Good byes

I was happy to have Candice and Samuel come to Utah. It was nice to have her see where I came from and the beauty of fall in the mountains. The trip went as i had expected not hoped for but as a expected.
Candice is my best freind, she has always been there for me and I know she will always be there for me, I can trust her with Abby I know Abby will be taken care of in the way I want her to be I know she will eat healthy well rounded food, and she will get her meds at the proper times and amounts, I know Abby will go to her if she is hurt or upset.
I have watched her son grow for the past year and the kids have grown just as close. when Samuel is upset Abby will go over and try to comfort him she will hold his hands and dance.
We all do everything together, sometimes just me and the kids, sometimes, the moms and kids and sometimes dustun and us.
Dustun is a good man, he is a great father and a wonderful husband, he is always helping around the house, and when he knows i am stressed he offers to watch the kids so i can go out a relax.
I know people question why Candice and I are always together, they say I am different around her, (i still dont know how, neither does dustun) but we are Friends best friends, we are like sisters, we help each other out, we know each other in and out I know when she puts up her shield and she knows when i put up mine. WE click (we as in all of us) I wish my family could she the real Candice and how much she does like help my grandma in and out of the car, or help frost baby shower cupcakes, or cut up fruit or always offering her help.,or taking care of Abby if she is crying and I'm busy.
She is in the Army she does have "tough abrasive personality" i know she is loud, but i also know she is wonderful mother to her son and wonderful Friend to me and will do anything for my entire family. Thank you Candice for coming to Utah to help celebrate this little miracle growing in me. WE love you.

Hatch Family chocolates

On TLC they have a show called the little chocloateriers it is filmed in Salt lake when I asked candice to come with us to utah she asked if we could go to the store, so on the last day before the airport we went to it, but first I had to take her to the lion house and to show her some of the temple grounds, then we got dessert. So good, its must if your in salt lake and who knows you might get to meet them.

Abby and carmel

So a long time ago I saved a cat, he has been mine, all though I have never moved with him he stayes with mom and dad, but a few months ago he wandred off I figured he got smooshed, but when we came back to Utah he re appeared. Abby loved seeing the cat she finally learned to meow. The cat didnt know what to think so he always ran away, one day Candice held the cat so happy could pet him it was so cute! I loved seeing her smile and be so happy!!


Salt lake

Before Candice and Samuel left town I wanted to show them around Utah and do something fun, so we loaded up and drove to Salt lake City, we ate at a Italian restaurant, which was good.

Then we went to the clark planetarium kinda lame but the kids loved walking on mars and the moon, and watching this weird contraption dropping and picking up balls.

After that we decided to go walk around the gateway, and we ran into a childrens musuem, which was awesome! I loved it, I could have stayed there all day, I think the kids could have also stayed had they not been ready to close. I wish I would have gotten more pictures, but i was having to much fun!
After the museum we went to the fountains and let the kids play in the water, fun fun!

All and all another great day!

baby shower

I was so happy to share this wonderful little miracle with my family and my friend.
I still cant believe I am pregnant with our little boy this is so amazing!
I want to thank, kami, amanda, candice, my aunt mino and my mom for all there help in putting this shower together, with out them I wouldn't have had a house to host it in, food to feed people, decorations to make it look nice, and every other detail that was much appreciate. Thank you to all that showed up and brought gifts. It was a beautiful shower.

The only thing I wish I got was a picture of my girls who helped out with this shower, Or a belly shot, oh well it was still good! thanks again!

Peach days

Sorry its been so long but I have been busy! Dustun, Candice, Abigail, Samule and I all flew to utah on Septempeter 8th. The flight was good, the kids did great. We came home to have a baby shower, do peach days and visit family.

Of course for me peach days is all about food and peach treats. I ate and ate so much and I still wish I could have had more! I have peach cobbler from 3 different places, peach fritters, a peach and strawberry tart and maddoxs fresh peach pie and the seafood salad, gyros, burgers, popcorn roasted nuts, ate at my favorite utah only reasurats and picked off what others had ordered (geeze no wonder I gained so much weight)

Dustun went hunting with his mom and dad and mom watched samuel and Abby while they took there naps, candice and I went to the car show, it is so amazing to see all the cars and what people do them.

This year Abby was born so she actually got to see the parade, the year before i was pregnant with her. maybe in next year ill have both at the parade. The candy part was dumb, she got one taffy and one tootie roll, I didnt get to sit a relax and watch the parade, cause when you have two kids that want to dance and run with all thats going on your always up and going. We all had fun though!

I think the funnest part for me was this guy that pulls these old barrels behind the tractor, this old man was crazy I was laughing the whole time, when we got done dad asked so who had more funthe mommys or kids??! I say the mommys!

All and all I got a good time at peach days and I was happy to share it with everyone!
