I indeed have the sweetest husband!! .... Andrew calls me from work on Friday and says "I have a surprise for you... It'll be tomorrow (saturday) and its up north and will probably take all evening." Of course in my mind I get all anxious and excited and try to think of whatever this surprise may be! I kept begging him for hints but he held strong not to ruin the surprise! Finally it came time to head "north"... We ate at the Salt Lake Burger Co. in Sandy then headed to the tracks where we parked our car and took the trolley to Downtown Salt Lake. The anticipation was killing me! I wanted to know where on earth we were headed!!! I began to guess hoping that I would figure it out! He told me no, no, no, and nope! I began to catch on as all these cute little girls were getting on the trolley dressed in their disney princess and thats when I remembered, DISNEY ON ICE is in town!! I turned to Andrew and asked. "Are you taking me to Disney on Ice?!" with a big smile on my face! He then once again told me no. Ha the little bugger was pulling my leg!!! We arrived at the Energy Solutions Arena where he pulled out 2 tickets for Disney on Ice! I was SOOO excited... ha you would think I'm 5 years old again :) He knew I had been wanting to go, but I just came to the conclusion that it wasn't going to happen this year. What a SWEET surprise!! I loved it and enjoyed every second of being there with my husband right beside me singing the Disney songs as the characters danced on the ice! Haha... really he was singing at the top of his lungs :) Baby... i love you!! Thanks for a night I'll always remember!

My husband and Love of my life has been going through the hiring process at Midvale Fire Department. It's been QUITE the process over the last few months!! After receiving letters in the mail informing us he's past the 1st and then the 2nd and then the 3rd parts of testing, we FINALLY received the last letter!!! (Now in the beginning there were tons and tons applying for this job, and people were getting eliminated after each process) But in the end... Andrew MADE the hiring list, which means.. eventually he will get hired which is fantastic!! He is still working hard to complete the Paramedic program and will finish by next spring around april/may. So we are crossing our fingers and hoping the hiring comes before then! Good job babe and thanks for ALL your HARD work!

Good ol' Rexburg

I had the opportunity to make a trip to Rexburg last weekend to see and visit with some past roommates whom I love dearly! We had a fantastic time together! Poor Jen was super sick from pregnancy, but she was indeed a trooper for spending the day with the girls while feeling poopy! Thanks Jen I love you!! I also met some roommates of my roommates who were wonderful as well! We enjoyed a soccer game in the FREEZING cold... Went to Applebee's for dinner, Chit chatted and caught up on life, watched She's the Man (hilarious!) while painting our nails... Enjoyed Alexis talk and Rachel's musical number in sacrament meeting... and ate yummy buttermilk pancakes! Thanks for a wonderful weekend girls! :)

Little Tyce

I get to hang out with this little boy quite often and I LOVE it! Last night when I was baby sitting him... I noticed he was being very quiet, so I peaked around the corner from the kitchen, as I was making dinner, and this is what I found (pictured below) quiet as can be just looking at story books....
He loves to read books!! :)
As soon as he noticed I was taking a picture... He stood up and reached to hand me the books so I could read to him! I love this little guy... He brings much joy in our home, Andrew and I love it!

Halloween Season!!

The month of October was a fantastic month... it was full of fun and wonderful time spent with friends and family! Here are a few things we did......
Costume party- Andrew's sister Sara and husband Stewart
Everyone LOVED Nacho... everywhere we went we would hear someone yell... NACHOOOO!! and then want their picture taken with him... Andrew had chics crawling all over him! Too bad he's taken by the one and only... Encarnacion! :)
Dinner with friends at P.F. Changs
SLC REAL Soccer game Halloween day with friends Jessica and Garrett
Carving some sweet pumpkins with Amber and Tyce... Glenn was there to support us in our carving pumpkins but was too pooped from all his hard work to carve one of his own.
Attended Savannah's Halloween Harp Recital.. It was totally sweet!

And last but not least... a little update on Andrew's spider, living at the front door of his parents house (and has been for months and months now). It is huge!! and is enjoying life as Andrew feeds him when needed. It was the perfect touch for the scenery at the front door Halloween night. It was out crawling on its web above and too the side as Trick-o-treaters made there way up the stairs for their treat!

Draper Temple

"You are never lost when you can see the temple. The temple will provide direction for you and your family in a world filled with chaos. It is an eternal guidepost which will help you from getting lost in the “mist of darkness.” It is the house of the Lord. It is a place where covenants are made and eternal ordinances are performed."

-Elder Gary E. Stevenson
