nick and i both had our work christmas parties. they were fun! my work party we ate at carrabba's (i am so sad i have been wasting my time on other food!) it was amazing! for nick's we went to dinner at a hotel and then went to the jazz game! we saw them play the miami heat... nick was stoked to see dwayne wade and shaq play. we had a good time driving on the way there and back... probably because we didn't have to drive...

thanksgiving was so wonderful! we were able to spend time with my grandparents, cousins, phil, steph & adam, and my dad in salt lake city in the morning. i am sad i didn't get any pictures with them. then we went to pleasant grove with nick's family and cousins. it was our first thanksgiving together as a married couple and i was so glad it turned out so smoothly (and that we were able to have two dinners :) ).

so we have been having a great time during the holidays! we hope everyone is too! while i was looking for some gift ideas and ran across this picture....

i can't believe how much it looks like lukey!!! i thought it was hilarious! denise, this would be a great present wouldn't it?! maybe a paperweight for derek at the office?

so nick has been hard at work and school but when he has free time he has been playing music with his friends that he grew up with in california. they have played a couple shows in provo and have done a great job! it is fun to go and support them (especially because they have fun wives and girlfriend to hang out with :) ). If you live in the area, i think i am going to post when their next shows are if you would like to come and support them. Its always fun to have a big crowd!

so for mandi's birthday she got a pretty awesome present... her very first niece! nick's oldest brother gabe and his wife jessica had a beautiful healthy baby girl! her name is malina kailani corotan. she weighed a little under 7 pounds...she's so little! we have been spending a lot of time with them just ooing and ahhing over her.

isn't she adorable? we just love her!

mandi is going to become a stylist at von curtis salon in a couple of weeks and she can't wait! nick has been doing great in school and enjoying the free time that he has. he is playing his first show with his band on saturday. they have been sounding great and it will be exciting to see them play!

its crazy to be back in utah with the crazy weather! it was a blizzard on saturday and has warmed up and a lot of the snow is gone...thank goodness! i mean come on... its not even halloween yet! hopefully the weather stays good for a little longer...

we have moved to provo a month ago and are finally getting settled. we have been traveling while trying to work and move into our new basement apartment. we were able to go to minnesota twice! once to visit and enjoy the family and once for stephanie and adam's beautiful wedding in nauvoo. we had two family reunions on the same weekend one in utah and one in idaho. we have been enjoying the last of our summer.
nick is starting at byu this fall and going into business. he transferred with his associates degree so he can get right into his major. he is working for a company called logoworks who have recently been acquired by hp. mandi is working at von curtis salon at the shops at riverwoods and is assisting for only 3 months and will soon have her own chair. she will also be taking a few classes at byu. just for fun...if that is fun. i am sure she will soon find out.
we are excited to be in provo and are enjoying our student married ward. we also can't wait until mandi's family moves to utah. hopefully the house sells quickly so keep them in your prayers.
