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...

a little more Halloween

We had our Halloween feast yesterday.
Complete with sloppy joe's and all the fixins.
We really love to celebrate.

I only get a few trick-or-treaters, so I make it fun for those who do come.
What could be better than an extra large symphony bar?
Especially when you melt it and dip your bananas and strawberries in it.

I went to the cemetery tonight and left a pumpkin and some
lights for Kristen and my parents. 
As we were leaving I turned and took one more picture.
I told Richard that this is the 7th year in a row that we have come to the
cemetery on Halloween.
I also said we would be coming every Halloween for the rest of our lives.
Kristen loved Halloween.

Here is the little princess on her final Halloween here on earth.
A beautiful princess she was and still is.
