I Love Summer

How i love the warm weather.... I must say that summer is my favorite time of year. It reminds me of priceless summers as a kid in Bear Lake with grandma and grandpa anderson and my best friend in the whole world my sister Melissa.... How i miss her so so so much.. Or days we would lay out all day and listen to music in hopes of getting a little tan... Times change and people, even loved ones are taken from us way to soon. I am thankful for the memories i had as a child and long for her company and listening ear....Life sometimes throws us curve balls and the only thing we can do is catch it and hold on the the memories we once had and keep our heads up and keep taking one day at a time as hard as it might be... Now i have kids of my own and i only hope they can have the kind of love and friendship and memories of their childhood that i had as a kid..

Lets Go Fly a Kite!!!!

Karter and i flew his first kite the other day... so much fun. He went to his cousin Bailee's birthday party and she gave them away as a gift.. Karter was so excited his was buzz lightyear.. We spent lots of time out side in the front yard flying his kite. We are so excited summer is getting closer to feeling like summer is suppose to we are having a hard time staying in the house.. Karter likes to just be outside so much we are constantly telling him to get back in the house, he likes to just run out on his own.. How i wish for a fenced in yard someday so he can just go play....

Wow i am ready for summer and flip flops and picnics and walks to the park!!! Is that to much to ask for really? I don't think it is... Me and the kids are in need of some much needed sun.... Let see where to start... Highlights of the last few months. First of April, i finally met up with an old friend, Shannon, and i am so so so so glad i did. I love that girl and i wish we would have stayed closer through high school and after but so glad we are getting to catch up now.. Love spending time with her. We went to State Track to watch Mandi, and she did so great. She got medals in 3 of her four events she went for so proud of her. She is the state champ in the Girls 400 Meter... It was so rainy the whole weekend so we had all our rain gear on and had a great time. We had a great memorial day, despite the snow and rainy day that it was, we went to Evanston and decorated Melissa and Grandpa and Grandma Andersons graves... This week has been sunny so far but still chilly cause of the wind but i will take it over cloudy and wet days... Bring on Summer.. Khloe is crawling and got her first tooth 2 days ago, how time flys :( Karter will be 4 in a month also sad... they grow up so so so fast i love them so much. so thankful to have the chance to be a mommy i just hope i can be a good one :) We will post pictures soon of happenings in our life... Take care till next time

Good Day....

Yippy for days like today.... Karter and I went to Layton and met up with one of my old friends so good to see her again its been a long time.. Last time i saw her was at her farewell before her mission to Rome and that was like over 5 years ago.... Thanks Alissa for having lunch with me and Karter.. Karter has a new best friend he really enjoyed meeting you and having lunch... MUST DO MORE OFTEN...
Side note miss Khloe can't sit still she will be crawling before we know it. She is scooting all over the place and rolling all over. Yippy for her and how well she has done... So blessed to have her in our home, what a joy she has been. I love my kids so much...Them and Kyle are my world....

November Really?

November really Melanie? That is 5 months since you posted anything.... ok this is my promise to do better.... So alot has changed since November and alot is still changing and happening in our little world... First Karter is still as happy as ever to be a big brother. He loves his little sister Khloe so so much and he is so good with her. He is 3 going to be 4 in July and that just makes me sad he will be going to school before i know it and i can't even think how that will feel to send my baby to school... We won't think of it to much and enjoy the moments we have now. Our sweet little preemie Khloe is not so preemie anymore, she started out 5 weeks early and 4 lbs 10 oz and now she is 6 months old and 16 lbs she is doing so so well. We couldn't have been so blessed my her coming into our family. We love her and Karter so much they are my whole world i love being able to stay home and spend time with them all day. I am how ever ready for summer to come so that we can get some much needed fresh air. It has been a long winter cooped up in the house trying to keep Khloe from getting sick through cold/flu/rsv season. We managed to do it though only a few colds and one bout of the the flu for Karter and thats it...
We are still living in Henefer and loving it. Kyle is about to start a new adventure with a new job.. he has worked at Deru's Glass in Evanston for the past 3 years and he has loved that but bigger and better opportunities were offered to us and we are making the switch over to a new job next week (end of April). We are excited and nervous all at the same time. He will be working as a estimator/project manager for Mountain Valley Glass in Salt Lake. We will keep updates coming on how that goes and i promise to get pictures of our going ons soon but for now Khloe is a mommys girl and thinks the computer is taking her time away....
