Just a little update!

Hi All! Happy December! I can't believe how fast time is flying, I feel like I can't keep up with how fast life goes! Sorry I have been MIA these last few months, Tyler and I have been so busy--especially with trying to adjust to our new life. I know a lot of you have been asking how we have been, and what we have been up to. Here is just a little glimpse of what has happened and has been going on in our life!

Tyler is still working hard, he is still working A LOT of hours, and still makes an effort to go to school, and be a great husband! He is getting through life the best he can, and is so patient with me. He is Scheduled to graduate around May of 2016! I know that is still a ways off.... but we are so excited! He has been working so hard, and its finally starting to pay off! I am so proud of him--it is so fun to be able to see him achieve his goals!

I am officially back to work (as of July), and I like it! It is a good thing for me to be able to get out of the house, and focus on other things. My IFA family has been so good to me, I love them all so much, and am so grateful for the friendships I have with them! Other than work, not much else is going on with me. I am trying my best to be a good wife, and a good friend. My calling in Relief Society also keeps me pretty busy, but I love it.

A couple of exciting things have happened, that I have been wanting to share--Back in October, Tyler and I were able to go to the cemetery and watch them install Brenna's headstone!!! It is so BEAUTIFUL! I absolutely love it! It is so nice to be able to go down to the cemetery and be able to have the headstone there.

This is what her headstone looks like! Tyler and I think it is absolutely PERFECT for our PERFECT angel! 

As we were deciding what we wanted her headstone to look like, we knew we wanted something special, and unique! We decided to have little copper hearts placed throughout the cement of her headstone. They look Beautiful!! 

It is our tradition, to go visit Brenna every holiday--we love to take her balloons, and release them into the sky. This was taken the day they installed the headstone. I LOVE this picture!

We still love and miss our baby girl every day. We think about her all the time, and long for the day that we get to be with her. As time has passed, we have started to heal--but the pain will never fully subside.  She will always be a part of our family, and we will always love and miss her. She has sent us multiple blessings from heaven. I know she is beyond happy, and doing the Lords work up above. She is watching out for me, and sends me little tender mercies when I need them most. She has given me strength and courage to reach out to others in need... She has sent me many missionary experiences, and chances to bear my testimony to others who are struggling. I know she is an incredible little spirit, and that she wants nothing more than for us to be happy! Being the mom of a sweet little angel is amazing and heart wrenching at the same time. She still tugs at my heartstrings! I love my Brenna more than anything in this world, she will always have my heart!
