Christmas 2011

Christmas 2011 was held here in Idaho Falls. My whole family came up. Christmas has been really hard this year and I am just wanting it to be over. Despite my feelings the kids had smiles on their faces and had a great Christmas. Our family was so blessed by service from others. After church we went to visit Nate and put letters into his mail box for his Christmas gifts.
Today, to help with my feelings of sadness and heart break, I would count all my many blessings and it seemed to help. I am so proud of Nate and always have been. I pray that he can watch all these special moments with our children and see their faces. Our family is so blessed and I am so grateful I know that Nate and I are sealed and will see each other again. What a great day that will be to hug and kiss him again. I can't wait for that day.

Nate has so many people that love him!

November 11, 2011 Boondockers films and with the help of KLIM and many very special individuals helped pull of an unbelievable way to honor Nate. So many people put countless hours and used their creativity and most importantly used their passion and love for Nate to pull this night off for us. Tickets sold out 230 seats available and almost 300 people came. There were people sitting on the floor and standing against the walls. This event was held in a movie theater here in town. Before boondockers played the new release of their new movie they played a beautiful tribute and video of Nate and had all of our family pictures up on the big screen. There were interviews filmed of some of Nate's friends and co-workers and they told such amazing stories about Nate. The movie was truly amazing and I am so thankful for all the hard work that was put into this event. It was EXTREMELY successful and I know Nate was there in spirit and I am sure he was touched.

Happy Birthday to my Sweet boy Joshua

Today we celebrated Joshua's 6Th Birthday. Joshua was born on Nov. 3, 2005. From day 1 he was our kind hearted soft spoken loving little boy. Nate and I love Joshua and are so happy he came to us. Joshua is a strong little boy and he is dealing with strong emotions with loosing Nate. I know he tries hard to be happy, but I can tell he is constantly thinking about his Dad. My prayers are that my kids can find happiness and can find comfort eventually. It breaks my heart to see them sad. Today was a good day and Joshua was distracted from our "normal" life. It was great to see a smile from him. Happy Birthday Joshua! Mom and daddy love you!!!
