OK, so when I created this blog it was to help me keep some type of journal and keep in touch with all of our friends that are so far away! So far it has been a weird tribute to different things in life and a tribute to one of the most wonderful men in my life! Well I can say that time has dulled the pain but by no means has it even began to take it away! Today I had to teach the young women and believe it or not it was on change! Man I don't like change! Well I tried to talk myself out of teaching the lesson and going down the road of Christmas but just couldn't! OK really the lesson was for me I learned a ton! The one thing that I found was that the only guarantee in life is that there will always always be change! The other thing I talked about was the children's book about the caterpillar that changes into a butterfly! I read that if we were as the caterpillar willing to submit our lives just like the caterpillar to the lord! He will make us into the beautiful butterfly! I have had hard time with that but at this point I will do what ever the lord wants me to do! I am at his mercy he has helped me with so much! I am not sure that it is fair for me to do this to him!

The other day Dave and I had a discussion about helping others that are in need and giving what we can to lighten there load! Something that my parents are masters at and something that I want to be better at! More along the lines of submitting myself unto the Lord! So at this time of year of Thanksgiving I am so thankful for all things that I have! I love my Husband with all my heart and could have never made it through the last few months without him! I am thankful for my children they are the world to me! They keep me humble and on my toes! I am thankful for the ability I have to live where I do and to have family so close! I am thankful for my mom she has the most amazing strength and when you are with her you feel the spirit really near Thanks mom! With out you who would cut such awesome Christmas Trees and keep me grounded and remind me that the Lord loves us just as much as you and Dad love us! I am also Thankful for having such great parents that have made a most amazing impact on a community! I am thankful to be able to call them mom and dad! Thanks for letting me be your daughter! Thanks to all of you for your love and support! Without all of you I would not make it through each day! Thank you! Thank you! I love you all!

Dave, Thanks for being the most wonderful husband in the world! Sami thanks for being the best you and being my daughter! Jordan thanks for reminding that those who have passed on are never that far away! Hunter thanks for adding a splash of all boy in my life showing me how fun it is to have a great little man in my house!
Love ya all

What A Week!!

Just a quick so you know some of you have heard that my Dad (this is Angie) was in an accident that involved serious head injury! Any way he is doing well the have put in a drain on his brain and it has held his brain pressures at a great pace! He is in ICU and at this point they don't have a plan as to how long! He is doing great in the respect that for critical patient you can say he is stable! I haven't had much sleep so if this is random I am sorry! He has injuries to the head broken C2 vertbre and a broken right temperal bone Sorry for the spelling no sleep and medical terms don't mix. He looks great and is doing great they are starting to take him out of the coma that they put him in and are feeding him trough a tube! It is a wait and see at this point. I will try to keep you posted as I know more! Thanks for all the calls and care and prayers We feel totally loved by our family, friends and also the Lord! I was reading a blog of some friend from dental School and her quote of the day totally hit home! So i am stealling it from her Thanks Tonya!

I found a beautiful quote from Elder Neil A. Maxwell that gave me peace:

“When in situations of stress we wonder if there is any more in us to give, we can be comforted to know that God, who knows our capacity perfectly, placed us here to succeed. No one was foreordained to fail or to be wicked. When we have been weighed and found wanting, let us remember that we were measured before and we were found equal to our tasks; and, therefore, let us continue, but with a more determined discipleship. When we feel overwhelmed, let us recall the assurance that God will not overprogram us; he will not press upon us more than we can bear."

I will try to keep in touch as I know more!
Love Angie
PS. All of my kids went to school for a while today! So I was supposed to be home alone and get stuff done but took my neice and nephew instead someday? But it was a great supprise for Hunter who wasn't sure about school in the first place! Pictures to come

Bath Time WAY To Early In The Day!!

Today Jordan and Hunter were bored and watching TV so I suggested that they get in the tub! I got them out and was talking to my Mom on the phone when I heard water turn on for most this is no big deal but for us currently we have NO GRASS all Dirt we have been working on the Yard all summer! New sprinklers and now new grass welll lets just say we have mud with the least little bit of water. Even the Vet today when I took the dog was concerned about her eyes and that her eye lashes were scratching her eyes. I informed her all we had was dirt for grass and it has only been since then that the problem has surfaced. Then she said if it doesn't get better come in and we will sudate yes put her to sleep to fix it. She is crazy! well back to the kids so here are some photos from just filling water balloons just after the tub! Yes Jordan hasn't even brushed her hair!
