Well, another summer is creeping up on us, and I am so excited to announce that we are going to Washington D.C! I was lucky enough to see the capitol on the church history trip my senior year of high school, and now I get to call it home for four months! I cannot wait to take a little trip to New York City, which is only an hour and a half away! It will be a great summer!

Brylee Louise Sorenson

On Saturday, me, Dustin, Kayla and Brady all went up to see our new little neice! I could not believe how big she is and how much hair she has for a brand new baby! She is so sweet! Cole and Heather are great parents and we are so happy for them!

Go Steelers!!!

The Superbowl at the Johnson residence is the funnest holiday of the year! Candi makes all sorts of goodies, and eating is one of my favorite parts! We all have our names on the Superbowl boards, which makes it more exciting than just the game itself! Although, none of us EVER win, thanks to Kevin's family, it is still fun "wishing." We were, of course, rooting for our beloved Steelers, and they never let us down! I cannot wait for their 7th win next year!!!! GO STEELERS!

Candi watching the Big Game!

We love the Steelers!

Happy Anniversary

On January 22, my mom and Jerry celebrated their 4 year anniversary. I am so happy that they found each other, and Jerry has been such a wonderful step-dad! They have been so good to Dustin and I, and letting us stay with them while we worked on our house! I loved being back home! THANK YOU MOM AND JERRY! They are such great examples to Dustin and I, and on August 22 they were sealed for time and all eternity in the Manti Temple. I am so proud of them and their decision to be sealed! I love my mom so much and I am so happy that she has found someone that makes her happy. I am eternally greatful for Jerry and all he has done for me and my mom! I love you both so much!!! Happy Anniversary!

State Drill Team Competition

Kayla had to take some of the cheerleaders up to the State Drill Team Competition. Since only 4 were going she invited me, my mom and Tiffany to go with. I was so glad that I was able to watch my cousin Tyra perform, and see all the hard work that they had all put into their dances! She did a great job. My cousin Emily is the advisor, and she has done a great job with the girls. You can tell they just love her. We had a great time! Thanks Kayla!

We were all a little loopy after a while! We got up way too early!!!

What We Have Been Up To....

First and foremost, I wanna say congratulations to Cole and Heather! Their sweet little girl was born this morning at 4:45a.m. She is absolutely gorgeous with lots of black hair, and she looks just like her daddy! We are so happy for them, and we cannot wait to see her! And when I get some pictures I will be sure to post them asap!
I am going to try to cram as much in to this post as possible to feel somewhat caught up on my bare with me!
The day after Thanksgiving we left for the Platinum Cruise to Mexico! It was so much fun,and I really miss that warm weather! We made 3 stops: Acapulco, Manzanillo, and Zijuantanajo! Every year the cruise is so much fun! We get to meet so many new people from Platinum and other parts of the world!

The houses were so neat!

I was getting stung by little jelly-fish! There were thousands of baby ones swimming around! Ouch!

We have been spending 99% of the time working on the house! It is now completely remodelled (our kitchen floor comes tomorrow!) and we are finally living here! It is so nice to finally have a "home." Dustin and his mom have done most of the work since I have been working so much, but all the hard work has finally paid off! We have just a few more things to move in, and....WE WILL BE DONE! Yay!


Kayla and I decided to join the adult dance class at Geena's Dance Works in Gunnison. It has been so much! It is so funny to watch all of us try to clog after years of being in clogging! In December we performed at the Christmas recital. I was so nervous I could have thrown up! I had only been to four or five practices and I knew I was going to mess up!...and...yep, I the very beginning! Hadlee also performed and she did such a great job. She is in ballroom and her and her partner looked so cute! They are only 4 and 5, so it was so stinkin' cute to see them up there with kids from elementary to high school!


For New Year's Eve, Dustin and I went up to Luke and Mariah's. We all had so much playing guitar hero, watching BMX, eating, and just talking!

Playing "Chubby Bunny!" It was hilarious! That girl got 14 marshmallows in her mouth and I about gagged at 4! AMAZING, that's all I have to say!

Mariah and her cute Pregnant belly!

On Christmas Eve, my grandma Bernitta was admitted in to Gunnison hospital with an oxygen level of 45%! Her hands, feet, and lips were bright purple. My mom and Jerry took her to the hospital and she was diagnosed with Congestive Heart Failure. After a few days they sent her to Utah Valley's ICU where she stayed for two weeks! On my birthday, my mom and I took a trip up north to have lunch at P.F Changs, see grandma, and go to the movie "Marley and Me!" It was a great birthday, and I am so glad that grandma was able to come home shortly after!


A few weeks ago, Dustin and I babysat for Kristi and Kris while they went to market! (Kristi is Jerry's neice that I work for in Richfield) It was so much fun! We watched movies, ate pizza, played Rock Band, and much more! The first night we rented Gameplan. Jessi wanted Dustin to do lifts with her like the little girl did in her ballet recital! It was so cute, and that little girl can dance her heart out!!!
