Me and my hubbie on Christmas Eve getting ready to watch a movie :)
My brother Taylor and sister in law Sara :)

All the darling cousins!

Hello everyone!! Sorry, its been awhile, Wade and I don't have internet at home so it's hard to update my blog, but hope everyone is doing well! Christmas was a blast and to have some time off work was so nice. Thank you to my wonderful husband and both of our families for making it such a nice Christmas for us. My brother and his wife are in town also from California and so it has been so much fun spending time with them. And for Christmas they announced they are expecting! What a nice Christmas present and the first grandbaby in our fam!! I'm so excited and happy for them. :) I'm going to miss them when they leave. Hope everyone's Christmas went well, and I will try to update again soon.

We had family pictures taken with Wade's side of the family about a month ago and then went up to the canyon and took our own pictures. It was a lot of fun and the weather was beautiful.

Our cute little nephew Sawyer on his uncle's shoulders!:)
My darling friend Carrie is having a baby! She lives in Florida so I never get to see her, but she had a shower about a month ago and I got to see her!! It was just like old times, lauging at everything, and just having a good time together! :)

Our California trip was a lot of fun. We drove to California to move my brother and his wife there, and all the hard work payed off because we were able to go to Disney Land one day. I missed my husband though, he wasn't able to come because of work. :(

Taylor, Sara, and Me :)

My family!

We worked so hard on moving them in all weekend with no air conditioner, and it was so dang hot!! It was so fun to see the apartment come together though. :)

My cousin Tanner in the red and his brothers Brock and Boe at our family reunion in June 09' Tanner's last race in Powder Mountain Utah finishing 1st!

A horrible tragedy has occured in our family. One week ago my cousin Tanner was coming down Powder Mountain (Ogden) in their motor home with a trailer hooked on the back full of motorcross bikes, and they lost their breaks and rolled off the mountain and my cousin was killed. He was with his best friend and his mechanic who had sever injuries, but survived. This was such a tragic accident and our whole family is devistated. We had a trip planned to go to California to move Taylor and Sara to California, so we drove there, and then we drove back for the funeral in Vegas on Saturday. This last week has been so hard for everyone, especially my aunt and uncle who are Tanner's parents, and just for the whole family. It just hurts so bad that his parents have to go on with their lives without their boy, I can't even imagine how painful that would be. He was so deeply loved and will be missed so so much by all of us. We have never had something so tragic like this happen to our family, we have been so sad. It truly has made us think so much about life and how precious it is, but we have been so comforted by the gospel and what we believe and the plan of salvation. This has been so so hard and many tears have been shed, but we know we will see him again and we know he is in a better place. What a beautiful funeral service we attended, it gave so much comfort and was so fun to hear so many fun stories of Tanner. We cried and we laughed, but we were so comforted by the words that we heard in the funeral. Tanner, my cousin, was deeply involved with motorcross and was a rising star in his sport. Tanner was also very close to going pro in motorcross. We are so proud of Tanner and will miss him so much. "Ride on Tanner!!" We love you!!!

A couple times this summer, Wade and I hiked up to Lake Katherine, and Lake Mary, which are just up by Brighton Ski Resort. The second time we went, we brought my brother Blake with us. It was fun just spending time with them, fishing at the lake and just relaxing. I was glad to bring my brother because he was off to college a couple weeks later at UVU. Although its not too far and we can still see him, it's just a change for everyone having him live down there. I'm so proud of Blake for getting a scholarship playing baseball at UVU and fulfilling his dreams. I just have to talk about my brother Taylor too, whom I'm also so proud of. He just recently got a job as a story board artist at Disney studios in California. I'm also so proud of him for fulfilling his dream and going for it. I love my brothers so much and will miss them, we are all so close, luckily Blake will be not too far, but Tay and Sara will be a little further, so we are just gonna have to make some trips to California and go and visit them often! Love ya Tay and Sara, I'm gonna miss you both! We are going down to California this week to move them down there and make a little trip out of it and go to Disney Land. Babe, I will miss you, be safe hunting I'm sorry that you can't come! I will post pictures when I get back! Also I just wanted to add a little tid bit to not leave out my husband and my parents and tell them how much I love and appreciate all of them very much for all they do for me and thanks Wade for working so hard to support us, I love you! :)

Hello Everyone! I recently got a new job medical assisting at a Family Practice Office in Draper, and the transition has been really good, lots of training and having to come out of my comfort zone though. I have learned a lot though and am doing things I never thought I could do so it has been a neat experience. I really needed the change, and this opportunity came for a new job, but I miss my old friends at the pediatric office, but I am making new friends and I hope all goes well! It really has been a fun summer spending time with our families and friends. Last weekend we got to go camping at Lodge Pole with the Peacock family. We had fun with the little cousins playing some volleyball, and just hangin with everyone around camp. We also went on a very pretty hike and carved our name in a tree up on the mountain, so now we can show our kids someday.:) I just want to thank my husband for making me love the outdoors, he really has made me appreciate how beautiful our state is, and I love spending time with him doing things we both now love.

The Bell family was so kind to invite us to their cabin in Bear Lake for the 4th. We had such a fun time hanging with their family. Just chillin not having anything particular that we had to do, just having fun with one another. We played some fun games and laughed so hard that my mom and I had some trouble playing Catch Phrase! Ping Pong matches with couples, four-wheelin, the tubes behind the boat, and everything was just a blast! Thanks so much Bell's for having us!!!

Last week I played Princess for a night! A cute couple in my ward asked me to come to their daughters birthday party dressed as a princess for the girls. They were so darling and it was totally worth it seeing their cute faces light up. They had so much fun and so did I! This was there little boy who had to be a part of it all too, he loved the princess puzzle just as much as the little girls did. It was so cute!

Memorial Day Weekend was awesome being with all the fam! We camped at the Pinnacles by Strawberry Resivour for the rest of the weekend. My dad's uncle John let us stay on his property there and it was so fun being with that side of the family. Just so nice to relax and play games. Hope everyone had fun, relaxing Memorial Day weekend's! :)

Wade and I and his Dad and Grandpa all went fishing on Saturday at Fish Creek. It was a great time, but it rained on us the whole time. Our truck got stuck in the muddy dirt road trying to get home! It took us four hours to dig out and go a little further and then get stuck again. It was a steep muddy mountain that was deffinitley not driveable at all! Poor Wade and his Dad, and Grandpa were so darn tired from digging us out for four hours each time we got stuck! We finally made it home when some guys on fourwheelers pulled our truck up the rest of the muddy mountain and got us to the top! We would have never made it alone! Crazy huh!
