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 Morning

Christmas morning was so much fun this year with Ethan! We are so happy to have him in our lives! We didn't wake up too early this Christmas because Andy has been feeling under the weather and took Nyquil before he went to bed. Needless to say, he slept in for quite some time! When he did wake up, it was great!

Ethan and I got Andy some garage cabinets, and instead of wrapping them all up, I printed off the pictures of them online and wrapped them up. Here he is looking at what we got him!

Ethan had fun with all the wrapping paper and the boxes, but he also really like playing with his new toys! He got a really cute little Handy Manny truck. The bed of the truck turns into a tool bench, and there are a bunch of tools, and it talks and tells you what to fix on the truck. Ethan really liked this! Santa also brought him an Elmo, a shirt, hat and mittens, Pirtates of the Tub toys, and a shake 'n go car.

Andy bought me a watch, and a bunch of things for my scrapbook room! Ethan gave me an Itunes gift card! I'll be downloading all sorts of fun music now!

Here is Ethan with his Elmo! It talks, and he just carts it around everywhere!

This toy is what Rachel and Gary gave to Ethan for Christmas, and it was the hit of the day. He loved to watch the balls!

This is the Christmas loot that Ethan got this year from Santa Claus!
