We are officially done with this semester, and too many more to go! This semester actually flew by we can't believe it. Since we both got done with school, we decided to celebrate and go skiing at The Canyons. It was a good day to get back into the grove, but don't worry Chase still can't beat me down the hill! There was only a couple runs open, but that was fine with us we had a great time. Since we are going out of town for Christmas we decided to get a fake tree. (This is my first fake tree) I do have to say though, I really like it. The DI always comes through for you. This little tree does fit the house nice! We can't wait to go to Denver for Christmas and hang out with the Fam and see more Christmas lights!

Thanksgiving Week!


Where do we even start?! Thanksgiving break was so much fun, and definitely time we needed off from school! To start the break off going to Disneyland with the whole family was so fun! We can't believe that the drive from St. George to California is almost shorter than Logan to St. George! At Disneyland we couldn't get enough of the little kids loving/hating the rides! You would think that two solid days would be enough at the magic kingdom to get most everything done, but in those two days we only touched the tip of the iceberg! We were so busy the whole time, but when we were leaving we thought of so many more things we could have done! Harry and Kathy are the best for putting the whole trip together and making it a trip that we will never forget!!
Chase and I wanted to make the kids shirts for Disneyland, and when we got there it turned out to be really cool because we could spot them in a crowd of people!

The kids loved the parade! (and so did we) They would wave to all the characters that passed by and get extra excited if they waved back!

We already miss Disneyland and want to return soon! It really is the only place you can go and forget all your worries and have a great time! During thanksgiving week it was so fun to just relax and hang out with everyone! We were happy that Justin made it into town to join us!! Thanksgiving Dinner was amazing and we really didn't get sick of left overs it was so good!

We had so much fun hanging out with the Marsh/Tolberts as well! Who else would spend over four hours shooting! For the record I still have a bruise on my arm from shooting for so long! The next day was also fun going golfing with Trev, Tehmi, Micall, and TJ. I don't think we lost too many balls!
We can't wait to see everyone again soon!! And hope you have a Merry Christmas!!

Thank you so much Harry and Kathy for making this Thanksgiving break so much fun!! I hope that we didn't cause too much trouble while we were down there! We really appreciate all that you guys do for us! Love you!

Football and Carving

This last weekend Chase and I went to the USU vs. Fresno football game. The weather was so nice and Chase even got a tan during the game. Unfortunately the team lost in the last 2 seconds of the game from a 58 yard field goal! The Aggies played well though and it was definitely a fun game to go to!

We also had a really fun time with Swede and Shayla carving pumpkins! They turned out great and we are hoping that some brave trick-or-treater will come down our drive way on halloween to see them all lite up! We can not believe how fast this month has gone and that it will be November in less than one week!!.............. Sorry Swede and Shayla but we like our pumpkins the best!! (jk)

Chase is starting his own tradition because for the last two years he has only carved "Jack" and from now on he said that will be his signature carving. (even though we have never seen the movie Nightmare before Christmas!)

HUGE Pumpkins & SNOW!!

We can't believe it but its true, it has been snowing all weekend! We love it, but it feels like fall was only a week long. We hope that it keeps snowing so we can go skiing soon! We definitely had to get our winter clothes out and wear wool sock this weekend, but its nice and cozy in the cabin!

We were on our way to Salt Lake when we saw the biggest pumpkins of our lives!! We HAD to stop and get some blog worthy pictures! These suckers were over 1000lbs!! We couldn't believe it, and had to get proof of the monsters!

This seems like an annual event so maybe we will have to make a special trip back next year! We did have a couple questions... how are they going to carve those things? and how many batches of pumpkin seed could they make?! We had a fun day in Salt lake and can't wait for Chase to try out his new Skis!!!

Park City

A few weekends ago we took a little drive to Park City with Trev, Tehmi, and Stella. It was a quick trip but still really fun!

The Marsh Clan

This was about a month ago when the Marsh Fam made the trip up to Logan for a soccer game. We all had a good time together and it was really fun to hang out.

