It's Official!!

     Jared and I have the cutest niece and nephews in the whole entire world!!!! This is a tribute to our most favorite kids who we love so much! Jared's sister Heidi has four little ones, Halle who is 5, Cole who just had his 4th birthday today (YAY!), William who is almost 2 (I think) and Andrew who was just born this past April! Then my sister Whitney just has one little guy named Drake who was born on January 28th, which just happened to be the day I was supposed to enter the MTC for the mission I never went on (Way to go J-Rod!). Anyway we both adore these kids, and here are some super cute pics of all the kiddos. . . Ha, I dunno why but I ordered the pictures in order of age. . . probably because I'm a math person or something!

Adorable Halle

Halle loves her crazy Uncle!

Partners in crime?!
Kiddin' they are just cute!

Halle and Cole

Dancin with Cole

Haha, love it!

That is seriously the cutest
face I have ever seen in my life!
(Heidi, I hope our kids are as cute as yours!)

How can you resist that smile?!

This big guy is Drake!

Love that face!

The little thug

Last but definitely not least is

Haha, love that!

    We love these kids so much. The best memory I have of our wedding day is when we walked out of the temple and were greeted very first by Halle, Cole and William, it melted my heart to realize that I was actually their Aunt! Jared and I are pretty lucky to have such amazing families, we love you all!!

Alot About Nothing

     I've been at this desk for almost 8 hours now and I can not force myself to work any longer, so I am taking a 15 minute break where in I will ramble on in the blog. . . Jared and I were reminded that we are both very bad at keeping people up to date in our lives this past week (love you Carolyn!) so I figured I would give an update. 

1- We are still loving our apartment, it just feels like home to us here
2- Jared and I are both very bad at the game Rook, we went and played with some of our friends this past Sunday and we totally got demolished! 
3- Since Jared is obsessed with biking, we have been watching the Tour de France religiously the past couple of weeks. We are both rooting for Lance Armstrong, but it looks like he's not going to be able to pull out the win this year :( it's been fun to watch though, I never thought cycling could be so interesting. . . 
4- We spent a fun 4th of July with my family down in STG. . . Jared and I hiked this really cool canyon by Zions and I almost admitted the fact that it would have been nice to have a pair of Chaco's on that hike, much to my dismay and Jared's pleasure. He insists that I need of pair of Chaco's, but I think they're ugly and my brother-in-law calls them Jesus sandals, so if I ever give in I'll never hear the end of it from him!
5- I have been called to serve in the Primary/Nursery in our ward. . . Yep, I'm the "Music Leader" haha you can all laugh too considering I am not very musically talented. Luckily the kids don't really care! It does make for some pretty great cheap entertainment. . . One of the little guys named Grant (who is 3 by the way) taught me how to do the Disco, "up to the sky, down to the ground"  he had learned it from some TV show, straight up hilarious though!
6- We went and saw the new Harry Potter movie and it was AWESOME! I wish I had a broomstick, it'd be much easier then driving in Provo
7- Jared and I discovered The Dollar General! If we ever need new cleaning supplies, bathroom supplies etc. we will be going there!
8- Jared still makes the bed much better then I do, but I am getting better. . . A couple times ago I even straightened the sheets out before I tugged the comforter up!
9- We are leaving on our cruise in three and a half weeks, I can't wait till August 17th!! 
10- I got the wedding band soldered onto my engagement ring. . . it is beautiful! Plus they re-plated the white gold, so it pretty much looks brand new! 

    Well as you can see we lead a fairly boring life. . . yep boring! If anything fantastic happens I will post it asap. Oh man, I almost forgot, Guitar Hero 5 comes out in September and you can bet your money that we will be buying it!!! Oh man I'm so stoked! We checked out the playlist online and it looks promising! Haha I know we're (and when I say "we're" I really mean "I'm") pathetic but it's so fun!

Changed Layout

I don't know why but I was in the mood to try something different with our blog. . . so hopefully it looks good a little more "cute" or something like that :) I realized after I switched out our main title picture thingy that it might be a little weird to have a kissing picture as the first thing you see, but I really think that picture is cool and it fits right into the new color scheme. Is it okay to have that picture there??
