I am so happy that the stockings have been hung...then filled...then emptied...and now we can rest!!! I feel exhausted!! The rushing around this time of year really does me in. This year I feel like Christmas came so fast that I hardly got a chance to enjoy it. This next few days until school starts back up I am going to try to relax and do some reading (Eclipse) and enjoy what is left of the Christmas holiday!!! But I do hope that all of yours was wonderful!!!

What an exciting Birthday!! McKennah turns 12 today!! I love her so much and am so lucky to be her Mom. She will now be saying goodbye to Primary, which is sad for me. It means she is growing up (& way too fast). She will now be going with her big sister to Young Womens.
Happy Birthday Kennah!!

Sweet Baby Boy!!

Fun With Braedon

I said a while ago that I would post an update about Braedon's progress. I know it is late but here it is. He did go in to be tested for Cerebral Palsy...and it came back that he did have it, but it is mild. I knew that he would have some. How could he not with the severity of the brain injury from when he was born. Mild is good, and I don't imagine that it will change any as he gets older. It seems to be mostly in his legs, but I am sure we will notice small things later as he gets older. He seems to be coming along great. He still is not walking on his own. He does have a walker and can use it, but someone has to hold it while he is using it because walkers have no brakes! He has been fitted for his leg braces, we will see how he does with them when he starts using them. He also is crawling now. Before it was more of a scoot with his legs being pulled behind him. Now he puts his legs under him and is using his knees to move forward...yea for him!!! He is talking a little bit more although it is hard to discern and you have to listen hard for some of the words...but they are there. I have to say I am so happy to post all of this good news...Hooray for Braedon!!

P.S. If you click on Jesse's picture on the sidebar it will take you to his story. I am working on posting Braedon's story as well. I will also be posting a fun page for each of the may take a while but I WILL get it done ; )

Festival Of Trees

Christmas Spirit!!

On Friday McKennah danced at the Festival of Trees at the South Town Center. It was so much fun for the girls. It helps us to get into the Christmas Spirit. Of course we have to stop by the Sweet Shoppe and buy a few yummy things. I remember last year when we went we seen Angie Larsen from GTU there on a date night.
After we left we went to the South Town Mall...and then to the District shopping center in South Jordan and ate at the Chick-fil-a there.

And A Fun Party!

Saturday Steve and I had a christmas party to go to in Evanston, WY at the President of the AKKI's home. His home was so amazing. It was completely decorated everywhere and had 4 huge christmas trees. They had just built on and remodeled their home. It was all done with kinda a rustic feel. They had amazing wood floors, beamed ceilings and huge chandeliers. Outside they had built their own mountain range. They had tons and tons of dirt and rock brought in and built this huge thing and Saturday it had light snow on it and about 300 trees and about 30 light up deer on it. It was absolutely amazing to look at...I sure wished I had gotten some pictures!!!

Another Happy Birthday!!!
