Movies and smiles

In abbeys gifted class they are making a community. She chose the movie theatre by our house. She is so proud. She dictated the size of the cuts we made on the boxes and told us where everything with hot glue was to be placed. She's so darn awesome!!

Pict of actual theatre

Abbeys version. All the kids at school kept stopping by to say it the movies by our house or it looks just like the movies! Each phrase made her little shy smile get a little bigger.
Good job abs we love you!

We did thanksgiving in St David with brian's brothers family this year. We had a great time.

Kassidy made all the napkins for us after a long Internet search. Very cool flowers!

Brian, kass, Charlotte, abs.

Brian put on his dads tie thinking he was so very funny and it was!

Abs saying cheese so she could eat!

I am so thankful for all I have especially an extended family that makes me feel so loved!

Birthdays and laughs

Today is brian's birthday! So glad he came home so we could celebrate. What does any good dad do on his birthday? Buy his girls presents!!! A day full of shopping for him ended up a day full of shopping for us. He is so great that I know he wouldn't have it any other way. We got him the shirts he's always wanted but would not spend the money on and a coupon for running shoes of his choice:) I don't know what we would do without him!!!

Eating dessert of peanut butter cookies in bed watching shark week! Does it get better?- nope

Might be my fav pict of all time. This is life in our house. Any one good shot takes a million of these to get. Life is good!

Super 6

So our little girl is 6! She is living it too! All day she has put the phrase that's how six year olds do (insert activity here)! So funny.

We love her so much. She's our trouble making, makeup using, fib telling, loophole finding, laughter making, kind hearted girl. Life would have so much less in it without her. She is the first to do something wrong and the first to tell me thank you or make me feel like a million bucks.

We love you abs!

Got a guitar and headset and loves to rock it out- until you catch her then she stops. So shy even at home with us.

All dressed up and ready for church.

So today after church we made her bday meal. All she asked for was taco salad(so easy!). Then she said she wanted to eat it in her pajamas- right on. Then she said now that I'm six I'm a big girl so I want to eat it on the couch! I love that she thinks big equals eating on the couch! Guess i've said enough times you can eat on the couch when you're big! She's our crafty loop hole finding gal too! We joke she will be the Johnny Cochran of her time! She's cleaver.

Love you

You will be missed

After a two week battle with the fastest spreading and most agressive cancer, we lost a great great man.

Papa Larry you will be missed more than I can say.

I just can't believe that 2 weeks and 2 days from being diagnosed with cancer he's gone. He was in so much pain. He is now painfree and starting an important job for the lord. I am grateful to know the atonement of our lord and savior Jesus Christ makes it possible for us to return to him. I'm even more grateful to know that we can be families for eternity. This brings comfort in our time of sorrow. I know we will see him again.

We love you Larry.

Taken mothers day just before we took him to the hospital to get help for his pain.

Easter picnic

We went to an army Easter party the Saturday before Easter. It was not a very good idea. Long long lines and too many people.

They had Easter egg hunts divided into age groups. Kassidy went first they had 2000 eggs in the little playground below and unleashed over 100 kids aged 7-11! Yeah. It was a mess. Kassidy my non fighter got none. She's the one in the picture in the white shirt looking unamused that I made her go in! They had to give out prizes to all the kids that got nothing!
Abbey saw all the tears of the big kids and decided she wasn't going to do hers.

The girls had fun doing the bungee run. Abbey couldn't even get the bungee to stretch!

Finally we waited in line for free popcorn. Had it eaten before we made it to the free snowcones then called it a day! Love this picture of my super cool and sassy ladies!

Trying the new app from my phone that is supposed to help me blog update from anywhere. I am so busy and keep most Picts on my phone so this thing never gets updated!

Let's hope it works.

This is a test pict of the girls from Easter.

My life feels like this....

So I've disappeared, I've been told! Here is why...
Brian is gone (again) he can't see our blog so I slack
Decided to finish school since I am so close to being done (5 more classes after the 3 i am taking and then i can apply to the nursing program to be a labor and delivery nurse)
Brian is in command for his unit which makes me the "mom" to all 75 wives and their problems.
Church keeps me busy too!
So to the world I look like this.....
All put together and getting it done. but.......

I feel like this!

Ha Ha Ha
No life isn't that bad! Just makes me giggle.
It's harder than I thought giving up my awesome mom do what ever i want when i want lifestyle to go to school. It will be good. It gives me a new purpose and it's so my little ladies can go to school and have no worries or loans!
Life Is GOOD!!!

Run, Dylan, run!

So my super buddy/nephew Dylan is just awesome!
This past weekend he ran in the PF Changs Rids rock run. He ran for our favorite foundation the Sydney hudson foundation (if you ever feel inclined to donate to a fab thing this is it!)
I understand that he was amazing and came in the very top of the runners. He is so great.

Love this picture because he is a time man. I mean he is ALL about time and if you say a time you better be prepared to be prompt or suffer the wrath of Dylan. So here he is pointing to his wrist that it is time to get this wagon train a rollin'!

Check me out man! I got a medal! Who's cool now?! ME
Life would not be the same without D. He brings a simple joy to everything. He keeps you young and makes you play. I am pretty sure he's one of the coolest people on the planet and if he could talk he'd tell me the same thing about me!! ha ha
Love you bud!
