I don't know. We both know the basics. I'd say me though, just because I grew up with my Dad, who's a computer tech
40. Leave a piece of advice for the other couples.
Marriage should be selfless...I think you'll be the most happy when you put the other person's happiness before your own.

The day after we arrived, all the family got together for the delayed Christmas party/birthday party for Emma and uncle Bill. We had tons of great food and had fun playing games with each other. It was especially fun to play the left/right game where everyone sits in a circle and passes a gift left or right depending on which word is said during a story. The funniest part though was when everyone opened their gifts, we all traded with one another until we all got what we wanted...
Here's our poor Arizona car covered in a few inches of snow...
This is a picture of the street in front of my grandparent's house...oh wait, you can't even see it!
This is Jeff...VOLUNTARILY shoveling snow from the sidewalk and carport (he actually asked my grandpa if he could, haha)
It's snowing on us!
We wanted to go sledding the first day it snowed, so we drove around for a while and couldn't find any good hills...as we drove back though, we saw some kids sledding down a slope on the edge of the cemetary (which is right across the way from my grandparent's house) We were so excited! So we bought some plastic...sled...things...(the first of which we broke after the second try) and had a blast! Because it was so close we went sledding a couple of days...
I'm about to go down on my belly...
Emma going down on a tobaugan? Toe-bog-in? I don't know what it's called, but it's a plastic disc you sit in...
This is where we would end up after going down the slope
Apparently Jeff is really good friends with the snow...
...he likes the snow so much, he'll dress in barely anything...
This is our snow-family! On one of the other days it was snowing we decided to build some snowmen, since the fallen snow was perfect 'packing' snow, or so my cousins said. As you can see, they're HUGE (almost as tall as Jeff)! It took a lot of work to build them...there were 6 of us that spent almost 2 hours getting them perfected...
