This picture was taken during Christmas break of 2004. I think it was the day after TJ proposed to me. We had to take our engagement pictures before we went back to school. The last semester flew by and 4 months later we got married, moved to The Grand Canyon State, got jobs, and had no idea what was in store.

I still have no idea what's in store for the future and some things haven't changed much (we still live in Arizona and probably always will). Every day I get to spend with the 2 people I love the most is a gift from God.

We've come a long way over the last 4 years. I couldn't be happier with the place I am at in my life right now. I feel so lucky and blessed.

Happy Anniversary T. Thanks for 4 great years.

My kind of cat

Paisley was crawling around the house all morning with this toy mouse in her mouth. She loves putting toys (or anything really) in her mouth and then crawling around. Today I discovered a cat that I actually do like :)

Daddy's Girl

I was in the kitchen cleaning and I started hearing this giggling. It's one of my favorite sounds so I had to record it. Paisley loves playing with her Daddy.

She loves to crawl and climb her new favorite thing is to crawl through her exersaucer.

Paisley is so lucky to have such a good Daddy. He watched her all by himself this weekend while I went to Boston. When I got home it didn't even seem like she missed me at all.

I tried to get a picture of her in her Easter dress but she didn't want to sit still and smile- this is the best I could do.

I had so much fun this weekend with Blair and JoAnna. Thanks for a fabulous weekend.

My life has been a complete roller coaster over the past few months. In the middle of January TJ called me up and told me that Fulton Homes was filing bankruptcy and once the month ended he would no longer have a job. Of course I freaked out. We didn't have very much money saved and what we did have we were using to compensate for losing my income when Paisley was born. I had no idea what we were going to do. We didn't know if we were going to lose our house, our car, or anything else. After a while I calmed down, even though my life had just been turned upside down I realized this was the hand we would be dealt and we had to figure out how to live with it.
Things managed to work out for us. My work picked up and it was nice to have TJ here to help take care of Paisley. We put our faith in the Lord and knew we needed to trust in him. I am so glad we didn't have to wait too long. This week TJ got a job offer. I feel like a gigantic weight has been lifted off my shoulder. I know that if you put your trust in the Lord he will provide. I feel so incredibly blessed to have faith in my life. There's been several times in my life when I would not have made it through with out the comfort of the Holy Ghost and my faith in God the Father, and his Son, Jesus Christ. I know that the Lord is mindful of our needs and I honestly believe that he has to give us trials to remind us who is in control. I am so grateful to Heavenly Father for providing for us and blessing us during this difficult time.
