Pre-school Grad!!!

Last night we had pre-school graduation. AnnaBelle was so excited although, I don't think she knew what it really meant. They did a little program with things they learned during the year including their nursery rhymes. AnnaBelle was the loudest one and you could hear her over all the other kids. She wouldn't smile or wave or anything because she was concentrating so hard. We are very proud of her!
We are leaving for Las Vegas today to visit my sister for Memorial Day. We are so excited to swim and play and just relax!! Happy travels everyone!

Birthday Wishes!

L to R: Avery, Mom, Khloe, and AnnaBelle. Halloween 2006

Happy Birthday Mom and Avery!!!! I have the most amazing, wonderful mom! There are not enough words to express how much I love and admire my mom. She is the queen of everything and I am so eternally grateful for every moment that I get to spend with her. It's been almost 1 year since her last chemo treatment and she is now cancer free. That was absolutely the worst year of my life, but she was always strong and kept us all together. I don't know what I would do without her. She is the greatest! I love you mom!!!

Happy Birthday little Avery! You sweet little thing! Love ya!

Well, I am glad last week is over with. It was a crazy week and I am tired! I'm excited to just hang out this week, clean my house, and be with my family and friends. I have great friends in my ward. They always seem to know when to call when I need them. They always have something nice to say to lift my spirits, invite me on a walk, or just say hi. It's nice to have good friends that understand when you need a break. To not be mommy or wife, but just you. I have always had such great friends and influences in my life. I could never thank all of them enough for what they have done for me throughout my life and what great examples they were and still are to me.

Friendship isn't a big thing - it's a million little things.- Unknown
