July is bursting with news

So I haven't done a book review for a long while, but that doesn't mean that I haven't read. There are a lot of good books that I have read. Maze Runner, The Looking Glass Wars and Raised By Wolves just to name a few. I highly recommend them. July has started and so has the second year of our marriage. Sometimes it feels like it has been long- in a good way. Sometimes it seems like we just begun. We were able to spend the third of July up Provo canyon with Cory's grandparents. It was a lot of fun. We saw a lot of rafts coming down on the water and it looked so fun. Maybe next time. Does it seem like time is flying? It does for us. We started back at the drive in, but luckily we have enough awesome people to make it so we don't have to be there every Friday and Saturday night. We are pretty excited about the movies we have seen so far- A Team, Karate Kid, Prince of Perisa, Iron Man 2, Toy Story 3, and Eclipse. All well worth the price of the ticket to see them, only we didn't have to pay as we work for the theater. Allergy season is well in force. I am having a hard time getting up in the mornings because of them. So is Cory. I started taking some Claritin D, so I will stop being so congested. Only that makes me so groggy. So I only use it when I have to. All in all though, we are doing pretty good. Just busy like always!

Bringing in the Spring

Well, spring is in. We got to spend time with Cory's friends in Orem and also with his family. His sister, Joni, came down from Washington with her kids and spent about a week with us. We had a lot of fun and wished that they could have stayed longer. I have started getting things for the Drive In ready. This is the fifth summer that I will have worked for the Drive In and I love it. So I have been busy making up time sheets, and manuals. I am waiting to go in the drive in and get the painting finished with some other projects that I want to start. I also have been trying to talk my senior candy girls into working this summer. Some are not buying it. Cory is again working as a tour guide, but just on the weekends when they really need him. He got the sprinkling system set up around our yard so we only have to move two hoses when we want to mow the lawn. We are talking about a garden, but haven't done anything yet. So we better get going on it if we want one. I finally got my spare room organized. It is so nice to be able to walk in there and find things. We have some good movie experiences. I think our spring favorite movie was 'How to train you Dragon'. We loved it. It was a great family show. Spring has also brought us some alleregies. Even Cory has had some. It is driving him crazy. We have started getting up at four am. We feel more awake then at five. Don't ask, it is a mystery to us too. We are watching the Final season of Lost. And I have to say that I really do feel Lost most of the tme. Just when one thread is tied up, two or three new ones start. Also Dr. Rush is back on Destiny. And everyone is giving Col. Young a hard time about it. If only they knew the truth. I also called the Doctor being preggie, and I was right! Oh, I am talking about Stargate Universe. It is more like the battlestar Galatica then the previous Stargates. We are still out on weather we like it or not. It's kind of like a car crash, you can't help but look. Well that is about all the news I have to share, love you and be safe!

Winter Update

Okay, so I said that I would write book reviews when I got finished reading them. Since my last post, I have read over ten different books. I am currently finishing book 2 of the 100 Cupboards series by N.D. Wilson. It is great read so far and I just found out that book 3 was just released in January. As this is an update, I am going to let you know what has happened these last few months.
In October we had a Halloween party. It was really fun to have family and friends over. We mixed potion drinks, watched movies, and carved pumpkins. At the end of the month I got my 30th Birthday present. Cory took me out to eat and have a fun weekend. Cory's grandma Bullock was rushed to the hospital and we spent a lot of time there. But we couldn't stay at the hospital, so in between visits we went and saw some movies and did some shopping.
Grandma Bullock passed away in early November. It was bittersweet because we got to see Cory's parents and brother, but we lost her. It was a really nice funeral with Cory's dad giving a talk and Cory's mom singing a song at the services.
The week after the funeral, we got down to cutting wood. We had not really started because it seemed that every weekend in October was full. We cut for about fifteen minutes before we realised that we needed a new chain. So we went to the store. As we left the store, it started to snow. So we called in back up to help. Christian and JR came to our rescue(bribe-movie tickets) About thirty minutes after we finished, the snow stopped. New Moon opened on the 21st and I got to be the projectionist for all the extra shows we ran. It was a lot of fun and the movie was really good. I did all our Christmas shopping on line and got some good deals.
In December, Cory was really busy with FedEx. He usually didn't get home until 7pm. For our Christmas present we decided to get a wii and a couple of games. We really like it. Cory's parents had to come up to help divide Grandma Bullock's Estate. So we got to see them again. It was great Christmas. We got to see Sherlock Holmes and Avatar(3 times) We loved the shows.
In January, we worked and played. I gave Cory his new year's resolution. He needs to buy me a gift every month. I thought it was a great one. He bought me pearls and a teddy bear for January. We started two projects. One for each of us. Cory is cataloging the DVDs and I am going through cookbook. Cory is up to the I's and I have gone through every cookbook and marked the recipes I want to try. I have now completed 5 cookbooks and have about 10 to go. We are trying to eat a little healthier and exercise more. We have found that you can play the xbox 360 while walking on the tread mill. Cory didn't even notice he had been walking for an hour and a half until the machine shut off. He can also work on wii fit and I can walk and watch him. I also got to watch at the theaters-The Blindside, Extraorindary Measures, and Alvin and The Chipmunks 2 in January. They were great movies.
In February, we are excited to celebrate Valentine's day. Also to see the Percy Jackson Movie.
We are doing good. We love you. We'll keep you posted!
