This is my Bother Brett and his cute little Family.
I was on my Cousins blog the other day and she has some friends that just adopted a baby.
They were only on the list for 2 weeks when they got the call that they were picked.
(This is a Terrific thing for them)
However I have a little brother and sister (All my sister In-laws are my Sisters so that's what I call them)
Brett and Nikki they tried for like 4 years to get pregnant with many miscarriage's and disappointments along the way.
They finally had my very Handsome, very cute nephew Ethan. We call him the miracle baby.
Anyway he is almost 5 and they have been trying again for about the last 4 years for a baby. They are also going through LDS Services to adopt. They have been going to classes and everything that they need to to get a precious baby.
This is a little background for the story I really wanted to share.......
Ethan has been dying for a brother or a sister ever since he could talk.
He has dolls that are not dolls but they are in fact his brothers or sisters, he doesn't care what gender he just wants a sibling.
I have never seen a child want something so bad, and it's something that is so hard to give.
When I found out I was having twins I was so happy, but a part of me was so sad.
Here I was about to have 2 babies (No fertility involved, just happened) and my little brother was trying so hard to have one.
I knew he would be happy for me, but I also knew that it would be bitter sweet for him.
My mom told me a story that nikki told her about Ethan and this is what I wanted to share.
Nikki & Ethan were shopping in Walmart one day when Ethan saw a lady with a baby in her cart.
He begged Nikki to go and ask her if she wanted her baby or if they could have it.
Nikki told dhim that she was sure that the mom wanted her baby but Ethan really wanted her to go ask her.
This breaks my heart, Brett & Nikki are both wonderful parents and Ethan is the most well behaved child I know.
They all want this so bad.
I was babysitting Ethan one day a couple months ago and he was playing with the boys, he looked at me with a little confusion in his eyes and asked my why I have 2 babies. (Kinda like why do you get 2 and I don't even get 1) It makes me really sad.
I know that they will get picked and that baby will be the luckiest baby in the whole world, it will never lack for love or anything else. I Just felt for some reason like I should share this with everyone.

I can't wait!!! December is so far away.
Ok I don't know how many of you out there have read the Twilight Series.
But I am TOTALLY obsessed....
I have never read 3 books faster in my life.
I can't wait until Breaking Dawn comes out (Aug 2nd)
Or the movie (Dec 12th)
The books drew me in so completely I couldn't believe it.
I need serious HELP.
Anyway for anyone else out
there going through withdrawals
Nora Roberts has a great Vampire Trilogy out I read it about a year ago
and I loved it. I'm a huge Nora Roberts fan though. You should check it out
it's not quite as good as Edward & Bella's Story though.
The Nora Roberts Vampire trilogy is calle the circle trilogy.
Book 1 is Morrigan's Cross
Book 2 is Dance of the God
Book 3 is Valley of silence

Ok in case you don't know me very well or haven't noticed, I'm obsessed with Quotes and Sayings.
Here is one from my myspace layout that I love (by the way I am on myspace also).
"Life is to short to wake up in
the morning with regrets, so love the
people who treat you right, forget about
the ones that don't, and believe that
Everything happens for a reason
if you get a chance take it,
if it changes your life let it!"
This saying means a lot to me I have been so blessed in my life and I know that if I hadn't been open for anything I would never have the wonderful life I have now.
I know from personal experience that God does answer your prayers, it may not be the answer that you want or ask for but it ALWAYS turns out better he knows what we need.
I'll post more Quotes etc. later but feel free to leave me any you may have that you love.

I can't believe how fast time flies.
courtnie is almost 16, Cody is almost 13,
and the boy's are almost a year already.
They just don't stay little long enough.
Courtnie has her driving permit and is in drivers ed.
Gage is walking and Kelton finally decided to crawl about
a month and a half ago.
Life is busy for us, but I wouldn't want it any other way.
It's great and we have been very blessed and are thankful
for all that we have and all we've been given.
