"Why are you giving this to me"

Yesterday while on my way to work I saw a little boy out on the side walk selling something. I rolled down my window and saw that it was candy, and asked how much it was and he said $1. I said ok I'll take two candy bars, then I asked him what he was selling this for, he then said to me "I'm just trying to buy presents for my brothers".

My heart just sank. I then gave him another $5, and went to work. When I went to lunch he was still out there, so knowing I had some gifts in my car for our kids I pulled over and pulled out the only "boy" item we had and I handed it to him, and he said "no its ok" but I insisted and then he asked "why are you giving this to me" I told him that everyone deserves Christmas.

I couldn't help but think about this the rest of my day and even after buying a gift card for that family I still feel like I didn't do enough.

I also thought about my Savior and how many times I make mistakes or fall short and I have even asked "why are you giving this to me", and I wonder if he would respond " because everyone deserves Salvation"

Merry Christmas

Tysen turns 2

I'll have to post pictures later but on Friday our little guy turned two! Although he embraced the role of terrible two months ago, he settled into the number quit nicely as we celebrated to a Toy Story theme party. He was thrilled to blow out the candles that it actually took us lighting them 3 separate times just to get a picture.

I love how sweet and fun he is. He is busy, talks all the time, sleeps in a big bed, loves to color, plays with cars, trains and planes. He is all boy!

We are so enriched every day to have this little boy in our lives.

I love you Tysen so much

Christmas List

I think there are 5 things a women should have on her Christmas list (no order, just as it came to mind)

1.a hot pair of jeans to make your assets look AMAZING
2.something that is a trend, I always go for jewelry only because it is a small investment for a trend.
3. new music/book
4.a new fragrance, my suggestion for this year would be D&G The One or Gucci Guilty, or wait Chanel Chance En Tendure (spelling is wrong on that last one but you get it)...luv!
5.Breakfast in bed
