Finally time to sit down and write a little bit. So much has transpired since our "moving day." Well first of all WE GOT MARRIED!!! wahoo I love this man... **** !!!! Then we went on our honeymoon!!!!! Wahoooooo!!!!!!!!! God is good and his plan for marriage is perfect! Came home from Belize and wouldn't you know we had one day to attempt to "settle in" and then it was Christmas Eve with his family until 3 am and then Christmas Day with my family. Then the 26th more family came to visit that had been spending time with my Grandparents in NorCal and came to spend a few days with us. I've got some cute pics from out trip to disneyland. My cousins first trip since they were 8& 5 years old. They're from Oklahoma and wanted to soak up some California fun and adventure. From then on it's been back to work, lovely dates here and there and working on the house. We went to The Melting Pot restaurant in Irvine. (Both of our first time) It was a lot of fun but would you know we didn't take a single picture even though we got dressed up and fabulous. I need to work on this. Maybe if I get an SLR it will motivate me to document our lives more efficiently... maybe :)... What do you think El will say...
Anyway here are a few pics from lovely Belize on our honeymoon.
This is our little hut complete with a grass roof and everything.

The place was so relaxing the first day we just relaxed and enjoyed hammocks and umbrella drinks! One thing I loved about Belize was the food. Ele and I both LOVE seafood. So a country on the Caribbean was a perfect choice for us. Staples for them are spiny lobster, shrimp, conch (mmmnnn conch curry so good!). One night we had the sea bass that our honeymooning friends had caught earlier that day on an excursion. This is spiny lobster cooked in a wine cream sauce, with an appetizer of ceviche. So good!

Thank you so much for your love! As far as we can tell I think we are okay. I just need to get Elijah some rain boots or snow boots, but that is something we can get it's just that i went to Target and didn't find them. Thank you again for your prayers and concern. We are so excited for you guys and your new life together. We talk about you guys over here, we miss you! Josh Gadd says hi and he wants to get in touch with y'all. Tell Ele we are excited for his schooling, I'm sure God will use it to grow him and you. Love you muncho and praying for you guys.
-ft (haha I just have a habit of doing this)

P.S. Not sure if you and Ele know (since we really had no contact for awhile) we are having a girl. Her name will be Key Hava Tibayan!
