Where to Start!!!!!

Soooo I am still alive! I can't believe it's been over 3 months since I updated my blog! I honestly don't know where the summer went and how school has already been going for two months. This post is going to be a long one since I'll try to go back and re-cap my summer and what has been happening up until now. These last couple of months have been some of the hardest ones I've had in awhile. I've had things and relationships with people I never thought would be tested be just that. It's been hard for me to continue through and have faith that if I hold true to the things I know I'm supposed to be doing that things will work out. I know that the Lord loves me and that he sends people to me everyday that show me just that. It never ceases to amaze me just how well He does know me and exactly what I need to be able to learn from my trials. I have also come to realize how well Satan also knows me and is able to hit me right when he knows I'm weak. I also know that what I am going through is so small compared to what so many other people are going through. I have wonderful family and friends and I have a job that I absolutely love, two things that a lot of people don't have. I am so thankful for so many things but first and foremost for those two things :) I know that if I'm strong enough to be faithful through my trials that the Lord will bless me and has a plan for me. I'm so grateful for the Gospel and for the hope it brings to my life.

I got the new iphone and I am a little addicted to my photo editing program! Chase came home from his mission and this was at his homecoming. He gave one of the best talks I've ever heard. He has such a strong testimony and I'm so proud of him!
Another photo editing job
Almost all the cousins! Missing Kacies, Seth, Christan and Randy
Jen is having a baby! YEAH! I'm so happy for her and Jimmy! I hauled her around shopping with me all day. She was such a trooper being pregnant and all. I love Jen so much and am so thankful for her in my life. She is always there to give me advice about anything I ask. One of my favoritne things about Jen is she is always honest! No matter what! She doesn't do the little white lie thing to save feelings. She always tells the truth no matter what.
I love this pictures! Notice Payton in the backseat.

I just like this picture :)

I can hardly believe Jessica is getting married! Seriously! Erick is the perfect fit for her and for our family. The guy is great! I'm so happy for her. She's getting married October 29th in the St. George Temple. I am so excited to be able to be there! This is her bridal shower. My mom, Becca and I got her that little number!

So a quick recap of the summer..We had fun swimming at Grandma's of course!

So Behind!!

I can't believe I have gone this long without blogging! I really do want to keep this thing up. My sister printed it out for me last Christmas and it is the best journal, but this year so far I have not done good! So much has happened and all my pictures are out of order. I am officially half done with my Masters. Still taking classes this summer which I don't love, doing homework in the summer stinks! The most exicitng thing that has happened is I have a new nephew! Jaxon was born on April 2nd and is the cutest little guy ever :)

Kacie and the kids came to visit last week it was so good to see them. I just can't get enough of this shirt and this little girl. I love her so much!

Me and my little love :)

four of the five cutest boys in the whole world!

While Kacie was here we were able to get together with Becca and the boys, it was so fun to have my niece and nephews all together. I love this picture of Treyson kissing Jax.

My newest nephew :)

Jaxon still in the hospital on the day he was born. I love his hair!

Jessica graduated from high school! Seriously! Where does time go? I am so proud of her and everything she has become. She is amazing and I love her so much!

She didn't love the cap and gown. It took a lot to get her to put it on for pictures!

Daniel and Seth came for the graduation and they loved hanging out with Trey!

The girls :)

Where's Kacie???

Cooper and Trey at the splash pad

All of my nephews and niece in one picture. You can't see Jax because he's in the stroller, but he's there. My two sisters too:) What a great picture!

Payt had fun swinging with the boys

Jess going to Senior Ball

Jess, Tori and I went to Vegas, went to the Temple and did some shopping.

Tori and I by the fish tank

Becca tried to put purple in my hair a couple of weeks ago, so we made a night of it. Her and Jax came and had a slumber party with me. It was so much fun. Jax mostly slept through the hair dying.

Putting the purple in :)

That was a really bad catch up with a ton of grammar mistakes I'm sure. but at this point I'm just glad to be sort of caught up. Hopefully I can be better!

Dear Blog...School Has Taken Over My Life!!!!

So it's been almost two months and once again updating my blog has gotten away from me, mostly because of school! BOO! Doing homework again and sitting in class really bites! I have discovered that I defintely do have a case of ADD! Luckily I have Chelsie to share in the pain with me otherwise I don't know what I would do. Anyway, Here is what has been going on the last couple of months.

I went to Oregon for Spring Break to visit my sister and of course my adorable niece and nephew! I had so much fun with them. It's crazy how big they are both getting especially Payton! I had her promise me she was going to stop growing up :)

We went to this place with some really cool waterfalls, I forgot the name! The day I got to Oregon I had to go to Instacare where after sitting for a couple of hours they told me I had an ear infection. Just my luck! It felt like my right ear was going to explode!

So Pretty!

Me with the kids, and they are both smiling :)

Payton loves me to take pictures so she can pull "funny faces" and then look at the pictures.

Oh and P.S. I lost one of my contacts while I was there too so I wore my glasses for three days.. I look awesome I know!

Cute little Treyson

Um..when did she get so big! Seriously! Wasn't it just yesterday she was a baby?

I love this shirt! She know what it says too and she'll tell you "My aunt is my BFF!"

Now we move to my birthday! I turned 32 on the 13th BOO! That sounds so freakin old! My birthday was great. I am so grateful for awesome friends and family. My day started with breakfast with Becca at 6:15 (she says it was 7:15) but it was still 6:15 to me.:) She had been freaking me out all week about what she might do sending me texts the night before that said "Are you getting nervous yet?" I have to admit after my 30th birthday I was. I was also a bit scared since she's the only person who has a key to my house, luckily she just showed up really early and took me to breakfast and gave me an awesome purple watch! I love it! Later that night I went down to Mesquite and had dinner with my family my mom made a great cake for me and it was nice to just be able to spend time with everyone. I got lots of great stuff from my family. I also got some really cute things from all of my friends. I'm so lucky to have all of them :) Jen took me to dinner the day after my birthday and even let me choose Chuckarama and then we watched the finale of The Bachelor. She got me a cute present and the best card ever, it was so thoughtful and sweet . I love that she takes the time to write such nice stuff to me even though I know sometimes I don't deserve it.

Me and the girls! I love them so much.

My class did a birthday party for me that day before Spring Break. Usually I am able to avoid my birthday because it's almost always over Spring Break and the kids don't remember, which is fine by me..This year Becca made sure they knew and that they gave me the proper celebration since she couldn't be there to do it. A couple of my girls actually planned it and did most of it. My room mom came in and helped, but they did a great job. I am so thankful for such an awesome class this year. This year is going by way too fast and I am going to miss them so much

Thanks for the awesome cake Maddy!

Nascar two weekends in a row? Yes I think so! This is in Las Vegas and yes we are wearing matching shirts, but Kara's says "Edwards" and mine says "Kenseth"

We went to Phoenix for Kara's birthday and had so much fun! We love the headphones :)

Phoenix at the Saturday race.

I got to play with the boys for a night. Too bad the rules say I'm too old to be on the playground equipment so I had to just take pictures.

Do they come any cuter? I love that little smile :)

I love Coop :)

I know she's going to kill for me this picture but seriously we have no pictures together besides this one in like the last year! Don't be mad at're not allowed, and really who reads my blog anyway? I had to get glasses so I dragged Bec with me and tryed on like a hundred pairs before I made a decision. I knew she would be honest with me and I didn't want to be stuck with an ugly pair of glasses!

Remember you're not allowed to be mad at be and you're stuck with me anyway!
