Birthday & Graduation!!!

Jarom had a busy birthday this year. His birthday fell on Friday, and it was the end of finals with graduation from Snow College Saturday morning!We just couldn't be more proud of all he has accomplished since graduating from high school last year. He received his associates in only one year! He has been so working so hard that he is enjoying being home now with no responsibilities other than getting things ready for his mission.  So the guest speaker for the Snow graduation was Elder Jeffrey R Holland! Jarom was pretty excited to shake his hand.
The person who was taking the pictures of the graduates with the dean, really should have been taking pictures with Elder Holland! haha ;) Just kidding. Afterwords we moved him out of his apartment and it is definitely easier moving a son than a daughter! They just don't accumulate much in the way of decorations. It has been such a busy few weeks for me and my emotions have been crazy. I have been blessed with such amazing children and they bring me so much happiness. Add a wonderful husband to the mix and I sometimes sit back and wonder how I can be this blessed? I am so grateful for my family♥

Happy Birthday!

Happy Birthday Kayla! It was fun to have her home after missing her last two birthdays. Jaisha made her cake and Kayla chose her colors and it turned out just perfect! Funny how Kayla feels so old at 23...cause she is really so very young. Her birthday fell on a Saturday and she and I went down to listen to Kayla's Hero - Sheri Dew!! She was speaking at a conference there and she even had the chance to shake her hand. Sister Dew is so amazing and the trip down was definitely worth it! I just had to give her a little book as a memory.

Probably the most exciting gift of the day was her little notebook/laptop. Seems like kids just can't function in college or society without the internet. When I told her she had the web-cam, she started to cry! She now speaks/see's her converts in Italy!! Best of all its free! She really misses them.
