We figured that it was about time we put up a few pictures of our place. It's still not all finished, but it's starting to look a whole lot more like home, so here's what we have so far:

The office and Tyler's massive computer set up... I'm sure you can tell it's still a work in progress.

My washing machine. I don't have a picture of the dryer, sorry!

The bed. Just got it last week.

Our kitchen:

Our entry way:

The couch (2/3 of it anyway! The rest was too big to fit up the stairs, so we're having it delivered in two parts):

As you can tell, we need drapes in the living room!

There we go! I'll have to post more as we finish it. I hope everyone has a wonderful Christmas!

Hectic Holidays

Sorry it's been such a long time since our last post. Things have been so crazy the past few weeks it's hard to know where to begin.

After Thanksgiving, Tyler and I went up to Midway for a quiet weekend alone at his family condo. We went up Friday night and had an enjoyably quiet evening. The next morning, I was cooking breakfast when Tyler got a phonecall that neither of us will ever forget.

It was Jordan Buttars, our brother-in-law Brian's younger brother. He told Tyler that Brian had been in a terrible motocross accident, and that they were going to life-flight him to the hospital, but that it already looked like he hadn't made it.

The minutes after seemed like hours as Tyler made the phone call to his family, including Brian's wife, Collette.

Since then, the family has been mourning the loss of Brian. He died at the young age of 31, leaving behind two children, Cole 3, and Hallie 2 and a wife that was 8 months pregnant.

It's been a sombering experience for everyone, but the beautiful thing about it is that it's really pulled the family together.

Collette and her two little ones (well, I guess three as of yesterday!) moved into Tyler's parents house about a week before we moved out. Her 3-year-old, Cole, would climb into bed with us early in the morning and chatter away. He's such a little stud!

Last Monday we moved into our condo. That same night, Tyler and a couple of his brothers were fortunate enough to take little Cole to the Jazz game, where he got to meet some members of the team.

It's been so nice to have our own place! We've gotten our couch (well, part of it), kitchen table, bed set, and washer & dryer within a week of moving in. We are definitely blessed to be able to have such a nice little place so early in our marriage.

Anyway, so that's the update. Hopefully I'll blog before Christmas, but if I don't, Happy Holidays!
