I get to be first! Nicole, you are such a fun person and a great Mom. I always thought of you as a little Utah girl until one time you were home from Mississippi or wherever you were living at the time and you had such an incredible southern drawl. It was so darling. It was great to see you, Dave and the kids on the 24th. Congratulations on your 4th. I hope you start to feel better soon. Thanks for all the incredible work on the blog. It is so fun to see what everyone is up to--what a wonderful way to stay connected. Love you

When I spent 11 days at Shauna's I noticed that she's very out going! She is very fun to be around! I am so lucky to have a cousin like Nicole.

Nicole you are awesome! I think you have done such a great job keeping us in touch with the blog. I find out lots more about what my kids are doing here than any phone conversations! I am so impressed with how you have such a positive attitude about everything from callings to kids. You always seem to be in the know about the latest things out there - it's always fun to see how cute your kids are dressed. We miss having you close, but know you are doing great in TN. Love- Tomi

I have so many fun memories growing up! I was always so excited when you and Natalie would come to family parties when we were little and lived out of state (I remember being really jealous of red and green dresses with big poofy slips you were wearing at Christmas one year). Also all the trips with grandma--taking the golf cart out to do a photo shoot in palm spring. Now, I'm still glad when we are both in town for family parties and I love seeing your kids growing up. You are such a good mom--they're great kids!! Congrats on number four! Mindy

What can I say...I just love Nicole! Nicole is one of my best friends! It's hard having her away but I'm lucky I still get to talk to her on the phone a lot! Nicole is a good example to me as far as church callings go. She's always giving it 110%. I admire her ability to be positive even though I know she gets homesick sometimes. She's very organized and on the ball. When you go to Nicole's house she's never just sitting around. She's a good mom & a good housekeeper. She's always up doing something or other. She's always up for an adventure and will go anywhere and do anything. She's a great listener, a great friend, a great sister!!

Nicole is such an amazing person. She is always so nice, happy, outgoing, fun to be around, a great mom, great in the church, and gosh darn it people like her. I remember when I was I think 12 I went up to Logan and stayed with Natalie and Nicole. Nicole was dating Dave at the time and I remember how "cool" I thought she was for dating such a popular man. Nicole is a great listener. Whenever I talk to her I always feel like she really cares about what I have to say. Thanks again for keeping this blog up and running. I couldn't have done it without you!

It's been a while since I looked at blogs -- guess I had better get with it here.

Of course I have many memories of Nicole but one I'll always remember was when she was little-- about five I was the Relief Society Pres. and often would take meals to people.If they lived on the military base I would just haul their dinner in our red wagon. ( Meals on Wheels) One day Nicole asked if she could go with me to deliver the meal. I said "sure". She ran in the house and I was out in the driveway with the wagon wondering what was taking her. Finally Nicole appeared and there she was with her fancy dress on that buttoned up the front (the buttons were buttoned a bit wrong) she had fixed her hair ( it was a bit off) and she was ready to go. I asked her how come she changed into her fancy dress. Her reply was
" because Relief Society ladies are supposed to look nice when they visit people who don't feel good". I think of that comment often as I head out to visit someone now.

Another thing I remember. When Nicole was in High School she was the dating queen. She had a new guy every weekend. One evening she forgot that she had told at least two, maybe three guys that she could go out with them on the same night. When that night came it became my problem and I was directing dates up the stairs and down. She's always liked to be in the middle of everything and hates to miss out on a good time.

I consider Nicole to be one of my best friends and wish she along with Natalile & soon Alyson lived close by me.

I first met Nicole when she was 5 years old. I never, ever had trouble telling Natalie and Nicole apart because they were so completely different in my eyes, they even looked different. Nicole was much quieter, but both girls were a force to be reckoned with! Nicole has always been a rock of strength in whatever it is she does. She is like her mother in that she doesn't complain, she just gets the job done. I have really enjoyed seeing her creativity shine through on the blogs and I'm sure her house is the picture of perfection, just as her kids are. One funny memory I have of both Natalie and Nicole was one time visiting them on Lombardy Lane and hearing them downstairs fighting over who was uglier! What a good laugh and what gorgeous women they've both grown into.

I have some good memories of Nicole from E.T to Lake Powell, but I remember how she was so excited to go to 7-11 to get a slurpee because I would turn the music up and roll down the windows and we would all do our best impression of Michael Jackson. Probably not something approved by the General. Of course I will always remember Nicole singing and dancing to the Rose. She could have been the next American Idol. Now I see how she has grown to be such a kind and loving person and such a great mother.

Where does a twin sister begin with one memory of someone she shares every childhood moment with? I loved all of your memories and I want you all to know that I must have been the uglier one because I never had three dates in one day:) One of my most favorite memories with Nicole was our first week at USU. We were so energetic and confident and ready for all the big world had to offer us. Little did we know that the big bad world requires responsibilites. But that's kind of what was so great, we were so nieve and two girls who just wanted to have fun!! I love no one else the same way I love my sisters!
