Gotta love Austin....

Grandpa Jed is in town working with Brett on our railings (pics soon to follow). Last night the guys took a break to go to dinner with us at our favorite Italian restaurant. Towards the end of dinner Austin got a little restless and bored and decided to entertain himself and everyone around us by running circles around the table. At one point he stopped and came up to Grandpa and said...

"Grandpa, does it to stink to not have kids?!" To which Grandpa replied (quite convincingly I might add) "Yes it does"

Daily battles

Brett made this video for me and it really sums up my daily battles with Autin. Austin and I watched it together and we were both laughing, then Austin said "that doesn't sound like us!"

Cameron's Baptism

I guess that I am just a little behind on blogging. Cameron turned 8 this year and was baptized a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints on Oct. 9, 2010. Here are some pics of his special day.

Cameron and Brett.

I didn't get a picture of them in their whites, but this was taken just before the baptism. We are so grateful that Dad holds the priesthood and was able to baptize Cameron.

Our family and friends who came to share this special day with us.

It is a pretty wonderful experience for a mother to witness her child accept the invitation to be baptized. I am so grateful for the gospel in my life and I am grateful that my children have the opportunity to take this important step in returning to our Heavenly Father and then to receive the gift of the Holy Ghost. It was a really special day. Cameron, Dad and I are very proud of you! We hope that you will always remember the special, warm feelings that you felt today and strive each day to keep the covenants that you made. We love you lots!


We were truly blessed when a wonderful family in our ward gave us their piano that they no longer wanted. It has been such a joy having this instrument in our home. I have wanted a piano for years and years, and now that we have one, we are using it and enjoying it. I have started giving the boys piano lessons. Here is Austin practicing his first song.
