Tell ME it is NOT so!!


I can hardly believe that it was a year ago that the Dr. layed you in my arms for the first time. Dad and I were SO excited to have our 3rd "home made" little boyand to add #10 to the family. I don't think there are very many other children that had a welcome home party like you did. All of your siblings just loved you and couldn't get enought of you, and still drive you crazy will all the hugs and kisses. You have been the sweetest little guy since you were born. I had never before enjoyed getting up at 5:00AM til you came along. I cherished OUR morning time together while everyone else slept!! You have brought SO much joy, love, and laughter to our family. Here are just a few reasons why...

We love how you LOVE to cuddle. You are our first kid who actually loves to cuddle up with us and a blanket!

We love your smile!

We love how you cut your 4 top teeth all at the same time, so when you do smile it is the cutest thing we have ever seen!

We love how you walk like a little old man with a load in his pants!

We love that NO matter how much we try to get you to say Momma, all you say is DAdda!

We love how you love your morning oatmeal!

We love your laugh!

We love that you LOVE being outside.

We love that even though you might say Dadda all the time, you are really a Momma's boy!

We love your FAT little feet!

We love how you will crawl around and around the couch.

We love how funny you are when doggies are around!!

WE just LOVE you!!!

Happy 30th to One of My Bestest!!

(I am posting this a couple hours early since I don't want to stay up til midnight, and I have a crazy busy day tomorrow!!)
It was about ten years ago that I decided to enroll in a couple of classes at NPC. Little did I know that I would gain a best friend from that decision. Casey and I grew up together, we were in the same grade, but we were only aquaintances until we happened to be the ONLY ones that enrolled in the same NPC class. After that we became inseparable for over a year. I know that the Lord puts people in our lives for a reason, and the Lord knew I needed Casey in my life, and I would like to believe that she needed me just as much in hers at that time. So here is to remembering...


Do you remember when we would ditch class, since it was a stupid video class, and go to Circle K and get a bunch of junk food and eat ourselves into oblivian?

Do you remember when we got our ears pierced and I basically got disowned by your parents?

Do you remember driving around in your Mustang listening to "your my best friend" and singing at the top of our longs?

Do you remember how we planned our lives out...You were going to marry Nic and he was going to be a professional baseball player, and I was going to marry Justin and we were going to be poor ranchers, and we were going to live by each other?

Do you remember our road trip up to Utah for general conference?

Do you remember taking the missionary discussions at my house?

Do you remember that you decided to get baptized on February 14th while we were on our "we have no boyfriends" valentines date, and got baptized the very next day?

Do you remember when you called me scared, not knowing if you were doing the right thing, and I drove as fast as I could to pick you up and brought you to my house so we could pray together.

Do you remember when I called your house at like midnight sobbing that Justin had broke my heart once again, and you came RIGHT over?

Do you remember getting engaged the same weekend? And married a week apart? and having our first babies just 5 months apart, our 2nd babies a couple months apart, and our 3rd babies just a couple days apart?

Do you remember when we would stay up ALL night scrapbooking at the hotel?
Do you remember that beautiful day when you went to the temple for the first time and You gave me the awesome priviledge of being your escort?

I know that the list could go on and on!!! I hope you know how greatful I am for your friendship. I know that it has been hard keeping that friendship being miles apart, and we have definitely had our UPS and DOWNS, but I will always consider you one of my closest friends.
I hope you have a wonderful 30th birthday!! I love ya girl!!!

Baby Shower ~

Last week we FINALLY threw Jessica and Little Lewie a baby shower. We had lots of fun and some dang yummy food!! I still am amazed at this little boy and what a miracle he is!! What an amazing experience it has been for our entire family to be part of such a miracle. My testimony grows everytime I hold him and realize what he AND his parents have been through over the last three months, as they welcomed him into this world and just a week later faced open heart surgery not knowing if all the heartache and pain would be worth the fight. I marvel and Jessica and Alvin's strength as they have faced this challenge head on!

We hope Little Lewis knows how much he is LOVED!!!

Jessica and is kind of crazy to think that my little nieces are little mommas!!

Getting Prepared

We barrowed the Cannery's canner from my Aunt Val on Saturday and worked on our year supply. After we got done canning about 100 cans, my hubby said," I never thought I would say this, BUT...I think we have our year supply!!!!! What a great feeling. We have our three month supply and now our year I have got to work on having a money reserve. (We stink at saving!!) I am so greatful that I married a man who finds year supply a priority!

Doesn't he look thrilled?!! He NEVER smiles for the camera

This picture makes it look like we didn't do much...but I promise we did!!

Rice, Beans, Wheat, & Cream of Wheat

We also canned, powdered sugar, granulated sugar, Top Ramen, & really was a lot of fun!!!

Girls Night OUT!

This past weekend was the Father & Sons outing, so us girls decided to go have some fun in the big town of Payson! I invited my sister and her two girls and we went and ate at Chili's then went bowling and of course did some shopping! We had a BLAST! The little girls were so cute and fun to watch bowl. Amelia took a little while to warm up to the idea of everyone watching her and shouting when she would knock the pins over, but Mary and Eva are both little hams and kept us laughing.
Thanks girls for the FUN night! Lets do it again SOON!!

Amelia, MJ, and Eva modeling their awesome shoes!

Don't ask!!! I get a little crazy when I get let out of my cage!!!

Poor Miles wasn't old enough to go with his dad, so he had to spend the night chillen with the ladies! He was SO funny, it was cosmo night at the bowling allie, and he LOVED the lights and kept wanting to follow the balls down the lane...He wore us OUT!
I assume that the Father/Sons went well since all of my boys came back alive!! Thanks to my honey for being man enough to take 7...yes I said SEVEN...boys out there with you!! You're the BEST dad EVER!!!

Brandon called me Friday saying that he thought it would be a great night for tin foil dinners, so he could try out the new fire pit he had built...I am not going to lie, I wasn't too excited about it since in my opinion they are a LOT of work!! But I told him that if he wanted them we could go ahead and make em. Well, I lucked out cause I was gone delivering baby shower invitations, and by the time I got home he had already done all the work and had them made and on the fire!! Seriously they were the BEST tin foil dinners I have ever had!!

Way to go BABE!!! You're the BEST!!
