Happy Birthday Reese! Today is Reese's first birthday, I already got upset last night at 12:05 realizing thats the exact time she was born last year. This has truly been the best year of my life with my beautiful baby girl. She is everything I could of ever wanted and more. I feel so happy and so sad at the same time that my baby girl is getting bigger and bigger and i know she is still a baby and I'm going to cuddle and kiss more and more every day! Last year she was 7 lbs 4 ounces 20 inches long and in the NICU because of a possible infection. This year she is 20 lbs 7 ounces 28 inches ( my little short stack ) with a little runny nose, she is walking like a champ and right now she is eating her birthday snack....a handful of reese's pieces of course!!

Today has been my susie homemaker day, i bagged and froze 40 pounds of chicken. Yeah you read right FORTY POUNDS of chicken! They had a killer sale on boneless, skinless chicken breast but you had to buy 40 lbs so i bought it and divided it into freezer bags and now my freezer is full of chicken. I also for the past 4 hours have been making homemade applesauce. So far i have made 6 jars which are in the canning process now, i am about to mulch up another 6 jars, I got the apples and applesauce maker stuff from a wonderful lady in the ward so it has only cost me $8 bucks for 12 quart size jars of applesauce and i made 2 apple pie fillings as well. They applesauce is so good and all natural! I dont add any sugar but use a variety of certain apples so it is just naturally sweet. All the ladies in the condo's have made some as well. Also i made a taggie blanket for Reese last night as a template i am going to make some for my niece meadow, Reese loves it so i am sure she will as well. The crafty home-makey bug has bit me!

Like I said before my mommy came out to visit so while she was here we had Reese's birthday party or parties, we had a little get together in Idaho where she had ice cream at The Cheesecake Factory and then she had presents and cake at Lindsay's house. I swear this little baby is going to think her birthday is a month long!! LOL! Then we had her party here in Utah with her friends. She had a great time she was dressed like the princess she is! I loved having my mom here and i miss her already as i am sure Reese misses getting spoiled as well!

My mommy came out to visit this past week so I have been busy and haven't been able to post but here is a catch up of what we have been up to. We drove out to Boise, ID for my friend Lindsay's baby blessing. Her home is only 5 hrs away not a to terrible drive but incredibly BORING!!! There is nothing between Utah and Idaho!! Just cows and cow poo. It was nice to be able to visit though, i had a really good time. Reese was good, she had a hard time because she couldn't get her naps but she was good. Lindsay's baby Maggie is SOO cute! I have some pictures of her smiling at me:) What can i say she loves her Auntie Tara. It's late I will post some more tomorrow.

I am sitting here watching conference and what i can hear between my screaming child is really filling my home with the spirit. I just listened to a talk that was about the basic principle of the gospel. How life is not about money, things, objects or anything like that its about love. Love for Christ, love for yourself and your family and love for others. Why do we cloud life with other things? Why do i get materialistic about stupid things, why do i stress about money? When if i live life simple and serve Christ and others everything will work out. I need to be better, but don't we all. It needs to be on the forefront of my mind always and not let myself get clouded with worries of the world. I love conference.
