Family History Monday

*Last week I forgot to do my Family History question, so today I will do two!

What was the house you were raised in (apartment, farm, etc.) like? How many rooms? Bathrooms? Did you have eletricity? Indoor plumbing? Telephones?

I lived in two houses growing up. On on a ranch (now that Jeff, my twin brother lives in) and one in Greeley (Evans). On the ranch it was just a simple home, looking at it now it's small, but growing up it seemed big. There were four bedrooms. I shared one with Jenni and Jeff and Joe shared a room. We had one small bathroom, but once again it seemed big to me. The kitchen seemed huge because once I remembered I need to scrub the floor and it seemed like forever. Since we lived on the ranch we were outside a lot and played everywhere. It was fun. And since I was born in 1983, we did have indoor plumbing, electricity and telephones.

When I was in 5th grade....we moved to Evans. My parents and older sister Jenni and her family still live there. This house seemed huge since it was bigger and that it is a bi-level. There are 2 bedrooms upstairs and 3 downstairs. At first Jenni and I shared a room but we evenutally got our own. We turned the family room downstairs into 2 different rooms. This house had 2 bathrooms and a bigger kitchen than our other house. It also had a nice size yard in the back.

What was your proudest moment as a parent?

Well since my oldest is only 7 years old and my youngest is 2 years old, I don't have a lot of time to look back on. But my proudest moments are always happening. When I see Brandon and Nathan succeed at something we are working on. Before they had so much trouble in public and at home and had a lot of struggles, but now seeing them overcome them makes me very happy because I know how much they have worked on it as well as me. But I am so proud of my children whenever they do something good. When they help each other out or share or gives each other loves. It also makes me very happy and proud when they remember a scripture snb tory or remember what angel is on top of the temple. The fact that whenever we are in a room together, Nathan always says, "We are all together as a family, lets say a family prayer." I am proud of each of my boys and the small accomplishments they make each day and I love them very much. I also look forward to many more "proud" moments that will happen in the future.
