I am grateful for...

Jarom. He works SO hard, he is gone most days from 8 in the morning until 10 at night, and even when he is home he is doing homework. I am so proud of him, as well as his perseverance and work ethic. He is so smart, and is such a great example to me. It is very hard not having him around a lot, like I'm used to, but I know this will pay off in the end. I just want to say that I am grateful for him, I'm grateful that he makes me laugh and smile, and is someone I can fully rely on. He is my best friend and an AWESOME daddy. He is Fae's favorite, I get a little jealous when he comes home and he gets big smiles and laughs.. while I've been home all day with her and haven't gotten them.
I can't wait for us both to be done with school so that we can be on better, more set schedules, and be able to see each other more. I love my Jarom!!

Bowman Orchards

(Disclaimer.. picture overload)
Today, Fae's actual birthday, we went to Bowman Orchards! We had so much Fun!

Shes just a little over 2 feet tall, what a cutie!




She Picked one she liked!!



This is Our Orchard, didn't you know that we owned an awesome orchard??






Fae and the cow... That's it, I'm writing a children's series, Fae's name is just too perfect. Agreed? good.



Fae and the Goat!


This Goat Struck a Pose haha... I love goats, seriously.


There was so much to do, just look at the signs!


There was a "Play Area" as well, so cute!








"The Apple of our eyes" She refused to look at the camera haha



The cute little store, where we bought delicioussssss apple cider doughnuts and AMAZING New York Apples.. you can't beat a new york apple.

Fae's Birthday Party

We had Fae's Birthday Party on the 1st of October instead of the 7th because some of our family members wouldn't have been able to come otherwise. Her Party was a blast, I had so much fun decorating for it and planning it, she had fun just opening presents, eating cake and playing with her cousins!

This beautiful cake (butterflies included) was made by my extremely talented cousin Amanda! I seriously could not believe she really made it, it was AWESOME!




Yes, she even made smaller cupcakes with butterflies! I told you, amazing.

I am such a bad picture taker! but here is a picture of one of the tables, and the birthday banner.




This should be a title of a book "Fae and the cake she didn't know what to do with" haha




Opening Presents! She got such perfect, great present from everyone! ((THANKS GUYS!!))





Grandma Lorry and Papa Bob! Fae was so glad that they stayed a little longer than normal in NY so they could come to her party! (They left for Florida the next day)


After the party, she had so much fun playing with the balloons!



I didn't get a whole lot of pictures, but I promise to work on that... The good news is, she had a GREAT birthday party, we were sad that Jarom's family wasn't able to be with us.. since they live in Idaho, but they all sent great cards and presents!! (Thanks :) )

Something I liked...

I don't usually blog about religious things, but yesterday I was able to hear one of the closing speakers of this years general conference (Saturday session). It was about children, and how many children couples should have. What I liked about it was that the speaker gave light to the fact that although we are commanded to repopulate and replenish the earth, that does not mean we can all have 6 or 7 children. Personally, I have been asked repeatedly when we are going to have another baby. I can't tell you how annoying it is. People who do not know me well, may think I have everything under control, but in reality motherhood is very challenging for me. I have to work at it every day. And although I have the most precious, sweet, good natured, happy baby, it is very very challenging for me to keep on top of things while also keeping me head on straight. The speaker went on to say that the number of children couples have is entirely between them and the Lord. I love that. It is a definite reality that being Mormon puts a huge pressure on women to have more than one child, however hearing from this speaker (in particular) made me realize that some people can handle more than others, and if one child is enough for me, then that's ok, and I shouldn't have to feel bad about it. (not that I really ever did)
