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!

Quiet Week


Quiet is good. Kristen’s teeth seem to be doing much better, other than last night she was complaining about her front teeth hurting so I hit her up with some Tylenol. That girl has not been sleeping well lately. She’s awake until at least 11 and up before 6. So if she isn’t sleeping well then neither am I. I guess we will work on that. It has been cold the last few days, I am not sure if I am ready for fall. Ready or not it is on the way. I took Kristen out to the field today and let her choose her pumpkin. She is really cute about pumpkins; she always gets a pen and draws the cutest face on it. The funny thing is that it is always the same face year after year. Kristen and I have been home a lot lately, and I am totally fine with that, there is so much talk about the flu that I really don’t care if her and I stay home all winter. Our days have been filled with canning peaches and tomatoes. We also dug the potatoes last night. It’s amazing as it seems like we were just barely putting the garden in. Ryan is busy with school and baseball and I feel bad that I can’t make it to all of his games. He says he doesn’t care and at least Richard tries to get to them. Kamie is busy going to school full time and also working full time, she is never here. Kim is liking school and staying busy, but we all really miss her. We have decided that Kristen needs a trip to Disneyland. My plans were to take her there as soon as she was finished with treatment and feeling good. I think the time is here. Not sure when, but soon!

Kristen you picked the perfect pumpkin. I never saw such a perfectly shaped one like that.I wouldn't mind staying in for the winter myself. Miss Emilia will not be making any appearances in crowded places anymore.

If you go to Disneyland we are getting in your suitcases. Thanks for your help with the blankies. My mouth dropped when I checked my email and had like 30 new ones. A little overwelming.
