She's too cute!

I couldn't resist putting this picture up. This is so Bridget's personality! She's just so fun and so energetic. Of course I'm always so grateful for her, but lately I just can't help but feeling so blessed to have her. I can't believe I get to be with her everyday and watch her learn and grow. I love being a mom!

Our CrAzY Summer!

Hello Everyone! I haven't blogged in forever and I'm sure you were all just dying to know what has been going on in my life right? ; ) Anyway, we had a really fun summer and boy was it crazy! Jake got hired as a full time seminary teacher at Syracuse High School so we moved in to his parent's house while they are still living in Japan. We are still getting unpacked and adjusting but we really appreciate having free rent and tons of room! Thanks Curt and Colleen! So I took tons of pictures of our summer but of course I'm having technical difficulties and can't get them off my camera so I had to steal these pictures from Ethan and my sister-in-law Ashley. Hopefully I can get the rest off my camera soon! So here are just a few fun things we did this summer!

Best parts of this summer:
-Moving
-Stadium of Fire
-Family Reunion with Jake's family
-Ran a half marathon
-Went to Mexico
-My sister-in-law Steph got married to Geoff!
I'm sure I forgot stuff but it was a busy summer! And it was so fun!


Here are some pictures from the Park City Half Marathon we ran with Jake's family. It was actually really fun and so rewarding. We left at 4:30 that morning with our kids and headed to Park City in the freezing cold morning air. We were so lucky to have had 2 of Jake's very responsible cousins there to watch the 3 kids while we ran.











The week before the half marathon we got to go to Mexico with my family and it was so fun! We stayed at a timeshare on a resort and had a blast! We stayed about a minute away from the beach and it was beautiful. We got to snorkel, which was a first for me, we visited Tulum on the LDS Tour, swam and swam and swam, and went to Cozumel. Did I mention how fun it was!? Because it was so fun! Thanks mom and dad!

















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!
