This is Brent's interpretation of our wedding cake. The cake was made by Lynn Haberle. The picture was originally taken by Lindsay Warren, Brent just modified it a bit. He did this in about an hour. "I love how you pretend to be me."

Bird Man
















In the dancing picture you can see my grandpa smiling in the background, I know it was hard for him to come- but he had to be there.

I found out about a week ago that my grandpa bird has terminal cancer. today i saw that man- even though it didn't look like him the same person i ate dinner with about 3 weeks ago, i knew it was him by the way he played the piano. the person that gave me the love for music one of the greatest gifts i was ever given. i wish the world could hear him play. i could see every bone and his clothes failed to properly hold its fit. i think the only reason i have an imagination at all is because of him. we used to laugh and laugh, and don't forget eat ice cream EVERYDAY! the bird man, the ladies man, the car shows and expensive suits man. "Thats the first mistake I've made since the last one"- Irvin Delbert Bird Jr. my mother asked me to pick a song to sing at his funeral--- it's hard when he's not even dead yet and he has no idea whats going on. I've decided to sing, "Oh Lord my Redeemer" by Jeff Goodrich. its a song my father loved to sing. i guess its the only song i could possibly even think of singing to a man i love so much.

Always an ADVENTURE!


It's been a busy busy month. It was Brent's birthday on the 12th! It was a funny story- I told all of Brents friends TWO weeks ahead of time that I wanted to throw a surprise birthday party. The southern friends down in Provo got the message loud and clear, but the northern mission buddies somehow read the date wrong. Lets just say to make things easier we ended up having two parties! Brent was more than surprised! This picture is the first party. Brent bowled a 206- best in his life, so I hear :)


I've been cooking, and as you can see sometimes it doesn't go over well- the foods get mad at what I do to them. I never really learned how to cook, so during the time that I've been waiting for school to start I've started watching the FOOD channel and surprisingly has been a good teacher. The story behind this picture - the rolls needed to rise for 3 hours, I let that happen put them in the oven then Brent and I decided to go and work out. 2 hours later "OH NO THE ROLLS!!!!" end of story :) I have been successful with a few dishes such as cookies, banana cream pie, meatloaf, noodles with a homemade sauce, and chicken. The past two weeks we have started the "can't buy anything until everything is gone" it's been fun and interesting to see what kind of meals we can come up with.


For Christmas we were at my mom's and she got them bikes! This video is of my little brother Tristan trying to ride his bike so cute because he can't pedal yet! It was a GREAT christmas and we're excited for the Christmases to come!
