Here are my little ones during our own personal Christmas program. Kaleigh insisted in putting a blanket under her shirt so she could be pregnant like Mary. Benjamin is getting a little "old" for dressing up. Then there is my little Addie. She was our little "angel."
Here is Greg and I at a BYU game.....Yes, a BYU game. Never thought I could get Greg to convert from an Oklahoma fan....
Kaleigh is in preschool. It is done by three other pretty ladies and myself. We switch off houses every month. It has been so much fun.
Well, my little Ben is growing. He is doing well in 5th grade. He will get his "Arrow of Light" next month at Pack meeting. I am so proud of him. He loves scouts and it is fun to see him so excited.
Kaleigh is a special little girl. We had to give her Snow White Sparkles (her little kitten) and Eclipse (Snow White's mother) away for various reasons. She was heart broken. She still is. She wants to be a dancer and a veternarian when she grows up. She loves her family. Everything is always so "cute" to her. She keeps telling me that she wants flowers for her birthday because, "they are soooo beautiful." Greg is planning on getting her one for Valentines Day. So "cute."
Addie is changing so much. She loves to sing and dance. It is so precious. She loves singing, "I Love to See the Temple." She has become a cuddle bug. She is a big helper too. She loves to help me unload the dishwasher. It is wonderful help. I love having her as a part of our family.
I am doing well. Serving in primary and working a little too. I love being with my children. It has been such a blessing. We are ready for Spring to arrive. It gets hard being stuck in the house. We have had some cold days. It has been fun snuggling while watching a movie though.

Benjamin on the airplane coming home. So I have
coming home. She starts to cry, so I stop, then she tells me to keep singing. I dont' understand,
which makes it much easier. He isn't much of a
"phone" talker, but neither am I. He says he is having a lot of fun. What more can I ask for?
Kaleigh is learning how to write her name. She is doing very well. She likes to write it backwards, which is pretty funny. She is a smart little girl. She loves to color and loves reading
her when she gets hurt and will put her arms around Addy. Addy often prefers Kaleigh over
me. To cute!!! I am not jealous at all....well
maybe a little. Kaleigh loves playing with her
doesn't always need to play with friends. She
doesn't believe me. Wonder why? Kaleigh is a
social butterfly. We enjoy having her in our
family. I love having conversations with her, it is
very enlightening. We are going to start a neighborhood preschool this year with a few other families. I am excited, and so is Kaleigh.
to the ER and have the MD stitch it back on. My
little Addy was very brave. It was hard I have to
admit. Even though I am a nurse, it is definitely
harder to see your own child hurt. She has had a
little bit of anxiety when left with anyone besides
Mom or Dad. I guess that is expected after all
to potty train. It has been a little difficult. Addy loves to sit
on the toilet, but she doesn't understand that she sits on it
when she goes to the bathroom. I guess I need to give her
some credit. She has gone in the potty a few times, but not
when since we have been more seriously training her. Oh,
well, she will get it......hopefully. Addy loves to count her
now when I
giving Kaleigh a warning, Addy will start to count
with me. Which makes hard for me to refrain
Greg is doing well. He is taking some online classes for his resume. He is working hard to provide for our family. I am grateful for him and
the sacrifices he makes for our family. He is still serving in the Teacher's Quorum. He has been
all summer. He has a "green thumb." We have been very blessed with great harvesting. We
tomatoes, corn, onions, peppers, potatoes, and
watermelon. Yummy. Greg provides well for his
family. Thanks, honey!!!
I have been busy, but happy. I started the process of going back to school this summer but after trying to study to test out of a class, I
realized that I don't have much time to study, so
I decided I will have to wait a little longer to be a
nurse instructer. I am doing what I need to be
doing a this time as a mother. Which I love and
I am grateful to do. I am working at the hospital again, in Labor and Delivery. I love it, even
better, I only work a few times a month. Enough for a little extra money, and a get away.
I have been able to read a lot this summer. Which I love!!!!! It is nice to escape into a book
once in a while.
the first 2000 years, from Adam. I have learned sooooo much. I love gaining gospel knowledge
few of his precious spirits. My joy is so great for
this opportunity. I am grateful for my husband and the experiences this life has given to us to
become closer and grow together. I am grateful!

This past week we went up to St. George, Utah, for a Freeman family reunion. It was blast. we rented a big home and split the cost between all the siblings. We arrived on Friday, April 2. On our way down to St. George we drove through Kolob. It was beautiful.
I am soooo grateful for family. I have been so blessed with my family and Greg's family. We are surrounded by the gospel and family who are also living righteous lives. I am so grateful to my Heavenly Father for the blessings he has placed in my life. I am grateful for being a mother. I am grateful to have the scriptures to learn and grow closer to my Savior. How blessed we are to live in this dispensation. I heard a quote during General Conference this weekend. I can't remember who stated it but it went like this: "Two men can do anything, when one of them is the Lord." I testify of this and the truthfulness of the companionship that is available to all of us if we seek it and hold on to it. I am grateful for this knowledge.

July 4th was lots of fun. I was blessed to have my brother and his family come stay the evening with us. Also, my cousin, Camille and Jared were with us. We had a BBQ and did some fire works. The funniest part was the softball game we had in the backyard. I have enjoyed getting to know my cousin and her husband. They are so young and cute. Jared gave a beautiful blessing over the food. I was very impressed. I could feel his sweet testimony as he prayed. Also, our kids love them too. They will be great parents. July 17th-20th we went up to Duck Creek, Utah. We met my parents there with Benjamin. It was so fun. It brought lots of memories back for me. My family used to go to Duck Creek very often during the summers, when I was growing up. It was fun spending time with my brother Daniel. I haven't been able to spend much time with him since he has returned home from his mission. He is definitely a stud, and a righteous priesthood holder. I am so proud of him. I am grateful for the example he shows to Benjamin.
