Happy Birthday Rose!

Today is Rose's birthday. I can't believe it has been an entire year since my 24 hour labor with this firecracker. She has truly blessed our lives in so many and wonderful ways. Being a parent is everything I thought it would be, and everything I didn't, and more. I can now understand how our Heavenly Father feels about each one of us and I am grateful for His incomprehensible sacrifice of His son.
Here are some pictures of Rose's pinwheel party yesterday. I got many (okay most) of my ideas from this fabulous party And yes we made everything from the pinwheels to the cake to the banner. It was fun making everything for our little girl.

We are going to dental college to get more dental knowledge...and family pics

So we are definitely going to Lincoln! No other offers came our way but who cares (all you need is one)! We both love the school and the city and I think it will be fabulous. We will leave around the beginning of the sumemr and I am already looking at housing (no, I'm not excited).

On another note, we got family pictures taken about 3 months ago. I've been trying my skills at photoshop which is why I have taken so long to post but here they are. They seem like forever ago because Rose only has 3 teeth and now she has 8.
Can anybody tell me why they look grainy on the blog? When I print them out they look fabulous. Oh well. Rose turns 1 in three days! Can't believe it.

dental school here we come!

Baby Rose and I just wanted to say...Congratulations Dad! The hub got up this morning at 2am and checked his email. Dec 1st is a long awaited day for those trying to get into dental school and he did it! As of yet, we are accepted at Lincoln, Ne and so excited. There could still be more acceptances to come but right now we are pretty darn happy and feel very blessed that the Lord has heard and answered many prayers (and that we don't have to wait any longer to know). Thanks to everyone for all your support and prayers on our behalf. We love you. GO BIG RED!
