Utah adventures

After Christmas we got to spend the next week in Utah.

 For Christmas we were all given a night out at Boondocks!  We ate some yummy pizza and went bowling while the little kids ran around the arcades, Jenson even got a spare!

My mom has a marble run that she got from her parents when they died.  It is Jenson's favorite toy at my parents house.  So Kasey and Chelsi helped us make our own for Jenson's birthday!  I am so excited to give it to him!!!

 We also planned a all adult date night!  It was soo fun eating dinner and actually getting to have a conversation with my siblings! After dinner at our favorite place (Red Robin) we went to Jillisa's house and played games- our favorite right now is called Encore. Babe got it for christmas!
 I also loved spending time with my dear grandparents!  Jenson loves their house and playing with all of their toys!  

 He loves to line up all his toys and say "cheese"  and have you take pictures of him with all his toys!
Family time is the best time.  It's crazy how fast time goes.

Christmas time!

Waking up to this awesome view is kind of my favorite!  
 Emily and Earl were at the house all week with us, we had so much fun hanging out!  We played lots of games, went to town almost every day, and watched lots of movies! The worse part we also shared the flu- it hit one person at a time.  Every night one person with get sick while the next one got better. Luckily it only lasted a day.  

 Jenson was one of the first ones to get the flu,  we knew something was wrong after he wouldn't leave our side at a family party and ended up falling asleep on Babe.  Sure enough that night he threw up all over me, the rest was history!

 On christmas eve we got to join in on the traditional Christmas Eve Caroling!  It was snowing, cold, and perfect! 

 Later that night we got some awesome news from Emily in Earl that they were going to have a baby!!  We technically found out earlier, so it was really fun to help Emily pick out the perfect gifts to help tell their girls!  Emily is due just a few weeks after me, I have always wanted to be pregnant with a sister so were pretty excited!!

Babe got the flu early Christmas morning so Christmas was pretty low key!  It was also a snowing blizzard outside so we pretty much stayed inside all day! 

Jenson was spoiled beyond belief, he got so many trains.  He was pretty much in heaven! 

 Once there was a small break in the snow we hit the road to make it to Utah for the rest of the day.  We made it as far as the bottom of the drive way until we got stuck.  Thankfully help wasn't to far away, Dave and Earl came and towed us out, and we slowly made it down the canyon.  Once we hit the freeway the roads were pretty much clear.  Good thing too because Babe was pretty sick so I ended up driving the rest of the way home so he could sleep.  

 My family waited to open up all their gifts till we got there!  It was so fun to see what everyone got, spending christmas with our families is the best thing! 

 Merry Christmas everyone!

Big News #2

One of my biggest reasons for flying home early was to go and tell our families that we are pregnant! It's been years of prayers in the making.  We are thankful everyday for this chance to have another baby.  There is so much I have to say about it but I'm going to save that for another post.  For now I am just going to share how we told all of our families!

You can tell the exact moment that my sisters saw my shirt and realized I was pregnant, and not just surprising them I was home! Extra thanks to my parents who got really good at lying to everyone so they wouldn't suspect anything! We had everyone there, except my little brother who was at class that night and my BIL who was away on a work business trip. My dad told everyone that he needed some help with a Institute lesson on families, he needed a picture and would do a little questionnaire for his class, after he would give them pizza for helping out.  Little did they know it was really so that I could have them all there at the same time so I could surprise everyone at once! 
After my mom picked me up from the airport we had a few hours to spare before anyone could see me, normally this wouldn't be to hard but my sister was staying at my moms house because her husband was out of town, haha.  We figured out a way to keep my moms car so I could meet them at the institute later, after everyone arrived.  So while my sister was at my parents house, I hung out at her house alone haha  She lives close to my dads work anyway so it was perfect.  My mom texted me when everyone was there and I headed up to surprise them!  We were sad Babe couldn't be there since he was finishing up his finals but my mom had him on facetime the whole time so he could see it all.  You can see her sneak off to the side in the video so that he could see everyones expression!  
It was so fun to finally tell everyone, and get to see everyone!  
^^ This is the shirt I made to wear, miracles really do happen! ^^

When we announced with Jenson we made a movie poster so we only saw it fit to do the same with this baby!  
Also Hunt baby #2 is a GIRL!!  I would have been happy with a boy too- but between you and me I am EXTRA happy it's a girl!!  Now I just have to figure out how to fit all the girl stuff in our tiny apartment that's full of boy stuff! haha We love you so much already baby girl!
