The reason for my existence

I have these two amazing little boys that are getting older and older with each passing days. It breaks my heart to see them growing up so fast knowing that one day I won't be able to cradle them both in my arms. It's important when "I'm to busy" to really stop and take a look at what is going all around me. This will not last forever and I have to learn to enjoy it while I can. It brings me back to one of my favorite quotes...

"If you are still in the process of raising children, be aware 

that the tiny fingerprints that show up on almost every newly

 cleaned surface, the toys scattered about the house, the piles 

and piles of laundry to be tackled will disappear all too soon 

and that you will—to your surprise—miss them profoundly" -

Thomas S Monson

Kyren, you will never really know how important your timing to come into my life was. Because of you I have been able to push forward and accomplish the unimaginable. Being a teen mom was not easy but I do not regret any second of it. You have showed me what love is all about. You are my little sunshine!

Brody, you have taught me that being silly is so much fun! You make me laugh with all that you do. Having you has been such a joy and I have been so lucky to be able to spend each and every second with you. 

I am also so lucky to have such an amazing husband. He supports me, makes me feel safe, loves me with all he has, and makes me feel beautiful. I know that I have been a little difficult to be around lately {with all my crazy pregnancy mood swings} and I love you for that. I am so lucky to have you be forever mine. You are such a sweetheart. Thank you for being you! 

 Find someone...
who'll never get tired
of kissing you everyday
who'll hug you when
you're jealous
who'll understandingly 
keep silent when you're
who'll squeeze your
hand when you're not 
in the mood
who'll plan and imagine
the future with you
and when you find that someone
never let go!

 This is Scarlett! 

We found out we were having a girl on Aug 5th and were in shock! After two boys it seemed that the odds were slim. I am super excited to be able to have some pink around the house and to make darling little bows! Knowing that I will have a little girl to dress up is so much fun! I can't wait. I have still been feeling great and have started working out again {running 2 miles a day} and gained 2 pounds so far. I finally have a baby bump {although I feel like it looks like I'm fat rather than pregnant} But non the less its there and we have started feeling her move which is very exciting! 

19 1/2 weeks along! 

We can't wait for her to be here!

Off to First Grade

Today Kyren started first grade! The summer ended very quickly but I know he was ready to start school. He's such a smart boy. I couldn't be more proud of him. I cannot believe how fast  he's growing up. It feels like not long ago I was rocking him to sleep in my arms.  Since starting kindergarten he's because such a great reader!  He really amazes everyone with his smartness. He holds a big future ahead of him!

This morning when Kyren woke up {at 7am} he yelled at the top of his lungs with excitement
 "SCHOOL!" He couldn't wait to be on his way.

We have started a breakfast tradition for the first day of school. This year we had some yummy donuts and pancakes. It was great having those that care and love Kyren help us send him off on his first day. Thank you all for coming.

The Book of Mormon Challenge

I know I am  a couple days late on posting this but I really want to challenge all my friends to do this with us! Life gets in the way sometimes and to be honest I am not the best example when it comes to reading my scriptures everyday. Well the primary kids in our ward were given a Book of Mormon challenge which I thought was GREAT! Here is the following this calendar below you will read the ENTIRE Book of Mormon in 92 days! 
I started on Aug 1 and it has been very easy and is putting my in the habit of picking up my scriptures daily. I urge all of you to try, we will all be blessed because of it =)

Tucson Say-Cation!

A couple weekends ago we went out to Tucson for a much needed stay-cation and to catch up with some of Zaak's family.  We had so much fun seeing everyone and relaxing at the resort. 

When we arrived at our hotel Brody and Kyren were so excited! Both boys love staying at nice places...I was pretty surprised that little Brody knows what nice things are. For example when we were walking down the hall way to go in our room Brody was looking all around saying "Oh nice!" It was the funniest cutest thing ever. We had a wonderful relaxing weekend. 

On the first day we hung out by the pool with the boys and relaxed in our room.

The second day the other Muros arrived and we went to a BBQ with the Acosta family. We stayed there all day talking and watching the rain later that night. 

The last day we all went to breakfast and hung out at the pool. It was tough leaving but hope to go back for another weekend visit soon! 

Here is everyone we met up with. Thank you guys for everything!!
