I know the word is out about my dad and the tumor in his eye. On Thursday he will be going to Tucson for more tests and procedures and even though I am not sure what Thursday will bring.....
I am glad for many things, many things, many things. I am glad for many things THAT ARE MINE TODAY!!
Thank you, thank you, my heart sings, my heart sings, my heart sings. Thank you for the many things THAT ARE MINE TODAY!!
Even though we have entered the unknown and are feeling a little uneasy, uncertain, worried and afraid, I still feel so BLESSED!!! Blessed to have these two amazing people as my parents. Blessed to have such an amazing family. Blessed to KNOW that Heavenly Father hears and answers prayers and blessed to feel the love of our Savior!!
So, our sweet little Mary had a birthday. I LOVE these pictures of her!!! They were taken outside the Snowflake Temple when Carly was married. Tiff has had them on her computer and I was able (with tiff's help) to get them on mine. These pictures melt my heart, I am so grateful to have this beautiful girl in my life and in our family. She has brought us alot of SUNSHINE!! I hope she knows on how much we LOVE her. HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!
For Homecoming this year Macky was voted Duke by his peers for his Sophmore Class. The really cool thing about it was his actual Homecoming date (Lindsey Crandell) won Duchess. She is a awesome young lady!!! Congrats you two:) Macky actually broke the "homecoming curse", for 4 years straight JT was nominated for royalty and lost every time. It became a huge joke around here (I GROW-UP TO BE A LOSER) and what do you know, the little bro WINS!! Way to go Macky!!!
We have alot of birthdays this month in our family but this birthday is a special one for Nate. He turned EIGHT!!! We are looking forward to his baptism. There are 4 cousins (Amelia, Nate, Tessa and Kimball) that all turn eight this month, so we have decided to have a "cousins baptism day". Amelia and Nate have to wait the longest to bet baptized, their b-days were on the 5th and 6th, so I just wanted to wish my boy a Happy Birthday!! It has been a treat to watch him learn and grow. He has overcome so many things, he has moved mountains!! I really have enjoyed watching him grow spiritually, we have been talking to him alot about baptism trying to get him ready and it has been very entertaining:) I asked him the other night why we get baptized and here are a few of his answers....
It's a commandment. (We have worked on this answer for weeks) So the Holy Ghost can walk by me. So Satan can see me get baptized :) So my sins won't stay on me.
I could see the wheels a turning as we talked, it takes him a while to process things but I finally think he's getting it and that makes me happy. He makes me HAPPY and I am so grateful that I have the privilege of being his mom. My heart is bursting with thankfulness for the opportunity to make a difference in his life. Actually he's making a difference in mine!!!
I just would feel ungrateful if I didn't post something about my amazing daugther who had a BIRTHDAY on Monday. She has brought so much fun and joy into my life and I can hardly wait for her to experience motherhood. I am so grateful that Heavenly Father sent her to our family first. He knew exactly what I needed (a helper)!! I am blessed to call her daughter and friend!!!
