The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints

I am member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. I am so grateful for the restoration of the gospel and the joy that it brings to my life. I know that Jesus Christ is my Savior and that he lived and died for me, and for all of us. I know that I have a Heavenly Father who loves us and has laid the Plan of Salvation so that we could return to him. I know that Joseph Smith was an instrument in Gods hands in restoring the Gospel of Jesus Christ and I know that President Thomas S. Monson is our modern day prophet that receives revelation from the Lord today. As I try to follow Christ’s example I can feel his presence more and more in my life through the Holy Ghost. I am so grateful for this knowledge I have. I am so grateful that our families can be together forever through this plan. I love this gospel and I love my Savior.

Smiles and Giggles

I can't take enough pictures of Kaydence. She is getting so big I just can't believe it. She loves to play with her toys, try new foods, stand up like a big person, and loves to be tickled!
We just got back from church, Kaydence loves to look at the other little babies at there. She loves to make faces and noises at the people sitting behind us, she loves attention.
Kaydence is playing with her toys, she is content just sitting on the floor and playing. She loves toys that light up and make noises, she tastes everything that she can get her hands on.
She loves to smile and laugh, I saying "Boo" to her here. We call her "Boo" from Monters Inc. because she always has pig tail and her hair use to be really dark like Boo's.
She is standing up and talking to mommy right here. She can't crawl yet or stand all by herself but she likes to stand up against things.
I am tickling her and she is laughing so much.

Camping in Ashton

We always have fun with our friends in Ashton, it is so gorgeous up there. They always cook with the dutch ovens and we stay up playing mafia and sometimes they hook a TV to their truck and we watch movies under the stars. Arik and Travis were mission buddies we like to take trips up there to see him, his wife Emily, and the whole crowd. There are always at least fifteen people that get together for these trips.
This is Kaydence when she fell asleep on the walk. She look like a little angel when she sleeps. She loves her soft blanket to be pressed against her cheek when she sleeps.
The boys are setting up the tent (Arik, Drew, Jake, and Travis).
There were a lot of mosquitoes outside so we put Kaydence in her playpen and covered it with a blanket so she wouldn't get bitten. It was a success, she doesn't have one mosquito bite.
We went fishing, got a few bites but nothing big enough.
Arik and Travis were being destructive, they were pushing the dead trees down.

Anderson Cove

We went to Anderson Cove with the family and it was Kaydence's first time camping. She loved it! She played with Gavin in the play pen and played on the shore all day. She napped more than normal because she tuckered herself out. We had a fun time on the boat and water skiing. It was the first time I attempted to water ski and I didn't quite get up and that is why there is no picture of me tearing up the wake. Travis did awesome, as usual, he is a pro. We also played in the sand with Kaydence and tried to play in the water. The water was too cold for her so she wasn't a fan. The weather was perfect the whole time, sunny and warm! We ate awesome meals, breakfast lunch and dinner were amazing. We stayed up late playing night games and talking by the campfire. We love camping. The funnest part is just spending time with family!
