Date with Lily



Yesterday Jarom and I spent the day with Lily. It was so fun! Definitely the high light of our week! We went to feed the ducks, ate gummy worms and bubble gum, did some crafties, ate mac and cheese and corn and apple sauce for dinner and went to Williams choir concert. She is just so fun to be around and the little things she says are just so darn funny! We love her and love to spend time with her! We didn't get any pictures of Williams concert but he did SO GOOD! He had 3 solos! I was so impressed! I cried a little bit. Anyway, here are some pictures of our day.

Our Home Sweet Home

Sorry it's taken me a while to get these up. We LOVE our new apartment! We love the location, our ward, living in an apartment, living close to and hangin out with family, living next to Jenni and Michael, everything! We're having so much fun! It was really fun getting to finally unpack all of our wedding stuff and use it all! It feels like we just got married again! We're looking for jobs still. I'm waiting for my Utah license to get processed and hopefully I'll be able to find something to do with that and in the meantime trying to find something to hold us over. Jarom just had an interview at Wilson Audio (Where Ben works) today. He said its a lot like where he worked before except they work with Audio, not medical stuff. He said the interview went really well and he realllllly wants it so hopefully that will work out. *Cross your fingers* Ben has been so good to us in helping Jarom with this job! We are so grateful for that! Everyone has been SO good to us! Feeding us, helping us unpack, hanging out with us, helping us find jobs, and more! We are so blessed! We are excited to get things started and start our life here! Anyway, here are some before and after pictures of our apartment, as promised. I didn't get any of the Bathroom and the Bedroom is still a work in progress so no pictures of that either. sorry. I'll post pictures of our Bed before and afters some other time. That was a HUGE project Jarom got done RIGHT before we left. Thanks to Jon's help!! Sorry the pictures aren't great, but you get the idea.
Before:


This was when we were like half way done unpacking. it was WAY worse than this. DISASTROUS!!!
After:

Some of the Picture frames aren't all the way full, like this "Laugh" one. We're still waiting for some pictures to put in them.

Nothin special but we like it. It feels like home!

P.S. I made Cinnamon Rolls yesterday...YUMMMM!!!! They were SO delicious! Jarom's friends came over last night for dinner and games and they loved 'em! Try not to drool over this picture. This was before they were cooked. I put cream cheese frosting on them, Just like my mom makes them! DELISH!

Happy Halloween

We had the BEST Halloween!! Full of fun, fun, fun! All the men (Jarom, John, Nate, Ben, and James) went shooting in the morning while all the ladies stayed at home with the kids and got the spooky food ready for our carnival. We went to the Red barn. Our intentions were to go on a hay ride but apparently they stopped those the day BEFORE Halloween! Weird! We got ice cream, anyway. Then we went home and got dressed for the big spooky night. Jarom was a Pirate, I was Princess Leia, Court was Cinderella, John was Captain Hook, Nate was a Pirate, Amy was a Renaissance princess (I think) or something, William was a paleontologist, Lily was "Fancy Nancy" , Oliver was a Dinosaur, Ben was a "Kiss" guy, Kristen was Snow White, Kaci was Snow white too and Dylan was a zombie. Everyone looked great! We had a spooky carnival with games and food and dancing. The night was a success!! Here's some pictures, of course!
