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.

Pumpkin Patch

Here is our little guy in his halloween costume! Andy picked it out for him this year! :)

Ethan loved driving the tractor at the pumpkin patch! In fact, he had to drive EVERY single tractor that there was!

Too Funny!

This weekend, Andy started decorating the house for Halloween. I should have taken some pictures of the decor, so I'll do that this week. Anyway, Ethan was outside with us, and found a nice chair in our hedge!
This cracks me up . . . he often puts on my shoes and walks around the house. He doesn't wear Andy's, just mine! Anyway, here is a nice shot with my high heels, and some LL Cool J pants! What a twit!

St. George Trip

We spent UEA break down in St. George, and had a great time just relaxing. Really we didn't do much but take Ethan swimming and shopping! I bought me a great black and white polka dot jacket. One of these days I'll have to take a picture of it, because it has Leslie written all over it! We also drove out to Mesquite to swim and go to the seafood buffet. Believe it or not, the St. George pool was nice and warm and the Mesquite pool was freezing! So cold even, that we only put our feet in even though we were decked out in our swimsuits! We didn't take hardly any pictures of this extravaganza, but here are a few at the St. G
eorge mall on the toys, and another of why you shouldn't let children eat licorice!

Too Cute!

Ethan doesn't like to wear pants, so often just sports a shirt and the diaper! This particular day he also had to sport the sunglasses, but he would ONLY wear them like this, not over his eyes! He got mad when we took them off of him, and made us put them back on!

The other part of the story is riding "the horse"! Whenever he sees Norma laying like this, he runs over, calls her a horsey, and starts making horse noises! Luckily Norma doesn't care too much!

This picture isn't great quality, because I took it on my phone on a bright sunny day, but it still captures my little man's attitude about any type of ball! Football's are his favorite, but he loves to throw and "play catch" anytime he sees a ball of any sort!

When We're Helping We're Happy!

Funny story . . . My mother-in-law calls my father-in-law "honey", so Ethan thinks that Grandpa and honey are the same! So, he often refers to my dad as "honey"! Too cute!

Anyway onto the real blog, Grandma and Grandpa T tended Ethan a few weeks ago. When we got to the house to drop him off, Grandpa was out working in the yard, and Ethan of course wanted to help! He's such a good boy!
