A Sweet Surprize!

Tonight I was up at the church preparing for mutual. With the help of my sister I was teaching the girls how to cook a easy healthy meal! When I got there I realized I was missing some of the ingredients I needed! So, I asked my wonderful husband if He'd run to the store for me! This is what he brought back, along with what I needed!! He is just too good to me and I am amazed how lucky I am! have someone who can always put a smile on my face is truly a blessing!

Couples Night!

Josh and I invited a few of our friends over to play cards! It was tons of fun they were here all night!! Cassie and Paul brought over their pup Abby and Gail and Derrick Brought over Addy! It was like a doggie party! Chueca didn't know what to think! These puppies are much smaller and younger than her plus she doesn't think she is a dog so it was interesting to see how she interacted with them!!

Ryann's Birthday Baptism

What a Beautifully lucky girl! I don't know many people who get baptized on their actual birthday! But Ryann is a lucky girl and has been since day one!! She brought this family together years ago and continues to every step through out her life!! It was great having Ashley, Emie, Corrine, and Kristofer here! The Spirit is always strong when the family gathers but it was so powerful Today!! Uncle Lee, and Uncle Josh couldn't hold the tears back as they each gave talks on baptism and the Holy Ghost! You could feel the love and power of such a specail day all around! Ryann looked like an Angel all in white, and a smile that just didn't quit! Ashley, Brittany, Corrine, and I all sang the song "Baptism." I love singing with my sisters! Brittany out did herself like she always does! There was more food than this church has ever seen at a baptism! And it was all healthy!!! :)

Orphan Annie

Annie came to Springfield! Mom, Josh , Ryann and I all went to see the musical Annie! It was Awesome! The voices on those kids are totally star quality! I was a little disappointed because there was a lot of bad language, Why would you do that in a kid show?? It's beyond me! Other than that it was a wonderful performance! Annie stole the show!! And the other orphan girls were so cute and talented as well! Ryann loved the show! As we were walking back to the car I asked her "Ryann, do you want sing like that?" she replied "Oh I can, I just don't know the words!" LOL, Wish I had that confidence!

Valentine's Day

Josh and I had a wonderful Valentines day! He spoiled me like usual!! First things first, While I was in the shower getting ready for work, I thought Josh was sleeping... I came back in my room to sit down by my mirror where I usually do my makeup and hair, and it was attacked with hearts, all over the mirror and floor!! Great suprise! I keep telling Josh that in our new house I want a big fat jacuzzi tube in the master bath because I miss taking bubble baths! So for Valentines he rented us a room with just that!! Plus he got me not only one piece of jewelry, not even two.... But 5! A necklace, ring and an earring set, and a necklace and bracelet set! All my birthstone Blue Topaz! They are beautiful!!! I was so happy with just spending a romantic night away, but I was blown away again!!! I love Him!! It's amazing how one man can be so Amazing!!

Ice Storm Again??

We heard crashes all night long and woke up to this!! We are living in a glass city, so it seems! It is so beautiful but scary at the same time!It is raining yet it is so cold that it freezes as quickly as it falls encasing our world in ice! The weight of the ice is too unbearable for the trees! Especially because two days ago we had tornadoes which weakened them! What we didn't lose in the tornadoes seems to have been lost in this ice storm! It kind of reminds me of the movie Narnia! Everything is white and crystallized! Brittany lost all her trees, her whole street had
trees down everywhere you couldn't even drive down to the houses! Dad and Josh went over to help Brandon and Ryann finish off the trees and get them out of the driveway! One of Brittany's neighbors had both of their cars covered by trees!
