Lost in Translation...

I seriously feel lost! I keep looking at other peoples blogs and I feel like I have alot to write about. BUT, the words just don't flow! I feel I have missed the opportunity on posting big events that have happened this month. But then I look over my calendar or other journal entries that I have and there were really only two big events...

The first event: Helam turned 2... TWO... But in reality it feels like my baby is 4 going on five.
Then I remember that my baby that is 4 going on 5 is Gannon..

The second event: Emer got Baptised. All I can really tell you about that day, was Helam turned two and I was busy doing so many other things that I feel I cheated my son out of a party. But then again, if he even has a memory of his second birthday it will be that there was a party and hopefully he will remember that he was the center of attention. O WAIT! He was, because he is a million miles and hour and I am sure he stole all of Emers thunder!

The worst part of the day, was that I forgot my camera! SO, I don't have a single picture (at least one that I would have taken) of El and Emer together...
It was an amazing day! Not only did my baby girl get baptised, but I got to hear El's amazing testimony. The love that he has for our children is so amazing! It really is one of the most amazing things I have ever experienced in this world. He is such an amazing person!

I wish I could remember all of the wonderful things that were said on that day. But all I could really think about was this family that I have is awesome!

As I sit here and write this, I just have to post something that I think is so cute. But all of my 2 readers will think i'm a meanypants.. Helam is sick with a cold and a cough.. The thing that is so cute about it is this: When he talks, his voice is all raspy and when he giggles it just makes my heart melt~! He sounds like a 90 old man whos voice box has had its last whisper.. :)

I know! MEAN! But to make it all better, just know this: I have been sick too..

With all of the hussle and bussle of the last month, I have forgotten to tell the Internet that:

EL got a 4.0 last semester! He took 6 classes (18 credits) ALL online!

Whoot, Whoot!

Happy New Year!

Winter! BLAH!!! I am ready for Spring already!

The sun is so awesome today, but it is so deceiving. I feel like we are on the top of the hill looking down towards warmth, fun and life!

I can't wait for all of the amazing things that the spring, summer and fall will have in store for us. I can't wait to be out at the 240. I can't wait to ride 4 wheelers. I can't wait for Helam to eat dirt again.

Speaking of Helam, he turns 2 this week. TWO! I know I say this alot, but how is it he is growing so fast? He is such an amazing person who tries my patients each and every day. He makes me want to pull out all of the gray hairs he is giving me. But I LOVE HIM so much, it makes my heart ache.
Also on Helams birthday, Emer will be getting baptized. She is so excited and so am I!

I love this journey. I love my family. I love winter too, but spring, summer and fall are my true loves!
