So for those of you that have been on my crazy ride of life with me know how much I have wanted and how long I have waited for my family to be sealed together!!! Well that day is finally coming. On August 16 2009, I received a letter from the first presidency that the cancellation of my sealing to Brian has finally gone through!!!!!!!!!! I cried the whole way home from the mailbox and then I cried some more. I held my hubby and daughter.....then cried more. (I know, I'm a baby) But for all who know how much of a fight this has been, I'm sure you can see why it is so emotional!
It has been a long road for sure. Chris and I started the process back in January 2007 when we got engaged. Since that time, we have had to deal with court, tons of paperwork, people not doing their part, etc. Our paperwork finally went to Salt Lake at the end of July and then only took three weeks to get back!!!!!! So much sooner than we thought! Anywho...so then we had the decision of when to do it. The date we had already picked was farther out because of the time span of getting the letter back, but it came way sooner!
Well, after thinking things through, we decided that we have fought long and hard for this and deserve to do it the way we wanted to anyway! So we are getting sealed in the San Diego Temple on October 31, 2009!!! We talk about it everyday and are just looking so forward to it!
Thank you to everyone who kept us in their prayers and helped us along the way! Our eternal family loves you more than you could ever know!

She also received a "Johnny Jumper" from my good friend, Mykee that looks like tigger and loves it! She is able to stand up and dance/bounce all she wants!
Gotta love kids!
All three girls loved it! The touch pool was a big hit since there is water and lots of slimy things to touch! At one point I went to take a picture of Kathleen and her girls but almost couldn't because a huge shark was coming so close to the glass but didn't want to say anything until I got the shot... as you can see I was not lying!

Chris' parents have known Larry and Laura (known to us and Uncle Larry and Aunt Laura) a very long time so everytime we all get together it is just another memory made!
This one is so critical because I managed to get a picture of her wearing a team that I like before Chris could get another on her...now if only I could get a Yankee jersey on her everything would be perfect! (Chris is a Red Sox fan!) Gross!! Tee hee hee! Can't wait til we go over again!
I love this picture of us two!
Kooky Uncle Tony...my favorite is that they are making the same face!
I also noticed the Mirage was celebrating its 20th year! We moved to Las Vegas just about the time it was opening so that was such a crazy feeling to see that it had already been up 20 years! Where does the time go! After all those nostalgic memories we finally made it to the Shark Reef!
This is one of Isabella's favorite places to go (I actually swear she gets mad when we leave!) Chris and I love to take her because we get in free!! Yay us! For my anniversary gift I told Chris I would love to have the picture they take when you walk in and the awesome frame to go with it!! So he got it for me!! What a guy!
As you can see we had a blast, yes there are pictures of Chris but he hates them all over the place...such a boy! Tee hee hee!
We went to the park after our date this morning to celebrate Isabella's five month birthday! LOL! Cheesy right, but it was such a nice day! Don't come across those too often in August here!!! I cannot believe she is five months already! She is just growing and growing! She is in her jumper, walker, swing, bouncer, stroller, car seat, and mommy's and daddy's arms all the time! She loves to be active! She is starting to teethe..so sad. Wish there was more I could do! She loves to go to the Shark Reef (Chris and I getin for free), so we go often! She is finally in the next size clothes and diapers! Yay me! A few more scraplings of hair are coming in! She still hasn't grown into those ears but that's okay! Chris and I love her so very much and are truly blessed to have her in our lives!
