For those of you who have a space between your fridge and your wall you MUST have one of these it is AMAZING!!!! I now have a tall skinny pantry that is hidden at all times. LOVE MY HUSBAND

Little man needs a sibling

My challenge lately has been keeping this little man happy about being an only child! At times it makes me sad how bad he want another sibling so until that happens pappy will just have to do! Hunter drags poor pappy all over our house all day ever day! He dresses him up, he shoots at him, he plays hiding games with him and he cuddles with him. I am so thankful that Pappy lets hunter mall him and never seems put out by him! We have a wonderful life and our animals sure help out with that!!!!

A cherished memory

Today 6 years ago this very ambulance transported my sweet little Hudson to a hospital that was better equipped to take care of his every need. I was unaware at this moment in time that I would be without this sweet little boy in the very near future! As each year passes I fear that I am forgetting the memory of my beautiful angel baby! I only had him for 19 days but in the time I was able to see him look at me every time I came into the room! This memory is one that I hold onto very tight. One of his many Dr.'s said, "he only seems to wake when you and your husband are around." I know he knew I was there! I longed for the chance to hold him in my arms but I ached when that time came far sooner than I had hoped and for not as long as I would have liked it to be. I pray I never forget the love that many showed to us and him. This picture is a picture that reminds me of that love, these ambulance drivers worked so fast to get our little boy the care that he was so desperate for. And today I am grateful to reflect on this memory that I will forever cherish.

Darth Hunter

So not to long ago I set a goal to find Hunter a costume that he would LOVE! I asked him what he wanted to be and he said, "mom, I would like to be something from Star Wars or and Angry Bird." Ok then easy enough right? Well luckily I am one patient mother because I decided to go to the Goodwill for some good old inspiration and cheap finds! Needless to say after 1 hour of finding nothing to do with Star Wars or Angry Birds I decided to get a little more creative. I STARTED OVER!!!! I got lucky though because I found the bottom potion of this costume and from there I knew it was an uphill climb. We looked for yet another hour only to find the cape that went with it. It was at this moment in time I realized that I might just have to give in and say I had lost the battle. I looked at Hunter and said, "ok buddy we will look for the Darth Vador helmet for 5 more minutes and then if we can't find it we are headed home." He was totally fine with that as he tends to be a rather easy child in that department. As I was just about to give up I realized I had not yet gone through the electronics isle.. As we did WHALLAAAAAAAAAAAAA!!!!!! There it was Darth Vador's helmet in it's finest. Better yet the entire outfit only cost me 2.00!!!!!! Here it is people my little Darth Hunter!!!

We were able to spend a whole afternoon with a couple of our friends and their families and go to Greenbluff! I was amazed at how beautiful it is and I found out rather fast that I wanted to one day own a barn that looked just like this one! Just had to share

Always remember

Hunter asked me about this statue that I have up today and so I told him all about September 11th. And this is what he said back to me, "mom if there were bad people in America that hurt a lot of people did Grandma get them with her pepper spray?" Oh if it were only that simple! This is one comment I want to remember always!

Tired boy

In the past week since starting pre-school Hunter has done this every time I have taken him to the grocery store! What do you think? Is he a little whipped out LOL

Pre-School time

So yesterday was Hunter's First day of Pre-School and he said, "mom, I can do it!!!! I can just ask around until I find who my new teacher is."

Hunter had a great time and is already for another day today! Yesterday was only 1 hour so he thought it was way to SHORT!!!! I told him not to worry, he had the rest of his life to go to school and I just know he will love it!!!!

As soon as we got to the cemetery Hunter walked right over to Hudson's grave and sat right down! As people arrived he was so quick to tell them whose grave he was sitting on! As cousins showed up he quickly ran over to them and said, "come over and see where Hudson is." As a mother of a child who lived for such a short time I had a flood of emotions I was pleased to see how Hunter was so loving at the grave and I loved how aware he was of his brother whom he had never met. I was then filled with so much gratitude for Hunter and for the little boy that he is! I feel so blessed every day to have him and I know I am one lucky mom! This is a picture of Hunter and his sweet little cousin Mackenzie sitting on the headstone!

You are loved

We received one of those 12:30 at night phone calls that no one likes to ever get and we found out that Ryan's Aunt Rhonda passed away suddenly earlier that night (7-21-2011)! I am so sad to think that we will no longer get to see her! Selfish I know especially when we as Latter Day Saint members know that death is just another part of life. I know she is in a better place but man she will be missed. My heart aches just thinking of her children that still have a lifetime to live without her around! I am so grateful for our dear Colby (Elder Pomeroy) who decided to stay in the mission field to fulfill a promise he made to his mother before he ever left on his mission! I am so grateful that Ryan and I were able to go to Rhonda's Funeral and see all of our family! What a wonderful and kind woman she was and I pray only wonderful things for her children's future! I know that Ryan feels very blessed to have been able to be the one to bless her grave and I am grateful that we know she is in a better place!

You were a huge part of my husbands life growing up and I feel so blessed that you included me in the family from day one when you met me! We miss you!

Guess who's 4

I myself have had a hard time with the fact that my sweet little hunter turned 4! Funny fact is I came home from girl camp talking about the girls that Hunter will one day date! Will he choose the brats? Will he choose the loners? Will he choose the sweet and helpful girls??? So many thoughts after this years camp I could not help it and this is what Ryan said, "Well honey I am glad you are thinking about this now because the dating years are right around the corner?" LOL he had to tease me for being so silly! Glad you had such a great bday little dude!

He had more fun decorating that I expected :)
