What makes a "Make a Wish" trip to disneyworld
better then anyother?
A fast pass to everything.
The kids saw all the fun charcters
we stood in line to see Pooh and Tigger
for like 40 mintues only to find
out we need to only flash the pass!
Well never a line did we stand in again.
Give Kids the World!
Wow what a place that was.
Check it out.
I think we all had a grand time.
I rode all the roller costers with the
older kids..
Watching Bryson face light up
around every corner was priceless!
I have a ton of pictures.

Essay about me!

Chase had to write an essay about his favorite person and he picked me!
I love all my kiddos. They bring me such joy !
I was honored to be chosen as his favorite person.
My Favorite Person

My favorite person that I am going to write about today is my aunt. Me and my sisters call her Annie. Her real name is Beth. She has brown eyes and also brown hair.I picked my aunt because she has 12 nieces and nephews. I am the 4th oldest out of the 12. My aunt is so amazing because she loves each and every one of us. She will fly across the states just to see the ones who live far way. I am so lucky that she only lives 5 minutes away. She lives in Clearfield and works in Salt Lake City. She is an office manger for a group of doctors at the U of U Hospital. My aunt is one of the most amazing people ever, and I love her. She comes and watches all my football games. I can hear her yelling on the sidelines. She makes me special. She also has a really good sense of humor and we laugh at each others jokes. I am so lucky she is in my life.
NO! I am very lucky he is in my life!!!

Bryson Gets his Wish

Make a Wish gave Bryson and his family
a trip to Disney World.
And I was lucky enough to get join in the fun!
Before the big trip Make a Wish
gave him a little pizza party.
When they got home that night he was ready to leave.
Poor guy had to wait another 4 days

Christmas 2009

As sad as it is, I took no pictures this Christmas..
Jennifer and family flew in from Denver
Eric and family came down for Christmas Eve.
So we had at least one day that most of us were together.
Christmas seems to be the hardest time.
Mom love Christmas and had everything decked out
and she cooked up a storm.
It took everything I had to put up my tree.
Good thing my friend Yvonne was in town and
helped with that project.
I miss my parents everyday but Christmas time
seems to be the worse for me.
I am grateful for my siblings that take great care of me.
I am grateful for all my nieces and nephews that bring me such joy.
I am most grateful for the knowledge I have that
I will see my parents again.

Thanksgiving in Ohio

Little Eviee.
Isaac is a hoot.

We went to the Children's Museum and ran
into Mr and Mrs Clause

Elana and Eliza.

David and Eliza
Baptism day.

The Jones Family.
So I flew to Ohio for Thanksgiving and
Eliza's Baptism.
It was great to see Sara and her family.
It had been much to long.

Oh Scotty!

Scott had a quadruple bypass right before
He had stents placed several times in the last year
and they were just not helping.
So the decided surgery was the way to go.
It was a tough day sitting in the waiting room.
Something our family knows a little to much about.
But we knew that he had some speical Angels watching over him
And alot of family and friends praying for him.
I thank everyone for those answered prayers!
Scott is doing well and getting back into
his regular routine.

One more Trip to Bishop!

My trip to Bishop this time was to see the fabulous Bedwell family.
Their father passed away few years ago and they came back
to Bishop to bury his ahes.
I was glad that I was able to make the trip and visit
with them.
The view at the football game. Not sure there is a
better one anywhere.

Chuck Bedwell and Todd Thornburg.
Chuckie and me.

Always a plus to see Tawni when I am home.
I am go grateful for all my trips "home" this year.
I think it has helped me heal . To see old
friends after so many years has been
