Saved the best for last..

So, I could not post this pic because I had to wait until nighttime so I could take a good picture and give you the full effect.. My parents recently added on to their house and did this in their living room.. We liked it so we decided to copy them.. It is rope lights sitting on top of some crown molding and it looks freaking awesome.. This was not an easy addition... I say it again and again.. Nathan is absolutely amazing.. He can do anything..

It's Done!

This is going to be a long post so make sure you have a minute.. As always life has been crazy busy but it has been very successful...I guess I will start from the first..

Danielle has started playing the violin and she came over to show us what she had learned and Ernie loved it. He sat there the whole time and just stared at her and listened.. it was the funniest thing ever..

The upper 2 pics are from our first outdoor climb of the season.. we went in the canyon and I went but it was still the middle of March and it was a little too cold for me to be climbing..

The middle of April Nathan competed in a climbing competition up by 29th street boulder fields. He did awesome.. We don't have many pics because I was videoing him most of the time but he did really well.. we got lots of cool gear out of it. Way to Go Nathan!

Ok.. here you all go.. it's been done for a couple weeks now but here they are.. The pictures don't do justice so if you want to see the good stuff you will have to come over and see it..



I owe my mom, Pauline, Aunt Kath and Aunt Teresa forever for coming down and helping me paint.. they are all professionals and did such a good job. We got it all painted in about 2 1/2 hours. all coats.. Thanks so much you guys! I love you all to death!

After.. but still before it was all the way done

So it is only fair that we start one project and finish it and something else breaks.. While we were painting there was a knobby thingy under my kitchen sink that broke and so water was leaking everywhere and my kitchen floor flooded and then I went downstairs to put some laundry in and this is what I found in the downstairs bathroom.. the water had leaked through the floor of the kitchen and you can't tell by the pic but there was an easy inch of water on the floor and the carpet was soaked.. lovely right.. the toilet was all bubbles so we had to get a new one of those.. the tiles in the ceiling were soggy and one broke.. So I called Nathan and he came home and looked at it.. said it was an easy fix..

So we went to Home Depot to get some new parts and when we got home we needed to find the main shut off valve for the water so we could change the fixture.. it was no where to be found.. So Nathan being the amazing man that he is.. traced some of the water pipes and found where it should be.. Funny thing though.. there was a wall in front of it..

He had to cut a hole in the wall and pray that it was under there.. It was.. the people that built this house must have been genius.. NOT!

Drum roll please.. here is the finished project! I love it so much.. I feel like it is really our own now.. its warm and cozy.. Yay.
Last week we had a BBQ with our friends just for fun and also to celebrate Bryce for Graduating!! Way to go Bryce! Nathan is always the best cook..We got out some Ladder Ball and had a little tournament.. (We almost made it all night without breaking all of the balls..) Cheap..

For my birthday Nathan got me a set of bigger, separte scriptures. I have some smaller ones that are all in one book that I still love but these ones will be easier for me to study out of. For my birthday Nathan took me on the frontrunner down to Salt Lake and we went and saw the Joseph Smith movie and to dinner and then we hung out at Gateway for a little while! It was so much fun.. I left my camera sitting on my dresser.. Go me.. But I had a wonderful 21st birhday! Nathan did an awesome job putting it together for me and making it so special! I love you Baby!
