My Favorite Time of Year

The middle of May is my favorite time of year. School is out, it's finally warm outside, and I get to spend a lot of time with family. This year is especially nice because little Kimball is a month old.
The first "Family Holiday" we get to celebrate is the anniversary of when Spence, Aliah, and I got sealed.
Now I get to have these lovelies forever!
Next we celebrate Mothers Day. These are the best Mothers Day flowers I've ever gotten!
Aliah also gave me these awesome coupons.
Our last Family Holiday is the anniversary is the when my Mom died. I'm so grateful for her. You know after she was diagnosed with cancer people would often ask her if she thought she was going to die, she would always tell them, No, I have to raise my children. I can't die till Kelsey graduates from high school. That seemed like a long shot because I was only 4 years old. But she had the most perfect faith of anyone I've ever known and she did just that. She died the very week I graduated. There is no better example of faith and prayer in my life. What a wonderful legacy she left!

Three Weeks

My little buddy is three weeks old now.
Here are a bunch of pictures of us lately.

Did any of you watch your baby boy get circumcised, or am I the only one that morbid? Look at that little torture chamber! So sad!
Most of Kimball's life has been spent in this bili bed. Something weird was going on and his jaundice got worse and worse because of his nursing. Breastmilk jaundice they call it. Who knew?

The girls have been wanting to sleep together, so rather then get Inara out of her crib we just put Aliah in. They think it's great fun.

Blankets and thumbs. What more could a little girl want?
