Renaissance Festival!


Each year we go out to the Renaissance Festival to watch my sister "Fire Dance" show. She is getting really good at it. This year we have decided that it would be the "boy's" last show. Kodi is getting too old to see people playing with Fire. But we did have a good time even with the rain, the kid got to ride a pony and eat some food! Enjoy the pictures!

School for everyone!


Kingston is a very busy will guy, he can roll very fast and loves to be on the move! He is almost to the point of crawling you can see his little brain thinking about how the heck does he get his arms and his legs to move at the same time, he will get it soon enough.

Dakota is doing GREAT with his speech. He is talking so much more and you understand him. He starts conversations out with you and wants to share his thoughts and feelings. His "fits" have been cut in half and he is becoming happier and happier. This week he started to ride the school bus to school, I wasn't so sure about it since my little guy is only 3 but Tuesday he got right on the bus with no problem, when he was getting off the bus he jumped right into Aaron's arms and yelled "Daddy"(which he calls aaron now) it made Aaron's heart melt! Thursday was another story of getting on the bus he did not want to at all. So we did not make him get on the bus, we took him and Aaron went in and dropped him off and he rode the school bus home.

Haleigh has started Preschool 3 times a week and is very good at it. Her teacher told me how "ready" she was for school and how she just fit in with everyone on the first day! It was a sad day in our house on the first day of preschool, Kodi did not understand that it was not his turn for school and that he would be going on tueday. Haleigh tried her best to explain that it was just for her and that he would be going to school "tomorrow" we watched Haleigh go into her classroom and find a spot of the carpet and we left, with Dakota crying, I was sad to see how grown up she is getting and KK who was very tired. Overall it was a good day for us!

I want to say thank you to my family

This past Sunday a friend of mine who has been battleing limbic ensephalitis in his brain lost the fight and passed away. It really makes you take a step back and look at your life. I am so very thankful for the gospel and the knowledge of knowing that I will be able to once again see Jeb.
There was such a peace around his family today at the funeral and it's because of the gospel and their faith in the Lord that he will take care of them.
I am so very thankful to my family. I have such a wonderful husband who wants to make sure his family is taken care of. How loves his boys so much. It bring such joy to my heart to hear Dakota call out "Daddy, Daddy" when he needs help. How Kingston is a Daddy's boy already. He loves his daddy, you can tell at the end of the day when Kingston has had enough of me and wants his Daddy, he puts on a great big smile when Aaron comes in.
It's been a great 8 years that I have been married to a wonderful loving man. I cannot image what I would do if he was taken away from me. How would I go on, without him. We have been blessed to have 8 years together and I can't wait for 8 more years!
So thank you to my wonderful family.
