youv'e had a birthday shout HOORAY!

Rhiot turned 1 on May 26th! He seems like such a big boy now and i can hardly believe that he is 1 year old already! I could have sworn in the early months that i was doomed to NEVER get a good nights rest and now we love our sleep so much we hardly ever wake up before 9! We had a party for him at the park which was really fun even though it was pretty windy :( all of his cousins came and he made out with some pretty awesome toys! His aunt Rikki made him a carnival cake and it was amazing! We are looking forward to every day we get to spend with you as you grow up Rhiot we love you sooooo much! Love Mom and Dad!

I am VERY happy to announce that on March 11th 2011 Braden Rhiot and I were sealed for time and ALL eternity in the snowflake temple!

It was such a beautiful day! We dresses Rhiot in a cute little white suit and when the temple worker brought him into the sealing room to be sealed to us he was asleep and soooo cute! UNFORTUNATELY he did not stay asleep and cried for the rest of the sealing, although it definantly did not take away from the spirit that we felt i think it is safe to say there was not a dry eye in the room. I am filled with joy having these two men in my life and am so happy to be with them forever!

Two days later i was able to speak in stake conference. Yeah there were like 3,000 people watching and listening to it AND an apostle was there (which only happens roughly every 30 years) It had been 36 for the Taylor stake. Needless to say i was pretty nervous! BUT safe to say i definantly lived through it and i think i did a darn good job and am very blessed to have been chosen to speak!

All in the midst of this Temple going and Conference speaking my grandpa died (my moms dad) he was only 64 and the cause of death is still unknown. We took a trip down to phoenix for his funeral and i sang at it. It was a really beautiful funeral and although i didnt know him very well i will still miss him.

BUT i cant leave my blog in a sad note. sooo.... Rhiots almost walking!! yup not even 10 months and he took 2 steps the other day! He is getting soooo big!
