Lily the dancer

Our daughter LOVES to dance. In fact, I am pretty sure that is an understatement. She is ready to dance at the drop of a hat and LOVES the attention she gets. We signed her up for a local dance class that was done out of a girls basement but she did a great job and Lily loved going to Ballet. Here are some photos of her final ballet show.

Now the search is on for a dance school in Heber. YIKES! If any of you know of one let us know...

Sophies Blessing Day

This is about 3 months late but I wanted to at least post the pictures so we can remember it.

Sophie is seriously the happiest baby alive. She smiles ALL DAY LONG. She is pretty easy and only gets fussy when she is hungry (or lately when she is tired). She continues to crack us up with her little personality.

Her big sister Lily just adores her. Always wanting to give her a big squeeze and play with her. The two of them just laugh and laugh in their car seats in the back of the car. It really is soo cute.

Sophies blessing day was so special. Ash did a great job with all the decorating and the food. We loved having family there and are always so grateful for their love and support.

Sophie Marie! We are so glad you are apart of our little family.

Ok people... I created this blog for my darling wife to blog about the family etc. But we have been AWFUL bloggers lately. I am taking matters into my own hands and will try and blog more often. I doubt there is anyone out there who even knows that this blog exists but oh well... I will do it for our own record. So, since I am the blogger today I am going to post what I have been working on. Rather than reading up on it... here is the youtube video. enjoy!

Lately in Jon's life...

This past month has been adventurous to say the least. It was an emotional roller coaster! I figure I need to document it and may as well do it on THE BLOG.

First, I got this really crazy idea that I wanted to do two half marathons back to back (two weekends in a row) so I did. I signed up for the Salt Lake City Half and the Thanksgiving Point half. I honestly did not have even one free second to train (more on that in a minute) but decided I needed to just go for it. Here are some pics.

This is with my buddy from my Masters program Jared.

The first marathon was HARD... I thought it would be good to do it in the same place that I did the full marathon the year prior. WRONG. It was harder on me emotionally because it brought back all the pain and frustration of the previous year. The weather was great... but I don't think I will do this race again.

Second, was a local run. Thanksgiving point was raising money for the new childrens museum and the whole run was AWESOME. It was gorgeous, great money and thanksgiving point pulled off a fantastic race. I beat my PR by 2 minutes too! I ran it with a bunch of guys from my neighborhood. They are awesome. I would love to do more races with them again.

Then I had my graduation. I am a master of real estate development! (well kind of... I have a couple classes left to take this summer and then I will for sure be a MASTER!) I have LOVED going to school at the U. It was hard, and I constantly felt like I was betraying my alma matter BYU... but it has been great. My classmates have been awesome, my employer (Clark Ivory) has been very accommodating and supportive and I have loved learning at this level. It will be great when I am officially DONE.

And lastly... I have been so fortunate to get a promotion at work. I am now the Project Manager for Ivory Homes in the Red Ledges community. This is totally up my alley and I am THRILLED at the opportunity. We are the exclusive builder for everything under 1 million dollars and have already created 5 new floorplans with 100% natural exteriors and all the luxury upgrades. Here is a picture of what our new model will look like. We just broke ground last week!

Red Ledges is located in Heber Valley and is on the number one new golf course in the nation! It is a Jack Nicklaus SIGNATURE golf course and also just won BEST OF STATE in the state.

With this new promotion... we have one last bit of news. WE ARE MOVING!!! More on that later :)
