In loving Memory

Casey Edgar Nish
August 2,1972- November 20,2008

We will truly miss our friend Casey and our thoughts and prayers go out to all those he left behind, especially his wife Lani and three children Aubrey, Max, and Sam. I've never met a more loving family. I will cherish all the wonderful memories we shared being neighbors and friends.

What? I Didn't Do Anything!

I was doing the dishes and I could here the sounds of crayons busy at work so I called for the twins and I quickly heard little foot steps running away.......And this is what I saw........Chloe hiding on the stairs and her artwork left on my wall! Heaven help me. Good thing she's just so darn cute!

Meet Bear Claw

Jayben was super excited about this project in school. He learned about the first Thanksgiving with the Indians and Pilgrims. He learned about how the indians taught the pilgrims to bury fish in the ground for fertilizer to help produce really good corn. He also learned about indian symbols, which he really loved.

A BIG day for a Mother of Twins

Today was a big day for me. The twins sat and actually watched an entire episode of Semame Street, YEAH! I couldn't believe it, so I had to take a picture. This means I can actually get things done around here!!! (don't worry the heater between them isn't plugged in)

Ever since John has started his masters program I've noticed how exhausted he's been, but that doesn't stop him from enjoying the time he has with the kids. After saying hello to me, the first thing he does when he gets home is love on his kids. Even though he may be really tired from the days events; such as teaching 90 crazy 7th graders, working on his masters program, and then going to his second job (carpet installation) his face always lights up when he comes home. He truly is an inspiration.

So here's to all the hard working Fathers out there, trying to provide a great life for their families and even though it's HARD they still have big smiles on their faces......This is what life is all about........

More Graduation pics.....

My Mom was able to come to the Graduation so we got to have her again for the weekend. It was really nice, the kids adore her.

My handsome hubby and sweet Olivia before the ceremony.

Hunter and Jayben enjoying their time with my other nephew Joseph. When these three get together it's non-stop talking, giggling, and playing. And not to mention, alittle fighting over who gets to ride is who's car.

Grandma Campbell with Chloe bug.

My wonderful Nephews!

We are so proud of Steven and Adam for graduating out of the program at Westridge Academy and Adam for getting his Highschool Diploma! I can't believe they are growing up so fast. It seems like yesterday when I was holding them as babies and now they are taller than me and definetly smarter than me!! I'm looking forward to their futures, I know they are going to do great things.

Adam has already made the decision to go with a BYU professor and some students to Peru to work in a Children's Orphanage for 6 months, although we will miss him we are really excited for this new adventure. We love you Adam.

This is my brother Curtis and his wife Liana. I know that today was a big day for them; the love of a parent is priceless. Curtis is such a wonderful Father and Husband and I'm overwhelmed at the love he shows his family. I love you Curtis.

Steven and Macie together at the Graduation. Steven is such a wonderful Nephew and has made great strides at Westridge Academy. He is so talented. At Westridge he was able to tap into alot of those talents; sports, of course, poetry, spirituality, and acedemics. We love you Steven and are so proud of you.

All in all, it was a great day! Thank you Curtis, for the opportunity to support such great boys. We already miss you guys!

Halloween a few days late!

Isn't this the cutest couple you have ever seen? Eeyor and Piglet, aka, Carter and Kenzley. These are the twins friends and they went to a Halloween party on Friday together, it was a blast! Of course the twins didn't participate AT ALL in the fun games and face painting, but fought the entire time over a baby stroller that wasn't even their's. Oh, the joys of having two girls the same age with the same exact interests!!! Can you even imagine what it will be like when they get older, HEAVEN HELP US!

Well here are the trouble makers, aren't they cute? They hated taking pictures and the costumes weren't their favorite, but we made it through. Why can't 18 month olds just cooperate??? They're adorable none the less!

Here are a few more pictures from Halloween. We attented our annual Trunk or Treat in the church parking lot that evening. Olivia dressed as a cheerleader and Jayben was the Unknown Phantom, his eyes would light up and he thought that was really cool. We unfortunately didn't get a picture of Hunter because he was off with his good friend Bradley for the evening, but he dressed as a Phantom as well. The twins had completely had it by then with Halloween; they just wanted to go home and go to bed! Also, the Young Women were practically in charge of the whole event so the night before we made yummy carmeled apples rolled in nuts, candy, marshmallows, white chocolate, dark chocolate, and toffee bits. Those were a hit! They also served donuts and hot chocolate to everyone; so thank you to all the girls and leaders.
