With a Little Luck

I've been a bit busy, and a bit lazy when I am not busy. Just to show how much fun Ive had this summer.

Our local radio staion put on a drawing. It didnt cost anything but something inside of me kept nagging me that I need to enter that contest! Well I went to lunch with my good friend Liz and one of the entry boxs was at her work. So I finally entered my name and Devins. They called me a few nights later and told me I was a finalist. WAHOO! I kept thinking, "I'm going to win this thing, but I dont want to get my hopes up!" Well, I told Devin my feelings and he thought I was crazy, I told my mother in law, she thought I was crazy... It seemed everyone thought I was crazy if I though I was going to win this thing. Well, the day came. We went to Jorgensens where the final drawing was. I had a 1 in 53 chance to win, and thats just the finalists. They were on the air when they drew the lucky winner and they said "I better hear the person that wins this." I was thinking Crap I am not a screaming type of winner. I am more embarrassed if I win even if I am excited! They pulled my name and Devin, My mother in law and my Father in laws jaws hit the floor. I kinda did a "WAHOO" with as much enthusiasm as I could drudge up. They asked me a couple questions on the radio and Gave me the info I needed. Here is what I won!

*A swimming party for me and 50 friends
*A BBQ for the party
*A New BBQ that they used for the Party
*$100 Gift Certificate to Christensens Department store
*$100 Gift Certificate to Walmart
*A hair cut and Style at Salon 56

I was thrilled and had so much fun with everyone. They even did a "Sound Byte" for their radio station. I am not very Articulate when I am put on the spot haha! So Glad I had some friends and Family to Celebrate my winnings with me.

Just to tell you how lazy/busy I have been this happend August 17th haha!

2 Years ago!

Two years ago this morning was the first morning I ever woke up next to my loving Husband. We were Married two years previous from yesterday... and we cant believe it. I wouldnt have changed anything about my wedding at all! It was one of the best days of my life. It was a start of finding who I was and who I will be. I have grown so very much because of the life my husband has provided for me and I love and thank him for all he does.

I could have never expect or imagine that my life would be so gratifying because of that day. We have had the best life since we met one another. I couldnt imagine myself with anyone else, and I have never met someone so kind, loving, generous, Compationate, Amazing, and Strengthening in my life. He makes me want to wake up each morning and do my best. He is my companion for eternity and he has made that possible for me and I am so greatful. Love is comparible to to not one earthly thing. I am baffled at his unconditional love and support. Baby, I love you with all of my heart and I am so thankful for the gifts you have given me like our beautiful son. You are my light and my soul.

I cant think of anyone who makes such cute babies as you and I. You are an amazing father. No matter if your patients is wearing thin, you still know how to handle things and you take the time each day to tell our son how much you love him and how much he means to us. I know he looks up to you already. He brightens up as soon as you walk in the door from work. We love you with everything and hope that you know that. All our love.

Easter weekend: On Friday, Devin had a Mission reunion. We headed up that day and visited with a bunch of old friends. We then went to my parents. On Easter day we went out to my Grandma Donna's house who had an easter egg hunt for the great grand kids and rented a big blow up slide. So here are our adventures.

Aquarium Fun.

We took Trevin to the Living Planet Aquarium on the Saturday before Easter, since we were up visiting my parents. We had so much fun, Trevin was just amazed by the fish! At home we have a light up fish tank that have fish that go around and around on it, and Trevin loves watching it and tries to say "fishy". A few times I heard him say "fffffaaaa" which is his word for fishy. We also were lucky enough to have My sister and brother in law come with their two girls Ally and McKenzie, And my wonderful mother as well.

Chilean Earthquake

We have all heard of the recent Chilean Earthquake. A good friend of mine sent me this article today and I had to share it. It touched my heart so deep that I literaly cried the whole way through it. It reminds me how lucky we are to have the gospel in our lives and how God prepares people in their own time. It is sad to think that something this emense should have to take place to get people to open their eyes, but I just have to remember that Its a blessing they open their eyes. I am so proud of our Missionaries. I love each and every one of them for what they do for our brothers and sisters.

