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.
