Yay for healthy snacks!

26 April 2011

I just made this:

It is YUM.  Next time I make it, I think i'll add 7 instead of 9 cups of cereal to it tho b/c it makes A LOT.


25 April 2011

I braved up and got my hair highlighted.  I'm normally one who hates change, and gets nervous about what other people will think  (especially when I was in highschool, I was the WORST) but all of the sudden, I don't really care anymore, and it feels great!

Jared and I can't decide.  Is he the little piggy who went to the market? or the little piggy who had roast beef? Because we defintely know he isn't- the little piggy who stayed home, had none, or went wee weee wee wee all the way home, because rolling over is about as far as he can go.

He Lives

24 April 2011

Jesus is the Christ, and I know that He lives! He lived a perfect life, and atoned for my sins. He is the Savior of the world, my Lord and Redeemer. Happy Easter!

First taste of baby food

23 April 2011

Kyler (5 months old) finally had his first taste of baby food!  He didn't really know what to do with it once it was in his mouth...  :)

Moved In!!!

20 April 2011

Well, we are finally moved in. (special thanks to grandma and grandpa for all of their help!!) I can't believe i'm saying this, but it feels GREAT to be back in Rexburg. Yes, Rexburg is just a small college town, BUT.... we no longer have to worry about our neighbors breaking into our car. We no longer hear gun-shots out our window when we are trying to fall asleep. Nobody begs us for money when we are stopped at a redlight, or when we walk to our car outside of walmart. I can take Bauer out at night and not be scared! and the list goes on and on... I mean we LOVED living in Cali, we really did! but I guess Rexburg has it's ups too. 

Anyways, here are some pics from our last few days.
Kyler and both of his grandmas
My brother in-law Bruce introduced us to mustard grilled cheese sandwiches.  One word: YUM

Kyler in the bathtub.  He went swimming for the first time in a pool this week and LOVED it!!

Meet Ruger.  Uncle Mark's new baby.

Can you say Chick Magnet??  My mom said "Mark will take Ruger on a walk in the park, a cute girl will walk by with her dog.  Their leashes will get tangled...and the rest is history!!!" LOL

My niece Charley, She is getting so big!
 We had so much fun spending time with our family. We will miss you ALL.

I saw these quotes at various places around Utah today, and they made me smile. Hope they make you smile too!

"First God created man. Then he created a better idea."

"Money can't buy happiness but it can buy marshmellows, which are kinda the same thing."

"A family is a little world created by love."

"Christ is the center of our home, a guest at every meal, and a silent listener to every conversation."

Happy 100th Post!!

09 April 2011

I have been in the blogging world for just over a year and a half, and today I finally reached my 100th post!

We'll be here for the next week or so until our apartment is ready in Rexburg. Lucky us we have tons of family that live in Utah! It has been fun getting to catch up and spend time with them.

Here are my niece and nephew putting their heads under Kyler's car seat cover to look at his night light with him. So cute!

Kyler LOVES this night light. We love it too! We got it from Ikea... The colors change, there is a cord to charge it with (so that means no batteries!)and it is made out of rubber, so it doesnt break when you drop it! Whenever it is time for bed, we put him in his crib and turn this nightlight on and he falls right to sleep

Here are a few pics from this week:

Kyler fell asleep in his cousin's arms during Family Night
Jared fell asleep in Bauer's furry paws at his parents house.
Bauer is now 82lbs....and still thinks that he is a lap dog

We have been eating like Kings thanks to all of our family

First time wearing sunglasses at Auntie Mere's house

 Happy 100th post to me!

Goodbye Cali

03 April 2011

Yesterday was our first day since moving from California and it was SOOO warm... like 80 degrees! We were thinking, "Maybe weather outside Cali won't be so bad afterall". Then we woke up this morning to 4 inches of snow! Seriously?! How does it go from 80 degrees to snowy?! Oh well, we can't complain too much. We enjoyed good weather all winter long. Here is a video from our time in California:

Last few days of life in California

02 April 2011

Dear California,

You have just about emptied our wallet, but you have been good to us.  You have served your purpose of providing a beautiful place to live while Jared completed his internship.  We will miss you, and we hope we will be back soon.


Dinner on Pier 39 with Jared's parents

Have I mentioned how cute my baby is lately?

Grandma and Grandpa helped us with the move :)

Our last picture taken in Cali

I made a family home movie of a few of our memories in California, but i'm still adding the finishing touches.  So stay tuned for the next post featuring The Cali Movie...................  Be Excited.
