Happy New Years

Our new years was super fun. We went out with our friends the Dunns. We ate at Christianos in Marysville. Then we went back to Jaimie's parents house to play games and watch the fireworks on TV. It was a wild party with the four of us that didn't end until 4am when Nayt and Travis finally called the Monopoly game an tie.
We talked about New Years resolutions and I think an important one on our list is TAKE MORE PICTURES. This is the photo of the night.

Christmas Card 2010

The Mattoon’s in 2010
There were a lot of changes in 2010.
We were tried and tested again and again.
At the beginning of this past year,
we thought we were ready and had no fear.
Travis got accepted to WSU,
and we both had good jobs too.
Travis worked nights with school during the day,
to earn his AA it was the only way.
Courtney loved working and had lots of friends,
which made change much harder in the end.
With no work and Travis’ school all done,
it was time to road trip and have some fun.
We went on the road and traveled a bit,
and got our 1st baby Beagle Bandit.
We enjoyed time with family the entire summer,
but moving from Rexburg was a major bummer.
Before we left Courtney had one last thing to do:
Get over her fear of horses and ride a few.
Thanks to the Wolfe’s she did it, and loved it too.
Now we can’t wait to own one or two
We made it through, we don’t know how.
But Pullman is our new home for now.
Travis loves loves loves Washington State.
In his mind there is nothing to hate.
Courtney now teaches at the U of I,
loving her job and ward helps her days go by
Nala the boxer is now apart of our home.
She was a surprise we’re happy to own.
Now we are finally all settled in,
and amazed what a year it has been
We are thankful for the love
from our family and God above.
We wish you a wonderful year.
Stop in to see us if you are near.
Love the Mattoons:
Travis, Courtney, Bandit, and Nala
Keep up with us all year long

Travis got Black Ops and a new fancy stereo for his Ipod.
We got a whole jeep load full of new stuff. Thanks again family!

Oh how I wish Pullman and Rexburg were closer this holiday season.
When I count my blessing's Christie's friendship is definitely way way WAAAAAY up at the top.

Happy 23rd Bday to me

I turned 23! That feels so old to me. I am not sure why but maybe it's because now it seems I'm "in my twenties."
Jaimie and Nayt made me Chicken Cor Don Bleu it was delicious! Then on Monday the Dunns and the Muais took us to the best mexican place Casa Lopez
Then the following week we had a Murder Mystery Dinner Party. It was 1920's theme! It was so SO fun. I want to do another one soon!
Here are some pictures of the night

New Specs

I got new glasses! I was super excited to update my prescription and get new frames. I thought while I was at it I would take you on a trip down memory lane:

This is my first pair of glasses I wore full time. Starting in 9th or 10th grade.

These ones are from senior year (even though this picture isn't) I got black ones to wear with my black tones. Must match.

I got These after my brown glasses fell off on a ride in Vegas. I was so sad to lose them especially since I had to go on my cruise blind.

I got contacts right before my wedding and now I have these

My first wire frames. I love eye insurance
