Amber at 7 months!!

Our baby is growing! She is very active, and it has been fun to feel her move all the time. In this picture she looks a little pointy, but maybe it's just the shirt!

House Progress

It has been a while since we have posted about our house, and it has changed a lot. It is going to be all finished in just a couple of days. We are so excited!

Here is the view from the formal living room looking at the stairs. As you can see, the carpet is in!

Here is our kitchen! We are very happy with our cabinet choice, they turned out great! The counters aren't on yet in this picture, so that light color on the countertops will go away.

Look! Our house!

This is our cul-de-sac. We are the house on the right. Our street is called "Lil Robert Court." I don't know how they come up with these crazy names.

This is the view from the back.

This is from the front.

We have been surprised by how fast it turned into a house. We were going to just go see the cement and there was a house already! In two days they put the whole frame up.

Am's trip to Michigan!

I had the chance to spend a few days in Michigan with my family. I had so much fun!
Here are some pictures of us at my dad's cross country meet. It was freezing cold!

My grandpa took my mom and I out for lunch after the meet to warm up.
This is my mom, Julie, Jonathan, and I while out to eat on my last day in Michigan.

Memories from Amberfest...

This was her final present (a down mattress topper so our bed can be somewhat comfortable for her soon to be large belly)...

"I think that's my present"

"What is it?...Dave did such a wonderful job wrapping it by throwing blankets and pillows on it"

"Just what my pregnant belly wanted!"

"Now here's a little early Davefest present"

Other Amfest presents included:

a blender
a mandolin slicer (I had to ask about 7 different employees at 3 different stores before someone knew what this was)
a hoodie
a pic frame w/ b&w pics of us
more candy

Now only 346 days left until the next Amberfest...

Memorial Day

This is Dave and I at the Meridian Speedway on Memorial Day. We went with Chris, Sarah, Caleb, Ellie, Chris Allen, and Evie. On the last race that was 50 laps, Dave picked the winner (the green car). It was really exciting as they were really fast and loud!


Dave and Am went to Blackfoot for Cheryl's birthday. This is us at the zoo in Pocatello--although we didn't end up taking any pictures of animals! Hope you had a nice birthday, Cheryl!

Lucky Peak

Am and I went for a Sunday drive up to Lucky Peak. It was amazing to see the power of the water coming out of the bottom of the dam. I'm pretty cool--especially with my crooked sunglasses.
