Weekend of Excitement!!

Well the past couple of weeks have been pretty exciting! Two weeks ago we went into Seattle for a day at Pike Place Market! We saw lots of fun and interesting things! But we really enjoyed ourselves! Last weekend Matt and I went to the Sonics vs. Blazers game! It was pretty much the Sonics kickin' butt the whole time but it was fun and we enjoyed ourselves! Also, Matt was pretty excited to get his bike running! He has been working hard on customizing it and it is coming along just wonderfully!

Early Saturday morning I got a phone call from Cassidy to let us know that we were an Aunt and Uncle to another nephew! Brody Allen Gunnell was born on Saturday at 2:52AM, 25 (I think) days early! We were super excited and are happy to have another nephew! Matt and I ended or began, however you look at it, the week speaking in church! This was our first time speaking as a married couple and I think we did quite a darn good job! We also attended a baptism for Mary, a woman we have had the pleasure of getting to know over the last 2 weeks due to our calling as Ward Missionaries. It was a wonderful Sunday!

So this past week Matt and I took hunters education so we could be certified hunters. I at first went simply to support my husband in his interests but the first class I was hooked! I really learned a lot and I got excited about actually going out and hunting! I talked to Shay and Chelsea during the week and they found it pretty amusing and I totally agreed! Who would have thought me, the little blonde hairstylist, into something like hunting! But I really have developed a huge interest in it! The class was a lot of fun and we enjoyed ourselves!

Thursday came, the day of the big test, and to tell you the truth I was really nervous! I felt like I was in high school all over again taking the final that would either make or break my grade..........this just determined whether or not I could ever hunt, which like I mentioned before, has become something I really would like to do! We did our share of studying and to our excitement passed the test! It was a lot harder than I thought but at the same time I felt pretty confident! We got our little certificates and are waiting to receive our actual cards in the mail. Below are pictures from our shooting portion of our class...mine is the first picture and Matt's is the second, more wrinkled one!

So the Cahoons are doing well! Matt and I have certainly been blessed with good jobs that we both enjoy and that pay us well. It is a comforting feeling to know that we are actually saving money, at least for now! Hooray!

We wanted to say happy birthday to the cutest niece in the entire world! Plus this gives us an excuse to put a picture of her on our blog. And trust me we have plenty to choose from, we laugh that people would think she was ours because of the many pictures we have! She has been fun to watch learn and grow and we are excited to continue with that! Happy Birthday and we love you Brylie!!!
