Jeff's hunting trip

Jeff went hunting with his friends over Thanksgiving weekend (I know...I'm late posting it!) and he had a great time. For the past 3 years, one of his best friends, Clay, has been drawn for hunting elk! I know, he's so lucky!! The past couple of years they have shot one on the first day but this year Clay wanted to wait for a bigger elk and he got it! I have to warn you first about the pictures though before you scroll down...if you have a queasy stomach then you might not want to look!!! (I didn't put the really scary pictures on though...even I was like "ewww" looking at them)
Clay is on the left and Jeff is on the right

Happy Thanksgiving!!

I hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving this year. Jeff and I had a very nice Thanksgiving with my parents. We had great food (that Jeff made! He's so good in the kitchen!), watched football, and visited with my parents early again this year. I say early again because for the last 3 years Jeff has gone elk hunting with his friends and they leave on Thanksgiving Day. So, we eat early, which is great for me!! I love Thanksgiving!!! Unfortunately though my brother had to work so he couldn't come.

I hope that all of Jeff's family and friends had a wonderful Thanksgiving and we can't wait to see you at Christmas!!

Nothing to post!!!

I'm sorry it's been so long since I've written!! But, there's nothing fun to write about right now! School has started and we have been so busy we haven't done anything fun in a while. Jeff with work and me with teaching school and coaching cheer for both Higley and MCC. It's crazy! I hope everyone is doing well! I love you!

Baby Audrey has arrived!!

She's finally here!! I am an official aunt now! Of course, I have been one since Jeff and I got married but now I am an official one!! My brother, Rich, and his wife, Brooke, welcomed their first baby on July 29th. Audrey is just so adorable and we all love her so much. I can't get over how cute she is!! I also can't get over how sweet my brother is being with her; he is a tough Marine who deals with the worst kind of people at the prison and yet he is such a teddy bear! I am so, so happy for Brooke and Rich and their sweet little family. We love you Audrey!!!!

Rich holding his daughter for the first time!

That's so sweet!

Our finished bathroom!!

Jeff finished our bathroom yesterday!!! I'm so excited on how it turned out! It's beautiful, if I may say so. Jeff did such a great job (now I want him to tile our master bathroom!) and I'm so proud of him. We don't have the shower curtain or the towel rack up yet but they are coming. I love how he made a shelf out of the wall too. WAHOO!! You did great, husband!!!!

I love this cute shelf!

He's doing such a great job!

Our 4th of July trip to Flagstaff!

Jeff and I went to Flagstaff for the 4th of July. It was so much fun! We stayed in his friend's cabin in Mund's Park and just took our quad out everyday. We went riding all around Mund's Park, Mormon Lake Lodge, Schneibly Hill Road, Sedona, and Oak Creek Canyon. It was so beautiful there because it was cloudy and the weather was perfect. The temperature was in the 70's!!!! For the 4th, we went to Williams to watch a cute little parade because there weren't any fireworks around Flagstaff at all. We were bummed but it was still fun to watch the parade and it was raining!!! We love the rain!! Anyway, here are some pictures of our trip.

Bathroom Update

Jeff has been working hard on this bathroom now and it's sure coming along! Here he's preparing the walls so the tile can be put on them. Last night he added the light fixture and put the mirror back up. He's doing such a great job so far!

Remodeling Time!

Jeff always has some projects that he is working on but summer is the time for BIG projects. Last year we painted the inside of our house and he added stone to the living room and master bathroom, and this year he is redoing our guest bathroom! I'm so excited because he is going to tile the walls, add a shelf that is cut into the wall, put in a new bathtub, and paint! Jeff loves working on the house and he's so good at it. Here are some pictures of the bathroom and of other work he's done on the house. (I love how handy he is!!!)

Here's a few pictures of our living room...he added stone inside of the entertainment center.
(the stone was provided by our friend Troy, thanks so much!!!!)

He added stone in our bathroom above the mirror
Guest bathroom---before
Here Jeff is going to start taking out the ugly (plastic??) walls that connect to the bathtub!!! YEA!
