Happy Birthday my sweet sister Melanie

This is my Melanie AKA MEL MEL, MOMO, MEL, M, Little, little sister, sis sister, saster, seessstteerrr, best friend.

Today she is 26 years old. Dang she is getting old. She told me today she is officially in her late 20's lol.

She is my best friend (besides the twin). I love this girl so dearly. She has been a rock and supporter to me throughout the many trials I have had in my life. She is a wonderful person to talk to and a great listener and advice given, even when it’s not ask for (but that’s why I love her).

It's hard not having family in the same state but i love that she is only a phone call away. I get to email her all day long and text her and call her on her way home from work hoping she doesn’t fall of her bike talking to me.

She takes amazing photographs. She loves the outdoors, a very family oriented girl, she has an amazing knowledge of the gospel and can speak with such clear insight about the gospel, very spiritual, outgoing, creative, unique(in every way, especially her dress) and doesn’t care what others think about her or how she dresses granted i am unsure if she matches sometimes but hey i love her style and she is my sis.

 (she breaks into places to take her famous pictures)

 (we love mom's guacamole)

 yes she is def shorter than us all

18 weeks and ITS A BOY!!!!

So much to catch up on.. Braden and I went to the San Diego Temple feb 26th and became an Eternal family. We were so grateful to have all our family and friends there with us.. My mom and little sister were there, Papa and Momma Sarai, Loni, Blaine, Straton, Jessica, Karson, Riah, Aunt AnnMarie and her family, Auntie CArrie and her family, Cousin Rissa and her Hubby Cameron, The Zepedas, Grandma Beverly, my friend Sara, The McGees, Bowmans, Kelcie and Taylor. It was predicted to rain the whole weekend and not let up, we felt very blessed when we arrived to the temple shortly after it stopped raining and we had blue skies. My sweet little sister was so patient with us and took some beautiful pictures here a a couple for now until i get the rest, And YES I FIT IN MY DRESS, it may have a taken a couple people to zip it up but the point is in was in it and the baby wasnt squished. :) It will be a day to remember for always. It has been my dream since I joined the church to be sealed in the San Diego Temple and it came true. I have such a strong testimony of temples and eternal families. On March 2 2002 I was sealed to my family in the LA Temple, on Aug 8 2009 Miss Evelyn became part of an Eternal Family as I held her in the Mesa Temple, what a joyous day and now Braden and I have become an Eternal Fmaily. I have such a love and growing testimony of the Gospel and the Temple

Today we found out we will be welcoming our first lttle boy. We both wanted a boy and I can't wait to get started on the nursery and buying clothes.
