Birthday Dinner

For Sunday dinner, we celebrated my birthday. Lin made a great dinner and we had strawberries and angel food cake. YUM!


Time for presents!


Jarad got me some shorts I've been wanting for our trip to Mexico.


Super Mario Brothers! I played the old school game so much as a kid and was so excited to get it!


I needed alot of air to blow out all the candles.


Sienna and I enjoyed our angel food cake and strawberries.


Jarad bought me three dozen roses for my birthday. They smell wonderful and are so beautiful!

Birthday Extravaganza!

Saturday was my 28th birthday. And Jarad made sure it was a fantastic day! It ended up being a whole day of celebrating and I loved every minute of it!

We started the day at the Denver Temple with my family. It was great to be there with my parents and brother and sister-in-law. Afterwards, we went to Olive Garden (one of my favs!) for lunch. I sadly realized afterwards that I had forgotten to take any pictures! But it was so fun to spend time with my family on my birthday!

After my family headed south again, Jarad and I went over to a huge mall and just wandered around and looked at lots of fun stores like Restoration Hardware, Crate & Barrel and Pottery Barn. Then we headed north and met up with Amber & Deahna, my sisters-in-law at Red Robin for dinner.


Yum Red Robin!


Happy Birthday to me!

The whole day I was gearing up for a surprise the Jarad and Deahna had planned for the evening. I had no idea where we were going or what we were going to do. But after dinner, when we drove into the parking lot, I knew! Dave & Busters! It is like Chuck-E-Cheese but for adults! We had so much fun playing games and collecting thousands of tickets!


YEAH! Such a great surprise!


Jarad & I racing away!


Deahna spun the wheel and won lots of tickets!


We played the Wheel of Fortune token game forever! Amber really raked it in!

Jarad kept playing this jumping game and it was so funny, I just had to get it on film!

Spring Snow Day

Yesterday afternoon and into the evening, a spring storm came down on Colorado! We got about 9 inches and luckily, a SNOW day from work today!


This is what we woke up to outside our front door.


Sadie loves the snow! And bounded around in it while I shoveled the walk.


This is a pic of our front door and the back of our garage. It was really windy and blew the snow all over!


Jarad's poor car...luckily, the sun came out this afternoon and it is slowly getting melted out!


Phew! Shoveling is hard work!


Finally done with the walk...a pathway to heaven...a SNOW day at home together!

A Nose in Need...


Deserves Puff's indeed!


What a mess! Sadie apparently thinks her nose needed our puffs!


Good thing she is so stinkin' cute! And loves to snuggle! Love our baby!

Jar's Attempt

Jarad loves angel food cake so last week when we went grocery shopping we picked up a mix and he decided to make it himself!


We didn't have the right pan, so the cake overflowed everywhere! What a mess!


But the cake still tasted good! Nice job Jar!

Saturday of Sun

Yesterday was such a nice day and we had to get out and enjoy it! We took Sadie for a walk and didn't even need coats!


Sadie loves being outside and exploring all the plants and surroundings! Excuse her hair...she really needs a haircut and a bath! But we still think she is the cutest pup!


We are SOOO ready for Spring!

We Had A Visitor!

This week we were lucky enough to spend an evening with our friend Michelle and her daughter Fiona. We were sad that Brian couldn't come too, but it was fun to have them at our place for an evening. We had dinner and chatted all evening. Fiona provided some entertainment and is getting so big!!


Michelle and Fiona


Fiona loved Sadie and they hung out together most of the night! They even colored together.


Two pals! Sadie & Fiona

Thanks for driving up to see us Michelle!

Party with the Neices

Our two nieces who live in Reno came out to visit for a few days and all of us went out to Chuck-e-Cheese. The girls had pizza, we snuck in McDonald's and they played lots of games and won tons of tickets. Jarad and I had our sketch done, like we do every time we go.


Aleah playing the game!


Sienna and Mya spending their last tokens.

It was so good to see the girls and get to spend some time with them. We wish they lived closer so we could see them more often.
