Yes it's that time again folks and we are SO EXCITED!!!! 

11 months!

I can't even keep up with how fast she is growing...time just seems to be moving faster and faster in the world today. I love this little girl so much, and I honestly can't imagine life without her. She is still not walking and still scooting around. In fact, she has pretty much perfected that little scoot. She is still getting into everything and anything she can. In the mornings when we go get her out of her crib we have to make sure we put her blanket on our shoulder and then pick her up. She is so snugly when you get her out of bed in the mornings or from her naps. She takes a morning nap and an afternoon nap that I am forever grateful for! She loves to go on a walk to the park and swing for a bit. She absolutely adores her dad and gets so excited when he comes home and cries if he leaves to go outside. I'm so happy that I'm able to stay home with this little scoot!

Never Forget

10 years ago today I was getting ready to go to school in the 7th grade. I almost wish I would have been more mature to have really understood what was going on as I was watching the news that morning with my mom in her bedroom. I remember she started crying and I felt so confused but at the same time just had this feeling in me that something was really wrong. I went to school and went to my swing choir class and Mr. Evans was crying too, but they weren't allowing us to watch the news. Garett was a sophmore in High School and his experience was different because he was older and understood more of the reality and the change that this was going to have over our country. He said that that day his history teacher turned on the tv and said "Shut up, Listen and watch....this is History."
I'm thankful for all those in law enforcement or that put themselves in harms way everyday to protect us and our country. I am will always be proud of my dad serving on the Springville fire department and the Springville Police department. He is my Hero, along with all those that risked their lives 10 years ago on 9 11
