A Christmas Eve Discussion

Just thought I'd share this little video I took of Quinton on Christmas Eve. He's funny. I love how kids are when you are trying to coax answers out of them. I'm going to share our Christmas pics later this week. Enjoy!

The Dweebiest of All...

Every Christmas my family gets together and does a white elephant game, better known as "dweebies." Each year the competition gets a little more lax but secretly we are all dying to have the best of the best dweebies. Yesterday we did this little game and I was quite impressed with Bryan's gift, which he won courtesy of Kristy. I just had to laugh!

*soft and Hygienic

*Built in deodorant keeps feet smelling fresh

*No more bending over to mop up spills

*Disposable and biodegradable

*Enviornmentally safe.

Ready for the pic.....I know you are!
Thanks Kristy.

9 years...a couple of kids...and a few pounds!

Today Bryan and I celebrate 9 years being married. It's so crazy how time has just flown by. I just can't believe how incredibly lucky I am.
Bryan has been there every single, grueling step of the way. He's been my nurse after several surgeries and after giving birth to two children. He has been my confidante when no one else could listen. He's my rock when I'm weak. He's my personal religious consultant.

He's an incredible father to two boys who love him so much and both squeal when "daddy" walks through the door. He has stood by me in both good and bad times and I feel so lucky for it all! I love him so much and would do anything for him. He's my best friend and my eternal companion.
I have rarely seen a man look at a woman they way Bryan looks at me. I use to never be able to appreciate this but have learned to love it and even look for it on occasion. After 9 years together I don't imagine I could feel any happier. But I know with each passing day I will get happier and happier.

Thanks baby for 9 amazing years and your strength and love! Happy Anniversary!

A little weekday fun...

Quinton had been begging to do a ginger bread house. We find this all inclusive kit at Wal here you have it. Dad did most of the work and Q was insistant that it look exactly like the picture on the box, but we gave up on that idea half way through. He loved how it turned out and looked at it lovingly for about 5 min then said..."Ok let's eat it!"

There are days...

Ya know when there are just some days when things hit you. HARD! Today has been one of those for me. I just have had some things come back into my mind that have been hard to deal with. I just want to say I am so sorry for all the dumb things I've done in my life and yet I am so blessed to have such a great family around me. I am so blessed to have a husband who loves me and is so devoted. He's so great. I love my boys and the joy they bring to me, even when they are turkeys. I am amazed whenever I think about my Savior Jesus Christ and what he has done for me in this life and for each and every person. Even though I've had heartache, lost friends and made new ones, all in all I feel so blessed. I just want all my family to know how much I love them. And my hubby to know how amazed I am by him. I'm more in love with him every day. I am so happy that we have the chance to be together forever. I know there are many cousins, friends etc who have gone or are going through some tough times right now and I just want you to know that I pray for each of you often. I love all Bryan's cousins like my own, well I see them more actually! Thanks for letting me be me and all the love you give. BIG HUGS!
