So Saturday night the 27 was Mallorys birthday and we had quite a fun day. We planned a fun day together that is. We both got up in the morning and went to get massages at Massage Envy and that was great. We both liked who did the massages for us cause they both did a great job. We both got deep tissue massages and found that we had quite a few knots in our backs and neck. So they worked them out in what I thought was kind of painful, lol. But afterwards it felt so much better. Then we came home and did just a little bit of cleaning and then got ready for a fun night out. We went to her parents so that she could open her birthday presents and got a little bit of money and a ring that she loves that has black and white diamonds (if you ever wanna buy her a present, anything black and white will do just perfect). So after that I made reservations at a little Thai place in Oldtown Scottsdale called Malee's Thai Bistro. The food was amazing. Quite spicy obviously being Thai food. After the good meal we went to see a movie her parents reccomended called Slumdog Millionaire. It was a really good movie. We reccomend it to anyone who wants to see a great movie. However to my wife's disappointment, she thought it was based on a true story but came to find out it was just based off a book. Then after that we came home and just layed in bed and fell asleep watching tv. That was our fun day together. Love you all!

Well now that christmas is over I'm not sure whether to be excited or sad. Such a great time of the year cuase you are always with family and everyone is just in such great and happy moods. But at the same time it's nice that it's over cause it's also the most stressful time of the year. It took me forever to find a present to get Mallory but after about 10 different stores I finally found this picture frame with two 8x10 spots so we could put a picture of the Savior in one and the Family Proclamation in the other. She's wanted that up for a while now and also a picture of the temple so I got her a new bigger picture of the temple as well. And the last thing I got her was these cute brown and teal signs with cute sayings on them that she could put up in our guest bedroom since her colors she chose to do in there were brown and teal. As for our Christmas day we spent the morning at her parents place opening present with her family where we both got lots of gifts that we love so much. I got some sweaters and clothes and lots of tools since we always have to borrow her dads. I think he got sick of us borrowing and returning a few weeks later, lol. My last gift was my favorite though, a spray in bed liner for our truck we got after we got married. Mallory got some clothes as well and another black purse that she loves. Some new shoes and a few other things as well. As a gift from her parents to us they got us the Hoover FloorMate cuase no matter how hard we mop our floors with our swiffer it just doesn't seem to do the job. Probably the price for having tile floors. After we were done with the gifts we packed up the car and heading down to my parents where we had a lovely meal and stuffed our faces full. Spend some time with the family down there and opened a few gifts. After the visit with my parents we went to go see Yes Man together, the new Jim Carey movie, and it was so funny. We reccomend everyone go see it. Then we came home and put things away and ended our christmas day. We are so greatful for everyone and the gifts we received and the wonderful christmas day we had. We love you all!

Well we went and got the puppies their first heair cuts the other day and thought we would put some pictures up of how they look now. It is significantly shorter and Jesse thinks they are as cute as can be and I on the other hand think Maya looks cuter but I loved Bella with her thick coat. The good thing about the hair cuts is it has helped big time in helping Bella get rid of the ring worm. After a week of the hair being cut, her ringworm has gone from gross to practically gone that it's amazing. These are our cute little puppies that Jesse bought me and I couldn't be happier with them. The best news of all, they are FINALLY potty trained. It really help when Jesse and his Dad and Jake layed the grass out back cause they love going out there and going potty. So thank you all!

So it looks like christmas came a little early... we did our christmas eve tradition a couple days early. Everyone came over for dinner and a show... little did they know they would be a part of it. So this is how it went staring:
Madisen as Joseph
Colby as the Wiseman
Andrew as the Sheperd
Bath as the Virgin Mary
Emalie as the Sheep
and a random baby doll as Baby Jesus.
The show was great and we all sang Christmas songs...Colby kind of sang his own random song, but it still turned out great. We all opend our Christmas Eve PJ's and got our yearly ournament. This was Jesse's first year of experiencing the Greenwald Christmas tradition...I don' think he was too excited about the pajamas... and yes we all match and wear them Christmas morning. Don't worry I am sure we will post some pictures of that. So besides watching everyone dress up, and seeing Jesse experience the Greenwald traditons, my highlight of the night was when my mom asked my Great Aunt Marie if we could use her cane for the shepard.... I about died laughing. Anyways well thats all for now! We love you all!

So last night we decided to have a fun night out and go walk around the Mesa Temple grounds to see all the lights and go through the visitors center. It was interesting and really pretty. The interesting part because in the visitors center they had a world nativity scene exhibit. It was cool to see all the different kinds of culteres and how they display the nativity scene. I think my favorite was the one that Alaska does cause its pretty cool. Mallory's favorite was the wooden hand carved display from Israel. The lights were very cool too cause we saw some lights that we had never seen before and we want to go buy them, lol. But here are just a few pictures that we took in front of the relection pond of us and we went with Jake and Madi so we took a picture of the four of us.

So alot has changed since we have been married. First off, the puppies are big now( well Bella is 5.12 and Maya is 5.1, but thats big for them) They are turning out to be two expensive investments. Bella some how got ringworm and we have been treating that for like a month and now Maya has it. I guess it takes months to go completely away, uhh what a pain! We (Well Jesse) laid down grass in our side yard which made potty training so much easier! They are doing great now and love going through the doggy door! Although the carpet is still going to need to be replaced, they were worth it.
As for me and Jesse, alot has changed with us too. I got fired from my job the end of October, oops... but it was from me missing to much being sick all the time. Which I am doing alot better, I haven't been sick in a while (Cross your fingers) and a couple weeks after that Jesse got laid off from his job at Henry Brown. They got laid off about half of the employees. So we were a little stressed for a while but I got a job working at this super cute clothing boutique called Junky Trunk off Val Vista and Southern, I work part time so next semester I am going to go to school full time. Jesse is selling alarms with his brother Jake, and doing really well at it. He too is going to go to school next semester. So we will both be working part time and going to school full time at MCC. Hopefully I can finish up soon so we can start having kids! Well thats all thats new with us, I can't wait for the holidays and my birthday (Dec. 27th) I love this time of year! Love you all!

Well after many tries of trying to get all of our honeymoon pictures up, we have finally gotten them up here. First I dropped my laptop and broke it and had to get it fixed and then we uploaded all the photos on Mallorys laptop and then it shut off and we lost the slideshow we created and this literally happened about 5 times. So finally after doing it right after church we got blessed and were able to get the photos up. So enjoy the pictures and feel free to leave your comments. We reccomend that anyone who hasn't gone to NYC to save up the money and take a trip, because it was the most wonderful time we have had in our lives.
