So...umm, I'M PREGNANT!!! (this is Stacy if you couldn't tell). I am nervous but VERY excited for our first baby. I just went to the doctor yesterday and got to hear its heartbeat! It made all the morning sickness worth it! :D So I know that I should have told you all earlier (since I am 15 weeks) but I didn't get to go to the Doctor until yesterday... I just had to know for sure before I announced it to the world :D. We will get to find out what it is next month when I go in again, so I will keep you posted. Keep us your prayers and I love you all!

Engagement Photos!

So here are my engagment photos... finally!!! I hope you enjoy them!

Sunday, September 7, 2008


Of course most of you already know by now that I am engaged but I wanted to make a different sort of announcement :) AJ and I have changed the date to November 8th so I hope that everyone will still be able to make it. I love him so much and I am looking forward to spending eternity with him! It has been a bit hectic lately with school, work, and wedding plans, and I am sure it is only going to get more busy :( I really need to make sure that I pass this semester so I am trying to find that fine balance (which I am sure you all know exactly what I mean!). I will post pictures of us together as soon as I get some :). I love you all!

Family Camping Trip

We went camping as a family last weekend and it was a blast with lots of food, company,atv rides, games, rain, durt, paint markers (guns), camp fire, sweaters, blankets, naps, books, somemores, and of course laughter.

They are Married!! (Eleesha and Jared)

We are so excited to welcome Jared into our family. They were sealed in the Las Vegas Temple for time and all eternity on July 12th 2008. It was a wonderful day!

It's me again!!

So I haven't written in some time because nothing has really happened. With that said, tons of little things have happened (nothing too important) and I figured the only people that read this anyway are the ones that want to know the little things that are going on in my life. So this week has flown by, my parents left on Monday for a 10 day extravaganza and I must say that I am quite jealous. It has been so lonely here at the house with no one else here (eleesha works in the morning and I work in the evening, so we both have the house to ourselves... well, eleesha has a friend staying here so she doesn't get to lonely). So I was going to go visit my friends in reno because I have a three day weekend, but my best friend (the one I usually mooch off of is "out of town" for the weekend). So I think I have decided to stay here for the weekend which will be good because I am making a quilt for one of my friends, at work, baby shower. I am just worried about a weekend at the house by my self... (eleesha is taking a day trip tomorrow and will probably be attending church with Jared)... we'll see. Besides that I have another work filled week ahead of me (again with no parents), so nothing too exciting. For those who know, I have a friend coming home from his mission on July 2nd which is coming up soooo quickly... so again, we'll see ;D. I hope you are doing well... don't forget to write. Love you always!

Matt and I finally got to get away for a four day weekend. It was sooo nice to relax and spend quality time together. For the first night we stayed at a mountain ranch in Williams Arizona. It was chilly when we got there and neither one of us even thought to bring jackets being it was supposed to hit 100 in Vegas. So there were no clothing stores in Williams so we drove to Flagstaff and luckily found some jackets (they were both on sale, we were stoked about that) Then we headed back for our horse ride. It was so nice a relaxing, a great way to start a vacation. We saw lots of deer. It was also at twilight, in the forest so it was absolutely beautiful.

The next day we traveled to Prescott Arizona. we wandered around down town for a while then decided it would be fun to see a movie. So after a short adventure we found the theatre and saw Narnia prince Caspian, it wasn't as good as the first one but i enjoyed it. On Saturday, we headed out and got massages (Matt's first one) and went looking for property for sale. We quickly got tired of that and headed back to the hotel for a nap (just because you can do that when you are on vacation) That evening Amber and Mckade came and brought Kaleb to us and we went out to dinner. It was so good to see them again, even if it was for a short time.And on Sunday we headed home.

As for Kaleb he had adventures on his own. He had a two night sleepover at Grandma and Grandpa mandeles' house but he couldn't stay for the third night because they were leaving to go on a cruise. So they flew with him to Phoenix where amber and mckade picked him up, watch and played with him for the day, then drove him to Prescott to where we were. It took a lot of planing, but everything turned out great (or so i hear) It was a fun vacation, and it couldn't have happened without help, thanks to everyone who took good care of my son. I love you and appreciate all your help.

Here are some pictures (sorry i didn't take very many, i was on vacation)

Matt is done!!!

Yeah, as of this Thurs Matt has his bachelors in Architecture from UNLV. We survived another semester!! Matt has been working hard and long hours (his average day was 17 hours long). We are all so proud of him (even though he only sees it as a mile stone because he will be getting his masters). I am so excited to see him more often, and for him to have regular 40 hour weeks. Matt is an amazing husband. So, here is a pic of him on the run.
