and to prove it, we took pictures.
Hope you are having a wonderful Sabbath day. 
A day to renew the covenants we made at baptism.

I just love the how Will has the 
same expression on all of them.

Happy Birthday to my mother dear (yesterday)
Wish I could have been there to celebrate with you. I am grateful to Heavenly Father for you!

{ Will at 22 and 23 months old}

Will is almost 2 years old! 
I can't believe how fast he is growing.
He is super independent and loves to help me in the kitchen.
 He is down to one nap a day but if he naps twice, 
he still sleeps  great through the night,
He talks a lot. 
I don't understand most of it 
  but he loves to get our attention by say "dee"
He loves to eat walnuts, pistachios, sunflower seeds and peanuts. 
He loves banana chocolate shakes in the morning.
He loves to mimic sounds. We took him to a pond on campus and he was trying to mimic ducks. super cute.
He loves to count and when I say the alphabet with him
He loves to read books
He loves to color and draw
He loves to go slides all by himself
He loves to play in the water but 
he hates when his hair gets wet
He loves to climb 
He loves to sit at the table and eat.
I am trying to get him to eat veggies. its a little difficult so I hide them in his fruit smoothies.
He loves his dad. They are one in the same. they make me laugh.
Will knows that he can rough house with Kent but with mommy he is soft and cuddly.
I learn so much from this boy. He is so special. 
He loves to say "try to say" family prayers. its so cute.

{ a brave little girl}

This little girl was bitten by a shark on the coast of North Carolina. As soon as her parents got her on shore she asked them to pray to Heavenly Father for her foot to heal. What a wonderful example she is to us all. This is why we are taught to teach our children from an early age. It is through trials that our Faith in God is strengthen.  

{ family treasures}

While I was in Sam Diego I had a chance to get some genealogy info from some of my aunts and uncles about my Grandpa Manuel and Grandma Maria de la luz. It was so nice to hear story about them and to get to know them through that. 
I found a picture in my moms things of my grandmother and some of her children.

Starting clockwise we have my aunt Lucy, my Grandmother, my uncle Manuel, my MOM, my aunt Diana, and my aunt Lupe.
 I look exactly like my mom when I was her age.  William looks like her don't you think?

I am so grateful that I have the opportunity to continue doing genealogy for my family. 
this an important work.

{anniversary weekend}

Our dear friends the Wings volunteered to watch Will on Friday while Kent and I celebrated our anniversary. Kent took me to La Jolla Grove for dinner at Riverwoods. It was so delicious. I love that Kent was excited to dress up for that night. He knows how much I love to do that. After dinner we went over to Rocky Mountain Chocolate Factory and got my favorite Apple Pie carmel apple.  we then drove out to Thanksgiving Point to see the premier of Captain America AND it was awesome!! we had a wonderful night to ourselves. I am so excited to celebrate many, many more anniversaries with my best friend. 

 Sunday was our official anniversary day and after going to church we had a delicious dinner at home and a nice walk around a duck pond at BYU.  later that evening I made some gluten free peanut butter cookies with rolos. yum!

Okay, so while I was in San Diego I was going through all of my things from high School and I found a movie ticket stub for The Count of Monte Cristo( Feb 23rd 2002). That was the movie Kent and I saw on our first date. I had forgotten that I had kept it. This is what we got in the mail from my sweet mother in law on Friday. 
now all we need to do is get a frame for the ticket stub and movie poster. 
Thank you Judy, that was very special.

{happy 3rd year anniversary}

3 years ago today I was sealed to my love in the San Diego Temple.  I am so grateful for the covenants we made in the house of the Lord and for the knowledge that we will be together forever.  I am truly blessed to be married to a worthy priesthood holder and an amazing husband and father. He is exactly who I need by my side.
In the short time we have learned so much. I still remember the shy boy that asked me on a date February 23rd 2002. I love him and I am so grateful he waited for me. 

Happy Anniversary to US!
