Four Hours of Fun

From the day we moved into our house, we have been looking for the perfect corner hutch in the kitchen. It had to be at least 5.5 feet tall, an actual corner hutch, not just a flat back one, just the right color, and have the cute paneling on the back. No wonder it took us 9 months to find it! But, after many trips to mainstream stores, and shabby chic shops, we found our PERFECT corner hutch! I will have you know that we put it together by ourselves, and it took 4 HOURS! This thing was ridiculous, and the directions were anything but simple. But, we prevailed, and we love our new labor of love!

This was the first time we have put anything big together, and it was quite interesting. I have always been stumped when people ask me my advice on getting married. I have always wanted to have something profound and different to say. And now I have found something I think is really good advice. Build something together...you learn a lot of interesting things about each other. Who will take the lead...who can do different aspects of the task better...who will be the first to drop a four letter word when your had gets smashed! It was quite a hilarious learning experience.

Our masterpiece!

Wedding Bells on Valentines Day

On February 14th, 2009, our dear friend Ashley Engar tied the knot! She and Dennis were married in the Salt Lake Temple and then had their reception at The Gathering Place. I loved spending the day of love with all my dear friends and being in the temple watching Ash get sealed...what a great day! She looked stunning!

Snow Day

We spent a Saturday with Ash and Jake up at the house in Park City....I love it up there! Here are a few pics of our day...

Soaking in some rays in our lawn chairs!

Look closely and you will see Norman on top of us! His first sledding experience. He was not sure about it at first, but after his first ride, we could not keep him off the tube!

Normans new favorite toy!

These are the COOLEST snow toys ever. They were my grand fathers but they still work like a charm. They are a bit squirrly, but you get the hang of it, and they get going pretty fast!
