Words can't even describe

My sister is MY HERO!!

On Saturday Brian Jr., Katie, Lacy and Susan were swimming in the pool while my mom, Chantal and Clarissa were sitting on the porch watching them. Hugo and Bou were playing in the yard watching the kids swim. They told all the kids in the pool that if Hugo or Bou were to get too close to the pool or to fall in to scream like crazy HUGO/BOU ARE IN THE POOL over and over. Well Hugo was close and having a ton of fun taking turns pushing the kids in and they were all laughing like crazy. Well one time he pushed Lacy in and she must have grabbed his hands or shirt and taken him in with her (on accident). They all did their jobs perfectly and screamed like crazy, HUGO FELL IN THE POOL!! Now all three of the adults were watching carefully but none of them saw him fall in so it was so lucky they screamed. Chantal was the farthest from the pool, but with out one single moments hesitation she jumped out of her seat, hoped over the table, ran to the pool, leaped over the spa and jumped in fully dressed to rescue my bobbing 2 year old who does not know how to swim. She said he was holding his breath and when he got out he didn't cough up any water, but even at this very moment I can barely contain my emotions. I am so lucky to have a sister that reacted so fast. I was in the house doing some other work and when Clarissa came in screaming my name and I heard Hugo crying all I could think of was what would I do without that sweet boy! Thank you so much Chantal, words can not even describe my gratefulness to you. I always hope that I would be the one who's pants are on fire, who jumps up out of my seat and rescues the baby... I still hope I am. I know Chantal is. I have always wanted to be like Chantal, I still do, I always will, she is amazing, she is my Hero. I love you, thank you for saving my precious Hugo!

Hug your kids a little longer tonight, kiss them, talk a little sweeter and thank your Heavenly Father for all the blessing and miracles he does give you! (like sisters like Chantal)

This clip reminds me of Chantal. No Hesitation... If you watch Modern Family, this clip is so much funnier. (yes Elise... I'm hooked!)

Happy Birthday!

April 7th was Adelia's Birthday (second from the right) isn't she gorgeous? She lives in Idaho and we all miss her and her family like crazy! I talked to her on her birthday and it made me miss her and her babies even more. She is talented and always so perfectly put together. To be honest she has always intimidated me with how perfect she is! But she is also so down to earth, she always makes you feel like you are her best friend. She is giving and sweet and I love her to death. I can't wait to see you this summer, I love you! Happy Birthday.
Heather's Birthday was on April 9th. (far right). Heather is hilarious and funny and she totally gets me :) She used to live just a couple doors down and I totally miss it. It was the best thing in the world to have family so close and she really became my best friend. She is helpful and sweet and always gives with out ever asking or expecting anything in return. She has more patience than anyone I know! She is a beautiful, strong, gorgeous woman, friend, wife, mother and example, I love her to death. Happy Birthday girl!

Israel is turning 5 tomorrow. I haven't seen him in over a year I think... I can't even remember. Well I see him all the time via Skype.. but its not the same. They are kinda sorta planning on coming in May/June and I swear if they don't, I might just have a nervous break down. I miss those boys like crazy. Israel is such a witty funny sweet obedient Mama's boy. I love him so much. He is sweet and kind, just look at him! Don't you just want to kiss his face, I do!!! Right now! I wish I could be there to give him a big Birthday hug. I love all my brothers and sisters (blood and in-laws) but mostly when they move my heart breaks because I miss those babies!!!! Come home to me Israel and give me a kiss. I love you little man, Happy Birthday!

Since Easter fell on Conferencce weekend this year, my kids wore their new Easter outfits last week. We quickly snapped a few shots of them before running off to church. Aren't they the cutest?

Spring Break

For spring break we took a much needed trip to Huntington Beach. We stayed in Aunt Sharon's pop up trailer on their drive way and it was HEAVEN! We honestly loved every minute of it. Shawn's mom drove with us and she slept with Jack inside so it was really perfect. Hugo and Lacy both slept perfect!
While we were there we... went to main street and to the pier and happened to go during a fun kite flying festival. We took Lacy and Hugo to Disneyland for the first time. Jack was lucky enough to stay home with all his Aunties and his Mimi. He was really happy about it!! Aunt Lorie works at Disneyland so she got us in. She is amazing! She got Lacy a lanyard with pins on it and Lacy was so excited trading pins all day. She came in with us and went through the castle and a couple rides. Lacy adores all her aunts (as do I). Thanks Aunt Lorie, we LOVE YOU!!Lorie's son Tyler came with us too. It was so nice to have an extra pair of eyes to help out with the kids. He held Hugo a ton, Hugo just loves him! Thanks for coming, you were a great help and you are also so much fun.We got to meet Pluto, Mickey Mouse and Peter Pan, we saw Goofy, Buzz Lightyear and Minnie Mouse from a far as well.We could not go all the way to Cali and not go to the beach. It was FREEEEZING, but we could still not pass it up. We were the only ones on the beach that day and it was gorgeous!
I already can't wait to go back when its a little warmer and lay around on the beach all day soaking in the warm sun and letting the waves beat me up!
ps... we forgot our camera so all of these pictures are taken with Shawn and my i-phones. Not bad, eh?
