Gingerbread house

We made our first gingerbread house this year and we had Amy's brother Phillip over to help. So we didn't exactly make the gingerbread from scratch (thank you costco) but who does that anyways! It was such a fun night, sitting at the table listening to christmas music drinking hot chocolate with peppermint making a gingerbread house with christmas lights on in the house. Such a perfect evening and great company!!

Thanksgiving times 2!!

Because all of our family lives so close, we were able to have 2 thanksgiving meals! We had breakfast and lunch at Amy's parents house and then went over and had dinner at Nathan's parent's house. We both had to try and limit ourselves at both places, but only partly succeeded as there was way too much good food. During this time of thanks, we are both so thankful for having our families so close to us. There are many people that don't have anyone close by, so we count ourselves as lucky! We are also both so thankful to our Father in Heaven for allowing us to find each other and for the many fun and exciting experiences we have already had together. We can't wait for many, many more to come!

Nathan and I were able to go to my brother Phillip's football game today (Meadowdale High School in Lynnwood), and what a great game it was!! It was one of the games for the State Playoffs. We both think it was one of the best football games we have been to in a long time, if not ever! They won 20-19, after getting a touchdown in the last 3 minutes and having a very important interception when the other team was on the 5 yard line keeping them from a field goal attempt. Phillip had some great tackles that kept the offenders from getting into the endzone.

They will be playing next friday at 7 pm at the edmonds stadium. Come and watch, it should be a great game!

Happy Halloween!!

We had so much fun on our first Halloween together! I came up with the most brilliant idea to be Wilma and Fred Flintstone. My mother-in-law and I made my costume, (mostly her) and I bought Nathan's. We were able to go to 3 parties and our church's trunk-or-treat. The cute prehistoric couple.
Look at those big muscles!!
Always a sassy redhead!

Hope your Halloween was as fun as ours was!!

Pumpkin Carving!

We had our friend Chris and Allison Nelson come over tonight to carve pumpkins. We had such a great time that we didn't take any pictures of us, just the carved pumpkins. Here are the pics of our pumpkins photo shoot!
In Order of Pumpkins:

And then we turned off all the lights, Allison and Amy held up a blanket in front of the fire so we could get this cool picture of all the pumpkins lit up!

Introducing..............The Oppie's!!

I decided it was high time we got a blog to keep everyone updated on what we are up to!

On May 12th 2007, we were married in the Seattle temple for time and all eternity! We were so lucky to have close family and friends with us to share in this wonderful experience!

We went to Vegas on our honeymoon and then move into Nathan's very small apartment for 3 months. About 2 months ago we moved into our new apartment, nearly double the square footage and we are loving it!

We will keep you all updated here so come back from time to time and see what exciting adventure we have taken!
