It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas.

Another year has flown by and so many things have changed for us. We are finally starting to feel settled in here. This is the first city where Josh and I have both really enjoyed living in. Sorry Cedar, you were not cutting it for us. In the last year we have found adventure, made new friends, and finally started to create a home. The apartment we are in right now is small, but works for us.

It looks like Josh and I will be here for a little while so we have began to play with the idea of buying a home in the area until he is done with school. Since he still has a little while to go in his undergraduate program and then plans to continue into a masters program we will probably remain in the Salt Lake Valley for the next three years or so.

In August, Josh and I celebrated our second anniversary. Although a lot of this anniversary was spent driving home from his brother Jonathan's wedding in Reno we were able to have a little time together. It wasn't the most romantic of anniversaries, but it was great to see everyone nonetheless.

In October, I celebrated my twenty-third birthday with a trip to Ohio. This was the first time Josh met his nieces and nephew. We spent ten days there and were able to do a lot of fun fall things. Josh fell in love with Audrey and Hannah. It took him a few days to warm up, but after he realized those little girls are unbreakable he started to feel much more comfortable. For the next week Josh toted around those girls everywhere. Liam had grown so much and it was hard for me to come to terms with the fact he is in first grade. Hannah is the most content baby I've ever met. I am pretty sure she didn't cry once the entire time we were there. Audrey is the wild one, but definitely the life of the party. Her mannerisms and personality always kept the days interesting.  Here are some pictures of our adventures while we were there.

Josh and I enjoying hot apple cider at the pumpkin patch.

Josh and Audrey picking raspberries at a farm near my sisters house. She wasn't the best at the collecting party, but she had the snacking part down pat.

Audrey in her Minnie Mouse dress that she wore every day we were there.

And, like I said, he loved Hannah.

While we were there Lindsay also took our family photos. She is new to the world of professional photography, but is it something she has always enjoyed, and something I thing she is very good at. Below are a few of my favorites.

If you are in Cleveland and need a wedding photographer she is AMAZING. Here is a link to her website:

We are looking forward to the holidays and spending time with family in Canada. We will be spending 8 short days there so I can be back in time to get my wisdom teeth removed and back to work after the new year.

We are so grateful for this last year and everyone who was involved in it. We appreciate you all so much and are happy to have each and everyone in our lives. Thank you for an awesome 2013 we can't wait to see what 2014 has in store for us.
