Go Aggies!!

Pippi Longstocking

This week has been pretty smooth sailing for Bear and I. We were stoked to come to school on Wednesday and find out that our class was canceled, we actually had a chance to work on some homework. Unfortunately though we have a test in that class this coming week and we had no review. Ick. Psychology is really not are cup of tea.

So two weeks ago we went to Idaho for some reason I can't remember why but we were cruising through Shelly and Bear spotted an "A" for Aggies on a cement wall down by the river! So we made a u-ee and snapped a shot of it, which I will post.

We are in Idaho again this weekend because Bear and I both had doctor appointments. We have been having tons of fun with the family. My brother and I got to chit chatting about our childhood and we remembered this time that we decided to mop the kitchen floors. Inspired by Pippi Longstocking, we tied sponges to our feet, dumped way too many suds on the floor, and tugged the garden hose into the house. Our parents left us alone. Bad move right there! But miraculously, our parents never found out and were actually pleased with the clean kitchen floor! And we had a blast slipping and sliding on our sponges!

Well we hope everyone had a good weekend. Good luck gearing up for midterms! We are almost half way done!
I wonder who is winning? Haha nerf wars are just too much fun!

A Little More About Us

Last weekend was a success with our nieces and nephew, we had tons of fun and nothing in my house broke! I will post a few of our pictures next week, I forgot my camera today. Even though we didn't have classes Monday it has been one hectic week. At Little Brigham Aggies we had a few employees that had things come up so the rest of us were busy filling in their shifts, but I do like the extra hours $$$! Bear has been busy keeping up with his classes trying hard not to fall behind. I should be doing the same thing. hmmm. Looks like that is what I will be doing this weekend! Bear is all sorts of excited because he gets to hang out with his buddy Bryan this weekend and they are going to go snow machining (Bear's absolute favorite thing to do)! Bryan's wife and I are going to stay at her place and make food for when the boys come back. She went to culinary school so I am hoping she shows me her tricks of the trade! I really enjoy cooking I just wish I had more time to do it and experiment with new recipes. I think it is easy to do the same recipes all the time because you know that both you and your spouse like them and if you try something new and don't like it, in our case, there is no time to re-make another meal. I'm bound and determined so I will...someday! :) You guys have a great weekend and hopefully next week will be more exciting to write/read about!

Buns of Steel

Last weekend was a success for our movie day we had 415 people attend. Thanks to all of you that participated! Clair and I went to "When in Rome" and I have to say, not my favorite. But it was free so I can't complain right?

Just in case you haven't heard, we have our very own physical trainer on campus for students. She is excellent and wants to help everybody no matter how much or how little you have to work on. Her schedule is as follows:

Monday 6:30am, 11:30, 12:30, 1:30, 8:00pm
Tuesday 6:15 am
Wednesday 6:30am, 11:30, 12:30, 1:30, 4:45pm
Friday 6:30am, 11:30, 12:30, 1:30pm

Bonus: There is NO fee attached!

I am excited for this weekend not only because I get to spend time with my cuddly Bear but our neices and nephew will be staying with us, we are the babysitters. If that doesn't scare ya I don't know what will! We're going to make sugar cookies, I'll probably be find frosting in places I didn't know existed but it will be a good time! Bear's brothers are also going to be staying with us so we are going to have a house full this weekend. Everybody have a good Valentine's and remember no school Monday!! Whoo hoo!

My mother-in-law taught me how to dip chocolates this year! Being a huge fan of chocolate, I loved every second of it and it was delectable!

Merry Christmas Mom and Dad! Go Aggies! (Bear's parents)

On Christmas Eve we had some very tasty prime rib that Bear made. My mouth is watering just thinking about it!
This is my cute new nephew!! I love him to pieces! I just wish we lived in Idaho so we could see him more!

We attended the Christmas Devotional in Salt Lake City. When we go to big events we always bring our body guard along.
Bear loved riding our horse while we had him (he would ride him every morning before school). Don't you love our Texas Christmas tree!?
This is our giant snowman! We built him on a Saturday night and by Sunday morning he kicked the can!
Bear helping his buddy out with his truck.


Since we are so far behind I think I will get y'all caught up with some pictures. They say a pictures worth a thousand words!
We are a little behind the times! With school, student gov. and work, we have become a little stressed out. We aren't in the semester that long either!
A week or so ago we had the opportunity to go to the chamber of commerce banquet. We went because our recently retired Executive Director, Andy Shinkle, received the Total Citizen Award. It was fun to be there and see a well deserved individual get recognized.
Our classes range from fun to "let's just get it out of the way". McKinzie is in a photography class and has been talking some fun pictures. I wish I was as talented as she is. They look really good. Maybe I can convince her to let me put some on here.
We have some fun activities lined up for the students. This Saturday we are having a movie day at walker cinema! It looks like we have had a lot of people interested in it because we have given a lot of tickets away. So get there early before your show sells out! The LDSSA club is putting on a dance this month. As soon as I get the info from them I will be sure to let everybody know so they can come over and shake it.
We hope this finds everybody doing well! Take care.
