So I finally have some pictures to post! This month has been so much fun with Audrey, we have made lots of fun memories!

Audrey's first time sitting on Santa's lap! She didn't even cry, she just looked at him like he was crazy but she was happy with her candy cane!

We went on a hayride in the Layton Park to see all the lights. Audrey was in awe! She just chatted the whole time and was full of smiles!

I tortured Drew by making him take a family Christmas picture, but he was a very good sport and endured it well! Audrey loved sitting in her new rocking chair that he dad fixed up for her and she just couldn't stop smiling and giggling!

We went over to Drew's sister Brittanie's house to decorate cookies but Audrey had more fun decorating herself! She ate the cookies faster then she could frost them but she was having so much fun I just couldn't bring myself to stop her!

Audrey and I had matching Christmas Dresses this year...even though Drew thinks it's dorkey that we always match! I love it and Audrey looked absolutely adorable!

Audrey had so much fun on Christmas! She wasn't quite sure how to unwrap the presents but she loved them once they were unwrapped. Once we got the wrapping paper off she would clap and then start to play with the toys! The first thing she did with her dolls was give them kisses, she is already such a girlie girl! Of course, her favorite thing about Christmas was the wrapping paper and boxes! She got totally spoiled and so did Drew and I! We really had a wonderful Christmas!

Just a little update!

So I have so many cute pictures on my camera to put on here but things have been so crazy that I haven't had a chance to do it yet. I will asap, I promise. Things are going great for us this holiday season. Drew is super busy with work, of course! Audrey got to sit on Santa's lap for the first time and she didn't even cry! She loved him! We have been having so much fun at the family parties getting to see everyone and catch up. Audrey is growing up so fast and already has her first two teeth! She says Ma Ma and Da Da all the time, it is the cutest thing ever! She has the sweetest little voice. She loves the presents under the Christmas Tree and of course she is into everything! I think her favorite thing this Christmas will be the wrapping paper! She looked so darling in her Christmas dress yesterday and even though Drew thinks it is dorky Audrey and I matched with our Christmas dresses! It is so much fun to have a baby at Christmas time and get to enjoy all the kid things of Christmas again!

Hope you have a wonderful holiday season and a very Merry Christmas!

What a little sweetie! This picutre is just so Audrey...with her little fingers in her mouth! She just loves those two fingers...but right now it is pretty darling!

The Latest...

So Audrey is just growing like a weed! She is 13 lbs. 5 oz. now and 7 months old! I know that sounds small but she just keeps getting taller and taller forgetting to get any fatter! The doctor says she is just petite but growing very well. She must have got the Nelsons genes! She is sitting up so good and moving all over the place! She is just so active! I love to just sit and play with her so I can hear her jibber jabber away! She is just so much fun!

We just got Audrey's pictures taken and they turned out is a little peek...

Winning Streak!

SUU won again today for second win in a row and their third win this season! Austin did awesome with 5 tackles, 2 1/2 tackles for losses, and a Quarterback sack! Final score was 14 to 7! It rained the whole game but being soaked was worth watching such a great game! Audrey was such a good sport and the best ball game baby...all decked out in her SUU clothes she didn't even fuss, just cheered for Austin and slept! Back at the hotel we are having a bunch of fun with the whole family since we don't get to be all together very often!

SSU Football

Austin started his last season with the SUU football team and that means a lot of weekend trips to Cedar City for us! We went to his first home game last weekend and had so much fun! Audrey was the cutes cheerleader there! She was all decked out in the cute SUU outfit her uncle Austin bought for her and topped it all off with a matching bow and an SUU tatoo on her cheek! They won 35 to 7 and Austin had a great game!

Bow Hunt

We're Back! Back from a week of camping and hunting! We spent the week with Drew's family relaxing and fourwheeling while Drew and the guys hunted deer. I'd tell you where but apparently it is against hunting rules to give your spot away! Drew shot a 20 inch 3 point! We had a lot of fun just being together as a family, enjoying a little bit cooler tempatures, and of course Drew loved hunting! Back at camp while the boys were busy us girls had fun painting fingernails, putting makeup on Audrey, riding the fourwheelers, and chasing kids! Camping is great in the trailer Drew bought for us! He knows how to take care of his girls! Needless to say it was a lot of fun and you'll be able to tell by the adorable pics!

After we got back from the hunt I got my bows and baby bracelets in a boutique. It's called Shop 46 and it is on Hillfield Road by the south gate to the Base. Hopefully they will do well there!

Girls Weekend

Audrey and I had so much fun this weekend with all the girls! We went and stayed in Morgan at my Aunt CJ's parents house since they are gone on a mission...we did crafts, played games, watched movies, laughed tons, and of course we went shopping! We spent the day on Saturday in Park City shopping and got lots of great deals! It was fun to just hang out together and relax! Pictures will be coming soon!
Of course while we were doing girl things Drew kept himself busy with boy things! He went to an archry shooting course to practice for the big hunt this week! To say that he is really excited for the hunt would be an understatement!

