Mom: "Hunter what are you going to ask Santa for for Christmas?"
Hunter: "um....I think a little brother!"
Mom: "Honey Santa doesn't bring brothers."
Hunter: "Then who do I need to ask?"

Where does he come up with this stuff?

Pumpkin Carving

pretty self explanatory

Proud Mom Moment

My Mom, Sister and I went to the paper store the other day. They have a play area, and so I sent Hunter back there so I could find some paper in peace. My mom went back to check on him and he had asked another little boy if he wanted to play with him. The other Boy said yes, so Hunter knelt down at the little table and started to say a prayer. When he got up he told us they were playing Sacrament. It was so cute. I am so proud of him. He is turning into such an amazing loving little boy.

Five months later....

HOLY CRAP! Where to start. I'm going to post a quick run down on what happened during the summer months. In June Hunter and I went with both his Grandmas, my two sisters and little niece to California. It was a lot of first for Hunter. We had a ton of fun!
It was Hunters first trip on an airplane. He has been obsessed with airplanes and was so excited to fly on one.
My two youngest step sisters live in Cali with their mom, so we got to spend the week with them. It was a blast to hang out with them. Hunter has only seen them together once, so he was a little confused as to why there were two of them, and why both their names weren't Lourtney. Our first day there we went to the beach. It was Hunters fist trip to the ocean, and he couldn't get enough of the water or the sand.

The next few days we spent at Disneyland. This was another first for Hunter. He loved most the rides, but went on them all. He was tall enough for every ride at Disneyland and most at California adventure. His favorite character was Goofy. He was so excited to meet. We had such a great time at Disneyland, I've already started saving my money so we can go back in the spring!

We have a family reunion every year with my Tye family. We go camping in the Uintas. This year Hunter got to go fishing. He caught, cooked, and ate his very first fish. He was so excited to have caught the fish, but did not want to touch it. I can't say I blame him, I didn't really want to touch it either. So we owe a big thanks to my cousin Thayne who saved both Hunter and I from having to touch a slimy gross fish!

What the Crap!

Hunter: "I can't my Doctor told me not to"

As some of you know my sweet, amazing, wonderful Grandma passed away four weeks ago yesterday. Last night at work I was thinking about how glad I am that I have a testimony of the Church, and a knowledge of eternal families. I started to think about a few experiences that happened the week of my grandmas passing, and wanted to share them.
Both experiences happened on the day of the viewing. My grandma was sick for the last two years of her life,and several times a week I had the privilege of helping her care for her self on a daily basis. The morning of the viewing I had the opportunity to care for her one last time and get her dressed in her temple clothes. Once we were done I went home and was very emotional. Hunter and I were in his room playing toys and I was crying. He asked me what was wrong. I told him I was sad because Grandma went to Heaven and I would really miss her. He Told me "It's ok mom. When Jesus comes her will have her body back and she can live with Grandpa Tone Tone (Grandpa Tony) and her will even be able to walk, and play again. If you want you can sleep in my bed till You feel better." ( I am balling right now...seriously I don't know what happened to me but I am a freaken boob.)
The next experience was on the way to the viewing. Hunter wanted to ride in the car with my Mom and Dad. On the way to the viewing my amazing Mom was explaining to Hunter that Grandma would look different, that her spirit went to live with Jesus, and tonight we would just see her body. He thought for a minute and then asked her "when we see Grandma will she have holes in her hands?" I am amazed that he could think it through and put the fact that after Jesus died he had holes in his hands, and maybe grandma would too. Also I wonder what he still remembers.
Hunter is such a caring compassionate person already. Every time we went to Grandmas to take care of her he would rub her feet, hug her, or try to help feed her. He can tell when I am upset or having a bad day, and he always tries to cheer me up. I am so blessed to have him, and am thankful for the choices I have made in my life so he and I can be an eternal family. I am so grateful for My savior and all the help he has given me. I know with out him my life right now would be impossible. ( Sorry I didn't mean for this to turn into testimony meeting). He is my best friend and I thank the Lord for him every day.
