September 15th

September 15th marked my parents 35th Wedding anniversary!!! Congratulations!!! I am so greatful for you guys and all the sacrifices that you have made for us girls growing up and now for us and our families. You guys do so much for us and we really appreciate having you so close. You have much such great examples for us. Thanks for loving each other and of course....bringing us into the world!!!

We took them to Maggiano's to help them celebrate.

Also on the 15th was Cason's Grandma Denis' birthday. So we took some flowers and a balloon to her graveside. I got the idea from a friend to do a crayon rubbing over her headstone. It was pretty neat because we got to talk to Ella about Grandma Denis and tell her some stories we remember.

My Birthday!!!

Last Tuesday was my birthday and I got the best wake up ever! At 4:30 Cason wakes me up by saying, "Happy Birthday! We're going to Disneyland!" It was great. He got my Aunt Peggy, Carli, and my mom to come and watch our kids throughout the day. Disneyland was the best. It's been a very long time since the both of us had been there and we still hadn't seen California Adventure! It was the perfect day. Unfortunately, I lost my camera on one of the rides and it has yet to be found...(don't worry I call the lost and found like everyday). So although you can't see my permagrin that I had all day...youll just have to imagine it...Luckily, I got a new one from my parents for my birthday! a coincidence?
Then on Sunday, my family did a dinner over at my mom's house and ate birthday cake!!! Here are those pictures!!!

So I would say my life has made a complete turn around. It's almost scary how it takes a possible life event to make you feel totally greatful and content with what you have. 2 weeks ago, we were driving to California to go to one of my old roomate's wedding and get a phone call from my mom. She says, "No need to panic..." of course I panic. My dad had to go into surgery for his elbow that seemed infected. Needless to say it turned into a week long stay at St. Rose Hospital, 2 surgeries, 35 stints in his arm, and 4 different kinds of antibiotics. He ended up having a staff (not sure if that's how you spell it medically) infection that became very serious very fast. What a blessing it was to have him come home last Sunday. Our family truly has been blessed by so many people who prayed in my dad's behalf. He felt such an abudance of love and support. I have such a testimony for prayer and especially for the power of the priesthood. Thank you, Thank You, andThank You again!!!

I love my daddy-o!!! Here is one of the times he had to be spoon fed! I wish we could have gotten a picture of my mom doing "Bulls-eye" with him!!!
