19 days left!!

For Thanksgiving we spent the week with the Cunninghams and painted our room although it isn't finished just yet.





















Ashlynn may have ended up painting I love you on Michael!

















Our closet wall Ashlynn decorated.




Happy Thanksgiving from us!!
















During the break we got to babysit Cali's beautiful baby Parker!  She was sealed and blessed over this past weekend!!  Ashlynn and her slept like that the whole day practically!





















Such a cute baby girl!!































Michael was trying to help this lady get out of the snow drift but the plow ended up pulling her out.


I sat in the nice and warm car!  Excuse the uglyness because I had no make-up on!

 















The Cunninghams have the CUTEST kitten!!  Her name is Rascal and we just love her!!

Well as for everything else we are still VERY happy and yes we're still getting married!  We can't wait and these 19 days aren't getting here fast enough.  Life is good...

Life for us lately...

Last weekend we drove down to Utah and bought Ashlynn's wedding dress!!  She really loves it and it ended up being just like one she tried on in the store but so much cheaper.  Still need to get Michael a tux.  We also made a guess book at http://www.shutterfly.com which was a lot of fun to make and everyone just signs around our pictures!  We had free shipping so it wasn't too bad for such a unique book.


We also have booked our honeymoon and got a really great deal on it!  Check it out http://www.savannahbeachinn.com/marshall.htm  .  Needless to say, we are VERY excited about that!


All of our plane tickets are finally bought and we're just waiting for the 40 days to hurry up and get here.  School is still going really well for both of us.


Today Michael got his wedding ring in the mail so Ashlynn decided to be a dork and propose to him at the duck pond which was pretty funny!!  Who would of ever thought she'd turn in to a mooshy-gooshy lovie-dobie girl???  Guess it takes the right guy!


We also got to see Collin Raye in concert this past weekend and he was awesome!  We don't think we don't think we've ever heard someone say that you so many times in one concert!  He sang "That's my story and I'm sticking to it" and "If you get there before I do".  We were surprised we knew as many songs as we did since he was huge in the 90s when we were kids.


It started snowing here!  A TON!  Which Michael is very excited about but Ashlynn on the other hand... not so much hehe! 






Here is Michael chowing down on some lifesavers!  He put this whole box in his mouth!!!  Crazy kid :)


And Cali's cute lil baby Parker!!  We just love her and Gid the kid so much!!!  

Eating at Olive Garden as our celebration of being engaged...




Yummy Shirley Temples!!   CHEERS :)




We are still the VERY happily engaged couple!!

The D.I.

So today we went to the D.I. to use some spare time before Ashlynn had to work.  We were talking about how we needed a carry on that was meant for hang up clothes and found a pretty nice one for $5!  We were pretty excited!!  Then we went looking through books and came to find out that we both wanted a HUGE collection which was pretty cool to learn about each other.  So we started getting tons of books.  Sad part...  we realized we were poor so we ended up putting all of them back except a Nicholas Sparks one for $.50 (Ashlynn wants that collection pretty bad!) and a GIGANTIC family King James Version Bible for $12!  Couldn't let go of those deals!    Sum of the story...  The D.I. is AWESOME!!!

Starting our life together!!!

Ashlynn and I are engaged!!! On October the 22nd, I popped the question! It was the most amazing night of our lives! I didn't do anything super fancy, just something simple and nice. I cannot lie I was so nervous! But in the end she said yes!!! I took her out to dinner at a nice sushi place (one of our favorite foods), and then took her for a walk through the gardens on campus. When we got to a little gazebo, I asked her to sit down and when she turned around I was on my knee and I asked her to be my wife! Most amazing moment of my life to date! From that point on things have just fallen into place for us. Everything is working out so well! We are getting married in Nauvoo, Illinois on December 21, 2010.

The weather here has been really cold and windy, but we somehow managed to get our engagement pictures taken! We had a lot of help from Heavenly Father on that one! When we went out to take pictures the first time, it was snowing and sooooo cold!!! We said a prayer that the wind and snow would stop so that we could get our pictures taken and sure enough, the wind stopped and the snow stopped as well! AMAZING!!! We went out to shoot some more pictures the next day and it was just beautiful! It was sunny and clear, cold but thats alright, and we were able to take some more pictures. 

Everything is coming together for our wedding! Our parents are being very supportive, and we are having so much fun going through this process! We are both so excited! We cannot wait for the 21st of December to get here!
