DeYtOn KaSh SoReNsOn

This is Ry and I's sweet nephew Deyton Kash Sorenson.
Tears are streaming down my face as I write this post today. My heart is filled with Love, pain, heartache, confusion, and peace. I received a text from Krystal Deytons mom while I was out for my morning run on Tuesday that there son was coming that day. I was so excited for them. If any one knows Krystal and Derek they are two of the neatest, strongest, and greatest individuals I have ever met. Krystal is the best mommmy and Derek the Proudest dad as you can see in this picture of Derek and Deyton below. He was born on Tuesday night and he weighed 8 lbs 6 oz. and IDENTICAL TO HIS DADDY. Kiss didn't have any medicine or anything while delivering him. That is unbelievable to me. We wished we could have been there. I received a call from Ryan on Wed saying that Lisa would be calling in a minute with worry in his voice. I quickly became concerned and he shorty explained that Deytons heart had not been fully developed and that they were life flying him up to Primary Childrens Hospital. He hung up and Within seconds Lisa called and explained it to me a little more in detail. My heart broke. I began to sob and then pulled it together so that Ry and I could say a prayer for Deyton and his mom and dad. We felt Helpless as we are so Far away in Dallas. We got tickets and headed to the Airport. We were flying stand by and we were bumped off of so many flights it was so discouraging Thursday passed and then We tried again the following day. I just knew how important it was for Ry to get to Utah to support is Little Sister. I Kept praying and praying that we would get on a flight. We finally made it to Utah and to the Hospital. We imediatley went in the room to see them. Kiss and Ry embraced and I went over to hug Derek and he looked me in the eyes and said this is my BOY. I lost it.... It sure is Derek. What a proud dad. We sat there for a while and chatted and were given more details there were two choices one a heart transplant, which wouldn't guarantee anything he would probably spend his whole life in the hospital or they take him home and enjoy every minute that they had with them. That night at 9:00 they gave him a name and a blessing. I have never listened and been present for a stronger blessing. Derek was very in tune with our Heavenly Father. They decided to take Deyton home. What a hard decision but it was so right and you could feel that in the room. We stuck around until about midnight and then went to the hotel. The next morning we went back and they were getting him already to go home. You could tell on Derek and Krystal's faces just how at peace they were and excited that they were taking their little tough guy home. They arrived home in St. George with a welcome sign and balloons and family there to greet them. They go to bathe him and took pictures he got to be in his room. Ry and I had to split and he went down to St. George and I came back here to get things taken care of and so this morning I was at the Airport about to get on the airplane and Ry called saying not to get on the plane and to come to St. George. I didn't know what to do but I felt like I should come home and then go back when things were taken care of here. When I arrived home I called Ry and Deyton had been fighting for his life. Kiss and Derek just kept repeating to him that it was ok to go home. He went home to Our Heavenly father at 11:10 this morning. I completely broke down at the airport. Derek, Kiss and Deyton. I want you to know how much Ry Oak ad I love you guys. Thank you for your example and strength. For your testimonies and your unwavering faith. I can just imagine those that were there to greet him. He came to earth to do what he needed to. To gain a body and Return to our Heavenly Father. I'm sure he is telling everyone how wonderful it was and what incredible parents he has. Thank you Deyton for being a light in our lives. WE LOVE YOU. LOVE YOUR UNCLE RYAN AND MANDI AND COUSIN OAKLEIGH

This WEEK I had to be a single mom!!!

This week my husband was not home at all. They made the guys go to a new Area in Wichita Falls TX which is about two and a half hours away from here so they just got hotels. I am so thankful that I have my sweet Ryan. This job has definetly been a challenge to me. I get discouraged and feel down. Message to Oak: Thanks for putting up with mommy even though i get a little frustrated and why you ask? I have no idea you are perfect and you sit in the office all day long and never complain about anything. You sometimes get a little bored but you are so cute. YOu usually find something to do even if is just playing with an empty box. YOur the best I love you Oak. Jess you are wonderful as well. My little sis is out here and she helps keep me sane she is always so willing to help or to listen or to hug me when I cry even though sometimes I don't want a hug. I'm kind of a brat. But I am trying so hard. Thanks for all who have put up with me this last little while. My GOAL for this next week patience. and not to get discouraged. Only a few more weeks. We can do it!!!! Here are some pictures from this week...

