Santa 2011

Here are our Santa pictures for this year. Jessica is looking forward to Christmas. I think she will be into a bit more than last year. She just stares at the tree and has pulled some of the ornaments off. I just put some presents under the tree from family and she has been good so far. She did pick up one and when I told her that wasn't for her she put it back. I'm excited to see her on Christmas day! Merry Christmas and Happy New Year! Happy 2012!

Walt Disney World 2011

We got to go to Disney World with Grandpa Luellen! We had a great time visiting with him and seeing all the sights.
Kissing our little princess!
Jessica loved Mickey and Minnie!
Minnie is her new best friend!
Loved that Disney World was all decorated for Christmas! It truly was amazing! It even snowed for the Christmas shows and parades. This is just a brief view of our trip. Fun was had by all!

So before leaving I had one request! Could we go to Forks! When I moved to Texas and people learned I was from Washington that was usually one of the first question had I ever been to Forks! Well I can now say that I have! Not really much to see there! The movies not even filmed there. We bought the token Twilight shirt that says Forks, Washington! Had to get one for Jess! Had a great time with family! I will have to find the picture of me in front of the Fork, WA sign.

So there is a burger place that we were told we needed to check out. Meers ( I'll let you read the history but it's pretty cool!
The burger is huge! They make homemade ice cream and cobblers! Yummy! I'm not to sure this place is going to be so great for my waistline. I will explain the slab of meat so when you order a steak here they bring out the steak and you tell show them how big of piece you want and then you get to cut it. We will have to try this next time. They also have fried corn on the cob! Which way really good too! Bubba's Gas just the gas station you pass on the way to the restaurant. Just thought it was kind of funny!

Our move!

So we are now in Lawton, Oklahoma! Here just a few of the pictures we have taken so far! Just to give you a little information about where we live. On the way coming and going to our house we pass a field full of cows! And behind our house is another field that has sheep in it and wind mills. It is so quiet! There is a lake about 5 minutes from our house. The wildlife refuge is about 10 minutes from our house. The sunsets are amazing! The last one is of our neighborhood at sunset. We try walking every night around the neighborhood. People are so friendly here. Our first Sunday at church the E.Q. president and his wife came over with a plate of cookies that night! Amazing can't say that ever happened in Lakewood. One of the Docs that use to be in Ft. Lewis ward dad lives in our ward so that is a fun connection. Enough about my new ward for now.
We live somewhat close to what they call mountains here. We call them hills!

Multnomah Falls 1-2-2011

As Ralph travels to our new duty station in the car we are spending a couple of days with my family in Oregon. We always talk about going to the falls but haven't ever done it until this visit. It was super cold and windy but amazingly breath taking! Quite literally!
