The Best Belated Valentines Day

Well James and I didn't do very much on the real Valentine's Day because we had a late one already planned. We don't have very good pictures to show, because they were taken with our phones, but it was AMAZING!!!

So we went to a Rascal Flatts concert. It was incredible. Jessica Simpson opened for them, she was pretty good . . . but Rascal Flatts- were fantastic. That was better than the Tim McGraw concert that I went to. It was really the best concert that I could go to because there isn't a song of theirs that I don't love! We were belting out the songs, and they were very entertaining. We had an LDS dad with three of his teenage and pre-teen daughters sitting in front of us. It was fun because it was totally a concert that was family appropriate. And it was really fun to see a dad enjoying the music along with his three girls. That's probably one concert that I'll want to go to again. Thanks babe, that was the best present!

What is IIAC?

Well I don't have a lot of contact with my dads family, but my aunt Alese just had I guess a still birth. She was almost eight months along and they found out that the baby had died so they had to induce labor and she had to deliver this baby. And we had a funeral for the baby last Tuesday. We found out that it was Idiopathic Infantile Arterial Calcification which was even more sad to find out. It is a really rare disease and both parents have to be carriers of this disease in order for the child to have it. But the veins and the arteries start to calcify and the heart basically explodes. It was really sad for them since they've already had a lot of heartache this year. We're praying for them as they're starting a research foundation for this disease the website is

I don't know if I've mentioned on here before, but James and I are primary teachers in our ward. It's pretty fun, we teach the only primary kids in our ward which are a couple of boys. It is unpredictable because one of them is three and the other is four. It's amazing sometimes how much they know, and sometimes what they say. Today for instance, I was trying to give the lesson, while James was trying to keep them in their seats. The four year old came up to James and grabbed his finger with two of his and said "Skidoosh" for those who haven't seen Kung Fu Panda, I definitely recommend it, because it makes the actions and words of this four year old seem so much more meaningful. We love our calling, since kids really do say the darnedest things!
