My friend Sarah asked me if I had done the things that I wanted to do by the time I was this age, but as sad as it is, I didn't really have any goals set for myself. I have started my family and I think that when I was younger, that was pretty much the only thing that I really wanted. Now I don't want you to get me wrong, having a family is a big deal, and I love mine so very much, but what do I want? Where do I want to go? How do I want to raise my family? Do I laugh enough? Do I help my family or the community? What should I do for Dan to make him the happiest husband ever? I think like many people in this world, I just kinda cruise by. I don't take the time to evaluate my life and think of the things that I need or even want to do. When I am with my little girls, they make things so simple. I try to be patient and be like them, because they take in EVERYTHING! They love to learn and laugh and be crazy. Life is so short and yet I take for granted that I am going to wake up in the morning and be there with my family. I guess I need to breath and slow down. I need to be more happy. I need to tell people that I love them. I need to not be so scared of life in general.
Am I crazy for thinking about all this stuff because I turned 28? I don't know, but it can't hurt!

The girls are so different, Hawley was walking all over and playing in the snow. Loving every minute of it.....
Scarlett on the other hand would just stand in one place and not move. She hated every minute that she was outside. What is weird is that the last time it snowed (in September) she absolutely loved playing in the snow. The only thing we can think of, is that she can somehow remember falling into the fire pit and associates that with snow. We don't know, but she hates it now. In the picture she was crying.

It is amazing how talented those people are. I have always wanted to play instruments the way they do, but I know that I don't have the perseverance for it. So for now, I'm good with going to see amazing people play amazing music. It is a very incredible show and I will definitely be going again!!!
P.S. I don't have the pics yet, so I will have to put them up later.

I am thankful for my girls. They keep me on my toes all the time and make me see things that I might not normally see. They are the cutest girls around and make life so much better!
My family members are also something that I am very thankful for. They are very crazy, insane, and fun. They know how to drive me crazy, but they also make me so happy. I know that I would never be the same person without them. I guess that makes me a little crazy, insane, and fun huh!?!
I have so much more that I am thankful for, but it would take forever to write everything. I love everyone and thank you all for everything!!!

Scarlett loves doing whatever her Daddy does. She always looks so cute with the way that she copies him and wants to be with him all the time.
In this picture, Dan was attempting to take a nap and the girls wanted to lay with him. They all have so much fun together. Dan is such a wonderful Dad and the girls love him so much. I am so grateful for all the things that I have in my life. I have been blessed beyond my imagination!

As some of you know, my brother married an absolutely gorgeous girl from Spain. We didn't even get to meet her until after they had already been married for a month or so. (Thanks Ryan ;) ) They were married in Spain and then moved to Utah and have lived here for almost 10 years. (Time goes by so incredibly fast!) They have had their awful moments and their fantastic moments, but they have stuck together and for that I am grateful.
Since Ali was from Spain, she wasn't a citizen of the USA and I am happy to say that she finally took the plunge. She is now a citizen of the United States of America!!! I am so happy for her and I want you to know Ali that I love you so much and I will always be here for you. You are a wonderful sister and I am grateful to have you in my life! Thanks again for letting me share another special moment with you and Ryan. I love you!
