Reagans birthday






























Reagan turned 2 last week. He has had such a crazy year. In February he was diagnosed with diabetes and in the hospital he went down to 20 lbs. It is 7 months later and he is now 32 lbs. He is 85% in weight, 80% in height and 75% in head. He is so much fun and is as crazy as his sisters. He loves Batman and anything with animals. He is always in a good mood and is so sweet to everyone. I don't know what I would do without my little buddy.

Bens Birthday






















Ben turned 29 this year. I can't believe it, when I met him he was 21 just off his mission. So much has happened in 8 years. We got married, had 5 kids, moved ten times, lived in two states and I have loved every minute of it. Don't get me wrong, it has been hard to get through some of it but so worth it to be with my best friend forever. Living in AZ has been one of the hardest things we have had to do. It is no secret that we do not love it here and that we can't wait to get home to Utah but Ben and I have grown so much together here. Our marriage is so much stronger and we have done it all together. I can't decide what I love most about Ben. Here are a couple things:

1. He is the funniest person I have ever met. He can make me laugh over the dumbest things and when I am mad one word from him makes me laugh.
2.He loves his children so much and is so patient with them. He lets them climb and jump all over him and loves every minute.
3.He loves me. That is not the easiest thing to do but he does it everyday. He loves me no matter how crazy I get or how big I get in my pregnancy. He loves me more than anything and that counts for a lot.
4. He is a hard worker. He tries so hard to do well in school and it shows. He is so smart and good at everything he tries to do.
5. When you get Bens trust and loyalty it is unwavering.
6. He is so handsome. I think he is the most perfect man in the world.

These are just a few of the wonderful things I can say about Ben. He is my everything and I love him so much.

For Bens birthday I got him a new Hawaiian shirt and a Rubik's cube. My parent got him, Reagan and Lincoln BYU shirts. The girls got him bags of candy and he got some much need money from his family. Sorry I looks freaky in the picture. This was the day I got home from the hospital and I was in much need of a shower and sleep. We love you all.
