My Sweet Husband..

I know everyone says they have the best husband..but you area all mistaken. Cuz you see, I have the BEST husband ever! Tommy is such a goof and always tries to do anything to make me laugh or smile. He is my best friend and I am so lucky to have him. We have so much fun whatever we are doing..even if we are sitting at home making dinner or redboxin it up.. we are constantly laughing! He is so thoughtful and suprises me everyday. Every other week or so when we make our walmart trips (its the only thing out by us and has become a pretty exciting endeavor!).. he goes missing for a few minutes then shows up with the prettiest tulips (which are my absolute favorite flower!) that they had that day! He is so hard working and jumps at the chance to help anyone. My dad went out of town and Tommy did a whole watering system for his garden for him (thought of the idea all on his own!) ..Then this weekend his parents went out of town and we all pitched in and painted and decorated and cleaned their house for them! He recently just got a 2nd job part time after he gets off Town of Queen Creek at a tree nursery out here in QC. ( see what I mean about hard working!) He is going to try going back to school for his fire fighting in the fall and he just signed up to take his state EMT test. Anyway, just wanted to brag a little about how much fun I have with my husband and how much I love him!! :) I love you Thomas!!!

just a few pictures of the many faces of Tommy :)

Im only 21!

ok so we just moved into our new ward like 2 1/2 - 3 months ago. So still brand new! I've met a few families and members but not many. No one has even come to welcome us yet so we thought we were in the clear :)... wrong! We get a call the other night asking if we could meet with bishop before church sunday...oh dang... I say yes and we head down to the church 30 minutes early. We go into bishops office, meet the bishopric then sit down. Bishop talks to Tommy for a few minutes and asks if hes nervous and what not. He then says well brother Merrill, we called you in here today to issue your wife a calling! WHAT!!! NO! So of course Tommy has a grin on his face from ear to ear while they call me to the position of "compassionate service LEADER." Your kidding right?! I'm only 21, isn't that a job for the older more established ladies in the ward?! I don't know whether to take it as a compliment on they think I have lots of compassion to do this job, or they think I dont have enough and need lots more! hmm.... Well I accepted and headed off. I then call my mom and sisters to tell them the news when they all inform me of how big of job that is... suck... I guess I should've known when I founf out there has been 13 babies born in our ward since january! yes I said 13.... well, I'm hoping its a blessing in disguise :) jk..I am excited and hope I can fulfill my calling how I am expected to! If anyone has any pointers feel free to comment! wish me luck :)

Sammy Jewel

Samantha Jewel Walker has arrived! I know im like 3 late but better late than never! ( its because my computer is lame spice!) We are so excited to welcome samantha to our family. Shes just as cute as Emma and Matthew! :) Congrats Steph and Curt! We love yoU!

The Merrill Fire Dept.

One Saturday we had a brilliant idea to go to Lowes and buy some wood and make our pups a dog house. So we (mostly Tommy!) started building in our garage so the dogs wouldn't bug us out in the yard. Well we got it all done except for paint and the shingles and decided to move it to the backyard. Small didn't fit throught the house doorway OR the gate! and it weighed a thousand pounds! So at like 9 o clock at night we had to have our neighbor and his son and our friend brent that lives down the street come over to help. 2 of them were on our neghbors side of the fence and 2 on our side lifting it over the fence :) It was quite the ordeal but worth it! The dogs love it and we think it turned out pretty dang cute!

date night!

My cousin Chad who is also Tommys best friend came into town last weekend (he lives in Washington now!) So we decided to set him up on a date with one of my good friends Christina who I went to beauty school with. We went and ate at Yc's Mongolian grill (YUM!) then went bowling. It was so fun :)
