The Coast and Three new posts keep going on!!!

We went to Seaside Oregon on the coast for our anniversary. We took the kids and stayed at a hotel right on the beach it was so pretty and so fun. I didn't get many pictures of Payton because she was cold and didn't want to have much to do with the water but Treyson of course was wanting to run in the freezing cold ocean water and would have been totally soaked if I would have let him. Micah did get some kites for the kids and we flew those at the beach. We then came home on Saturday and had Payton's Birthday party. I wanted to post her party for her special day that is why these posts are out of order. I love the picture below of Treyson it almost looks like he is walking on water. We had so much fun and I don't want Micah's week vacation to end but it is back to the routine tommorow term three and 21 months to go.

Payton had her Birthday Party on Saturday and she invited all her sunbeam class to come. It was a lot of fun and she was very spoiled by all her family and friends. For her party she wanted to have a Strawberry Shortcake theme at home with pizza and a heart cake so that is what we did. We played pin the tail on the donkey and had a pinata.

5 Years and Running!!!!

Micah and I have been married for 5 years On March 23rd. It seems like it has gone by so fast but yet we have been through so much. I can truly say it was the best decision that I ever made and even though marriage is not all extreme bliss I wouldn't trade it for anything. Reflection back on what Micah and I have been through I feel we have been truly blessed and also grown closer in hard times. Here are a few of our accomplishments as a couple and hard ships as well.

Year one!!!!( 2006-2007) - In year one Micah and I got married on Spring break of school. Micah in Nursing school and me in bachelors of nursing school. 3 months later we got pregnant with Payton and we got to go through this together. Me being very sick and trying to do school and work was not easy and it was not easy for Micah either because I was not nice. I finished my Bachelors Degree in December and Our sweet little Payton was born 5 days after our 1st anniversary which we spent of course at home due to me being so pregnant.

YEAR TWO!!! (2007-2008)Year two of course started out with our sweet little Payton and just got better from there. Micah continued to go to school and became and LPN. He was working and I was working and life was really busy. Micah Graduated RN school at the end of this year. I also lost my Granpda Dee this year which was really hard and Micah was there for me sooo much. Boy do I miss him

Year Three!!! ( 2008-2009) - Year three we found out we were pregnant with Treyson and so the whole sickness thing was there all over again but worse this time. I also had a kidney stone for three weeks that I had to have removed. I was sure glad when that was over. I am pretty sure Micah was too. Micah started his Bachelors Program at UVU and Treyson was born in February of 2009 another gift from God.

Year Four!!!(2009-2010) - The kids continued to get big. We began to apply for nurse anesthesia schools all over. Micah Graduated with his bachelors degree in Nursing in December and He got into Oregon Health and Science University. We found this out when we were on our anniversary date it was awesome and a huge relief.

Year Five!!!(2010-2011) We moved to Portland Oregon and Micah Began CRNA School. I got a new job as an RN on a bone marrow transplant floor where I am working nights to support our family. This year has been a good one as well as a challenging one with some hard times. We are extremely busy and our schedules are crazy. The kids are getting sooo big. We also lost Micah's brother in February. This was the hardest time for our family and we are still taking it day by day we love Stephen soo much and miss him like crazy. We know we can see him again one day. I hope many more good years are to come. but as for now we are enduring our busy schedules as usually knowing that the out come will be good and we are truly blessed.
