Oh Blogging

I really don't know why blogging is so hard for me. I mean, it's so easy! I guess it really just comes down to the fact that I'm lazy and have nothing interesting to say. So at my rate, I am now blogging every couple months. haha So, my goal now is to get better and do it more often. I think I end up waiting so long that I start forgetting everthing I wanted to blog about in the first place.

So the only thing I can think about blogging about is Thanksgiving and how amazing it was to have all my siblings there! It's been a couple years since we have all been around the Thanksgiving table because Cameron was on his Mission and Scott and I were in Utah last year. It always means so much to me to have my family around. I love them so much and it's crazy how old we are all getting! Tia just turned 11 last month! where has the time gone? I remember when she was in diapers dancing around in my mom's heals that were 10 times to big for her. and when she would roar like a dinosaur on command and drink milk out of the gallon that was almost as big as she was. Soon she will be a teenager and then start high school, go to college and get married. AH! It's so crazy! Katelyn is almost 20 and getting more beautiful everyday, Cameron is 21 and leaving for college in January, Chris is 25 and living up in Portland going to massage school, and I'm 23, married, and living my own life. We are all adults now and I never thought the time would come where we would be separated and only seeing each other every once and awhile on holidays or other random events. So That's why Thanksgiving meant so much to me. To have all the people I love in one place for that one day was amazing! So I am looking forward to Christmas where we can all be together again before more of us move away and makes it that much harder for all of us to get together. I have amazing parents, all 4 of them! I couldn't have asked for better. They each have contributed in their own ways to the person I am today and I thank all of them for being there for me. and I love that they are all family oriented and strive to get us all together as much as possible. :) Oh and last but not least, I love this time of year!!! It's absolutely my favorite. I'll try to get better at blogging and doing it more than once every two months. lol Life is Wonderful and I couldn't be happier :)

Family Pumpkin Patch Trip :)

Just some Pictures from our Pumpkin Patch trip to Lone pine last weekend. I love it! We try to do it every year :)

It's just about time...

Well I haven't blogged in over 2 months, so It's just about time to do it again. I honestly think it just takes that long for anything interesting to even happen. Scott and I just do about the same stuff everyday and everything else really isn't interesting to read. lol In the past 2 months we have moved into a new apartment. We did this back in September and we love it here! we are still trying to get everything organized and put together. I bought our first kitchen table last month and it's awesome! I have never owned one before. At the same time we moved in we adopted 2 kittens that were 4 months old at the time. A brother and sister that have extra toes on their front paws. So they are our special kitties. We love them! The little girl's name is Pickles (she's the black one) and the little boy is Pancake. We thought they should have silly names and they are the best Kittens ever! we lucked out big time. They are pretty much my kids. :)
Hmm... What else, I have started doing Photography a lot more since I got my new camera for my birthday in September and I'm having so much fun with it! I love it so much! I'm still trying to figure everything out and working as much as I can on it. It's very scary for me to put myself out there with so many talented photographers who are a lot better than I am. Everyday though I am learning more and more techniques, so that makes me happy and comforts me to know I'm only getting better.
My parents are remodeling their kitchen finally and it's almost done! The last of the tile is going in today! It looks so good! My parents deserve it for all the hard work they do. I'm glad they finally did something for themselves. The Kitchen is amazing! My brother Cameron got accepted to BYU-Idaho and will be going there this winter and I'm really excited for him. I loved it there and I know he will too. Oh I forgot I haven't even blogged since my birthday, so I should probably say something about this amazing camera I got. So for my birthday, my amazing husband, my parents, some of my grandparents, and my siblings all chipped in for my new Nikon D5000 Camera. It's the best present I have ever received. I love it so much. I'm so grateful to have a husband and family who believe in me enough to buy me something that expensive. But, believe me I am putting it to good use and using it whenever possible. I usually will make up things to take pictures of. haha I made a Blog of some of my work so far and it is growing fast. It's Stop by and let me know what you think. :)
So I honestly think that's all that has happened in the past couple months. I'm pretty boring. oh and I just want to shout out that I have to most amazing husband in the world. I can't believe I was lucky enough to find a person who loves me as much as he does. My love for him grows daily and I'm so excited for our future together! I know this is mushy, but it's true. I couldn't have asked for anyone more perfect for me. So I guess now for some pictures to brighten up this boring post. haha
So these aren't the best pictures because getting 2 kittens to stay still for very long just doesn't happen. But at least you can kind of see their extra toes. :)

One Year Anniversary =)

Scott and I just celebrated our one year anniversary yesterday August 21st! I can't believe it has already been a year since we got married. It has honestly been the best year of my life and I am so thankful for my husband and our life together. He makes me so happy and knows me better than anyone else ever could. I am just so excited for our years to come and what we have in store. He is going to be an amazing father some day and I can't wait to have a family with him. For our anniversary we went over to the coast because we love it so much. We stayed in Florence over night and then traveled up to Newport the next day. Our hotel was nice, mostly because it was on the beach and all the rooms had an ocean view. It was GORGEOUS! Yesterday was the best day I've had in a long time! It was so nice to spend time together without work and the hassles of everyday life. The day started out with us walking around Florence and eating lunch at a really good restaurant with really good fish and chips and then we traveled up to the sea lion caves (the largest natural sea cave in the world) which is occupied by hundreds of sea lions. sadly, when we went there weren't any sea lions in the cave, but it was still beautiful! to get down to the cave you have to take an elevator 200 feet down through rock. it's scary! haha we were lucky enough to see a gray whale swimming around in the ocean right in front of the caves, so that was really cool!

