Memorial Day

Since the weather is freezing cold, we were able to go on a few drives and make it to a couple of our grandma/grandpa's graves. Great Grandpa Don in Bountiful
Gib and Shirley in Goshen
and D Ross & DeEsta Young in Brigham City.

We miss you all and it was nice to pay our respects and have Austin visit them. Also a shout out to all those who serve our country. Especially my tres bro's Jaren, Tyson, and Sean.
Happy Memorial Day!

NICU Kits Delivered!

I want to thank everyone who helped donate or put together the Parent Survival kits. We were able to help over 60 families. It was a great night and I was so excited to deliver them. Going back to the NICU brought so many emotions back. Some good, and some not so good. But when all is said and done, if thats what it takes to get your baby here it's worth it.

One of my neighbor/friends son is in the NICU now and my prayers go out to them. Come home soon Tayton, we can't wait to meet you. His mom was one of the recipients of our NICU kits.
Just to know that you have support and help meant a lot and it was good to be able to help others. I have great friends and family, especially all of my fellow NICU/RSV moms, I love you!
Packages include: "Give yourself a "kiss" now and then
Find "joy" in the little things!
Try to "roll"with the ups and downs of nicu
Try not to go "nuts" while in the nicu
Time away from the NICU can be a "lifesaver"
Take "extra" time for yourself
Take a "break"from the stress of the NICU it will do wonders for you
"TWIX" you and me, your baby is adorable
"Take 5" minutes each day to glory in the beauty of your baby
Hand sanitizer, baby hats, and washcloth with a neat NICU poem.

March for Babies

Today we marched for healthy babies. I marched for Austin, Tayton, Bailey, and Gracie.
When you walk in March for Babies, you give hope to the more than half a million babies born too soon each year. The money you raise supports programs in your community that help moms have healthy, full-term pregnancies. And it funds research to find answers to the problems that threaten our babies and NICU programs.

Happy Anniversary! It's been 4 great years since I married the love of my life. It brings back some great memories. I loved my wedding. I remember most celebrating with all of our family and friends, the start of a great relationship.
We spent a night at the Alaskan Inn. We had our own little cabin complete with sparkling cider, surround sound music, 2 person jacuzzi, and NO KIDS ARE ALLOWED!!!! Thanks Kali, I Love U
We ate a great dinner at Timbermine, and took a pretty drive up Ogden canyon.

Cheers, and cant wait for many anniversaries to come!

One Royal Wedding


Azzie wanted to dress up for the occasion!
I love my DVR. I recorded the event but still got up at 5AM to watch the biggest wedding EVER! My favorite parts were watching Prince William arrive with his brother,
the hats, (some good and some not so good)
of course the dress
two kisses,
being one of the 3 billion people to watch the 34 million dollar wedding,
the royal family,
how happy they looked,
the car ride,
And having two princesses of my own. I loved watching every moment!

Easter

We had a great Easter. Easter egg hunts, coloring easter eggs, eating lots of chocolate, and enjoyed a great day at church. Just wish the weather was warmer!
