WE ARE LEAVING TODAY TO GO TO CALIFORNIA AND SPEND CHRISTMAS WITH CLINT'S FAMILY THIS YEAR! THIS YEAR WILL BE VERY DIFFICULT FOR ALL OF US BECAUSE OF THE RECENT LOSS OF PAUL IN SEPTEMBER. BUT WHAT MAKES IT A LITTLE EASIER IS THE REASON FOR THE SEASON...... OUR SAVIOR JESUS CHRIST. HE HAS MADE IT POSSIBLE FOR US TO SEE ALL OF OUR LOVED ONES AGAIN! AND AS HARD AS IT IS NOW TO BE WITHOUT THEM, ESPECIALLY DURING THE HOLIDAY SEASON I KNOW AND MY FAMILY KNOWS THAT WE WILL BE WITH THEM AGAIN! I LOVE MY SAVIOR VERY MUCH I TREASURE THIS GIFT. MORE NOW THAN I EVER THOUGHT POSSIBLE. BE WITH YOUR LOVED ONES THIS YEAR AND REMEMBER THE TRUE MEANING OF CHRISTMAS.... OUR SAVIOR JESUS CHRIST.

MY SISTER IS ONE PERSON IN MY LIFE I CAN ALWAYS COUNT ON. EVEN WHEN THERE ARE A HUNDRED THINGS GOING ON IN HER LIFE. IF I HAVE SOMETHING GOING ON IN MINE THAT'S NOT WORKING OUT I KNOW SHE WILL DROP EVERYTHING TO COME AND HELP ME. SOMETIMES WE DO HAVE OUR PROBLEMS BUT WHAT SISTERS DON'T! AND THEY ARE FIXED WITHIN MINUTES. TODAY I HAD A VERY HEARTFELT CONVERSATION WITH MY SISTER..... FILLED WITH TEARS AND EMOTION WHICH MOST ARE (THAT'S JUST THE KINDA GIRLS WE ARE) THIS YEAR HAS BEEN VERY HARD ON THE BOTH OF US (ESPECIALLY OUR HUSBANDS) I WANT HER TO KNOW HOW MUCH STRESS AND AGONY I KNOW I HAVE PUT HER THROUGH. AND I AM SO THANKFUL FOR THE LOVE THAT SHE HAS GIVEN ME AND MY LITTLE PRESLEE! THIS TRIAL WE HAVE BEEN BLESSED WITH AT THE SAME TIME I BELIEVE AND KNOW IS SO THAT WE WILL GROW CLOSER TOGETHER NOT FARTHER APART! I LOVE YA TAL! I HOPE YOU KNOW THAT! I AM SO THANKFUL FOR ALL THE HELP YOU HAVE GIVEN US THIS LAST COUPLE OF MONTHS. THE SUPPORT EVERTHING!! THINGS ARE GOING TO GET BETTER. WE WILL LOOK BACK ON THIS SOON AND WE WONT BELIEVE HOW MUCH STRENGTH WE HAVE GAINED FROM GOING THROUGH IT ALL! THANK YOU FOR BEING A WONDERFUL SISTER!

ITS BEEN FOUR WONDERFUL YEARS OF MARRIAGE FOR CLINT AND I!! OCTOBER 14TH 2005 WE WERE SEALED TOGETHER!! I DIDNT HAVE AN WEDDING PICS ON THE COMPUTER SO I HAD TO USE THE PROPOSAL PHOTO. OUR FAMILY HAS HAD A VERY HARD YEAR WITH MY MOM GETTING BREAST, ME BEING ILL, AND NOW THE LOSS OF CLINT'S FATHER. 2009 HAS REALLY BEEN A STRUGGLE FOR US EMOTIONALLY. WE HAVE REALLY TRIED TO CLING TOGETHER AND STAY BONDED. THROUGH EVERYTHING WE WILL ALWAYS HAVE EACH OTHER NO MATTER WHAT. I LOVE CLINT MORE AND MORE EACH DAY. HE HAS BEEN SO STRONG THROUGH EVERYTHING AND REALLY BEEN MY ROCK. I LOVE YOU SWEETHEARTS ALWAYS AND FOREVER!!!

Daddy and Pressle went swimming one evening the pool was a little to cold for me to get in but i loved watching the two of the laugh and enjoy themselves. We never thought that Preslee would get in because it was a little cold but she dove right in. She loved spending all that extra time with her dad, and i loved watching!!!!
We also got the chance to go to Disneyland and Sea world! We had so much fun!!! We decided to get in as much fun as possible before Clint starts school in August!

PRESLEE FINALLY GOT TUBES PUT IN HER EARS!! SHE HAS HAD CHRONIC EAR INFECTIONS SINCE SHE WAS 4MONTHS OLD. SHE WAS SUCH A BRAVE LITTLE GIRL. SHE WAS NOT VERY HAPPY WITH MOMMY WHEN I HAD TO HAND HER OFF TO A STRANGER AND STILL NOT HAPPY WITH ME WHEN SHE CAME OUT OF ANASTASIE BUT YOU CAN ALREADY TELL ITS MADE A DIFFERENCE IN HER. WHEN WE HAD TAKEN HER IN FOR THE SURGERY SHE HAD BEEN OFF HER ANTIBIOTICS FOR 2 DAYS FOR A PAST EAR INFECTIONS AND HER EARS WERE ALREADY INFECTED AGAIN.

Yesterday at church was a day I really needed. The past couple of months have been very difficult for my family. My mom..... who is my strength and my teacher and dosent even know it sometimes was diagnosed with Breast cancer. My goal was to never let her see me cry, to be there for her every step of the way and help her through everything just like she has helped me through life. While my mom was seeing doctors and making appointments, going to MRIs i noticed this strange neck pain i was having I was having i couldn't turn my head in either direction. In my head I thought I may have picked Preslee up wrong. So a few days go by and I start to feel the symptoms of a sinus infection. Well I saw a doctor who gave me some medicine and before I know it I'm in the emergency room getting lumbar punctures. I ended having to stay about 3 days and it happend to be right over Christmas. Turns out I have Psuedo Tumor Cebri. My body is senses a tumor in my brain thats not there(good news) but they dont know what causes it.(bad news) I just have to take some medicine to keep my spinal fluid at a normal level or I get this out of control headaches. But what I learned through all this is the love of family is so great. MY wonderful husband who layed with me in my hospital bed on Christmas day instead of our new house and without our daughter, he stayed just to hold me while we cried, we still have each other clint told me. He was and is my strength everyday!!! I love him with all my HART!!!!! My mom who has breast cancer blow drying hair because the pain was to bad to flip my head over. My wonderful sister and best friend cooking such great meals for us and giving Preslee a Proper Christmas Morning!!!! Tyler and Tippy thanks for coming and visiting so good to see you and growing tummy!!! love you guys!! Ann thanks for taking on Preslee when you had the whole family there. I know you loved it. I love you. Thank You for the flowers. Burke and Nikki thanks for the yummy meal and girls thanks the yummy cookies and beautiful notes. Thanks for all the prayers!!
MY Heavenly loves my so much and I know that through all this I will grow stronger and be a better person who will one day be able to help someone return. This year in relief society its all based on HOPE so its the year for me. The lord knew i was holding out my hand asking for some and her it comes. I love my savior Jesus Christ. Preslee and Clint...... I love you more than words can say not day goes by that I don't think it. We have our rough days but I love you both with all my HART!!!!! We will get through this together!!!!!!
HAD TO GET THIS OUT!! SORRY
