Today was a bitter sweet day !!! I got to watch my brothers oldest boy baptize his younger brother. I was crying during the whole thing like I said it was a bitter sweet day. Thought a lot about my brother and I know he was there watching his son's today. It was good being with the family. Here are some pictures.

So for those of you who don't know, Meela is a big ham, meaning that she loves her picture taken and seeing herself on video. So I made her a little slideshow on the iPad. Hope you like it honey! Love you

I have been slackin on the blog :( I will try to get back into blogging again :) Ben is still with West Valley Police and I still work on Cottonwood!! We are trying to get into a house by the end of the year !!! We have also been trying to have a baby!!! :) I have a long ways to go and my doctor has me on all these meds to fix my body. :( Some of my meds make me real sick :( I pray nightly that Kris will send me one down :) I still think about my brother daily and some days are good and some days are hard for me!!! I tend to hide a lot of heart ache and sadness I still have to be strong for my sister and my brothers family!! I know that Kris watches me daily and he does take some of my pain away. I also know that he wouldn't give me anything I can't handle!!

Today was my brothers birthday he would have been 34!! Today was a hard day for me but I made it though it. Ben has been so good as a husband and friend. He has been by my side though everything. I went to work in the morning Ben got off work early to help me with the things I wanted to get done today. We went and got balloons and took them to Kris' gravesite, didn't spend along time there cause it was snowing and very windy. Then we meet with all the family for dinner and it was a bitter sweet time!! Got a cake to celebrate his birthday. It has been almost 3 months and it seem like forever since I have seen him or talked to him :( I miss him so much and not a day goes by I don't think of him!!! I wonder often what he is doing or thinking. I sure hope he remembers us down here! I hope as the time goes by it gets easier for all of us. I always remind myself that god wouldn't give me anything I couldn't handle. I can tell you one thing this has made me a stronger person and I will never take anything for granted!!! I love you brother :)

Last Thursday it was my work party at wheeler farm and we had a BLAST!!! I got to take my sister's kids with me and the had fun playing with all the kids that where there. They even got to see SANTA!!! Curtis did very well with Santa but Dylon didn't want anything to do with him. LOL He had a death grip on me and would not even look at him! Here are some pictures of some of my co workers and my sister's kids!!!
