Celebrating 14 years!!!!

Lance and I celebrated our 14th anniversary on the 28th of July! I can't believe how the time has flown. It seems like only yesterday that we were dating. I could not have married a better man than Lance. He is such an amazing person and treats me with so much love. He is always putting me first in everything he does. He always remembers all the important dates, (better than me)! He loves our family more than anything and always wants what is best for us. He is the best dad ever to Lexi! She has him wrapped around her finger. He is always saying that someday she won't want him around, so he is taking advantage of this time with her. Lance and I are the best of friends! I couldn't ask for a better companion! (Next year it's Hawaii)!!!!!

Congratulations La!

Dad, Melissa and Mom
Debbie, Melissa and Tricia

Debbie, Tana (our childhood friend), and La

We had a wonderful day today with my sister Melissa. She went through the temple for the first time. What a neat experience it was for her and for our family. I am so happy for her and for her decision to go to the temple. I love my sister so much! We have been so close our whole life. She is just 10 months older then me. My mom raised us kind of like twins. Melissa is one of the sweetest people you will ever meet. She loves everyone and never judges or speaks ill of anyone. I couldn't be more proud to be her sister! I love you sis!

We just had Lances cousin reunion this weekend. His cousins came from Idaho and stayed with us for a few days. We spend all day Saturday at John's house in his pool! It was so hot that we needed the water to keep from frying! We always have a blast with everyone! They are so much fun to be with and such a close family. Thanks for a great weekend!

Birthday cake

I helped my good friend with her daughters Luau birthday party. I told her I would decorate her cake. Her daughter said that she wanted a cake that looked like a wedding cake, of course I'm not really a cake decorator, but I tried my best!

Happy 4th

Lexi got to go to the Stadium of Fire on the 4th of July. She went with some of our friends kids. She seemed to have a lot of fun and rocked out to the Jonas Brothers!

Meet our new family member!


He is such a funny dog!
He loves to wrap his head around her neck!

Well, we finally broke down and let Lexi get a dog! I can't believe I am letting a dog live in my house! He is such a sweetie though, we couldn't have gotten a better dog. Lexi searched all over the internet trying to find the dog that had the conditions I set up, which were; it had to be potty trained and couldn't shed. One night Lance took her to the shelter and found Neco. He had been there for only a week, so we were very lucky. He is a shih Tzu, and the calmest dog ever. I have only heard him bark once in 3 weeks! Lexi is ecstatic! Lance and I said that we are in her good graces for years to come! She did use the only child speech to try and sway me. It must have worked a little bit!
