I have been blessed to have these girls by my side for more than the past decade. Without them, I'm not sure I could have survived. They have been my rock, my soft place to fall and my listening ear. They have lifted me up, helped me become stronger and have supported me through every joy and every heartache. I am grateful for the amazing women they are, for their bright examples of faith and love, for bring so many smiles my way and for loving me through some of my darkest hours. I love you both, thank you for being my angels, I love you!

I got to hang out and spend 6 hours with these awesome ladies last week while we helped prepare food for our Relief Society Women's Conference. It was truly an amazing night and our messages were inspiring and completely uplifting. We talked about our sphere of influence, about the amazing influence we have over others and the responsibility that comes with it, we talked about being a light to others around us, being unafraid to share the gospel, creating close bonds, loving, serving and realizing our own potential. It was great and I took notes non stop. I am grateful for the gospel of Jesus Christ in my life. It is who I am and I pray I am influencing for good, I pray my example is helping bring others unto Christ, I hope I am recognizing my blessings and sharing my joys.

As Tristin approaches 12 next week, I am completely and 100% in denial of what is happening. He is now taller than I am and under going major body hair growth. Last week the 2 of us hung out while Dad was away. We ate pizza in bed and watched funny shows. I soaked it in- the few hours I had where he actually wanted to be around me- it was great!
Someone please stop this little guy from growing please!!! How can he be 2 in a few months!! Roman is a pure delight. He is at such a fun age and he is starting to copy almost everything we say these days. He was even singing "Let it go" the other night. He loves animals, the park, motorcycles, cars and suckers! He is about the cutest thing too and melts my heart when he grabs my cheeks and lovingly says "Mama!"

Daisy just finished up her play/musical that was titled: The story of TeaMoon. Her music teacher, Mr. Wayman did an incredible job and spent countless hours helping these guys put on a super play. We got to see it 5 times, at the school and at the Idaho Center, Daisy was the Love Goddess and a villager. She did a great job with her lines and singing- I was really proud of her!

After every holiday Angie and I are relentless at getting all the deals! I don't mean the 50% ones, I mean the .10 ones! We scored BIG TIME several times, days, and stores. With all our effort we put into it, we deserved it though! Talk about exhausting! I love my sweet Angie with all my heart. She is probably my only friend who gets as excited as I do over deals. While our husbands think we are insane for being excited about Easter stuff, we know that God blessed us to have stuff for the following year/s! There are many other trips not documented...

I love spending time with my Dad- every moment I have with him, I cherish. Our rides are my favorite times because its usually after a long day or week when I have to feel the wind in my hair and let my my troubles fly away. I love you Dad and thank you for these moments. I've waited most my life for them...
