Recent Happenings

Jeff's brother Justin got married this weekend and we got lots of fun pictures. We LOVE his new wife Whitney. She's kinda shy around the family, but I'm sure that will change once she gets to feel more comfortable around us all. She's gotta be able to hold her own in the Baumann household! They got married in the Jordan River Temple and the weather was so perfect for them! Low 50's - which is VERY warm for mid-February believe it or not. Anyhow, here are a few pictures.

Valentine's Cookies for Uncle Taylor

Last Thursday, Mason and I made Valentine's cookies for Taylor to send him in the MTC. Mason helped me make the dough and the frosting, then we had a blast eating them! I had Taylor's picture on the counter so Mason could maybe grasp who we were making the cookies for - half way through our adventure, he told me, "kiss La-lor". He wanted to kiss Taylor - so I got a cute picture of that too.

I've Been Tagged! All about Jeff...

Where did you meet your husband?
Well it's a long story. The first time we met was in 2003 at my guy friends' apartment in Provo. He didn't pay me any attention. Then I met him again in 2005 after my mission in Provo - he was my neighbor and in my singles ward.

How long did you date before you were married?
We started dating in July of 2005 and were married at the end of April, 2006.

How long have you been married?
it will be 3 years in April

What does he do that surprises you?
He'll sometimes let me hold the remote control. j/k!!! Um...occasionally he'll bring me flowers, clean the whole house when I'm out running errands, or call me from work just to say hi.

What is your favorite feature of his?
Physical feature? His legs. He's got such strong legs!

What is his best quality?
He is the hardest worker I know.

Does he have a nickname for you?
Hottie. lol that's so gay!

What is his favorite food?
His mom's homemade Mac and Cheese. I've tried to make it - I guess it can't be duplicated, cuz it turned out AWFULLY!

What is his favorite sport?
Volleyball for sure, but he loves to watch basketball (the Utah Jazz) and football (go BYU Cougars!)

When and where was your first kiss?
It was in June (yes, before we started to date!) - there was a ward camping trip in Moab and we kissed there...with another girl on the other side of him (she was infatuated with him - she was also my ride home. That was not a good ride home!)

What is your favorite thing to do as a couple?
Honestly, we love to relax and watch t.v. together or play board games. We also love to go to pro volleyball tournaments together, but that's only like once a year.

Do you have any children?
one kid - Mason. He's almost 2.

Does he have any hidden talents?
He does the most amazing, realistic monkey impression

Who said I love you first?
I really don't remember. I remember where we were (at a park by the Provo temple...taking a rest from the motorcycle ride), but not who said it first.

What is his favorite music?
He loves 90's rock, Alicia Keys, and Bruce Hornesby.

What do you admire most about him?
His work ethic and his determination to be a better person.

What is his favorite color?
green for sure. One look at his wardrobe will tell you that. He's got like 15 shirts in different shades of green.

Will he read this?
No - he never reads the blog

Mason's Gotta Win!!

Jeff and I entered Mason into a Cutest Baby photo contest. The prize is a $2500.00 scholarship! The catch is that the public votes - not judges - so we need your votes!!!

Get everyone you know to vote for him too! :) THANK YOU!!!
