We have been on an emotional roller coaster this week. We have felt shock, denial, pain, heartbreak, love, happiness, and support. We lost our baby this week. With all the ups and downs there is an overwelming feeling of thankfulness for the gospel. There was no way to tell the girls and to make it through the two painful procedures without our knowledge of the plan of salvation. We know we will get to raise our little boy in the next life. Thank you to our friends and family for everything. We are so blessed to have you in our lives. Even though there is still sadness, we are filled with love.

Wonderful Winter

Happy Winter!! We ended 2009 and started 2010 on our annual trip to the valley of the sun. What great winter weather!! It was nice to thaw out a little! :) We saw A LOT of family and had A LOT of fun! We came home by way of Bagdad to see Chad's parents and Durango to see Chad's cousins and celebrate our anniversary. What a blast!! When we finally made it home, the girls were so exhausted...we needed a vacation from our vacation! This is a trip we won't soon forget!! Winter is in full force here in Colorado and the snow and cold temperatures just won't quit. In fact, I got my truck washed yesterday and by the time I drove home, the doors were frozen shut! Brrrrr!! We are trying to stay warm and remember the wonderful winter weather in AZ!
Waiting their turn for the annual Whiting Family Polar Bear Club. All three girls did it this year!
All the members of the 2009 Polar Bear Club (notice Grandpa is the only adult this year...hehe)

Riding bikes at Grandma Whiting's house. We are so sad Fruita has so much snow....we can't ride our bikes!
Happy Birthday Connie! The girls had so much fun having their usual "tea party" with chocolate pudding :)
We went on a "buggy" ride in Bagdad with Grandma/Papa Dare. What fun! The girls loved it (even though it was stinkin cold!)
While on our trip, we celebrated our 11th anniversary! It is hard to believe it's been so long since our wedding day! I am married to an amazing man and I am so lucky to have him!! Thanks Dixie and James for a great night out...I have never eaten so much sushi!!
Back to Colorado and the snow! The girls had a good time playing in the snow (except Regan who had a sledding accident. She crashed and landed on her face...I have never seen so much blood!! The ground and her snow clothes looked like someone was murdered!)
Carli snowboarding...she is addicted!! She had so much fun, she wants us to buy her a snowboard of her own! She's really good too!!
Regan got forced to try snowboarding after her accident. She didn't want to, but after she tried it she loved it!
Mollie was the cutest little snowboarder ever!! She is a natural and has great balance. She was so tiny and she insisted on doing it without help. Absolutely adorable!!
