Families Are Forever

One of my Favs


Great parents and even greater grandparents!











My Mom has wanted family pictures for as long as I can remember(our last family picture I was in 5th grade!) and as our family has grown and people have came in and out of our lives we have always made excuses not to get together and do them. Well 3 out of 4 of us are married and 2 of us have babies and one has gone on a mission. Well before Stu left on his mission we decided it would be the perfect time to get pictures so we did it! Whew it took awhile and of course everyone was griping cause everyone hates pictures and yada yada yada!!! I am so glad we could get together and it was lots of fun. Becca did an amazing job, and Im so glad she put up with us!My family is the most amazing, strongest families I know! We have all been through alot together and are still so close and love each other so much. My mom and Dad took me and Nate in when they were just starting their lives together and I am so amazed at the strength and courage they had to take in 2 kids while they were just trying to get their family started. I know they were sent to us by heavenly Father and I thank him everyday for them. A very short time later had Kera then Stu and suffered the loss of another baby. all I can say is WOW! They had already gone through so much the first few years of their marriage. Sometimes I think I have had it hard and Ive been through alot but my parents really have and yet they are still in so much love and so strong spiritually I look up to them so much and hope that I can be just as half as good as they are. They have helped out soooo much with Harlee I dont know what I would do with out them! I love them very much and if I say Im thankful for them that would really be an understatement!!! I also have to say I have the sweetest sisters and coolest brothers anyone can ask for. Nate and Tera have really done alot for me and I never tell them but I really really appreciate it! Me and Kera havent always got along but Im sure glad were as close as we are now I love our little talks and the way we can make fun of mom together ;) I also LOve love her little girl and am so glad her and Harlee can grow up together! and Stu I am so thankful for his amazing spirit and so glad I got to spend some time with him before he left we really miss him but hes doing the lords work and we are thankful for that. Now, My amazing husband, He really puts up with alot And Im so excited to get to be sealed to him eternally soon! Sorry this is so long. I just Love my family so much and feel like I cant talk about them enough. Well I guess Im done! Just wanted to say that i am truly thankful that Families are Forever!
