I'm Thankful For

I have so much to be thankful this time of year!! I'm thankful for...
*Ryan- He does so much for me and our little family. He makes me be a better person, puts a smile on my face, rubs my feet, loves me, and cares about me. I love you Ryan always and forever!! I wouldn't be where I am without you!!
* Dallin- This boy is such a fun loving, sweet, smart, energetic boy. He grows and grows and amazes and amazes me all the time. He has a great memory and surprises us all the time with the little things he picks up on. He has a very tender heart and if I have to scold him he comes up to me and tells me he loves me. How can I be upset after that? He loves Jacob and Hannah so much. He is a great big brother!!
*Jacob- oh my Jacob! He loves to be held, LOVES sweets, loves Curious George, and loves Dallin and Hannah! Everytime he gets a treat or snack or drink, he wants one to give to Dallin. He has the cutest smile but is the one that tests my patience the most. I love this boy so much and love our snuggle times!!
*Hannah- She is at a really fun age and I could just watch her all day long. She loves to sit in boxes, carry anything and walk around the house so happy, loves to watch Baby Einstein, baths, and drinking Powerade. Yes, she will always be my Princess and I love her so much for bringing a sweet spirit into our home!
*Little, little one- We are so excited another one will be joining our family!! We are due May 6 and I am 16 weeks along. I am finally feeling better I hope. This time around has been so different than all of my pregnancies. I already feel so close to this little one. We rent a baby heart beat monitor since having a miscarriage at 16 weeks. I listen to the heart beat everyday for my own peace of mind. What a comfort that has been at the end of a long day when Ryan is working nights. I listen to the heart beat and it brings me such peace and joy. This little one, I know, is so excited to join our family. I have had a few cherished experiences I will never forget. We can't wait for this one to join our family too.
*My testimory- I am so thankful for the things I believe in and things that make me stronger. Sometimes when Satan comes along trying to knock me off, my testimony and my faith are the things I hold on to even tighter. I am thankful for always learning and growing so my testimony gets stronger and stronger.
*My Heavenly Father- I am so thankful for my Heavenly Father and the life he has blessed me with today. I am truly blessed to be a mother of 3 (soon to be 4) beautiful children and I have an amazing husband. Sometimes life is hard but in the end I know my Heavenly Father loves me and is here for me if I just get down on my knees.
*My Savior- I am eternally thankful to my Savior. He died for me that I can have my life I have today. I can't wait to hug him and thank him someday for all he has done for me. It have been neat talking to Dallin lately about Jesus and all that he has done for us.

I am thankful for so many more things but those are just a few that I hold dear to my heart right now.

Our Happenings

Life has been busy lately at our house. These are just a few pictures of our fun....

The boys love to build tracks for their trains. Jacob wanted a little one and then he sat in the middle of it. It was so cute!!

Jacob LOVES to swing!

Our happy Princess!

The boys have been loving our sandbox and for the most part play nice together.

Jacob got a huge cookie at the store one day- who wouldn't want one that big??!!

One cool dude!

Hannah got a huge sucker and it made her happy.

Dallin lost his first tooth- a top, front one. He went to the dentist a week later and has healthy teeth!!

Jacob loved searching for pumpkins at the pumpkin patch in Snowflake.

This is our huge pumpkin family! Ry wanted the huge 29 lb one so we all got to pick the one we wanted. As you can see, a few more got to come home with us.

The boys got to build a bear at Build a Bear. Dallin loves his bear and sleeps with it every night!!

Ryan was lucky when he got to snuggle with 2 cute kiddos!!

Hannah got yogurt one day and made a huge mess. Let's just say Ryan was in charge at that time.

We went to a birthday party for our friend's 2 year old. They had a huge pile of leaves. All the kids loved it.

Dallin got a huge hamburger one day for lunch. I was surprised when he ate most of it.
