Lots of pictures to post. Thanksgiving with the Jessop family. Isn't their little boy, Dylan, a doll? He just turned one and is such a cutie. Here's some photos from the day we spent over there. It was fun and relaxing...our favorite kind of holidays. Oh, and we had WAY too much food.
Anyway...there are more pictures coming your way...get excited.

I heard blogging is awesome and so here I am blogging. Ok ok... really I'm just looking for an excuse to be doing something other than schoolwork! And I thought this was a good picture of me.
Well, I'm hoping the whole world starts blogging and we can link to each other's pages and we can see everyone having so much fun and the world will just be a great place. Melissa and I have more fun than anyone should, we are always going out to eat at Rudy's http://rudysbbq.com - It is so finger lickin' good.
Melissa works all the time and brings home the bacon while I go to school and play with wax (building teeth). Hopefully this post was a shorty but a goody for everyone, love you all!

Aaron only has one more month (exactly 30 days) till the end of his first semester at dental school. Is that strange to anyone else but me? I mean, he is pretty much half way done with his first year. At this rate, the four years are going to fly by. Right? Yes, say right.
Me? I am working, I don't come home as exhausted as I used to, but, I have to say, I am usually wiped out by the end of the day...not a lot of motivation to do things, except for things like creating blogs and new websites. Luckily, I have been able to use the time after work for LOTS of projects for my little company. I have lots of things to now put ON the website, but the problem is creating the website itself. Ha! Details, right? I didn't realize the time involved--I mean, I had an idea, but didn't really know. If you want to check it out, my website is http://melimba.com/test3.html. Hopefully it just created a link to it. I worked on it for the past few days, but it isn't loading correctly. If you just went to it, it probably said something like "website coming soon"...which is true! It is coming soon! Get excited.
Aaron and I took a day and went to Austin a little bit ago. We went for a exhibition of the Gees Bend Quilters http://www.amoa.org/site/PageServer?pagename=ex_past that is a link to that show. It was really fun to go play with Aaron. It is great having your best friend ALL of the time. I mean, we have so much fun, even when we are just both sitting at the kitchen table gmail chatting with each other. He's a good one, that boy. I'm glad he's here. No, I'm really glad he's here.
Here is the lovely state capital that aaron and I took a "sort-a-kind-a-tour"...we started with the real tour guide and then decided to leave and discover the capital in our own way. It was fun, a little scary, but fine. I was worried that we weren't supposed to go to certain "wings" and Aaron was charging along, lookin' like he owned the place. It was a good day in our lives.
Anyway, that is all I feel like writing right now. Lots of love to you. Oh, and in case you were curious...I don't think we were breaking any rules going into this press room. The lights were on and the door was open? We are good kids. Law abiding kids who can't vote because I forgot to mail back in our voter registration here. Oops.

Well, in a few minutes we are going to head over to some of our new ward friend's house to go eat some REAL Italian food. I visit teach with Christine, who has lived in Italy for the past 25ish years. So, she wanted to show us how to cook pasta and sauce the "right" way. Man, depending on how good it is, we might have to stop buying the premade $1 a can sauce. We love the sauce that we usually have, so, I say, bring on the competition! * ha!
FYI...instead of me making these little smiley faces :) as shown, I will use the star key. As shown above. Just so you know, okay?
FAST FORWARD...a few hours...almost four hours-----zip! Now here we are in the present. We just got back from our friends' house, Kemy and Chris Bates (he is finishing up a Dental residency here in San Antonio, they came here from Boston, where he just finished dental school) and it was SOooooOOOooooOOOooo much fun. I told Aaron that I really liked this Kemy a few weeks ago, and that I knew that he'd like Chris, and tonight we ate over there. Two of her sisters and one of her brothers were in town en route from Philidelphia to Utah. They were so much fun. I haven't laughed that hard for such a long time. It was great.
We're finally starting to settle in here. I am making good friends and feeling like we're kind of a part of life here. It is good. It has taken how many months to get "here"? oh, yeah, almost 5 months--but it is finally coming. I am not super home sick EVERY single day of life anymore, which is probably a positive. * Right? yes.
Anyway, we have full bellies, both of us have a computer in our laps, and I am in the La-z-boy...livin' la vida loca. That is right. Feeling good here in Texas.
oh, i just remembered how much I loved these peonies that I got from Costco last year. Aren't they such a wonderful flower? I think they are my most favorite right now...you know, of all the flowers in the world? these are great.
