I am working on an etsy site and hope to have my stuff up I am making. Liz sent me some really great stuff. Just look at the picture. Her site is to the left Elizabeth Gwen, go check her out. I sent a package to Jennie at a welcoming heart. She is also to the left. Both very talented ladies. I am so glad I got to meet them.

Are you out there?

Yesterday marks a big event in my life. My oldest boy turned 26. My baby boy who I missed out on so much. I was so young when I had him. I had alot of growing up to do and he suffered the hard knock with it. I am sad to say my relationship with him is not right now. I do however have hope that it will be again one day. I let him down in some ways and I think he is trying to work through that. I know that I am proud of him and the man he has become. He is currently serving our country and has been for the last eight years. He has a wonderful wife and he continues to make smart decisions in his life. I love him so much and pray each day that he will soften his heart and allow me to be in his life. I so regret all I missed with him. My heart aches to see and be just a small part of his life. I love you my son and will never give up on us. Happy Birthday and I hope it was a really great one! Love Always MOM

Multiple posts

We went to Lagoon again this summer got to see Adam and Rachel go to the temple and then we did the county fair. Emily was in the parade. Check out all my posts. I had to catch up.

Family Camping Trip

Our first annual family camping trip. We had a great time and really enjoyed spending time out in a tent. I didn't think I would be too thrilled about sleeping out in a tent. (Especially when my mattress went flat.)But we all had a good time roasting marshmellows, riding the jet skis (thanks Nalders) and just visiting. We are planning on doing it again next year.


So August was a busy month for me. Logan turned 4 and we had a nice birthday for him at Chuck E Cheese. He was so happy and I made him some gf cupcakes. We also
celebrated Taylor's birthday, since she was in california for hers. The rest of the month was getting ready for school. Emily is a senior this year and it requires much work!

She's growing up...

It's hard to believe that my little girl is not a little girl anymore. Today marks a step forward into womanhood for her. I am sad, she just had her eleventh birthday a few days ago. She is growing too fast. I look at the little redhead with piggy tales (what little I could get in) and see a grown girl who is no longer a girl. I was hopeing for alittle more time as a little girl. :( I love you T.

We made it!!

It took us six years but we got there! So happy we made it to the temple, what a great day it was. We saw the rainbows on the way home, it was a perfect day!

Pile UP!!!!

So we went to visit the kids we haven't seen in awhile. We also got to see the babies! Zach is such a good father. I also got a wonderful present from my great daughter-in-law Rachel...The jar made especially for me :) I had to make some goodies to put in it! Thanks Rachel I love it so much!

Ok so I haven't been really loyal to my blog here, so I am playing catch up....

Here is the one mile that my family ended up doing with me. It was cold that day, but we finished and it was fun! I plan on doing more in the future.

Outside my box...

Remember when I said that my new years resolution was to step outside my box? I have been so far. I was called to young womens as a beehive advisor. That is so outside my box! Anyway I signed up myself and my family for a 1 mile walk run to help support our local park to build a walking path. We will be participating in this on May 16. So look for an up date on this.... Just another outside the box comment on Saturday the 2nd my husband and I along with the kids will be sealed in the Temple. A six year accomplishment! :)

I just wanted to share with everyone that April is Autism Awareness Month. Many of you know that Logan is Autistic. We have been proactive in his treatment. We found a biomedical doctor in Provo who has been helping us and we have also been learning. Logan takes 15 supplements a day and a b-12 shot every three days. ( I have had to learn to inject my little baby boy) But I see some results, so I push along. Easter was tough. He is on a yeast program right now. This means no sugar, no yeast, no gluten of any kind only two fruits a day no processed meats, and the list goes on....I should just write what he can have. So for his Easter egg hunt ( which by the way no eggs are allowed) he got his grapes, his favorite crackers, a bunny toy, and best of all a bubble machine. Thanks to grandma and grandpa for making it nice for Logan. He loves mashed potatoes and I made some for our dinner as well as Logans special ones! I am still learning and trying to find good things for him with all these limits. My motivation for all this hard work? My boy off the Autism spectrum. I KNOW this will happen....

She is driving now

Yep my little girl is not so little anymore. She really worked hard to get that piece of paper. So now she can drive herself. I am excited and sad at the same time. She is getting her independence little by little. She is a senior next year. Then she plans to move to sunny California and start her life out there. I am sad. I already miss her and shed tears over this. I am making sure to make the most of the next year.
