The Big 30!


Ok, as most of you know yesterday was my 30th birthday. Thanks to everyone who went out of thier way to make it special for me. My day started out fairly uneventful until my lovely co-workers decided to completly trash my Tahoe with 1000 bags of Ramen noodles, candy, balloons, black crepe paper, you name it, it was in my car. On top of that they wrote all over the windows things like "Honk, I'm 30" (which people did by the way) "Happy Birthday, sexy 30 year old driver" stuff like that. The day ended with dinner with my Mom & Dad and good friends Jen & Brandon Mizar and thier kids. All I have to say to you guys is EVERYONE has a birthday! :) I must say though 30 is not what I thought it would be. Yet. The past 10 years have been full of ups and downs, marriage, divorce, kids, moving through 3 different states, losing friends, making friends and missing friends. I hope the next 10 years are less and more eventful in many different ways. If you know me though then you know I will be taking the long way no matter what path I may choose! :) Love Ya'll! Heidi

Alright! Alright!


OK, OK, OK! So I know that I have not blogged for a while and I have heard about it from almost everyone I know but seriously there has really not been much going on around here. The weather was nice for a while until this weekend and then it took a dive again, now we are back in the 40's. I absolutley HATE the cold weather, I wish I lived in Hawaii! Speaking of paradise, my friend Sarah and her hubby Tyler are there right now as we speak celebrating their 10th anniversary. I have been recieving daily text messages reminding me how much fun they're having. Last night she told me they were drinking a bottle of Malibu with my name on it but I told her that was impossible because I'm pretty sure I drank that bottle Saturday night:) I hope they are having fun though because if anybody deserves it, it's them. Love you guys! Greyson and Andee are doing well, Grey is REALLY excited for school to get out and Andee is REALLY excited for school to start. I think they are both looking forward to it warming back up though so they can get back outside. I however will be heading off to the dentist in the morning for yet another root canal, needless to say that's about all I'm thinking about right now. Good times at the Jewell's. I promise to update more frequently, hope ya'll are doing well. Happy Spring! H

Hostler's Train Show!


This weekend was the annual Hostler's Train Show at the Union Station in Ogden. We went down for a while and the kids got to check out TONS of model trains in all different sizes. There were even plenty of Thomas the Train sets and also a Lego train display that was very cool! After visiting all the display's and seeing all of the Super Nerds & Wierdos that attend this show yearly, we went out and the kids got to climb around on all the real locomotives they have stationed right outside of the museum. Needless to say the kids had fun regardless of all the creepy pedifiles that were hanging out around there. I must say, people are really wierd sometimes. This week has been another busy one for us, the kids have been spending alot of time outdoors because the weather has been so nice. Hope everyone is doing well! Heidi

Yea!!! The Gateway!


I know it has been a while since I have posted anything, it has been a CRAZY week! I finally had a weekend off with actually nothing planned so I planned something and took the kids and their cousin Brigham down to the Children's Museum at the Gateway. For those of you who don't live here, the Gateway is an awesome outdoor adventure with shopping, restaurants and activities for everyone! We rode the Front Runner train down to Salt Lake City and walked the 2 blocks over. Needless to say the kids had a blast and I think the train was their favorite part, I know it was mine! If you get a chance to do this ever, please do! It is enjoyable for everyone! Also, Happy Birthday today to my sister Wendy! I won't mention your age, all that really matters is that your older than me! :) Heidi

Snack time, which includes carrots, apples or sugar cubes has on many occasions resulted in fights, biting ears, shoving siblings off the hill and down right temper tantrums!

Cortney Woolsey, Miss High School Rodeo Utah

Cortney Woolsey, Miss High School Rodeo Utah
Cortney is in the family and she just won Miss High School Rodeo Utah and is now going on to compete in Nationals in New Mexico I think. Very expensive trip for her family so they had a benefit on Saturday to try and raise funds for her. Andee thought she was for sure a princess. Good Luck Cortney we will all be rooting for you!

Brett Earl Benefit

Brett Earl Benefit
Last month on the eve of Easter, Greyson's friend and classmate Taj lost his dad to a very sudden unexpected heart attack. Brett was 38 years old and left his wife and 4 children with no life insurance. It was very sad but the entire community came together to help raise funds for the family. A benefit was held at Powder Mountain with a silent auction, BBQ, bake sale and numerous other activities with 100% of the proceeds going to the Earls. My generous boss, Dr. Engleby donated funds for me to make some crafts to auction off and it went VERY well! Everything was sold and $10,000+ was raised for the family.

Poor Sage had all of his hair shaved off this week for summer and if you live around here then you know that summer is definitley not here! After a week of downpours and snow storms poor Sagers is freezing! So he's had to wear a jacket out and I think you can tell from the look on his face, he's humiliated! :)

Vegas has a new bed!

Vegas has a new bed!
This is the new bed of choice for Vegas, much to my protest she loves sleeping here! What's the big deal you ask? 14 feet up high. However if you have owned a cat then you know they do not care what you think and the more you try to persuade them not to behave this way, the more they do. Whatever Vegas!
