December 2012

This month was filled with lots and lots of work. My work at Vivint has paid off and after 6 months I am now getting a change in position and a raise! I'll still be in the same department, but I will now be in charge of about 100 techs in the Eastern region of the country and making sure that they are licensed everywhere that they work. It's a lot more responsibility, but I'm ready for the change!

I've officially turned into my mom - by inheriting her Bernina sewing machine and turning our extra bedroom into a sewing/craft room.

We had the brothers over a couple of times and played with our Nerf guns, one of our wedding presents, and Steve may have been shot in the eye by his fiance.

We decorated our apartment for Christmas with our hand-me-down Christmas tree, nativity scene, and stockings. I'm pretty proud of Nick's stocking that I made with scraps from a bag of clothes to give away.

We had fun wrapping presents at Vivint's Sub for Santa event. They bought presents for over 1700 children in the state. We volunteered to wrap presents one night and we walked in to see the entire gym filled with tables of presents and ribbons and wrapping paper. It was awesome! My favorite was attaching a few presents to a bike for a fourth grade boy. We love spreading Christmas cheer!

An Enchanted Summer

Here's just a little look back at the very eventful summer of 2012!

It all started with Nick proposing to me...

...and graduation just two days later...

"A ring by spring..."
I walked across the stage wearing my favorite shoes :)

Can you find me sitting on the floor?
...followed by a fun 21st birthday celebration for me at the ball park...

I love this boy!
Our summer was finished off with a trip to the Provo temple...

...a much-anticipated trip to the Mount Timpanogos temple...

...and we finished it off by celebrating Nick's birthday in Albuquerque for our open house...

This past summer will be one that I will never forget!
