I am happy to report that today we are having drywall installed in our basement family room. YEAHHHH. We are so excited to be able to have this space ready to use. As you can see from the pictures we have all new doors and windows in the basement. Our brother in law has insulated, studded, re done the electrical, put new lights in, changed our wood fireplace to gas, etc. It is looking awesome and we are excited for the drywall. Then we just need some paint and carpet and we are ready to go. I have included some new pics and then some old to see where it has come from......

Hey guys, thought I would drop by a little note since it has been FOREVER since my last post. I have been having issues with my camera, therfore no random pics of stuff. Thaddeus and I have both been busy with work and church. We are excited that we have had our brother in law working on our basement and it is coming along quite nicely. I will see if I can get some pics up of the progress this week. We will be really glad when it is finished. Not much new here, the weather is starting to warm up and my plants are starting to come to life. I had surgery in early January and I have been recovering really well. I have been SUPER busy at work hiring lots of poeple for different companies(it has been exciting that we have jobs for people), in this economy. Thaddeus has also been super busy with his work. I am excited to head to Seattle in a couple weeks with my sister for a mini weekend vacation. Besides that not much else is new we have just been spending time with family and friends. I would love to hear from you so drop me a note!!!

We were able to go to Moab last weekend with some friends and family. It was a bit chilly but we were still able to get in some hiking. We had a lot of fun.

Thaddeus and I were commenting this morning how beautiful our backyard is now with all the snow....

We were sitting in our kitchen looking out the back window. Although sometimes I am not the happiest with the snow, God sure did send us a beautiful reminder of His pureness and grace, "washing us white as snow".


I was able to decorate two trees this year. One at my house....and one at my work....

Weather for Ogden, UT
3°F Feels like -8°F

Why do I feel like I am in Minnesota again? Seriously this cold weather has got to stop. When I started my car this morning it was begging for me to warm up the air outside! In the words of my dear friend Amy from Minnesota OOOOOOOOffffta, (or however it is actually spelled).
