We will Endure!

Today I felt like giving up!

I really truly didn't feel like I had anything left to give.

Giving my whole life is all that I know...

How can I take care of Everything!  I just felt so.... unfeeling.  If that is possible, Unfeeling is the way that I felt.

But.... Here I am,  Home from work, away from all the stress of live..

I have a refuge, I realized today that I do have a refuge!  I can walk into the front door of my Home, and the unfeeling person I was earlier,  now has feelings, I can breath again.

Well now that I am feeling again I was uploading pictures off  of my phone, of the events of the last couple of weeks!

And when I realize ALL of the GIVING that people have done for me, I realize that ..... Well...  I think I really truly take more than I give, and I think the word for that is, Selfishness,  I was so preoccupied will all of the things going on I didn't take a look back at ALL that people GIVE to me!  I was like a black Hole,  taking everything from people, and not giving anything Back really!  There are so many around me, who need help, who need comfort, and I am too busy pitying myself for what I give, that I don't even take the time to help others in need.  When others truly are taking time to give to me!

I am truly grateful for those wonderful people in my life, who teach me life lessons,  and Today I learned a Lesson!  Being Selfish is So not good for the soul!

Being a mom is hard work!  But I know without a doubt that my heavenly father has given me my children because they need me, and I need them!  I desire nothing more than to teach, nurture, love, and strengthen the testimony of my children, so that we can All make it back to our Heavenly Father, and Jesus Christ!  I want to Endure to the end, and that is what this earthly life is about.

I know that as long as we obey the lords commandments, and have faith,  That we will!

Heart full of Thankfulness

Today is Titan's birthday!  He turned 4 years old.  So since we as parents are very impatient...  (Braden)  we decided to let him open his presents on Tuesday night :)  He got a warthog and Halo Guys... from the video game,  and a new Nerf gun with some Bullets... Which he loves to shoot because its AUTOMATIC... which means he doesn't have to do any pumping!  

Last Saturday we went to a couple of football games!  This is my nephew stone with his team the "Vikings"

Victoria & Titan were having fun playing a game of their own.

Bridget and Daddy just waiting in the car.

For Titans birthday we went to Rexburg, and ate some food, with a few cousins, and played at the park!

Just this past week at work

Titan's Cousin Cole, has a hat just like this so he BEGGED his dad to get it for him at sportsmans.

They really are the best of friends (most of the time)

He got this IRONMAN costume for his birthday! and he loves it.

Over all it really was a great past week, and I am yet again very thankful for my family, and so appreciate everything that I have been given in life!  I can't say it has been easy, but it has all definitely been worth it!

1st day of Preschool..... Say WHAT????

So I have been a "little" :)  Behind on blogging.... when I first started in July I had decided I would try to keep up just by doing a post each week!  That way it wouldn't interfere with my time!  I didn't want to do one more thing that I felt I needed to keep up on.  But today as I was "catching up" on our important happenings the last couple of months I realized, just how blessed I am!  Our Family has grown so much in the last 4 years since Titan was born!  I am so thankful for eternal families and the knowledge that I have!  I can't wait for the what the future brings.

OH TITAN.... It was his first day of preschool on the 7th, and it was soooo hard for me!

Titan has 2 cousins that are in the SAME class as him,  and I was VERY fearful for his teacher, having these three little boys together.  But she did separate them!  And it has actually been very GREAT for Titan because he has opened up a bit more than normal, because he's usually pretty shy :).  

Titan . Cole . Jacob

On There first day of School they learned about Our Solar System!  He got to take a flashlight!  and He couldn't stop talking about all the planets!!  

The next week he was learning about the letter "A" and learning to CUT with scissors!  
He has truly Loved getting up each morning, getting himself dressed in his "school clothes"!  He has grown up!  and It just means that I am getting older :(  

Family Reunion..

Every year on Labor Day weekend, the Briggs Family has our reunion.  My mother-in-law has a theme that she throws together, (usually ALL OUT)  and we all have A LOT of fun together.
In the past years we've done themes like....  Hawaiian Lou a,  Pioneer with handcarts, Marti-gra, * Fear factor,
We this year it was Cave Man / Dinosaur.

We did many things.. the kids painted dinosaurs, we had a feast on sunday night, of Turkey Legs, and finger foods,  We did a "Bone Dig" where the kids dug up bones that she had previously buried!  The kids also got to find Dinosaur eggs...  plus the weekend was full of just family fun!  Playing cards games, great conversation around the camp fire, and of course a weekend full of great food!

Braden did not want to get all dressed up!!!!!  But he was an "OK" sport about it.

Our Titan was having a lot of fun!

** Bret Michaels Band**

So Last night we watched the Brett Michael's Band at the Civic in Idaho Falls, ...... Seriously it was awesome!  I fell in love with Mr. Michaels, after watching him week after week on the Celebrity Apprentice!  He is kind of a womanizer apparently but, I love his spunky & fresh style of life, and he is a darn good entertainer with an Awesome voice!!

I only wish I would have taken my good camera... instead of using my ipone :(  This is me and the Drummer!! He was soooo entertaining!!

We were so close the the stage.. on the 3rd row just behind the mosh pit!

Braden.. kind of cooperating for a photo!

Me* & Brenna*  my sister-in-law! Her husband Jim is an EMT, so they go to all the local events!  It was a pleasant surprise to see her there.  

I had to get a shot of one of these gals!!  I just walked up to her and asked to take her picture, and she said " Oh yeah go a head!"  then she posed for me...  (what a crazy chick).

Bret Michaels, Trailer :)

The LONG line to get in!!  Luckily we had Anthany... a good friend, on the inside saving us seats!!!

I had to put up a picture of my baby boy!! Cause I was really really not wanting to leave him even for just a few hours!!  But Bryken stayed with my sister-in-law Tammy, and he was super good!  He had never had formula before so I was a really nervous, but he did great and I was only gone for 5 hours!  And after it was all said and done I was seriously glad that Braden "MADE" me go :)
