Mia being boss

**This video was taken with the old camera so sorry for the poor quality. Also, this post was written a week ago but blogger was being retarded and not letting me post it with the video. Anyway, Enjoy!**

Mia is the little momma of our group. Its hilarious. Yesterday, we were playing outside and she yells to Abbi, "Abbi! Come here!" Abbi looks up at her and runs the opposite way. Mia yells "Not that way!" Bahaha I thought it was hilarious. (Now she knows what it feels like not to have little girls obeying!  JK...) Anyway, its funnier if you can hear Mia say "Abbi, Come here!" I obviously didn't video the incident outside but I did get her on video saying it. Enjoy!

Thanksgiving

To my Friends and Family:

The holiday season is upon us again and I just love this time of year. I love the music and the glittery lights and the activities that there are to do. I love the excitement of packages and family get togethers and yummy food. I espcecially love the age my girls are at now because they are so much more aware of the holiday season now and all the extra things going on. Its very magical and I am so blessed and grateful for my family.

This year unfortunently I wont be able to be with my family for Thanksgiving. Jared's family is staying in Utah and my sister and her kids are driving to Alabama to spend the holiday with my parents. Im so glad that she gets to be with mom and dad this year and I know they will have a wonderful week with them. Its actually the first major holiday like this that I wont be with any other family besides my husband and girls. Its very strange. But also kind of nice and laid back which I am all about.

Thinking about what Im most grateful for this year I started to think about the year that Ive had. Without one shadow of a doubt this has been the worst year Ive ever had to endure due to one unthinkable and unimaginable tragedy. Nathan's loss has impacted my family's life dramatically and has left us all with a horrible painful hole that is mostly unbearable. Especially with the holidays, we feel that loss more and more. Its a cruel world we live in. Its unforgiving and unreliable and ever changing.

Having said that, I can say with one hundred percent certainty that I have never been more grateful for the gospel in my life. The knowledge that I have of where my sweet Nathan is right now and what he is doing and the promise that we will be reunited as a family FOREVER if we live up to our covenants is the greatest thing in my life. Bar none. This world can be a horrid place but the gospel has provided the peace and comfort that my family has needed to at least have something to look forward to and hold on to for dear life.

So that's what I'll be clinging to throughout my life on this earth. Those promises that I believe in with all my soul. I will be doing everything I can to keep the covenants that I have made so that my family can be together forever. And that is what I am most thankful for this year. I miss my precious Nathan so much, more than I can say. And I still havent come to full terms of his loss. But he will be a wonderful motivator for me personally to stay on the straight and narrow path back to my Father in Heaven.

Im thankful for all my friends and family this year. Thankful for all the relationships that I have. They are a lifeline for me. Have a wonderful holiday season loved ones. You are in our prayers and hearts!

Photo Bomb!

Well Jared and I finally shelled out the dough and bought a new camera, a fancy camera. Im totally in love with it. And yet it completely intimidates me. I hope that one day I will be able to use it to its full capacity and pump out some amazing pictures. These are my amatuer photos and I hope they only get better. But I have to say they are already a million times better than the ones I USED to post. Enjoy!

To Mother with Love

My mother requested AKA insisted that I post cute videos of my girlies today since we are all so depressed that the country decided to reelect a horrible president last night. Good Job America! We are winners! Enjoy videos.
