Merry Christmas Indeed!

We had an amazing Christmas. Just to be together as a family and be healthy and alive is such a reason to celebrate these holidays. I just returned from a friend's baby shower who received the ultimate gift this Christmas. She was blessed with a baby. Like me this sweet girl has been literally through the ringer when it comes to trying to be a mother. After failed fertility treatments she and her spouse decided to try to adopt. She found a baby boy on her agency's website and just felt that this little boy was supposed to be hers. The birth mother was uncertain because they were LDS and decided to go with another couple. Well my friends grandma passed away this past week and before she died my friend asked her to help her get a baby here fast, well after her grandmothers funeral and en route to the burial, she had a strong desire come over her to contact the agency. When she called them, the birth mother had called at the same time and said I changed my mind, I want the LDS couple. Well that was on Monday.. baby boy was born Wednesday and is now home with my friend, an amazing sweet girl with a special husband and they are just over the moon and so thankful and amazed and just gracious.
When I was at her shower tonight I just could feel the spirit so strong and kept getting choked up with emotion, just understanding that God did have a plan for this special little family and that our family members who have passed do have a hand it what happens to us here on earth. Having said all this.. it just takes me back so much to what happened with us last year at this same time. When we got Roman we were just so grateful and in shock that you almost can not even think straight. Talk about the best Christmas present ever. Also at this shower was my sweet cousin Sandy who's little boy Jett passed away in August. He like our Brittan was not of this world. Spending time with Sandy reminds me to be grateful that we have the gospel in our lives, reminds me to never forget that there is ALWAYS someone who understands your pain, and never forget that terrible, sad things happen to the best people sometimes. This holiday season.. I am counting my many blessings!

Slighty Pissed about the Flu Shot!

Okay, so I do my good motherly deed and get myself, my husband and my child the Flu shot. Well it pretty much was the biggest waste of money ever because we have all had the "Death Flu" since Sunday. UGHGHGHGH!! I named it the "Death Flu" because I would rather DIE than live another day with this awful flu. We are all getting better and I HAVE got to go to work tomorrow, not to mention a wedding.
How disturbing is it though that I think i am protecting my family and spend my hard earned money to get a flu shot and we still get sick. Leave it to me to be in contact with someone who would pick up some mutant version of the flu that does not have a vaccine yet. UGH.

Seeing that I am a new mother, we have exactly 3 child dvd's in my house.
1. The Backyardigans "Super Secret Agent" 2. Wonder Pets 3. Lady and the Tramp.
Needless to say since we have been sick I have seen each of these way to many times and the little characters that I used to think were so adorable are SO ANNOYING.
Well besides Lady that is. If any of you are somewhat familar with the Backyardigans.. what type of animals are Austin and Uniqua?
Hoping for a flu cure...

Today is the day!

Well today is the day I start a blog. Thanks to my lovely neighbor Miss Jessica Rawson I have decided to get with the program and also start a blog since I have been meaning to for ages!

Roman is walking.. defiantly not okay! Such a crazy man! He learned how to open drawers and smashed his finger for the first time yesterday. Superly dramatic! For me that is. :) He went to the Zoo yesterday with sitter/friend/neighbor Sarah Hickens and kids as well as neighbor/friend Amy Grant.

On to a major issue that has totally affected my day. We went to clean the church this morning since my dad is in charge of the building maintenance. We got there and our building had been vandalized. It was so disturbing to me that someone would come to our building and trash it and not even care. I mean come on, do teenagers these days not have any respect at all!! I know I did some stupid things growing up but I never vandalized anybody else's property, let alone a church, I mean get serious, God is defiantly going to see that on. Lucky the idiot who decided to do it left his PANTS (i know, right!!!what did her wear home) on the stage with his wallet and ipod in them. The Kaysville Police are after you now!! HEHEHE what a dork!
