Awhile ago Kristen had tagged me on Facebook. I was supposed to do 3 things for 7 days that I'm thankful for. Obviously I didn't. Not that I'm not ungrateful it just took me a while to find time to sit and think of things. So I am going to leave off the obvious like family, church, ect. Here's the list. 1. Wrestling. I know it's a weird thing but I like it, also one of my brothers does too. I feel like it has brought me a little closer to him since now we have a common ground to talk about! 1. Technology. Without you I wouldn't still be such great friends with Kristen 3. I am thankful I share a birthday dinner with my dad every year. I love that man and it makes me feel special to share my birthday with him. (My mom made awesome Italian cream cupcakes and sent extras home with me!) 4. I am thankful my sister is moving back to Louisiana. 5. I am thankful for the gym. I know since we joined I feel a whole lot better in general! 6. I am thankful the girls are in such a great school 7. The mail 8. Restaurants 9. I am thankful for all the hugs and kisses the girls give me. 10. I am thankful this year we are celebrating Trent, Brooklyn, and Sophia's birthday on the same day! 11. Paper plates 12. Best friends 13. Hummas and avocados. These foods are awesome on ANYTHING! 14. Pets. Nothing like nibbles sitting and relaxing in my lap 15. I am thankful for Trent. I know he goes into the obvious family category but I am so thankful he is worthy to baptize Brooklyn in November. 16. I am thankful for the special girls I am over at church. The calling is stressful and overwhelming at times but they really deserve the best and I am trying to give it to them. I have learned so much from them. 17. I am thankful for Justin and his sense of humor. 18. I am thankful for all the people who believe in me and have helped me along the way. 19. I am also thankful for all my failures and the lessons I have learned from them. 20. Washing machines 21. Lastly I am thankful Kristen tagged me and got me thinking of all the things I am thankful for and take for granted.

Tomorrow I will be 30 years old..... I know that's not old by any means. I have spent a little time reflecting over the last year though. I had a lot of goals and plans to accomplish before tomorrow but sadly a lot of them just weren't done. Then I started to wonder what was I doing instead of working on my goals? I was working on spending more quality time with the girls and Trent. I was working at work! I was working in my old church calling and my new activity day calling (those girls have no idea what they are in for!). I have been working on trying to be a better friends to the people I have here and to an amazing friend who lives to far away. So even though I didn't accomplish my written down goals I do feel that I have accomplished quiet a bit! I am looking forward to the next birthday year and all the good and bad it bring! I am also very excited to see my dad on the 29th and enjoy celebrating our birthdays together! I love that man so much!

On Saturday we went to our friends combined birthday party for Breckin and Coleton. The kids had a drive in theater where they got to decorate thei own cars. Sophia made a race car. Racheal gave all the kids tickets for the. To buy for dogs and pop corn and drinks. It was such a great idea. All those kids in one room and most of them sat in their boxes and just watched the movie! Afterwards we went and ate at papis very yummy!

Today was Memorial Day and also the girls awards day. Brooklyn got an A,B honor roll award and an award for highest average in social studies. Sophia got a kindergarten certificate like the rest of the kids. The kindergarten kids sang the cutest songs (same as last year). Trent and I are both very proud of how hard the girls have worked and how well they have done this year. Sophia is already working out of some of Brooklyn's first grade books. Brooklyn wanted to check out after her program but Sophia was pretty insistent on staying. She ended up being the only kid left in her class! She had a great time hanging out with Mrs. Davenport. One and a half days left of school then a fun filled summer with the best baby sitter ever, Livia!!!!
