Bryces Birthday

 Bryce's birthday was awesome! It's kind of awkward not knowing how to celebrate but knowing you want to do something. It was so wonderful to get texts, phone calls, emails and flowers. I felt selfish thinking that I had set myself up to get to hear from my loved ones on this day. I didn't have time to be sorrowful, well not too much time anyway because I was showered with phone calls and texts.  There are others but I didn't get pictures but still the blessings are the same.  We helped a family cover mortuary cost as someone helped us when Bryce died and we wanted to do the same.  It made me cry to see the acts of kindness that were being rendered. I love you all so much. You make me so grateful! I love knowing that my family is there for me. They love me. Life is good and Heavenly Father has blessed our family with a burning desire (called Bryce) to be obedient.

Dear Bryce,
I can't believe it's been one year! I got to go thru our box that has pictures and loving cards that people sent when you died. Bryce people are so good. They care. It is overwhelming to know that we have people looking out for us, caring for us. I pray that I can be caring and loving like people were (are) to us. I know you are busy. I know that you are with loved ones in heaven too. Tell them hello for me. Give them a hug and tell them thank you for all that they have done for us. I cant wait to meet them. There are some i have only seen pictures of and heard valiant stories. There are some that I remember very well and cant wait to see them again. We are a big family sealed by the priesthood power. I am beyond grateful for this truth. You see Bryce sometimes you seem very far but really I know that you are right there. You are right there waiting for us. You love us and want us to be happy. You know that it will be but a moment. Sometimes I forget this and need reminded. Please help me to remember. We will be a big happy family together forever. I love you Bryce. I think about you all the time. I am so grateful that I got to carry you for the whole 9 months. I cherish that time. I will always cherish that time. I love you baby Bryce! Mommy loves you so much that sometimes I feel like my heart might burst. I know that it won't though because deep down I know that I will see you soon. I can't wait. Please help me to remember that it is just a moment. I love you bud. I have to go now, darnet... but I will see you soon.

Love mommy

Moab 3/2013

    The hotel we stayed at had a playground and the kids loved it!  There was a pirate ship and the boys
I had to include this one because Bro always does this with his lips!
 You can't really see it that well but there were people walking up the canyon to the start of the race.  Lots of people.  Over 3000 people.
                             We bought these pillows to help the boys be more comfortable but they would never     wear them to sleep.  Koby thought it was to keep his neck warm.

                                           Uncle Brandon totally scared Koby.  It was funny!
                                                                                 The boys!
                                                                   I sure do love this guy.
                                                         I kind of like this guy too.  ;)
                                                                     Another one!
                                                                          The fam!
                My sister took this one of me.  I don't generally like pictures of myself but I liked this one.
                                                     Sweet Kenton!  He is adorable!
                                                      At the finish!  Yay, glad to be done!

We had so much fun!  I love to hang out and see new things.  The boys are so much fun and love all of the adventures of vacation!  It was fun to be in Moab with 3000 other people and their families to show our gratitude for our bodies and run.  I am so grateful for the beauty that Heavenly Father has blessed us with.  Moab was gorgeous.  I am pretty biased but I love hanging out with my family.  It was so fun to be with all of them in Moab minus Abby and Shane.  We missed them!
