Evans Family Pictures

When we were down in Arizona, we set up Stacey's camera on a tripod and took some family pictures. Which one is your favorite?

A brief update

Jason: Working hard at being a dad, provider and excellent husband. He doesn't even get mad at me when I wake him up in the middle of the night and ask him to cuddle me when I have a nightmare.

Jessie: Working hard at being a mom, photographer, cheer coach and wife. Dinner may come from the freezer more often than it used to, but I can assure you it's microwaved with love.

Norah: Hardly having to work at being the cutest baby ever (it just comes natural). Not only survived, but was a champ on her first airplane ride. Had so much fun visiting cousins, aunts, uncles, grandparents and great-grandparents in Arizona. A HUGE thank-you to Grandma Vance for playing with Norah while mommy shot a wedding.

At first, Norah was really afraid to fly on the airplane ...

But then her daddy calmed her down, and told her how much fun she was going to have ...

And since there were 70 empty seats on our flight, the flight crew let us carry on her car seat. So we buckled her up safe and sound ...

And we flew safely off into the sunset!

We were also able to see and spend some time with my grandpa who also happened to be visiting Arizona at the same time. It's always so nice to visit with him, and I loved being able to show off my beautiful baby!

Summer work party

Jason's company does a company party in the summer and this year we went up to Snowbird to enjoy all their summer activities. Unfortunately, having a baby limits what you can do, but we had a good time anyway. The one activity we were all able to do was ride the tram to the top. I had no idea what I was getting myself into, and while I used to think I was pretty fearless, we soon discovered I have inherited my dad's fear of heights (who knew?!) It wasn't being at the top that freaked me out, it was the tram ride to and from. Yikes. Anyway, lovely view = lovely pictures.

Oh and my husband? A total hottie.

Made over

After reading this post, my mom went shopping with me and helped me pick out cute clothes. Really, I couldn't have done it without her. She and the sales lady had me trying on outfits I would have never considered in my wildest dreams. And I ended up buying a lot of them, sorry bank account. But ya know what? I'm really not that sorry ... because how cute is this shirt?!

Thank you Mom for all the fashion advice!! (and thank you Carlie for taking my picture)

Norah's Blessing

This past Sunday, September 5th, we blessed our beautiful baby girl. I am absolutely heartbroken that this is the only picture we took on our camera.

Thanks to my mother-in-law for this picture:

And my mom for these:

I am also beyond heartbroken that I didn't get any pictures with Norah and my family, I can't believe I let that happen. But other than the depressing lack-of-picture with my family situation, the day was beautiful. Some of the things Jason blessed Norah with are:

* Gift of faith
blessing and strength to those around you believe
* Obedient to parents
close to
*Virtuous woman
* Example
* Draw close to those things that bring you closer to the Savior
* Overcome trials
* Have Lord with you at all times
* Hold fast the the gospel
* Marry in the temple to a worthy priesthood holder

Thank you so much to those who came and supported us! We love you all :)

Stewart Falls Hike

Jason's family came into town for Labor Day Weekend and Norah's blessing. We were so excited to have them visit and had planned a fun hike to the Timp Cave on Saturday. By the time we got up to AF Canyon, all the cave tour tickets were sold out (whaaa? I didn't know this could happen) so we quickly came up with Plan B, hiking Stewart Falls. About half-way up, my niece Carys and I decided we were going to start a "we don't like this hike" club. But regardless, it was nice to do something different.

Girls Day

Last week I had a fun day with my baby, mom and sisters. First, Rylie and I had our eyebrows waxed by Carlie who is going to hair school at Renaissance:

Then we went to my parents house and my mom and I made and canned salsa

While Rylie entertained Norah:
