Elder Caplan, Brody, and Elder Edlinger
We had the missionaries over for the second time in the last week.  Our little Brody is wanting to be baptized, so we're getting the discussions.

A New Office

My brother-in-law Dave Blackhurst opened up his new office yesterday!  The kiddos and I got to be some of his first patients.  Everyone was really good, but we all had cavities, (Even Brody had one).

Welcome Emma!

Andrew's campout

Andrew went on a campout with the scouts Friday night.  They went to Roger Knecht's cabin somewhere in Spanish Fork Canyon.  They did some snow shoeing and had a really good time.

My Ninja Turtle

Bryson is waayy into TMNT right now.  Almost every day this past week he's asked me to take him to the dollar store so he can pick out new ninja weapons.  Last Saturday I ordered him a costume off of Ebay. The costume came today and boy was he excited.  He put it on immediately and ever since then he's wowed us with his tricks while playing TMNT songs on his ipad.  So adorable.

Words of wisdom

I saw this quote at Hobby Lobby today and loved it.  I decided to Google it and found out it's a quote from Thomas S. Monson!  Just thought I'd share

Aaron's "Guy Weekend"

Aaron had a fun weekend with some friends from the ward.  They stayed in a cabin, rode snowmobiles, ate steak, and just did "Manly things" as Aaron put it.

Julia Miller Bryce

My sister and I attended a funeral today of a friend we used to dance with, (Julia Miller Bryce).  The service was very nice.  Emotionally draining though.   Julia has 4 beautiful kids ages 10 and under.  They're going to miss their mama.

Abby's Basketball Game

I feel guilty that this is the first time I've posted about Abby playing basketball this year.  She's well past the half way mark for the season.  I guess anything is better then nothing though, right?
This year Abby is on the Stars.  Her coaches are Natalie Everitt and Jason Ruch.  She only has 6 players on her team including herself (Abby, Abby, Ally, Mia, Lilly, and Emma).  Today Abby played against several girls who are on her soccer team.  It was a close game.  In the end her team came out on top.  

My cute lil girl

Dad and Brody

Grandpa Nelson and his bestie (George Ricks) came to support Abby

Harts Grand Opening

Harts off of Pioneer Crossing had their grand opening today.  RuthAnn, LouAnn, and Brittany stopped by after the shower.  All of us won some prizes.  Brittany and her daughter both won $25 gas cards!  We even saw Cozmo there!

Katie's Baby Shower

My niece Katie Phelps is expecting.  She and her husband Bryan are having their first girl next month!  Today was her baby shower.  Her mom (Kenna) and her sisters (Mel and Rachel) gave her the shower.  The shower was at Mel's house.  Katie got tons of cute things.  I'm excited for her. Here are a couple pics I took with my phone.

Mom to be

RuthAnn, Keagan, and I gave her 2 owl outfits, 2 pair of shoes, and a baby bath/lotion set.

They had tons of games.  One game was called, "Break the water".  These little plastic babies were frozen in ice cubes.  The first person to get them out won the game.  -That ould be me!☺