Audrey's Update

We went to the doctor yesterday for Audrey's 4 month checkup and she is doing great. She weighs 11 lbs. 9 oz. and is 24 inches long! She is in the 25% in weight and the 50% in she is just a little string bean! She rolled over twice for the doctor...I think she is like her mom and likes to show off because at home she will never do that on command! The doctor said that we can start feeding her baby food! I can't believe how fast she is growing up!

Roy Days

So...Roy Days went great! It was a long day in the hot sun but we did really well selling Hair Bows and Baby Bracelets. Audrey was such a good girl...she didn't cry once all day and was the perfect modle for us! I'm not surprised that we did well with how adorable she looks in her bows and bracelets! I still have lots of inventory so if any of you want any darling things for your baby girls let me know! I'm now getting ready for a big boutique in October!

Katie is going to be leaving for school in just a couple of weeks and we are going to miss her so bad! She is counting down the days but it is going to be so crazy not to have her here! She is taking every chance she can to tend Audrey and I know Audrey will miss her while she is gone! This weekend we are having a girls weekend making jewelry and shopping before she goes and it is going to be a blast, i'm so excited I can't wait!

My New Venture

So I'm making and selling hair bows, flowers, headbands, and baby bracelets! I made tons for Audrey and she has so many that I decided if I wanted to keep making them i'd have to sell them! They are perfect for babies when they are cliped on the interchangable headbands and perfect for little girls cliped in their ponytails or even just their hair! Let me know if you want any!
Bows and Flowers are $4.00 or 2 for $6.00 (unless otherwise priced) and the baby bracelets are $4.00 or 2 for $6.00.
They are fun for your girls or make a great gift!

Weekend Fun

Yeah! Drew is almost done with summer semester! He had some major homework over the weekend but got it done and now he only has his final to take! I know he will be excited to have it over with just in time to start a new semester! While he has been busy with homework I've been busy making bows for this weekends big sister-in-law and I are selling bows and baby bracelets at Roy Days on Saturday!
We had lots of fun at the Raptor's game with all of my family! They won...wahoo! Katie and her friends entertained us as they asked out all the players during warmups! Then we had fun getting together with all of my Dad's side of the family on Sunday for a farewell dinner for my cousin Curtis and his family. It is so fun to get together and see everyone!
Audrey held her bottle by herself for the first time and it was darling...those tiny little hands don't even get all the way around the bottle!

Big News!

Audrey rolled over for the first time this week! Once from her back to her stomach and once from her stomach to her back! I can't believe how fast she is growing up! I laid her on the love sack and turned around to check on the CD I was burning and when I turned back around she had rolled over and was so proud of herself as she just looked at me with the biggest smile and laughed! She is just absolutely adorable! Also...we just weighed her again and she is now a whapping 12 lbs.! Although i'm not sure where she keeps it since she is so long and skinny...probably in those darling chubby checks of hers!

New Pictures

I just added some new pictures to show you what we have been up to! We've been busy but with some fun stuff. Some of it may surprise you! We certainly have been sharing some special and fun moments together as a family.

Thursday, July 17, 2008


We just bought a new camping trailor...cuz' I told Drew that was the only way we were going camping with a new we have been having fun camping and making memories as a family!

We've been to Otter Creek, East Canyon Resort, and Hoop Lake. Drew is teaching me how to fish and I even got my first fishing license...but don't you worry I only agreed to get one if he knew that there was no way I would ever touch a fish, so he takes care of that part. We've also been enjoying Baseball, watching the Raptors and Drew's Softball team!

Obviously Audrey is learning all about camping and sports but of course I am also teaching her all about shopping! She loves walks around the mall and we all know how much I love that too! And she is quite the girlie won't see her without her hairbows and bracelets, she even has her first doll (even if she doesn't have a clue what it is yet)!

Just a little update

Just a little update on what is going on with us...
Drew is staying busy with work, school, 2 big church callings, and making time to hang out with Audrey and I! He is the Scout Master and the 1st Counselor in the Young Mens in our ward so the boys keep him hopping. He is back in school part time working on a degree in Technical Sales and still working at FedEx. I'm back to work at SOS Staffing after 3 months off with Audrey, it was a little tough to come back but I'm only working part time so that makes it a little easier. I'm staying busy with work, taking care of the baby, and being 1st Counselor in the Relief Society Presidency in our ward. Plus I have started a new venture...making and selling baby hair bows, headbands, hair clips, and baby bracelets (so if you need any they are adorable and I have a lot on hand)! It is a lot of fun and hopefully will bring in a little extra cash for us! Audrey is doing great! She is so alert all the time and with those big beautiful blue eyes she just looks at us and it seems she has so much to say but just can't quite make the sound come out! She is full of smiles and is even starting to giggle...everyday holds a surprise with her!

Then there was Three

Audrey was born April 3, 2008 and a wonderful addition to our little family! We had a few sleepless nights there at first but now at 3 months old she is sleeping through the night! She is smiling all the time and even giggles! Just a couple of days ago she played with her first was absolutely adorable!

Oh listen to me...I never thought these kinds of things would be so fun to talk about but she has opened the door to a whole new world for us and we just love her!


I'm making and selling these darling bows, bracelets, flowers, and headbands!


Cute, cute, cute!

More Bows!

More Bows!
All sizes, colors, and styles!
