Baby Shower Bonanza!

I can most definitely say I've never felt more spoiled and loved in my whole life!! Thank you so much to my Mom, Mimi, Megan, and my ward for throwing me such fun and beautiful baby showers! I received some of the cutest and most incredible gifts!! Chelsea Rose is lucky to be coming into a world with so many caring people around her. I couldn't have asked for more love and support. She truly has so many wonderful and great examples to follow. I want to make a tribute to all the wonderful women in my life who have been role models to me in every aspect of my life: My Gram and Grandma Janet, My Grandma Wood and Grandma Gibbons, My Mom and Mother-in-law (thanks for showing me how to be a great Mom!), my sisters and sisters-in-laws, my many amazing Aunts, my Young Women and Church leaders, and the countless others who I have looked to for strength and learning. I am so blessed to be surrounded by so many righteous and amazing women. Thank you for showing me how to love and to be loved, how to sacrifice, how to overcome adversity, how to be so kind and caring, how to love my husband, how to be a daughter of God, and much , much more . . . Thank you from the bottom of my heart. I hope I can share with my little girl all the things I have learned from you!

BYU Football Mania!

Michael and I went to the BYU football game this last Saturday against TCU. Okay, okay. Although, it didn't go exactly like we all hoped it would Michael and I still felt like winners!! It was so much fun to spend some time together at my Alma Mater!

Mike & Katie Shepherd-For all Eternity!

My sister, Katie, is married!! She married Michael Shepherd on September 8, 2009 in the San Diego Temple (they both dreamed of being married in the San Diego Temple ever since they were little--way before they even knew each other). Following their sealing, they had a luncheon at Mimi's Cafe. Then, a week later, they help a reception at Wadley Farms in Lindon, UT. It was a BEAUTIFUL reception!! Pictured above is the card I made Mike & Katie for their wedding. The pictures on the front are the pictures they sent out with their wedding announcement--they are an adorable couple!! We are SOOO happy for them. They now happily reside in Provo, UT.

The Adventures of Island Park

Michael and I stayed in Island Park at Gram's Cabin for a weekend getaway. My friend, Corinne Packard Hoskin, was getting married in Rexburg and we thought we'd attend the reception. However, our plans were disrupted by the fact that I forgot the wedding invitation with the address--we drove around Rigby, ID for about 2 hours trying to find the reception. We even resorted to following cars with people that were dressed in Sunday Clothes (which worked for the most part--we found a wedding reception, but it just wasn't hers)! After that we headed back to Island Park to roast marshmallows and eat s'mores!! The next morning we were watching a relaxing 'Flick when a BAT (flying rodent) came flying downstairs! Michael had me hide in the bathroom while he tried to coax it outside (I didn't want to miss out on all the fun, so I dressed in a big coat and hat, Michael was wearing sheets--it was hilarious--we didn't want to get any diseases). The bat flew back upstairs into a closet. Michael covered the closet with another sheet and was going to turn on the light so it would fly out and we could catch it and take it outside. I wanted to check how the lights turned on in the closets so I tested it in the other closet, a few seconds later the bat flew out and went downstairs--and finally found its way outside! HOORAY--you could call us the Bat Team (hurry Michael, to the Bat-mobile)! We sure loved spending time together, especially away from all the hustle and bustle of daily life. We also got to visit Jenna and her family in Rexburg (my best friend from High School), feed fish and muskrats at Big Springs (pictured above), attend church at the A-frame, and go for a small hike through the forest. Michael is my best friend. We had so much fun--I am so happy to be with him for eternity!

Jenny's 21st Birthday!

Thank you to everyone who celebrated my 21st birthday!  Michael hosted a barbecue for me that evening  (with both sides of our family)--we had over 30 people there.  I love all the baby stuff, maternity clothes, baby toys, and more . . . Thank you!!  

Michael surprised me on Saturday morning with an early birthday present . . . A Canvas Picture of a Mother and Baby Giraffe for our Nursery!  He created the picture himself--amazing!!  I am so blessed to have Michael in my life; I love him so much.  After that he took me to IHOP for breakfast-DELICIOUS-and that night we went to Hollywood Connection where we ate dinner, saw Night at the Museum 2, played miniature golf and shared a brownie sundae!  It was my best birthday ever!!

Our Trip to Washington

Our family took a trip up to Washington to visit Brook and Dan, Eliza and Porter (and the Black's new little one on the way)!  We loved spending time with The Black Family and with The Gibbons Family and with The Flinders Family.  We were also able to perform for the Pasco Stake's Youth Conference.  It was such a neat experience!  We were able to give the morningside outdoors and in the mountains.  

We love music and love the Gospel - we are so grateful we were able to share both with the wonderful people in Washington!
