4 Things You May Not Know About Me:

  • I love love love back massages and beg my husband to give them to me… a little too often I think.
  • I like to sing and play the piano, even though I’m not great at either one.
  • I like pretty much everything there is to eat-not picky
  • I almost got hanged by the rope tow at a ski resort when I was around 10(?). My scarf wrapped around the rope and when I went to get off it yanked me back and onto the ground and dragged me up the hill. People were yelling at the worker-person to shut it off but he couldn’t hear. I was getting close to the part of the tow where it wraps around and heads back down-so I would have been cut off at the neck. Then somehow (The Lord watching over me) it shut off. I started to black out and then our bishop who was skiing too came and lifted me up and I came back. I didn’t want to ski for a long time afterwards, but now I love it…just watch your scarves on the rope tow!

How we're doing...

Ok, so things are going pretty good. We have been very busy since Maggie was born. We decided to go spend the 4th with my family in Fairfield. There was a family reunion going on so it was crazy and there were SO many people there. It was fun though. I skipped out on a few activities to rest, which was really nice. It was great to see Kade again. I missed him so much and hated being away from him by the end of it! He seemed so BIG when I finally saw him again. After that weekend we came back and my mom stayed a few nights with us-which was really nice.
Having 2 kids is definitely hard! Naps seem to be hard to come by! It is great to have them both though. I do feel like this time around I kind of know what to expect, so I am handling it all a lot better than last time. I do love sleep, but I am not so upset over losing it as I was when Kade was little. We took Maggie to her 2 week check-up the other day and she now weighs 9 lbs 15 oz. I forgot to mention that in birth she fractured her left clavicle so we had to pin her arm down for 10 days. At her check-up the pediatrician said that she had formed new bone and that it was ok not to pin it anymore. We were glad that it wasn’t a big problem! Here are some pics of the fam…

By the way, this dress Maggie has on was given to her by her Aunt Christena and it is my FAVORITE dress. I think it is so cute! Girl clothes are so fun to have!


Some kids started a fire on the mountain by the University. It was right by the ‘M’ that is on the mountain and has burned a little under 400 acres. It was kinda crazy to see it because it is so close to us. We took some pics of the whole thing from our apartment lawn.
