The blessing of Forever Families

Many have read about my sweet friend Abigail here.  Last night she returned to our Heavenly Father and is running around enjoying a pain free body.  I am sure she is laughing and having a great time, while we are left here on this earth to mourn her loss.  
Abigail was so strong.  She fought a good fight.  She taught all of us, particularly me.  This little girl has the sweetest smile and beautiful blue eyes.  Her family is absolutely AMAZING!  I have learned so much from them.  I can't imagine what they are going through at this time.  I am sure it is peace and comfort but a deep sadness at the passing of Abigail.  
To the Goss Family, thank you so much for all you have taught us about faith, hope, love, peace all in the midst of adversity.  You are my heroes.  I have hugged my kids tighter and spoken softer.
Through the gospel of Jesus Christ and through the Power of the Priesthood, families are forever!  Because of the choice Aaron and Annabeth made when getting married, they are sealed for time and all eternity.  
They are an 
We will continue to pray for you that you may have peace and comfort.

Katie's 5!

5 years ago today, I became the proud mother of a beautiful tiny tiny baby girl.  She came out screaming and she hasn't stopped yet.  I love her willingness to always help!  She is so kind and considerate.  She thinks of others all the time and is concerned with how they are feeling.

I sat down with Katie and asked her a bunch of questions and these were her answers:

Easter 2013

Easter is such a fun time of year!  Winter is hopefully coming to a close, the grass is starting to turn green, the birds are singing, kids can play outside.  But what I love most about Easter is celebrating the resurrection of Jesus Christ.  This is the true meaning of Easter.  Because He gave his life for us on the cross and rose the 3rd day, we all have the opportunity to be resurrected.  I love my Savior so much!  I know that He lives and He loves us!
We had our annual glow in the dark Easter egg hunt on Friday night.  It didn't turn out so great as our eggs didn't glow this year.  I tried the glow in the dark spray paint and glow in the dark duct tape but they just didn't light up like they do when you put glow sticks in them.  The kids had a great time hunting for the eggs with their flash lights.  Such a great tradition we do every year.  We had about 250 eggs for everyone to find.  Lots of FUN!!!
This is our handsome Tyler getting ready to go to church!  I love this guy 
so much!!!!
He is so thoughtful, kind, an amazing artist.  He loves to smile and help people.
This is our princess Katie! Look at that attitude!  She is such a joy in our family.  She too loves to help.  I can't do anything without her wanting to help.  She is smart, cute, fun, loves to laugh and cook.  I love having her in our family.
This has been a fantastic Easter.
