The reason I blog...

"You will have significant experiences. I hope that you will write them down and
keep a record of them, that you will read them from time to time and refresh
your memory of these meaningful, significant things. Some of them may be funny.
Some may be of significance only to you. Some of them may be sacred and quietly
beautiful. Some may build one upon another until they represent a lifetime of
special experience."

Holy cow…where has the time gone?? This year has gone by so fast! I’ve been terrible at keeping this blog going…it used to be so easy for me…now not so much! There’s so much I need to update/document…and who knows if I’m ever gonna find time to do it. So I think I’m just gonna do a recap of some of the things we’ve been doing the last few months:

We were blessed with 2 new nephews/cousins in May…both named Jackson/Jaxon! Congrats to Kimi and Jack and Scott and Melissa! They are both so cute!

I got set up on a date with a great guy named Jeremy (he’s the guy in the pictures above)! Thanks Lis!

Aspen put on two great performances in May at the Spring Ice Show…she was the cutest Dorothy I’ve ever seen!! I’m so proud of how well she’s doing at figure skating! She’s currently in lessons again 2 days a week and loving it!

The kids and I went on a mini vacation to take some pictures of some good friends in St. George…we had so much fun!! Jeremy just so happened to come with us…and stayed with his grandparents…

Aspen finished up her year of Kindergarten at the end of June…I was able to go with her to her very first field trip to the zoo! It was so much fun watching her interact with her friends in her class. She passed all her final tests and is totally ready for 1st grade…although she’s sad that she won’t have Miss Amy next year. =(

It’s a long story…but a LONG paperwork process and 50 “non-dates” later...Jeremy and I are officially together… and I couldn't be happier!

Princess (our cat) unexpectedly had baby kittens…2 survived. The kids named them Pumpkin and Jack-Jack! Looking forward to getting rid of them soon….let me know if you want one!! Both boys…one orange…one black!

Clayton and Aspen went to the dentist…Aspen had 1 small cavity…Clayton had 5! Clayton had to have surgery to fix his teeth…he ended up with 4 silver caps on his back molars and a pulled molar…now he calls them his “Transformer” teeth!

Aspen turned 6 years old on June 21st …we had a lady bug party for her at the park...and she was spoiled with lots of great presents! Thanks to everyone who came to make her day special! I can’t believe I have a 6 year old!!

We had lots of visitors in June…Mark, Amber and Rachel…my Mom and her husband Mike…then my Mom and my Grandma Judy. While they were here I received my Patriarchal Blessing…and it was so nice that they could be a part of that!

I went to the Salt Lake Temple to do baptism’s with my brother Mark and his wife Amber…first time in the Temple with anyone in my family…it was pretty cool! While we were there…we saw David Archuleta get baptized…which was even cooler (sorry Mark)!

I went to the Backstreet Boys concert with my friend Tara and her sister Carlie…we had so much fun…6th row on the floor…it was SWEET!

On July 13th…I turned 27…I’m so old!! Jeremy and I went to watch the Joseph Smith movie at the JS Memorial Building…then we had dinner at The Roof…which was amazing! The view…the food…the date…it was amazing!

The kids and I are having a great summer…I can’t believe it’s almost over! School starts back up next month…which is crazy! But things are going really well for all of us! I know that’s a lot of text…so if you’re still with me…I’ll have pictures to follow up all these events soon. And maybe I’ll one day post some pictures from Christmas last year…or Easter…
