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!

Festival of Trees



I love the Festival of Trees!
I have been planning and preparing for the festival since it ended last year.
We have 4 trees this year.
The first one my committee helped with.
It is decorated after the Disney movie "Brave"
It is dedicated to Kristen and fits well as she is one of the bravest 
girls I know. The tree is much more beautiful in person.




The second tree is dedicated to the nurses and staff in the cancer unit
at Primary Children's Hospital.
It is decorated with vintage Santas and is named
"White Christmas"



Kamie decorated a tree for my dad.
It is named "Christmas at Grandpa's"
It is darling.



Kamie also decorated a tree for Kristen.
It is called "Our Sweet Angel"
It is a beautiful tree.
