Happy Birthday, Mara!


I just wanted to wish a HAPPY BIRTHDAY to my beautiful, talented, wonderful sister Mara!! She has been such a blessing to me these last 16 years and I can't imagine life without her. I couldn't have asked for a better Aunt to my Nick or a better friend to me. I love you, Mar!

#1 Daddy

I am constantly amazed by how much Nick loves, adores, and worships Brad! He wants to do everything he does, and when Brad is there, Nick won't pay attention to anyone else. Luckily, Brad feels the same way about Nick! These boys are definitley two peas in a pod! I joke that hopefully the next kid will like me, 'cause Nick wants Brad for everything. I'm so thankful that Brad loves being a dad and is so wonderful at it! I'm one lucky girl!

Picture 1: A few Sundays ago, Nick saw Brad putting his tie on and immediately started saying, "My turn, my turn!" He looked so cute with it on, I had to take a picture. Nick wants to copy everything Brad does!

Picture #2: We have a little play tent that Brad sets up for Nick. Last Friday night, Nick put absolutely everything he could fit in it: a basketball, a kickball, his chair, 7 pillows, 3 blankets, and oh yeah, BRAD! You can see a sliver of his face if you look closely!

Picture 3: "Racing" back to the car after a morning spent at the pumpkin patch. Brad makes a fun game out of everything. No wonder Nick loves him!

Picture #4: Brad helping Nick pet a bunny at a local farm. As soon as the bunny flinched, Nick freaked out and wanted nothing to do with it!

3 months later...

Hello Everyone!

Thanks to Jen for getting me going on this, and for posting my first post and a random picture of Nick (that's kinda blurry and stretched out). What would I do without her?

I wouldn't be surprised if all of you had stopped checking my blog, assuming that I would never post anything on it...but I think I'm ready to begin the adventure! I just took the last hour to look at all of your blogs, and they're so fun! It will probably take me awhile to figure this all out, so be patient -- but know that more posts and pictures are coming!

the first official post

So....even though this is Bekah and Brad's blog, this is Jen, and I am a little over-eager for Bekah to get started on her new blog. Blogging is the greatest thing I have discovered in a very long time and I have been getting carried away with it on my own blog (as my husband has informed me), so I am putting my blog energy to (hopefully) good use.

I think when it comes down to it I am just desperate to keep in contact with Bekah as much as possible since she is leaving Utah for Pennsylvania in just a few short days. We already have some ideas in the works: Brad consented to switch over to verizon so Bekah and I can now have free minutes, the blog is a great way to stay connected with pictures and random stories, and...who doesn't want to take trips back east as often as possible?

So Bekah...this is for you. I love you and am excited to see what future posts come from this blog!
