We had such a great time in Mexico. I have never been catered so great in my life! The resort was priceless!!! We arrived and they brought us a wet clean towel to cool down from the travels and the humidity! Our rooms were amazing!!!

The resort was beautiful! The sand was so pretty and pure white! It felt so good on our feet. When we would go to the beach, the waiter would come and cater us all day long and make sure that we didn't run low on our Strawberry Colada! Can we say that by the time that the trip ended, me and Brent had turned into Strawberries due to drinking them so much!!! The food there was excellent! There were like 5 or so restaurants to choose from every night and we tried them all and everything was so good!

The weather was perfect, a little overcast but yet still warm! We went snorkeling and Brent went golfing. But other than that, we were totally beach bums!! We would always go out and play in the waves too! That was fun. Its something about the waves that just mesmerizes you. There were some dogs that would always come and visit on the dot of 11:30 everyday for lunch time! We aren't sure where they came from, there were 2 banded resorts next to us so I'm sure they hung out there! People would always feed them too. They would run whenever they saw someone from the resorts. They reminded me of a dog that me and my brothers used to have out on the farm and his name was Poochie! Also at the swimming pool there were some iguanas that would like to bask in the sun and lay out on the rocks!

It was weird to think that it was Christmas time since it was 85 degrees out side. We went to breakfast one day and we saw that they made a ginger bread house! That was neat. They also had a really cool tall tree too. I didn't get a real good picture of it.

Here are a few random pictures that were taken of me and Brent!

Congrats to Brent for graduating school! I'm so proud of him and for all the hard work that he has put forth! This trip was good for both of us to kind of wind down. But I guess that the next step in life we have to grow up! Haha but we will still be kids at heart!

Here are some pictures of the resort and the day we left the sun was shining. So of course, I wear flip flops and shorts. When we land in Salt Lake, its snowing and we have to wait for our hotel to come get us and it takes like 30 mins. To say the list my toes pretty much fell off! Oh well, I brought it all on myself!! Haha

Also congrats to Sammy and Wes! We will have a new future brother in law! They got engaged over the trip. We are so excited for them and can't wait to help plan a wedding!!! Thanks mom and Steve for such a great time! This will be one Christmas that we will not forget!!

What have we been up to lately?! Well, a lot has been going on. First we will start with Thanksgiving. We had a great Thanksgiving. We were able to go home and spent time with Family. Unfortunately, I had to work the day after so me, Brent and Brent's mom Lee Ann all piled in the car at 4:30 am to take me back to work in Boise! They went out and did some Christmas shopping while I was at work and then they came by to check on me at 2 and my manager said that I could leave at 3!!! YAHOO!! That was the best news ever! We were able to drive back home to Burley and spend the rest of the weekend there!

As for Brent, he is graduating from BSU in a week! Can we say how EXCITED we are?! I'm so proud of him and how he has worked so hard on his school work. We decided that we needed to get away so my mom surprised us and is taking us on a vacation to.......

Yup, that is right Cancun, Mexico. In one week from TODAY we will be in Mexico drinking our pina colda!! Can't wait. We are going to hold a special ceremony on the beach for Brent's graduation!

As for the job, we are in the process of packing things up AGAIN...yes Brent just reminded me that this is move number 3 for the year! We found out that Brent is going to be in Twin Falls for about a year working on a project there for W.W. Clyde and then we will make our way down to Utah! We are so excited to be closer to our family and we will still get to see my brother and his family in Washington quite a few more times! Also, a new little nephew is on the way in January so I will be able to be there to meet him too!

Merry Christmas to all and hope everyone has a happy holiday! We will post some more pictures when we get back from our wonderful much needed vaca!!
