Just one of those proud mommy moments...

Yesterday Nic came home with a truck full of pavers. Those of you who have seen Nics truck know that is a lot of pavers!! Nic and I unloaded the pavers while Kamden and Rhett played in the grass. Soon after we started Taya got home from school. Without being asked she went right inside changed clothes and came back outside jumped in the truck and started helping move pavers. She never complained and never had to be told to keep working. I was so impressed with her. At the young age of six she saw what needed to be done and jumped until the job was done. She always tells me that she just likes to be a helper. I hope she always continues to work hard and knows how proud we are of her!

Kindergarten Graduation

I cannot believe that my little girl just graduated from kindergarten! Mataya attended Legacy Traditional Academy this year and has learned so much. We are so proud of her and all of her hard work. It was a very cute graduation and alot of hard work went into every detail. It is so crazy to believe that she will be in first grade in August. The thought brings tears to my eyes wasn't she just this little girl....

But now she is this big girl.....

We are so grateful for all who came and supported her and also to those who were unable to make it but called! We have a wonderful support around us and she trully felt special!

It's been a while... I am not sure even where to begin...

Our family grew by two feet this February! Rhett Arthur Despain entered this world at 1:30 pm on February 24th, 2012. He weighed 7lbs 7oz an was 20 1/2 inches long. He has a head full of dark hair and is by far the darkest of the three kiddos. He's a very sweet, content, loving baby. All of us are head over hills for this little guy. He is named after three grandpa's, my grandfather Laureld ARTHUR Bigler, Nic's grandpa ARTHUR Lynwood Despain, and Nic's dad Steven ARTHUR Despain. I hope the strength and love for the gospel that these three amazing men had/have will help give this little boy the strength to with stand the temptations of our day.

We are alive :)

Wow, has it really been almost a year since I last updated?! I am a facebooker now lol:) I check that thing more than 3 times a day, helps having access on my phone ;) But anyway we are alive, all four of us! We have been busy little bees and have been blessed many times by our Father in Heaven! I will just give you the run down on our busy little family!

This is Mr. Kamden... he's a very lovable cuddly boy, with a big temper and a perfect heart melting smile. He gave us some scares recently with seizures... official diagnosis Complex Febrile Seizures... He's fine and he'll grow out of them. He loves balls, books, bats, cars, dinosaurs, his sister, the tramp, his daddy, nursery and lots of other things!! He's very entertaining and I adore him!! His vocabulary amazes me there is nothing he can't say! Although I believe his favorite word is NO!! Did I mention he's obsessed with Elmo?! He saw it once in the hospital and has been in love ever since! Oh and his Blaket only the ones that are tied and have pecos:) He's growing way to fast and it makes me sad. But we have been very blessed by this little man. We all love him ALOT! Nic loves having his little boy that he can tease and play with.... almost time for number 3......................... ALMOST I said!

This is Miss Taya... she is a sweet helpful little lady, with a mean streak and a sassy unforgetful personality. She loves school, primary, reading, singing, dancing, babies, barbies, her mommy, her brother, her daddy, her soft snuggly blankets, and her doggie. She begs everyday for a baby sister and to go to school. She will be attending kindergarten at Legacy in the fall (breaks my heart) and will be playing soccer this spring. She is sooooo excited about both!! She loves her brother and is a wonderful big sister. She is a big help to both Mommy and Daddy. She has trully been a blessing in our lives and how thankful we are for her. She is also very loved by all of us! We wouldn't trade her for the world (most days that is).

As for the man of the house... Well Nic is a busy man... he's working construction full time, attending school full time, and running a carpet cleaning business he is also starting his own company with a good friend of ours. We are so proud of him and the fact that he always makes time for us! He is a fun guy with an always teasing personality...gets him in trouble sometimes lol but we adore Daddy we couldn't ask for a better fellow!!

Mom.... well she's busy as well still babysitting, doing hair, and staying busy with her calling. She loves to read, sew, and be home with these little boogers :) She wouldn't change anything about her life. She feels trully blessed and content with all that Heavenly Father has blessed her with...

That concludes this brief update hopefully you'll hear from us soon!!

