I'm Jen Nichols...I love hearing that name. Dave and I now live in West Jordan. Dave currently works at Pioneer Valley Hospital and Jordan Valley Medical Center. He is a Therapist for Pioneer Valley Hospital and does crisis work for them as well. Reagan is 3 yrs old and she is only getting cuter. Matthew just joined our little family on March 22, 2012. He is a sweet little guy. We are just enjoying the ride.
Matthew turned 1 on March 22nd. We celebrated it on Saturday so that family could be there and celebrate as well. I decided to try something diffrent this year and make Matthew's cake myself instead of buying it from the store. I have always wanted to learn how to decorate cakes and a woman in my ward has decorated cakes for years. She helped me out and I think it turned out pretty good. I had a lot of fun making it and can't wait till I get another chance to make another cake. My parents and sister came over for the celebration. I made dinner. We had sloppy joes and fries. Then afterwards we opened Matthew's gifts. As you scroll down through the pictures you will notice that Matthew would rather eat his gifts then open them. He loved everything he got...well days later he plays with the actual gifts. He was more in love with playing with the wrapping paper and boxes. The best part of the whole day is seeing him eat his first cake for the first time. He didn't know what to think of it at first but then I love it when he dug into it and started devouring it. Love my little man. Can't believe it has been a year already.
I saw this really cute spring wreath on pinterest and I decided to try to make it for myself. I pin a lot of things to pinterest and haven't tried any of them. So I'm glad I finally did. It was really easy and turned out really cute. I'm pretty proud of myself.
