and 9 Years Later!!!!

In the last 9 years, I can say I have been thru soo much. I got married, bought a house,became a foster parent to two great teenage girls. went thru numerous procedures to have a baby. Finally had Paityn, Lost my job, lost my house moved to Salt Lake, went back to school, helped take care of my great grandma in her last few months, tried to have another baby, had surgery, got a surprise baby Lily, moved back to St. George and am continuing school. I have done all of this with the love of my life. 9 Years ago today I started an adventure of a lifetime. I married Cody. I could not have asked for a better partner. (Although his working hours suck sometimes) I am truly happy that I have been able to have him by my side for better and for worse. (even though the worse seem to happen more often then not) I am going to enjoy this adventure as we continue with our wonderful girls. We are definitely in for a treat. I love you Cody.

WE DID IT!!!!!!

We made it. Our little angel was born on March 12 at 12:29pm. We decided on the name Lily and have loved every minute of having her in our family. Paityn is adjusting well. (on most days) and Cody and I are working on taking turns with each of the kids. I am working on posting pictures so we will have one soon. I just wanted to update briefly in case any one was wondering.

6 Weeks..........Or Less?

We have about 6 weeks left until the arrival of baby number 2. I am excited yet nervous and anxious and about ten million other feelings all rolled into one. I know Paityn is so excited, she asks if I am going to teach her how to feed change and take care of her baby. I love that she is excited. In case any one was wondering we are having a baby shower but its not a typical shower. We are going to have a celebrating baby party after the baby has arrived. We felt this was a good way travel and let the people who would like to meet our new addition all happen at the same time. I am hoping to post more soon. So just hang in there.

Exciting Exciting Exciting!!!!!!!!

I just thought I should let you all know the exciting news we have been patiently waiting to tell. We are excited to annouce we are expecting a new little baby. I have wanted to tell everyone but was hesitant because of everything we have been through. I was way excited to get this present with out the help of any doctor, so it was a total surprise for us. Paityn swears its a girl but she doesn't want a stinky boy, or so she says. I am going to try and get better about updating but we will see what happens. Our due date is March 18. So I still have a while to go. But we will get there.

October Fun with Granny Great!!!















We just wanted to take a moment and let our grandma know how much we love and appreciate her. She has been so wonderful in helping with Paityn this last month. I am going to school full time and working part time. Cody works full time and with the holidays he is working more hours. I couldn't do this with out the help I have from my grandma and grandpa. They are amazing. Paityn is learning so much from them that somedays I wonder how she got so big so fast. I wish I could take a day or two and just slow everything down and enjoy it all over again. This was the first time Paityn got to go to a pumpkin patch and pick her own pumpkin. She wanted to put them all in her wheel barrel. I had to explain a few time we don't need that many pumpkins. We let her paint one and help carve the rest. She loved playing in the pumpkin insides.

Dear Jack:







I am writing this to help me get through one of the hardest things I have ever had to do. My beloved friend and best dog ever had to be put to rest 2 days ago. I know he is in a better place but I feel like I need to express my love for him. 6 months ago we found out that Jack had a tumor growing on his nerves in his shoulder. I thought he was doing better when we got him on some medication. He was putting weight back on and eating again. I went home to visit him and thought he just didnt look fat he had something going on in his abdomen that made him gain so much weight so fast. we took him to the vet and sure enough his chest and stomach was filled with fluid. The vet said he had a heart condition and it wasnt pumping right so the fluid was just getting backed up into his chest. He could breath very good and we knew we had a tough decision to make. I am not sure if what I thought was for the best actually is but I felt at the moment that I didn't have any other choice. I have never lost a pet I was so close to and never thought it would happen so soon. I am so sorry I wan't there for him as much as I should have been. I was working to get him back home to us and thought I had a little more time. Jack was very much loved and missed for the last year. I will never forget him and all the joy he brought to our family.



I love you Jack and will never forget you. You are the best.
