It's one of life's irrefutable laws...a house isn't a home without the pitter patter of little doggie paws!

Trip To Omaha - Part 2
We found Omaha to be quite pretty, with a lot more rolling hills than I expected and enough trees, green and beauty to keep me happy.
We spent one day at the park. My parents, who had been anxiously waiting to spend time with their grandchildren, came prepared with big bubble wands and kites.
Ashley was the master bubble-blower. Or spinner, rather! These big wands didn't require blowing, just some serious waving. The best technique, of course is to spin in circles! Tyler loved flying his kite because all that requires is running full-tilt across a field - something he excels at! This was the first time mom and dad got to meet their new granddaughter, Claire. They couldn't get enough of her! Who could resist such a cute munchkin? We took a little hike through the woods and Tyler kept stopping to pick wildflowers and show them to me. Melt my heart!!! Ashley collected quite a bunch as well. Grandma didn't come on the hike, so the kids decided to present her with the bouquets of blossoms they found. Being with family is beautiful. To be continued...
I am Mom to Teddy and Wife to Scott. Scott and I have known each other since fourth grade and have been married since March of 2006. We have a pretty cool love story! I grew up in Maryland, the most beautiful state in the USA! I spent 4 years studying and playing (mostly playing) at BYU and then got a degree in Cosmetology at Von Curtis Academy. I served a mission in Chicago speaking Spanish. I am a hairstylist and I enjoy the time I get to spend with people helping them feel beautiful. I also work for a health promotion company doing health screenings. We are members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. It's a pretty awesome life!
Scott is the greatest man in the world. OK, can you tell Jennifer is writing this? Really, though, he is. He grew up in Maryland and is a HUGE Maryland Basketball fan. Fear the turtle! He attended Ricks College and Utah State and graduated with a degree in Political Science. He served a mission in Florida speaking Spanish. He co-owns Midwestern Property Services and also works as a heath screener for a health promotion company. He loves to study the gospel and always has his nose in a Hugh Nibley book. He does NOT like to have his picture taken. He is an AMAZING cook. And he's the best husband a girl could ask for!
Teddy is our baby - he's a little pomeranian with LOTS of personality! He loves meeting new people. He barks his head off at them as he watches them out the window, but as soon as they enter the door they are his best friends. He loves to snuggle and pretty much has to always be on someone's lap, especially when they are getting their hair done. He can sit, lay down or speak on command, but only if he can see that you are holding a treat for him. He's the cutest doggie in the whole wide world!
