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 Eve

We spent Christmas Eve at my family's Christmas Eve Party! There were a million people there, but it is always so much fun. We have dinner, play games, and open presents from each other, and from Grandma and Grandpa.

I was in charge of games this year, in order to keep the kids entertained after dinner. This is the unwrapping game. The kids had to put on gloves if they rolled a 1 and then they could unwrap the present until someone else rolled a one, and then it was their turn. When it was completely unwrapped, that person got to keep the present! The kids loved this one!
We also played pin the nose on the snowman! This was also a hit!
Here is Ethan unwrapping his very first Christmas present from Jarrod & Emily. It is a darling little race track with 3 cute little cars. He loves it!
Ethan also got a coat and hat from Grandma and Grandpa. They gave us a muffin and jam gift basket, and food for our food storage. From the drawing, Andy and I both got $15 Itunes gift cards! Thanks Em!!
