Happy Thanksgiving!!!!

So we spent this thanksgiving with Josh's family this year (Miss you Tiff!) It was a lot of fun and a lot of food!! Thanksgiving is one of my favorite holidays mainly because it makes you sit down and think about the many many things we're thankful for in this life. Here is a list of some of the things Josh and I are thankful for. (In no particular order)
  • A safe home to live in for a great price.
  • Our temple marriage.
  • Wonderful Families who love and support us.
  • Vehicles to drive.
  • Jobs that enable us to have Mu la. :)
  • Great friends that we enjoy spending our time with.
  • Josh breaking his wrist a blessing in disguise...( b/c that's all that happened in his motorcycle accident)
  • My interest in cooking.
  • Josh's mom for doing our dishes when she comes over :)
  • Our compatibility.
  • Josh's giving, loving, and patient personality.
  • Sweet nieces and nephews who make us laugh
  • blogspot... so we can keep up with our friends and family.
  • Fiona... our annoying, crazy, destructive, lovable feline.
  • Our health (BIG ONE)

Josh and his siblings. L-R Josh, Tammy, Mark, Trisha, Aaron, Tiffany, and Paul.

So I made Creamy Fresh Fruit Pie for thanksgiving and it was SOOO good!

1 9-inch pie crust or graham cracker crust
8 oz. cream cheese, softened
3/4-1 c. sugar
2 t. Vanilla
2 c. Heavy cream, whipped.
2 c. thinly sliced fruit (strawberries, peaches, raspberries, bananas, etc.)

*Bake and cool pastry shell. Set aside.
*Beat together cream cheese, sugar and vanilla. Whip cream separately. Fold or beat them together. Spread into baked pastry shell. Cover & Refrigerate. May be made 1 day in advance. Just before serving, cover the top with fruit.

**** I added a little bit of powdered sugar to make it a little sweeter.

New Car!

So I got a new car (Well, I will technically have it in my possession tomorrow) Yay! But seriously... dealing with the car dealership guy made me exhausted.. So if I ever think about getting another, please remind me of my VW Beetle experience :) But its suuuper cute so I can't wait for it to be parked in my parking lot.

The interior is all leather... so nice! and in way good condition.


Halloween was SO fun! And I cannot believe how warm it was.. didn't even need a jacket! We spent the evening with Josh's family and our friends Mike and Kindra.. We went trick or treating with his nieces and nephew.. they're so sweet. SO here are some pictures from halloween and from a family party.

This is what Amber looks like with josh's mustache and eyebrows :)

Counting Our Blessings....

So today we are counting our blessings. Yesterday morning Josh was in a pretty bad motorcycle accident. Thankfully, Josh is okay... He walked away with a broken wrist and a few scratches. I guess a truck cut him off when he was on his way to work forcing him to slam on his breaks and fly off the bike @ 45 mph. It was quite scene, Josh said there was a firetruck, ambulance and police... the whole Sha-Bang :) SO I woke up afraid to see that I had missed 13 calls! (my phone was on silent) Couldn't believe it. So when I finally called him he was already at the hospital and ready for me to come pick him up. My poor baby! All I could think about all day was how if he wouldn't have been wearing exactly what he was (winter coat, jeans AND snowboarding pants, gloves, and a helmet) He could've been alot worse off. We just feel very blessed and grateful for what we have.

Why does summer have to end? :(

Heyyyyy! So I have a feeling the warm days of this year will soon to be no more... So yesterday we decided to drive up the mountain and catch the beautiful colors before they die out. We went up to sundance first and walked around then we drove through the rest of the mountain. Last year we carved are initials in a tree so we found it again... the funny thing is, when we saw the tree.. we saw that the day we originally put it there was october 19th.. so that would be today! Almost exactly 1 year later. (That wasn't planned) But yea.. last night my friend Amanda and I decided to have some fun with Fiona and dressed her up in some jewelry.

Minnesota :)

So we went to MN at the end of last month, it was great to get away for a little trip. We did all the "Touristy" stuff like Mall of America, Minnesota State Fair, and Valley Fair. The weather was AWESOME! I just can't believe we left Utah when it was 90 degrees and got back to 59 degrees! Josh was able to have some of my mom's amazing meals that i've talked about so often... and he now swears that our trip expanded his stomach :)

We've now been married for almost 5 months and it has been wonderful! I can't believe its gone by so fast...! Josh is still in school and working at the same place.. I worked my last day at Home Depot last week! I started a nanny job in August watching 2 girls, 7 and 5. The mom also just had twin girls and they are SO cute! But I gotta go get ready for work!! So I hope everyone is doing well!

Fiona :)

So I'm not sure who all we've told, but we got a new kitten named Fiona. I found her under register 4 at Home Depot... She was pretty skiddish at first but has turned out to be a wonderful addition to our family! Every morning I wake up she is SO excited to see me (Mostly to eat :)) and she LOVES to sleep.. Thats our kind of cat.. LAZY!
Fiona's 2nd Bath
Shes not very photogenic :)

We also went up AF canyon again today and roasted some hot dogs which was really nice. It seems that the summer is coming to an end :( So we're trying to take advantage of the time we have.

Pioneer Day!

Summer Fun!

So today was a WONDERFUL Sunday :) The weather was hot. We went to Church then to Riverton to see baby Amara. It was fun to see Josh's family and play some Grand Theft Auto. I called home today and talked to Isabelle my sweet sweet niece.. When I told her we were coming at the end of the summer she said "I LOVE that!" SO it will be exciting to see her :) So as of right now, we are completely caught up on LOST.. waiting for the 5th season to start..hopefully it will make sense sometime soon. Heroes is our new fav..! So the 4th of July was fun, we went and watched fireworks with Paul and then lit off our own fireworks.. its funny how much stuff you can do with those things. So ours days pretty much consist of work and school these days, when were not there, we're at home or on Josh's bike! We went up the Canyon the other day and cooked Hot dogs... that was fun besides the fact that I burned my ankle on his bike :( But yea, its almost bed g'night to all my fans! (Becky:)

Our trip up the Canyon..

Been Awhile....

So it will be 3 months on the 12th! Its been absolutely wonderful :) I can't imagine being with anyone more perfect for me. But putting the "gushy" stuff aside, Josh started school about a month ago at Stephens Henager College.. and hes really been enjoying it. Hes also working at a place called Foundation Systems Inc. where he does tech support for pharmacies. I will be hitting my 2 year mark at Home Depot in September... (definately feels longer) and I'm currently looking for a new job, I would like to do some time of clerical work.. So we'll see what happens :) We're planning a trip to MN from Aug 27th to Sept 1st and we're way excited..! I can't wait to show Josh the beautiful green of MN.. and also show him the dog-sized mosquitos! Josh's sister in law Jenn had a beautiful little baby on the 1st of July.

Amara Destiny Slagowski - Thats alot of letters.

We're looking forward to both Becky's and Sara having their babies as well! So that was a quick update on whatgs going on with us, I'll try to blog more :) Love you all and miss you! Happy 4th of July! (tomorrow)