It seems like yesterday that I held you in my arms for the first time. I was scared to be a mommy. I hoped that I would be able to give you everything you needed in life and more than anything I prayed that you'd be healthy and happy! So far I think we are doing okay! I cannot believe you are four years old!! Daddy and I are so proud of the young lady you are turning out to be. You are a great friend to everyone. You are the BEST sister! You amaze me every day with your knowledge. You are so smart sometimes TOO smart! You know what is right and 9 times out of 10 choose the right way to do things or act. We are lucky to have such a special girl. Thank you Taya for letting us be your parents! (not that you have a choice lol) We love you so much and are so proud of you. I hope you always know how much we love you sis! Happy Birthday Mataya Kylee!

 We had a lot of fun on Taya's birthday. We rented a big water slide blow up thingy lol! It was SO MUCH FUN! Thank you to everyone that came and participated. It made her day! Mom D. Thanks for making the cake. It was cute even though she though it was Santa. Mom B. Thanks for pillow pet. She LOVES it... It goes everywhere with her!! She loved all of her presents and had " The BEST party EVER!!" Anyway here are some pictures of the big day! LOL! I didn't get a lot of pictures, sadly, it was crazy!! When she was opening up the family presents Kamden choked on something and threw up everywhere and it took me a while to get her to stop opening so we could take care of him lol! Thankfully he was in his highchair. Thanks again Cort for cleaning up the kitchen!

Happy Birthday Azure Dea!

Happy birthday to my dear sister and one of my best friends! I miss you dearly and still cannot believe you are not here to laugh with me. Although I do know that you are close everyday and watching over us. You have the best seat in the house and I know that you were snuggling with my little man before he came to this earth. I would watch him smile at nothing and I can't help but wonder if it was you that he was smiling at! I know that you are watching Taya and I am sure you are teaching her to sing. She sings all the time and I know she didn't get that from me or Nic! I can't wait to see you again and be able to tell you all of the things that I wish I had said before. I can't wait to see you with my little ones and to let them get to know you! I can't wait to hear your laugh or see your smile! I love you big sis! Happy Birthday!

A Very Happy Birthday To ME!!

Saturday was my 25th birthday! It's crazy that I am that old!! WEIRD!! It was a great birthday! Nic decided Friday night that we were going to go to California. I thinking he was joking just laughed and said, "Sure we are!" Well Saturday came and he had a hotel booked and everything so I opened my presents (a dress from Taya, a gypsie for my cricut, with all the dressings) and we packed and left. They were great gifts Nic wrapped everything individual down to the free sample and coupon that came with it, LOL!! We went to the beach Saturday evening and then went to the hotel. As you an imagine our kids were SO excited to be out of the car! They both traveled so well. We then decided that while we were in California that we might as well go to Disneyland. Taya REALLY wanted to go. We spent all Sunday at Disneyland. Kamden was a good sport and very happy seeing has he only had 2, 20 min naps compared to his 2, 2-3 hour naps! Taya got to see all kinds of Characters and Princess Jasmine was SO sweet with her. She sat and talked to Taya for like 5 min. She even saw Princes Tiana! We also got a front row seat for the parade and Taya got pulled down twice to the street to dance with the Characters and Dancers. It was SO much fun and we really had the best time. I was bummed that my camera died halfway through the day. I took alot a pictures with my phone too though. Taya said her favorite ride was Dumbo and that she had the "Best Vacation EVER." We went that evening to Nic's Aunt Tobi's time share and got to watch the fireworks on the roof with her and her kids! We were all VERY tired by the time we got back to the hotel. We went to the beach on Monday and met up with Nic's cousin, Kimi, her husband Mike, and two kids Zane and Nate. They brought a little grill and food to barbecue and we relaxed and played on the beach. It was really great to see them! Thanks again for the GREAT food and FUN!! We miss you guys already! We left the beach about 3 and headed home. The kids were so tired they slept the whole way home and the next morning till 7:30! It was a great Vacation and a much needed one at that! I am so glad we went! I am so thankful for Nic and the great husband and dad he is! He was so fun and helpful this weekend. He became Taya's and Kamden's favorite by the time we got home!
