Tis the Season of McDreamy...

The premiere of Grey's Anatomy isn't just a happy day around these parts, it's grounds for an all out celebration. That's right, we had munchies galore, lots of giggling, and at times some tears! Yes...THEY all cried. I am not a crier I guess...ha.

From Left to Right: Aunt Mer, Kim, Tiff, Kayla, Mom, and ME!

Mmmmm...Ma made chocolate covered strawberries...Delish!

My mom is so CrEaTiVe. She made these cute little sayings and tied them to a water bottle. I loved it!

Thanks mom for the fun party! It is always a blast to get together with the girls! Love you!

I had to post this because I thought it was so cute. Herbie (aka Hadlee) came to play on Saturday after we all watched my cousin Nicole barrel race at the Blackhawk. I always feel so bad, cause I have NO- Notta- Zilch toys for the kids to play with. Kezi is about all I have...and she can only take so much. Poor Kez. So I told Herbie that we had a little neighbor girl that probably would play if she wanted to go ask her. She didn't hesitate and she walked right over there, and about 5 minutes they both come...walkin' down the street. Being the proud aunt I am, I had to take pictures. They played from about 1 am to 8 pm. They were so cute:)

Playing with their "babies" in their "car" while their "husbands" were out doing... I have no idea what...ha ha. Gotta love their imaginations:)

I didn't get pictures, but we have had NON-STOP BBQ's at our house! With, the Missionaries, Josh and Alley, Dustin's parents...just us two..etc, etc. Gotta get as many in as possible before it gets too cold:(

Here, There and Everywhere:)

I figured while Dust was out mowing the lawn, I would get a quick post in. Otherwise, it will probably not get done for a while!

Last Sunday, Dustin and I went with my mom and Jer Bear to Fish Lake to have lunch at The Bowery Haven. I had never been there before and...everyone be shocked...I ordered PRIME RIB! I know, I know, that is very much out of my element considering my love for red meat (NOT!), but maybe my body was cravin' a little iron...who knows?! Actually I think I was just craving horseradish...Delish! Anyway, the trip had to be cut short, cause my lovely Anatomy homework was waiting ever so patiently back home for me:( Boo!

Mom and Jer Bear showin' some love;) Ahhh

I just had to post this...I was taking a picture of Dustin cause I LOVE when he has a fresh hair cut, and I think after seeing this picture that Kezi likes it just as much as I do!!! She portrays my reaction to his new hair cut perfectly in this picture! ha ha

Dustin and Elder Noyes and Elder Tueller...such great missionaries!!!

On Friday night, Hadlee danced during half time at the Gunnison football game for Mini Drill Team. I love to watch her dance. It is so cute, she just eats up all of that attention! That-a-girl Herbie!!!

Now, on to the elder of us two...Dustin had his 5 year class reunion last night at the Salina Park! Wow, time flies...About 20 people, and some brought wives/husbands, showed up. We had hamburgers for dinner, and spent the rest of the time catching up! Thanks for everything JaRelle! (I also went to JaRelle's baby shower earlier, but I didn't get any pictures:()

My family from the class of '04. JaRelle, Kiley, and Dust!

I didn't get a picture of everyone that made it. By the time I remembered to take pictures about half of the party had left:( Oopsies. That's what I get for raddling my mouth too long!!! ha

From Left to Right: Josh McCann, Lee Jacobson, Rusty Bumgardner, Dust, Dexter Lewis, Jake Payne, Mike Crane, Emily Kirkwood, Shantel Johnson, Courtney College Crane, Matt Crane, and Kiley Heath and JaRelle Mason Bailey in the very front:)

Next year around this will be my turn!!! Whoa!

Lots of Love, XOXO

The Johnson Residence

I am FINALLY ready to post some before and afters of our house! Geeze Louise it's been quite the project, but we are so happy with the outcome! We have enjoyed spending time together making our first house our "home!" We have had TONS and TONS of help from Dust's parents, and we really appreciate all they have done! There are still a few things that we hope to get done this fall. ( the shutters are coming soon...deck, carpet, new living room set...and next spring we would like to start on the landscaping, and get the counter tops done!) As we gradually finish up, I will post some more pics!