Fall is here!

It's definitely fall here! The weather has been so nice and it also gets a lot cooler at night which means... SKI season is coming!! We really can't wait to head up to beaver mountain and hit the slopes! Chase has been jealous of his friends in St. George because they have been sending him pictures of deer they've shot. I think this has been the hardest fall for him without hunting yet!... What is he going to do when we get to Portland?! Anyway, we are loving it here in Logan and trying to soak it all in. We can't believe that it is basically October and DISNEYLAND is around the Corner! We miss everyone so much and are so excited to be reunited again!

The squirrels!

Every morning at the same time we have little "barking" squirrels waking us up and running across the roof. Today we were watching a show called "Verminaters" and it showed an infestation in someone's attic... Chase did not like the idea of that so he went outside and did what he had to do to the poor squirrel! (but I am happy that there is one less!!) Hopefully they won't be around too much longer with winter coming!

We got SKUNKED!!

That's right we got skunked! We were so excited to go fishing this last weekend, and the fish totally let us down!! But we still had a really fun time anyway! It was fun to get out and not worry about school or soccer. We want to go again soon and maybe next time we will have some more luck!

My first Police incident published!!!!

So i am proud to say that i made the paper this week!!... Just about a week ago I ACCIDENTALLY hit a parking sign on my way to soccer practice, and I couldn't be late to soccer, so drove off and went to practice. I told Chase about what happened and he joked and said i would be in the Police Blotter.... and what do you know.... I am FAMOUS!!!
here is the school paper from today (September 8, 2008). Just so you know my car is fine just a little scratch!

The First Day of School

So it begins! The first day of school! We can't believe that summer is already over and the school year is in full swing! We both have a lot of work to do in our classes, so I am happy that Chase will keep me focused on passing my classes. The passed few days have been really hot here, but it definately cools down fast at night! This means less bugs Ya!! And just for Garrison we have seen some really cool bugs and the crickets are REALLY loud at night!

Soccer game & Deer sighting

The soccer team had a game in Pocatello ID this weekend. This is Alex checking into the game. They lost in double OT, but it was still a fun game to watch! On our way home we saw a couple nice bucks! Can't wait to come home for the hunt!

Alex "Fish Lips" Marsh Gentry

This is one of my favorite photos of Alex so I couldn't resist putting it on our blog!!!

Chase was hoping to see some good wildlife on our hike (he has hunting fever!!), but unfortunately this butterfly was about the only animal we were interested in!! It was pretty but not excatly what we hoped for. We love the weather in Logan and we are excited for our round of golf tomorrow.
Last weekend we decided to get outside for a little bit, so we went on a hike around Tony Grove Lake. We went off the path to get above the lake and even though we like the pictures we did NOT like all the sticker-burs everywhere!! It was really fun to take a break from soccer and have some fun together!

Waiting For Ski Season!!

The weather is starting to cool off up here and we are getting excited for ski season! (We still have a while until the snow falls) This was last season on the day that we got engaged.

Inside the Love Shack

Finally the inside view! Not much room but we made it work. It took a lot of moving furniture around to finally get it all to fit, but we did it!! We were worried when we first moved in that we made a bad decision about the shack, but once we were all unpacked we have cahnged our minds!!
This is the park that is around us! Our house is in the middle of the clump of trees! There is a down side of having the shack surrounded by trees and that is... bugs! Fortunately Chase does a great job of taking care of them!!
We are finally in Logan and moved into our "Love Shack." This picture basically shows it all! We love our little place and can't wait for everyone to come and visit! (But not all at once we don't have enough room!) The trees around us are awesome they shade us all day long and keep it quiet!

This was a really cool area that we were working in over the summer. All of the houses were on the shoreline of the lake, it was a nice neighborhood. We decided to take a little break and enjoy the sunset.

Finally in Logan after an eventful summer!!!

This was in Mazatlan on our cruise. That week went by too fast!!! We had a great time and ate all day and night. It was awesome!
