COPA Recitals

Eva did a musical dance theater class this year at COPA. By the end, you could tell she really did enjoy it, although it was sometimes out of her comfort zone and she really wished she had a friend do it with her. In her Winter concert, they did songs from Meet Me in St. […]

New Cousins!

This Winter we got two new nephews and one new niece! It’s been fun having new babies in the family again, and no… we haven’t gotten the fever yet haha! When my sister-in-law Lacey was in labor, we got to keep her older kids. It was so much fun anticipating with the kids. They were […]

Go Jazz!

The Jazz season is over now and we really had a good time getting to go to so many games! We were really lucky that TJ’s work offered him so many free tickets, it made our date nights this past Winter so much fun. Can’t wait for the next season, although we don’t have cable […]

Christmas in Kentucky

Sometimes it’s hard to have my parents live so far away, but one fun thing is that when we visit at Christmastime, it makes us feel like we get two Christmases! The kids and I flew to Kentucky the day after Christmas. The kids did pretty well on the flight and were excited to see […]

Christmas Shenanigans

Life is BUSY! When I do have free time, I don’t want to get on my computer, but it’s now JUNE and I still haven’t posted about Christmas yet! So I’m going to do my best and remember the details from the past few months since I use this blog as my journal! Christmas Eve […]

Wrapping Up December + Elf on the Shelf Mishap

Probably the coolest hairdo I have ever done on Eva! Eva wrote this letter with the help of her babysitter on night. Needless to say, we have addressed all of the issues this note presented and we have made the proper revisions. I’m pretty sure our babysitter added that last sentence as a hint to […]

Ugly Christmas Sweater Party

We went to an Ugly Christmas Sweater Party last weekend and this was our little number we put together. Our gifts that we brought were an oven mitt (The Office, anyone?) and then coasters that I made out of the host’s funny childhood photo. I laugh whenever I think about it.

Luminaria

We heard over and over from people that Luminaria was amazing and worth the cost, so we finally decided to check it out for ourselves. We loved it. It was freezing, but I felt like we were bundled up enough! It was just so unique, unlike any light show I had ever seen before. They […]

Eva turned 6!

I literally cannot believe that our little Eva is now six. It’s just crazy how quickly time flies. On the morning of her birthday, I took them and her friend Luke to get donuts. Then Eva was excited for school because she would “get a ring pop and a crown.” Eva so wanted a friend […]

Christmas with the Mormon Tabernacle Choir

We lucked out this year and won tickets for the MoTab Christmas concert! We have been several times, but this time was definitely my favorite because the Broadway singer Sutton Foster and narrator Hugh Bonneville (The Earl of Grantham!) were both just incredible. Afterwards we met up with our friends and tried to find a […]
