SO happy!!!!

I couldn't be more excited for the month of July to come. It's your baby girl's birthday month and a pretty important one at that- she is turning 8 and getting baptized. It is now time to pull out these special items and wrap the MOST important gifts your baby girl is going to get :)
How grateful I am that you took the time to make the kids these videos for their major milestones/Birthdays.
I cannot wait to hear the words of love and advice you will give Hallie. What a special gift!
Since Hallie will be receiving a set of scriptures as part of her birthday/baptismal gift, you wrote her a special letter
I still am in AWE of everything you did for the kids and I before you passed.
Thank you for helping to make this day so special

Loves you MUCHO


I'm BACK...

Wow, almost a 2 month hiatus from blogging- BUSY, fun, much needed Summer break and LOVING it!

Let's go back a little bit to May... it was ROUGH. Like I've said in the past, I have had moments that were hard, but nothing beyond that. However, May's "moments" seemed to last just a TAD bit longer, like ALL month long- YUK! I was missing you like crazy, had some decisions to make, had a heavy heart and was feeling a little lost. Thank goodness for answered prayers- I have WONDERFUL friends here who were my pick-me-up when I needed it most. They let me cry, vent (basically ramble), all while talking me through things and making me laugh. I needed them more than ever during that time and I am so grateful they were there for me.

Although my friends helped me get through many rough patches, I still had a lot going through my mind. I have never really loved how early the kids start school here, but I do LOVE how early they get out. So, the day after Hallie finished school, we left on a 6 week vacay. Boy was it NEEDED... it saved my sanity and left me feeling VERY rejuvenated.

So what were we up to?
We went to one of your FAVORITE places... Wyoming
SO beautiful!

While there, we went to Utah and Idaho to visit family and friends. Then we flew back home to AZ and quickly packed up to head out to California for more family time.
The beach is SO relaxing and peaceful...LOVE IT!

We had a BLAST during all our travels visiting family and friends

So what are we up to now?
Busy, Busy, Busy
Enjoying the rest of summer and preparing for lots of company. There are some special things going on at the end of this month- a little someones 8th birthday and Baptism

BUT, busy is always good!
It feels good to be back home...
