Photos of Ty & Jack

Tyler was not being very cooperative so most of his pictures didn't turn out too great. I love this one of Jack. You can see more photos at

Jesus is real

Today at church a boy bore his testimony that he believed in Jesus Christ. Tyler asked me "What does he mean believe in Jesus?" I replied "it means he thinks Jesus is real." Tyler very sure of himself says to me "of course Jesus is real mom." What a sweet spirit my Tyler has, he never ceases to impress me with the things he knows, and the correct feelings he has.

Snow in Arizona

We recently returned from a wonderful trip to Flagstaff Arizona. The Arizona Lauricella's joined us for some fun in the snow. The cabin we stayed at was about 7 miles south of Flagstaff, and included everything you could want for adventure in the snow. The views were breath taking and the weather was perfect. Tyler and Jessica enjoyed their first real sledding experience, I couldn't decide who enjoyed themselves more. I enjoyed the beauty of the snow as the sun created thousands of sparkles on it's surface. Jessica had never seen the sun shine on the snow creating the beautiful sparkles.
Tyler Jack, Nate, and Sam all enjoyed being together and jumping around like crazy little boys. I think this needs to be a yearly tradition. It was so nice to get out of the city, and enjoy the beauty of a winter wonderland.
I thought our neighboring cabin was very cute with its rainbow colored exterior.Jack Loved his new Spider man gloves, aunt Jessica found for him. Tyler was pretending to be a moose.

Tyler loved having hot chocolate after sledding with Jessica.
The boys dug in the snow with sand toys. They enjoyed trowing and kicking the snow over the side of the deck.
