Happy 2nd Birthday Treston

I can hardly believe it's been two years today that my Treston was born. He has changed me more then any of my children. I think because I knew he would be my last. He has made me more patient...because he is the one who makes me want to pull my hair out the most. He has brought me more tears as I have tried to savor every baby moment. He has brought me more smiles...with his infectious laugh and bright blue eyes. I can't image my life without him. I am so thankful Heavenly Father trusted me to be his mother. Thank you Treston for all the love you bring in to our home. Happy Birthday!

I read this this morning...and loved it! Thought I would share. It made me happy and hope it will you to!

"Think of the purest, most all-consuming love you can imagine. Now multiply that love by an infinite amount‹that is the measure of God's love for you." God does not look on the outward appearance (see 1 Samuel 16:7). I believe that He doesn't care one bit if we live in a castle or a cottage, if we are handsome or homely, if we are famous or forgotten. Though we are incomplete, God loves us completely. Though we are imperfect, He love us perfectly. Though we may feel lost and without compass, God's love encompasses us completely." --Dieter F. Uchdorf

love you! Carolynn

A Park at Grandma's house

A few weeks ago we got to spend a week at Grandma's house. It was so fun because we were able to have a few days at Grandma and Grandpa to ourselves before the rest of the family came. One day Grandma thought we should go to zoo. When we got there it was closed. But it was okay...because there was an amazing park right next to it and the kids loved it. We thought it was a heat wave because it was 50 degrees not 8 degrees like sunny Utah! The kids played and played. Poor Grandma got a bit cold. But we had a blast! A few more posts to follow about fun time at Grandma's house!
I love this picture of Carson! I caught him watching his brothers!
This zip line was super fun!

Daddy helping!
This bowl spins you around! Everyone took a turn getting dizzy!

Here are a few cards I've created this last month! Enjoy~


Hi Everyone! I am finally joining the band wagon and starting a blog. This last few years have been a great adventure for me. I had the opportunity to help launch a new company into the scrapbooking industry. While spending countless hours doing that I learned what I love about papercrafting and that is simply "creating" and "sharing." So with that...I am hoping to inspire and create through this so many other people have me. Enjoy!
