Early Christmas Present

A little music shop in Gresham is having an awesome sale on electric and acoustic guitars. Ryan & I stopped in.. and we now have a new addition to the family... meet Lucy (as in the vivacious red head we all know and love, Lucille Ball)

She is my early Christmas present. I Love it. My first metal string guitar I purchased from a store. I already have a nylon string classical, it is an heirloom and I love it, it's kinda exciting to buy a new guitar, and now I have TWO!
Which doesn't quite compare to Ryan's 5, but I'm working on it. ;)

One of the quotes I really liked from General Conference...

I really like this. It's a good reminder for me, cause when I see cute little babies, I freak out a little sometimes cause I think I want one right now, but I need to remember they are not a stamp collection (or button collection in my case) and they take time and preparation. But I also need to remember, that when having a child/children, it's on the Lord's time table.

(no I'm not announcing anything, Ryan and I are just in a point of our marriage where we are talking more of the "when are we going to?", not just, "someday" and discussing the next 5 years with those types of things to consider.)

Okay we're not really in Pickletown, we're in Bickleton. But my friends call it Pickletown and insist that zombies live up here, cause what else would? My brother and his family of course! Ryan & I made a quick trip up here lllaaaattteeeee last night. We saw 6 deer and killed a zillion bugs on our windshield, but we made it! We've been relaxing and watching general conference. Ate cinnamon rolls and cheesey dip so far. In between the morning and afternoon sessions, we walked to the post office and grabbed some lunch at the cafe and got back just in time to eat and then fall asleep during the session.

Here are some (a lot) photos of our endeavor into the windy town of Pickletown.

love that girl
