thanksgiving is for turkeys

oh thanksgiving break, you wonderful thing.
we had a lovely week full of family, food and fun.
since Andre had to work most of the break, the Kaisers decided to bring the party to us. We had lots of fun adventures and loved hosting our first Thanksgiving together! We managed to cook everything in our small, one-oven kitchen and didn't even burn the house down! Some highlights:
exploring Park City
a dream come true--sitting in an Olympic bobsled (replica). Andre is going to have to subdue my new desire to train for the next Olympics
BYU basketball game!
lots and lots of games and treats
delicious turkey
lights at Temple Square
visiting the Draper Temple
and we even celebrated an early Christmas!

4 pictures for 4 months

It has been four wonderful months since the most perfect day in July. We just got our wedding pictures back and couldn't be happier.
We celebrated with early morning pancakes before work and assembling our new vaccuum tonight.
life is just great.

alive.



Don't worry folks, we are alive. The last few weeks have brought sickness (my first sick day in years), lot of work and homework for André and lots and lots of work for me. This week was our biggest conference of the year with most of our biggest donors on campus and I found myself working 15 hour days nearly every day. Poor André was forced to do his stats homework and eat frozen pizza all by himself. It was a good experience and I learned a lot, but I couldn't help but be glad this happens just once a year.
We are excited to have (most of) our evenings back together.
But not to worry, we have done some fun things in the last little bit:
 went to a taping of the BYU football pre-game show and watched the game on the big screen
dressed up as the Incredibles for Halloween for our rocking ward party. I even made these owl cupcakes from Pinterest and they were a big hit.

Had a cider and games night with some friends. We ate way too much sugar and had too much fun.

Snow is falling in the mountains and André's midterms are picking up. We sure are excited for the rest of fall and holidays with our families!
