November was a great month! So many fun things went on. Noah is still adorable (as you can see) , Jordan and I celebrated our first Thanksgiving together by spending it with both of our families. I had a lot of fun. Then on the 29th , Arwen went through the LA temple to take out her endowments!!! I'm so proud of her and she was just beaming all night. It was great being there with almost all of my family. She has come such a long way and made such great changes in her life. November really was a great month!

Just so HAPPY

This was a really good weekend for us. Friday night was date night and although things didn't go according to plan , it was nice to spend time together and be in goofy moods. Saturday was such a special day. We went to Dane and Jessica's sealing and then their wedding reception. I was so excited to go to the Newport temple, I've never been there and theirs was the first sealing I've been to. ( Other than our own) It was such a beautiful day. I love the temple, I really do. I can't express the joy I felt being in their sealing and reflecting on my own wedding day. I'm so happy for them, the spirit was so strong in that beautiful room. It's a wonderful thing to belong to the ones you love for eternity. I told Jordan later that I think I would like to go to a sealing everyday because I can't help but think of our wedding day - the best day of my life. There is just such a sweet, comforting feeling in the temple, and as impossible as it seems, it makes me even more in love with my wonderful husband thinking these things while in the Lord's House. Back to Dane and Jessica. She looked beautiful and they both were very happy. I'm really bummed because we left our camera at home, so sorry no pictures. They had an amazing reception and its just great to be with family . Seriously, I love my family. All of you guys. It's hard to express how much without getting so emotional. I know I am so blessed to have the family I have. I wish we could see more of our extended family- everyone should just buy a neighborhood together and that would solve it. Even though I'm not a big talker ( Jordan's family knows this) I love to watch how everyone interacts with each other. There was a special feeling outside the temple that day too as we waited for Dane and Jessica to come out. So many cute babies! Everyone was having a good time, and I love to just sit and take it all in. I really don't know the purpose pf this blog, other than to let everyone know that although this was a rough week for a lot of us, I am so happy and I love life. Yesterday was Jordan and Mine three - month anniversary. I cannot believe how quickly the time has passed. When Jordan ask my dad for his blessing to marry me, he told me later that my dad had said to him that you think you can't possibly love each other more than you do now, but as time goes on, you look back and realize that that was the least you loved each other. It just keeps growing, even if you think it can't. Something like that. Anyway.. its true.

Noah's Baby Blessing!!

Sunday was Noah's baby blessing. He looked so cute. It was nice being in sacrament meeting with so much family. We even got a family picture in. I know I blog a lot about my nephews, but I love them so much!

On Friday we had David and Julie over for some Carne Asada Tacos. It was the first time we have a full table in our apartment, so of course I have to blog about it... its a big deal. =) Oh yeah, I had to take more pictures of Noah too. I love this baby boy! Have I mentioned how much we LOVE having nephews? If only they both lived close by.

FHE and our first full table!

We love Halloween! Its my favorite holiday, sometimes second to Christmas! One year I had a total of 15 pumpkins- I think that says how much I enjoy it. So for FHE tonight we carved pumpkins for our first Halloween together. Now I just have to convince Jordan to go trick or treating.... No, you are never to old for freebies, especially of the candy sort.

I didn't put our apartment pictures up right, but I have no idea how to fix it. But if you want to see them I guess they show up when you click on them...technology these days..

Funny Faces, Cute Nephews , and a Finished Apartment

Jordan decided to shave his beard after having one for four months, but messed around with this for a few days before completely getting rid of it. Yeah!! Its already growing back, but I like it!
Noah is getting so big- he looks like a little man
Its really fun to see my parents with a baby. Since I was the youngest this is all new to me. Aww, grandparents!

Jackson was so cute brushing his teeth. It is so much fun having such cute nephews!

We got this cool sticker from www.whatisblik.com Jordan put it up and we love it!

So we finally were able to get our apartment to how we wanted and I love it. Its so fun that this is our first home!!

My Husband is amazing

Sometimes I realize just how lucky I am . Today I came home to my wonderful husband making me a birthday cake and dinner. Last night I mentioned how this year would be the first year I would miss out on a family tradition of putting balloons in the birthday persons room. Sure enough when I got home today , our bedroom was full of 21 balloons. It is amazing being married to the most wonderful man in the world. I appreciate all you do, Jordan!! I love you.

Down to the last couple of weeks

These last few months have been some of the best. I honestly can't believe that in just eleven days I will be married to the man of my dreams!! It has been so great being engaged, getting to know Jordan's family better, and growing closer together. Im so excited to be called a Holmes. and especially be his wife and his true love for all of eternity.