The Whale blowing water

A really cool water fall that created a rainbow outside the cave

View looking towards Heceta Head lighthouse

This is where all the Sea Lions normally are inside the cave ( Main Part)

After the Caves we headed up to Yachats and fed some seagulls and then we finally ended up in Newport where we went the the Wax museum, Underwater sea world, and the Ripley's believe it or not museum. They were a lot of fun. I loved wax museum, it was my favorite of all 3! Inside the wax museum they had this rotating room thing that I loved and hated. Inside was a bridge you would walk across, but it was dark with tiny lights everywhere and the bridge stood still but the walls circled you. It was crazy and made you feel as though you were going to turn upside down. So fun, but made me so dizzy! The underwater world was neat because it looked like a boat on the ocean, but you walk inside and it's a gift shop, but then you go 10ft downstairs and it's a giant fish tank underwater that consisted of fishes, crabs, eels, and sea life all native to Oregon and they also had a diver go in and show you all the different creatures. And then there was the Ripley's museum. It was pretty cool. The shrunken heads were awesome but really gross. The only thing is I wish they would have had more real artifacts rather than replicas. But still fun!! Finally after Newport we headed to Corvallis for dinner and then back to Eugene to eat some of our 1 year old cake topper. haha and it really wasn't too bad. So our anniversary was Amazing! I loved every minute of it and I love my husband so much! I can't wait till our next one. :)

One of the Shrunken heads...yeah, you can see my camera, but It wouldn't go away. haha

Wax dragon and mermaid

Lord of the Rings characters in wax

Some headless man in wax...

ET in wax! It was freaky cause I couldn't really see him till I took a picture of him with my flash. It was kind of creepy.

Scott in the weird rotating room thing. This picture came out weird, cause it doesn't look like that. It's pitch black with tiny neon lights everywhere.

Scott kissing Johhny Depp

Apparently Scott likes him more than I do...I didn't try to kiss him. lol

Performing for wax people. I think they were famous, but I couldn't figure out who they were suppose to be. I think the one in black and pink to my left was Barbara Streisand.

And Finally Scott cutting into our wedding cake. I couldn't believe it wasn't disgusting. lol :)

Family Time

Earlier this month the Mulder side of my family had a very needed reunion up in Lincoln City. I hadn't seen most of my family in oh 10 or so years. Everyone lives so far apart and it's sad we don't see each other as often as we would like. But everyone finally made it in one spot and I got to see all of them...well some longer than others, but still awesome non the less. I wish I would have had more time with all of them. We were only up there for a night and part of the next day. I want as I get older and begin to start my own family, to strive to stay close to my own family. I think it's very important to know your cousins, aunts, uncles, grandparents, ect... I love my family to death and want us to stay close to each other. :) So hopefully in the future we will have more reunions and I'll be able to get to know everyone a little bit better.

On another note, my step sister Lindsey and her husband Mark came to visit us here in Oregon from California a couple weeks ago with their little girl Cadence. It was so good to see them! I hadn't seen Mark and Lindsey in 4 or so years I believe and this was the first time I have ever met my niece. She is so adorable and smart! she will be 3 on Christmas day. I feel so fortunate to have had so much family around this month, it's sad that most of them are all gone. So while Cadence was here I decided to take some pictures of her because she is goofy and very adorable :)

Cameron is Home!

Ok ok ok, I know it has been forever since I actually wrote anything on here, so I am making myself sit down and do it now. lol Oh really not that much has happened in the past couple months. Cameron is home now! yay! He got home late Thursday night on August 6th and is looking awesome! It is so good to have him around again. He is one of my best buddies :) Right now he is living at home trying to figure out what to do for school and work. His spirit and strength amazes me and I look up to him so much. I love having people like him around me, because they only lift you up and make life fun!

His First Night Home

Cameron and I before his Mission

Since he has been back I have found that he hasn't really changed that much, he is still the fun loving, funny, witty, silly brother I had before, but now he is older, wiser and definitely more spiritual. He is still the same person, just a lot more experienced in life. I have very handsome brothers and am proud of all of them. :) lol. Anyways, I love my bro and am so happy he is home again! I still can't believe he is 21! It's crazy to think he is that old already. haha

Summer Time Pictures

These are just some pictures I took for fun yesterday. I'm trying to get better at using my new camera.
