 Supposedly this was the biggest moon in our lifetime!

 So we jumped on our roof to take a look!
 Marcus got new binoculars they worked great!
 So high up ;)
BIG!?? :D


 Marcus got me this beautiful arrangement it came in a teacup! It is my new favorite tea set in my collection!
 Our top of our cake got a little messed up but it tasted pretty good! I loved our cake it was the cutest thing! :D

 We decided that every year on our anniversary we were going to take a picture here is our first years!!
This year has been full of some amazing adventures! I am so grateful for Marcus he has taught me so much and has helped me grow a ton! I can not believe a whole year has passed! I am so glad we have Eternity because one year is definitely not enough! We have grown so much together I can not wait to see what our little future holds, because in even this short year our plans have changed! :D


 Marcus is all official in his clothes and helmet!
 His pants are a little on the short side

 Poor guy was so tired
 His head with his helmet on touches our roof! Can't wear that around ;)
 His boots and helmet

A little BIG news :D

Marucs got certified as a Wildland Firefighter on Monday Feb 27, he graduated as the Valedictorian in his class! This Wednesday March 7 he got a call saying he was accepted at Lone Peak Fire Crew as a Fire Technician one for a Dromedary Crew Position, basically he is a fuels and fire prevention assignment. He will start there on April 30. He still has lots of schooling to go but this is a big step into his future career! I am so proud and excited for him! I will need lots to do this summer where he could be gone for days at a time! This is a fun little achievement and I had to brag a little about my husband!

Marcus and our puppy Cinder! He is obsessed with this dog! It lives at my parents for now but Marcus loves to take it for a run! He has never had a dog before so this is a first experience for him! She even got a present for Christmas!

Rock Climbing! :D

 Me trying to make it up!
Marcus tearing it up in the slots! :D
We decided to go rock climbing with some of our friends! We had a ton of fun and both decided we could really get into rock climbing!


Grandpas Birthday Bash!

My grandpa turned 90! We had a huge get together for him! He is one AMAZING GUY! He up keeps two huge gardens every summer, cares for pigs, cows, and chickens, gathers eggs, and much more and is still going strong! I can't think of a better example of hard work and the importance of it in ones life!

Our FIRST little Christmas!

 All through Church Marcus could not wait! "can we open them yet?? no more pictures!"
 SURPRISE! Since I made Marcus sale our loving Lupita (Bug) I decided this Christmas I would get him a new car to work on! It will truly be a 20+ yr project but I couldn't resist!

 Marcus surprised me with a new tablet! I love it! He is to good to me!
This was our first little Christmas together! I couldn't have imagined a better one! I was so surprised by all that Santa had found and brought for us!


We couldn't resist getting my dad a new pair of bib overalls for Christmas this year! Marcus insisted on trying them on and seeing what they were like, he actually kind of liked them and may become a wearer of them when he is old ;)

Temple Square!

We went to Temple Square with my family! It was gorgeous this year!We were also really cold! Right before this Marcus decided to get a hole in the rear of his pants so we had to have Shantel mend them good thing she could! :D

Dance/ Movie :D

There was a dance at UVU we got free tickets so we decided to go. Marcus got bored real quick so we left pretty early but we got all dressed up so we decided to go to the $3 movie of Lion King in 3D!
