Thanksgiving in Texas "Yee haw"

What better thing to do after a big Thanksgiving Feast than update your blog with pictures of the two things I'm most grateful for. I even included a live video of Mylee enjoying her mash potatoes and corn.

I love my Mac

              
                   Birthday Lunch at Kona Grill, yum yum                          

So for my birthday this year we went shopping for a new computer and we decided to become Macbookers.  Can I just tell   you  that so far I've absolutely Loved it.  I strongly suggest for everyone to turn away from the dark side of pcs and discover the true power of "The Force", Mac. I've been editing photos and making movies and just having a blast.  Anyway let me know if I haven't convinced you yet.  
San Antonio has been all right so far. It would be tons better if I actually had a car during the day to go on more adventures, but for now we just try to be creative here in our little apartment complex.  I do have to say they have some pretty cool features  which make it a little easier.  We went to church and met our new ward and I have to say I was very impressed.  Everyone was very friendly and sweet.  Mylee and I were even invited to a play date yesterday. She was so excited to play with other kids and I was grateful for the adult conversation.  Everyone has been so kind to us and I think it's going to be a  fun 6 months.  
Well, Happy Thanksgiving everyone!!!

Playing with new friends



Some of the fun I've had on my Mac

Yes, this is a new post so read it!

Salutations fellow bloggers. The reason I've been MIA is because we took a last minute surprise trip home to Utah to see our families. For the past 6 months we've been traveling around the country for med school and we've really missed seeing our folks. Boy, were they shocked to see Mylee on their front porch. After a really fun week at home it was time to face reality and hit the road once more. Our last stop on this Medical rotation tour is San Antonio, TX, so ya better watch out y'all cause I might turn into a real big hair, buckle wearin' Texas gal, j/k. I'm really excited to visit San Antonio. I've only heard good things about it. So come and visit me and we'll all go to Six Flags and Sea World.
Some fun Family pix:

On a last note, I just want to brag about my beautiful home in Utah. Out of all the places we've visited this year this was still my number one pick. It has the perfect balance of everything beautiful including our beautiful families.

Official Halloween Post



I love Halloween. Why can't we have more holidays where you just walk around your neighborhood and get free candy. This was a special Halloween because we're staying with our friends in Evansville, IN while Austin finishes his rotation. They live in the cutest neighborhood with tons of kids and cute little families, so it was a great place for Mylee to experience her first real Trick of Treating. Austin and I were party poopers this year and didn't actually dress up, but Mylee was seriously the cutest kitty ever. We decided to do a kitty because her friend Hannah was going to be a mouse and we thought the whole cat and mouse theme would be really cute.




Mylee had a blast knocking on the houses and picking out candy to put in her bag. She was doing really good until she realized she could actually eat what was in her bag. That kind of distracted her from the whole Trick or Treating charade, so we headed home to check out the goods.
The next day was the ward Halloween party in Boonville where we enjoyed a fun hayride, fire roasted hot dogs, and homemade chili. It was a really fun party. Well, I think that's long enough. I'm all about more pictures than words. I hope everyone had a safe and Happy Halloween!
