Happy Birthday Shane!!!

Today is Shane's 31st birthday and so here is Shane's birthday post!
I just want everyone that reads my blog to know that I love this guy. (EWWW gush gush......... sorry) He is the most genuine, kind, sweet, laid back kind of guy. Everyone loves "Scooter". I love that his friends still call him that. He got that nickname from being so fast in high school playing football. When Shane gets goofy he is so cute...that is one of the many things that drew me to him. Shane is the funnest daddy and I love it when I see his face light up when Tatum does something cute for him. I love it when Shane sings at the top of his makes me laugh especially when he says "I could be a singer if I wanted to huh babe!?"He can rap any old school rap song you have ever heard. I dare you to test him. He is good at anything that requires coordination. He is a snowboarding maniac and wishes we could go more. He is my little skater man...he can still skate and it is fun to watch him...he says that he "sucks"but I think that he is wonderful. He works so hard and supports us very well and I really repect that. He gets me and I get him. Shane and I have lots of fun together and I am glad to call him my best friend. I always say that eternity is not long enough to spend with him. I need more time. Babe......I got you babe! I love you. Happy birthday Shane!!!!

Well today is a very bittersweet day. My beautiful grandma passed away at 82 this afternoon. She was so special to me. I remember when I was little how fun it was to go over to her house. I remember her bright cheery voice would sing "Hi Shelley! How are ya?" and whenever I would ask for something she would say "Well sure!" She would let us cut roses from the back fence. She had blackberries growing on the side of the fence. Mmmmm! She was a beautician so she always got us mini lipstick samples. Those were the BEST! She would paint our nails and make us good food in the kitchen....she was a great cook. I remember the mini blue wavy cups we grandkids would drink milk out of and have our oreos in the kitchen. The spend the nights and the huge bathtub baths. Her blue toilet and the hair dryer in the spare room and many more things. I have always looked to her good example as a wonderful missionary, she was a wonderful mother, wife and grandmother. Her spiritual strength helped my testimony to grow tremendously throughout my life. I admire the way she loved my grandpa. It was hard to see him lose her. Real hard. My grandpa has always had a special place in my heart and to see him sad like that is down right traumatizing. I wish I could take it all away. He will get better. Time will make things easier. He will have us. We will have each other. Love you grandma. Hope that I can pay a good enough tribute to you when I sing at your funeral in a couple days. A life like yours deserves one heck of a musical number. I hope I can do that job.

Happy Holidays!!

A Merry Christmas t0 all!Hope you had a good one.

Christmas Eve!
This is me and my little cousin Jenna Lee.She has the most amazing voice ever.My sisters and I were supposed to sing what child is this at the annual Hatch family Christmas party and when they announced that we were supposed to go up there...they chickened out.They SUCK and are on my black checklist!Jenna didn't have time to get a piece together and really was bummed about that and so when my sisters wouldn't get up she said from the back of the room in a little voice "I want to sing!"So up she came and we sang.She kicked my butt at singing but I think that we sounded pretty good together.Jenna is Awesome!

These cute Breinholt cousins have so much fun together.They are spinning around getting "dizzy".I had to take these because they were laughing so hard and having so much fun.

We went to a get together at the Turley's house and Santa came and gave all the kids presents.This Santa FREAKED her out.It was so funny because she usually runs to Santa.It was the fake beard.
Tatum and I went to visit Nash or as Tatum calls him"BIG boy" while my mom was tending him in Tucson.My sister and brother in law went on a cruise. Must be nice.We had tons of fun just playing with him.He is a crack up and too cute to boot.
So busy trying to make Christmas "perfect" that I forgot to put my precious girl to bed.Sorry Tatum!!!!!(Elmo must really like what he is watching on TV)
Last Chance shopping with Emily and Carly.You can't see it but we have three shopping carts FULL in that little elevator.Christmas shopping with these two was SOOOOO fun!Lets do it again. How about Jan 2nd girls?
Shy on Santa's lap????
The face of wildness!

First off I would like to say Merry Christmas to everyone(a day late) and that oh my......I can't believe it has been almost a month since I have blogged.We have had a crazy month and blogging although kinda fun...I guess it isn't my no 1 priority. We had such a great Christmas this year. Now that Tatum is two she can more or less understand a little bit about Christmas and we had fun teaching her about it this year. Of course we taught her the true meaning of Christmas but we couldn't resist the whole Santa thing.SHE LOVES SANTA.It was fun bringing her out on Christmas morning to see her eyes bug out when she saw that Santa had brought her.... an Artic Cat power wheels.COOL!It is hilarious to see her drive it.She has learned to reverse it. She can be a quick whit when she wants to be. We hope that all of you had wonderful Christmas's too.Thanks for reading this! Above are some fun holiday...month of December highlight pictures.
