Our little Rockstars!

Our little grandbabies are almost a month old! It is amazing to me how in one moment you are not be sure you can make it and then you can reflect on the same experience a month later with a new outlook! Life is incredible! My testimony of Heavenly Father and his Love for his children continues to strengthen me! Weston and Addison are both off of their ventilators and unhooked from all IV's! The Neonatologist called them Rockstars! Jackie and Justin are adjusting to this new life of driving back and forth to Ogden to see thier little ones. It is fun to hear from them each day as they tell us more about the babies. They are going to be great parents! We are now off to the lake for a few weeks with cousins! YAH! Summer is really here!

I have been reminded recently of the value of my family. I have been blessed to be the daughter, wife, mother, sister and friend to worlds greatest people. They help remind me that the darkest hour has only 60 minutes. Thank you for all your constant prayers & support in my families behalf. We have felt the needed strength and peace in the last few weeks.

My whole family was together for the 4th of July weekend. Steve and all the kids came to see Jackie & Justin and the babies. It was cute to see their reactions to their little niece and nephew. Babies are such a nice way to start people. Lauren kept trying to talk Jackie and Justin into letting her have them because they were so cute! It was a little harder for Derek to stay in the NICU. Savannah just can't wait for them to be bigger and kiss on them. Grace didn't get to go in to see them because she isn't 14 and is pretty sad about that. Jackie and Justin told her she can be the first to hold them when they come home. she is counting on that! It was pretty emotional for all of us to see such sweet little spirits having to fight so hard! It is amazing to me the love you feel for such little spirits! Addison and Weston continue to do well, they are now both off of the ventilators and are growing and progressing!

Also I posted some pictures of the other things we did while we were in Utah before all the excitement started!
