I've been meaning to blog about this but never got around to it but I think now will be a good time since i'm logged and blogging dur...lol!! So last week Tues. me & Jayy flew out to Long Beach to take my Aunty Pou and it was so much fun...we stayed over night and flew back Weds morning. That whole trip we were like lil kids roaming the foreign streets on Pacific Ocean Ave. by our Hotel visiting random stores..even stopped at a hole in the wall bar to watch the BYU game yea...poor people were probably wondering what we were doing!! Anyhow when we flew back i came straight into work. When i got in my sup asked how i was doing and if i was excited cause "Baby Girl" was coming soon, and we got to talking about everything the changes and so on, and during the chit chat she told me to read this blog of another co-worker and when I read it to remember how blessed i am even when it gets to those sleepless nights or stinky diapers just to remember what a BLESSING she is going to be...so I pulled up the blog and started reading away.....BOY....if ONLY I had boxes and boxes of Kleenexes i would've buried myself in them!! Her name is Kendra and her blog is http://www.kendraandryanwebster.blogspot.com/. When we touched down in SLC we made up our minds to give our lil "Baby Girl" a nickname "Moomoo" from her Dad I love it, but after reading this blog and feeling just a bit of how great this women Kendra is and with the nickname(among plenty of other ones) she gave her beautiful daughter Mckenzie which was "Muffin". I ONLY HOPE & PRAY that I will be a mother like her...FULL of EVERYTHING always STRIVING to be the BEST the MOTHER that she could be for her daughter the 4months she was here. I hope our daughter is as PERFECT as Mckenzie and Im sure she will be.!! But since reading that blog and the timing of everything (which me & Jayy and Im sure as everybody lives by) "EVERYTHING HAPPENS FOR A REASON" so her nickname will be "MUFFIN" to help us remember how BLESSED we are to have her...and especially to remind us to EMBRACE the sleepless nights, the crying, the vomiting, the dirty diapers, the $$$ being spent on her, the exercise in packing & unpacking her bags, doctor appointments, teething time, potty training and of course that only for the first few months and years and then from there EMBRACE pretty much all that I probably put my parents through as a girl....now its my turn!! Thank you Crystal (my sup) for referring me to that blog and THANK you to the Webster family especially Kendra for being such a great example of EVERY KIND and a very special thanks to Baby Mckenzie "Muffin" you were to good for this world, and your little time here has changed so many peoples lives including mine and of course my daughter as she grows she will know why we decided to call her "Muffin" to be as special as you are!!

Back in 2001 his family was not members of our faith (LDS) but he made sure he did not miss my farewell. I still remember that day he had all his kids in vala tonga (tongan attire) sitting there listening to me. I remember him coming & giving me an envelope of money yet his family was struggling & I REMEMBER his loving words..."Alu tokanga ki he ngaue, ngaue ke lahi" thats all he said and kissed me...I cried & cried & cried my humble Uncle in his beat up van (at that time) with all his kids in there with him. Proud to say before i returned home from my mission in 2002 they were ALL baptized & HAPPY to report sealed as an eternal family a year later!!
Through out the years he has been right there for each of kids a long with his kids!! I can bet you if you met him in person yourself with in a second you would be able to feel of his LOVE!! A few months ago his leg was amputated (diabetes) and at the time the had told him his kidneys will go down hill from then, and as of Thursday (Nov 5th) it has failed. Right now there is nothing that can be done so he is at home with his family & a nurse that comes and checks on him daily.
I hope the best for him and i don't want him to go BUT I do know when the Lord calls its his time! I'm just grateful for my blessings in my life especially my family & especially this handsome man Uncle Saia we LOVE you & know what ever may come we have the TRUTH....FAMILIES ARE FOREVER!!

