The BIG 3-0

I have to say THANK YOU to all of my FANTASTIC friends who were able to celebrate my birthday. I was so touched to see them there and the effort they took to make this day so much fun! I am so grateful for all of you and want you to know that you are the most incredible women I have ever met! This defiantly made turning 30 one of the best days ever! A special thank you to Tiffany, Stacy, and Rebecca for all of your efforts and to everyone else...Your the BEST!!!

I was told to dress up formal and get a sitter and Rebecca would arrive to pic me up...
We met at Edwards and blind folded we arrived at Lake Lowell in our dresses and all, a couple of guys asked what was going on and who's birthday it was. I replied that it was my birthday and he asked how old I was...Of coarse this is a loaded question...I asked how old he thought I was...This guy was smarter than he looked his reply...22 ...(YES!)Well I had to tell him I was 30 and to that he said welcome to the club... (UGGG!)
We boarded the boat to find out that it should have been a cruise considering all the amazing food aboard! We played a game of "Truth or Dare" we had to tell the truth and dive into the water (in our dress or not) or accept a dare which would be far worse. We probably learned too much about each other! Then the "Paparazzi" gave us a few good screams! We had so much fun and so much food!!!

kyi's first day of 1st grade!

Ahhh! I can't believe how time goes by... I remember when Kyi was just a little round bald chub. My dad said he looked just like "Uncle Fester" I hate to admit it but he did! He was dang cute though! Kyi tried not to act scared but it was written all over his face! He survived his 1st day now on to the rest of the year! WE LOVE YOU KYI!!!

Happy "late" Birthday Maycee!

Happy Birthday Mace!
3 years old
So I am about a month and a day late posting Maycee's birthday...The good news...I found the battery charger for the camera! It has been put in a "safe" place for most of the summer. Now I can try to stay on top of our blog!
I can't believe we have had Miss Maycee for three years, still when I look back at her baby picture it seems like forever ago! She has gotten so big and silly!
who knew that sweet little baby would turn into a wild three year old -streaking down -the- sidewalk little "princess" (her word, not mine)!
She has been so much fun, I Remember crying in my ultrasound when we found out she was a girl. We had some trials previously, so we decided to wait to get pregnant and really plan our next pregnancy out and be prepared for anything. After about 5 months and a dog later ( dogs don't fill the void of a baby, they just pee on your carpet) I decided I couldn't wait anymore and told Eric we were going to get pregnant...With a girl this time! Umm...Honestly I'm not sure how excited he was at the time, but I knew it was right. 5 weeks later we found out that I was pregnant. At that moment I thought,"what the crap have I done I hate being pregnant!" too late! We had to wait 'til the end of my second trimester for that ultrasound, and I was for sure it was a boy...Eric was willing to place bets for a girl. He won! Maycee was due the end of August but chose to arrive a month early, I guess she knew we were excited to meet her!
she came via an emergency Cesarean, at the last minute before they were to break my water. The nurse asked if she could do an ultrasound she said she felt like she needed to, something seemed off. Sure enough Maycee was breach
(this is the short version of that story!)
We are so grateful for Maycee and the sweet spirit she has brought into our home. I am grateful for the comfort we had been blessed, not to worry about the pregnancy any birth of this little spirit who had a special place in our family. We can't wait to watch her grow into a young woman and venture off onto her own path in this big world, I pray that we will have taught both our children the principles of the gospel and they might feel their Savior's Love for them.
Raising children isn't easy and I will willingly except that I am a huge whiner about this experience, although I complain I wouldn't change a thing not even the trials that have been placed before us. I'm humbled that I have an opportunity to raise children at this time, even though I wonder if they might be schooling me more often than not!
