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. I've contemplated on many occasions rather I should quit this blog or not. Each time I am inspired that I should not. 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! This I know. Our family continues to live and to love and this is our story...

just had to share

This is totally me. I know everyone else is thinking it but it is always me who
has to say it.  I can't tell you how many times I have been in trouble for
this very thing. One of these days I just might learn my lesson,
but probably not. 

We had another great day today. Each and every Sunday I make dinner
for all 20 of us. Today my mom and Richard's parents also came over. 
The little girls went missing for a minute. I found them both in Kristen's room.
They LOVE her room. Today they were looking through all of her many
cards. They also love her games, snow globes and dolls.

Today was another great day filled with family and fun.

Very cute pictures. Funny little comic! Sounds like you are busy with all your family. :) Fixing food for 20 people every week sounds busy and a tad bit overwhelming.
Hope all is going well.

That picture reminds me of the stories you told at grandmas a few weeks ago!
