Hailey the Firefighter

Hailey loves fire trucks. She notices them all over town and gets so happy to see them. So when we were walking out of Lin's today and saw a fire truck pulling in she was excited to get to see one up close. So we walked up to it and the firemen showed Hailey the inside of the firetruck which was cool to see even for me. Then they pulled out a little fire hat and gave it to Hailey. Well Hailey gave it to Davin and said "here Davin". Lucky for her they had another hat. So she ended up with one too. I thought that was so sweet that she was willing to give up her super cool fire hat just so Davin was happy. Anyways... Hailey has been SO happy all day, she keeps telling her story to everyone in here life. Oh yeah, after we were done she kept yelling back to the fire guys, "Thank you firefighters", and she keeps telling me how much she likes firefighters.

Hailey's 1st Birthday party

Hailey was invited to her first Birthday party. It was exciting. She had so much fun. She went to it with Autumn because she was afraid to be there alone. Her friend's name is Riley, and he just turned 4. Hailey picked him out a Lightning McQueen car that is remote control. Riley really loved it. His party was also in the Cars theme. Anyways...I thought it was a special occasion so I figured I would write about it.

My growing boy.

I walked into the bathroom the other day and found Davin standing up next to the bathtub. I just can't believe how fast time flies. He was just my new little baby not too long ago. And it seems like he just started crawling. Pretty soon he'll be walking.

A little of everything

Well life is boring it seems. However Autumn did have her Birthday on Sept. 21st. She turned 9. She is a lot of fun. She is always making me laugh, and she has such a wonderful imagination. I used to have quite an imagination when I was her age too. I used to make houses for my barbies out of everything I could find laying around the house. Now I walk into Autumn's room and on her desk is a whole house for her littlest pet shops, made up of stuff from around the house! lol. I remember having to clean up my mess...that part sucked and it took such a long time because everything was from all over the house. Anyways... Autumn got to take her BFF's to the movies for her Birthday. They went and saw Kung Fu Panda. Matt is the one who took them and actually said he really enjoyed the movie. He said it taught good morals. I'm glad it was a easy B-day, planning big party's is really hard. So I'm glad we decided not to do it every year. This is Autumn with a gift card she got at her "mini party".

Matt is back in Hatch, again. He is going every week now. Tuesday morning to Friday night. Yeah, it sucks. We all miss him when he is gone. The kids try and take advantage of me. Sometimes I'm a softy. What can I say, that is just how Mom's are sometimes. We got web cams so we can see each other, but right now he is at a motel with out Internet, so that plan won't work this trip.

I just got over some weird stomach bug. I caught it from Hailey. It was more like an intestine bug. I've really never had anything like it. It only lasted 2 days. Thank goodness.

The Temple

Last night we went to the Temple. It was nothing like I expected. It was so beautiful. I was sealed to Matt and then we were sealed to Hailey and Davin. The sealing was Amazing! When it was time to bring the kids in, I could hear Hailey coming up the stairs saying "I don't want to" and "I want to see my mommy". Everyone thought it was funny. However when she did see me and everyone else it completely freaked her out. She was scared. Davin realized he was hungry, so the kids wined through that part of the sealing. It was still beautiful. There was so much to take in. I was so hungry by the time we left. I'm looking forward to going back. I'm looking forward to helping my family who has already passed away. I want to seal my Mom to her parents and me to my parents. There is so much to do. Including getting Erin and Autumn sealed to us as soon as the adoption is complete.
I could not believe it when Joey and Jana (Matt's brother and wife) showed up! It was so neat. And then when we were about to get sealed his sister Jenny and her husband Buzz walked in!!! Talk about SURPRISED! It was awesome. They live far so we were not expecting them to make it. When I saw Jenny I was so Happy. It was a great day.

A new member

Autumn is now a member of the LDS church. She was baptised on Saturday the 6th of Sept. She was confirmed today at church. She was so happy when she came out of that water, she kept telling me how good she felt. And then she was saying how good she felt again today after they confirmed her. I remember when I got baptised, I remember feeling really good afterward. I'm proud of her for making the right choice.
I also got a calling today, I'm on the Relief Society Enrichment Committee. I think it will be a lot of fun. I was worried at first, I thought they might call me as a teacher or something. I was stressing for nothing. I seem to do that a lot. I was only worried about how I would full fill a calling like that with Davin still being so young. The Lord has everything under control.

The date is set

The date is set. We will be going to the Temple and getting sealed on Tuesday Sept 9th. I have to be there at 3:10pm and the Endowment will start at 4:40 and the Sealing at 6:40pm. I'm really excited and also nervous. I'm only nervous because I don't really know what to expect. Fear of the unknown.
Anyways, I started book 4 of the Twilight series yesterday. I really like these books.

So I have been reading Twilight and the following books. Oh My Goodness!!! It is fabulous! Today I finally get to start the last and final book. I have read 3 (long) books in 9 days. Matt said I'm addicted. He is right. I have never read a fantasy before. I've always stuck to non-fiction. Man, I've really been missing out on some exciting reading. I can't not wait to start the last book so I can see how the story ends. My friend Alicia has all the books so she has just been loaning them to me as a go. I'm so happy about that, because I went to the library the other day to see if they had it in, and they don't! All 23 copy's are checked out and there is a long waiting line.
I went down and got all my Temple clothing the other day. It was a fun experience. I'm glad my sister-in-law went with me cause I had no idea what I was doing.
Matt is heading back up to Hatch today for 3 days. It has been a while since the last time he went up there. I t feels like the first time again. I'm glad I have my book to read. It will be great. The book will take me about 3 days to read too. :o)
