Memorial Day weekend

Our friends Jared and Amy and their two little ones, Elyse and Felicity, came to visit us this weekend. We had so much fun seeing them. Their little girls have grown so much since seeing them about a month ago. We are excited as they move on from Denver to their new home. It will be fun to visit them as they set out on their next phase of life. Below is Elyse, cute as ever. You have to love the dimple in her chin, just like her mommy!My sister Natalie also came out to surprise us over the weekend. It was so good to see Natalie. She came out for Thaddeus's swearing in and we never even knew she was coming.

As many of you may know Thaddeus graduated from law school in December, took the bar in February, found out he had passed the bar in April and officially was sworn in to the Utah State Bar to practice law this past Friday. YEAHH he is finally finished. We had a big celebration and of couse a cute cake to go along with it.

Happy Anniversary to me and Thaddeus. It is hard to believe but as of yesterday we have been married for 3 years. Thaddeus sent me these beautiful flowers at work. I was the most excited about the gorgeous vase that they came in. We kept it pretty lowkey since it was the middle of the week but we did go out for a nice dinner last night.


Last weekend we went out to eat with my parents and grandparents at Maddox in Brigham City. My parents took us out for my grandparents and our Anniversary. It was a lot of fun. I had some delicious prime rib and they have some of the best raspberry butter with roles I have ever had.

Attorney at Law

Some of you may have already heard but Thaddeus got a job. He is the newest Associate at the law firm of Farr, Kaufman, Sullivan, Jensen, Medsker, Olds, & Nichols. More commonly referred to in the Ogden area as Farr, Kaufman. We were ecstatic when Thaddeus had more than one job offer in the Ogden area. He is enjoying his job and the fact that he is not having to take the time to commute to Salt Lake. Here is a picture of him hard at work in his office. His office is quite neat with one wall being brick. We bought this oil painting for the wall and it looks quite nice in the office. We are going to paint the walls and put up some trim, so I will show you more pics when that gets done.
Thaddeus's first official start date for the law firm was May 1. He has been quite busy since then working for the attorney's in the office. He has his official swearing in ceremony next Friday and then he will be able to begin getting clients of his own. We are both very excited and thankful for this opportunity God has given him in the Ogden area.


Happy Birthday to me. I turned 25 on April 27th. Craziness-I cannot believe how old I am already. We were pretty lowkey for my bday but we did got to Texas Roadhouse, delicious. They made me sit on a saddle while they sang me Happy Birthday, talk about awkward.


I started a new job on April 16th. I am doing the same job but with a different company. I am now a Staffing Manager for SOS Staffing. It is going great and my coworkers are awesome. I hire employees for Kimberly Clark, Autoliv, and a medical company called Fresenius.
