2010 Rollercoaster

We've had quite a year, ups and downs, but I wouldn't change anything.

-Brought lots of snow and storms (for Sierra Vista, that is)


-Took our 3rd Anniversary trip to Disneyland!
-I turned 22
-We found out we were expecting baby #2
-Lance turned 25

-Brody turned 18 months!
-Brody went to Nursery...and didn't like it much, in fact, it took him about 5 months to "Love" nursery!
-Found out I miscarried and had to have a D&C...yuck.
-Enjoyed Spring!
-Spent Easter with my family in Mesa
-Had a family reunion in Thatcher, where Brody rode a horse for the first time.
-Planted a garden, and the tomatoes are the only seeds that grew.
-Found out we were pregnant with baby #2...again! And due February 13th.
-I have no recollection of June...and I have no sad.
-Had a great 4th of July with the Jones'
-Went on our Annual Allred Round table Camp out up to Big Lake
-Brody lost my camera(hence the reason for no pictures in August)

-Brody turned 2!
-Took our trip to crazy San Francisco!
-Found out we're having another BOY and totally shocked!

-Threw Brody's binkies in the trash! YAY!
-Took our annual trip to Apple Annies, to pick out our Fall pumpkins
-Lance had his deer hunt...with no luck on getting our deer....meaning no jerky. Tear.
-We spent Halloween in Mesa and Brody was a cowboy.


-Elder Standage returned from Brazil
-Spent Thanksgiving in Thatcher with the Allred's
-went to listen to Craig report on his mission.
-Started potty training...and done in 3 days!


(32 weeks pregnant)
-Celebrated our 4th anniversary early, by driving out to Sonoita, having dinner, and just being together.

-Had a wonderful Christmas with my family in Mesa.
-My Brother and his wife lost their baby, Ella.

I'm sure 2011 will bring more fun memories and trials...but I'm ready for a new year!
Bring it On!

PS. Below is the post about my brother, his wife, and their sweet angel, Ella.

Baby Ella

Yesterday my brother Bret and his amazing wife Amy welcomed their baby girl Ella here, but then to have her taken back to our heavenly Father a few hours later. Thank you for all of the prayers that are being offered in Bret and Amy's behalf. Please go to Amy's sister's blog
to read more on their story, see a precious tribute picture and if all possible make a contribution to help this young couple pay for funeral expenses.

Thank you everyone, it's much appreciated during this tough time.
