Dear Bella on the night before 7th grade

I can't believe you are starting Jr high!!
I have been so worried and nervous for you for the past few month. Worried about friends, school work, friends, who you'll eat with at lunch, will people like you, will you do okay in school? And then dad gave you a blessing tonight and I was reminded of what an amazing girl you are. You have been so great with reading your scriptures, writing in your journal and making friends. You've been great at that since you were little really. Always including others and being a peaceful non judgmental friend. 
I know you may not always remember the things dad said in his blessing. But I hope you'll remember the way you felt and that you got up gave him a hug and wouldn't let go. That was the spirit touching you that the words dad said were true and that he loves you so much.
We both do!
I feel so blessed to be your mom.

I know it will be a great year and I have no doubt you'll do a great job!

Career Day

Claire put a lot of thought into career day this year. She really wanted to go as president of the United States. Bella helped her with her outfit but everything else was her own idea. She'd be great because she has the drive, determination and loves power and control. 
Oh we love her!

Claire's job at the Homeless Shelter

Claire booked a job for a company who makes lice removal products and donates them to homeless shelters. It wasn't actually filmed at a homeless shelter. It was filmed at Brighton ski resort lodge. She did a great job as always! And I loved having time alone with her. We went to Noodles & Co after.

Sleeping On The Tramp

The girls begged me to sleep on the tramp with them so since Seth had a scout camp over nighter I said it was a good time. We had a great time but missed dad and Bella.

Spring Sports

Bella has been back at golf lessons and the twins have loved soccer. For some reason I only got pictures of Bre and not Syd. But they both did a great job all season.

Amy Practitioner job

I booked a fun job working with Gavin Bentley again. This was fun because we filmed on a farm. The last time he hired me it was for SLCC. It was fun! I always enjoy doing things I would normally never get the chance to do- like work on a farm.

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.

Amy Zions Bank Commercial

I booked a fun job for Zion's bank. When I auditioned I was the only one there, so I kind of figured I got it because no one auditioned. But after speaking to some people on set I learned there were actually a lot of people who tried out so it was a big deal that I beat so many people out for it. So that was good. And I got to work with Scott Featherstone which is always fun and pays well.

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.
