weird. 21??

i really can't believe it's a new year and according to brian i am like a real adult now!
i started out the year beginning my externship at a family practice called center for family health. i'm learning but it is really hard to get motivated to get my butt to go when i'm not getting paid for it and the major reason being that the doctor that i mainly work with is, lets just say, not a very nice person. and i'm not the only person that thinks this i have found out, which makes me feel much better. i truly avoid her at all costs and hope that when i do have to converse with her i don't feel like crying like a baby after the fact. on the other hand.. everyone, not sure about that specific doctor, including the patients love me and think i'm so nice and efficient! i'm about one third done so i am really looking forward to when the end is in a little more clear of a sight....that will be a great day!
i like to say that i am looking forward to being done with this externship and these last couple classes, that i also just started, but truly i feel weird. like the end to this period of school for me came too fast or something.
this year also brought on a super sucky schedule for brian. well, he likes it a lot! but with my schedule i'm definitely not a fan :( he works friday-monday 2pm-midnight. and mon-fri for me are very full/long days of being at the doctors, working, and/or classes. all i can think about is summer and how awesome it will be! [but, if anyone needs a new best friend on the weekends...]
luckily this past week i got the day off for my birthday! our plan was disneyland but i was so sore and exhausted from the day before i ended up sleeping in a little too late to make the trip worth it. which i was fine with because we still had a great day together! dinner at bj's was delicious and the sunset/dessert at seaport village were perfect! and just spending the whole day with my favorite person in the whole world made everything even more perfect!

a little late maybe..?

there is so much to catch up on i'm not sure where to start.

tahoe was a great little get away trip for us. it was very blizzardy but still fun and relaxing. what made it even more awesome was that we didn't have to pay for a hotel or food thanks to katie's mom. she loved having a full house and cooking EVERY meal for us! it was great!

the snow was up to my waist here! but completely beautiful and reminded me of rexburg :)

snowboarding at squaw valley. fun! but not in two feet of powder and blizzard conditions.

just before the nine hour drive back home :(

the rest of december brought lots of family, food, and everything christmas :) brian's cousins had a girls christmas party/sock exchange that stacie and i went to together. it's great having more cousins you're age and older!

my beautiful new cousins

christmas socks!

christmas eve/my mom's birthday was spent with my family at joe and becky's house. the night was full of crazy kids all excited for christmas, yummy food, white elephant game, cousin gift exchanges, and (my favorite) costco birthday cake for my mom and millie. yum!

wow a family picture.. this doesn't happen often but i insisted.

christmas babies!

we spent christmas night with the schimpf side and it was so warm and christmasy with very yummy food and lovely company.
and the hutchings side the day after christmas.
needless to say we stayed very busy with all the large family festivities!
our first christmas together felt so good and made me so thankful for our loving savior that has made it possible for brian and i to be together for eternity. sometimes i'm not sure what it is that makes me deserve everything that i am blessed with. but i do know that i our heavenly father loves us always and has a specific plan for each of us! and i couldn't be any more grateful for this gospel, the christmas season and what it brings to people, and my amazing husband!
