Gram turns 100!

On June 21st, Collin's great grandmother turned 100! We were so luck y to be able to celebrate the day with all of his family. He had family come in from all over, California, Arizona, England and even Japan. We had a blast just visiting with each other and listening to Gram tell stories about her childhood, raising her children and the best part "we all need to do this again next year!" She is such a cute and loving lady. Noah was so excited to have chance to play with his cousins. Dustin and Deegan came in from Prescott Valley, Jack from San Diego and he got to meet his cousin Chase and spend time with one of his favorite cousins Brooke who lives here in town but we don't get to see a whole lot. I also enjoyed meeting and visiting with some of his family that I had never met before including his second cousin Rachel. Rachel also just had a baby boy, born a couple of days after Nicklaus and it is always so nice to be able to visit with other new mom's. Rachel is a first time mom, so it was nice to be able to give her some tips and encouragement. I can't wait to visit and get to know her better. I am very blessed to be apart of such a wonderful family. Happy Birthday Gram! I can't wait to celebrate your 101 birthday with you next year!

Nicklaus Blessing

This last sunday Collin had the opportunity to bless Nicklaus in church. It is always amazing to me to watch my husband use his priesthood. I am so thankful that I have a husband who can and is willing to share those blessings with my family. My parents, sister Mel and nephew Taylor were able to come down from Las Vegas to share that special day. As well as my grandparents from Utah. That alone is a big deal because of all their health issues I know it was(is) not an easy trip to make. Collin's family (who are not members of our church) joined us at our meeting to watch and share with us. I know it is not always easy for them to participate in our church activities but I love them for supporting us and our boys.

Busy Busy Busy

We have been so busy lately in my house. I can't believe how much more is going on by having two babies rather than just one. Nickalus although as little as he is takes up much of my day, just by feeding, holding and taking care of. I forgot how much work an infant is! But I am loving every minute of it! Nicklaus is now smiling and starting to giggle when you talk to him. And today he got to go in the bouncer. He was so excited to be able to sit up and see what was going on around him. And this also helped Noah be able to interact with Nicklaus more also. Noah went around talking and playing with the little toys attached.

Also recently I have decided to become a scentsy consultant. And for those of you who are saying "huh??" Scentsy is a wickless candle. You have a warmer that heats up wax releasing your desired scent. The thing that makes this so different than other similar products is that no flame is involved. The warmer uses a low voltage light bulb so the wax NEVER goes above body temperature and therefore doesn't burn you (or your kids) if you decide to play with the wax. Its flameless, sootless, leadless and wickless. If you want to know more you can visit my site at or give me a call!

And i finally got my towels for tots site up and running too! So now you don't have to ask what i have you can see and buy on-line!
and as always you can always custom order one as well.

Collin is busy with his Attorney4Hire stuff and is now actively pursuing his golfing career. He is playing in a Prescott Golf Tournament next week that will hopefully qualify his for the amateur arizona golf tournament.
