We had family night on monday night and Parley actually listened this time. It was so cute, Travis was teaching him about Lehi and his family and going into the wilderness and I had to take pics, Brigham on the other hand isn't too into family night yet, but he still loves when we are all there together. What a great program the church has for us. Even if it only last 10 minutes or so. My parents were so faithful on having FHE and looking back, it is some of my favorite memories that i have with my family.

Brig was content playing on the floor and than we played Pat a cake for our game, he loved it!

mother's day part 2

We had a wonderful mother's day! Travis made me a yummy breakfast, the boys got me some beautiful flowers and a brand new crock pot, YEA! It's a fancy one and i haven't quite figured out how to work it yet but i can't wait to use it. Parley planted some seed in nursery for me and when we were walking out of church, he dumped the cup full of dirt and seeds on Brigham's head! We then had a yummy lunch at the Shupe's and then had a wonderful dinner at Wagstaff's! It was a great day. There is nothing better than being a mom!

Travis wrapped the crock pot in white typing paper and then him and Parley colored all over it and wrote nice things about me, how thoughtful!

Happy Mothers day!!

Happy Mothers day to all you wonderful mothers out there! What a special day! We are so blessed to have the sacred calling of being a mother! I am so grateful that Heavenly Father has trusted me enough to be able to care for these sweet spirits in my little boys, they are such a blessing to me and have taught me so much! i can only hope and pray that there are more to join our family!
To my mom: She is seriously the best mom ever! She has always been there for me, through thick and thin! and i know that even though she is going to be clear across the country for the next 3 years that she will still be there for me. She has taught me so much about everything. She is so amazing with my little boys, and they absolutely adore her. Today i had another quilt a thon for enrichment, and i didn't want to impose on anyone because i know how crazy saturdays can be, but she offered to watch my boys, she showed up at my house at 8:30 am, bathed the boys, and got me off, when i returned home at 2:00, she had picked up my house, did all my laundry, cleaned my microwave, washed a few windows, made all the beds, did the dishes etc. all while watching my 2 boys. She has always gone the extra mile, and i really appreciate it!! Thank you mom for always being there! Thank you for your amazing example and for always teaching me the truth! i am so blessed to have you in my life and thank my heavenly father for you every day! I am really going to miss you while you are gone,but am fully aware of this amazing sacrifice you are doing for our heavenly father and for the people and missionaries of the phillippines, they are going to be so lucky to have you as their missionary mom!! i love you mom, happy mothers day!!
WE are so blessed to be mothers!!

The birthday getaway...

The Zermatt!

Me and my brother Jason! Happy Birtday Jas!

I feel like i haven't posted forever, it has kind of been a crazy week. Anyways last weekend was my birthday, and Travis totally spoiled me. We left the boys friday afternoon and he took me up to the Zermatt Resort and Spa in Midway. It was beautiful. I was pampered with a full body massage, yes it was my first, i was a little hesitant at first, but Travis reassured me that he had requested a girl to be my therapist, so i felt a little better, still a little hesitant about being naked under sheets, but i was ready until my therapist showed up and it was a BOY! I was suddenly very nervous and tense, and boy could he tell. I mentioned that my lower back had been bothering me and he rubbed the heck out of it. i was so sore when i got out and the next day, is that normal? Anyways I did feel better the next night, only 24 hours later, but thats ok, i would love to have another one now, just to compare. After the massage we went swimming and Hot tubbing, oh and i forgot to mention dinner before the massage at an all you can eat buffet!! The hotel room even had choc covered strawberries and a turn down service with rose petals and all. The next day we went and worked out then ordered in room breakfast that was delicious. Then i was pampered again to a 60 minute pedicure and paraffin dip, WONDERFUL!! Then we made a quick stop in park city, shopped for about 20 minutes (that is how long travis lasts, even on my birthday) but i did come away with a cute pair of clamdiggers! then we came home to the boys! Thanks to Heidi, jessie and amy for watching them and for spending the night with them. What a great Birthday! We ended it at our Stake Conference Adult session, that was really good and uplifting! I must say probably one of the best birthdays I have had!! On Sunday my Mom and Dad had me and my brother(who also has a may bday) over for dinner. It was delicious! Thanks mom and dad, my last bday with them for 3 years!! 26 was great, i can't wait to see what 27 brings!!
