Saying goodbye....

The Wheat family had a German exchange student staying with them for three weeks. They had this planned way before the idea of me living with them had come up and the day she came was the day I moved in :) Her name is Nadja. She is 16 and now just like a sister to us all!! While here in Utah; Nadja got to site see, experiance the LDS Church (she is catholic) have three sisters, ride and drive a four wheeler, get glitter toes, a night in Park City and totally loved from a great family! It was so hard to have her leave when she did, she is missed so much!! She was such a sweet and very funny girl! Here are a few pictures from her being here.

Hot tubing in Park City, relaxing at the Sand Dunes, Hanging out at the Dunes...

So a quick story, Lisa made German pancakes for breakfast one day because Nadja was here and when Lisa told her that's what they were Nadja started to laugh and said this is not German pancakes so.... one day Nadja made us real German pancakes and they were oh so good! Very different from ours :) Anyways.... so she has never had american pancakes so the night before she had to leave we all went out at 10:30 to Village in to get american pancakes and have one last get together with her. Here are some pictures from that....

Happy Birthday Michaela

My little sister Michaela turned 19! To celebrate we went to Park City overnight. Michaela invited our cousin Jessica, Maddi (one of the girls I live with) and Nadja who is a foreign exchange student from Germany staying with us. We stayed at Randy & Cindy's Deer Valley home. The girls loved it!! Nadja has really enjoyed the mountains, so to be right there in it was amazing for her. For dinner we went to Main Street Pizza & Noodle Co. then home to hot tub and watch a movie and in the morning everyone slept in, ate breakfast then of course we went to the Tanger Outlet Mall to do some SHOPPING!! :)

Here we are out to dinner. I did Nadja and Maddi's makeup.... I thought it looked really good, they even have fake eyelashes on! :)Jessica and Michaela in the hot tub....

Weekend in Meeker

My little sister Michaela, our little Chihuahua Maddixx and I went to Meeker, CO to visit with our oldest sister Brandy, her two kidlits and our mother. We left really late Friday night and ended up getting caught in a really bad snow storm. The storm was the long stretch from Heber City to Vernal... It wasn't fun at all.

After our scary and very long drive we finally made it to the small town of Meeker around 12:30am. I was so tired and also really anxious to get out of my car!

Saturday my sister Brandy had to work so my mom, Michaela, Ashlynn, Maddixx and I decided to head to a town called Craig about an hour from Meeker. My nephew Austin didn't want to come so he stayed with his friends and we had a nice little girls right, beside Maddixx. When we got to Craig we got lunch and then we took a tour around the town. I liked Craig a lot more than Meeker. There is seriously NOTHING to do in Meeker. Craig is a lot bigger and had much more to do. Craig is a small town but not nearly as small as Meeker. We headed back to my sisters and spent the rest of the night watching movies and hanging out. It was good to see my mom and nephew. Michaela and I both hadn't seen them in a while. It was a nice short trip and our drive back to Utah was very smooth.
