Spring Break 2017

Last year for Spring Break we were in California. This year was pretty laid back. Bella was with Kenny most of the time and we stayed home. It was actually pretty nice and relaxing. We slept in, watched tv, cleaned, went to a movie went bowling, played with friends and overall just had a good time. Seth was able to come home during the day sometimes and go to the movie and bowling with us which was great!
I told the girls I loved being with them and having them home all day. It was really fun- but I think we'll all be ready for school to start and to get back to regular life again on Monday.

Grandpa and Grandma in Sweden

My dad and Jan left to work in the temple for 6 months, this morning. Last night we had a family dinner and then today me and the twins took them to the airport. It was sad to see them go and Bre said as we pulled away "I miss them already". but we know they'll be back soon and we'll get to see them in 2 months. I was able to find a pretty good deal on flight and I've booked a lots of acting and modeling jobs lately so that has helped.

Wonderful Sunday

Today was a great Sunday. Church like normal, I took a nice nap and Seth and the girls went on a walk, dinner then another walk ending up talking t friends followed by reading a book to the girls in our bed. The only thing that would have been better would be if Bella was here.
I just feel so thankful to be a mom and cherish every day I have with the girls.
I love my family so much!

School Musical 2017

This year all the girls were in the school musical Seussical Jr. Bella was a bird girl and the other three were who's. They had a blast and it was so fun watching them all be in a play together! I was thankful I could help with the behind the scenes stuff and get to know their friends too.

Happy Birthday!

I was sick the day before my birthday and tried my best to be well on my birthday. But my body wasn't having it. I paid the price for trying to be up and around all day and the spent the next few days in bed. But it was a good day. I had lunch with Marianne, Chelsie, Amber, and Lisa. we haven't done anything together in months so that was fun. I had visits from friends and calls all day and then that night we all went to Claire's Jr Jazz game. Oh and the Sumsions brought me dinner. Which was such a blessing! Seth and I went to dinner a few days later and to a bakery I had been wanting to try but I was so sick he had to run into Walgreens and get me medicine on the way home so I never really got to enjoy my dessert.

BYU Commercial

I can't believe of all the commercials I could- I booked one for the BYU bookstore. And to add to the craziness- they couldn't find an Indian husband or son and asked if Bella and Claire could be in the shoot with me and Claire. They were both excited to earn a little money and since we knew there would probably never be another time when we would wear BYU shirts we decided to get a picture. This was the first part and we will film again in May.

Happy Valentines Day 2017

Seth wrote me and the girls valentines letters again this year. I say it every year- but this is the best present we could ever get. Even if they don't appreciate it yet.

Snowed In

Seth took a weekend job as a driver for Sundance to earn some extra money. So we had a sleepover in mom's bed. Then in the morning we stayed in bed watching tv all morning while it snowed. Syd and I finally went outside around lunch time to start shoveling. It was a fun weekend, but we missed dad.

Twin Stuff

The twins set up all their stuffed animals outside their door before bed. It was so cute! I love how they think.
Then they wore matching outfits from Alden and Laura Lee to school the next day.

Amy- SLCC


I booked a fun job as a welding student at Salt Lake Community College. That was defiantly something I've never done before and probably never will again. I even had a stunt double since I don't know how to weld they didn't want me getting hurt.
It was a lot of fun!

Amy- Dentrix job

I booked a fun job as a receptionist at a dental office. It went so well they said they would like to hire me again! And they did a week later. But the make up artist for the day did a terrible job.  I still had a fun time and they said they will let me know when they are ready to film their training video that they want me to be a part of! Yeah!

Claire's Birthday Celbration

She woke up first thing and had presents and presents and breakfast in bed. She requested a pancake as big as the plate which was what she got! 
Sweet Linda Sumsion made her a cake fit for a chocolate factory which was perfect for her birthday at Mrs Cavanghas Chocolate.
The party included a tour of the factory, making their own chocolates, games, picking out ice cream and picking out a treat. It was a great sugar rush of a party.

Dear Claire

Dear Claire,

We've had a great day today. You woke up and had breakfast (a pancake as big as the plate) and presents in bed. 
At school I brought you a Jamba Juice and your teacher let you pick the song for Go Noodle.
For dinner we had meatloaf, mashed potatoes and vegtables- all your choice.
Then grandpa and grandma came over for cake and to give you a present.
I'd say it was a good day!
But I think my favorite was when dad and I kissed you good night and read the letter I found about a mother who's daughter is turning 9.
It said everything I felt. 
You've accomplished a lot in your first 9 years and the next will be even better.
We love you! Words can not express that enough!
We're proud of you! And you bring us so much joy!
Never change!
Love,
Mom & Dad

My thoughts of Claire Bear

Tonight I laid with Claire in her bed until she fell asleep. It was wonderful! I just love her so much. I said a silent prayer as she held my hand in the darkness that I will know how to be the best mom for her. I want her to grow up knowing I did everything I could for her. As challenging as she can be I wouldn't want her any other way.

Dear Bella

Dear Bella,

I can't help but think of where I was when you were born every time your birthday rolls around. I was so scared and felt alone, but having you made me feel like there was hope and purpose in life.

I've loved watching you grow. You're now going into young womens and I'm so proud of you! You are such a great example to your younger sisters. And you're and example to me and dad.

When I found out you went to church alone in the Salt Lake ward I was sad, and scared for you, but also so proud that you would chose to go. I love the light in your eyes! You have such a strong testimony! I know your Heavenly Father loves you just like we do!

I can't wait to see what this year brings!

I love being your mom!

Love,

Mom

Proud of Bella & Claire

Tonight as I was tucking Claire in she told me how she was scared the other night when I went on a girls night with my friends. She was scared I got in a car accident and she cried. BUt then she decided t read her scriptures and say a prayer. She apparently said 5 because she was so scared.
I was so proud of her that her first thought was to read her scriptures and say a prayer. 
That made me so happy!
Also tonight I got a text from Bella's Salt Lake ward with a picture of Bella at YW. They kidnapped her from activity days and took her to YW. I could tell by her face she loved it.
What a blessing that she has such great leaders there and here who love her and teach the gospel to her.
I love my girls so much!!

Time Out For Girls

Bella and I went to Time Out For Girls and had a great time. It was so much to spend time with just her and be uplifted. Some of the talks were over her head. BUt some were just what I think she needed to hear. Plus Mercy River sang and we went and talked to Soni which she liked. PLus we went out to eat and saw Sally during the lunch break on Saturday.
It was such a fun weekend.

Night with the twins

Tonight Bella was with Kenny, Claire and Seth went to a Jazz game with her Jr Jazz team so it was just me and the twins. We went to a movie they've really wanted to see, Trolls. Then came home, read books in my bed and they fell asleep.
Oh I love being their mom! They make me so happy. I hope they know how much I love them!
