My younger sister Annie turned 18 and we celebrated in style. My mom and sister Audrey planned a suprise 50s celebrity costume party for Annie, great fun and sucess! We at at the queen's table (hamburgers and shakes "formal style"), watched I Love Lucy, and danced to 50s music. We Jardine's love a good party!

So much, so little time..

The paper says "pass" for the instructor's exam

I'm still working on my degree, maybe one day I'll finish. I did Spring semester this year at a community college in Phoenix and then transferred to Weber State for Fall. I also took the cosmetology instructor's exam and took part time job with a beauty school in Layton. I have learned 2 things from this past year, it's a lot harder to attend college while being a mom but it's even harder being a mom, attending school, and working. Lucky for me Chris is very supportive. I am very thankful for the opportunity to learn and even more thankful for the coming winter break!

End of Summer Fun

While Chris was gone we tried to stay as busy as possible and being back in Utah around family provided us with activities and people to see. We went to Bear Lake in July, one of my favorites, and Caleb loved the sand just as much as I thought he would! For my birthday in August my mom, brother, Caleb and I went to Thanksgiving Point to the kid farm and had a great time petting animals, going on wagon rides, and harvesting "crops". The clip of Caleb was my favorite b day present of all time!

Chris Comes Home!!

I am very behind with my blogging, but I thought this would be a good place to catch up. As I'm sure you all know by now Chris came home from Alaska the end of September, he surprised me by coming a day early and even brought me flowers! It was a wonderful surprise and we are loving having him here with us!
