Our New House!!!

I am going to need some advice on decorating and what to put where.

The kitchen has three light fixtures that confuse me on where to put the table.

We were kind of thinking this area would frame it nicely. and then maybe use the other space as a sitting area.

This is one of the kids rooms. Actually probably two of them will share until one moves to the downstairs room.

This is the main living room downstairs leading into Jared's office and the backyard.

This is our master bath and here is another place I want to spruce up to make it feel special. Any ideas?

This is the back of the house

and from the house looking out to the backyard. To bad it snowed that day cause you can't see the landscaping.

This is the storage area in the basement.
And the Garage!!! Love that.

We can't wait. We move in on March 25th and 26th. We are renting out our town home too. So if you know anyone in Provo who needs a place send them our way.

Our Big Trip to Disneyland
(The day starts at the bottom)

The next night we stayed in a hotel close to the park so we could see the firework show from our room. We pulled the blankets off the beds and cuddled up together to watch.

They were happy all the way until the the end.

A great way to finish the day watching the light and water show. It was amazing!



We went on this ride three times and the third time I couldn't handle it again so I stood by and took pictures.


Now this was the face we where looking for that morning when we broke the news. But at least we got it from her later.

Thank goodness for Destiny to let us borrow her stroller.

Brooklyn driving in Toon Town.



The kids favorite ride where the Tea Cups.


By the time we were done eating the both had warmed up tho the characters and Brody was even flirting with Minnie.

We scheduled a Character breakfast in the park and the food was great but some of the characters took some getting use to. Captain Hook was the scariest and Brody and Brooklyn were both most scared of him.

We woke the kids up early to tell them the great news, "we are going to Disneyland today!!"
The response was a tired "yay" and half opened eyes. I bit of a let down compared to all those commercials when the parents record there kids hearing the great news and they went crazy with excitement. But they were tired and I don't think they totally understood how exciting it was since they hadn't been there before.
These are the outfits I made for the kids to have them guess where we were going that day. Brooklyn's is a little dress and Brody's is a shirt.

As most of you may know we are expecting a new baby in June?
I made these shirts to tell Jared!

The kids are so excited! Brooklyn is always telling me to
"rest and take it easy, cause mom ... the baby."

I put this together for Halloween and wore it to the ward party.
I don't think very many people thought to look down cause I was surprised with how few comments I got with out pointing it out.


Brooklyn went as a Prima Ballerina but wanted to change about a week before.
I told her no way it took to much work to make your costume to switch now.

Jared and Brody went as Phinease and Ferb. (Our favorite show!!!) At our family party I was Dr. Doofinsmerks (I have no idea on how to spell that name) But had to change my costume cause They were pretty firm on no cross dressing at the ward party.
We already can't wait until next year and what we are all going dress up as.

Nicol Family Reunion

First day Deer Creek Reservoir

It was a very windy day, but we still got in to our waists evey though it was realy cold.

The kids had fun writting in the sand if you can call it that.

Brooklyn was so brave and rode the quad then ended up really liking it.
We got to see Case's hourses and feed them. Brody was so scared and he couldn't believe how many hourses there were. Everywhere we turned he would say, "There's another one!"
Brooklyn and her new best friend Jaycee.


We were so good at shooting.
Oh Yeah. Jared got all of his clay pigeons and I got two in a row.

We had a great time.
What a beautiful cabin and location. We had a great time
celebrating all the holidays!It's always fun when we get to know
our relatives better than before.
Our family camping trip.
Jared left me in charge of reserving the spot and I
found one that I thought was
close to the lake. It was about 5 min. from it
and practically a resort for RVers.
There was a swiming pool, showers, play ground
and a gift shop. And if we forgot anything we
only lived 5 min away.


Father and son fishing.

The kids loved all the games we played.

We made dotch oven dinner too.

Pizza!!!
It was great!

Well, I've been put to work this summer painting our kitchen and bedroom.
I have hired on the kids to help with the priming.
Brody found a secret place under the desk
and decided it would make a great little bed for him.

Some how he got paint on his back?

Here is our bedroom I am so excited to have finaly done this!
I have one feature wall with stripes. The lighting was a little weird but one color is
just a lighter and with a super glossey finish.
This is the ball of tape we made after we were done!
