For Thanksgiving we headed to St. George to be with Jon's family! The weekend was fantastic, almost all of the siblings were able to make it which made it even more fun. We ate yummy food, played ultimate frisbee, went shopping, had a baby shower for Emily, celebrated Mom Cook's B-day, it was just a great weekend and so fun to be with family. Cookie also loved hanging with her BFF April! As we headed home to Grand Junction, it was nice to have time and reflect on our lives and truly how much we have to be thankful for!

Last weekend Kent and Debbie came and stayed the weekend with us! We had a great time with them here, we ate yummy food, went on a hike, made the most delicious homemade salsa.. (yes you should all be jealous) took a drive up the monument, which I think made us all a little sick, and watched movies. It was so fun to have them here, we love to entertain guests so anytime you need a place to visit you know where to come!

This girl is 1, can you believe it!! I remember a year ago driving to the hospital completely giddy to have this baby girl and now she is 1, I really can't believe how time flies.
For the big day, we went and rode the toys at the mall with cousin Karter, picked out the perfect toy for her present, got suprised by Daddy with a huge balloon, had pizza (which cookie ate a whole slice of) and had yummy cake ( which Cookie also ate almost all of)!
* We also went to the Dr. the next day, here are the stats!
- 19#13.5 ounces
- 28 1/2 Inches Tall
Latest Tricks - Says more in sign language and all done, High fives, raises her hands for touchdown, walks everywhere, claps, kisses, gets into everything!
We love this baby girl, Happy Birthday Cookie!!

A few weeks ago me and some of my friends did the Triathlon. It's a 1 mile swim, 24 mile bike, and a 6.2 mile run!! This was a great accomplishment and a lot of fun, I am super grateful my sister rocks and crossed the finish line with me!!
Here we are before the race started! I don't have any other pictures of the race, I'm waiting to get some!!

This little girl melts my heart, here are some pictures my dear friend Angie took of Cookie back in July, so she would be about 8 months old in these. Cookie is getting so big, so fast. Right now her mad skills consist of trying to walk everywhere ( she gets about 8-10 steps) waving bye bye, giving high fives, clapping, and giving kisses! We love her!

Two weeks ago Jon did a race called the Imogene Trail Run... it is an insane race! The race is 17 miles long and reaches up to 13,100 ft. So you run straight up hill for 10 miles!! I am so proud of Jon, what a huge accomplishment!
We stayed up in a cabin that was on the course Jon ran, so cookie and I got to cheer him on at mile 4!Poor Jon pulled his groin muscle on the way up, and on the way down he had a little crash, but he finished strong! Here is Jon with his war wounds. I think Jon was mostly sad about his phone breaking!
Jon and Jim Gebbarht after the raceIt was a great weekend, we stayed in the Gebbarht's cabin, played games, ate yummy food and went on a few mini hikes!

Jon and I took a 10 day road trip to Washington and Oregon, with a small stop in Utah! It was a blast, however all in all we drove 3,000 miles which is a lot with a baby! So here is our play by play!!
Day 1: Drive to Utah , ate at macaroni grill with friends and stayed the night with the Stewarts
Day 2: Drive 9 hours to Kennewick Wa. to see my parents! We suprised them by arriving 3 days early. Day 3: Drive to Portland Oregon! Jon and I stopped off at the Colombia River Gorge to hike and see all the waterfalls. It was incredible, we hiked to 3 different falls and had lunch at the bottom.
This was cookie's reaction when she saw the waterfall!We then continued to take the Old Scenic Highway and found this great overlook. ( I forgot the name)We were also able to see our friends the Jackson's and eat dinner, and stay at our friends the Bodmer's house.
Day 4: Woke up early went on a nice run and then headed to the Oregon Coast, Cannonbeach. Here we are eating at Mo's it was delicious!
Day 5: Woke up early and drove to Seattle Washington! Jon and I headed over to the arboretum by Washington State University. It was right on the lake and had trails to different botanical gardens. We ate at Madison Park and then headed to Pike Place Market to eat fish and chips.
Then we headed over to Westport, the Washington Coast, where we stayed in a condo on the beach with my sister and her family.
Day 6 & 7: Stayed in the Condo on the beach. Jon went deep sea fishing and we just relaxed.
Day 8 & 9: Drove back to Kennewick to be with my family sense my Dad was not able to come on the westport trip. I was also able to see my dear friends from highschool, it has been a long time, we ate ice cream at Red Robin and played catch up!Day 10:
