Jared is a married man..

Jared married Sarah Osterlie August 18 2012 in the Nauvoo temple. It was so awesome to be able to see them sealed for time and all eternity. The sealer was awesome! They both looked so great. They had a vintage barn reception in Iowa, where Sarah grew up, the night of their wedding. The had a second reception in my parents yard the Monday following the wedding. My mom worked so hard to make everything look so cute and shabby chic. We got all ready and were lighting the last candles when... It started to pour!! My mom was heartbroken. But if you ask me it turned out great! Being forced to move inside due to the rain, made everyone talk to each other. There wasn't the usual clicks or table gatherers. Everyone just circled the room and visited. I loved seeing old friends and most of all enjoyed the yummy food. My mom and her friends spent HOURS making all the yummy treats. They had peanutbutter bars and italian wedding cookies. Mini old black joe cupcakes and sugar cookie. Oh man, the treats were endless! The water was pretty dang good too. She made an ice ring that had mint and thyme in it. It just very lightly flavored the water. Refreshing! Rain and all the night was perfect! We are just thrilled to have Sarah as part of our crazy family!

April showers bring May flowers...

I can't believe the last time I wrote was about Christmas! I have so many stories and pictures about our girls to post. I'll start with this one. The other day we were running out the door and I went downstairs to grab something. I came upstairs looking for Saige and she was missing? I looked out the front door and who comes waltzing over with at least 15 daffodils in her hand. :o All I could think was holy cow! Please don't tell me she pick ALL of our neighbors flowers. Well after driving past her house and seeing that ALL of her vibrant yellow flowers, which by the way, were the only flowers blooming in her yard, were gone I knew i'd be in trouble. Well bad news travels fast and I'm guessing our neighbor across the street saw Saige in her happy picking and called our flower neighbor to share the story. Our neighbor with the flowers then text me telling me to tell Saige she is very upset and that she'd talk to me when she got home. GULP! BUSTED! When I asked Saige why she picked them she explained how she wanted to put yellow in her room. haha too funny! Well our neighbor was super nice about it and all she wanted was for the picked flowers to come back to her house so she could have the sunshine in her room. Oh little girls. Aren't they fun?
