So many things to tell and I am certainly not patient enough to write it all down so you will have to appreciate my synopsis. Well are friends Adam and Fabione Snell came here with there cute baby boy Carter. We did all the parks at Disney World and also went to Universal Studios. Now I suggest to spend at least one Christmas at Disney, I know it is a lot of money and lots of people, but there is nothing like it. They make everything so magical! We went to Universal on Friday but went to the Island of Adventures park. What a blast we had there. The rollercoasters are so much fun, the Dueling Dragons, the Hulk, Jurassic Park and on and on! Christmas Eve we had some friends from work and are ward over for dinner. We sat and told stories, ate lots of food and just had a wonderful time. It was also nice having Carter around for the holiday, he was such a blast. I hope my babies are as good as him. Hano and I were able to babysit him on Saturday while Adam and Fabione went on a date, he is such a cutie. Anyway I will just post lots of pics because they will tell all!!

Well I cannot believe that Hano and I are starting are last month in Florida. Every day that goes bye we get little more sad to leave are new home. We really enjoy living here and Utah will seem so little compared to what we have experienced here. If we could stay here we would. I have seen Hano grow so much intellectually with his business prospective. He has made some fabulous contacts here and I hope that when we decide to settle down they will pay off. Most of all we have learned how much of the world there is to explore, well I have learned. Moving away has put a whole new twist on how we look at life. I hope that we go a lot more places and live in a lot more places. It doesn't matter where we end up as long as we end there together. The six months that Hano and I lived apart were horrible but I have grown to know how much I love just being with him. If you ever get the chance to live somewhere else branch out of your comfort zone and go, it will be the best thing you ever do!!
While we were in Pensacola we took a trip to the beach which was absolutely amazing, I am sure it is because it is the gulf. The sand felt like sand from Mexico and we even saw some jellyfish swimming around. It was pretty cold the day we went so we decided no to get in, plus with the jellyfish so close to shore made me weary of getting in because with my luck I for sure would have been stung. The best was watching Carter. Fabione told us that he loves the birds and every-time he sees one he starts to wave wildly at them. He is just so funny we could not get enough of his cute personality.
Well Thanksgiving was so much fun for us this year. We spent it with are best friends Adam, Fabione, and Carter Snell. They recently moved to Pensacola for Adam's air force training, so we drove up there to spend Thanksgiving with them. The funny thing is I never took pictures of actual Thanksgiving, ha ha ha. I am not known for my great camera skills but I am really trying to get better. It was a blast being with them and Carter has grown up so much, he just had to pull out all the pots and pans from the cupboards it was so funny! Adam and Hano decided to go shopping on black friday and sure enough Hano was able to get an xbox 360 with the assistance of his good friend Adam. We are so lucky to have them as friends and I am so excited that they will be spending Christmas with us as well!
Planet Hollywood is a restaurant at Downtown Disney, it is a lot of fun because they have a live DJ and they play lots of old movie clips and hang movie memorabilia around the whole place. The car in the picture is a picture of the Herbie car. We have a good time when we go there and the food is pretty good.
The Sunday before Thanksgiving my brother in law's little brother flew in from Brazil to do some shopping in Florida so he stayed with us for a couple of days. We had a lot of fun, if any of you have been to the outlet malls here you know what I am talking about. We decided to take him to the show Fantasmic, which also plays in California, it is an amazing show and we had so much fun watching it with Willian. Hano and I love going to the parks especially the fireworks shows.
The weekend just before Thanksgiving Disney got us a room at the Yacht Club Beach Resort. It is such a nice resort and the view from are balcony was so pretty. It looked over into the pools and out to the lake. We had such a good time staying there and I hope we get to do it again before we have to go back to Utah :(
Wow I feel like I have a ton to catch up on. It has been super busy the past couple of weeks, but also tons of fun. First of all we decided to have a pre-Thanksgiving feast with are friends herein Orlando, Dan and Ellie Beckler. We ate good food, played some mario cart on the Wii, and made snowflakes out of construction paper. At first it was just Ellie and I making the snowflakes but later on the boys decided it was not to cool for them, even Duke, the dog, joined in on the fun. We have such awesome friends here!
Well this election has been by far very long and tedious. I am now hoping that all that was promised will be a reality but I am not feeling a lot of confidence right now. I see a part of history becoming the future again but this is America so now is the time to step up and stand behind it. I feel really bad because I loved Sara Palin and she has had to go through some pretty cruel accusations. I am glad that she will have some time with her family so that she can raise her little baby and help her daughter with hers. There are lots of things that I disagree with President Obama on but everyone deserves a chance and I am glad that I was here to see history made. How do you feel about the election??
We went and ate at Ohana's in the Polynesian Resort on Saturday. It was really fun and we got to meet a few characters while we were eating. I always love eating at Disney because of the Mickey Cakes they are so yummy! When we first arrived and sat down Teri found a huge spider sitting next to her so they moved us to another table. It was a pretty gross spider and none of us wanted to kill it, YUCK!
Here are a few pictures of me and my friends enjoying the parks. We ran into Jasmine and Aladdin at EPCOT and had to get a picture. Dave really wanted to stand by Jasmine but I decided to intervene so that Teri wouldn't get into a fight with her, ha ha. We had a lot of fun but I think that they were pretty tired by the end of there visit!
So it has been a crazy week!! Some friends of ours from Utah came to visit us for the week and we had such a blast. I don't know how many of you like Boyz 2 Men but Hano and I love them. We went to there concert at EPCOT and it was fantastic. I know that they are an older group but they put on a really good show!
Well this weekend Hano and I went to EPCOT to watch a John Secada and walk around the food and wine festival. Now I had no idea who John Secada was but apparently he was really popular when I was eight. Hano on the other hand new every word to every song, he is a dork! At the food and wine festival we had some Spaetzl from Germany, Pastel de Choclo from Argentina, and Empanada from Chile. The food is so good and we are planning on going back this weekend. We are having so much fun here and it will be really hard to go back to Utah and to leave all of our friends.
I decided to post some pictures of our apartment in Florida. It is not that exciting and not to decorated but we are happy with it. Most of the things in it we received for free, I am really glad because we are not planning on taking anything back to Utah with us except for the computers.
Well this is are bedroom. I know it is not fancy at all in fact that is not even a beadspread it is just a blanket. I did not want to buy anything because i wont be taking it back to Utah with me so i would rather spend the money on some shoes ;)
I just want to say that blogspot is not the easiest thing to learn. I am getting the hang of it but i still don't know how to change my template to a cute one. So until i figure it out you just have to look at my boring one for a while. I am also open for tips!!
Well Hano and I are always at Disney World these days and my favorite thing to do is meet the stars. This past week some of Hano's cousins brought their goddaughter here to play in the parks. We took them to breakfast at a place called the Tusker House in Animal Kingdom. The best part about eating here, besides the Mickey cakes, are the characters that walk around while you eat so you get a picture with them and you don't have to stand in a line!!
Hano and I were married in the Salt Lake Temple on September 22, 2006. I am so lucky to have him in my life. We are blessed with a great family and even though we don't have any kids we have the cutest nieces and nephews! We are very excited to finish school and finally get started in a career, and then maybe a family;) So far life has been good, we have been able to share some great adventures and experiences that have helped us grow closer together and to learn.
