it's been a while

Wow it's been a while! Things have been pretty busy in our lives. We finished our first semester at BYU-I in December and we loved it! We are really liking it here. We are in a fabulous ward, have great friends, and live right next to the temple! The semester ended well-we both got a's in our classes, Eric got a scholarship because he is a genius (thanks BYU-I for the $1,000 smackers in our bank account :) After we finished our finals we drove down to American Fork to spend a few days with the Olson crew. We had so much fun with them! We love it when we get to visit. We had a certificate to the anniversary inn for a free night stay in ANY room so on the way to idaho we stopped in salt lake and used our pass. We stayed in a $350 dollar room and it was completely FREE!!! It was a gorgeous room with a view of salt lake and it came with free snacks :) it was really fun. We spent the rest of christmas break with my family. We went skiing a few times and just relaxed and prepared ourselves for the upcoming semester. Our car was loaded down when we were driving back to Rexburg. (Thanks moms and dads for a GREAT christmas) We started school on January 5 and have been studying away since. We did get to go to our friends, Skye and Flechers, sealing and reception last weekend-which was beautiful. School has been going really well-we are both busy and working hard but we are loving our classes. Some great news, i just got a part time job. We have been looking since the beginning of last semester and it has been a difficult run. We are both grateful that we will be having an income again. Other than these catch up things we haven't done much. We can't believe 8 months of marriage is behind us! We both agree that they have been the best 8 months of our lives and we are looking forward to eternity.
