Hey everyone- Yes, I have a pretty awesome husband. It's not very often that you see someone's blog with their husbands post. Well it probably won't happen again for a while. Like he said he is getting super busy with the tax season. Got to love this time of year, especially when your husband is an accountant. It's almost 8:00 and he's still not home and it's not even March!! So keeping that in mind let's all hope that I can use my time wisely and 1- keep my blog updated, 2- go to the gym at least everyday for at least 2 hours & 3- possibly get some scrapbooking and cards done.

Well, here are some of the pictures from the last little bit!!

My ipod died before Christmas so Chase got me this cute little pink one for when I go to the gym & running. I absolutely love it!!

Chase & I got matching North Face coats and he was super happy!!

This is Christmas Day at Chase's house in Delta!!

Christmas with all of the girls!!

As Chase mentioned after Christmas we left for Texas to go and see my sisters family. She just had a baby that was still in the hospital so we went to go visit, help them move in and mostly to play with these 3 DARLING LITTLE GIRLS!!

While it was freezing cold & snowing back home in Utah we were enjoying the 80 degree weather in Texas playing with the girls!

Chase and little Miss Merinda!!

Mom's b-day dinner in Texas!

Elisabeth & DeAnna

As soon as we got home we went to Brianhead for date night and went night tubing!! Here is Chase with his famous winter beanie!!

This is the only picture we got of me... as you can see I am going down the hill backwards. I struggle doing things the easy way!!

Well, these are just some of my most favorite Young Women. We had a big birthday party for one of their Tuesday night activities. Sad to say our ward just split and I have been released from this amazing calling. I just love these girls!!

Chaser just recently turned the big 26!! I tried my hardest to spoil him all day!! I think he had a good day? We had a really yummy dinner and met all of our friends for ice cream!!

For Valentines we spent the weekend up north with family and going to State Wrestles in Orem. Here is Chase with another one of our adorable neices, Sienna!!

We then made our way to Delta for the evening and went bowling with my mom & little brother!!

Last week I spent it up north going to a Dental Convention with Vannessa & Jeanette (girls that I work with). We had a ton of fun! Besides the classes all we did was eat, laugh & shop.... that's my kind of weekend. Too bad my camera died after this first picture was taken. I will hopefully be getting some more, so stay tuned for more!!

On the way home from the dental convention I met Chase in Delta so that I could run a 10k with my brother Jeremy and his wife Cortney. This is becoming quite the tradition. It wasn't as cold as last year and that's all that mattered to me! It was an awesome run and got me excited for this years races to come. I am excited for the next one... It's a triathlon, first one of the year!!

I just sat down with my wife tonight, and noticed that we didin't have a post since November sometime. With that being said, I am going to catch everyone up on what we have been up to. This is a very good time for me to actually be sitting down, because for the next few months, my wife won't even see me most likely. It's now tax season, and I am getting pretty busy at work. So long days and late nights are soon to be happening. I have really begun to love what I do. Now that I have been working with the firm for almost two years now, I have began to really get to know the clients that we serve. I decided to take a break from school for a semester so that I could focus directly on work. I'll be going back to finish up what I have left this summer.

DeAnna is a sweetheart. I don't know anyone who works as hard as she does. She has been really busy as work and with all of her other activities that she does. Church has kept us both pretty busy with the callings that we have. But today at church,we found out that we got switched into a new ward due to new ward bounderies. They created a new ward in the Enoch stake, and in the process, they changed the areas of all but one of the wards. So right now we have no callings! But im sure that we'll be getting new ones soon after we get moved over. I did pick up a new calling as a stake auditor. I am excited about this one, because it seems to fit. Scouts, my previous calling, wasn't my "cup-of-tea." DeAnna has been busy as a member in the youngwomens presidency. Now she'll have some more free time for all of the other things that she's involved in.

After Christmas, DeAnna and I took a trip to Texas to visit family and had a blast with everyone there. We helped James and Audrey and their family move in to their new beautiful home and help unpack TONS of boxes. We are also excited for the new addition to their family with new baby Nathaniel, and we can't wait to see him again. We are still loving our new home and plans for the yard are in the making. As soon as tax-season is overwith, we are getting it all put together. DeAnna is busy getting ready for races coming up in the spring and working out almost every day. Her "flex her muscles show" in the morning always puts a smile on my face. (Im glad someone has muscles to flex) We'll be posting photos next time, but for now this story will have to do. I'm sure you'd like to see something different than these crazy purses (we all know I do!!)
