"If you know someone who has lost a child or anybody who's important to them, and you're afraid to mention them because you think you might make them sad by reminding them that they died, they didn't forget they died. You're not reminding them. What you're reminding them of is that you remembered that they lived, and that's a great, great gift" - Elizabeth Edwards

"The deep hurt is the mirror image of the deep joy that still awaits you." - Bruce C. Hafen

Some Family Pictures!

My Family is Here!!

My family arrived here last Friday! I love having them here. Nicci and Lionel love it too. It was their first time meeting their cousin Cambrianna.  They get spoiled with so much love and attention! We have done a lot of fun things and still have one more week to go! Today we went to an underwater museum. Nicci had a lot of fun.  We also drove to Dosewallips state park close to the Olympic mountains. It was beautiful there. We have taken lots of pictures, here are some of them.

Eric’s Birthday!

Eric turned 27 yesterday! We had a good day. Eric’s dad, Tracey and the twins came over. We ate some chimichangas for dinner and Eric’s favorite dessert-blackberry pie. I’m so grateful to have such an amazing husband. He is the best! I love him so much! He makes me so happy!

My Cute Kids!

Lionel turned 7 months yesterday! He is so close to crawling! Nicci loves her new sunglasses and wears them a ton! Today when we were on a walk she saw some flowers. I helped her pick some and she gave them to Eric later when he came home from work. It has been sooo warm and nice outside these last few weeks. I love it!

Wait, is it already June?!

I can’t believe its already June! My parents and most of my siblings are coming in 11 days!! They are going to stay here for 2 weeks. We can’t wait! My sister, her husband and their daughter is coming up from Utah too! Let the countdown begin!


Our Family
