To This End Was I Born

Every once and a while (usually Sunday's) we put this on (mainly for the kids) to keep things quiet while we play a game or want some quiet time. They LOVE this movie! What really surprises me is how much they know about the Savior and what he went through.

A few Sunday's ago Brooke got excited to see this movie because she said "He died so we can have our bodies back." What Philosopher or "bible expert" can simply admit that to you? It's a simple answer! Jesus suffered for our sins and died so we can have our bodies back! A 5 year old explained it so simply!

Happy 1st Birthday, Elise!

A year ago I gave birth to a beautiful baby girl! So healthy, and so chunky! My biggest baby yet at 9lbs 5oz 21 in!

Elise, you have brought us so much joy and laughter! We are so happy to have you as a part of our family!

We love you so much Elise Tiffany!

Happy Birthday Matt!

What can I say about this man that you already don't know? I love him more then words can say.

Here are some things I love about him!
  • He's fluent in Spanish. He served his mission in El Salvador.
  • He's the third child out of 7 children in his family.
  • He's amazing at the piano.
  • He doesn't just study things, he masters them.
  • When we were first talking to each other he called me Melanie (once)! I still tease him about it to this day! ha
  • He may not be the most observant person, but he focuses where needs be.
  • He got a 3.9 (so close to a 4.0) this last semester, even though he has a wife, kids and a job! I could NEVER do that.
  • He's getting his Masters in Marriage and Family counseling.
  • His goal is to be a Chaplain in the Army :o)
  • He says he reminds him of Mr. Darcy, so intense, so giving, yet so misunderstood.
  • He could eat pizza everyday for the rest of his life and be happy!
  • He sings opera!
  • His favorite singer is Jose Carreras (one of the three tenors).
  • He's a history buff! He knows too much.
  • He's a great dad!
  • He's such a romantic guy!
  • He's a self motivator. He actually motivates me, I need more help in that area.
  • He can think up of games for the kids at the drop of the hat, and they love it, No matter how crazy it is!
  • He has piercing steel blue eyes!
  • He holds conversations in his sleep!
  • He loves spicy food. He once ate 6 or 7 hot hot peppers in El Salvador and beat his companion, who was from I think Guatemala. He likes to brag about that one...
  • He's the creative one, I'm the artistic one.
  • We are often on the same wavelength. We sometimes finish each others sentences!
  • He's a walking GPS! I know I will NEVER get lost with him around!
  • He will do whatever it takes to take care of this family! That's a rare quality these days.
  • He's one sexy hot tamale
Happy Birthday Matt! Although we can't be with you to spoil you and take care of you today, I hope you have a great day :o) We love you more then words can say <3
