Annual Camping in Ouray!

Every year we go up to Ouray for a family camping trip and so that Jeff can run his Emogene Pass run that he has done every year since we've ben married. The first year it was just us and as each year passes we have more friends and family come up with us. This year the Andersons, Dad, Anna and Gavin joined us and we had a really good week.

Daddy and his girls. They are all truly daddys girls and love to be around him.

Bluey the Naughty

This here is Bluey the Naughty our family pet, the only one we will probably ever have. I have no idea why he is called what he is. We let the girls name him and O what a name.

Our Newly Redone House!

Okay, for those of you who have never been in our house this might not look too drastic of a change but for those of you who have you will understand. Remember there is still some decorating to be done but I like it thus far for sure.
This is our bedroom, It used to be orange. I redid the curtains and pillowcases and lamp shades.
The dining room used to be a green color. All the walls in the house are the same color now which will help when we decided to sell. O and Jeff installed the ceiling fan all by himself a few months earlier so that is somewhat new.
Our kitchen was a deep red and the cupboards were cream. Jeff stripped them, deglossed them and painted and glazed them. (please excuse the dirty dishes in the sink)
Part of the living room. Jeff's grandma painted the picture over the fireplace for us. (this picture was just taken so the leaves and pumpkin are our decorations for Halloween/fall)
This is the other half of the living room I modge podged the paintings above the couch and there are new blinds in the windows. I have curtains I am just waiting for Jeff to get his second wind on house fix-ups so he can hang the curtain rods up for me.
These next three are the girls' room.

Idaho Trip

Jeff and I decided our house needed painting and an opportunity came up to get it done so the girls and I packed up and headed to Idaho and left daddy and uncle Tyler to do the job of fixing up the house. We went up to Island Park to visit great Grandma Wilson and here are some pictures from the trip.

Baby Courtney's Blessing Day

Courtney was blessed on July 24th 2011. Jay and Becca, nana and papop were there to visit us that weekend and we had a great time.

Courtney's dress was made by grandma Jensen. She is such a tiny little bugger and we love her!

My Time To Shine

This summer we put the girls into a singing and dancing group called My Time to Shine. They learned songs and preformed them at places like the Childrens Summer Festival and Heritage Square. Jeffs parents were able to come up for Courtneys blessing and the girls had a preformance that weekend as well. Here they are with their cousins who were in the group as well.

Courtney Ann Roberts

My sweet Courtney Ann Roberts was born on July 6th. I guess all the playing around on the 4th just got her ready to come out. She wasnt due until the 20th. She has been such a great blessing in our family! She was born in the morning of the 6th and weighed 7lbs. 4oz.

Visits in the hospital from her big sisters.
