Please pray for baby Henry

My family has had some sad news. My cousin Matt's, whom I'm very close with, little boy Henry's had to be life-flighted to Primary Children's Hospital a couple of days ago. Henry's red blood cells were being torn apart by his own vascular system. It was triggered by a toxin released from the pneunomia bacteria, the rare disease is known as HUS. HUS or Hemolytic Uremic Syndrome is a serious problem that is usually produced from the e-coli bacteria, but Henry has been diagnosed with the rare P-HUS.The main problem is kidney failure. Henry's kidneys have stopped working because they are swollen and the broken blood cells plug them up. Henry is in critical, but stable, condition. Matt and Alisa are such strong people. They have such great faith and they are staying very positive. If you want to check out his care page the website is: carepages.org He is under Prince Henry. We are praying for a miracle. Please keep Henry in your prays. Miracles do happen.

I'm back.....

I have not blogged for a while. I have been working on Super Saturday stuff for a few months now, but the moment finally came yesterday. For the past 2 weeks I have been cutting vinyl like a mad women. The counselor in the relief society presidency who helps me with enrichment, was sooooo awsome. She ran around and bought all of the supplies. There is no way I could have done it without her. She has a daughter Alex's age, and they get along really well. So everytime she came over, our kids played together. I'm just really greatful it's all over. I feel like a big weight is off my back. I had someone tell me that next month we should do another craft day with all Christmas stuff! I was like, "no, maybe next year". I don't think people realize that I have been working on this since the summer! But, it turned out fabulous, and I feel like I could sleep all day.

First Day of School



So this week, Alex started preschool. I have been looking forward to this for a LONG time, but the day before his school started I was feeling a little scared. I have no idea why, because he has been asking to go to school for a while now. The first day, the parents could stay the whole time. I was planning on it, but Alex was fine. He was having a great time. The next day, when I dropped him off he said "you can leave now mom." He is very independent. I guess that is a good thing.

So You Think You Can Dance

So last night, David and I went to the So You Think You Can Dance Tour. It was a blast! We had great seats. We got to see everyone right up close. There were people there with posters and everything. I told David that next time, we are going to make a poster and bring it! David told me that I was a nerd. My favorite dancer to watch was Courtney, even thought I think that Katie is the best girl. I also really like Chelsea when she dances latin, but in the group dances, she is the weakest. David really likes Twitch. He is definately cool. They totally played up Gev liking Courtney, and she kept saying, "I already told you that I have a boyfriend." We all went "OHHHHH". Anyway, it was tons of fun and my wonderful husband was such a good sport to go with me. I'm trying to get him to take a salsa class with me. That might take a little bit more convincing!
