I knew it!! He does love his Sissy

Wyatt always tries to be a tough guy and act just like his big brother. Brittney always wants to kiss and hug on Wy and he wants no part of it. Tonight we had a good night, Eric got off at his normal time and we rented a movie and just "hung out". It was a really nice, quiet (rare in our house) night. I took my shower and when I went to tuck Wyatt in...he was NOWHERE to be found. So, I went off to Britt's room (I figured Wyatt was hiding in my room) that's when I saw the sweetest sight ever. He was tucked into her "PINK gurly" bed (as Wy would say)! He had brought his dino and wriggled himself right next to Britt. Moments like this make me so happy:) He is such a sweet boy and I am sure Britt will smile when she wakes up in the morning and can kiss him BEFORE he wakes up.

The Girl's in LOVE with a Vampire

Britt's B-day was at the end of October. We held out from giving her gifts to her...knowing New Moon stuff was coming out. She screamed so loud when she opened the box! I can't even count the times she has read the series of books. I feel like she is a wild horse I am holding the reins back on waiting for Wednesday:) She is soooo excited about going to see the movie with a group of friends from church. My Britt is so cute!!

Brittney's First Young Women's Program

Yesterday was the YW's program at out Ward. It was WONDERFUL! Our Ward has a small group of girls that are amazing. I am thankful for the example they set for Brittney. Brittney has blossomed into a beautiful young woman. Sister Clarkson said it perfect... Brittney has unconditional love. We have always said she is a "friend magnet". Brittney has such a sweetness about her and has always been so thoughtful. I am thankful to my Heavenly Father that he has allowed me to be her mother.

Rain Gutter Regatta Time

Wyatt and Eric worked so hard on his boat! He could not wait until Thursday came so he could "sail" it! Wyatt blew his little heart out and came in 2nd place overall in his group. I am proud of my little man and serious he takes his cubscout stuff.

So Happy Together...

Today is our 9th wedding anniversary! We were married in Gatlinburg, Tennessee. Since we had both been married before and Eric was not a member of the church at the time he suggested we go there. We drove through the night right after work on a Thursday. We got in our hotel room in the wee hours of the morning, so we slept for a bit. We were so excited to get married as soon as we woke up we (literally) walked to the marriage license office then headed up the street to the first chapel we came to. After we were married we went out to lunch and then headed to Ober Gatlingburg for some fun. I sat by and cheered Eric on as he Bungee jumped for the first time. it was so beautiful there with the leaves changing. Eric and I love Halloween so it was neat that they had a Haunted House still going on. After we returned home, the next weekend we had a reception for family and friends. Once Eric was baptized (on our 1 year anniversary) then the following year we were sealed. I am thankful that Eric came into my life and that he has been an amzaing father and husband. When I think about how we met, there is only one explanation...Heavenly Father. Words cannot express how much I love Eric and how each day we have grown stronger as husband and wife. I am so thankful that Eric has made the gospel a priority in our lives. I love you cupcake!!