Please, take the time to read this. I hope it touches your heart like it did mine.

Trevin was born with a condition called Hypospadias. I am going to try not to get to graphic, but his Urethra didnt come out the tip, but much lower. To be able to pee straight and to have a better chance and procreating, Trevin had to go in on Monday, February 22, 2010 for corrective surgery. When we first found out he had this problem it was a little concerning, seeing how that we didnt have insurance. We went to the doctors when he was probably a month old and they told us it would cost almost $10,000 to have this corrected. We didnt know how we were going to pay for this. We were Terrified. Luckily we were able to get on Medicaid, and they covered the whole cost. We feel so blessed. We werent to concerned to get it done because they told us that its very common, that its and easy fix, it only takes about a half an hour, and that he doesnt have to have it done until he is over 6 months old. Well time flew by us like we all know it does. The next thing I knew, we were driving to my Grandma Dona's house Sunday night and Monday morning at 8:30 He would be in surgery. We felt so blessed, Devins parents Drove all the way up to Riverton from Elsinore to be at the hospital with us. My parents Drove from Grantsville to be there, and also Devins Sister Marcea came as well. We felt so loved. As we did the routine to get Trevin ready, I was scared because I know he doesnt handle well when he is hungery and he couldnt have anything but water after midnight and nothing after 6:30. As Sunday night went along, we were trying to distract ourselves from what would happen the next morning. We took a nap when we got to My grandma's, then we went to Dinner, and soon off to visit my Aunt and Uncle in Draper. We came home got Trevin to bed, and just as we were settling into bed about to drift off into LaLa Land, I hear a blood curtling Scream. Trevin woke up screaming his head off from what? Im not sure still. It was one of these things. Sleeping in a new place, Scared, Diaper Rash, or wanting a warm Bottle. It took us about 20-30 minutes to get him to stop screaming and crying. I tried a bath I tried a bottle I tried bouncing him, changing his diaper. Anything I could think of. Finally I wamed his bottle and He was okay. Well I finaly get to sleep and I swear I woke up every half and hour thinking did I Sleep through the alarm? Is it time yet? I was getting nervous. We got him to the hospital the next morning and everyone was there. We did the hospital routine, and got him back and as the Anethsesiologist took our son from our arms He was asleep. Trevin opened his eyes one more time to peek at us and went to sleep. As we walked away we tried not to cry. As we went into the waiting room with our family the water works hit us both. It took them almost 2 hours to fix Trevins problem, and told us only one of us could go see him in the recovery room. I jumped up and went, I felt bad afterwards and appologized to Devin. I was just a little jumpy. I walked in and Trevin was laying there batting his hands at the nurses bages. He saw me and instantly started to cry wanting me to hold him. I held him and loved him and make him feel okay. I gave him some glucose water but he was a little upset as most are after surgery. They gave him a second dose of medicine and he seemed to relax. Except when his face was itching from it he just wanted to sleep. They kept us there for longer then20 minutes so Devin was getting nervous. Fianlly He asked the Nurse if he could come back, she came to see what was going on and they were just getting ready to move us and Devin met us back in the new area.He made us a little nervous though in the recovery area, because of his Morphine he wouldnt breath as deep as we needed him to. His oxygen levels would drop periodicly, so we had to stay there for close to 2 hours instead of 1. I passed him to Devin and both of us just wanted to cry, because we knew how important he is in our family. We knew how much we really cared for this little boy. We were over come with joy that he was okay, that everything went okay. The Doctor had told us that He did really well, that they only had one thing surprise them. They said when they put the catheter in that in some parts the skin was so thin that they could read the writting on the catheter. So the cuts had to be bigger. They said that 2/3rds of his penis had a horse shoe cut on it. I know he was in pain, but he was so good. Once they took the bandages off his hand to hold the IV in, he was happy! He just wanted to chew on his hand! We are so blessed each day. We couldnt even imagine what life would be like with out our sweet little boy. Thanks for everyones prayers and wishes for Trevins safty. We love you all! Proud daddy.

Comfy much?

Spralled out on Dad!
