So Aspen has recently become quite the dancer and she LOVES music! My sister posted a video of her and her "knee dancing" moves. If I was more computer savvy I would have it right here for you but I'm not so go check it out on Bre's blog :)  

While you are there you should check out her other posts as well she is an amazing writer :)

I received this quote from my boss, Scott Moss, a few weeks ago and it really hit home. I let fear control my decisions way to often.
Enjoy :)

Fear is the big freezer in this world!
It keeps people from living the lives of their dreams, from shining their light, performing at
their peak and, ultimately, it keeps them from realizing God!
It is not possible to live in fear and at the same time realize God.
As a matter of fact, every time you give into fear, in that very moment you are losing
awareness of God's presence in your mind.
The first key to releasing fear and worry is to always own your personal power and selfmastery.
The second you lose your personal power and self-mastery, fear-based thinking and
feeling will begin to creep back into your consciousness. This is the first key!
Personal power and self-mastery are nothing more than an attitude that you hold in your
mind, which you start your day with and keep affirming to yourself all day long whenever you
feel the need to.
You will immediately feel better every time when you do a personal power and self-mastery
affirmation. You must be in control of your thoughts, feelings, emotions, energy and physical
body to not have fear!

Reading is my out, my sanctuary
I love to write
I LOVE my family, they mean everything to me
I love being a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints
I love that you can study and study and study this gospel and still learn something new and insightful everyday
I love to learn
I love to create new things

I love my husband he is amazing.
I love to laugh.
I am carefree & laid back (no drama please!)
I love Saint George and can't think of anywhere else I would want live (unless my family up and moved somewhere else)
I wish I worked out more, obviously because I want to lose weight but more than that I want it for a stress reliever and I know I would feel so much better (hmm why am I not doing it then?)
I LOVE my baby girl and being a mom. She is my life!
My favorite quote "Life isn't about finding yourself, it's about creating yourself"

So I haven't talked much about my family yet but I have the greatest family! We are very close knit and we have alot of fun together! I am the oldest of 4 kids and I seriously look up to my sisters & baby brother. They are such an inspiration to me and I try to be a better person everyday because of them. I seriously couldn't ask for a better family.

Baby Overload!

Her very first pig tails! and she is only 4 months old!

Chubby naked baby with crazy crazy hair!

Loving her easter bunny

Its all smiles with this munchkin!

So Aspen is getting so big! And I don't just mean big as in growing up big she is getting CHUUUBY!
I swear everyday her michelin arms get bigger and the chub creases get deeper. She now has little baby boobies and her cheeks are growing non stop! You can't help but kiss them!

She is laughing, talking up a storm and getting so loud. She is definitely spoiled but who wouldn't spoil that little monster. Everyone is always telling us what a good baby she is and how lucky we are.
TRUST ME I KNOW! we are very very blessed to have her in our lives!

She is just figuring out how to play. She will put her chubby little fingers in your mouth over and over and over again so you can chew on them. When I have her sitting on my knees she will lift her little sausage feet up to my mouth so I will blow raspberrys on them. And her favorite game is pulling anything she can get her hands on over her face, hold her breath, flail her arms around and then pull it off and grin. Sometimes it gets to far over her head and she panics cus she cant' get it off. Its sad how funny that is!

She is definietly the highlight of my life!

Scripture A Day

"But he said, Yea rather, blessed are they that hear the word of God, and keep it." Luke 11:28

I just installed the scripture a day app on my phone and so far I am loving it and this is only my 3rd day. This was the scripture today and I have to say that it rings loud and clear to me. You couldn't get a more simple, true statement than that! If you "hear the word of God", really hear it in heart then you will KEEP IT!
