This past weekend has been one of the best weekends I have had in a while. The exciting news did contribute, but on top of that I got to spend time with three of the most beautiful people I know. My sister Emily just recently had her sixth baby, so Anna, Amanda, and I all came down to spend some time with her. I love those ladies more than I could ever express! Anna has always been like a mother to me. She has always supported me through some of the toughest times in my life. She never fails to make me feel loved, even when it feels like no one else does. I have major withdrawls from her. It is hard to live with someone you care about so much, then live in another state afterwards. I love you so much Anna. Emily was also a mother figure growing up. Always taking care of me, naming me pookyfeet, and also supporting me through the boy drama. She is such a good person. Most people who have been through what she has, come through the other side some bitter people. She on the other hand came out a better person. She is so sweet and patient and cares about others. I love you Mimi. Amanda, or Lucy as I have always liked to call her, is the most dedicated person I know. She never halfasses ANYTHING! I admire her persistent nature. She sticks to what she knows to be right. She gets a lot of crap for it, but it is just because the rest of us are so jealous that she can do it!! She is the most patient mother I have ever met. She is so loving towards everyone! I admire her righteousness. I love you Lucy! All of them are the best mothers and wives! I couldn't ask for better examples in every area of my life than those three. Thank you so much for all you have done and continue to do for me.
Scotty has finished the Book of Mormon, and got his answer. He is getting baptized in a month!!!!!!!! I can not help but to take this opportunity to say something incredibly immature, but something I have wanted to say so badly to all of those that insisted that they knew more than I did... I told you so.
