This year for Halloween was not a very exciting one...I had to work a double that day so me and Cory didn't get to do anything together. But I was excited that my boss said that we could dress up for Halloween! So the night before we headed over to Walmart to see if we could find something that I could wear. Sadly, there was only this way cool t-shirt and amazingly huge eyelashes! I really like Halloween and think its really fun to play dress-up for the day, even if this is all I could find to wear! We live in an apartment complex that doesn't get any trick-or-treaters so Cory spent the night at a fireside were Lavell Edwards spoke! He thought it was pretty cool being a big BYU fan and all! Well, hopefully next year we will be able to do something together and a little bit more Halloweenish!

I know I haven't posted in awhile and I think its about time! I love the fall season, and for the first time I am spending it in Virginia, which in my opinion has the most beautiful fall weather! The leaves are changing with a cool breeze in the air, everyone's getting costumes and lots of treats to share! :) Just a little rhyme for you all! Well to catch everyone up on our lives recently, I will start with with the volleyball intramurals. Cory, Wesley (cory's younger brother), JJ and Christanie (our neighbors/friends) put a team together that completely dominated! I was on baby duty with JJ and Christanie's adorable baby boy, Brady, which I totally volunteered for knowing that if I played I would only be hurting the team. :) It was alot of fun and they came out as champs in the end with winning shirts and all!
Next Cory and I where able to take a fun trip to the WA DC temple! At SVU they have a tradition were they take one day out of the semester for anyone who is interested in going to the temple for the day; free bus ride and lunch included! I am so glad we were able to do that it is such a beautiful temple!
Lastly, yesterday for FHE we got together with JJ and Christanie for some pumpkin carving!! We had a really great time and I made some yummy fruit pizza for dessert (even though thats not really a fall treat). Can you quess which one is Cory's?? Of course he did the MJ #23 one, I did the spider, Christanie did the cat, and JJ did the face. We are so blessed to live next to such great friends and we always love the time we spend together! The last picture is of Cory holding Brady from last night...he is so cute and we love playing with that little guy any chance we get!

For the summer Cory and I were in Corpus Christi, TX where we both worked for Pinnacle Security...Cory as a salesman and me as the office girl! We were having a bit of trouble with our camera so we weren't able to take very many pictures, soory! However, with the crazy working hours and 6 days a week selling schedule, it didn't leave much time for us to go and do very much sight-seeing. It was definitly a learning experience summer for both of us, and we had some great times getting to know wach others as newlyweds! The pictures I posted are when we went to the Corpus Christi Aquarium, I just really liked this picture of the turtle so I had to put it on here and then one of Cory walking out the door to sell...this is what summer sales does to you!
Right after our wedding on May 3, 2008 we packed up our car and made our way down to Texas. But we made a few stops along the way...First we went to Nauvoo, IL for a quick little visit! We love Nauvoo and the beautiful temple there. Next stop was Branson Missouri, and what a time that was!!! The very first thing we did as we pulled into town was go to a dinner and show performance called the Dixie Stampede! It featured singing, dancing, horse tricks and races, lots of southern food, and best of all the one and only Dolly Parton! It was so hilarious I almost cried, but we had a great time. After that we went to some other shows and shops in town, justing enjoing the time we had before the busy summer we had a head of us. Before we knew it we were in Texas to start our first summer with Pinnacle Security!
