Last week we had the opportunity to celebrate one AMAZING BOY!!! It was Brock's birthday and he got to have a huge water fight with his friends, a party with cousins, baptism, and family luncheon. It was a great weekend. We are so proud of the decision he made to be baptized and join the church. We love you Brock!
Dustin and I met at ISU almost 18 years ago in a class his dad told him not to bother taking! In May we will celebrate our 17th anniversary of being married in the Idaho Falls temple. Dustin is the most incredible man I know. I am inspired by how deeply he cares about being an awesome husband and amazing dad. He loves to work in the yard and make our home a great place to be. I can truly say time definetly flies by when your having fun.
Our First! Our Angel!
These are pictures of our first child, Braxton. He was born June 14, 1996 and passed away September 23, 1996. He was born with breathing problems and eventually passed away from complications of pneumonia. I can't believe he would be 14. We miss our little angel and we are sure he is busy being a missionary in Heaven.
MaKady, what can I say... She loves to cheer, read, write, shop and has just discovered the fun of blogging. Click on her picture and it will take you to her blog. She is loyal, kind and a great friend. She wears her heart on her sleeve, laughs when others laugh, cries when others cry. She has discovered the joy of making her own money. What a JOY she is in our family.
Meggan is so much fun to describe. She always brings a smile to your face. She loves to dance, play soccer, read, and tease her brother and sisters. She thinks of others before herself. She loves a good joke. She has many hidden talents. Ask her to share them with you. Meggan is also a huge help around the house. Meggan would eat ice cream 3 times a day plus snacks and dessert. It is her favorite food, especially if there is a cherry on top. Meggan is great at making friends she wants everyone to feel included. Were glad she's part of our family.
Brock is all BOY! He only has two speeds fast and faster. He is so much fun to visit with, he always asks great questions. Brock loves to climb poles, walls, mountains, anything. Brock makes friends with everyone, people standing in line, cashiers, the girl who cuts his hair pretty much anyone who looks interesting. They are just friends he hasn't met yet. Brock loves to work with his dad. Brock also loves school. Brock loves tools and weapons so he defintely holds his own in this house of girls. He is so full of love. We are grateful for the addition he is to our family!
Gracie is growing up so fast! What happened to my baby? Yes she gets away with more then the other kids because no matter what she will always be my baby. She is so determined "stubborn" to get what she wants, do what she wants and we hope that she is always determined for the right things. Gracie loves to play "makeover" and if none of her sisters want to play you can find her giving all of the dolls in our house new looks. Gracie is a sweetheart!
I am lucky enough to get to be a SAHM of 4 amazing kids as you can see by the pictures on this page. I am married to my best friend and I look forward to any time we get to spend together. I have a great family. My 2 sisters are my best friends and my brothers are pretty awesome as well. My dad passed away 7 years ago and my mom is now married to a wonderful guy. I'm glad she isn't alone but we sure miss having her close by. I love to read a good book, organize a drawer or closet in fact I like to organize other peoples drawers and closets just ask my sisters. I still like to color and love opening a new box of crayons. I love shoes my favorite saying when I was pregnant was "no matter how big I am I can always find a cute pair of shoes" I don't know what my excuse is now I just like them. I am grateful for so many blessings I don't think there is room enough to list them.
