An Amazing Man!

My dear Grandpa is fighting for his life at the Huntsman Cancer Institute. I feel so blessed to live close enough to spend some time with him. Through the radiation and chemo, he has done quite well, but has gone down hill rather rapidly since he was diagnosed. I got to spend some time with him yesterday, and had a flood of emotions come over me. He is so special. I just love him so much and feel so privileged to be his grand daughter. He truly is an example to me in every way.

A few attributes I don't ever want to forget about him are:
Selflessness, hard working, patriotic, intelligent, healthy and active, family oriented, musical, whiskery kisses, traveling machine, dedicated, spiritual, service- especially for the church, good record keeper, fun loving, and always making me feel so special!
He's simply the best, I couldn't ask for anything better. Hang in there Grandpa, I sure love you with all my heart! Thanks for everything.

"Vanilla Weiner Dogs"

So the other day Max wanted some vienna sausages with Sam and I knew exactly what he wanted, but I let him try to explain them to me. Here's how it went:

Max: Mom can I have some of those vanilla weiner dogs?
Me: I don't know what you're talking about what color are they?
Max: They are a human color and they kind of are the shape of string cheese but smaller.
Me: Oh I know what you want...You want some vienna sausages.
Max: Yeah that's what I want!

It gave me a good laugh inside!

Handsome Boys

We just got back from a weekend in Salt Lake. We weren't planning on staying for Sunday though, so Mom and I went and bought the boys some church clothes. They looked so handsome in their matching outfits.

My main SQUEEZE!

Chillin' in the car seat!

Look at how different these two are.

Happy boy...he loves dancing to music and playing peek-a-boo with me in the rear view mirror!

Growing Up

So It's been a while. We've had a lot of fun this summer playing outside with family and friends. This top picture is of Max, Cecilia and Samson with their cousins Molly, Emma and Jack.

Daddy and Mommy with their chunky boy! We really can't get enough of this guy. He is so sweet and really a joy to be around. His soft voice and curls along with his big blue eyes and long lashes truly melt my heart. Did I mention I love him a little bit?

We hope you've all had a great summer as well. Football season here we come! More pics to come soon.
