This was the most wonderful weekend for my family.
Travis and Taylor were sealed in the American Fork Temple to their beautiful babies. My heart is so overjoyed and thankful. It
was a beautiful special day for them.
This was the first PHOTO ever of all the babies together.

FAMILIES ARE FOREVER.
I am blessed to be the mother of these two special girls (and Gentry).
As much as I think they are beautiful, the true beauty is their inner beauty and heart. I am so thankful they are kind and loving. I have ALWAYS told my children this. IF you can be ONE THING- BE KIND. It's really the only way to live your life. It effects how you treat everyone- including yourself.
Taylor then hosted a great dinner after the babies were blessed by Travis at the church meetinghouse . I loved that she used some of the items that I had designed and that she printed the 13x19 photos. (Canon PIMXA iP8720)
Capri's little face is filling out and she is the sweetest little girl.
She loves to put her hand up like this in her photos. It's like that little girl in school who raises her hand to speak. I love this little angel.
These cuties are just blessed to be surrounded with so many people that love them dearly. I am a firm believer in that FAMILY is everything. Today Taylor needed help to go to the dentist with her two babies, so I went to watch the babies. We spent the entire day together and talked. It was a day that she just needed her mother "time." She apologized for taking my whole day and I reassured her that I would drop anything at anytime to be with her. I truly meant this. If we focus on truly what matters in life then I believe that everything does work out.
We hit a ROUGH patch as a family and each of us personally after Tyler died. I wanted to share that our family was "rocked" to our core. It took a lot of patience, love and kindness to get us through our own grieving process. I know that this grieving process is still going on. I witnessed each of our children and myself deal with Ty's death so differently. It was not pretty at times. I truly believe our belief in God and our FAITH was what pulled us through this hard time. We simply knew that family is everything and we need each other. It's during the "storms of life" that things simply unravel. I felt this on such a deep and personal level. I have never felt more sadness or felt more hurt. Our family was struggling. At times, angry words and misunderstanding happened. I know a key ingredient what pulled us back together... LOVE. We choose to love. Often times, we pull away so hard that we lose the most important thing to us. Don't let silly arguments, judgments, misunderstanding and words said RUIN your family and life.
NOTHING is more powerful than the love we have for each other. Also, there is NO RIGHT or NO WRONG. It is called acceptance and forgiveness. We all know that we need to extent this more to others and hope that others will do the same for us. I am forever grateful for my "imperfect" family. We simply love each other and support each other 1000%.
