February and March Update!!

February was a CRAZY month!!! It started out real shitty.
On February 3rd my Grandpa Dickerson passed away at age 67. It was completely unexpected he had just gone snowmobiling 5 days prior. He died from instant cardiac death. He was an amazing man and is greatly missed. He was friends with everyone everywhere he went. He was one of the funniest people I knew and could always make you laugh. He also had a very strong testimony of the gospel and loved to share it. We love you Grandpa Dickerson!!
-February 3rd also was my mom’s birthday!! Ya crappy birthday for her! She is an amazing women and such a hard worker. She curses like a sailor and definitely has got some attitude, but it’s why you love her. Everything she does is for someone else, never for herself. She is such a great example to me and I hope one day I can be as great of a mom and person as she is!! I LOVE YOU MOM

-February 6th was Brets birthday!!YIPPY Skippy he’s so old :) haha He turned 24!! I love my Bret!! He is such a great husband and is a Haylie Pleaser, meaning he does anything he can do to make me happy. I don’t know how I got so lucky! He constantly is making me laugh, If you have ever hung out with him you know why. He is just a goof ball; I call him my child because he acts like a giddy excited kid all the time. You very rarely will see him not smiling. He also is an extremely hard work and very self-motivated. He as some wild ideas sometimes but if it’s something he really wants then he puts his mind to it and gets it done. Everyone deserves a Bret in their lives because he is just that awesome!! :) Because he is so awesome we had a birthday party for him at the Flowrider in Riverwoods, then dinner at Betos (his choice), then the boys played call of duty. It was a fun night and I hope he had a great birthday. (Pictures to come)

-The weekend of the 5th and 6th we went and stayed in Park City with Bret’s parents and Brock and Jamie and little Crew!! Saturday we went snowboarding at Park City. It was a freezing cold day. Sunday we work up to the place decorated for Bret’s birthday and went and visited Grandma Janet. That night we ordered food from the Loco Lizard and hung out and watched the super bowl! It was fun to get to have them all in town and hang out.  

-Valentine’s Day! I got heart attacked in our hallway by Bret with hearts saying why he loves me. Then later that day my car got attacked by balloons, candy, and other fun things. Later though it also got a surprise wash so I wouldn’t have to clean it all off. Bret also got me an hour massage!! Can’t wait to use it. We then went to Outback for dinner and hung out at home with each other. It was a wonderful Valentine’s Day 
-My brother Morgan also had his birthday on February 15th. He finally turned 16!! Watch out girls and everyone on the roads :) haha I love this boy he is a funny kid and isn’t so little anymore. He is one of my big little brothers.  Happy birthday Morgy!

-My mother in law had her birthday on the 17th of February!! She is a funny lady. And a great mother to her kids and is always willing to do anything to help out. We love her! Happy Birthday Kathy :)

-On February 18 we headed to Las Vegas for my little sister Heathers Cheer Nationals. They did awesome, except she had broken her foot and growth plate the weekend before at her level 10 gymnastics meet. She couldn’t tumble or do her jumps, but she still went out and did her stunts and dancing. We had a fun weekend down there going shopping watching the competition and we also went on the big shot on the top of the Stratosphere. It was so much fun; you lose your stomach so many times on that ride. We did it at night so we were looking over the whole city with all the lights, it was sweet. It was a nice long weekend get away!

-The next weekend was another adventure for us! Our friends Shauna and Derek invited us up to their cabin in Bear Lake to go snowmobiling for Derek’s birthday. The trip started off with us, Sky and Taylor, and Kelsey and Brienne heading up later then everyone else in the Escalade and pulling a trailer in the dark. Well we hit the worst snow storm ever!! We couldn’t see even 5 feet in front of us and you couldn’t tell where the road was because the snow made everything look the same. So we were going about 5mph and looking for the poles on the side of the road to now that we were on track. Then all of the sudden we were off the road and stuck in the snow with our car slightly tilted sideways J 2 cold hours later and $ to a tow truck we finally were on the road again and made it to bear lake at 3 am and then got stuck again in the drive way road up to the cabin :) the next 2 days we went snowmobiling and hung out. It was super fun. Until on Sunday the boys were climbing a hill with the sleds and coming back down another side of the hill. Yes Brets goes up and doesn’t come back down. I then see him on the side of the mountain at the top of a cliff with no sled. No matter how hard he leaned he could get the sled to steer away from the cliff so at the last second he bailed and sent the sled off a 15-20 foot cliff. Sky and the other boys rode up there and they all jumped off the cliff and started digging the sled out. Me and Taylor started hiking up the hill (definitely a workout in 3 ft of snow) so we could see if everything was alright. Lucky the sled was fine because it had landed in 4ft of fresh powder and no one was hurt. A fun, wild, and adventurous weekend!!! Thanks Shauna and Derek for inviting us 
-Happy Birthday Paige!! My little sister Paigey turned 9! She is such a crazy girl with so much energy!! Bret is her best friend!! They even have a secret hand shake and she loves when we come over so he can play with her. I love that spaz of a girl!!

-HAPPY BIRTHDAY BROCK! On March 7th was my Brother Brock’s birthday! He is seriously such a funny kid! I love that boy! Him and Morgan make you laugh every time you are with them and they say the darnest things. He is 18 now and will be graduating in May and then next year leaving on his mission! Crazy how old all my siblings are getting!! I hope his birthday was awesome! 

-The adventures never stop at our house! The next week, the first weekend in March we headed to AZ for 4 days as part of my spring break. It was great we went to the lake even though the water was really really cold! We went to the Ipic Theater. It’s a way nice movie theater!! We of course went shopping! AZ has the best shopping so it’s a must do every time we are down there. We made sure to eat at Bret’s all-time favorite restaurant Blanco. It’s always nice to have a fun weekend getaway to AZ and hang out with our family that’s down there.
-March 9 my brother Kyle came home from his mission. Last April he had surgery on his right shoulder rotators cuff before leaving on his mission. Then about 6 weeks before he came home he was playing basketball and his arm got pulled back and he tore his rotators cuff again and chipped the bone. The doctors said he needed surgery right away. So home he came to get surgery done on his shoulder again. He is doing awesome and the surgery went great! I love having him home! I had missed that boy! 
-As for everyday life, I am still in school and busy with test, homework, clinicals, and work. Bret is busy with work and school and gone this week on a business trip. Other than that we are just dandy and doing great!! This was a super long update and I am sorry if I have just completely bored you. I will try and be better!
