So everybody keeps telling us that our blog is boring and that we need to update it, and Jessica keeps telling me her computer is on the fritz and doesn't have time. So I am doing some updating.

We are finally in our new house. After 7 long months of building and after finishing 7 houses we are moved in and loving it. It is a great feeling to know that we built our first house which we hope to make a great home.

Our new ward welcomed us in great by asking us to talk about the 3rd Sunday of being in the ward and now have given us both callings. I got assigned to the young men’s, and Jessica is a visiting teaching coordinator.

We had a wonderful Christmas break and we were able to spend some great time with family skiing, eating and enjoying great company. We even made it up to my dad's property to cut down our very first Christmas tree.

My brother Ben and his wife Krystal with their 6 month old boy Dayton came to town for the holidays. It was wonderful to see them and get to know Dayton. He has grown a lot in his first 6 months and already has a huge personality. We love them and wish they didn't live in Buffalo. That is really far away.
We have been blessed this last year. Our first year together: we got married, I graduated from college, we both got good secure jobs and we built a house together. We can’t wait to see what the new year has to offer us.

This was our first home together.
