6th anniversary!!

On Saturday, Richard and I celebrated our 6th anniversary. My parents have been so nice and they have had our kids up in SJ since Saturday (I am going up there tomorrow). We got to spend the weekend together just relaxing!! It was awesome!!!

I love Richard so much!! He is such a great man. He is an amazing husband and father. He works so so hard to provide for our family. He sacrifices a lot of his favorite things to provide for us and to spend his extra time with us. He honors his priesthood, he loves the Lord. He fulfills his callings. He is willing to do anything for anyone at any time. He loves me probably more than I deserve and is genuinely happy when I am happy and genuinely sad when I am sad. He is still so ATTRACTIVE and he knows how to make me laugh all the time. I am so grateful and blessed to have him as my eternal companion!!

Mom's 50th Surprise Party!! (A ton of pictures)

Today is my mom's 50th birthday. My sisters and I thought it would be fun to throw her a surprise party this last weekend!! I thought she would have caught on to something, but thankfully she did not. She thought she was coming to Jackson's birthday party, but boy was she surprised when she walked in to find, close to 50 family members, yelling, "SURPRISE!!!" (Sorry the picture is so dark. The lighting was bad and my c0mputer won't edit it any more than this.)

Aaron (mom's brother), Kris (sister), mom and Kelly (brother).

Here is all of my mom's side of the family that was here, unfortunately we are still missing a lot of family members cause they all live AT LEAST six hours away.
My cousin's wife Kelly and my cousin Jandee!! They are both so cute!!

There were many of my dad's side of the family in attendance as well!!
Jeanine (dad's sister) with baby RJ (Cassie's baby) and Cassie (my cousin)

More cousins, M and J (I am not sure if they want me to put their full names)!!

Lucia with Kendall and Satya plus their families were all there!!

Jessyka and Nate were also there!!!

There are many others who were there and I am sorry if I don't have a picture of you up!! Thanks so much to everyone for coming and for helping to make the party so awesome!!

The party kept going long after most of the guests had left. We played Rock Band and Guitar hero for quite a while and had a blast (thanks Liz and Jason)!!

Happy birthday Mom!! I love you so much!! You are such an amazing woman with so many talents. You are so smart, beautiful, you have the most beautiful voice, you are a great teacher. You are so selfess, you are always doing something for someone else!! You are such a great listener and I love how close you are to the spirit!! Thanks for giving me such a great example of what I need to do to be a great mom, wife and woman!! Thanks for being such an amazing mom and friend!!

Happy birthday to Jackson, Jessyka, Trenton and Brodee!!

Jackson just had his third birthday last wednesday. It is hard to believe that he is already three, but at the same time I have thought he was three for a while because of his size. We had a great day and my friend, Misi, was so nice and made us an awesome Mater cake!! It was so good that Jackson did not want me to cut into it. He started crying and said, "You are going to hurt him," but he sure was happy when he tasted the yummy cake with peanut butter inside. He got a ton of awesome gifts from family and he wanted to go to chuck e cheese for dinner so that is what we did.

The awesome cake:

I love this boy so much!! He brings so much joy into our home. He makes us laugh constantly and he is the best snuggler of all times!! We are so grateful that Heavenly Father has blessed us with him!!

He is not the only birthday boy we love!! My best friends, Satya and Lucia, and I all had our boys within one week of each other three years ago. Jackson was born on the 6th, Trenton on the 11th (today is his birthday) and Brodee was born on the 13th. I love their boys so much as well and it is fun that the three of them love to play with each other (most of the time). I swiped this picture off Lucia's blog! Thanks Lucia!!

Also I cannot forget to wish Jessyka a happy belated birthday!! She is such a great friend and person!! Thanks for always being willing to help us at any time!! You are so much fun to be around and you are so gorgeous!! We love you and hope you had a great day. Thanks again for spending some of your special day with us!!
