Happy Birthday Jake and Bridget!


We've had an exciting past few weeks! Jake turned 26, Bridget turned 1, and.....Jake got hired as a full-time seminary teacher! He's worked so hard the past year and a half and I'm so proud of him! Good job Jake! We don't know where we are moving to yet but we'll be sure and let you all know!

Did I mention I'm part Guatemalan? I wish! This
is the great family that my friend Lisa Pack Lindquist
and I stayed with when we went to Guatemala 3 years ago
with our friend Rico. They are here for Rico's graduation and
they came over for a visit. It was so fun!


Bridget and her cute cousin Eden
She's terrified of grass! So was I when I was her age

So I made their birthday cakes, but I really should have
had my sister make them because look at how amazing
her cakes are! She make such pretty cakes!

Spring Break

Last week was Jake's Spring Break so we headed up to Smithfield, UT to visit my cousins Candace and Kevin and their 2 girls. It was a lot of fun! We always have a great time with those guys and we're glad we finally got to go stay with them. While we were there we got to go the the American West Heritage Center to see Baby Animal Days. They had baby ducks, goats, cows, horses, pigs, chickens, bunnies, and even bears. I didn't know how much interest Bridget would have in the animals but she seemed to really enjoy them and so did we! We really had a great time being out in the warm(ish) weather with family and cute baby animals. Here's some pictures from our trip.

Here's the poor duckling that Bridget grabbed by the
beak and almost ripped his head off
She was afraid of every animal besides the chicks,
ducklings, and bunnies

Little piggies!

Easter Time!

Easter was really fun this year...my family came out to spend it with my Dad's side of the family. Wednesday night my parents came and spent the night at our apartment and we watched our favorite tv show LOST for 2 days straight it seemed like. It was so fun! Then Friday night my family watched Bridget while Jake and I went and stayed at the Hyatt Hotel in Salt Lake for our 2 year Anniversary. It was so nice to get away..thanks fam! Saturday Jake, Ethan, and Mer and I got to go to General Conference. That night my dad's family came over and we had pizza and dessert, then later on my family dyed easter eggs. Sunday we got up and watched Conference and then had our traditional Easter Egg Hunt! My parents are so good about keeping up tradition even though we're all growing up and I really appreciate it more and more. I'm excited to do all the fun things with our kids that Jake and I got to do growing up. After the second session we went to my Aunt Sherri and Uncle Dave's for dinner and it was very yummy! Sorry for all the details but it was such a fun few days and I don't want to forget it!

My parents got us all matching outfits

This is Ethan's "picture smile" as my cousin Joslin
puts it...cute huh?


From that...to this!

From that...to this!
Last April I had long blond hair and I could see my hip bones, and in less than 365 days I now have short dark hair and can't even see my feet let alone hip bones!

Dinosaur Bones

Dinosaur Bones
When my mom was pregnant with my little brother Ethan, she showed us the ultrasound picture and my other little brother Bennett was pretty certain it was a picture of dinosaur bones. So here she is, our cute pile of dinosaur bones!! Hopefully she's as cute in real life as she is here!

The best money we ever spent!

The best money we ever spent!
It's been really fun buying stuff for the baby on the way, Jake has especially had fun setting up all the new gadgets that bounce, swing, and sing! We have no room left in our tiny one room apartment but it's all worth it! I'm just hoping she really is a girl because I don't know what we'll do with all this pink stuff if she turns out to be a boy!

Diaper Cake

Diaper Cake
On February 14th my mom, grandma, and sister threw me an awesome baby shower back home in Colorado. It was kind of ironic that the same weekend last year they were throwing me a bridal shower. Anyway, my mom and sister Meredith made me the cutest diaper cake I've ever seen!!

A lovely little sinus infection...

A lovely little sinus infection...
So despite all the other wierd little things that go wrong with me, I never get sick! But for some reason when I went home to Colorado, I got the worst sinus infection I've had in so long! Being pregnant I can't take any medication so I had to resort to..well just take a look!
