Evan's prayer

part of Evan's prayer today .......

"Thank you that my mom is in love with me"

THAT makes me so happy!

do you like to feel good??

There are some things I have seen lately that just make me feel good.  I wanted to share them with you because who doesn't need a little sunshine in their life??

This is exactly what I hope my life will be.
I can't believe I'm already to the short hair phase of my life!!!!!

My sister sent this to us.  It is so beautiful!!

WARNING:  You WILL cry!!!  We watched this at a Muscular Dystrophy camp out a week and a half ago.  For someone who has a son who is disabled .... it touches my heart in more ways than I can even express!  Enjoy

So one of the things about moving is the need to cleanse.  I am feeling a deep desire to cleanse anything  and everything.  One of those things is the camera on our cell phones.  We both finally added the pictures from our camera and I wanted to share just some of my favorite from the summer.

 crazy how similar these boys look

Landon put his lion in timeout ... it was so funny!

 One of my favorite things that I tell all MOMS about are nail decals.  I have been using these for almost a year.  My friend tried them and, of course, LOVES them.  Mine are the leopard print, she chose the houndstooth pattern.

 This is a picture of a GREAT man!!!!!!

We sold cupcakes for Safeway as a thank you for our elevator.  Evan was an incredible little salesman.

 THIS is how our family has been living for the past 2.5 weeks.  In the old house and the new house we have all been living in boxland.  Hopefully we will be out of it again soon ... and then ... never ever again!!!!

I'm such a boob!!!

Summer is over :-(

Justin stayed in Montana with Landon on Labor Day. (more on that later) Evan and I had an Evan/Mama date day. Evan really wanted to go to the Dinosaur Museum so that is what we did. It was such a gorgeous day and ended up being a perfect day as well. We slept in, had a picnic, went through the museum at Evan's pace, signed up to make a fossil and drove home to get to sleep early.

It was a perfect little day for us and a great last day before school started.

Yesterday was a HUGE day for Evan. We had our clinic day at the hospital. That means a really long day for us. It went well and everything is going really well for him. We had some good long talks with the doctors that we needed to have some good long talks with and did some blood work, got new velcro on our braces. After 4 hours at the hospital we were still able to make it to an hour of school.

I can't believe how much Evan has grown!!!! It blows my mind!!!! He is such a little man now. I put him on the bus today and he couldn't have been more excited! I, on the other hand, couldn't have been more conflicted. I am so excited for him. I know school is a good thing for him, BUT ................ I just want to freeze time. I struggle with my kids growing up. Obviously I do want them to grow up, I just really love my little kids. I love my time with them, and I LOVED having them with me all day during the summer.

I cried as the bus drove away with my smiling, happy, wonderful son. I love you Evan. I hope you have a GREAT school year!!!

Evan and Miss. Kyla
now I need to plan an Landon/Mama date.

Josh Groban sweat on me!!!!

So pretty much I have had the BEST birthday week of my entire life!!!!! I mean I seriously couldn't have asked for anything better to kick of my final year in my 20's.

I have so many things to say about my birthday week, but since I am unable to download any of my pictures yet I will just talk about the day before my birthday.

I knew we were going somewhere. Justin told me to dress up. That is it!

We get to the saddledome and I start to get an idea of who we are seeing. Justin had me guess.

Justin: "so your hint is that it is a boy, and you really like him"
Kira: "have I dreamt about him??"
Justin: "I don't know, maybe we should turn around right now ;-)"
Kira: "is he a singer that i have been in LOVE with since before I loved you?"
Justin: "I don't know. I'm starting to question getting these tickets."
Kira: "does his name rhyme with Smosh Smoban?"

As soon as he spilled the beans I got butterfly's, I couldn't stop smiling, and I started to question my choice of outfit and wish that I had the time to do my hair. Almost immediately after that I began to grieve the fact that Justin didn't tell me to grab our camera.

And then ............

We went to find our seat. We walked closer and closer and closer to the front. Finally we pause at ROW 6!!!!!!!!!!!

How lucky am I that one of my friends was sitting in the row directly in front of us and she didn't forget her camera, so she emailed me her pics. Thank you Katie!!!

This concert was a dream come true for me! I have wanted to see Josh in concert since the summer of 2002!!!! It was 2 hours of bliss for me. I can't believe that we were sitting so close I could see every single detail, every line of sweat coming down his face. Josh even ran right by us while picking people out of the audience. Instead of us he picked a couple in the row behind us to go up on stage. It was just amazing!!!!

Heaven Heaven Heaven!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
