Last Day

No it's not the last day of class or of tests... but the last day I have EMI!!

It still really hasn't hit me yet that their family is moving and I won't have you in the fall. :( Emi's mom graduated from ATSU and now they are getting ready to move to Tulsa OK for her residency program.

I have had Emi since September when she was 2 months old. It has been a great experience learning about children and watching her grow, and I mean grow she is HUGE

I have watched her learn to sit up, roll over, feed herself, crawl, talk,

pull herself up onto things, and climb the stairs...

I have to admit I won't miss having to take the trash out so often due to dirty stinky diapers :)

Emi, Ryan and I will miss you!! and we wish your family the best of luck!!

Two Years Ago

On May 17th 2008, my uncle David (dad's brother) and my cousins Kaitlyn, Taylor, and Ellie were in a car accident. Unfortunately, Taylor was the only one to survive and spent a month in the hospital in an induced coma.

Just wanted to say how thankful I am for the gospel in my life and the knowledge that we have about families being together forever. I know that God works in mysterious ways and that sadly it was there time to go. I still think about the events that happened that day and after and I know that Heavenly Father knows what he is doing and has a plan for each and every one of us. I am so thankful that Ryan and I are sealed for all eternity and the comfort that comes with knowing that.

my aunt Emily, Taylor and Jaden

David, Kaitlyn and Ellie we miss you!

The World's Greatest Mom

Just wanted everyone to know that I have the coolest mom ever :)

Let me tell you why I have the best mom in the world....

1. She is willing to try anything- here we are in Nauvoo trying some Mississippi River Catfish (our family is not fish people!) Ryan got some and wanted her to try it and she did. WAY TO GO MOM!!

2. She
LOVES her grand kids and spoils them rotten!

3. She supports her kids in everything! I don't know how many miles you drove to watch our volleyball, basketball, cheer leading, golf, banquets, lunches, meetings etc. But when you said you would be there you always were!

4. She is an
awesome bowler!

5. A few years ago my family started calling me PJ (Patti Junior) and calling my mom LS (Lisa Senior) Yes sadly I am becoming more and more like my mother!!

we both need are beauty sleep!

we both love sweets!

and more....

Some days mom, I am honored to be like you!
You taught me to work hard, keep a clean house, and always have 3 items of food for dinner :)

Crunch Time

So Ryan is entering his last few weeks before summer vacation... it has been the craziest week and isn't going to get any better until its all done!!

His testing schedule is test tomorrow, Monday, Friday, Monday, Wednesday, Friday and then FINALS which is EVERYDAY!! So if your good at math then you just figured out that there is only 7 days that he won't be testing!!

But don't worry he is studying a lot and when he doesn't feel like studying anymore, he pulls the ottoman over and makes him self a little bed!!

I think in neurology they learned that if you fall asleep on your books, you can still learn things while sleeping!!
