This past weekend I did something so far out of my comfort zone.
I went to the LDS widow & widowers conference.
I did not know a single person there and for those of you who know me at all you know that I am NOT a people person! In fact I almost turned around and walked out when I got there.
But what an amazing experience!! I learned SO much and met so many amazing people. It was really nice to be surrounded by so many others who unfortunately understood what it's like to have lost a spouse.
The title of this conference was "Finding Joy In Your Journey" and when I got home some one had posted this on facebook and it reminded me of some of the things I'd heard at the conference. (except I would change the 'have' to 'had')

I know I still have a life to live, still don't know what it will consist of, but I do know that I came away with a renewed desire to be happy. And more than anything I want my three amazing boys to be happy!
Another thing I came away from this conference with was how blessed I really am. I was one of the few people there who is lucky enough to be surrounded by amazing supportive family (amazing in-laws included) and amazing friends. I really don't know how people get through something like this without support. So to all of you out there who are there for me every single day, thank you SO much, you truly will never know how much you mean to me!

Plus it was a great reminder that I have eternity to look forward to with the most incredible man there is! Can't wait!! I love you sweetie!

Hair Cuts

So the boys have all needed hair cuts for a very very long time! Nate has been 'growing his out' for a while and let's just say he doesn't have the best hair for a long style. I did feel pretty bad because he was pretty tore up when I was cutting it. He actually started crying when I was cutting the back and said "that's my favorite part" :( it was pretty sad. So I promised him he could try growing it out again and next time we'll get a 'real' hair cutter to cut it so it looks better.

I don't know why I didn't get a picture of Noah's before and after but I'll get a picture of him on here soon!

Fire Truck Fun!

It really pays off to have an uncle who's a fireman!
Uncle Trevor and the other fireman on his crew stopped by our house (it was a slow fire day ;) and my boys got to go for a ride in the 100 ft bucket! They loved it and are still talking about it! Thank Uncle Trevor for making a boring Tuesday into such a fun one! We love you!!

These pictures really don't show just how high in the air they were, it was crazy!
Hanging out over the house
and over the neighbors houses

They thought they were pretty cool!


Trying to get our monies worth out of our pass of all passes.
I know I really need to work on my picture taking :)
Nik & Noah

I'm sure there will be many more 'exciting' times at trafalga this year! Yippee!

Night at the Museum

Last month we went to the Hutchings Museum when they had their Night at the Museum night. Well it was really overrated. If you've never been to the museum before then it might have been worth going but for us it was pretty much just an hour of standing in the freezing cold to spend another hour in a very slow moving line seeing things we'd already seen before. Not exciting. But at least now we know :( Here are the only pictures I got, and yes I know they are all horrible but I was frozen and ornery :)

It's impossible to forget someone who gave you so much to remember.

Really missing Clint tonight. So glad we made so many amazing memories. Can't wait to make more some day. So blessed that I get him forever.

But right now I just really miss him :(
