From The Wehles!
Just a few highlights over our busy year.
This year Matt and I had a crazy ride with all that happened to us, to think that just a few months ago we were in Arkansas wondering when we were going to move back to Virginia is crazy to me. So let's start from the beginning, earlier on this year we were in Arkansas slowly establishing ourselves in that state. I had gotten a job at a local bank and actually loved it. I loved being a bank teller and learning the in's and out's of the process. It was so much fun to be apart of that, and I had such great co-workers to boot! I loved working there and my managers were awesome, and were all so kind they even had goodbye cupcakes for me on my last day of work.
Another thing that I am sure most of you know is the fact we had a little addition to our family. Our kitten Yuri, who has been such a great added part to our family. He is very lovable, follows us form room to room and he needs to know where we are at all times. He is very involved in all that we do and listens very well, he is a great and added bonus to our family and we love him so much. It's our first Christmas with him and surprisingly enough he hasn't touched a single ornament. He is now 10 months old and will be ONE on Matt's birthday this year!
Matt has been busy with his job this year as well, from training in Arkansas to being asked to come on board with the Public Sector for HP has turned our lives upside down. He was asked to take the position around the end of June, and was told we had until the beginning of August to move to Virginia. Luckily for us Momma Wendi has those connections with being a realtor to help us find our new home in Virginia. We were so grateful for the help especially since we bugged her enough to go see houses and to figure out which one's we liked. The process was so much easier with her helping us and with our family supporting us and for that we are grateful.
This is our humble little home, it looks a little different now with the cold weather and the improvements on the gutters and the steps I am putting in outside but it basically looks the same. I have done a little decorating here and there in our little house but nothing too much, we have to save back up from buying the house in the first place! We have 3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms, with an upgraded kitchen and a finished basement. Matt uses the basement more than I do for his office, and his small studio for recording music as well. Since being homeowners for a little while now, we have discovered it is true that there are always projects. We have also learned a lot when it comes to water heaters, pressure tanks, garbage disposals, and more!
All in all we have been so happy to be back in Virginia, we have missed being closer to our families and living in this great state. We now live only 30 minutes north of where we grew up and are now part of northern Virginia and closer to DC. Matt loves his new job with HP and working as their technical consult on the software side, and I have my part time job to keep me busy as well and it has been great. But the things that has us kept us the busiest is being around family again, we are invited to all the things we couldn't go before or be apart of. So now we are going to little parties, or just get togethers and now we party all the time!
Being here for Halloween
Going to lots of Capitals Games
Having Sleepovers with Cousins, while Yuri inspects the new visitors
Going on random trips with family to the National Harbor
Being here when family comes in from Utah to visit
Getting our first live tree from Home Depot
We were also asked to be apart of the Christmas Party Committee
I have to say it looked awesome [and it was a lot of work]
This has been our year in 2014, I can't wait to see what happens in 2015. It has been a great year full of moving, starting new jobs while getting and buying a house. We hope you all have a great holiday season and we are so excited for Christmas this year!
Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year from the Wehles!
