meet again...one day.

Yes its true I'm in Yakima again. I don't have all of my things with me but I should by the end of the month. My moving weekend was a hectic one as Heidi ( my youngest sister) was having her baby while I was driving to Yakima. There have been some stressful moments but for the most part everything went as planned.
I have some opportunities in Yakima that I didn't have in Vancouver. I don't want to stay in Yakima any longer then I have to but I love being close to the people I know and love. Thank you for asking Kitty! All is well! Sometimes I feel like the chicken though.

"Abandoned at birth, Mr. Poops could not understand why no one would want him. Alone, in the hot sun, he was left to dry out with no hope of survival. with each passing dog he hoped that he would not e so dried out that no one would recognize him as they sniffed looking to find their own family.
Good fortune fell upon Mr. Poops when a rain storm washed him into a storm drain where he was able to float his way to a store near you. Please adopt Mr. Poops and give him the family he deserves. Reunite him with a dog that wants to put him in their mouth and squeak him with unconditional love only a dog could provide."
Yes, Mr. Poops is a dog toy. Yes I love Mr poops for entertainments sake. Nick also got me the 2ND season to flight of the Concorde's. That will be saved for another Blog though.

They are called Scottish Fold Kittens.
Nick and I thought that they are soooo cute. We cant wait to have our first cat together. They are an expensive breed but we aren't looking for show quality. We are hoping to get lucky and find one in a cat rescue.
