My Grandpa Bill......

Well it is 5 in the morning and I just got the news an hour ago that turned my world upside down, the call you always hope never comes, but unfortunetately today I was awaken by a call from my mom letting me know my grandpa riggs had passed away. He had fallen out of his wheel chair two days ago while in the garden and had broken his neck, we had no idea that would lead to his passing. My grandfather was a humble, loving husband, father, grandpa, and great grandpa. He was dedicated to serving the Lord every chance he could. I am so thankful that I was able to spend some of his birthday with him the other day, I hope he knows how much myself and my husband appreciate him and love him.

I couldn't bring myself to post this yesterday because I couldn't stop crying.

Here is the obituary in the paper:

My Sweet Husband!!

My cute husband decided to take me to this nice restaurant called The Compass in Phoenix. He has always driven by it but never been to eat there. It is on top of a hotel and it spins while you eat dinner, it was so amazing! We had a really nice time.

I was trying to take a picture of the view outside but I had my flash on so when I took the picture the reflection from the glass got this awesome shot of my hot husband instead!! I thought it was pretty good for not trying!

A little blurry, but you get the idea. The view was amazing!!

Again, blurry but it was the best I could do. AMAZING VIEW

I think this is the annoyed look!! He hates when I take his picture, but I couldn't help myself.

It was only fair that I had to get a photo by myself too! This way he wasn't so embarrassed.

I love this picture of him staring out the window at the beautiful view, it was so romantic.

Look at my steak, it was the best meal I have ever had, it was definitely worth the money!

If the steak wasn't good enough, look at our dessert, my mouth is watering just looking at the picture again.

I had been trying all night to get our picture together so I finally got a couple.
One of the employees saw me trying to take our picture with my timer so he graciously offered to snap a shot of us, finally!

It was an amazing dinner and a great experience, I love spending time with my husband, we always seem to have so much fun!

Jeffs adventure across the country!!

Jeff's friend works for a motor home company and whenever someone buys one, Andrew drives the motor home to its new owner, this one happened to be in Pennsylvania. Jeff thought it would be fun to go on the trip with his friend and off they went. They left Wednesday night and got there Saturday, they went through ten different states and got to see some neat sites. I was so jealous, that would be a fun adventure someday to do. Jeff is set on buying a nice motor home now, I told him one day when we have "extra" money he could!

Another disappointment

Well today I officially found out that I had my second miscarriage. I was hoping this time would be better then last time. My doctor said next time I test positive on a test I have to go in to see him so they can do some blood work and all that other dreadful stuff. We just have to look at it as a blessing and hope and pray when the time is right it will happen.

I think back to when me and Jeff were first married and the topic of having kids came up and he said in his joking manner, "we are waiting 5 years to have kids" and I said dream on buddy. We joked about it for a long time and now we have been married for almost 3 1/2 years and by the next time I get pregnant again we might almost be at that 5 year mark. Dang how time goes so fast.

My sister Angela text me to see how things went at the doctor, after I told her the news she asked if there was anything she could do, I responded with, I might need to come see my nieces so they can make me feel better. Her two kids can brighten up my day no matter what especially Kadence because she actually gets excited to see me and says my name and tells me she loves me, on the other hand Addiysn sits there and smiles at you when you talk to her and it makes you feel so good to see her smile.

When it rains it pours!!

So this month has been crazy but to top it off my dog got bite by a brown recluse spider and had to go in for surgery the day after memorial day, let me just say, I am so glad it got my dog and not me or my husband. Have you ever seen what those do to you? It is so gross. The other bad thing is that my dog is inside most all the time so it is most likely that he got bite in our house!! I couldn't even sleep when I found out what had bite him, can you blame me?

Happy Mothers Day

My sister Angela had these cute pictures taken for our mom for mother's day.
Today was a good day, I went to my parents ward, because my husband is out of town, and it was good to see a lot of people from when I was growing up. My brother surprised my mom by blessing the sacrament today, for those of you who don't know he had gone away from the church for a while and it is a miracle to see how far he has come. My brother is going to baptize his girlfriend Meghan this coming Saturday, which is really exciting for everybody.
Life is good.

Funny moments........

So me and Lesli were going to go walking at Red Mountain Park so we decided to meet at the Park so we could go our separate ways when we were done. I get almost to the park when I get a call saying she is on Brown between Recker and Higley and she has run out of gas.....of course she was sticking way out into the lane so everyone had to go around her, so I turn around and go to find her, it wasn't hard to miss her white Tahoe. So I decide to stop my car and get out so we could start pushing, we thought to ourselves, there is no good people left, no one stopped to help when all the sudden a couple of guys come up and helped us get to a side street. We were in our running clothes on brown trying to push a freaking Tahoe by ourselves, how funny would that be to have seen. Thanks to those nice guys that helped us we didn't end up road kill. Needless to say after her husband brought her gas we went on our way and still worked out. It was definitely embarrassing and funny at the same time.

My neice Kadence...So big.

She is so pretty with her big bow, and she knows it!

On Easter, Me and Jeff let her play in the water fountain and she got a kick out of it.

We didn't know she was going to soak herself by sticking her little finger in the hole where the water comes out.

Lets just say she ended up like this, and she was loving it.

Updated pictures of my neice Addisyn!

Grandpa Lyle loves holding her, he calls her his little angel.

Kadence loves being the big sister and trying to give her little sister her pacifier.

Isn't she so cute when she sleeps, especially in that cute Easter dress.

She decided to wake up and smile. She is a very smiley baby. My sister lucked out with her.

Awe.... so cute.
