"It's Christmas Time In The City!"

 New York City defiantly knows how to do Christmas time! We had so much fun
going to Rockefeller Plaza, Radio City and Macy's.
It defiantly got me in the Christmas spirit!

ourLast Goodbye

So today was the day!! I Am SO proud of my Brother!!

Today i was watching a YouTube video of a convert talking about missionary work and he said something that i had nerver really thought about.. he said, " missionarys families give up a loved one for two years, so that their son/daughter can give families like mine Eternity together."

I just started to cry because that is so true. I was blessed to have a family that is already sealed together forever and we have the gospel in our lifes.  As tough as it is to send him off, what he is going to do the next two years is something not a lot of  people get the chance to do.

It was nice growing up with someone like you - someone to lean on, someone to count on... someone to tell on! :)

                                                                kelby picking his nose!
                                                                  ahh  weren't we so cute
                                                      swimming in grandmas new Jacuzzi
                                                   probably the one time kelby attempted to read
                                            Las Vegas Airport. when I went to the Philippians
New baby brother   

                                                           SANTA!!!! I KNOW HIM!!

Sooo who knew that telling one of your best friends good bye for two years would be one of the hardest things to do??  
Well, I recently had to do just that.. I tried thinking of all the times where I truly wanted to kill him ( trust me there are a lot of those!!)  but all I could think about how much im going to miss him!! 
we go way back like umm 19 years! We have always supported each other in just about everything! between me going to EVERY sporting event and him going to Every Choir Concert. there was nothing we wouldn't do to show we supported each other.
Kelby was always the quite innocent one and of course I was the Exact opposite. So when kelby came up with an evil plan, I usually got blamed for it! yup my life story!! 
One day kelby and I were fighting (which we did alot of when we were younger!)  He hit me with a N64 paddle and so I decided to stab him in the leg with a pencil who do you think got in trouble?? Yup you guessed it ME!  He is very good at getting my mom to side with him! 
As we grew up things kinda changed he wasn't just my younger annoying brother anymore he became my best friend! We went to high school only for a year together but it was SO much fun! My group of friends and his group of friends became one BIG group of friends! He always seems to know what to say to me to make me smile, he would be the first person to kick someone butt for me! 
I AM SO PROUD of him and he decision to go on a mission! I know it defiantly wasn't easy but I know he is going to make an amazing missionary! I'm going to miss his hugs that pretty much kill you, his Gansta rap music that is BLASTING while he is driving or showering. I'm going to miss his random phone calls and text messages! 
2 years isn't really that long when you think about.. okay it kinda is! but knowing that he is going to find families and bring them to know the truth of the church has got be one of the most amazing feelings in the world.

One Fine Fall Afternoon

One thing I LOVE about living so close to New York City is that I can go to church and then walk 
a couple block to central park. 
We had no idea that this particular sunday was the NYC Marathon it was really cool to watch how many people ran it! 
Central Park is Absolutely beautiful this time of year! Perfect Sunday afternoon with some of my BEST Friends!!
