Our Families Favorite Quote

As a being of power, intelligence, and the master of his own thoughts, a man holds the key to every situation, to make his life what he chooses it to be. When he discovers the divine power within his soul, he can lead his life to a God-like nature. If one dreams lofly dreams, so shall he become. There is magic in the way one thinks. If we expect the worst, we will get the worst. If we expect the best, we will recieve the best. If we train our minds to have faith in God and ourselves, we are using one of the great laws of life. If we think and live righteously, happiness will find its place in our lives. It is amazing when we expect the best how forces are set in motion which cause the best to materialize. Our thoughts, more than circumstances determine the coarse of our lives. Outward circumstances do not determine the coarse of our lives as much as the thoughts that habitually occupy our minds. These thoughts carve their impression on our faces, in our hearts, and on the tablet of our eternal souls.

Jade turned 7!!!!

I can hardly believe that my oldest is 7! I am sure I have not had a child for 7 years, really!!! Jade is my Sunshine, almost every night I sing to her "you are my sunshine...." she brightens my day everyday. She is such a good helper and friend to me. She is always making sure that I am ok. I am so grateful to have her. She just finished 1st grade and has loved every minute of it. She loves school. She is such a good friend to so many kids, I can't believe how many friends she has!!!! She is growing up so much. She has lost 5 teeth including her 2 front teeth. She loves to read and is into reading Judy B. books. She likes to read to Jordyn at night as well, I tend to get pushed out of the way so she can read to her brother or sister! She loves to swim and is taking private swim lessons this summer. Jade loves to fix hair and usually does her own (by her choice) each day. Each year for her birthday her grandma Colette and her go have a special day together, shopping usually is what they both LOVE to do together. So she spent time with her and I think that they were gone for 4 hours!!!! Fun. She had a family birthday party this year and a friend party at the sports academy where they swam, had a treasure hunt and had cake and Ice cream. For the family party we had a cinco de mayo dinner party since her bday lands on May 5th. I made a tres leche cake for my first time and we loved it we will have to make it a tradition. For her friend party we did a butterfly cupcake cake. Jade's favorite color is blue and she loves to sing to music while driving places in the car. She loves music from Paul Cardall and then of few songs off the radio. Happy Birthday Jade!!!

For My moms mother's day and birthday Brad and Holly and us went and stayed at mom and dad's for the weekend. It was so nice. We went to Famous Daves for dinner and went garage saleing, played at many parks around day break, we played at the lake and ate good food and watched movies, it was good times. Justin took my mom for a motorcyle ride, she loved it! The girls had fun with grandma and grandpa and they also played hard with their friends that live next door to them. Thanks for the fun weekend mom and dad!! Happy Birthday Mom!

Mother's Day 2009

I had a beautiful mother's day. I enjoyed every minute of it. I am so lucky to have my husband and children. They made my meals and treated me so kindly! The girls picked out a cute musical card for me beacause they know me sooo well! The weather was beautiful we spent most of the day relaxing outside. I got to see my mom wich was a surprise because we were planning on going and seeing her for her birthday and mother's day the coming up weekend but she ended up coming to cache valley to see her mother and mother in law. So Justin took me for a motorcyle ride into Logan to visit with her and my grandma Yates for awhile. I love my mom and the older I get the more I appreciate her. She is such a good grandma to my kids, they love her so so much and always want to go see Grandma Colette. Mom you are such a beautiful example of how to be a mother and grandmother I am grateful to have such a good example of a mother to follow. I am proud to be your daughter! Thanks for all you have done for me my whole life and now my children's lives we love you!!!!

Tyler learned to walk when he turned 11 months old back in Feb. it is now June and he has been running all over the place and climbing on anything and everything he can get his little body up on. I have loved having a boy but man I can't believe how active a little boy can be, he keeps me on my toes that is for sure. Hey I look at it as a workout, I don't need to go to the gym I have Tyler to keep up with haha! I need to get a video of him climbing up on any table, it is funny because he hurries and climbs and then once he is up there he does a little victory dance!!! He loves to dance whenever he heres music he starts to dance it is very cute and funny! Another thing about Ty is he has never been into baby food very much. He always wants to feed himself and so I try to let him and here is some pics of him trying to feed or in other words make a huge mess for me!!!!

So this is how some of our days are..... I walk into the girls room and well ya they are playing dress up with their brother!!!! Tyler you are soooo cute!!!! I love my kids so much! They are such a joy to me.
