The Next SEVEN months!

We are trying to speed up to present time...so I'm just taking matters into my own hands and trying to recap the last seven months. After getting married, Halloween was shortly after. Grant and I decided to dress up as Peter Pan and Tinkerbell. Because we wanted to make our costumes, I wasn't quite sure they would really turn out... but after many trips to Savers and D.I. (and my mom's sewing machine), I think we pulled it off! We had so much fun. Here are some fun pictures-



We spent Thanksgiving in Utah with my family and sadly I have no pictures :(. For Christmas we decided to cut down our tree. We picked a cute little tree. Definitely a little sparse but it made for some added visual interest. We kept it healthy with an old family recipe and we were sad when we finally took it down.

The Barnes home (in Cameron Park) is up for sale so for Christmas we lit the last Bon Fire there on Christmas Eve. That is the way we light the way for Santa. The fire was so so SOO big and SOOo hot!

As the new year started we really began to get super busy and saw less and less of each other. Grant went on lots and lots of rugby trips and SO I got to spend a lot of time with my girlfriends.
But even though rugby,work and school took up a lot of our time we really made the most of the time we had and ALWAYS went out on the weekends. For Valentines Day we spoiled one another and had a wonderful night eating some yummy Indian food.
Before March had come and gone there was one last event that we were counting down to... The Festival of Colors. Besides having our throats filled with chalky paint with a result of raspy voices.. it was so much fun!! Here are our Before and After pics and then some-






At the beginning of April I quit my job and started preparing for a few trips for Rugby tournaments and our recent move to D.C. And we will blog about all those soon!

I didn't notice the little elf ear before. I am so dense. I thought you guys did a great job with those costumes before, that that just makes it perfect. You'll have to explain the color thing to me? Where is that? Do they do it every year? Looks like fun.

Are you guys staying dry? Any pool days yet?
