Well on Thursday afternoon I got a phone call from my mom that I have been trying to prepare my self for, for the last couple of months, I knew it was coming but it is so hard to really prepare yourself, you hope it is all just going to go away. My Grandpa Glenn passed away. He was such an inspiring, amazing, tough, mighty, strong, friendly, loving, joking and family man who has touched so many lives and his example throughout his life will forever be in my heart. A couple of months ago we thought grandpa wasn't going to make it so we made a mad dash down to Arizona to say what we thought were our goodbyes. But I know that through the power of the priesthood and many many answered prayers is why we were blessed with these couple more months. I am so blessed for the knowledge that I do have, that I know I will see my Grandpa again and I know that Grandpa is up in heaven giving my baby last minute advice on how to handle this crazy world!
I am going to miss him so much, miss the pizza hut trips, camping trips, card games, jokes, blowing raspberries, big bear hugs, wondering at a restaurant when the "blue card" is going to come out, the loving advice, the way "the little bird" told him things were coming, Thanksgivings, watching slide shows, the famous " BANG", chopping wood trips, head counts everywhere we went, and the way he loved his family and always showed it. He was such a great example to everyone, he knew no stranger, and the love he showed for Grandma was amazing. He has left many with an inspiration to be better, the way he was. I love you Grandps and I " will see you down the road!!"

Snowman building and sleigh riding!!!


Today daddy got home from work and it wasn't dark yet, so I told Nevada lets go build a snowman, Josh had to go to the farm to cage up some chickens so we decided to go and build him down at the farm. So Nevada and I built a snowman while Daddy, and Grandpa gathered chickens, Kash had no idea what me and Nevada were doing so he fallowed the MEN around!! There wasn't much selection for arms or about anything for our snowman, so we had to be a little creative, we took some rocks out of the chicken pen for our snowman's eyes, nose and mouth. Nevada said " our snowman likes to eat dirt and chicken poop HUH mom?!?!" Then when we got home we sent the kids sleigh riding down the hill in front of the house, Nevada was in 7th heaven and when we put Kash in the sled, he would say " NO, NO, NO, NO " until we pushed them down then he loved it but the anticipation of what was coming he hated!!!!


I can't believe how big they are getting

Me and my ever growing belly!!!
I love him more than anything!!!

Just a few more recent pics, the kids are growing like crazy......

pray for the princesses.........

So as most of you know, Nevada is completely obsessed with the Disney Princesses, she loves all of them, her most favorite though is sleeping beauty. When we talk about the baby coming she says she doesn't want a baby brother cause " I already have one!!!" she wants a sister and her name is Sleeping Beauty, I ask her "what about Bella or Allie?!?!?" "NO MOM, it is sleeping beauty!" So I don' t know what we are going to do about that?! Anyways last night during family prayer, Josh was saying it and Nevada whispered " Dad....." "what Nevada" he answered..... "Don't forget to pray for the princesses dad!" she said! It was so cute it was hard to stay in concentration of what we were doing, and yes of course Josh did pray for the princesses. She is growing up so much. She is so smart, she has quite the little personality!! We love her and it is hard to remember life without our kids we love them both so much!
