O Christmas Tree

Ok, so we finally did it...walking around wal mart the other night, we found this tree....a 6ft 5in pre lit tree...for $22.00 cant really get a better deal than that for your first tree...So we got it, along with some ornaments and things, my mom luckily all my life has gotten me an ornament each year and has kept them so we have a good amount of ornaments with us now. It was way fun decorating it and what not.
Finals are coming this week and then we head to Utah, and then to Texas, so all excitement should be starting soon!
Much love to you all...and hope your holidays are great!

Just another cold day, with a few pictures

With the snow coming and going from Buena Vista, today was pretty cold. The BV parade was going on tonight, yet Greg and I decided it was way too cold to sit outside and watch that for so long! So we decided to go to the JV mens basketball game against VMI...they won at the buzzer which was exciting! My favorite part was the end, when Trae, just like after every game decided he wanted to go "shot" I was happy I had my camera with me and got a few really cute shots so I decided to put them up so Tia could have them for her own.
Thats all for tonight...more to come...Happy holidays


Considering I grew up in Texas, and Greg grew up in Utah we have totally different views about snow. He loves it and whenever it comes he wants to just be outside playing in it...I on the other hand am pretty much afraid of it, considering in Texas the only snow we really know is the hail ice balls that fall from the sky during a terrible storm. Well yesterday morning we woke up to find snow EVERYWHERE! I have never in my 3 years at SVU seen it snow that much. At first I wasnt a fan, but by the end of the day it wasnt as bad as I thought. I guess thinking that next week we will be heading to Utah where they are famous for having a white christmas, made me have to adjust to the idea. Greg walked around campus while I was in class and took some pictures of the front of the school while it was snowing, I thought they were pretty neat so we decided to share them!
Finals are approaching and I couldn't be happier. School is stressful, and we cannot wait to have a break! We have been working on getting all of the christmas feeling in our house, so that alone should be interesting , and I will post pictures of that soon. I hope all is well, and everyone is enjoying this joyous season!

Thanksgiving Day

It is so nice to finally have a break from school, and sports, and work. Things have been so hectic, but it is nice to have one day out of the year to truly think about what you are thankful for. I have taken alot of pictures lately of the beautiful scenery we have gotten to enjoy this year in Virginia, I hadnt gotten a chance to post them until now, but here are some of them. Also here are some pictures of my nephew Sean, it was fun having him for a visit on Thanksgiving. Greg and I are so thankful for everything we have been blessed with in our lives, we wish you all the best on Thanksgiving

Time is flying by

It crazy to think November is almost gone, and before we know it, it will be 2008. Basketball has been crazy lately, we played in a tournament and had a few games this last week..including the Division 1 loss we are 2-2. But we have a rematch tonight against one of our loses, Lynchburg College.

As for Greg, he has been working so hard.. Its his last semester of actual classes, considering next semester he only has to take like 2 credit hours. So it wont be too stressful for him during baseball. Luckily Thanksgiving Break is coming up starting tomorrow, and we will get some time to relax, and hopefully make it through the semester!

Hope everything is well for you all! Much love from us!

Lots of new things

Well this past couple days we had our first "real" basketball game, an exhibition game against Charleston Southern University. We lost pretty bad, but we had alot of fun on the beach and took alot of pictures. We got to see Fort Sumter and that was kind of interesting. We got back around 6:30 and I had to hurry to get to our nephew Trae's birthday party.
When we got there he was way excited to open presents, and had to wait for my brother to get there. He was so cute, and excited about getting every gift that he got! Oh how fun it is to be a kid where every present is something new and special! Anyway here are a few pictures from my weekend...poor Greg was home alone, working and doing school stuff all day long, he is way excited because we just got news that his little sister is coming to visit in a few weeks! so YAY for that! He was even so nice and had the whole house clean for me when I got home tonight so I had nothing to worry about!!
Sorry for the lack of updates lately, but more will come as our adventures in VA continue!

Life continues going fast in VA

Well not much has happened, really the same ol same ol college student life. We had a powderpuff football game a few days ago for Homecoming week,, It was freshman and sophomore girls against junior and senior girls! Needless to say we kicked the underclassmans tails! 21-0 to be exact! We looked pretty intimidating too!
Another fun thing was the homecoming pep rally. The womens basketball team recently finished our fundraiser which is who do you want to see get pied? We raised money for certain professors to see who is going to get pied in the face. Well we had our winners and president Smith was the one to throw the pies,. Let me tell you he THREW them HARD!! Here are a few pictures of all of our happenings.
Sorry the posts havent come sooner, life has been crazy!

Christmas in October

Ok so Greg got really lucky today. I tend to have a problem with suprises, in which I get him presents and I cant keep them from him, well I thought this time would be different! I wanted to get his christmas present early so I could get a really good deal. So I got him a play station 2 with the guitar hero game and an extra guitar! I was so excited! Well it arrived in the mail today, and lo and behold...guess what he has been doing since after practice? I cracked...but atleast he loves it I guess right? So this is what I have had the oppourtunity of looking at for the past few hours..oh how sweet! I love it! Anyway, thats really the only new update with us! Hope all is well with everyone!

Life in Virginia

Well life here in Virginia has been interesting lately!! Very stressful! Greg and I are both in our last year of school, so it is pretty much consuming our lives! We have also both been very busy with sports and work so we shall see! We've spent the past few days watching the baseball playoffs and both of us were dissapointed as the Cubs and Yankees both were eliminated first round of post season...But there is always next year right?! Anyway, nothing very exciting today, but only time will bring exciting things!! We will keep you updated!
