Brag time

I know this has taken me so long to post but I am finally doing it. I really have the most wonderful husband in the world.

For Mothers Day he surprised me and got me a Bosch. I have been wanting one for a long time. It was a total surprise and I was so excited I used it the next day.

Then the next weekend he surprised me and took Friday off of work and arranged for our amazing friends ( the Payne's) to watch our kids and we went to Scottsdale and stayed at one of our favorite resorts and did lots of shopping and eating.

Then on Saturday before my birthday he threw a surprise Birthday Party for me. I did know something was going on but I had no idea how big it was.

These are my amazing sister in laws that help Ryan with the party. They helped so much with the invites and food and games. I am so lucky to have such a great family. Thanks for all your help Lana Holly and Rach.

You can see on my face how shocked I am.

This is my brother James and my sister Shelley. Thanks for coming and bringing the yummy salsa and Rice crispy ice cream. (my favorite)

This picture doesn't even do it justice. Our house was soooo hot because there were so many people there. I am just so lucky to have such wonderful friends and neighbors who came to help me celebrate. Thanks to all you who came and made my birthday so much fun and memorable.

Emma Shelley Blair

Yesterday would have been Emma's 4th Birthday. So I just wanted to post some pics I have of her and somethings we remember about sweet little Emma.

Emma always had the cutest little smile.

Emma was so good with her passy. She always had it on the little ribbon so she could find it easy. She would grab the ribbon and slide her hand down to the passy so quick. It was the cutest thing.

Hallie always wanted to hold Emma but because of her condition she only got to hold her once. Both of them loved every minute of it.

Emma loved all the kids she would get a huge smile and start waving her arms when she saw any of the kids.

Brodee loved Emma but he couldn't get too close to her to often. You can see she loved him too as she leans in for him to give her a kiss.

My favorite memory of her is at church. When we would walk in to Sacrament Meeting she would see us and get the hugest smile on her face and stick her hand up in the air and wave to us. I loved that. Our first Sunday after she passed I walked in and saw Shelley and Rusty and broke into tears because I didn't see Emmas bright shine face and her little hand waving around at us. We had the great opportunity to spend alot of time with Emma and Shelley because they just lived down the street and I am so greatful for the time she spent with us. She just had the sweetest little spirit. I can't wait to see her again. I just pray that all the people I love will remember her and try harder everyday so that we all can be with her ,and all the other loved ones we have, again.

Thanks Shelley and Rusty for bringing her sweet little spirit into the world that touched so many lives.
