Shae Turns 4!

Monday, May 11th, 2015 in About Me

Last month it was Shae’s birthday, she turned 4. Shae has changed a lot over this past year. Her interests, favorite things, and personality. This year she became a Sunbeam and really loved her teachers. She started a once a week preschool, twice a week tumbling classes, and weekly tap, jazz, and ballet. I really […]

Abby Rae Turns 9

Thursday, March 19th, 2015 in About Me

Well I knew it, I just knew it. I did a joint baby shower for my two cousins two years back. While hanging up pictures of them on a long string from birth to engagement photos. I noticed something troublesome. I could see after their baptism picture that time sped up. I could see it […]

Things I Loved When My Sister Was Here

Wednesday, March 18th, 2015 in About Me

One day each of us won’t have 2 year olds that get very stressed out in new environments. The screaming will stop and also the throwing themselves on the floor like a rag dolls will end. UNTIL THEN, we will not have the most relaxing visits. I loved the free days full of fun. Bean […]

Growing on Up, 2nd Edition

Tuesday, January 20th, 2015 in About Me

Cameron (like Abby last Christmas) received a card for a gift and inside the card it told her she was getting her ears pierced in 2 days. Which was such a relief to her because it was taking FOooooOooorever for her to turn 7 1/2! She did not want to wait until then so got […]

Christmas Day 2014

Tuesday, January 20th, 2015 in About Me

There is not much I remember about Christmas morning. Tyler two years in a row has put together the most creative, time consuming, and thoughtful gifts. I need to take pictures of the two gifts he has given me so I can share them. This year I tried to spoil him and he never acts […]

Things I Loved This Holiday Season

Thursday, January 1st, 2015 in About Me

Things I loved this holiday season, and that I didn’t love. This holiday season was a bit lonely, stressful, and we fought as a family during a couple of our favorite annual outings. And then we had a lot of great times. Our ward puts on the most beautiful, organized, beautifully thought out parties. This […]

Christmas Tree 2014

Thursday, January 1st, 2015 in About Me

We cut down, dragged home, and put up the Christmas tree the day after Thanksgiving. In doing so I wiped out (meaning all fell down, crashed to pieces, I superglued) a wall of frames. Then the tree did not have time to be decorated until two days before Christmas. You have to pay attention to […]

Easiest Thanksgiving in History 2014

Thursday, January 1st, 2015 in About Me

Well, well, well. Who knew you could just go out to dinner for Thanksgiving. Did you all know you could do that? I think I might only want to cook once every 3 years and go out to eat the other years from here on out. This year we met Tyler at the Grand America, […]

Saturday, December 13th, 2014 in About Me, Our Travels Worldwide

This was the first vacation as a family that I did not organize and plan way in advance. I found time just one or two days before we left to do some investigating on what we should do on our trip. A lot of blogs, yelp reviews, etc. suggested a day trip to Yelapa. More […]
