Happy belated Valentines day to all

Our Valentines Tree

The kids love that we left up our Christmas tree and will decorate accordingly each month
Shyann and Sholann ready for their Valentines party at school

My 2 little cuties

Joben, Shyann, Kenton and Sholann ready for church on Sunday!

Our children had fun parties at school this past week for Valentines except for Jacoby our 12 yr old.. No LOVE in the 6th grade allowed at his school! (Phew.... I like that) Instead of taking goodies to school for others Jacoby decided he had to take some candy for himself so he wouldn't feel left out when other grades were eating! The thoughts of a 12 yr old!
Mathew and I went to a wonderful get together with some couples from our Ward on saturday and ate while we chatted then after, we went to our Adult ward dance (prom)..
What a BLAST.... We danced and danced and Mathew danced with women whose husbands were either not able to make it or didn't want to dance!!!! Then I danced with a guy whose wife was unable to dance to faster music due to being pregnant!! I informed Mathew that now we would be known as THE SWINGERS of the ward for stealing someone elses spouse to dance with! LOL.
Our ward family is FUN and eager to laugh.. We are so blessed that Mathew is still with us and feeling so much better than he was and seemingly getting stronger by the day!
Apart from dizzy spells and some headaches life is pretty good for him..
On Sunday we got our children dressed for church and headed off to a wonderful Valentines day at Sacrament listening to beautiful inspired talks.. Our Youth never cease to amaze me as they give their wonderfully prepared talks... Where else do we find children from a few years of age ready and eager to say Prayers and give Talks and speak in front of 100 plus people???
The Gospel is true!
Happy Valentines to all and hope you all find the time to give your spouse a hug full of love and remind them of how much you love them!

Time has flown by

YES!!!!! We are WEIRD!!!!

Wow....... I cannot believe it has been 2 months since I posted something on here..
Let me wish everyone a HAPPY NEW YEAR and hope you all had a wonderful Christ filled Christmas..
Mathew is still in remission which we are totally thrilled about.. It still amazes me how so differently it could have turned out!
We go to see his Oncologist Dr Nabong every 3 months and each time we are grateful to hear the good news that all is well..

Mathew put back on the weight he lost and MORE!!!!.. I try to convince him everytime he plunges a Big Mac into his mouth to STOP and eat healthier foods... The fruit and veg's just don't cut it for him!!!!!!

Thanks to all the delicious food that was brought to us during his battle with Cancer, I too had put on weight and happy to say I am finally at my 10 lbs mark with another 10 lbs to go....

Our children are wonderful and such a blessing to us..
Jacoby turned 12 in Dec..
Joben just turned 8 and cannot wait to be Baptised..
Kenton is 6 and doing great and is reading so much better..
Shyann turned 5 and is so happy to have a sister close to her age..
Sholann is 4 and doing so much better at school and has come out of her shell having her sibs to hang out with..

We had another addition of a silky terrier.. Lilly.. She is by my side morning noon and sometimes night when I sneak into Jacobys room and steal her to bring into my bed....!!!

Mathew went for a sleep study so I am living in hope that they will give him a C PAP Machine..
One of these days I swear he will stop breathing for good during his sleep.. Scares me to death...

Me.....? ummmm well I keep myself busy even though I am a stay at home Mom.. Plenty of chores to do and going into the childrens classes at school to help out.. I am a Webelos leader for our cub scouts and love every moment of it working with the boys!

I take a small gift to all the Sisters in our Ward on their b'days... We don't want anyone to think we don't care about them... What an awesome ward we have...

The Christmas tree is STILL UP and is now decorated with HEARTS for Valentines...
Roll on St. Patricks day!!!

Well, that's us caught up somewhat and I need to get back into posting on here...

Thanks for taking the time to read this blog.. Love to all Maxine :)
