Happy Birthday Lindsey!

My beautiful, talented, smart, (really smart) (i mean smart like I call her regularly to ask her questions and even if my question is vague she knows the answer) funny, creative and sweet baby sister Lindsey, had her birthday today. To celebrate she had the day off of work and invited us over to swim at her new apartments pool. It was so fun and Halle LOVED it! Here are some cute pics from the day. Taken by my lovely sis.

Aren't my babies so cute! i think so too! :) And could you die at how cute Miller looks in that hat! Oh and yes my Mom is a freak of nature, she just turned 64 and look how amazing she looks!


Results are in . . .

I got the call yesterday with the results. All of the margins were clean and the nodes came back benign, which means I am cancer free! YAY!

I need to thank all of you for your thoughts, prayers and love! I know I was blessed with peace and comfort through all of this which I know was because of all of you. THANK YOU!

I also need to thank my Mom and Dad who have been so supportive and amazing through everything. My Mom litteraly took over as mother for Miller during my surgeries and while I have been recovering. She had to take him to the doctor and would wake up in the night with him. She is so amazing and i love her so much and could never thank her enough!

I also need to tell my husband how much i love him and appreciate him. He has had to carry the weight of the realty of what could be through all of this. I love you Russ and thank you!


4th Weekend

Wow the 4th of july weekend was crazy! Russ took friday and monday off so we had lots of time for adventure.

We watched the Sugar House Fireworks from our boat which was parked on the street, best seats in the house! That is Halle's face she makes when she doesn't want to smile at the camera.

On Sunday we went to Russ' parents for dinner and then went over to his Sisters for fireworks. I used the night vision setting on the camera to get these cool shots. I am pretty proud of myself!

Then we went to the Zoo. Halle loved all the animals!

Then we went to the Tennis Club for some swimming. Halle is like a fish, she loves the water and has NO fear of it.


Results . . .

So we went to find out the results of my surgeries today and of course the pathology tests weren't done yet, so we won't find out until monday. Classic really, I'm not surprised. oh well i get the whole weekend to not know if it is bad news and can continue to coast on my positive attitude vibes! We'll let you know as soon as we find out!

Gross out warning . . . do not scroll down if you don't want to see my battle wounds.

Click on the image if you want to see it close up, sorry it isn't very good, but it is what it is.



Just wanted to let you all know that surgery went really well yesterday. I have never had surgery before and had a wonderful experience up at Huntsman. We will get the results tomorrow at 4pm. I will let you all know how it goes.

I also want to thank you for all of your prayers, love and support! I can't tell you how much i appreciate you all!

Thank you and Love you!



Russ has lots of loves in life, and a few passions, Baseball is one of those passions. The Deseret news did an article on the league he plays for and took a few pics. Sometimes it's hard to have him gone, but i know it makes him happier and less stressed when he gets to play. He is really good and i am so proud of him. Here is the link to the article and here are some pictures they took of my man.
