Double Sleepover

Ava and Kinly

Ava and Jamis niece, Kinly, are a year apart and i thought it would be fun to have a sleepover with them both. We got pizza, bought yummy cupcakes, painted nails, watched a movie, and they had tons of fun jumping onto the bean bag. The next morning Ava and I ran to the store for donuts and she wanted to wear a wig. She got a lot of comments and a worker there thought it was real. (well, yes of course lets dye a 5 year olds hair black with purple and green streaks.) Then we all painted rocks like ladybugs and one butterfly. Later on when i took Ava home she showed me her new bike
and how great of a rider she is.

Grandpa's 3rd Annual Puppet Show

Every Monday in October I had the opportunity
to help my Grandpa with his puppet show.
This year it was "The Wizard of Oz" with a twist and a good lesson. I love how excited and dedicated my Grandpa gets about his shows.

I enjoyed spending my Monday nights there!

Also, I enjoyed some play time at the park with Jer and his kidos

here are some clips from the show- my grandpa is awesome!!!

Random Rock

1 night camping trip with Taylor, Brock, and Jami

Jami really wanted to go camping and the rest of us just tagged along and in the end we were glad we did. It was a fun 24 hours! We set up camp by this random rock all the way out past Tooele. We ate tin foil dinners, relaxed by the fire, played cards in the tent, and then went to Denny's the next morning.

Forever Family

The Gerbers were sealed today as a family in the Oquirrh Temple!!!

Thursday, September 8, 2011

locked out

This was a special weekend for the Gerber's so the Hansen's and my Mom and Lane came into town. I was in charge of babysitting while the adults went to the Temple for the Gerber's endowments. However, Callie and I switched cars which had my house key on it. So when I showed up to my house with 5 little ones we were locked out. I felt so dumb and helpless. We waited outside for half an hour until my roommate could come let us in. We watched a movie, ate snacks, played, and danced. And my friend, Jami, was nice enough to come help out for little while. Afterward we all went out to Cafe Rio.

do you like how my living room is a mess?


my first meeting with Rockwell Adam

i finally met my ROCKY!!!
oh, how i love him- he is PeRfEcT and extremely adorable!

Saturday, September 3, 2011


I headed up to Logan for the evening to attend my friend, Jerad's reception. Then afterward I stopped to say hi to my previous roommate, Becca, who is getting married next weekend and i won't be able to attend :( And it's always fun to play with Jess. I'm glad she tagged a longed with me. We ended the night up on campus where they closed down the street for a free concert by "The Rocket Summer."

so i was able to wrap July into one post.

Sunday, July 3, 2011


we went down to Huntington for a couple of days.
it was a fun relaxing time!!!

i would rather shoot a 22 any day over a pistol!
as you can see i only took pictures when we went shooting
and when Jami and i enjoyed our dippin dots!

Thursday, June 23, 2011


we went to a free concert at the Gallivan Center which was hosted by "Fight the New Drug". its an organization that i love and completely agree with- which deals with pornography.

4 bands performed and we knew two of them- Allred and Parachute. i have seen Allred numerous times and was excited to see Parachute for the first time.

these videos aren't the best quality since we were right by the speaker but, oh well, i can at least understand them. these 2 songs are my favorite by Parachute.

"Kiss Me Slowly"

the hike up was steep and kicked my butt. however, inside the cave i was a champ. there certainly were some slick, tricky, and tight spots.

to celebrate Pleasant Views Founders Day

-oh were we sore the next day though!

-we had a picnic, enjoyed the park, and went miniature golfing

(i had to take a picture in front of the pyramid and sphinx since i've actually seen them in person. and come on people the sphinx is not even a 1/4 of the size of a pyramid)

later that night a group of us headed down for a hike in spanish fork canyon to some hot springs.
