Wedding Bells!

My brother Hayden got married!!  I adore his new bride Mrs. Jackie Lyn Richards.  Jackie is from Arizona.  Hayden and Jackie were married on January 12th in the Mesa, AZ temple.  It was a beautiful day and anyone in their presence could feel the love these two have for each other.  That is one of the reasons I love Jackie, she is a perfect match for Hayd!  The reception in AZ was really fun and we all got a little dance on!  Due to Josh's school schedule I made the trip to AZ alone.  I wish my two boys could have come, but I got to spend some extra time with my aunties and my fam. 
 All of my mom's sisters came to AZ early to spend time together.  I was lucky to get to spend some extra time with them too!!
 Grandpa Bolinder and all his daughters!

Two weeks later after the wedding, honeymoon, and move to Boise,  (sooo excited Hayd and Jack will be close!) there was a wedding open house in Boise.  We made a really quick trip to Boise (less than 24 hours) to be there.  The trip was too quick, but glad we were close enough to be there!

My Little Man

Kase has the biggest appetite lately! 
Just having a little breaky at Herm's! Enough for a village of children.  
He did down a full ear though!
 LOVES running and diving into stacks of pillows!
 Thinks it's funny every time
 New Favorite toys: anything that rolls and his golf clubs
 He is such a BOY and I absolutely LOVE it!

Making faces at Mama

2012 comes to a close!

Starting the year off with an update to the last of 2012 and a start to 2013!  Kason and I were in Boise for pretty much the last 2 weeks of the month. When my mom was diagnosed with her breast cancer we had made a plan to come early for Christmas.  That way I could help her with things, we could spend time together, and I could go to one of her chemo treatments with her!  Overall I am amazed and taken back with how well my mom is doing.  She really hasn't skipped a beat and tires to carry on with life as normal as possible.  She has a down day or two after her chemo treatments, then she is back on the horse taking life by the horns!  She is pretty awesome!

So we headed to Boise, just in time for the Potato Bowl the Aggies were playing in.  Josh got to stay for the weekend and then headed back to work (someone's gotta make some money!) Kase and I stayed and Played! Josh came back to Boise Christmas Eve and we had missed him like crazy!  I think Kase and I had played a little too hard cause we were both sick when Josh arrived!  Daddy played nurse and of course got sick a couple days later! : ( Sooooo.  We were sick on Christmas. We were sick the rest of the time we were in Boise.  We were ready to get home to our bed!  We had a nice Christmas with my family (minus the sick part) Kason had no energy/desire to get excited about presents, but we will have that much more to look forward to for next Christmas! 

PICTURE OVERLOAD (don't mind the vampire red eyes in half the pics.  My camera is jacked and if I make edits, the picture turns into a blank black shot!?)

 Potato Bowl. Loved spending no kid time with my hubs!
 14th annual Girls Christmas Party!  The framed pic is from our senior year in High School. Everyone was there but Candice, we missed you girlie!

Luckily we got a little Christmas re-do on New Years Eve (Yes it took that long to finally start feeling on the mend) We were spoiled for the second time and Kason got to enjoy it this go-around! Hopefully now that we have all been sickies, we got our fix for the winter!!
 Sweet Jersey Onsie from Uncle Jordan!
