Baby Cameron


This beautiful baby was born on Saturday evening and it was a pretty big deal at our house. This baby boy is my girls' VERY FIRST cousin! And my first nephew. He officially made me an aunt! We couldn't be more excited for Landan and Stephanie and to welcome this sweet addition to the family!

And because I never, never want to forget what Landan said to announce the birth of his firstborn child, I have to include a screen shot from Jordan's phone:


Colorado for Dennis and April's Wedding


This last weekend we headed to Colorado to attend the wedding celebration of my great Uncle. He found the love of his life at age 58 (the first marriage for both of them!) and we were so happy to join in the festivities. His new bride seems like an AMAZING woman. I'm excited for them and excited for her to join our family.

My aunt Shari did the food for the reception and it was fantastic. They did a full dinner with smoked salmon, kalua pork, and grilled chicken, rice, baked beans, a full salad bar, and cheese plates with bread. It looked beautiful and tasted even better. I made some cookies for the reception but what was even cooler was their wedding cake, that was a train climbing up a mountain.

I loved being there to celebrate April and Dennis and see how blissfully happy they were. I also can't forget to mention that Naomi fell asleep while we were driving to the reception. She stayed asleep as we carried her in, so we laid her on top of a coat on the stage and SHE SLEPT THROUGH THE ENTIRE RECEPTION! She fell asleep at 5 and slept until 5 the next morning!

^^The most perfect quote for the wedding.

^^Reagan brought two Barbies and got them out near the end of the night. All of the little girls in the room seemed to sense it (Barbie Radar) and came to play too.

^^Naomi sleeping on the stage, missing the whole reason why we went to Colorado...

It was a really quick trip but we were able to do a few other fun things while we were there. Our first stop in Colorado after picking up the rental car was Kokoro, my most favorite restaurant in all the land. Saturday morning my mom and I got blowouts at Blondies, and then went thrifting at our favorite place, where I found some great stuff. Annett came down to Colorado to pick up a friend from the airport so we got to see her and Addie and Odin, had lunch at Panera, and also took the girls to play at my Grandma's house, which was a major highlight for them. It was fun making cookies on Friday while my aunts prepped food for the reception, great to catch up with lots of out of town family, and of course we had a great time playing "The Bowl Game" on Saturday after the reception (where the girls obviously won!)

Such a great weekend and such a happy occasion!

Valentines Day


We had a wonderful Valentine's Day this year. Jordan was in charge of our date and he knocked it out of the park. Valentine's Day was on Wednesday this year and since Jordan has Young Men's we decided to go out on Tuesday night. We dropped the girls off at my parents' house and then headed down to Provo. First we stopped at Austan's apartment because Jordan had him pick up one of my favorite treats from the Wilk, a giant rice krispe treat. Then we went to a Hot Pot place for dinner. Neither of us had ever been to a place like that and it was really fun! After dinner we headed to the Provo library to see an exhibit called Wizards of Pop, which was all about how Robert Sabuda & Matthew Reinhart make their amazing pop-up books. It was a fabulous exhibit and right up my alley. It was so cool to see how those beautiful books are made. After the exhibit we went across the street to The Mighty Baker and bought another treat. Then to top off our treats we finished the night at Rockwell Ice Cream.

After reading this post, I decided I wanted to start a little Valentine's Day tradition, but I wanted it to be SUPER simple. Life has been crazy lately, so I didn't want to add to the madness, but still find a way to make it special. I bought a red table cloth, we used all red/pink plates, cups, silverware. I set the table the night before. Jordan and the girls each had a present bag at their spots. The girls each got a book and Jordan got some shoes he had been wanting for a while. We had Eggo waffles with spray whipped cream and red sprinkles. The girls loved it and it was so simple. I think they felt loved. Reagan's book was a 5 minutes Princess bedtime storybook and she was so happy because we had just finished her 5 minutes fairy tale bedtime story book. Over and over she kept saying, "I love my book mom! Thank you!" It was very gratifying.
