Emeri's 11th month

Precious little Emeri is 11 months old now. She has grown into quite the young lady.  She prefers anything I am eating over her baby food jars, she giggles at the end of each stanza when we sing 'I am a child of God,' and she wants to be doing everything her brothers do. When Isaac and Andrew are upstairs playing, Emeri is constantly trying to climb the stairs, when they play down stairs she never attempts the stairs, and when they are outside, she is immediately at the window with longing eyes and squeals. Emeri also loves to fold her arms when it is time to pray, of course because her brothers do it, and she also loves to join in singing when they do. It is hilarious to watch her imitate them. Emeri just can't wait to be a big girl. 

Emeri loves her Cinderella tea pot toys. She doesn't play tea parties yet but she loves to take everything out of the pot and put everything back in.

Walking towards mommy with only one hand for support. She is getting closer. 

Happy Precious Petite Pretty Princess! Emeri now has two teeth but you still can't see them when she talks. Only when she gives her big cheesy smile do they appear.

I love putting her hair in a pony tail. It is tooooo cute!

I know this picture is a little blurry and discolored but I love her smile here. This is Emeri's genuine smile of pure delight and laughter. What a little girl.

Close up. She is getting some cheeks now. We think she actually weighs more then Bryce now. What can I say, the girl loves her carbs.

Happy 5th Year Anniversary to Us!

WAHOOOO!!!! 5 years baby!!!!! We did it!!!! These past 5 years have been the happiest years of my life. I have been so blessed by our Father in Heaven to have a man like you. A man who is kind, gentle, loving, strong, faithful, forgiving, loving, and super funny. Each year I fall more and more in love with you. You are my best friend and my eternal companion. We have a long road ahead of us but I know that it will be the greatest journey because it will be with you. I love you Austin!
That night we went out to eat at the Melting Pot and enjoyed a quiet evening together. The picture we are holding is our engagement picture that was taken 5 years ago. Man we have aged. lol Can't wait for the 10th year picture! When we got home we wrote each other a letter about where we think we will be in 5 more years. Apparently, Austin thinks we will have two more children and an adopted one. lol On June 26th 2018 we will read each others letters to see if we were right. I am so EXCTED!!!

30 year pictures

Okay 30 years we are all going to get back together in this exact spot and take these exact same photos. What a great group of girls! Love you all tons and hope to get together again soon.

Fun with family from out of town

 On Thursday all of us girls went shopping at the oh so famous Sam Moon. It was hilarious to see how much Aunt Teri loved the store. She said she hadn't even been to half of it during the two hours we were there. It was super fun and a nice way to get us out of the house. Then after Sam Moon we went to the Cheese Cake Factory. Their red velvet cheese cake was delicious!

 The Saturday after the funeral we all went to the temple together.

Then on Sunday we played a huge family game of crokay!

Jeffrey Steven Heath

No words can describe this experience so all I am going to say is that we believe in the Restoration of Jesus Christ and in his atonement.  Thank you to all the family who dropped everything to come and support us. Thank you to our ward who has given us so much help and strength as well. 

The burial service.

All five sons and Jeff's brother were the pallbearers. 

Jeff's siblings: Judy, Mike, and Debbie.

 After the service these lovely sisters in the ward gave our family a nice red, white, and blue lunch in.


Kadi caught a tarantula in the yard and showed it to all the kids.
