This week has been a busy one. Michael's Work, Precision Concrete Cutting, had their Franchise Retreat this week.

At the end of the week a few of them went up into the high Uinta's and got to go snow cat skiing.

We all got to go to dinner. Even me, the wifey.

And these are a few shots of their meetings. Long week, but a good week. It is always good to see those people that I hear about all the time.

Dance Recital

Our Niece's, Skylar and Nevada had a dance recital at the Little Gym last week. Skylar takes a little tumbling class and Nev takes a Ballet, Tap, Bar, and Beam class. They love going to their classes and were so excited to show us their moves.

Michael and I got new boards and gear for christmas so we had to go try it out. We went up to the Canyons! Love Canyons!

Jazz Game

Jazz vs. Hawks

Michael and I went to the Jazz game last night. Mike's work has 9th row season tickets and we got to take two of them last night. We went to dinner at Ruth's Cris and then we headed over to the game. It is amazing how much more fun it is when you are so close like that. You feel like you are a part of it. Even though it was a crappy game and the Jazz totally sucked it up... we still had lots of fun.

Happy Birthday Nevada

Nevada turned 5!

Nevada celebrated her 5th birthday today. She celebrated it with hamburgers and french fries and cake and ice cream! All by her request. She got the Barbie Winnebago and was pretty stoked on it. She is growing up so fast!

Merry Christmas

Merry Christmas to all!

We had an awesome Christmas this year. It, as always, was full of busy days leading up to it but always brings such joy and happiness. Michael and I got each other new Snow Boards and Boarding gear this year. We were lucky enough to get a Pro Form from Steve this year so we got a lot of stuff for pretty cheap. Michael is also taking a trip to Alaska to go Heli Skiing with the guys from work in March, so he needed a powder board to go do that. So I told him, if he gets a new board... so do I! And that's that. We always spend Christmas Eve up at my parents house. Michael, my Dad and I went up boarding during the day on Christmas Eve and then went to my parents and had dinner and played games and did our gift exchange amongst the children. Christmas morning we went over to Mike's parents and did breakfast and the Duke's came over as well. Then we went and visited grandparents and ended the day with my family.
Skylar is obsessed with Woody. I also made both of the girls those little dresses that Skylar is sporting in this picture.

All in all it was a great Christmas. I hope your Holidays were filled with happiness.

It has been too long!

Sorry peeps! I totally have sucked it up at posting lately. Just to do a little catch up... Our Thanksgiving was great! We try to alternate every other year between families since both of ours are so close. This year we ate with my family, at my parents house in Highland. We ate and then went and saw the latest Harry Potter. Michael loves Harry Potter. He was pretty stoked to see it. We actually saw it the week before as well with Michael's mom and Kristen and Nevada. So we got to see it twice, and it was just as good the second time. After the movie we headed over to The Lamb's house to hang out and eat dessert. It was a nice Thanksgiving. I also got the entire weekend off, so I was pretty stoked.

School is going well for Michael. He had a pretty heavy load this semester and is just trying to finish up finals right now. He will have another heavy load next semester and will then finish up in the fall semester with just one more class and his capstone. And FINITE! So stoked dude!

This last weekend was my 23rd birthday. I got the weekend off and Michael and I just kind of hung out all day Saturday and then we went to The Happy Sumo for dinner on Saturday night with my family. Sunday, which was my actual birthday, Michael and I decided that we were not going to go teach primary and we were going to go snow boarding. So we did, we went up to Canyons and spent the day in the snow. It was an awesome day for boarding. Mike got a season pass up there this year so he will be up there a lot and I was lucky enough to get hooked up with a free day pass by Steve. Later that day we went and ate dinner over at the Lamb's house and had cake and ice cream and opened presents. We celebrated Mr. Maddox's birthday as well on Sunday because the poor little guys birthday is on Christmas. So, we just decided Maddox and I would combine birthdays since we both got the shaft.

The cute little Duke children came to trick or treat at our house. Kristen made all of their costumes! Can you believe it!? She is the best mommy every. They turned out super cute! Nev was Cinderella, Skylar was a purple fairy, and Maddox was a Lion! We love those stinkin cute little kids!

Cute Shae was a Fairy
Cute little Carley... she just looked cute.

Olsen Halloween Party

Our friends, Steph and Justin Olsen, had a Halloween Party at their house on Friday. It was a fun night. It is not very often that we all get together to see each other so it was way fun to catch up with everyone. We had yummy halloween treats and the boys rode out on the jumps in the back yard and played rock band. Super fun night! Thank you Olsen's!

Smoke Detector

Last night, Michael, Scout, and I are sound asleep in our bed and all of a sudden the smoke detector in the hallway goes off. It was 2:00 am and those things are fetching loud! Woke us all right up, Scout is barking, Mike is running around trying to figure out what to do, and I am just sitting there thinking we are dying. Can someone please answer me this.... Why in the crap do those stupid things only go off in the night!? Even if it just beeps because it needs the battery changed, it starts in the middle of the damn night. Holy Crap! Needless to say, it was a long night after that.

Labor Day Weekend

Finally we got a weekend off together! For Labor Day weekend we went camping with our friends Zack and Christi. We went up AF canyon up high by Mineral Basin. We found the most perfect camping spot right by the river. We hung out, went on a hike and cooked yummy food! It was so nice and relaxing and Scout was in heaven. He was freezing cold the entire time but he loved exploring.

School is in session.

Mike started back to school last week. In a desperate attempt to finish up he last few credits, Mike is taking 17 credits this semester. That's a lot! So if he seems non existent over the next few months... that would be why. He will hopefully have just one more semester after this and then we can say goodbye to school. Forever. Hopefully.

Craft Lake City

Saturday August 14, 2010

marked the day of my very first event. I have had so many people telling me that I need to start selling all of my creations. So, finally I just went for it. Michael and I went to Craft Lake City last year, just for fun, and thought it was so cool. So, I looked into it and decided that if I was going to do an event, this would be the one to do for my first time. I sold purses, headbands, flower hair clips, and broaches. It was such a fun day. We were right in the middle of everything and had a clear view of all of the great bands that played. It was so fun to get to talk to all of the artists around us. So many cool people. I got lots of positive feedback from my products and we didn't do too bad either. And let me just say, thank you to Mike. He is such an awesome husband. He came up there with me, helped me unload, set up, and sat there with me for 10 hours! Isn't he amazing!? I had lost of support from family and friends. Thank you all so much for coming up!
This was my booth. Turned out pretty good for as little preparation as I had. Steve made the AMAZING purse rack! So stoked on it Steve! Thank you!
This was just kind of our isle. It went down pretty far and there was an entire upper level as well.
And my amazing husband.

AF Canyon

Sunday August 8, 2010

We went up American Fork Canyon with the Duke's and Shaun and Diane. We all made tinfoil dinners before and brought them up and cooked them in a fire. Thanks to Shaun. He some how always gets the task of fire maker and cooker. He is just so great at it! Or he is just the Dad. We had an awesome evening though. Diane brought up her dutch oven and made a cake for everyone. It was so yummy! She made it out of fresh berries from their garden. The park ranger came around and gave the little girls a little ranger book. They were loving it. Those two little girls are so adventurous. Nev had a few spills but she is a tough cookie.
