I really should be sleeping right now, but I just feel like I need to write down some of the thoughts that have occupied my head the last couples of weeks.

My sister Amber explained it perfectly:
"The main trial in our life has been the passing of my little nephew Kaden. He lived 9 days and touched many, many lives. This experience has made me stronger in my faith and more grateful for my crazy kids and all that I go through with them. I love my family and extended family so much more. (and I didn't think I could love them more than I already did!)"

I feel very blessed to have the Gospel, and to know the Plan of Salvation, and the powers of the Atonement.
I wanted to be there to comfort Sarah and help her through this trying time, but honestly she's been the one lifting me and being such an example of Christ-like love.
Heavenly Father has blessed me with an amazing family, yeah we have had our trials, but we are learning and growing and becoming closer.
Kaden has fulfilled his mission here on earth and I know he is in heaven, silently watching over us. I know he's still my Levi's little buddy, his very own guardian angel! I am so blessed to have my family and I know we will be together for all Eternity.

The night before Kaden passed away I read this quote:
A prophet once said about the loss of his child: "And there too are gathered to my Father’s mansion all my darling lovely ones; not in infantile helplessness, but in all the power and glory and majesty of sanctified spirits! Full of intelligence, of joy and grace, and truth.”
I don't know why, but it was so comforting and reassuring to read this. I know that there is life after this and my dear sister will get to raise her perfect son Kaden one day.

I gave myself a challenge and wanted to do a sketch for Sarah. I choose my favorite picture of him. His little face was so perfect, I was afraid I wouldn't be able to do the photo justice. It was a very peaceful experience and I was please with the way it turned out. I dare say it is one of my favorite pieces i've ever done. Thank you for your perfect example Kaden! We love you!

My new favorite clothing store: Plato's Closet

So last week I went into a store called Plato's Closet. It had shoes, pants, skirts, shirts, jackets and all kinds of jewelry, hats, belts, and purses. I didn't have my wallet and we were short on time so I left empty handed.
But today I took Jevan back there and we got all kinds of good deals. Our most expensive item was $14 and I think that was for the shorts. All the other items were $8 or less, most the shirts were $6. It is like a DI but nice quality items with brand names only. Here are some of the brands were got: Abercrombie, Old Navy, Hurley, American Eagle, Aeropostale, Maurices, Perry Ellis, Roxy, Mossimo, Carbon, and Charlotte Russe.
I'm sure most of you already knew about this place. I was just so excited that I don't have to go dig through crap at the DI anymore to find one or two cute things, now I can buy nice clothes here for cheap and they'll buy my clothes too. For those of you up in CV, Logan is getting one soon I hear. :)

Cub Scouts - da bears

Jevan and I have been called to be Cub Scout leaders over the Bears. We just had our Blue & Gold Banquet tonight (Feb. 25th). I was asked to pick a theme and decorate for it. I guess this dinner is a big deal, it is to celebrate the b-day of scouts. I chose to do a jungle theme and call it the "Baloo & Gold" banquet. I learned the cub scouting program was based off of the jungle book and some Native American things. So I watched the jungle book about 12 times this past week (not by my choice, Jade loves it and is constantly playing it) but it helped me get some ideas. I bought some jungle/animal theme decor and made a poster with their theme, oh and did a cake, and finally this is what they got: (sorry some of the pics are out of order)

Here is the cake, the boys made the little figurines and trees. They did pretty good! And it tasted pretty good, if I can say so myself! :)

I've been doing some drawing lately

When I was in high school I used to do a lot more art. I guess it was because I had an art class everyday (during school) for 3 years. I had that time set everyday to be creative. Now I have more important things to occupy my time; like my hubby and my 2 cute kiddos, and even some fun friends and a sister close by.
For Christmas this year Jevan and I decided not to buy each other presents, but somehow I knew he wouldn't stick to that. I had no idea what he was secretly getting me so I decided to do a drawing for him. I really never sketched much back in the day, it used to be mostly painting. But I thought I'd give it a try. So this is what he got for Christmas:
After my drawing for Jevan turned out, I thought I'd give something a bit harder a try and it turned out alright too. I think I will do one of Jade on her blessing day too. Maybe make it a thing I will do for my kids. (look at that handsome, happy boy! I just love him to pieces!)My mother in law saw my other sketches and ask me to draw the whole Weeks family for Merv's B-day. I had 20 days to draw 36 ish people. I gave it a try and after 3 people i said forget it. So then I decided to give a Merv and Clara Jean sketch a try. Much easier then 36 people. lol! She is giving this 11x17 sketch to him for his b-day now. I am pleased with the way it turned out. Here are some pics of the sketch in progress.

2 weeks old already

Our little Levi is already over 2 weeks old. He is 8.6 lbs now and 20 inches. So he's growing a little bit.
He spends more time awake now. Jade loves when he looks at her, she laughs and makes faces at him.

We all do a lot of this. I love snuggling with my little wookies. Nap time is great!

Introducing Baby Levi

I had my last Dr. appointment this past Thursday the 23rd. At my apt. my Dr. asked if I'd like to be induced later that day. I called Jevan (who was at home in West Point) and told him our options, thursday or monday to be induced or maybe going on my own over the weekend. My dr said he'd call when labor and delivery could take us.
The hospital called me at 2 pm and asked if i could be there by 2:30. I called Jevan who had just started his shift 5 minutes before, and asked him to leave and come up to logan so we could have this baby. I drove myself in and met my parents there so they could take Jade.
By 3 I had the paper work done and they were ready to get me going. By 3:30 I was all hooked up and started into labor. Jevan arrived shortly after. The Dr. came in and broke my water, a while later I got an epideral, and at 7 they called the Dr. He was there by 7:15 and I was allowed to start pushing, Levi Jevan was born at 7:37 pm. He weighed 7.5 lbs and was 19.5 inches long. He has lots of dark hair. We stayed in the hospital till friday night. I was relieved to get out. I was going crazy just sitting there. Honestly I hardly feel like i just had a baby. I know they tell you to take it easy after, but I went and hung out with some of my sisters that night and the next day went to a dinner before the RS broadcast. Then I went to dinner with my hubby and his brother. Don't worry I kept strangers at a distance from our new wookie.
We stayed at Jevan's parents house till Monday night, we had a Dr. check up for Levi on Monday. They had to check him for Jaundice again. His test came back great.
Jade loves our new baby, she is always asking to snuggle, kiss and hold him. I ask him what our baby's name is and she says "wahhaaa".
