...and some more

--Christmas day & Night-Out sledding down our hill on the farm, duck hunting, and scratching scratch tickets. :) we won $9. haha

...some of our trip in WA

You'll never guess that we got all these ducks in just one jump. Thats right, 12 shots, 20 ducks. Pretty freaking amazing. We had a blast. The best part was hurrying to pick them up and ringing their necks and throwing them into a big pile out in the corn field. It felt like finding easter eggs. haha. Maybe John will be convinced to move to WA after all, now that he is realizing we got more game here than ID. :)

Got to love Christmas time, the cold, and all the snow flying!

I love Christmas!

The other night, John and I went over to my old roomate and her husbands house and made ginger bread houses. It was so much fun, John was really into it until we got to the roof part and we were having stress, than he kind of gave up-but still help out.
We are heading to WA for Christmas. We leave this Sunday. I am so excited to be home for Christmas. Man, you never really know how much you miss home and your home life till you move away for good. College you get a little climps but not quiet the whole thing. So i pretty much can't wait. :) Hope to see you all real soon!

Our first tree together!

We had a good thanksgiving break. John and I cut down our first Christmas tree together....and then brought it home and decorated it-my favorite part. especailly since John let me buy some tree decorations. YAY!
We didn't bring the truck up to Driggs, and I didn't want to wait to bring it home, cause i was so excited-so we went with option B. hahaha!

Yup we have barb-wire around our tree :)

So we went to Porters (the craft store) cause john found some christmas bulbs there that he liked one day when I dragged him along with me, and I found this way cute rustic star tree topper. I begged him to buy it for me (cause we are kind of on a budget) He said i could have it if it was under $10, well i figured it had to be more than that, so i said $15, he disagreed, so we agreed on $12....well actually I agreed on $12.99. :) We'll the cashier lady rang it up and it was only $9.99! I was so excited.

And a few weekends ago, i also dragged him along to this Craft Fair down in Idaho Falls, and found this way cute Bride & Groom decoration, so i had to get it of course since this is our first Christmas together. You all are probably thinking that John is such a sweetheart for going all these girly places with me, we'll he is i'll give him credit. But after talking to some of his friends he relizes that he is the only guy that does this willing, so he therefore began to tell me that next year he is just going to give me some money and let me go on my own. Which, OK, its kind of a bum deal, but, give me money? Alright! haha