So what makes a girl like me fall in LOVE with a man like him? One word explains it all.....DIFFERENT!! He was DIFFERENT and boy was I about to see how DIFFERENT he was. From the first day i met up with him after years of loosing contact he PROVED himself of being DIFFERENT! For one its not often a girl from the Valley marries a guy from the Valley were like brothers & sisters it would just be odd, but we BROKE that up!! Not often you find a man like him show so much affection regardless of who's around he's called me "LOVE" since the 2nd day we became a little couple. It's to the point my lil nephews call me that cause Uncle Jayy calls "Tia" (Aunt in Spanish) that. He strives to better himself in ways that I know is not common for him to do. I'm grateful I was blessed to be his wife & the mother of his kids & more importantly for one day to make it legit & become his "ETERNAL" companion!! I love you my "KING LEONIDA$" JASON ALVIN NYDEGGER thank you for the past two years & 8 months & ETERNITY to GO!!

So last Friday we had dinner with my lil brother in law Paseni & his beautiful wifey Ita (Wolfgramn) now this wasn't just some "Friday nite dinner" there was much more to it. This cutie couple has been blessed with two adorable girls Kato & Fehi, and earlier this year they found out they were expecting yet another. When finding out the news we were sooooooo HAPPY for them, and just excited to add yet another to our family. We'll to make a short story even shorter & to get to the point...(because with later posts i'm sure i'll share more) They are giving us the BLESSING of adopting the most precious gift one can give....the BABY!! That's right folks...Mr. & Mrs. Nydegger are going to be PARENTS <-----HOLY MOLY. Now things can change from now to then ONLY because we've discussed with them if they are to have a lil baby boy that we would want them to keep him since they don't have a son. Ita is having the symptoms as she did with the other two girls, but she is due for an ultra sound to find out. These two are truly SPECIAL...during our dinner they had told me & Jayy that what ever they were going to have they wanted us to have. It's so hard to share everything that's going on ONLY because I can't put it down right....let me just say we are soooooooooooooo EXCITED more like beyond. I am soooooooo grateful for these two & the love and trust they have in me & Jayy but more importantly I know if it wasn't for our Father in Heaven & his unconditional LOVE to bless us with this. I know he hears & answers prayers and with out a DOUBT knows ones HEARTS desires...so get ready my dear friends & family for more updated info on the Baby!! Oh duh..she is due Dec. 29th yes...2010 BABY is our YEAR!!

I forgot ot mention that when Aunty Ruby brought over with my hala the "tu'uanga" she had the blanket wrapped in the most beautiful, fine fala (from her trip from Tonga). Now i've seen a lot of fala's but this one....sheesh I wanted to keep it myself lol...but really thats how beautiful it was. In this picture of the pall bearers they were standing on the side of it....I know with out a doubt my father in law was smiling from above!! Thanks again Aunty Ruby!!
So I've been meaning to blog about this but couldn't load the pictures for some reason, and then i forgot my log in for my blog. ( I know who does that?...me) So the pictures above were from my father in law's funeral @ his burial. With the death of my father in law & being married to the oldest i learned sooooo much, but I wanted to blog about one thing that STOOD out to me the whole time during the services. My APPRECIATION of my FAMILY. When the news came about Dad passing i recieved non-stop calls from my Mom's sisters my Aunty's what I was needing, what they could help with, where i could find certain things for the funeral. But one Aunty in particular was my Aunty Ruby...LOVE this WOMEN.
Friday 10/2/2009: Off @ 5p.m., got home Jayy was ready to go out to dinner w/ his lil brother Seni & wifey Ita. Made a stop to visit Dad at the cemetary where Mom was hanging out & off we went to dinner. KFC <---Jayy's fave. Now I'll have to post about this dinner...E X C I T I N G!!
Saturday 10/3/2009: Had to work @ AMEX got off at 4:30. But hooked up another computer by my desk & watched General Conference...LOVED IT!! Made it home just in time to get Jayy ready for Priesthood session. He was ready by 5:30 and off he went with Dad. I stayed home cleaned, laundry, and visited with my mom & sisters. Jayy came home & shared the messages from Priesthood...very good note taker, and did a good job with listening to all the speakers. His fave besides the Prophet who spoke about "ANGER" was Pres. Urchtdorf.
Sunday 10/4/2009: Watched General Conference ALL DAY & LOVE LOVE LOVED IT!! Ended the nite with a nice dinner, and chilled out nite just me & my Baby JaYy.
This past weekend was the best!! Despite the "gloomyness" the messages at Conference as usual hit HOME, and not just ONE talk stuck out ALL of them had messages that were needed for me starting from the Womens Conference the week before!! Funny cause the whole weekend as usual we get the phone calls or the texts or out of no where visits from Jayy's friends but each time he talked to them it amazed me to see how upfront my husband was with them on letting them know he was watching General Conference. Thankful for my mother in law & father in law in instilling and teaching him when he was a younger BECAUSE they DO REMEMBER!! Grateful for this GOSPEL!!

