Happy Thanksgiving!

I love love love Thanksgiving! Getting together with family, eating turkey, mashed potatoes and a ton of desserts, says the perfect holiday for me! This year was a little weird for us because our baby brother, well not really a baby anymore, is in Peru on his mission! Although he wasn't home to celebrate with us, he definitely was there in spirit! We took a picture to send to him for Christmas which was a lot of fun and I think it turned our really cute! Crystal brought her fiance Matt home to meet the whole family! I'm surprised that he didn't get scared off yet with all the craziness of all the niece and nephews! 

This morning 2 of my sisters and I went shopping for the Black Friday sales! Can I say MADNESS! Most stores opened at 4 am, but that was too early for us so we woke up at 4:15 ish to get to the stores around 5.  This was my first time shopping on Black Friday so I was anticipating standing in lines for hours. We actually got really lucky and got everything we needed and didn't need to stand for hours in lines! Yay! I cant wait for Christmas to come, it is my favorite time of year and the best holiday to decorate for! :) I hope everyone had a fantastic Thanksgiving!

Along came Kali!

So I've been a little preoccupied because of this cute thing...

My little miss Kali
Chase and I finally got the puppy that I've always wanted! Chase has always said that he would not let me get a dog unless it was a big outdoor dog. Well since we were close to moving into our house I've been bugging him to think about letting me get a puppy... but in indoor one, and a small dog! We were out running around town and I thought it would be fun to go to the new Petland and look at puppies, not thinking that I would ever get my dog. I had so much fun looking at the puppies, they were all so cute! Well that night Chase asked me how bad I wanted a puppy (I knew where this was going!!) and I just smiled  the biggest smile I could pull off! The next day we started looking and found Kali and called the lady to put her on hold. We drove up to Spokane the next day to get her! They brought her out to me and she looked like a little fluff ball and I immediately said "Sold!" She is so cute and I love having a puppy. Not only is she an indoor dog, but she runs around the WHOLE house (which is what Chase didn't want but he cant resist her) He loves his little girl!

Sorry I have been way behind on my blogging! Living with my parents hasn't helped since I don't have my own computer, where all of my pictures are! But don't worry... We're FINALLY(!!!!!!) moving out next week! We are both so excited to have our own space again! We really wanted to move out this week but Chase is really busy with music and has a few shows this weekend, and my nephew is getting baptized in Spokane! I cant believe how fast he is growing up. It seems like he should only be 5! Time has definitely flown by!

I'll post pictures soon!!

Everyones dream house :)

Now, you cant tell me that when you see this house you cant help but wish it is your, right? ha ha. Chase and I have been working for a couple of months on our house! We are still not done with the outside but it got a fresh coat of paint and it seemed to help a little with the TLC that was in dyer need!

" Before"
" After"our barn "Before"
I wasn't able to get my "before" pictures of our kitchen that I took because my computer isn't working, so you just get the "after" effect! (excuse the mess)
We are so excited to be able to move into it soon. We still have to finish the family room floor and laundry room but those hopefully wont take that long! For our first house it is going to be a nice place to start our lives together and we can not wait!

Summer fun!

This summer has gone by so fast! We had such a great time spending time with our families. Here's what we've done this summer...

We went with Chases parents to Vegas to see Coldplay in concert (highly recommended!) and had so much fun!
We had pretty good seats too!

We went to an "outdoorsy" hotel and casino and they had this little car outside. I couldn't help myself to a few pictures! The main reason we went there is because I really wanted to see an aquarium, but didn't want to pay the $15 to stand and watch fish swim. We heard about this hotel and that it had an aquarium in it and it was FREE! Oh and that there was a real life mermaid (I was actually really excited about that part)! We walked in and it was right in the front lobby and was actually really big. I sat there watching the fish forever and waiting for my mermaid!

How cool am I? Chase was laughing at me because I was pushing my way through the crowd of little kids just so I could have my picture taken with her! haha.
After we came back from Vegas, it was time for the Wilson Family Reunion! I love our family reunions, we always have a ton of family there (usually over 80) and stay up late playing games and catching up. This year we went to Lincoln City, OR! I love the beach and looking for whales, dolphins and sharks. I usually never see anything but I try and convince myself that I saw a fin! This year was different, I saw Whales!! yay! I wasn't able to take a picture because I was too afraid that I would miss the whale doing a cool jump. :) On our way back to Washington we decided to stop by the Portland Zoo. I have to say that I was really disappointed with it. There were a lot of animals that weren't there, but the best part of the zoo was the elephant. My sister, Valynn, can do a really good elephant impression so we told her to do it. Right after she was done the elephant picked up this log and chucked it out of the pen and it landed next to a bench and almost hit a couple. We thought it was really funny and it was the highlight of the zoo for me!
OK so its not a log, but its a REALLY big stick!

My nieces and nephews (minus one) at the penguins
Now that summer is nearly over I'm really looking forward to being able to stay inside and have hot chocolate, curl up in a blanket and watch movies. I also want to take a cake decorating class too, if anyone knows of any around here let me know and we can go together! :)

Our Honeymoon

This post is out of order but here it is... Our Honeymoon

We went on our honeymoon the beginning of May to Kauai, HI! It was so much fun. We went on a zip line, kayaking, hiking to a waterfall, we went to a lot of fun beaches and we took a 7 hour charter boat up the Na Pali Coast and over to the "forbidden island" to go snorkeling. It was such a fun place and Kauai is so beautiful! We'll definitely be going back!

I love palm trees

Our very own private beach... Hideaway beach, it was

amazing and small so there was hardly anyone else there!
Having fun in the water

Sending Mike off on his misson!

Mike entered the MTC on June 25th. It was a happy-sad-emotionally draining day for my family! I made the mistake of wanting to go down with my parents to take him in! When we dropped him off at the church we all went into the chapel for a meeting before all the missionaries left. The opening song was "Called to Serve" and my sister and I lost it, and from then on it wasn't pretty! I felt like we were the only ones crying so early into the program! But it was good to see him so excited to start his mission! We'll miss him like crazy but time will fly by... hopefully :)

Before Mike got set apart as a missonary

Getting his name tag

a little update

Its been a little while since I last posted so here's an update...

Chase and I have been house sitting for his voice teacher and she has 3 indoor cats. I'm not a big fan of cats, especially indoor ones. I started to get sick and didn't know if it were allergies so we decided to come back to my parents for the nights to see how I did. We were at my parents for a few days and I wasn't getting better, so we went to the doctors and found out that I had bronchitis... again! So this past week Ive been laying around the house, and haven't had anything too exciting happen.

Chase has been working hard on our house and the basement will be done in hopefully a week! Once the carpet is in we'll be living in the basement until the upstairs is finished!! YAY! :)
