Thanksgiving and such...

Sorry these pictures are so late. There isnt much going on with us lately too exciting. Jenson is six months old now and has 2 bottom cute! We had a really great Thanksgiving...we spent it with my dads side of the family at my aunts house. It was really fun to see her...I used to live with her before I got married and then Brian and I lived in her basement apartment for the first six months of our marriage and she moved to Idaho after we bought our condo so I miss her and was really happy to see her! Anyways, here are some updated pictures of the last month...


This is the whole Hinckley family minus my dad, My uncle Steven and my cousin Tanner.

My grandma, my mom, and Jens

My sister Crystal and her hubs Doug.


This was our turkey...It was 33 pounds! My grandpa is a farmer and has a friend who raises some of the biggest turkeys in utah and gave one to my grandpa. It was the best turkey I think I have ever had...and to be honest I am not a huge turkey fan.

We..well I decorate for Christmas the day after later!

Our little Ute fan! This is the day of the BYU Utah game. Go Utes!

Here they are...two front teeth!

Well since yesterday was Thanksgiving I just wanted to express how thankful I am for my life!

I seriously have the best life ever! I have an amazing family, great friends, the gospel, the best husband and baby! Oh the list just goes on and on! My life is far from perfect though thats for sure. I have been thinking a lot lately about what makes me/people happy. Ever since I have stayed home with Jenson, Brian and I have struggled with money and it has been very stressful! I have come to the conclusion that even though we have struggled so much lately I would not change it for the world! I love staying home with Jenson...he is my biggest accomplishment and greatest blessing. With that said I just want to say thanks to all of the support our family gives us! They seriously are the best! My sister is the best sister anyone could ask for! If I need to get out of the house she lets me just go hang with her...I even get a free lunch out of it every once and a while...ok more often than not:), if I need someone to talk to about anything she is always there to listen and give advice. I couldnt ask for a better sister! Honestly, I couldnt ask for a better family...on both sides! They are all so caring and so full of charity! I love them all so much! I have learned so much from them! I have so much to be thankful for but my family is at the top of my list...and the gospel because I wouldnt have the life I have without it!

I hope that everyone had a great Thanksgiving! I would suggest if you havent already sat down and made a list(even just in your head) of everything you are thankful for or if you are having a rough time full of trials(which, lets face it most of us are, if not all) just think about all of your blessings and it always will out weigh your far! I love you all! Thanks for all you do for us!

Updated Pictures...

Sorry it has taken so long to update my blog. My computer was not letting me download pictures from my camera...super frustrating! So anyways...Jenson is getting so big I can barely keep up with him! Here are the latest pictures of our little bug! Sorry for the picture overload...

Jenson absolutely loves our dog Chrissy and Chrissy loves Jens. She just laid down on her back right next to him and they were just hanging out!

So Jenson pretty much has the biggest head ever(like his dad). So Brian put his beanie on him and it fit! It was a little long but totally fit over his funny!

Jenson fell asleep holding his toy.

Here are just some funny ones of Jenson sleeping.

We got to go to Chuck E Cheese because my neice finally was potty trained so they had a little party for her.

My Dad...

This is my family at Crystals wedding 10 months before my dad passed away. He was only 43.

It has been 5 years since my dad passed away from cancer. I remember that day so well. My dad had been in the hospital and I had visited him the day before. It was a sunday and he just seemed like he was doing so well that day. He told me that he was hungry and he wanted me to go to the store and get him something to eat before I went back to Orem. I was going to Utah Valley at the time. So I went to Albertsons and got him a blueberry muffin and an orange juice. I went back to the hospital and told him that I would see him the next weekend. I remember leaving and just crying uncontrolably even though I truly believed I would see him again in a week. The next day I went to school and when I got home I was going to go to the store with my roommate when my sister called and said that my dad probably wouldnt make it through the night. So I threw everything in a laundry hamper and headed home. When I got to the hospital my dad was completly different. He was so out of it I couldnt believe how different a day had made. So my family sat in his room while his friends came and went to say their goodbyes and then he passed away at 11:45.

It makes me sad that my dad was never able to meet Brian and be at our wedding and it makes me sad to know that he never got to meet Jenson and see him grow up. But I know that he is an angel watching over me and my family and I know that I will see him again. I love and miss you dad!

Such a Big Boy!

Jenson finally got to ride in a cart without his car seat! It was so cute! He would just hold on to the sides and look around. Here are some pictures I took...
