Happy Birthday Noah!!

Happy Birthday,Noah!! I hope you have a wonderful 7th Birthday!!I can't believe you are already 7!You are such a sweet boy.You always help Mommy when she needs you.You make me laugh as well as everyone around you. I will never forget when you came and joined our family here on Earth. It was Thanksgiving night 2001.Daddy,Caston and I had just gotten home from Grandma Peterson's house.We had Thanksgiving dinner with the Peterson's and the Dastrup Family.All of us were anticipating your birth the next morning.See it was 2 weeks over the estimated due date and the doctors were going to induce Mommy the next morning so we could meet you. Anyway Mommy got ready for bed and I sat down on the bed(it was midnight by that time) to go to sleep when my water broke! You were on your way!Right away, Mommy and Daddy called Grandma Dastrup to come over to watch Caston while we went to the hospital to have you.3 1/2 hours on November 23,2001 at 3:26am you were finally in my arms! You came so fast Mommy didn't get any pain medication!But as soon as you were in my arms ,all I could feel was happiness!You make us so proud Noah. You are an amazing person. When you want to learn something you learn quickly.You potty trained the fastest (1 week and you were trained completely).When you were 3 1/2 and wanted to ride on a two wheeler bike like all the other kids you did it right away like it was effortless. You are my best cleaner.Your organization skills are amazing! I can't wait to continue to watch you grow and learn.You are SPECIAL! You are so LOVED by so many,Noah.I love you,Noah! Happy birthday my sweet boy.

New Kids on The Block Concert!!

We had a blast!!My sister Carol and I went to Nkotb Concert last night. What fun!! Better than I even expected. We thought it would be fun to go see them since 19years ago we saw them when I was in 6th grade. It was my 1st concert! This weekend was also my sister Carol's Birthday. We weren't gonna go at first because we didn't want to spend alot of money on tickets,since we are both on a tight budget at the moment. Then I thought..hmmm. I wonder if anyone is selling them for cheap on Ksl. Sure enough,this lady had bought some during the presale,but then later won some more on a radio station! What a steal,she was selling them only for $25 each ticket! These were not bad seats either.So we bought them from her and had a blast at the concert.Natasha Bedingfield opened for them and she was awesome as well! What an amazing voice she has! The New Kids were AWESOME and definately still got it!! I love you Joey!!=)

Winter has arrived!!!

I am so excited!! I love the Winter! I love having everything look like a winter wonderland! I love comfy clothes, comfort foods and hot drinks to warm up to! The only thing I don't love is driving on unplowed roads. I hate it! Here's a few pictures I took this morning of what I woke up to! Happy Winter all!

So......It looks like we have a new President. I will be honest I am not happy at all.Not that we had awesome choices to begin with.But I definately felt more comfortable with John MCcain being President than Obama.I just feel the Adversary is winning lately.There is so much corruption and sadness in the world.Specially with people trying to make gay marriage legal.That breaks my heart that people are trying to corrupt the sanctity of marriage. I am scared for my kids and what they are going to have to deal with.If the World is like this when they are little what is it gonna be like when they are older.My only comfort is we always have the Lord to turn to. I am so grateful to have my beliefs and my testimony.
