Most of you have been following my nieces story and her battle with cancer. We stopped in to see her on our way home from Utah. She was just finishing up her 4 day chemo and was so thrilled to see these boys. She kept rubbing Jaxon's leg and was so excited to have them snuggle up to her. They gave kisses, hugs, and even a few tug of war moments just like when she was home.

She humbles me each and every day. As I watch her and her sweet family go through this trial I feel as though I am learning more about life and how precious it is and to hold tight to every moment with each other. I cherish the moments I get to hold her, paint her nails, put in hair things, and listen to her laugh and cheer when she see us. As she gets ready for this life altering surgery I can only hope and pray when it is all said and done, I will get a lifetime to hold her. I love all my girls up in Utah and wish I could spend more time with them. What great examples they are to all of us. Love you too pieces.

Grammie and Teg. snuggled up. This is how they sleep while in the hospital. My mom loves every second of it and Teg loves to give her tons of kisses good night.
Lots and lots of kisses!
Watching Shrek!
