Hockey, Utah & Cars

So I've been slacking lately on keep this updated, so I'll just throw the past few weekends into one. About three weeks ago we went to a hockey game in Jackson Hole Wyoming with some of our friends, and it was so much fun, that was my first hockey game--and I loved it.

Then two weekends ago we were able to get out of Rexburg and stay the weekend with Mary and Brian--it was a blast! I miss those guys and wish they lived closer. I don't think our husbands especially like it when we get together, but they are troopers and put up with it. It was a good relaxing weekend...good to be away from Rexburg/work & school for a while.

But I think one of our favorite parts of the weekend...was when we got a new car. We've been searching for months to find a good long lasting car--and have been saving all of our pennies for quite some time for a car. And we got extremely lucky finding exactly what we wanted for a really good price. These pictures aren't the best and Adam didn't want to post these...because they have really bad glares...but you can at least see what it looks like.

And lastly since Thanksgiving is coming up I think it would be appropriate to list all of the MANY blessings in my life that I am very thankful for, I LOVE my family--I must've done something right to be put into such a wonderful family. I love all of my sisters, and I've been lucky the past few years to live so close to a couple of them, they are my best friends. My brothers are so cute and so good to everyone, my parents are some of the finest people I know, and have been the two greatest influences in my life, all of my in-laws, the ones that have married into the Fennell Fam, and the family I married into, grandparents, all of our friends, being a member and having a testimony and knowledge of the church, a temple marriage, leaders, jobs, food, hot water, hot tamales and kettle corn, good health, our apartment and cars, nieces and nephews, sports, naps, sweat pants, sun sets, crafts & decorations, holiday's...and so much more--but last but not least--Adam, he has been THE greatest blessing in my life, my goodness I could not have asked for a better husband, he is everything that is good and right about my life (cheesy I know...but true) and without a doubt he makes me laugh everyday, I am so blessed to start and end everyday with my best friend. Well on that note...I'm excited to go to Rupert this week and have Thanksgiving with my family. Happy Thanksgiving to everyone!

She is really little, she was 5 lbs 9 oz--but just as cute as can be! Congrats John and Meagan! We love you three!

Word to yo Mamma.....

President Obama.....all I have to say about that-- at least Proposition 8 passed...and thats a good thing. Oh yeah...and God bless America! But...on a much brighter note. ADAM IS GRADUATING!!!! The end is in sight...which is a blessed thing--but now we just have to figure out what is in store for us next. We actually thought he had one more semester up here. At first we were a little upset about the school because originally he was supposed to graduate in December, they had all of his classes ready to go...and a week into school they told him some of them wouldn't work/count...meaning he would have to stick around to make up two more classes. But they totally redeemed themselves...and put a little cluster together of some of his previous classes so that he could be done. So his hard work has paid off! Way to go poopsie! Well it snowed a little bit last night...and I hate the snow and the cold...but surprisingly I woke up really happy this morning when I saw it--it made me SO excited for the holiday's. I've been listening to Christmas music lately, and thats made me anxious for it to get here, so the snow added a little to that excitement.
