Then after playing at the Turners, we came home and had a little fun playing before the birthday girl went to bed. Love you Scarlett!

Police Station Fieldtrip

Elizabeth's preschool took a tour of the police station for their February field trip. Elizabeth and her cousin Gabe had googly eyes for officer Derrick. All the boys in the group decided when they grow up are going to be policemen. Elizabeth told me she thought it was too dangerous, so that she is just going to be a dancer.

LOVE reminds me that nothing else matters

I remember when I was pregnant with Elizabeth, Ryan and I would constantly talk to her and tell her how much we loved her. Although I didn't realize how much I truly loved her till the moment I laid eyes on her. I felt like my heart skipped a beat and I lost my breath, she was just so beautiful.
I love the month of February cause we get spent time doing so many cute valentine activities at home, and preschool as well. She made this awesome valentines necklace that she happily shared with Scarlett and I.

I Like To Look For Rainbows Whenever There Is Rain

I love the primary song When I Am Baptized. My favorite part is the chorus. I want my life to be as clean as earth right after rain. I want to be the best I can and live with God again.
Going to a baptisms always reminds me the promises I made when I was so young, and how as I have gotten older I still have the same guide to direct me throughout my life. I feel very blessed to have the Holy Ghost and the Gospel in my life.
I'm so proud of my niece Isabella for making the decision to get baptized. We are so proud of you Bella!

Happy Birthday Jonathan & Faith

I remember when I was younger thinking how neat it was that we had so many twins throughout our family. I always thought it would be so great to have a twin, and I remember my Aunt Kathy telling me that only some cool kids get one, but that I was special because I was adopted.
Then when I was a little older and found out we were getting twins, a boy and a girl, plus their baby sister, I thought our family must have been super cool, lol. Even though I was young, I still remember the very moment when Jonathan and Faith were taken out of the car, and set on the front lawn. I fell in love with them right there and then, and I knew I never wanted them to part from us. They both had such tender smiles, and beautiful eyes. They were just learning how to walk and still a little wobbly so I chased them just in case they fell on there cute little bottoms. I never wanted them to grown up, but I learned to deal with it, lol. Some of my fondest memories were laying on the front room floor and Faith and I would trade off scratching each others back while just talking about everything, sometimes nothing at all. I would spend hours reading Dick & Jane books with Jonathan, and his eyes would just light up when we read, it really was worth all the time in the world.
I just can't believe they are 17! How did so much time escape from my sight?
I am so proud to have them as my younger siblings, and I hope you both had a Happy Birthday! We really enjoyed celebrating with you!

Remember how cool you guys are, and how you are never alone because you always have each other!
