My last final is FINALLY here...

Oh my gosh... I just took my last final EVER!!! I am so excited to finally be done with college, even though graduating in Dec. is completely lame. There is no celebration, no cap and gown, no family coming to see you walk to get your diploma. I know.. I know.. that will all come in May when I get to walk, but still its kinda disappointing. At the same time I couldn't be happier. No more homework and stressing and late nights studying. Now it's time to face the real world. We will keep you posted if Cade and I make any big plans cuz at this point you never know :)

Our First Thanksgiving....

Thanksgiving weekend was probably the funnest time I've had in Panaca in a long time. My mom had so many activities planned for our family. All of us girls were saying it was miricle because we watched very little TV :) My highlight of the trip (besides eating) was riding four wheelers to Condor Canyon and the waterfall and then of course watching Cade play basketball in his first Traditional Mathews Thanksgiving Basketball game with all my brothers and in-laws. Cade's highlight was herding cows with my Dad... ha ha it makes me laugh!

So not only was it our first Thanksgiving but we also experienced many other "firsts" which I kinda already talked about but let me recap.....

Our first Thanksgiving meal :)

Our first four wheeling experience together. I didn't even know my parents owned four wheelers until just recently - sad.

Our first trip up Condor Canyon to "the Cave".

Our first trip to the waterfall.

Our first cookout on the Mathews Farm :)

Our first trip to the sand dunes :)

......And out first Christmas Tree..Yay!
After this post I'm starting to wonder what we did when we were dating :)

So I don't really have much to blog about...But I figured even if I didn't take any cool pics I could still tell about my B-day. Too bad Cade is not a blogger or else he could write this so I don't have to write about myself :) But yesterday was my birthday and I turned the big 23 -yikes! My parents came over the night before and took us out to dinner and bought me a cool present. They are so thoughtful and I'm glad they could come and celebrate with us. On my birthday Cade was such a sweet husband. He is very thoughtful I decided (ok.. I always knew). Anyways he bought me presents that I wanted and apparently always talk about...I guess he's a pretty good listener :) I told him this story about when I was growing up we had this Christmas decoration that we would put on our wall and put candycanes and snowmen etc on it to count down the 25 days till Christmas. Him, being the sweet man that he is, went and found me one.. I was very impressed :) His parents also sent me some stuff in the mail. I feel so blessed to have such wonderful people in my life!

I cannot believe that I have a nephew old enough to drive and date! It was Homecoming at Lincoln this past week so Cade and I decided to go support my nephew at his varsity football game on Friday night. I wouldn't really call it a game though. The final score was like 72 to O - of coarse Lincoln County High School killed them :) It was fun to watch T start as a running back and L my other nephew who was on JV. I had lots of memories come back...I think Cade got sick of me reminiscing the whole time. I can't believe that I have been out of high school for almost 5 years now. Its been a little longer for Cade but who's counting. Cade's getting used to small towns now I think. He asked me why don't you guys have a track here and I said your looking at it. He couldn't believe that it was dirt...Ghetto

Last Days of Summer

Cade and I have been trying to do lots of things outdoors before we have to deal with the cold weather here in Cedar. We went hiking with some friends on the backside of Zion's (that is basically in our backyard) which I never knew about.

Cade has been wanting to ride horses for the longest time. This last time we were in Panaca my sister Heather took us riding and Cade defintately surprised me with his horse riding skills ;)

He was feeling so confident that he took off in the sage brush alone for a while.

We also went fishing this past week up by Mammoth Creek. We have some friends that have a cabin up there and it is always fun to go enjoy the outdoors and get out of Cedar for a bit.

We went camping for the first time since we have been married at Cade's family reunion up Nephi canyon but I failed to take some pictures, so I guess that pretty much covers our summer fun. I went from not blogging at all, to trying to fill 2 months into one entry. However, I am started to get the hang of this a little bit better with the help of Lizzy :)

Well we got our pictures back from our photographer Gianne Snow and though I'd just post a few so you can see what a good job she did. I am excited to blow some up and put them on our walls.

Its About Time

So I figured I might as well join everyone and start our own blog. I know my sisters and sisters in law will especially be grateful. I started thinking what do two newly weds have to blog about..but there just might be more to talk about than we thought. It might take me awhile to get this going but hopefully I can post some wedding pictures and keep everyone updated on our exciting lives :) We are suppose to be getting our pictures from our wedding photographer this week. So hopefully I'll have them up soon.
