3 Shout Outs!

1. To my beautiful Mom whose birthday was last week. It was her first birthday without her mother here and I know it was hard for her but she is amazingly strong. She is always positive no matter what life throws at her (which seems to be a whole lot lately). I love you mom, you are the BEST! We are all so blessed to have you in our lives!

2. To my brother Denis (on the right) who got his mission call a few months ago and I haven't mentioned it on here yet. I'm not a great sister. He is going to South Africa and leaves in the middle of May. He doesn't even have to go to the MTC in Provo, he gets to head straight to South African MTC. Denis is hilarious and sweet. He's been so helpful lately and we will miss him so much, especially my kids. We know he will do great though! Love you Denis!

3. Last but not least my brother Kenny who also received a mission call last week to Mexico. At age 23 that can be an even harder decision to make, especially because it's his second time around but we are so proud of him and know he will do great too! Kenny leaves the middle of July. He has the biggest heart I have ever seen and can ONLY see the good in people. We love you Kenny!

How exciting to have two brothers out at the same time....there is just no greater gift they could give to my boys either than to set an example like that! Actually I should say 3 brothers, Quinn (Cameron's brother) is out already serving in Taiwan. We are so blessed!

Oh and I better throw in this last shout out to my brother and my sister in-law and their two sweet kids in Iowa. They just found out they get to move back home to Utah for a year! WAHOO! My kids are so excited to have their cousins around for a little while, even if they do have to move to Michigan after. Mike graduates from Medical School this May and starts his residency this summer. Congratulations you guys!

A new sight at our house!

(Didn't feel good about potential perves looking at my boys in their underwear so I took to this picture down)

Notice something new? Two boys in underwear! Wahoo....I'm so excited that I am no longer in the diaper stage. And I could watch Max run around in his underwear all day, there is something about a toddler's little body that is just so cute. (no this doesn't mean i'm out of cleaning the accidents off my floor stage, unfortunately that is still a work in progress)

And other news....wait there is no other news but I do promise to be better at updating my blogs more often. And I have noticed that I am not the only slacker lately, so to all my friends and family, here is my personal invitation to update your blogs more regularly as well. You know who you are! How else am I supposed to waste my day away :)
