My Valentine

I Am So In Love With My Valentine!!
Ammon and I were away from each other this Valentines Day but that doesn't mean we didn't celebrate our love! I love any excuse to express my love for my sweetie. I absolutely adore him. Since we didn't get to be together I made Ammon his own little "14 Reasons Why I Love You." Starting on February 1 and going until Valentines Day, he got to read one reason why I love him.
14 Reasons
*He is a child in a man's body! And I absolutely love it. He is always wanting to "play." I love that he is going to keep us young at heart, forever!
*I am in love with his smile. Every time I see it I can't help but smile back. His smile melts my heart.
*Ammon is ALWAYS happy! He has taught me that happiness is a complete choice. He is always so positive and looks for the best in absolutely everything. 
*All I am going to say is... He has the body of a God. I could stare at him forever!
*He is SO LOVABLE. Sometimes I just want to squeeze him because he is so cute and I love him so much. He is easy to love.
*His athletic ability amazes me every day. He is good at E.v.e.r.y.t.h.i.n.g. 
*I love love love his kisses. He still manages to give me butterflies. No joke. His kisses will always be special to me. 
*There are two things that are hard to beat on the cuteness scale.. and those two things are Ammons giggle, and his full on laugh. He giggle makes me smile every time I hear it and you can't help but laugh with Ammon when he laughs really hard. 
*There is never a dull moment with him. I always have fun no matter what we are doing!
*He once told me that his goal in life is to be known as someone that makes people feel good about themselves. Well, he does every day and I love how much he cares about others. He is so selfless. He makes me feel loved, and beautiful every day!
*He is such a hard worker. I am so thankful for all that he does. He has such a busy life but he still manages to make me his #1 and always does it with a smile on his cute face.
*Blonde Hair, Blue Eyes. I could stare into those crystal blue eyes all day.
*Ammon is hilarious. He is my personal comedian. He can make anyone laugh their heads off! He honestly makes me laugh until my stomach hurts, every single day. 
*Ammon loves God more than me, and more than himself. That is what I love most about him. There is nothing more important to me. 

My Valentine is always full of surprises! I love it. Always keeping me on my toes. He sent me some gorgeous flowers! I was really missing him.. But once I got them, I was giddy the rest of the day!

I made him a cute little card. I am big on homemade stuff! 

And I came home to this cutie holding a collage of pictures he made for me!
We spent the rest of the day together, laughing smiling, and having so much fun. I am so thankful this boy is my Valentine FOREVER!

A Week With The Boys

While my parents were having fun in Hawaii, I was in Draper taking care of my brothers! I had so much fun hanging out with them for the week. We played ping pong, went to the gym everyday,  played speed, and I sure got a feel for what it is like to be a mom! I got up each morning, made sure the boys were getting ready for school, got them breakfast, and got them to school. When they got home I took them to basketball practice, baseball practice, and thankfully my mom already had dinners ready for us to eat so I just had to get them out of the fridge! 
One day I got to take lunch to Ryan and eat it with him since February is his birthday month! I loved getting to see him while he was at school. He asked for Cafe Rio! 
One night Jake and I didn't want to go to bed so we went a rented a red box. We got Enders Game! It was my third time seeing it but I wanted him to see it because I loved it so much! 
Later in the week Luke had a basketball tournament! It was so much fun to watch him play. The boys are very involved in a bunch of sports, and they are so talented. Sadly, Ryan wasn't feeling well. His throat was really hurting, and kept getting headaches! So on Saturday morning I took him to the doctor. He was tested for strep, and tested positive! Ahh poor guy. By Sunday he was feeling much better!
Sunday, we all went to church! And after church we went to lunch with Grandpa! I loved seeing my Grandpa. He is absolutely hilarious. I love hearing all of his stories! And he was so interested in hearing about Ammon! I love getting to talk about that boy. And I was especially happy to talk about him because I was missing him like crazy!! 
As the week came to an end I was sad to leave, but I was ready to get back to my hubby! I had so much fun hanging out with them, now it is their turn to come to St. George!
(I forgot my camera so I didn't take many pictures because the camera on my phone is the worst!)

Southern Utah University

SUU Here We Come!

Ammon and I made the brave decision to transfer down to SUU in Cedar City! We had been thinking about it for a couple months, going back and forth about whether or not we wanted to stay in Provo or pick up our lives and move to Cedar! Ammon's dream is to play football. It doesn't matter where, or who it is with, he just wants to play.  He is such a dreamer. And I absolutely love that about him. I want all of his dreams to come true and I want to be right by his side.
He has already made so many of mine come true and I know he will continue to! Which makes me so happy.
We were thinking about a few different schools, figuring out what the football teams were like. One day while I was at work Ammon called me and asked me what I thought about going down to SUU. I immidately felt a sense of peace come over me. And from then on, that feeling never left me. I know we are supposed to be in Cedar City, for whatever reason it might be, I really believe it is where Heavenly Father wants us!
I am so excited for the new journey ahead of us!
