Dear Rex

Yesterday was your fourth birthday. We had a nice dinner all together and then everyone wrote you a birthday letter and tied it to a balloon (that were Buzz Lightyear colors, of course!) We took all of the balloons and fireworks to the cemetary and sent you your birthday cards to heaven. We also lit fireworks around your grave, we know you loved that. We all got a book full of pictures of you that was all about your life and we will cherish it forever! The only thing missing was you, but we know you were close by celebrating with us. We love you Rexy and miss you so much. That picture of you and Taylor on the horse is his favorite and I love it too. Happy Birthday!!!

Engagement Day

Thanks Tiff for hiding and taking this picture! I love itIt has already been one whole year since Taylor proposed to me. (well, on the 7th.) I can't believe how fast time flies! It was such a fun day. We had dinner at my parents house with both of our families and Taylor and I sat on the big swing in the backyard. For some reason, I didn't realize that everyone had gone inside and left us outside alone. We were just talking on the swing when Crew came around the house and gave me a rose. I may be stupid, but I honestly didn't think anything of it. He was in this stage where he would give flowers to people so I just thought he found it somewhere. But slowly, one by one, every single niece and nephew from from youngest to oldest (except for Monroe and Livie because they were too little) brought me a rose. Then our oldest niece Kadrie brought a huge bouquet of roses and lillies that had the ring box inside. Taylor stood us up, said some really sweet things, and got down on one knee! It was so fun and special. I never thought I wanted people around when I got engaged but it was really fun to have all of our family waiting inside to run out and be excited with us! OH and I got the ring of my dreams, so that was cool too. I love you boo- thanks for being so thoughtful!
