Happy Birthday to Me!

My birthday is two days after Valentines Day. So almost every year they are celebrated together, or at least I usually get one big gift for both days. This year Matt pulled out a box on Valentine's Morning .........

I was surprised, wow what could be inside?.....So here is what I found when I opened the box...


I was so EXCITED, I couldn't believe it. Matt picked it out all by himself with no help.. I LOVE IT BABE...

On my Birthday a group of friends (Jen, Amy,Katie,Tara,Kirsty,Clarissa aka my sister) took me to get my toes done and we did a little shopping.. It was a great afternoon without my kids. Thank you Ladies for a fun afternoon.
My pretty toes!!
It was a Wonderful Birthday, I am so grateful for my friends and family.

Happy Birthday Kamber!

Today, we remember our little angel Kamber. She would have been three today, but she has returned to live with our Father in Heaven. Family and Friends gathered together and went to the cementry to decorate her grave. We also released ballons with messages to her. It was such a great day, we know that she was looking down at us. I remember going to the hosptial on the day that she passed away. I arrived at the hosptial to find Ethan and his Dad there with Kamber in their arms. Ethan asked me if I would like to hold her. I said, "Yes" I ran my fingers through her hair and touched her face. I cherish the chance that I had to hold her one last time. Earlier this week, when we blessed Brody in our home, I felt her presence there. During the blessing I felt this strong burning in my heart, right at that moment I said Kamber's name to my self. I started to cry because I knew she was there to share this special day with us. I know now that she is with us always. We miss her and wish that we could hold her one last time. I know that we will be able to see her again thanks to gospel.

We Love You Kamber!!

Brody's Special Day!

Today Brody was given his name and a blessing. We were so excited that both of our families were able to make it. It took place at our home due to family circumstance. I am blessed to have the priesthood in our home. I am so proud to say that my husband honors his priesthood. He did a wonderful job on the blessing. I felt the spirit so strong today in our home. We are grateful that the Lord has blessed us with Brody's sweet spirit. We hope that we can do our best as parents, to raise him in the gospel. Thank You to the Larsen Family that allowed us have a luncheon at there beautiful home after the blessing.

A Special Thank You to Grandparents, Aunts and Uncles that traveled to share this special day with us!! WE LOVE YOU!!

Super Bowl Sunday!

Brayden was so excited that the Cardinal were playing in the Super Bowl.. Brayden wanted a Cardinal shirt so bad, so Daddy and Brayden got a shirt to wish them Good Luck. Sorry to say but it didn't help much.
Maybe Next Year Cards!
(Matt's Favorite Team is really the Chargers since we are from San Diego)
