Count Your Many Blessings...

I've been married for almost 2 years now, in April, and I am still learning A LOT! I kind of have a lot on my mind right now. I just read a story about a little girl who wasn't quite 2 and just passed away today. This little girl had been sick from the start. It took them 6 months to figure out that something was wrong with this little girl. She wouldn't sleep, she'd cry every moment she was awake and soon couldn't swallow without choking really bad. This little girl was diagnosed with krabbes disease. She was not expected to live longer than two years old. Her mother wrote in a web journal yesterday saying how she watched her little girl die for the 2nd time. The little girl did not take a breath for almost 10 minutes. They were saying their goodbyes when the little girl started breathing again. But this morning, this little girl passed away. How hard would that be? That really got me thinking about my little girl. I've taken her for granted while going through my depression. It's been so hard for ME to be happy lately and really love my family. But after reading this families story, I've got it easy. How lucky am I to have a sweet caring husband who is there for me when I need him, who loves me NO MATTER what I do and who will stick up for me when someone is rude. (punched a guys car door in because he almost hit me with his car. Pretty funny story) BUT I also have this sweet little baby who needs me to be happy. I guess reading this story made me realize how good I really have it. 

Here's the story if you want to read it too.

Free Day...

Yesterday, Saturday, we kind of had a free day. Not a whole lot to do. So Kendal and I, well more so just I, decided to go take some pictures. Friday I spent the day with my mom scrapbooking and with my dad learning about my camera. It was a lot of fun! My dad figured out some things I had been trying to learn, he then showed me how to do them. I then wanted to hurry and practice so I won't forget them. So yesterday I took time to go and practice. Let me know what you think?? It's easy when I've got such a cute assistant! She's got some pretty silly faces.

Happy New Year!!

For the New Year celebration we went up to Cliff Castle Casino in Camp Verde to see a huge fireworks display. This was actually our 3rd year going there. We got to the casino around 10pm and kind of waited around until midnight. Kendal was actually awake so I though maybe she'd see the fireworks. But she fell asleep 10 minutes before midnight and slept all through the show. After the fireworks we drove to Flagstaff to stay the night and planned on staying and playing in the snow the next day. We bought a big tube to slide down the hills with. We had a blast!! Kendal did too. Here are a lot of pictures of our trip. (I hate typing. Just look at the pictures! haha!) 

Outside our hotel. 
She pulled the icicle off
Tanner was walking back to the car to get Kendal's blanket and fell through the snow!! Kendal was not happy! Pretty funny!!

Tanner got tired of Kendal drove. 
Not really!!
