Busy October!!

October already! It has been a very busy month already. Kamden got his very first hair cut on the 5th. He's hair was getting so long in the back and on the top that I finally decided it was time.... Before After He also was blessed on Sunday the 11th. My mom made his suit. He looked very handsome and we appreciate everyone that came out to support us. He received a very sweet blessing by his daddy. I am so thankful that I have Nic and that it is important to him to be an honorable priesthood holder. Here is Kamden Nicholas Despain...

Also I had the opportunity to spend some quality time with my mom and two of my sisters, Kati and Lori. We went to Time Out for Women. It was a great time and there were some amazing speakers. We were missing two sisters. Deni lives in Utah and was unable to come. We did recieve a call Friday morning from Brett letting us know that Deni had been hit by a car while riding her bike. She was banged up and bruised but no broken bones or anything major. We were so thankful she was okay and felt really blessed that day. Deni is such a wonderful person and example. I look up to her in so many ways. She text me first thing the following morning and this is what the text said, "I woke up this morning and thought man I feel like I got hit by a car.. oh wait!" Ha ha. Part of the conference two of the speakers talked about being able to laugh our way through life and having a positive attitude.... "If you can laugh at it, you can live with it." Deni is definetly living this principle. I love you Den! One other sister couldn't make it.... my sister Azure passed away two years ago...Tuesday it was exactly two years. It is crazy it has been two years. I am so thankful for all the text and phone calls from everyone and for my mother in law that kept me busy with crafts to pass the time quickly. Also I am very thankful for my good friend Amanda. I had a ring on my doorbell early that morning and there stood Amanda with Dr. Pepper (Azure's fav. drink) and a big hug. Thanks Amanda you have no idea how much it ment to me. For all of you that didn't know Azure she was as a very fun, loving, talented mother, friend, sister, daughter, coach, and wife. I miss her dearly. I loved to play sports with her or to just sit and laugh. We used to dance and sing in the kitchen while cleaning. She was my number one fan and she loved my daughter like she was her own. I hope Taya knows that. I know that she took very good care of Kamden before he came to me. Whenever he stares of and just smile and coo's I can't help but wonder if she is standing right there... Sometimes I wisper in his to give her a hug for me too! I miss my sister but I am comforted with the fact that because she lived righteously on this earth and if I do the same that someday I can be with her again. That will be a wonderful day!! Anyway the day with the girls was a lot of fun. We were able to even get some pedicures. It was a great day... Taya and Kamden are both growing so fast. I can't believe he is already three months!
