Jingle All the Way


We just got back yesterday from 10 days in Richland, Washington with Reed's family. We had such a fun trip! Evan (and Mom) loved having Grandma to play with all the time! It was Evan's first time on an airplane. It went pretty well over all, but he did have his moments. Since we were flying we had to open a few presents before we left. Here's what Evan got from Mom & Dad...
Here's a few pictures in Richland before Christmas

Playing with GrandmaHere are our graham cracker creations this year.
Reed's is his parent's house-with a cleaned out garage! Way to go Grandpa Chil!
We got some really cute pictures of Evan on his first Christmas

A California Thanksgiving

Since we were in Vegas the weekend before Thanksgiving, we decided to just keep going and spend the next week with my family in California. The weather was absolutely wonderful-why did I ever leave that place?! We had a really good time and enjoyed being able to spend Thanksgiving with family.

Grandpa Jo took us to the beach for the first time for a bonfire
Evan and Dad practiced their piano
We played with Grandma Jo...A LOT!
Played with cousin Reg
And of course ate a ton of good food!

This is how Evan looked most of the time on the 9 hour drive home...such a good boy!
We came home and got this lovely Christmas tree-our house smells sooo good!
And Evan turned 4 months!
Here's his stats:
Weight: 13 pounds, 5 ounces (50th %)
Height: 24 inches (75th %)
Head Circumference: 40 cm (25th %)

New Favorite Trick: Sticking out his tongue!

Vegas Trip

This weekend the BYU Men's Volleyball team had their first pre season tournament down in Vegas. Since it's not too long of a drive, Evan and I decided to go! We went and stayed with my brother and his little family (thanks guys!). Evan got to meet his cousin Reggie and they had a lot of fun together.

Friday night Reed's team played Long Beach State and Grand Canyon University. They won both games and Reed played really well. On Saturday they played Long Beach City College and Long Beach State again. And once again they won both games! It was a lot of fun to see Reed play again and of course it's always fun to win!

Evan did really well at the games. He liked to watch for a little while and then he would take nap! We were there for 4 games and he didn't cry once! He must love the gym already! Here are some pictures of Evan with all of his "uncles"
This is Uncle Brandon-he's a real uncleAnd here's how I found Evan sleeping the other day:

Go Cougars!

Like Father, Like Son

They both like to take naps during General Conference (and let's be does mom!)

Both love to watch college football (this kid LOVES to watch TV!)And they both look good in a shirt and tie! Matchy-matchy!

And here's Evan after his first BYU paradeAnd spending time with Grandpa Johansson during his surprise visit! Thanks for coming to see us!

And we are moving this Saturday. We're excited for Evan to finally have his own room, but are so bummed we're not staying in our ward. We have really loved this ward and tried to find something that would work for us within it, but it just didn't work out. We're so grateful for all of the friends we've made and for all they've done for us, especially when Evan was sick. Thanks guys! We'll still be in Provo, so let's not be strangers!
If you want our new address, just leave a comment and I'll email it to you

Evan's First Hike

This Friday the volleyball team hiked to Stewart Falls up by Sundance. All the guys were encouraged to bring a date, so Evan and I got to tag along. Reed and I had done this hike over the summer when I was about 6 months pregnant, so I told Reed it was his turn to carry the baby. We loaded Evan up in the Baby Bjorn and he did great! He slept part of the way, but the rest of the time he was very content just looking around, enjoying the fresh air. It was a perfect day to go-it was clear and the fall colors were so bright and beautiful!

All ready to go!

Let's go Dad!
We made it!
