The Summer

Our sister in law Aly took our photos over the summer and they look great. Thanks so much Aly! I really like this one.

"This picture is so important because this is where I was born." - Stephen referring the picture above that was taken in the city of his birthplace - Newport Beach. "You just wouldn't understand."

So here are some pictures from our last couple of trips we have been on with friends - The first ones are from our trip with the DeRosa's to their aunt's home up in Preston, Idaho. And the after those are from our trip with the Majors to Portland, Oregon. Maybe Brooke will explain these trips more in detail, but until then here are the pictures!

Halloween and Scott

I wanted to post pictures from Halloween. These are pictures off of my phone of the pumpkins we carved. Brooke's - Frankenstein, Matt's - funny face, and Steve's - haunted house. I wish I had some pictures from the party we had the night before Halloween. The Lewis' and us hosted and their cousins and Bruce and Jill were there. The guys had a splash tourtement and I'm not sure what the girls did; but it was way fun.

Also SCOTT is back from Hungary! NANANANANANANANA!

So just yesterday, Brooke and I went and bought some fish for our fish tank we just had set up; and Brian and Lisa came along. We ended up buying 3 Mollies to start off with, and they are so cool. They are kind of hard to see in the pictures but, we have 3: 1 black, 1 dalmatian, and one yellow belly molly. There names are "Black Jack, Sawyer, and Kate."

Here are some pictures of our fish tank (the actual tank - The NANO Cube , and some of the big rocks were inherited from my brother Ryan).

Here is video...

So we named them with a "LOST" theme since we have been watching it recently and we really like it; we are also going to add 2 more fish in a week, and at least one of them will be called "Murray" (the manager from Flight of the Conchords). We have been trying to convince our friends, the Lewis' and the Hansen's to get into LOST, but only the Lewis' have taken the challenge so far!

As for Brooke, she has been working full time for a company that does research on drugs for pharmaceutical companies. She really enjoys it; but she does not enjoy the commute. As for me, I am going to school full time for the Spring and will be doing a little selling on eBay on the side. We have been married for 5 months now, and we have been having so much fun together. We have been playing a lot of games lately together, and with our friends, and we really enjoy splash, mexican train, and Brooke loves this game called "nerts" (she always kills me at it).

Well that is the update for now!
