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...

more summer

I can hardly believe how fast time time is flying.
We are trying to make the most of every day, we have been loving
the warm days and the cool nights.
I made this blog private for a while and my mom was not happy.
She said she loves seeing Kristen's smiling face.
I guess I'll open it up again for a while until I can figure out how to add my mom.
I have a few personal reasons for wanting to make this a private blog.
I do realize that Kristen has been and continues to be an inspiration for many,
so I'll give it a little more thought. 
Until then, here are a few pictures from the past few days.





Kim and I each got a new bundt pan at the last Dillard's sale so we decided to 
have a bundt bake off. Mine is on the left and is a cinnamon roll cake.
Kim's is on the right and is lemon poppy. 
Kim actually won as mine was a little over done.
We are going to try more recipes next week.



 We are always excited to attend the air shows at Hill Air Force Base.
It didn't disappoint!
It is always a thrill.






Happy Summer!

I'll miss your blog once it's private! If you need help figuring out how to make it private and adding readers, please let me know. Kristen's light will still shine, even if her blog isn't here. I will always think of and pray for your family :)

I'll miss you if you do go private! Both of the cakes look delicious! I would devour the cinnamon and my husband would attack the lemon! :)

I was sad when you went private, too. I love to see Kristen's smiling face, and always remember her - and you.

I understand if you have to go private. Just know that you will definitely be missed.

Love,
