Birthday and good byes

This year was an interesting birthday. The Friday before my birthday my sister was sealed to her family in the Arizona Temple. I was so excited for them. I could not help but to cry as I sat there and watched them get sealed together and be a forever family. Paige and Cole were so cute. Chase and I could not help but to cry as we gave each other a hug. This has been well worth the fifteen year wait. Then we had a going away and a congratulation party for chase and his parents. I can not believe that Chase has now left to serve a two year mission for our church in the Kiev, Ukraine mission. I know that I have told him how proud I am that he has chosen to serve a mission. As the time got closer I realized how much I was going to miss him. He not only is my nephew but he is like my little brother and good friend. He and Jared are good buddies also. As I sat in the chapel and listen to him give his talk I realized that I was no longer looking at a cute boy but I was looking at a fine young man. I man that I hope that my son will emulate and follow in his foot steps.Sunday was my birthday. I do not think that I have ever cried so much on my birthday. Tears of happiness, sadness and hope for the future.
Hugs and Kisses

Happy Forth of July

On July 1st I took the kids pictures. I think that they turned out really cute. Logan and Lexi loved getting the shirts from the Disney Store. Logan's shirt said Loyal American with pluto on it and Lexi's shirt said American Girl with Minnie Mouse.
Jared took the kids to see the movie cars. it was a very cute movie and I think that everyone should see this movie.
We had family that came out to our house for the Anthem Independance day celebration. Every year we have fireworks and rides and a band. At the start of the day we went to the community center to play at the water park and at the end of the day we ended up at the park for the fun. It was a fun day and I loved watching the fire works with Logan and Lexi.

Hugs and kisses-
