About Us

Andy and I met on a blind date in Dec. 2005. One of my 7th grade students was his neice, and she set us up. Go figure. We saw each other every day after that! We were engaged by June and married in September of 2006. In January, 2008, we welcomed little Ethan into our home, and in August, 2010, little Addison arrived.

Andy is a diesel mechanic at Kennecott. I taught middle school science for ten years, and am now an evidence-based learning specialist for a school district.

Christmas Day

Once we were ready for the day, we headed down to my mom and dad's house! We opened up presents and had a nice lunch. Mom and Dad gave me a really neat trunk for my living room, and Andy got Itunes gift cards. They also gave us a sandwhich maker/waffle iron! Our last one blew up! Yes, you read correctly, it blew up!

Then it was Ethan's turn. Grandma and Grandpa gave him a few books, a few outfits, and a really neat grow chart that Grandma made.
This is Grandma trying to measure him! It's not working too well though.

After lunch, we headed over to Andy's mom and dad's house! They gave us some cash and a box of oranges. We're excited for the cash, because we both wanted to buy some new shoes!
Grandma and Grandpa bought Ethan this really cute truck, and as you can see in the picture, he didn't want to share with Dad at all!

All in all, it was a really nice day! We enjoyed spending time with both families, and spending time with our own little family!
