Dear Little Sister,

I hope this is ok that I write this. I figure at least I am not writing it on your blog...(which I did write something, but I couldn't help it).
I want you to know that you have gone through something terrible. My biggest fear! I always wanted to be pregnant so badly...but...I always feared what would happen if I lost that baby. You my sister deserve nothing like this!
I have to admit..when you told me you were pregnant...I was Happy...but I was sad! I was jealous...and now I feel so guilty. When Mom told me that you would loose this pregnancy, this baby that you have wanted for so heart is completely broken for you!
If I could bare this pain for you...I would!
I do know how much you have wanted this....and you will have it! I know how hard it is to see that right me...but you will. This just has to happen for you!
I wonder sometimes why we are given certain trials and why we are supposed to experience things...I don't know why! I do know that when we finally have our babies..we will cherish them! More then anyone could.
Little sister you are going to have this...not now...but you will! I love you and I wish there was something I could do....I would do it!
My caseworker once told me last year after Cassie changed her mind. She told me to be sad..take that time and really be sad but then..don't be. She said it like it was just so simple...don't be! I liked that she said, because no one can say the right things. Everyone will try and make you feel better and it won't work. Just know that this is REALLY crappy but you will get through it!
Man...all seriousness aside...what kind of drugs did Mom take to screw up our fertility so badly! :)


So the other day I was looking at my beautiful niece Rorie who just turned 8 and I got very emotional. This little girl has been in my life sense she was born....Mind you she was 2 when we got married but I held her as a newborn (so it counts).
This was Rorie the day we got married...LOVE

This was Rorie a couple of months ago...Yes her and her uncle are texting on there phones!!
Look at how tall she is, how grown-up she looks!

I love this little girl so much and really want her to stop growing. She used to call me Brin-tee! She calls me Aunt Britt now, which is just as cute but I don't like that she is getting older.
I am so blessed to have these little girls in my life and would do absolutely anything for them!
Getting older sucks!

Happy Anniversary House

We moved into our house TWO years ago today.
It was snowing and freezing but it was Awesome!
So I thought I would share some before and afters of some things that
we have done.
They are not in a very good order...the stupid post uploader thing was being retarted!

So here goes...Our Home

Our Office...this picture was 1 day after we moved in.
What a Mess!

Kind of...This was about a year ago. I have changed it up a little bit.

Our Bedroom

Our Bedroom Now

Guest Bedroom

We have BIG plans for this space!

Entry/Stairway Then

Entry/Stairway Now

So all in all we have done quite a bit..I think.
Taking it one room at a time.
We were so terrified to buy a house...thinking what if...and what if this...
and What if you lost your job?
Well we have managed to get through all of those What if's!
And we added two little dogs to the mix.

My Friend...

Bekah has come up with a fantastic idea!! She is going to go on 30 dates before her 30th birthday. On said birthday she will bring with her a guy who stood out among all of the others. Kind of like a small version of the Bachelor for active Mormons.
I don't really now any single guys her age so I am asking for your help! Her blog which will be documenting all dates is...
I love this girl and think she is super cute, FUN and all around a good catch!
So spread the word!
