There aren't too many words that describes this little picture. They had built a bear cave and were the cutest little bears in the whole world. I love their smiles.
I sometimes need to take a step back and refresh my perspective and attitude about my role. I am slowly but surely gaining a stronger testimony about being a stay at home mom and the joys that come from raising a family. I have always known that is what I want to do, I think that because of the example from my own mother, but I sometimes wonder if it was blind faith at first. I am beginning to really and deeply understand the beauty of my calling and decisions that I have made to allow me to be a mother. I am extremely grateful to Heavenly Father for guiding me here to this place and relish in the fact that I have these adorable people to call me:) Speaking of which, Daisha is awake from her nap calling out "mama, mama". I am excited because when I walk in that room to pick her up from her crib, she is giong to be so Excited to see me. It's kinda nice being a mom, at least I know she likes me:)
I need to catch up on my trip to CO so I am finally doing it. The last night I was there, Linda took me to get a massage. It was fabulous. Absolutely fabulous, after we went to a cute greek restaurant and she introduced me to "a flaming piece of cheese". It has some fancy greek word, but here it is, on fire, we gobbled it all up after it stopped being on fire:) Then I sampled a few other greek appetizers that were pretty yummy. It was so nice to go out with Linda to visit and catch up. She truly is wonderful. I just love her. I am sad that I didn't get a picture of the two of us :(
Eating up the rest of their snow. It was a fun trip. We made it back home safely and were able to stop by Wendy's house again on the way home. I woke up to inches and inches of snow on my car, so that had me a little worried, driving through wyoming in a snow storm is not my idea of fun, but the weather turned out to be good. It's always nice to be with family, I don't get much family time in Idaho so whenever I can get it, I really enjoy it. It is also nice to have Tate back home from his trip, although he had a blast and we are so glad he was able to go.

I have just made like 5 or something new posts about our new adventures, so if you want to get them in order, you should read ahead quite a few. So this is the last post of the day.
I was playing dinosaurs before bedtime and then started telling kasen and kirsten a bedtime story about the little teranadon that didn't want to go to sleep. Kasen was out like a light. He played and played with his buddy dash while we were out to eat and just has been waking up so early and having late nights with family and granted, it is like 9:30, way past his bedtime. I sure do love and adore him, he is such an awesome boy. He is really into terranadons.
Last night I got to be apart of a very fun thing. Bev and Scott had their big ultrasound and had the tech put the gender of the baby in an envelope, we then went out to eat at yummy yummy and too much food Rodizio grill for scotts birthday and the big occasion. bev had the waiter write whatever the gender was on the dessert plate and it was awesome. They came out with a candle, and a piece of paper hiding the cute little "its a boy" sign. They were thrilled, wanting a boy badly.
It's a boy.
Me with my most beautiful sister on their fantastic night.
Here is Daisha in the tub with her cousins. I love tub pictures with cousins. I love looking at the ones of me when I was a girl, they are so cute. I have a really cute one of me and my cousin Jen, who we were pretty good friends growing up.
But Alana was not done with her cheeses.
I just absolutely love and adore this little girl. She makes me so happy.
Kasen loves to go sledding and has been going night sledding almost every night this week. He won't go all by himself, but that's okay cause he usually has his cousins that loves to go too, but he has to wait for them to get home from school. so here is joslyn and kasen night sledding. they were adorable.
I don't think that he can see very well, maybe that's why he ran into the fence. It was so much fun watching them.

We went to Denver on a trip to the Aquarium. I thought it was really fun and cool, and I think that Kasen had a really great time too. Here we are at the beginning with our map. All Kasen wanted to see were the sharks. He kept telling me over and over again that he wanted to go to the sharks, therefore he didn't really see much of anything else as we walked through because of his excitement for the sharks. I kept telling him that he needed to look at all the other cool fish because the sharks were at the very end.
Just playing by the tiger place!
Anther round through the sharks.
Here he is swimming away, I was really fascinated by the whole thing.
Here he was being fed meat that smelled Horrible!
The kids next to the tiger, Heran. He was so cool to watch.
