Our First Thanksgiving Together!

Stephen and I had the opportunity to spend our first thanksgiving together all alone! My family spent thanksgiving in Utah but Stephen had to work so we stayed in San Diego.

It was so much fun to spend the whole day with Stephen making Thanksgiving dinner and playing games. The dinner was actually really good, considering neither of us really knew what we were doing, but there were SO MANY yummy leftovers. After dinner we layed on the couch in a turkey comma, well for us it was a ham comma because neither Stephen nor myself really likes turkey :), and watched Extreme Makeover: Home Edition. All in all, an amazing thanksgiving!

P.S. Stephen did all the dishes, he's so great!!

So I've gotten some updates about my ankle adventures. It seems that in true Sian style I have gotten some fancy rare condition called Complex Regional Pain Syndrome (CRPS). It is a condition where my central nervous system is sending more pain to my ankle then necessary. I have to get a series of three shots in my back to jump start the healing, yay; you all know my love for shots :). And possibly the worst news is that I will not heal for at least a year. But the good news is that I have mild case so it may go away sooner, who knows.

Stephen is recently got a job at Costco and he is really enjoying. And other then my ankle troubles we're doing relatively well.

For Halloween Stephen and I dressed up as Scarecrows. Stephen even let me put makeup on him! He looks way scarier then I intended but it worked out because I wasn't scary looking at all. We went to our ward Trunk or Treat and a little girl asked if we were real or decoration. Quite an accomplishment I think :).

Bate's Nut Farm

Today I took Stephen to one of my favorite childhood places, Bate's Nut Farm. It's a farm that always has an amazing array of pumpkins around Halloween. We had so much fun and we even found a type of pumpkin that's called a fairytale pumpkin. It looks just like the pumpkin Cinderella's carriage turned into at midnight! That's awesome!

Ankle Problems!

For everyone who doesn't know, about two months ago I fell off a ladder at work and messed up my ankle. The worst part is that the doctors can't quite figure out what's wrong. All we know is that it hurts a lot. I've been to one specialist who had some ideas about what was wrong and I have to see another specialist to either confirm or deny it. I vote we just chop it off but Stephen says no way. We'll see what happens.

Stephen and I on our wedding day!
