Making Lemonade...

Life has thrown my family a ton of lemons at us... my mom says we will be making a ton of lemonade.
My step-dad has been diagnosis with esophagus cancer. They caught it pretty early but he can't swallow anything... The word cancer is a pretty scary word and for some reason I always picture the devil's face when I hear that word- probably because it's so awful! Anyways growing up I hardly ever heard of anyone getting cancer and then when I came to college it's like as common as the flu or something. It just seems that more and more people are getting it. The first person I knew real well that had cancer was my seminary teacher. He was probably the most spiritual person I ever knew. When he became my teacher, he hadn't been a member very long, he just has the coolest life story about his conversion story to getting married and having the most beautiful daughters- I wish someone would write a book about him because he seriously was an amazing man.
How about some good news now?! Well Blake and I will be an uncle and aunt to Jesse and Natasha's baby BOY! I knew it was going to be a boy=) We are so excited and thrilled for them! Blake will have to put me on a tighter budget because I will want to buy him everything. This little one will be so spoiled because he has so many people that are going to love him so much! I just can't wait till he gets here!

I'm A Terrible Blogger

Alot has happened in the past month, let's recap...
For spring break Blake and I went down to Vegas with some of our friends for a few days. The resort was amazing, had a ton of fun, and got to see some interesting people. It was nice to get away from the snow. After Vegas, we fly to Houston to go visit my Dad down there. We went to the Houston Rodeo- Blake was in heaven! We also saw Brooks and Dunn in concert. My mom came up to see us and we went with her to the Houston Temple and then to Kemah. Plus we did a little shopping=) I was glad she came up for a day.

As for right now, Blake and I are just getting ready for finals! I'm so glad that it's almost summer=) I wish it was summer all year round. Blake is working at Cal Ranch and I am looking for a job that will work around Mohey. They are the sweetest girls and I love being their coach. GOO MOHEY=)
Some bad news though... Blake's beloved horse, Cadillac, past away last Friday. He had him since Blake was 12 years old and has won alot of ropings on him. He was a good old horse. I just hope there is a Heaven for animals or else I will be so sad. I know I will be a mess when my old dog, Bandit dies- he is back home in TX with my family... Yes we still have Baby Ace who is getting so big!
