I love this time of year. The Holidays...Spending time together as a family...Family Parties, And with Thanksgiving in a couple of days I wouldn't feel right if I didn't jot down the things that I am thankful for....

***Most Importantly I am thankful for my Savior Jesus Christ. I am so grateful to be a member of His Church. I am so GRATEFUL for His atoning Sacrifice for me.
***I am thankful for my husband Zach. He is the best thing that has happened to me. I would be lost without him. He truly is my best friend!! I am thankful that I can laugh and cry..just be me, and he still loves me.
***I am thankful for Kohen and Addison. They are my favorite 2 little people in this world. I love that I am their mom. They make me laugh daily. They are soooo cute...I am thankful that they are starting to be "friends" and play together.
***I am thankful for my family and Zach's family..we are so lucky to have both of our families close to us. They are all so fun to be around, and a great support to me.
***I am thankful for a warm house to have..I am thankful for Zach's job and mine to provide for us and our kids.
***I am thankful that Zach can go to school to give us more opportunities in the future.
***I am thankful for good neighbors. We love Kris and Sandy...and so do my kids.
***I am thankful to live in the USA...we are SO blessed to be free and to live in this country!!

I am SO thankful for all that I have. Happy Thanksgiving!!

PlaYiNg CaTcH uP & RaNdOm PiCs

This has been a fun and interesting week. It all started with me getting strep, a kidney infection and a LOVELY infection in my mouth behind my mucus membranes..due to strep!!!

It was a FUN birthday week for me. WE got tickets to Disney on Ice to take Kohen and He LOVED every minute of it. IT was the best birthday present to see him have such a good time. WE can't wait until Addi is old enough to enjoy it too. Friday morning I woke up to my kids and Zach singing HaPpY BiRtHdAy!! IT was SOOO cute. Zach made me Eggs Benedict..HOMEMEADE!! WHat a GREAT Husband...We love to go to Ruth's Diner for my Birthday for BReakfast, but this year he made it for me...I think that is better than RUth'S...Thanks Zach you are the BEST.

Zach and I had a night out with out the kiddies it was soooooo NICE. I don't remember the last time it was just the 2 of us. We enjoyed a movie and dinner...thanks Mom...I really enjoyed it and had a GREAT Day!! Saturday was back to work and the daily grind. When I came home from work Zach and the kids made me a BIRTHDAY cake. IT was so cute and really fun to let them just dig in..especially my Addi...she LOVES to get her hands dirty. All in all with me feeling like crap and still working it turned out to be a GREAT week and Such a FUN BIrthday!!! Thanks Zach, Kohen and Addison.....I LOVE YOU!!!

I have decided that it is a GOOD DECISION to take my blog down the private road. To many crazy people out there! If you would like to be invited to read my blog please post a comment so that I can invite you!! I will go Private a week from today!!!



CuTe LiTtLe StInKeRs

I just thought my kids looked so cute dressed up and ready for church. Zach got them ready for church, and Kohen kept telling him that he was really tired and he wanted to go to bed. (Obviously trying to get out of church) Zach put him in his bed, he stayed and ended up falling to sleep all ready for church. Needless to say this kid is way to smart and knew exactly how to get out of church...They did look SO CUTE!

I am just a little behind on this post. Last Saturday all of Zach's family ran a 5K to support a fund raiser for kids with cancer in honor for our niece Kendra. I was really bummed that I missed out on this because of work. Zach took the kids and headed to Layton Park to start the race. I think it is safe to say that everyone had a GREAT experience. It is amazing to me how the people of this city have really stepped up to help out Kendra and her family. Kendra's school had a bake sale that was 3 days. They raised over $1200. It was such an incredible experience to be there when they presented the money to Zane. All of the 6th grade kids made a blanket for Kendra, so that when she goes to the hospital she will keep warm and feel her friends all around her.

As far as Kendra goes, I think that this radiation is starting to take its toll on her. She is SUCH a trooper. Her little face is so swollen and red, but yet underneath it all she has such a beautiful smile. Kendra is an example to all of us..she has and is enduring so much. Keep it up Kendra...You are an amazing little girl, and you are always in our thoughts and prayers!!!

When my kids got home from the race Kohen was so excited to show me his T-shirt and tell me all about the race. Him and Addison looked so cute in their SUPER HERO t-shirts.
