About Me

My photo
We both grew up in Montana, and after high school we even lived in the same town, but did not meet until Kevin returned from his mission. Kevin served in the South American Mission of Asuncion Paraguay and upon is return in 2001, we were introduced by none other than his match making sister, Janna. We have been married for 8 years. We have four children. Our oldest son, Carson is 8, Rosario (Rosie) is 4, Olivia is two and Benson is 6 months.

Birthday Girl

Olivia turned one on August 26th. We celebrated quietly at home, we did not have a 5 foot tall cake or fireworks just her siblings, mom and dad, a home made cake and a few gifts. It's a good thing we did not go out somewhere on the town to celebrate because she was not feeling great, she was fussy from a 6th tooth and getting over a cold.
I can't believe that I had her a year ago. Oh Boy! The first year just goes so quickly. I love to be her mom. She's a good little girl and makes me laugh each day. She loves to flip through books, play in the spice rack on the kitchen floor and sit outside in the grass and watch the birds. She puts up with her older siblings picking her up and moving her away from whatever they're building so she doesn't knock it over, she gently folds her hands during family prayer and generally wakes up very happy. So much of her reminds me of each of my other children, but she's so uniquely Olivia.
Happy first birthday Liv!

When Kevin's dad was set apart to be Mission President of the Colorado Colorado Springs Mission the family went to Salt Lake City for the weekend. It was a great experience, and hopefully the kids will remember meeting an apostle of the Lord. I don't know when this many of us will be together for a picture so I'm keeping it on my blog until his folks return.