I want to wish my twin a HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!!
Where do I even begin to describe how much I love and respect this WOMAN.
Mick has been my other half forever. She is my best friend, she makes me laugh on a daily basis. Whether she be dancing, singing little funny songs, telling me about her day, quoting movies, talking about michael jackson, she is so FUNNY!!!
She is REAL, mick doesn't sugar coat anything she is very real with you. I love and admire that about her. She always has great advice. Sometimes I don't want to always hear it because I am stubborn and think my way is correct she is usually one hundred percent correct. She is determined. She has so many talents, whether it be scrapbooking, home decorating, cooking, sports, dancing, clothes buying she has the greatest sense of style, loving- the girl is a lover and is so passionate about her everything. She is so talented and has the "EYE" behind the lense. She is so sweet and would do anything for any one. She is the best Aunt she wants a picture of Oak everyday and tells me how much she loves her. She will be the best mommy in the world. I am so excited for when that day comes cause those kids are going to be so lucky. As I write this post I am crying because I miss my Mick, She is shooting a wedding today on her birthday and I hope that goes well and that she gets to do something fun tonight. Mick I love you here are lots of Pictures like you requested. HAPPY BIRTHDAY

Oak loves her bear.

This was my bear I think my mom and dad got it for me. Any way my mom was going to throw it away and we decided to take it home. Boy am I glad we did Oaks loves it she plays with her bear and her baby all the time. She is all girl for sure. Even today when I laid her down for her nap she started to fuss and I put her bear right next to her and told her it was taking a nap and she snuggled up right to it and she to fell asleep.

It's birthday week!!!

Well it's birthday week (as micka calls it) and at the request of Aunt Mikki we are blogging for the second day in a row. Just wait until tomorrow aunt Mick-
I use this as my journal as well so here is an update on what Oak is up to these days. She is the cutest girl in the world. She laughs a lot. She will see an animal or a picture and she will go this little laugh it is so funny. This past sunday in Relief society we had just listened to a great lesson and then it was time to bare testimonies. And this lady was up there baring her soul and Oak was laughing this goofy little laugh and I was trying so hard not to laugh. I started to look around trying to figure out what she was laughing at and it was this little frog on this car seat she just thought he was the funnniest little toad. I felt so bad I apologized and then shared my testimony. She is singing lots. All kinds of fun songs. Her favorite the little mermaid. Sing to me aaaa, aaaa, aaaa. She dances. I'll sing Shake shake shake, shake your booty and she moves her cute little body. And the other song is Boom Boom Pow? I think it's called by the black eyed peas. I'll go... Boom boom boom sissy go boom boom boom and she loves it and she dances. Bobbin her head and moving her arms from side to side. She loves to EAT, her favorites are, chicken nuggets, bananas which she ends up painting everything around her with it. She loves gold fish and pretzels. And sometimes fruit snacks. She likes tater tots too!!! Ice cream she gets sour cold face and then she loves it.
One of her other favorite things to do is when I am trying to change her bum she thinks it is a game and wants to run around on the bed. I'll say I'm going to get you and she will laugh so hard and then face plant it as she tries to go faster on the bed. most of the time she is bare bummed and she gets going and her cute little booty gets a shakin. She is so great!!!
She loves her dad. We don't get to see him until right before bed and she gets so excited when she sees him and then she just wants to hold him and she falls asleep in his arms. It is so cute it melts my heart.

These cute pictures are of her eating some fruit she has so much personality and she is trying to talk so much it is adorable!!!
