Last year...

Last year we were here in Durango. I miss it but it feels great to be home to celebrate the New Year with family and friends.

Wedding Bells!!

Yes, we're finally engaged and so happy! It's amazing and feels so great!

The engagement:
Scott was in Nada for Christmas Eve and went back to Tomball that night. I was supposed to head to Tomball Christmas Day for his family's Christmas but I was feeling a little sick. So I woke up and headed to church with Mom Christmas morning. I was feeling okay by that time and headed to Tomball.

We opened presents with his family at their house and then Scott and I went to our house to exchange our gifts in our new house. He opened all his presents first and then told me to open my gifts. He wanted me to open a specific gift first and so I did. When I opened it, it was a big decorative "F" that I originally was going to give to his mom for Christmas but decided not to. When Scott and I were discussing the "F", I joked with him and told him that maybe one day I could hang it in my house. So, when I opened the present and saw the "F", I was confused and when I looked up he was on his knee and told me that he loved me very much and asked if I would marry him! I was shocked and didn't say anything! He had to ask me three times before I realized he was for real!! We put the ring on and if fit perfectly! Did I mention that the ring is absolutely gorgeous!

We are both so happy and cannot wait to be husband and wife!

Kinsey Friedrichs!

Please Blog

Could someone out there from my friends and family please start a blog? Please? It's such a great communication tool and it's fun.

I read tons of blog daily. At night, it's my time to relax and I upload my Goggle Reader that shows if any of the blogs I read have been updated. All of the blogs I read are people I do not know (which Scott thinks is incredibly strange). Most of them are about families that have children who have medical problems and others are photographers and stay at home moms who do crafts or whatever. It's not weird.

I will list all the blogs I read and if you check out a few, you will be hooked too. There are beautiful stories and families out there. Some need prayers, others are just fun blogs.

We're healthy!

Last week, the girls had a vet appointment. Honey is a pro at this but it was the first time I was taking Skylar.

Scott's mom met me at the vet to help with the dogs. There was no way I could have handled both dogs.
Skylar did suprising well. She was so good, even when they gave her the shots. She just looked at me and let out a cry :(

They're both healthy and happy!
On the way home...

Lovely Tree

This picture really does not do my tree any justice. It is so beautiful in person. I've just been sitting here staring at it :)

He hunts, I shop!

Scott is gone hunting for the weekend so Mom came to town and we've been having a great time. We ran some errands, went shopping, made a new chili recipe and put up my beautiful Christmas tree. It is so pretty, I love it! Tomorrow, we'll be domestic and do some baking and take a trip to Costco.

Our floor for the house came in, so Scott will hopefully be installing it this next week. I CANNOT WAIT!!!

We have two more weeks of school until the Christmas Holidays. Lots of weddings and parties coming up! Good times!

My Christmas cards will be mailed soon and once they go out, I'll post some of the pictures from my Christmas photo shoot. They are great!
