This is a picture of Brighton when she was 6 months old...I needed a happy picture with this post, one that the second you look at it, you can't help but smile....because life is hard. I often wonder why I was blessed to be born to my parents, live in a safe place, a free country, blessed with health and strength, BLESSED. Please don't get me wrong...I am not writing to brag....I just feel blessed and sad at the same time thinking of those in Haiti....those sweet mothers and fathers, children...dead in the street. Bodies piling up and people following the flies to find more dead bodies. My heart hurts. Along with the devastation in Haiti and other world disasters, my heart aches for friends and those I don't even know who have lost loved ones, and more particularly babies. I stare at Brighton and can't imagine my life without her. Those that have lost a baby in their pregnancy have a hold on my heart strings. I don't have the words to say other than I'm sorry. If I could take away the hurt and pain that people are feeling around the world I would. I don't know what it is like to lose a child and I pray I will never have to...but for those who have....I love you...and I certainly know God loves you....sooner or later everything will be ok. Peace be with you I pray with all my heart and soul...Don't give up.

Hey Friends....Halloween pics are here....the votes are tallied....I have the cutest peacock on the block. Healther Telford took these darling pictures. I had to capture her first Halloween costume...I can't wait for next year! We went trick or treating too! (yes, I got some looks from some that seemed to convey the message "um, we know the candy is for you...") Any who, this baby girl is the best. Seriously....I know it's true.
I know what you are all thinking....how did we get the CUTEST most BEAUTIFUL baby out there? I dunno....we just did. Allegra George took this amazing pictures over the Thanksgiving break and I loved them the second I got a peek. Thanks Allegra....speechless. I am the worst blogger ever...yes, I know, but I don't have time to care. Most if it is business with lives, baby, work, exercise...and yes, some of it is pure laziness. Brighton is now 11 months old....where did the last 11 months even go? It literally seems like a dream since I pushed this incredible blessing out of my....well, any way, time flies....and I hate it. I am busily planning her one year party....Rainbow Brite is the theme...and I can't wait to post those pictures when they come...hopefully it won't take me until next Christmas to get them up. Brighton weighs around 15 lbs....a teeny little fart, but my most favorite fart there is. This new year comes with hope for a better year than last (although having Brighton totally tops any year) Robb is working diligently with his business Buck Hard, and I am busy working at Dr. Swenson's and teaching dance. Life is busy, but it is great. I have loved getting back to the gym....Zumba-ing it up with the best darn teacher out there (Kass...) and falling in love with step all over again, and when I can't get my butt to the gym, I dig deep and find some fondness for the treadmill. Please enjoy these pics...I know I do, I am the proudest mommy and wife out there. XOXO
