Felicity our little artist

Felicity has been drawing almost every day and she draws the cutest pictures. I just wanted to share her latest drawing with you. It's of Me, Trevor, Felicity, Alexia, Sophie (the dog) and Sheeba (the cat). I think I might frame it up for her. I love it.

Sick day at the card house.

We woke up this morning to Felicity saying she had a fever in her head(A headache). I am just thinking she is sleep deprived but Trevor brings the girls to the kitchen and Felicity starts throwing up! She had the chills then she was hot then she had the chills. I went to church because it was the primary program and I had a part in it. I am so glad I didn't miss this. I felt the spirit so strong as the kids said their parts and sang the songs they knew. I feel so blessed to be a part of the primary...the only sad part for me was not having Felicity there to experience her first primary program. Trevor was so sweet to stay home with the girls so I could go today.

A rough day

This morning I woke up to a messy house grouchy kids and no motivation to do anything. I was busy all day and got nothing accomplished. I still have clothes in the wash that need to be dried...dishes in the sink that need to be washed... and toys on the floor that need to be picked up. Oh well, maybe tomorrow will be better. Here is to hoping for the best....maybe some motivation and a little happier Alexia!

Our Trip for the Celebration of Shane's life.

We received the news that our good Friend Shane passed away last week so we drove out for his Celebration of life ceremony in Bend, OR. Trevor has know Shane since he was 6 months old and Shane passed away 16 days before his 19th birthday. He was fighting cancer for the last three years and lived his life to the fullest. He did more in his 18 years than most people do in their lifetimes. He was a true gift to those around him. We were constantly amazed by his passion for life and for his example to everyone. He went through many surgeries including the amputation of his leg and still was strong and happy. He truly will be missed. His final request was to donate his body to OHSU to help with Cancer research. What an amazing kid!!!
This picture is of his family and us at the celebration.

We were lucky enough to time it just right for Maddie's birthday!

Maddie and her dad Kelly. We sure liked him he is a great guy!

Felicity and her cousin Tayven

Maddie and Mackenna were Thing 1 and Thing 2. Their mom. Loritta worked super hard to get them all ready but it was worth it! We sure enjoyed the time with Family and friends on the trip.

Our Visit to Bend

We took a last minute trip to Bend and celebrated Halloween with Felicity's cousins Tayven, Tayleigh, Maddy and Mackenna.
