I created this blog when my sweet little girl, Kristen, was diagnosed with cancer, for the third time. After fighting for almost 3 years Kristen was called home to that same God who gave her life. One of my favorite quotes comes from Neal A. Maxwell- "Those who "plow in hope" not only understand the law of the harvest but they also understand what growing seasons are all about. True, those with genuine hope may see their proximate circumstances shaken like a kaleidoscope at times, yet with the "Eye of faith" they still see divine design." Kristen blessed lives and continues to do so. Her light continues to shine. As for me, I continue to "plow in hope" knowing well that Kristen is mine for eternity. Families can be together forever!

Happy Birthday to the Kiddies!

Two year ago today our family was blessed with not one but two babies. My oldest daughter and my oldest son and his wife both had a baby on the same day. Jordan was such a gentleman and let Ellie arrive first. 2 hours after Ellie arrived
Jordan made his appearance.
It was such a fun day!
Today we celebrated their 2nd Birthday. We went to Katy's house and had a Birthday Bash. Katy asked me to make some Elmo and Cookie Monster cupcakes...they turned out pretty cute. Kristen was feeling good today which was definitely a plus!
