1. As a comment on my blog, leave one memory that you and I had together. It doesn't matter if you knew me a little or a lot, anything you remember!

2. Next, re-post these instructions on your blog and see how many people leave a memory about you. It's actually pretty funny to see the responses. If you leave a memory about me, I'll assume you're playing the game and I'll come to your blog and leave one about you.If you don't want to play on your blog, or if you don't have a blog, I'll leave my memory of you in my comments.

My Girls

Something I love more than anything else in the world is to spend time with my nieces and nephews. I'm sad that I don't get to do it as much as I would like, or as long as I like, but I love whenever I get to see them. Aspen(AKA: Spen) and Liberty (AKA: Libby) I was able to see the most of since I lived in the same city, so it's been so fun for me watching them grow up. I've been able to see them blessed, watched them take swimming lessons, attended all their birthday parties, had several sleepovers with them, and basically been able to play with them whenever I have wanted or needed to. Probably the hardest part of leaving Utah for me will be not being able to see them as much. I love these girls so much. I love the way they can make me laugh, the way they hug me when they haven't seen me for a while, or the way they won't let me go when I'm leaving. I love how different but unique they both are. Aspen is the cuddler. She will hug and love you to the extreme. She is great to cuddle with during a movie. Libby is hilarious. The comments she says, the way she sings or talks to herself when she's playing Barbies, always makes me laugh. I can always guarantee that I will leave them feeling happier, and better about life. I was able to spend a little bit of time with them yesterday, so here are some pics. from that. Libby didn't really want to pose, as you can tell! I love you Aspen and Libby!
