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!

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!

Claire & Bre's Job- Christmas Ad

The girls were all picked to do a spot for for Christmas. But when we got there they realized Syd and Bre were twins and didn't want to use both of them. Syd didn't mind since she got to play the kindle and eat treats!

Night with Claire

Claire and I had callbacks for a tv show in Provo so we got to spend some time together. She loved getting dinner and a treat, I loved listening to her talk all the way there and back. Love this girl!

Women's Conference 2016

Took the girls to women's conference. It was Claire's first time and it was not easy for her. But at least she tried. We grabbed dinner afert and then headed to SL to see the Lunt's who were in town for Beth's race. It was a fun night!

Birthday Tables for the Twins

Syd and Bre had their first birthday tables at school. They requested In n Out and for grandpa to come. I'd say they were pretty happy! Claire happen to be coming to lunch as we were leaving and she was able to give grandpa a big hug.

Amy- Hallmark Movie

I got a small part as a featured extra (the secretary) in a Hallmark Christmas movie.It was fun to say I was in a movie but I like the local stuff better. Working with all the LA people wasn't really fun.

Birthday Happenings for the twins

Syd and Bre were so excited for their birthday! They had both talked about it for weeks! They woke up to presents and breakfast in bed (but they decided to eat on breakfast tables on the floor). A few days later there was a party- complete with a bounce house, face painting, popcorn machine, twister and sidewalk chalk. And of course Linda Sumsion brought them a cake that they got to design. They were thrilled!
Grandma and grandpa also came to wish them a happy birthday and bring a few presents!
They had a great time!

Dear Breanna

Dear Breanna,

Hooray! You're turning 7! I can't believe it! You're the youngest of the family, but dad and I always say you're the most mature. Even more mature than us.

I love your love of science and math. Just last year during your movie you did for the church, you bew everyone away because even through you were in kindergarten and couldn't read all the way, you could still memorize all the lines.

It was because you are so diligent and smart. You take your time and are very cautious. You always seem to make good choices because you think everything through.

You're a great helper to everyone in our family! I don't know what we'd do without you!

Have a wonderful birthday!

We love you!


Mom & Dad

Dear Sydney

Dear Sydney,

Oh what a sweet girl you are! You have so many amazing qualities. You're a great reader and a great friend to everyone you meet. I love how much you love school and love learning.

One of my favorite things about you is that you never want anyone to go without. Even if one of your sisters has done something to you and should get in trouble, you always say you don't want them to. You have such sweet tender spirit and I love it!

I hope you have a wonderful birthday! You make life so much fun! I love the way you interact with Bre and how much you love her.

Have a fantastic birthday!

We love you!

Labor Day 2016

One last day at the lake with friends! It was a little colder than we'd all like but it was still fun. Claire is the most fun on the wave runners. She giggles and has so much fun!
We had a great time with the Sorenson's!

Family Pictures 2016

It was a rough start getting up and being ready to start taking family pictures at 8:30am on a Saturday. But it was well worth it considering how amazing they turned out!
