Uncle Jordan's visit

My brother Jordan and his girlfriend Kristine came down to visit us for the BYU vs. UNLV football game. We had lots of fun, the boys just absolutely loved the attention. Jordan bought the boys BYU t-shirts which was fun, of course Justin wore a UNLV shirt and cheered for them in a crowd of BYU fans, but it made for a fun game. jack did really well at the game and then he slept through the whole 2nd half. Las night after they had left, Jack went over and was building with his legos. When we told him it was time to say prayers he said, "I don't want to go to bed, Lincoln can go to bed and I will build with my legos and wait for Jordan and Kristine to come home". Its a good thing they are going to Disneyland this weekend so we could advert his attention to that, because he was pretty upset when we had to explain to him that Jordan and Kristine didn't live here and weren't coming back for a long time!

New Shoes

I just love buying the boys tennis shoes for the winter. Ever since the first year we went and Jack's feet were too thick for the cheap shoes, I cannot buy them generic shoes. I guess I am a snob in that way. There is something about tennis shoes that are they same as the adults but so small. What can I say I love mini things!

Conference at the Patrick's

Can you tell we loved conference this last weekend? Something about it just makes me sleep, and those who know me know I don't fall asleep easily. My friend put it good, it is the peacefulness that makes you sleep. And if you are thinking, wow, she looks really tan...maybe even orange....Well I have one week before my cruise and gosh darn it I am going to make every last bit of that tanning pass last. Because I know it will be a really long time before I am tan again.

Apparently I need to start buying band aides at Costco. Jack has been faking a lot of injuries lately. This is how he came downstairs the other day. He walks down and says, "Mommy I really have a lot of owies". When I took them out later that day, the ones in his hair were like ripping out his hair. He started crying and said, "My hairs all gone". I had to take him to a mirror to assure him that he still had some hair left.

Playhouse Disney Live

Last night we went to the "Playhouse Disney Live" show. The boys had a lot of fun. It even kept Lincoln's attention for the most part. We went with our good friends the Christensens so that is who you see in the pictures.

Spelling and Grammar

Okay, so I realize I am not the best with spelling and grammer in my posts, so apolagies to all who care, I will try to do better at using spell check. We are getting ready to go to Playhouse Disney, the Live show, I am so excited to see the boys reactions. We will be posting pictures shortly. Happy Conference watching to all!

5 Years!!!

This week we had our 5 year anniversary.....I can't believe it's only been that long. I got tagged with this a couple of times so I thought it would be fun to do it on our anniversary.

Where did you meet your husband?
Justin and I met at a church dance when I had just turned 17 and Justin was 15, almost 16. I was kind of seeing this other guy...but at the same time I noticed Justin at every dance. (These were dances put on in like a basement nightclub, by a member of the church....but were not actually put on by the church...but basically a church dance.) Well the guy that I was seeing left this particular dance early,a nd Justin took advantage of that!

What was the first thing you said to your husband?
Well he asked me to dance so I guess the first thing I said to him was "yes". We didn't talk much during the dance, we danced pretty close and I think both of us could tell we really liked eachother. I asked him to dance the next song just so he would know I was interested.

Where was your first date?
We went with a group to the movies, We saw "Dante's Peak".

Did you have a long courtship/Engagement?
Well we dated for 2 years, then I graduated highschool and moved to Provo, then during the summers when I would go home and after Justin graduated we would be together. So including writing on our missions We were pretty much together for 5 years. We were engaged two months after our missions and married 2 months after that.

Where did you get engaged?
We were visiting Justin's sister in Florida. We were snokling at Destin Beach. I decided that I wasn't a huge fan of snokling so I went and sat on the beach. Justin swam up to me and said, "Look at the cool shell I found" It was the ring, he had been snokling with it in his pocket.

Where did you get married?
We got married in the Oakland Temple, October, 3, 2002

Where did you honeymoon and how was it?
So much fun we went to Hawaii, we went to the Poynisian Cultural Center, on a Dinner Cruise and just hung out at the beach. it was so fun and in two weeks we are going on a Cruise through Mexico, I like to consider that our sencond Honeymoon!!!!
