Give ME My Nickel BACK!

We had the opportunity to go see Nickelback in concert last Wednesday. There were some awesome opening bands too. Unfortunately we missed two of the bands, because we thought the concert started at 7:00 when it really started at six. We did get to see Hinder play though. They sing the song, "Lips of an Angel".

Chris' sister Alison and her husband Nate came with us!We took this picture 3 times and in all of them I look like I'm half asleep. Oh well. Chris looks cool!The lead singer of Nickelback, Chad Kroger. I took a picture of the big screen because he was a little too far away for my camera to focus on him. I think he was probably drunk during most of the concert.

Chris' crazy eyes!

We had an awesome time. The music was awesome.

I think that I will be a little more selective next time I go to a concert though. I was amazed at the amount of people who were drinking and all of the cuss words. It was my first rock concert, so it was definitely different from when we went to Josh Groban.

Going to concerts is definitely one of my new favorite hobbies and I hope to go to more soon.

Any one care to join me?

Refrigerator Meltdown

Ethan is the typical 3 year old. He loves to get into mischief and then act like he didn't do anything.

When we came home last Friday evening from pickin
g Chris up from the airport we walked in our house (I had been at my parent's for a couple of days) and were met by an awful smell coming from our refrigerator. We looked inside and couldn't figure out what it was. We thought maybe it was milk or cottage cheese. We threw those away, but the smell still didn't go away. Later on, when the boys were in bed, we decided we were hungry and opened the freezer to find something to eat. It was then that we realized what the smell was. Our whole freezer full of raw meat had thawed out! Ethan had turned off the temperature control to zero again!

Our temperature control is at the very front of our fridge making it easy for a little boy to play with it. He has turned it off on many occasions, but we have always caught it before anything started going bad. If you are ever going to buy a new fridge then I would recommend making sure the temperature control is out of a child's reach.
We laughed about it a little. We were also understandably upset because meat is expensive.

We settled on popcorn, watched a movie, and went to bed. The next morning I'm half asleep when Chris wakes me up to tell me that every
thing in the fridge has gone bad too, because I guess when Ethan got up during the middle of the night he was rummaging through the fridge and thought it would be funny to turn the fridge to zero, also. That little stinker!

I think Ethan was just trying to tell us in his own way that it was way past time to clean out our fridge/freezer. We spent that Saturday scrubbing it down. We also made an expensive trip to the grocery store to restock pretty much everything. We also picked up an item that every parent with a 3 ye
ar old must buy: DUCT TAPE! No, its not for his hands. We aren't that mean. We used it to solve the temperature control far. Our food has been safe for a week now. :)

Coming Home

Chris is coming home today!

He has been in Illinois for two weeks. I'm looking forward to life getting back to normal. Of course, that means going to school again. I have had a week off and it has been so nice! The boys and I have been hanging out at my parent's house. We always have such a good time there. My family is so wonderful!

I can't wait to see you Chris!

Logi loves to play with my makeup and headbands!

5 years... WOWZERS

We celebrated our 5th anniversary on the 7th. Time goes so fast. It seems like it was just yesterday that we got married. A lot has happened though. I mean... there are 2 extra little people in our family now.

We started out the celebration on the 6th by going to dinner at the Melting Pot restaurant. Such good food! Of course, it isn't a place that we can go to very often, because of how pricey it is!

Our yummy chocolate fondue

Friday we dropped off our boys at my parent's house and then we went to the Logan Temple to do sealings. It was a neat experience. We were there about the same time of day when we got married. A cute missionary couple took our picture outside afterward.

That evening we stayed at the
Anniversary Inn in the Jesse James Hideout. My favorite part about the room was that it had a pool table in it. We played a few games and I usually won (j.k. Chris).

It was an awesome anniversary. I love you Chris! I'm looking forward to 5 more years with you (just hopefully it won't go so fast! I don't want to get old.)

Well, I decided it is about time I blog again.

Chris and I went to a fun concert a couple of weekends ago. Has anyone heard of the band "Secondhand Serenade" ? We fell in love with them from a song we heard on the radio and then we bought their CD and fell in love with all of the songs.

The concert was at Thanksgiving point. There was so many people there. Luckily we had early entry tickets and so we kind of got to butt in line. :)

They had 3 opening bands who all played great music. A couple of the bands even had songs that I have heard from the radio.

Are you feeling the love?

Anyways, we had a lot of fun and we are looking forward to Nickelback in a couple of weeks!


I was having a rough time a few days ago and Chris came home and gave me these pretty roses! Nothing like flowers to cheer a girl up! Thanks Chris! :)

Do you ever find weird things in you fridge that your kids have left in there for you to find? This is what I found when I opened the fruit drawer:
A nice pair of Chris' dress socks and some scissors. Let's hope the socks are clean! I guess Ethan (I'm pretty sure it was him) wanted to get them nice and cool for Chris to wear! Or maybe he thought the apples looked cold and wanted to get them warm! Silly boy! Life is always fun and interesting with kids around! :)
