Feeling Good

It's almost been 4 months since we lost the Babies and I can finally look back at it as a memory! Even though I think about them every day, I have accepted what happened and am ready to move on. That feels good! I thought that would never happen!
We had a wonderful Christmas and a MUCH needed vacation! It was really fun to see my family and friends and be "Home" again! Everything was so relaxing and fun! We went to the coast for a couple of days. Didn't get out to the beach much but there is just something about being there and hearing the rain pound on the windows while being all snuggly inside watching movies and eating yummy food! Love it! Thanks Mom and Dad for being so good to us and letting us come to visit!
My favorite little dude! Just can't get enough of him!

They were determined to fly those kites!

New Christmas Jammies!

Christmas Eve Nativity! Always a favorite!

I got called to be the Relief Society Secretary. Definitely a new experience! I am learning a lot and getting to know the ladies I work with a lot better! It's way more than just passing around the binders every Sunday that's for sure! Hopefully I'll figure everything out soon!
I went back to work. It feels like I never left! It's OK, Mostly I just love the girls that I work with and seeing them everyday! I have been exercising everyday, Thanks to Jenni! This extra baby fat is good motivation to exercise more! Jenni has been my "Personal Trainer" Everyday and it's AWESOME! She's the best! We have so much fun! She kicks my butt though! I'm sore almost everyday! I really do feel a lot better and have more energy and I'm starting to feel good and enjoy exercising rather than wanting to die after just 10 min. on the elliptical.
I am so happy and have so much to be thankful for! We have been planning some little vacations for the next couple of months. We're going to Arizona next month! I can't wait to see Nate and his family! I have missed them so much! We're also going to Park City for a couple of days to do something fun for the Babies due date. We don't want that day to be too sad. I know it will be hard and I'm not looking forward to it but hopefully this will help! Most of all, We're really looking forward to the time when we can start trying to get pregnant again! I can't stop thinking about it! It's like looking forward to Christmas or something! Everyday that goes by is one day closer to April!
We are grateful for our health and that we are able to heal from everything and have things to look forward to! We are very happy and feeling good!!

Great job on the exercising, I'm horrible at that.

Glad to hear you're doing well, you have such a positive attitude, it's contagious and always puts me in a good mood.

Love you!

You are such a strong woman! Thanks for the inspiration! And I'm glad that you are doing well. I'm a little jealous of the personal trainer ;) I definitely need one of those!

First of all, I could not be more proud of how positive you've been and how you've never forgotten that you will always be those babies mama. I can't wait until you're pregnant again :)

I love your Christmas pics! I wish I was there! And I'm telling you, you are the BEST person to exercise with ever!!! hahaha!!! I love it, we have to do it for the rest of our lives! Thanks for putting up with me even when I get all Jillian Michaels on you :) hahaha!


I'm glad to hear you are doing so well. I wish Jenni could be my personal trainer. You're so lucky. Those are expensive! All the pics are so cute. You girls are so beautiful. love you
