Happy Birthday Leah!

So on September 28th, it was my dear cousin Leah's birthday! Happy birthday leah! She turned 12 and now is a little beehive in young women's! I have grown up with her my whole life and who knows what i would do without her?

This was forever but a cute picture i had to put on! She is ice skating on my birthday six years ago.
And her on the left is more recent. Ice skating on my birthday again, haha, i didn't even know i did that alot. But this was just last year!
And here is her carrying me and our other cousin Mckenna a day before she turned 12. She is pretty strong for a 12 year old!

Graveside pictures

So ya, here are a few pictures from the little funeral thing this morning for Alice. It was spiritual and lots of people were there to support Karen's family. It was cute.

Mow mow mow

I learned how to mow the lawn on Saturday, and if i do it every week, it will pay for my phone bill unless i go over. But i was just so proud of myself i had to make Derek take a pciture!

Bitter-sweet day

Last Tuesday was a very bitter-sweet day. The sweet thing is that Tami had her baby! He is a beautiful baby boy named James Reed Curtis. Tami is crazy and is already back to working and going to church and she brought James here to Mesa!

The bitter thing is that the Karen went in for an ultra-sound and found that baby Alice Jane was dead. She had to give birth to a still born and it was so so sad. I went and saw her and coudn't help crying. The little graveside was today. It was good and i definetly cried a lot more. But her family is doing great now and i know Alice is in heaven.

Here is a really cute poem that was on the program but don't read it if you don't feel like shedding a tear.

Silent Footprints

We never had the chance to play,
To laugh, to rock, to wiggle.
We long to hold you,
touch you now
And listen to you giggle.

I’ll always be your mother.
He’ll always be your dad.
You will always be our child,
For that we are so glad.

But now you’re gone..
But yet you’re here.
We’ll sense you everywhere.
You are our sorrow and our joy.
There’s love in every tear.

Just know our love
goes deep and strong.
We will forget you never.
The child we had,
but never had,
And yet will have forever.
