Welcome Spring

We went to the Sri Sri Radha Krishna Temple Saturday to celebrate Holi Fest, the festival of colors. It is to celebrate the colors of spring and to welcome it in. When you throw your color, it is like throwing your worries to the wind. Though we don't practice the religion, they invited everyone all over to join them in their celebration. It was a lot of fun. Michael is the best! My Sister Breclyn came with us and it was so much fun. She brought her camera so between our cell phones and that, we went a little picture crazy. I hope that Spring will start to show more sun now. I want it warm already! Hope everyone else had a good weekend. Enjoy the pictures! :)

Breclyn: "Michael, you look like you are as tall as the mountains from here! And Bryttan, you look like you are as tall as the fence!"
Me: "Haha! Whatever, I'm taller than that fence"
Breclyn: "I don't know...."
Michael: "I don't think so..."
Me (running ALL the way over and standing against it) "Am I taller?!..... hmm, Well that's something.. I'm as tall as the fence!" :)

Making a Sugar Glider Cage

So I've had an Insane make a Sugar Glider cage out of PVC and Plastic Fencing.

I drew it out on paper and figured in my head all the pieces I would need.

A few days later, Bryttan and I went to home depot to get the stuff.

110 FT of PVC Piping
56 Little connector things
100 FT of Plastic Netting
200 Cable Ties

This is what we have so far...

As you can see, this thing is Massive!

And it is so fun to make :) I love Bryttan for helping me with it, she has been so great, her ideas were perfect and she helped with everything, from gluing, to putting it together, planning, and putting cable ties all over the place :)

And I got to use the wonderfully smelling blue glue stuff :)
It is still coming along, it will be finished tomorrow, I need to buy plexi-glass to make the doors. :)

So grateful

I was reading a blog that I accidentally tumbled upon and the women writing is a Mother of four kids. She was writing about how she wishes she could remember the simple happy things from before. How her husband helped her through her three pregnancies (she has one set of twins) and what a wonderful person he is. A wonderful friend and a great father. I decided I need to write more. About Michael, and what a wonderful Man he is and how grateful I am. I try hard to put into words and express my gratitude to him, but I can’t seem to show him and make him believe just how thankful I am to have him. This Lady who was writing the post was saying how she and her husband when together, are a song. I feel as though Michael and I are just that. Like notes being written down on paper to be played out making a beautiful song. We have the left hand and right hand working together creating a wonderful piece with just the right amount of Allegro and Pianissimo.. I‘m pretty sure that isn't the right word.. Maybe Pianissimo and Forte. Well, you see what I am trying to say. We both have enough opposites that we even each other out and make the most wonderful song. When we argue or have our disagreements (which is never often) we are both slipping away, playing our own song, yet making a beautiful duet. Because, even then, we are one. One song written to be played together by two people. And when we come together the music rises and is beautiful. We have so much fun together, I am so lucky to have him. Heavenly Father has a plan for us and has created this beautiful world and I am so thankful to be a part of it with Michael standing beside me. As we prepare to go through the Temple, our testimonies have been tested and strengthened. A little while ago I had lost myself, like I was drifting out into deep water and Michael was my wave that pushed me back to land, allowing me to feel the wet sand on my feet reminding me of the goal we are trying to get to. The house of the Lord. He has a very strong testimony and when you are with him, the Spirit is so strong. It’s hard to believe he is going to be my husband. I don’t know what I have done to deserve him, but I am eternally grateful. I have been blessed. I have been  given the gift to be in love, And how wonderful it is. I think to myself though, what does it mean, love? Love is any of a number of emotions related to a sense of strong affection and attachment. Love usually refers to a deep, innefable feeling of tenderly caring for another person. How amazing. It is a great feeling to have towards another person. It brings happiness beyond words. The many things you can do in life and you are lucky enough to have someone beside you, doing them along with you. Those many steps in life bringing you closer to our Fathers Kingdom. Love. That is one of them. How thankful I am to have Michael. My wave that keeps me from sinking, that carries me and puts me safely back on stable ground. I have a gratitude tree. Things in my life right now, that I am grateful for. Michael is the highest leaf on that tree. After that I would have to say my parents. I love them so much and without them and there Love, I would not have any of this. I would not have my testimony. I would not have happiness. I would not have the bright smile that I love to wear. And most importantly, without them, I would not have Michael. For with out them I would not have anything that makes me who I am. And, with out their love, I would not know how to. My life is happy, and I know I will always love Michael. I know that this happiness will stay, forever and ever. Michael and I will have a happy life together. He is my everything. He is the sunshine that makes my tree grow, and I love him. I am so grateful to have him.

(Michael made this picture for me. See? he's so great!)
Can I just say that I am marrying the most wonderful guy: ) Michael is everything to me. He works so hard all the time to make money so that we can live a happy comfortable life together and still always finds time to make me smile. He does so much for me, and puts up with my constant talk of wedding, homes, and all the crazy jibber jabber that is going through my head. His family is amazing too, they are so fun and already have made me feel like part of the family. I’m so excited to be a Kramer, I couldn’t ask for a better family to be a part of. I think they are finally starting to understand my Everett ways though. The wedding plans have changed so much, I think they are all about ready to kick me in the shins. I’m sorry everyone! As soon as I figure things out, I’ll let you know, I promise! I’m a very indecisive person, it’s a terrible characteristic to have. Michael and I have been planning like crazy. Calling every reception center, scheduling and canceling and rescheduling over and over again at the temple, saving every coupon that the mail lady brings, counting money, and wearing out the Google search bar for somewhere to live. There is so much that goes into planning a wedding. I don’t know what I would do with out my family. My Mom has been so wonderful and my Dad always listens when I call and need to talk. With everything that is going on though, Michael and I still have so much fun together : ) He makes me so happy and I cannot wait to be sealed to him forever. He is such a wonderful person and I know that he is going to be a wonderful husband. I am so happy to think of all the fun memories we will make together. Sometimes I find myself feeling so overwhelmed with happiness it makes my cheeks hurt : ) I haven’t posted in a long time and now that I do, I write a gigantic post. Sorry!
