Birthday Pictures








The carrot cake has long been eaten but the little princess still wears her blue gown daily.  I can't believe two years has flown by as fast as it has.  I can't believe that 3 months has flown by since this birthday happened and we moved to Utah.  It seems that time moves faster now that I am getting older.  I anticipate things in terms of years instead of days.  And yet, those times when I let the dishes sit in the sink and toss out plans of a homemade meal and just sit and play dolls, the world stops spinning and for a second or a month or maybe forever, it really does feel like magic.

THe other day I was telling Tristin that I wish I could just close my eyes and go into hybernation for a whole year and then open my eyes again and he will be back home. But I would be missing out on a whole years worth of family and friends that I will never be able to get back. Lilly looks like a little girl in an add adverising a wonderful life if you just buy this and that. It's nice to know that all of this is FREE if you just take the time to see and feel the moment. I'm so happy for you guys. I miss you, but I know that you're loved as much over there as you are here and it makes my heart smile to know you guys are happy.
