Family Trip To Julian...

Last week for Veteran's Day my family minus my two brother in laws decided to take a trip to Julian. We love Julian especially for the yummy apple pies. I must say though my mom ordered a peach pie and it was pretty good, it might be my favorite now. This was the first time that my nieces and nephews got to go, so it was a lot of fun! Julian is a place my family has been going to for years, even though it's small and we've been in every store about 50 times, we love it! Here are a few pics from the trip....Jazzy, Desea, and Reef ready to go...

As Time Gets Closer...

Taije visiting his cousin Kiarra for the first time.

At the end of this month it will be a year since I had my beautiful little girl who is in Heaven. These past few visits to the cemetery have been really hard for me! There have been times when all I've wanted to do is just stay at home and lay in bed and other times when I just wanted to be with my family. As much as I'd like to think that it's going to get easier over time, I know that I'm always going to have my bad days, but that is when I know that I can go to my father in heaven for help and comfort. My husband Brad has been nothing, but wonderful to me through this and I love him more and more each day. I have a family friend who posted this poem on her page... this poem describes how I've been feeling lately.


People often ask me what it's like to lose a child, this poem describes what I feel sometimes.

My Mom Is A Survivor

My mom is a survivor,
Or so I’ve heard it said.
But I can hear her crying at night
When all others are in bed.

I watch her lay awake at night
And go to hold her hand.
She doesn't know I’m with her
To help her understand.

But like the sands on the beach
That never wash away…
I watch over my surviving mom,
Who thinks of me each day.

She wears a smile for others…
A smile of disguise!But though
Heaven’s door I see
Tears flowing from her eyes.

My mom tries to cope with death
To keep my memory alive.
But anyone who knows her, knows
It is her way to survive.

As I watch over my surviving mom
Through Heaven’s open door…
I try to tell her that angels
Protect me forevermore.

I know that doesn’t help her…
Or ease the burden she bears.
So if you get a chance, go visit her…
And show her that you care.

For no matter what she says…
No matter what she feels.
My surviving mom has a broken heart
That time won’t ever heal.

Reef Tamiati Aiono

Reef Tamiati Aiono was born on April 6, 2009. He weighed 7 pounds 7 ounces and was 20 inches long. What a handsome little boy he is! Like my other nieces and nephew... I can't get enough of him!! I consider myself so blessed to have such beautiful and handsome nieces and nephews!!
I get so excited when I see Reef and can't wait to give him lots of little kisses!!! He's got his mommy's toes and everything else is pretty much from his daddy... He's one of the most perfect little babies!!! I love my nephew Reefy!!

Catching Up

Well were to start....

On December 14, 2008 my nephew John Taije was born he was 6lbs 14oz and 20'' long. He's the most handsome and precious little boy. I don't think I've ever seen so much hair on a baby before.

He definitely looks like my sister-in-law Sarah, but has his daddy's hair. My Brother-in-Law Jared who is an amazing photographer took these pictures of Taije and they had his announcements made from them.

As much as times like these are hard for me, there's nothing I want more then to be with my nieces and nephew. When I hold them and look into their eyes they bring me this happiness that reminds me of the few hours that I got to hold me precious little baby girl. They're my joy and I love spending time with them.

Christmas was wonderful my husband surprised me with an iphone...
I'm not one to like surprises, but this one was definitely a good one. He also got me gift cards because I LOVE to shop. He wasn't surprised at all he knew everything he was getting because he's pretty picky.... He got the high top Supra's he wanted and a complete skate deck and lots of iTunes gift cards. So I must say Christmas was a success.

Brad, Jeff, Scott and Matt left to Hawaii tell the 16th. If there's anything that I'm not a fan of, it's my husband being away from me for more than a day. But being the wonderful wife I am I shared him with his sister and brother. Thank you Lindsay and Cameron for letting them stay with you and making them yummy dinners! While Brad was away I got to play... Just kidding, I stayed with my parents in their empty home and enjoyed it. My parents are wonderful and I love them to death. We ate out every night and I gained weight instead of loosing it. But to my surprise I did get a five day weekend, thanks to the wonderful family that I nanny for. So I got to relax and sleep in.

Brad got home... SOOOO happy!! Also that night Jeff performed at club 12 twenty-five. My brother-in-law is one of the most talented people that I know. His concert was amazing. I could just watch him and his band play for hours. After his performance a bunch of people went to
Por Favor for dinner, so delicious. My mother-in-law Carrie wanted me to take a picture of her with this huge NON-alcholic margarita so here it is.....
She cracks me up!

My 22nd Birthday!! Boy do I feel old. As I look over the past 22 years of my life I've accomplised so much, but have so much more to accomplish. Just to name a few...
-Graduating high school (honor grad)
-Playing volleyball for 4 years
-Being homecoming queen
-Being Senior Class president
-Going to a UC
-Becoming an aunt
-Marrying the love of my life
-Becoming a mom
I look forward to the many more birthdays that I have! Thanks to those who helped make it so special!

I was also privilaged to hear my brother-in-law Jeff give his farewell talk in church. He brought tears to our eyes. He did an amazing job and I feel blessed to be his sister-in-law. I'm excited for him to serve the Lord and for him to teach the people of Mexico. I know he'll work hard and be an amazing missionary. I'm looking forward to spoiling him with lots and lots of packages.

For now that is it, but until I post again.....have a wonderful day!!
