Time and distance cant change this.

Throughout my life I have had many friends come and go, one that has meant a lot to me, and has stuck around all these years is Lindsay. We met in my sophomore year of college, and so many good things have come from that friendship. She always gives me a hard time about not updating my blog so I figured I would update dedicating it to her. Over the past month Lindsay has been in Utah visiting her parents while Cameron has been busy working. I cant tell you how excited I was to see her. It's funny that even though we havent seen each other in forever, we are able to pick up where we left off. Some of the best memories of my life are with Lindsay, and I wouldnt trade them for anything! I am really going to miss her when she leaves this week, the one tree hill marathons have been amazing!! No one appreciates it as much as us :) Thanks for being such an amazing friend Lindsay! I am grateful to have you in my life. I hope you are happy that I finally posted :)

ok I know it's been forever...







Can I just start by saying...life is CRAZY! I didnt even think it had been that long since I had last posted something, but December, I mean come on really?! Seems like this year has just slipped away from me. I will just update you a bit on what we have been up to. Track has started, and being a head coach is...stressful, hard, a headache, and so many more things...but I LOVE it. I am grateful I am not alone, as my friend Raquel is also head coaching track. It's been a different experience, but an experience to say the least. It will be good, I am very excited about a few of our athletes and how hard they have worked so far. Needless to say the season is almost over, and I am counting down for summer vacation...6 MORE WEEKS! I also have another countdown....FINALLY, 2 more assignments away from completing all of my classes for my masters degree in education. I can't believe it's so close...now if only I can finish these assignments so I really can enjoy my summer for once :)



As for Greg he is coaching baseball and working. He is doing really good with his job, and I am grateful for how hard he works. We celebrated our 3 year anniversary this year, and let me tell you, time has flown! I am thankful I have such a loving and supportive husband. Dont know where I would be with out him.



Well.....for now....that is all I have to update on. Maybe once Summer comes I will be a lot better at keeping this updated! Hope all is well! Love you all!

Santa Comes to the classroom

One more post I forgot....Greg stopped by my class room and dressed up like Santa. Raquel's boyfriend Brady came dressed as the elf. My kids LOVED it! They talked about it for the next week! It was fun having him come and see the kids in their excited moments.

So...I didn't have the disk of our family pictures when I posted these a few weeks ago, so here are a few of our favorites, straight from the photographers CD. We are excited for christmas and cant wait to go to Texas to visit friends and family. We hope you all remember the reason for this Christmas time and we hope you all have a safe and merry christmas, and don't forget to count your blessings! Love you all!

...

As some of you may know, we had a very tough weekend. We found out that our sweet little baby had no heartbeat. On Saturday a lot of pain started and we rushed to the ER. There the doctor's scheduled a d&c surgery. It has been a very emotional week but we are grateful for the gospel and our loved ones who remind us each day we will see that baby again one day. Thank you for all of your thoughts, and prayers. It truly means alot throughout this tough experience.

What makes a Mother
I thought of you and closed my eyes
And prayed to God today
I asked "What makes a Mother?"And I know I heard Him say.
"A Mother has a baby"
This we know is true"
But God can you be a Mother,
When your baby's not with you?"
"Yes, you can," He replied
With confidence in His voice
"I give many women babies,
When they leave is not their choice.
Some I send for a lifetime,
And others for the day.
And some I send to feel your womb,
But there's no need to stay."
"I just don't understand this God
I want my baby to be here.
"He took a deep breath and cleared His throat,
And then I saw the tear.
"I wish I could show you,
What your child is doing today.
If you could see your child's smile,
With all the other children and say...'
We go to Earth to learn our lessons,
Of love and life and fear.
My Mommy loved me oh so much,
I got to come straight here.
I feel so lucky to have a Mom,
Who had so much love for me.
learned my lessons very quickly,
My Mommy set me free.
I miss my Mommy oh so much,
But I visit her every day.
When she goes to sleep,
On her pillow's where I lay
I stroke her hair and kiss her cheek,
And whisper in her ear.
Mommy don't be sad today,
I'm your baby and I'm here.'
"So you see my dear sweet ones,
your children are okay.
Your babies are born here in My home,
And this is where they'll stay.
They'll wait for you with Me,
Until your lesson's through.
And on the day that you come home
they'll be at the gates for you.
So now you see what makes a Mother,
It's the feeling in your heart
it's the love you had so much of
Right from the very start
Though some on earth may not realize,you are a Mother.
Until their time is done.
They'll be up here with Me one day
and know that you are the best one!"
