Dam to Dam

Well I thought that this picture was so cute SO I just had to show it this girl loves bathtime. Today I took her clothes off and her diaper and turned around to get her water ready, when I turned around to pick her up low and behold their was a puddle around her feet and she was laughing.

This was her first
hair cut! I just trimmed the back and round brushed it. It makes her look so old. The little stinker.

This was the
Dam to Dam race. With me and my sisters and Sister in law Steph. We had so much fun. A couple of us were race bandits but hey it was still fun. I was so sick that day with the worst cough and cold ever but I made it to the finish line- Even though Im paying for it now.

Here is another picture of this little fart. She loves to climb in drawers and is always taking everything out of them. Everyroom I go in she has taken something out of each and every drawer. But she is so cute doing it that I just cant be mad

Well This really has been a crappy week. All my kids have been sick and now Ive got the cold, cough,
sorethroat, . And to top that off one of my best friends mom just passed away. Most of you know keturah and that her mom Sheila passed away this week. It is so hard. Life really isnt fun that much and the trials we have to go through really are hard in this life. Keturah and I go to the temple once a month and we have went every month for 3 years now. ( She has helped me get there when before that I was only going once in a while) Plus we just have to stop and have lunch to make it worth our while. SO It has been really a hard to watch a friend have to go through what Trevor and I have went through with his mom. I found this poem and It really touched my heart.

"For each of us there is a journey,
a long road-
a time of trouble and pain,
a moment of sunshine and joy.
No one else knows the path,
for no one else has traveled there before.
We walk alone; courage our only companion.
We may travel in Darkness
or we may travel in light
it is our choice.
But meeting Christ
is the final destination of our soul!

Please pray for Keturah and her family, I know that they could use a lot of prayers right now. When something like this happens to you, you really realize why the Lord says in the scriptures to "Mourn with those that Mourn. Because we need all the help we can get in this life. Thank you to all my blogging friends and even those friends who I do occationally blog stalk. You inspire me everyday to do just a little bit better. Even through your trials and daily struggles I learn a lot. Thanks for keeping me going and striving to do better!
