With events that have happen this last week it hard for me to not express my love and gratitude for the people that mean the very most to me in my life! I am so very thankful for my family for the love and joy they bring to me. I feel so truly blessed to have been raised by wonderful parents and that I have a great husband and three wonderful girls!

This is my Shanny and her beautiful brown eyes. Shanny is a mama's girl. When she wakes up in the morning she wants to cuddle and get warm. I still love snuggling next to her and feeling her breath on my face. Love U!
I am thankful for Loni's parents Elenoa and Amini. I am grateful that they raised such a wonderful man, that has become the best husband and father to our family.
This is my honey bunny. Oh how I love him. His favorite saying is failure is not a option. He is such a hard worker and can fix anything, I have never seen him give up on anything. He has the biggest heart of anyone I have ever known. He treats all of us girls like we are royalty. I could never say enough good things about this guy!
Here we are...I think T was taking the picture.
Aren't we cute?

This is Loni and Ana in Vegas. Don't you love her face!
She was upset because she wanted to take the picture. I love my little Ana Finau. She always has something funny to say and keeps me on my toes. Sunday when I was getting ready for work she said, Mom where are you going? I said, to work. She said in the saddest voice possible, Mom who is going to feed me? It was funny she always has food on the mind.
This is Loni and Shanny. Look at that smile!
This is my Mommy and Daddy. I could never express how much I love them. They are the greatest parents. I am so thankful that they have always stuck by my side and my decisions in life. I love them so much!
This is Shanny again trying to do cannon balls in the pool!

Tilisa and Dad. Probably one of my favorite pictures! It always makes me smile to hear Loni tell our girls he loves them. But I love seeing the love that they have for each other!
This is my Grandpa Powell with Tilisa on her blessing day. My grandpa passed away December of 2006. My grandparents have always been the greatest examples to me in my life. I learned a lot of life lessons from them. My grandpa had the most beautiful prayers and the greatest testimony. He made me want to be a better person. I love you grandpa!
This is me and my little T. I am so very thankful for her and the beautiful person she is. She is such a great example to her sisters but to me as well. Every day she teaches me patience and understanding. Love you T.
Shanny and T
Just a random picture of them being goofy!
I just want to thank my Heavenly Father and tell him how much I love my family and my friends. I love being a mom. I love being able to walk in and kiss there faces while they are sleeping. I love hearing there laughs and giggles and how excited they get about certain things. I love being a wife and being able to have someone there to always talk too and share stories and dumb jokes with, and to always have someone to keep me warm. Thank you for giving them to me. Thank you for letting me be there wife and mom. I need them and I am so very thankful I can share this life with them! I am truly blessed!

Camie Fackrell Vigil

As many of you know there was a plane crash in Moab this weekend. A childhood friend of mine was killed and I just wanted to express my love for her. Camie and Jodi were actually my brother Jaysons age. We use to go down to there house and ride horses and Camie and Jodi were the first ones to style my hair in a cool way! Camie was always so nice and friendly. Camie and Jodi let me tag along with them on several occasions and they made me feel so cool!

Camie's mom Jolynn is best friends with my mom. I am so sorry that there family is going through this. Something that kept playing in my head over and over was the Michael McLean song Together Forever. I would just like to share a little of the song with you.

Well it's hard to say goodbye and let go
And it's hard to see it end,
When the memories We've just made
May never happen again.

But it's harder for time to ever erase
The together times we've shared.
So, when we're apart, Remember
all the love we've shared together
And for all that love,
Thank the Lord above
Who showed us the way-
That we can be
Together Forever Someday.
We will be
Together Forever Someday.

I am so thankful for the Fackrell's and for the wonderful friends that they have been to my family through the years. I pray for all of you that you will be comforted during this time. We love you always and are grateful for the memories we have of dear sweet Camie!

What a Weekend!!

As many of you know we are trying to sell our home. To anyone that is thinking of doing this....I do not recommend it! LOL! Today was our open house, and we did have a good turn out so now I guess we just hope and pray that someone will buy our home! Loni has been working so hard working 12 hour shifts then coming home and putting in another couple hours on the house. He never complains and still always has time for me and the girls! He is wonderful!
Tilisa starts school on Monday. She is very excited to start second grade. I still get emotional thinking that my little girl is in second grade. Where does the time go? Tonight I was getting ready for work and I walked in Shanny's room to turn off the light when she popped out of the sheets, she was crying. I asked her what was wrong and she said she missed grandma. I asked her which one, and she said both of them. I told her to call grandma so she would feel better, and she did after hearing there voices. I must say this is one thing about Shannan that always makes my heart melt. She is always so concerned for others and has the biggest heart. I love my Shanny Wanny. The same thing happend the other night with Ana. As most of you know we go every where as a family, so the other night we were working so late on the house that I told Loni that we could just run and get something for dinner. He wanted to stay home so the girls came with me. Well of coarse we were dancing to the music as we always do in the car, when all of a sudden I hear crying. I turned down the radio and asked Ana what was wrong? I miss Daddy! I tried not to laugh because my goodness we were just going to KFC!!! LOL. She is to funny, Daddy is her best fwend(friend)! Well ten minutes later we were home and she was fine after she ran and gave Loni a big hug and kiss.
I love my girls and my honey bunny. I am so grateful for them and the joy they bring to my life each and every day. I am so thankful they keep my on my toes, they are so much fun!

Untill next time...have a Happy Day!!!
