House update and more!

So sorry for the long absence in the blog world...the real world has been a bit hectic lately! My back is feeling much better, although it put me out of commission for a bit, and work is going well. Kris is hard at work on our house (see pictures below) and the house he's building for the church in Salyersville (which is coming along quickly!!!!!)!!!! Every night I lie in bed and dream about our house...what color paint we're going to use, how I'm going to decorate, etc... Kris is super excited as well and it's one of our main topics of conversation! As you can tell from the pictures, the work is moving along quickly! In fact, I'll post more tomorrow because the roof is almost finished!!!

Also, I am officially an aunt again! Kody and Hanna had a baby girl, Scout Marie, on May 13th, and she is healthy and gorgeous! That makes 12 nieces and nephews for me now!Zachary turned 3 yesterday, which left me feeling sad about how fast time flies by... We're all looking forward to his birthday party on Sunday! Kristin no longer works at the bank and is officially a stay-at-home mom, much to the delight of Brady. You can already see a very positive change in him! Stake conference was AWESOME cause Elder Marriott spoke, and last but not least, the dreaded Girls Camp is coming sooner than later! ahhhh!

I am also in the process of writing a children's book which I pray will be a "home run" in the literary world, and am having a blast coaching the high school soccer team! I am already attached to the girls and am getting really pumped to have all 30 of them show up for practice! We are participating in the Relay For Life, ( go to: to support our team and to support the many cancer victims worldwide!).

Other than that, we are enjoying life! Kris is out with my dad and brother-in-law Kris watching Indiana Jones (he's been dying to see it since he heard the theme song on TV)!!! Kristen and I went on a walk and took random pictures as usual. I am going to post some pictures and then hit the hay! Night!

so glad for an update! I can't believe you are building your very own house. When do you guys think it will be done? AND...yes, Tyler really is that cute and NO, I haven't photo shopped him...yet ;) He is getting his four top teeth so I think it looks a little silly sometimes- but he is still adorable! We would love to visit and always feel free to call us if you want to get away to sin city for a visit!!
