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!
