Evie!

Just some cute pictures of Evie because I like to show her off!

Evie loves to watch and listen to Jacob sing and play his guitar! She will just sit and intently listen and she gets excited and will start kicking her legs.


Here is Evie with the flowers Jacob bought me for my birthday!



We like to go on walks so we went to visit Dad at the school! I love her little snow out fit her Aunt Alysha and Renee bought for her. Her arms don't quite fill it out so it kinds of looks like I am just carrying around a doll :)


She loves her Daddy!



So we have found that Evie loves her room! She is always so happy when we go in there! Thanks to my mom and all her hard work sewing everything and helping me pick out the fabric! It is so worth it to see how much she loves all the bright colors.

So about two weeks ago I was letting Evie have some belly time and unexpectedly she rolled over! I thought it was a fluke but later that day she did it again but then when Jacob came home she wouldn't do it any more so I thought it was a fluke twice. Today she proved she could do it again. I put her down and she was there for about two seconds and then she rolled over. I kept putting her on her belly and she rolled over 5 or 6 times so we finally got it on video!

Well to make a long post short....we love our little girl!

Jacob's Triathlon

So Friday night we are hanging out with some friends and someone for some reasons mentions there is a mini triathlon at the school the next day and the entry fee is only $5 so what does Jacob do? He enters of course....no prior training....the sole goal of just finishing....and what happens?....

He takes first in the swim for his heat.....
Then he gets to the bike and....it was close but he again comes in first.

Next was the run, and the only one who beat him was this guy who...well lets say he looked like he had been training for something like this for quite some time. Evie and I got to go and cheer him on and we were so proud of him. He completed a 300 yard swim, a 5 mile bike ride and a 3k run in 34 minutes and 17 seconds. Remember this was with no training...pretty awesome if I say so myself! There is another one in February that is a little longer so I think he is going to try train for it and compete again!

Still standing at the finish line!

Blessing Evie

We blessed Evie on January 1st in Sandy. It was a really neat experience and made me appreciate having the gospel in our lives even more than I could imagine! It was amazing to hear the beautiful blessings Heavenly Father has in store for our little Evie. We can already see a little of her personality but things said in the blessing let us see it even more and realize the incredible potential she has. I'm so grateful Jacob is a worthy priesthood holder and was able to give her a name and a blessing. I am also so grateful for all the great men who stood in the circle, it is so reassuring to know Evie has so many wonderful examples of what good men are so she can make a wise decision when she has to choose a husband to take care of her. I am especially grateful for all her grandpas and papas who would already do anything for Evie! It was pretty amazing to look around and see all of the people surrounding her and know that will always have people to look to and rely on. Thank you so much for everyone who came and for everyone who she gets to look up to!

Christmas Break

We had a great a great Christmas break! It was nice to not have to worry about school for a little while and just spend time together as a family. Jacob's parents and brother came home from Hawaii and his grandparents flew in from Oklahoma. It was the first time any of them got to meet Evie so it was really fun. We rented a house up in Idaho next to some hot springs and spent a few days before Christmas out there. We had a good time, relaxing, playing games, and spending time with family! We also took some family pictures and Alysha and Renee bought all the guys black sweaters to wear and all of the girls got pink scarves. Here are a few of the pictures we took!




It was freezing out side so we had Evie wrapped up tight and took the blanket off for just enough time to snap a picture then we ran back inside :) We took some more inside so we could have more time.







We did Christmas at Jacob's parents house and had a great time, then we went down to Moab to spend some time with my family. Jasmine and the kids were down so it was great to see them! We have a great video of Jade doing a cute dance and Daxton pulling out his tooth by tying a string to it and a door and then slamming the door shut. I would share the videos but I'll have to ask Jasmine first or maybe she will put them up on her blog! Anyways it was a great time to see so much family and have a break from school!
