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.

Easter's on It's Way

While we were at the mall today, we found plenty of fun things for Ethan to do. First we rode the really fun choo choo train, and then after, we went and had a short visit with the Easter Bunny.

Lovin' this picture! The mischievous smirk is Ethan's trademark!

Bring on the Pink

I couldn't wait for 3 more weeks, so we headed to the mall today to see if we could find out if we were having a girl or a boy! Luckily, it was a girl, because we can't agree on boy names. So, little Miss Addison Lee Allen cooperated with us today, and we will be welcoming her in August! We stopped at Gymboree on our way out of the mall and purchased her first jacket. Black and white polka-dots. I know that won't surprise any of you! :) Can't wait to start decorating her room!

In the box!

For some reason, Ethan loves to just sit in boxes! So, here is the latest of him watching sesame street, in it's entire length, while sitting in a box much too small for him!

His newest highlights . . .

He starts dancing as soon as the song for Elmo's world comes on for Sesame Street.

He loves to watch the show super why, and watches episodes over and over again.

Buzz light year is his favorite toy of all time! He loves to watch toy story, and cuddles his buzz while doing so.

He will NOT wear pants these days! Hates them for some reason, and will appease me sometimes in putting them on to go places, but the minute we get home he wants to take them off.

He's not too happy about having a sibling. I keep asking if he wants a baby brother or sister and his answer is always no.

Chuck E. Cheese

A few weeks ago we decided to take Ethan to Chuck E. Cheese just to see how he would like it! He had so much fun! We ordered pizza, and then went off to play games. When the pizza arrived at the table, he had a minor tantrum, because he didn't want to eat, he wanted to play the games!

Since he is a boy, he is obsessed with guns and gun noises, and EVERYTHING he turns into a gun! So, he absolutely LOVED playing this gun arcade game with his dad!
