Vegas Trip

Well here it is people our wonderful and glorious trip to Vegas. We really didn't bust out the camera that much as you can tell, but it was an awesome trip. We got to see our friends and the gorgeous Vegas Temple. It was amazing. It also made our wedding all that more real. We are super excited to see everyone and can't wait for it to be our turn. I hope that you enjoy our pictures. I had fun taking them. Next time I will use my camera more and get a better documentation of things. This trip just seemed very rushed which is sad cuz it was a lot of fun.

The Weekend Wedding.

Alright so here it is the Wedding that many of us have been waiting 8 excruciatingly long years. Well all I have to say is congratulations to Jeremy and Kristina Mikelson. I can't express my love and appreciation for these two individuals. I have been through a lot with the two of them and am glad to have finally see them come together in the bonds of marriage. This was very exciting for me because I was the Best Man and was able to share some of those feelings with them and with the families of these two individuals as well. Families that I have both grown to love and call my own as well. Well anyways on to the pictures of these wonderful festivities. I hope that you have enjoyed a
small glimpse into this wonderful wedding. If you would like to see all the pictures than you can go to my webalbums the post is in the links portion on the side of the blog.
Hammy out.

Advice From Edward Abbey

"One final paragraph of advice: Do not burn yourself out. Be as I am-a reluctant enthusiast... a part time crusader, a half-hearted fanatic. Save the other half of yourselves and your lives for pleasure and adventure. It is not enough to fight for the land; it is even more important to enjoy it. While you can. While it is still there. So get out there and mess around with your friends, ramble out yonder and explore the forests, encounter the grizz, climb the mountains. Run the rivers, breathe deep of that yet sweet and lucid air, sit quietly for a while and contemplate the precious stillness, that lovely, mysterious and awesome space. Enjoy yourselves, keep your brain in your head and your head firmly attached to your body, the body active and alive, and I promise you this much: I promise you this one sweet victory over our enemies, over those deskbound people with their hearts in a safe deposit box and their eyes hypnotized by desk calculators. I promise you this: you will outlive the bastards."”
~Edward Abbey.

Thanks Edward. You are an inspiration to us all.

Christmas Rocks

Well I just thought that I would share a little bit about my Christmas seeing how I am at work doing absolutely nothing. I have no one to work with and nothing to do. But I did have a free platter of ribs for my Christmas dinner tonight. It was awesome. Well anyways, I woke up at right around 4 or 4:30am and talked to Audrey, cuz she called me, until probably close to 5:30 or 6am my time. So then it became the waiting game until everyone was awake. It was fun because Aiden wanted to open presents really badly. He was standing by the tree just wanting to open up all the presents. It was funny. Well needless to say it didn't take long to get started in on the process of opening gifts. We all had a very lovely morning full of laughter as well as the thoughtful aww inspiring gifts. From the hilarious to the tear jerkers. It was a very happy and successful year. The only thing that could have made it that more amazing is if those who are soon to be a part of this family and those who have been a part of this family could have been there as well. But you can't have it all and so thus we must just enjoy that of which we have and the rest will work it's way into the picture sooner or later. Here are just a few of the pictures from the Christmas extravaganza. If you want to see them all you can go to my web album in the links section of this blog. Thanks.

Well I am at work it is the eve of Christmas Eve and I have had four expected arrivals for the last four hours. When I came in we had five. I did one walk-in and checked in one reservation. I have also canceled many reservations due to the fact that our pool is down. This is always fun. I especially enjoy telling people that "Our policy is that we must have a credit card on file and therefore we can't house you for this evening, sorry." That is already what has happened a few times this evening. I have read my new Urban Climber from cover to cover and am now just trying not to lose my sanity. I have tried to read a random book that I found in the back and didn't get far into that before I started to fall swiftly into slumber. I am the only one here at the front desk and can't leave early because of the fact that I have none to replace me and finish out the rest of my shift. This is probably the least interesting post I have ever posted, but can't stop just because of the simple fact that it is something to do. I am almost contimplating getting a little game boy or nintendo D.S. just for these rare occassions where the most action you see is when somone from the bar walks byt on there merry way to the bathroom. Well enough on this I am going to try and not die before my shift ends in THREE more hours.

Six Month Anniversary.

Well folks it's been six of the most glorious months with an amazing women that I am proud to call my Fiancee'. Of course this post wouldn't be complete without some pictures to go with our little celebration. I was the camera operator on this expedition and I do believe that they came out quite well. We had a delicious dinner and watched the Holiday. It was wonderful. The dinner was homemade. We did the cooking together and it was awesome. Then we sat down to watch the movie and next thing I know the movie is just about over. Well I fell asleep during the movie. It just goes to show that the food hit the spot. Just right for a nap. We had a wonderful time. A perfect evening with the perfect lady.
