Last year around Christmas time we were a little busy getting married, so we never got a Christmas tree. This year we had our "first" tree. We covered it with simple ornaments and enjoyed having it for a couple of weeks.
Christmas morning we spent with the Ortons. We enjoyed a delicious breakfast and opening lots of presents with the family. Santa brought us a sweet video camera! Spencer said we weren't getting gifts for each other this year to save money.
But Spence surprised me with my first sewing machine.
After Christmas Spencer got his (recently added 5th) wisdom tooth removed.
Spencer's Grandpa passed away over the break. We attended his funeral on the 30th. He was in the Air Force so the military part of the funeral with the bugle and the folding of the flag was very interesting. His medical school friend, Elder Russell M. Nelson, also attended the funeral and gave the closing remarks. He left a beautiful blessing on the family and spoke of how loved ones that have passed are still very much a part of our lives.
Don't mind the massive white streak I have going on right now. Spencer says I should continue to grow it out and go for the Rouge look. I think that is his way of saying he doesn't want me to pay for a cut and color. My hair might be the first thing of 2010 that I change.
2009 has been a great year for us. We have learned a lot about eachother and a lot about marriage. We are both excited for 2010 and the adventures that it will bring.
