An update on the Edwards'!

I started our blog with the full intention of updating at least every week!! But, as you can see...I'm a huge slacker!! I'll blame it on the fact that we don't have the internet at out apartment!

So here is what's been going on with us...

Conner got a job at Macey's grocery store, and he claims that he does like it! I sure hope so! I'm just so lucky to have such a good husband who will work 8 hours a day at a grocery store to support us! He really is such a hard worker and I'm very grateful for that!! I have yet to get a picture of him with his apron and name tag, but I will some day! As for now I just have been modeling at home before he left to work.

Our family had been waiting for an entire year to go and watch Celine Dion. A week before everyone was told the bad news!! She moved it to Feb! But we didn't let that ruin our fun. Conner and I drove down to Salt Lake to spend the weekend with my parents and Karson and Linzy. Conner, Kars, Linz, and myself walked around the gateway and ate at Sky Box. My parents were at my dad's company party where we stayed at the Little Grand Hotel, so after we finished eating we spent the rest of the night with them at the party. It was pretty fun!

Saturday we headed down to Nephi and had a little party for the BYU vs. Utah game, it was a sad game, but it was still really fun to be with everyone.

Thanksgiving was pretty an eventful weekend. It was great to be home and out of school. Wed night and Thursday morning I got pretty sick and went in to the hopsital Thursday and found out I had a pretty bad UTI. So the whole weekend I had an IV in my arm and had to keep going to the hospital for antibiotics. It wasn't very fun, but at least I was still able to have a good thanksgiving dinner with the family! :)
Conner had a pretty fun weekend. He was invited a couple months ago to go with his cousins to Mesquite for a flag football tournament. He went down Friday afternoon and came back late last night. It was a quick trip but well worth it, his team was the champions! Conner had a really fun weekend being with all of his cousins. The only problem is he came home with scratches and bruises and claiming he is the sorest he has ever been! Poor boy! I was really sad I wasn't able to go and spend time with his family, but hopefully they understand! I never knew I could miss Conner so much in just a days worth of time! When he left I got tears in my eyes! I was so sad to be away from him! Very pathetic I know!!! I was really happy when he woke me up last night to his arrival!! ( Sorry I don't have any more pictures!)

We have one more week until finals and we can not wait to finally be done with the semester and enjoy Christmas break!! We are going to Seattle for the month and we are so excited....but until then wish us luck on finals!! :)

Migrant Farm Workers

This weekend the family all got together to harvest potatoes! Oh what a joy that always is! Whenever we have our entire family together it is always a blast, even if we are working on potatoes. It was both Conner and Linzy's first year, some how Launey has been in the family for six years and he has never been sucked into it! Conner was a very hard worker as always, but it seemed like almost every time I would glance over at him he would be juggling potatoes, seeing how far he could throw them, or else playing his own version of basketball and trying to throw the potatoes in the buckets! He is just like a little kid! :)
It may not be the best way to spend your Saturday afternoon but I know it makes us all feel good knowing how much we are really helping out my grandpa. If it wasn't for our help he would have to do everything all by himself which would take him hours upon hours! Even if we were covered in dirt head to toe it still ended up being a very fun afternoon, although I'm not sure I'm able to bend down anymore for awhile! I'm giving that a break!

HaPPy hAuNTinG!

Halloween was so much fun this year for Conner and I. We hung out with our awesome friends, Trevor and Jenny, all day!
We made chili, corn bread, caramel popcorn, and pumpkin bars. It seemed like a pretty good fall/Halloween dinner, and better yet it was all very yummy! After we ate dinner we all carved pumpkins which was very fun to see all of our interesting ideas. Jenny definitely got the award for cutest pumpkin, Conner's pumpkin..well no comment, my pumpkin was a boring STAR! I have no idea why I carved a star....and Trevor's pumpkin looked like Swiss cheese! haha it was funny!
Jenny and I decided to buck up and go to a haunted "trail". It ended up being very fun but boy were we scared! It was probably one of the scariest haunted things I've been through! I tried snuggling close to Conner, but when we were lead into a corn field and had a car chase us, followed by two "headless horsemen" Conner then pushed me aside and took of dead sprint yelling "COME ON KYLEE! RUN!!" haha! I could not believe he took of like that and left me! It was pretty funny! I think I will never stop bugging him about it!
After the haunted river trail we rented a scary movie and ate pumpkin bars. We had a great night with Trevor and Jenny and can't wait for the upcoming holidays that Jenny and I have already planned events for! ;)...yeah...we're nuts!

Sun Valley Fun!

This last weekend Conner and I were able to finally get away together and RELAX! It was something we hadn't done for a long time! His grandpa owns a condo in Sun Valley, Idaho so we got lucky and were able to escape for the weekend! It was only about a four hour drive from Logan which wasn't bad at all! We wish we could've stayed a bit longer, but with school and all we had to make it a very quick trip. We had so much fun being there and especially being together! Conner was so good to me and spoiled me like crazy! He is such a sweetie! Thanks babe for the amazing weekend together! :)

Emerald City Extravaganza

When we were in Washington for our reception, I mentioned before that my parents and grandparents were also going to be there. Well, I finally got some fun pictures of us in Washington. The first few pictures are at Conner's house. He has such a gorgeous house with an AMAZING view of the Puget Sound. Saturday morning we woke up bright and early to get some last minute jobs done so everything was perfect for the open house. My dad's job was to trim the shrubs and he was so proud of his work the rest of the night. He should consider that as another side job! ;) We were so lucky to have had such a pretty day!

On Sunday after church we took my family and headed up to downtown Seattle. We were able to eat at my favorite Mexican restaurant, go to the space needle, and then walk around Pikes Place Market. All together it was a very fun weekend! Conner's family pulled off a beautiful open house, and it was also so great to have my family there with me for the first time. :) Now all I want is to have my siblings go this summer for a family vacation! You guys are still for it...right?!