The morning of the 7th (Labor Day) we got up got ready & made our way back to Dad, and again the Care Center was filled with his brother's, nephews, nieces, grand-kids, kids we were every where. Getting there I was confronted with the head nurse & the status of Dad, and the schedule we were on. The time to remove the ventilator was now moved to 12pm due to the morfin, and other medication not yet putting him in a comfortable state. Boy...was that the quickest 2-3hours before we knew it..it was now 15mins to 12pm. Again the nurses checked Dad to see how he was taking the medication....then it was time to see if Mom was ready to take off the machine, and who she'd like to be in the room when this was done...now really how were we going to "pick" who was going to be in the room....sorry EVERYBODY will be there. At this point the nurses had advised us once the machine was off it could be 5-15minutes, a few hours, days of how long Dad could last, we really didn't know. We all understood but boy Dad was a "warrior" once that machine was off he stayed with us for about 5hrs. at about 5:20pm was when he took his last breath & that was it....it's hard to comprehend that Dad's gone, that I no longer have a living "father in law" that my kids will not be able to meet him here in this life, at our little family gatherings he won't be there, at the Holidays there's going to be an empty spot, that NOW Jayy has to take charge of our little immediate family. Dad was a GREAT man, I couldn't have asked for a better father in law then him. He sure did make sure I knew how much he LOVED me, he made me feel like a PRINCESS and now...his mission has ended here. I'm so grateful that I had the time to spend with him, to hear his counsels, to be a part of his life. Dad we will always carry you in our hearts & with no DOUBT we know your watching over us...grateful to a LOVING Father in Heaven who's made the PERFECT PLAN for us to be sealed for all time & eternity. No DOUBT Paseni Lahi was a "crip" and his legacy will live on with all of us that were touched by him!! Love you Dad!!
We made our way to the care center where she was with Dad to find her a bit confused. Come to find out Dad was not doing so well, since his surgery back in Nov. '08 when he suffered the stroke his body was slowly not being able to keep up with everything. We found out that his kidneys (both) were done with, our options were 1. Admit to the hospital, but that would mean "aggressive"treatment with no guarantee of anything or 2. keep him comfortable at the center and from there his vitals and so on will shut down. We talked with Mom and made sure she knew what the options were, and she decided to leave him at the center, she was NOT wanting anything else down to him, knowing he's suffered so much already. So we hung out with Mom & Dad for a few hours, talking about what may come and all the details and what not. But I don't think we realized "our time" is NOT the same "timing" as our Father in Heaven.
Returning home after visiting with Dad & Mom it was about 4:30p.m. or so we rested and started to plan our trip for that night to head out to NYC. About 8p.m. another phone call....only this time it was nothing but crying on the other end. Mom had made her decision to take Dad off his ventilator the next day (Monday Sept 7th Labor Day) @ 10a.m. the liquid was already built up in him, to the point it was causing pressure to his lungs, and with his heart in the condition that it was....it was NOT going to make it. Family came from every where, phone calls, questions, thoughts racing is this really happening....

So Jayy will be highly upset if he knows I posted anything to do with the "U" on my blog, BUT it's ok he'll get over it!! My sister in law Kelly got us tickets to the game tonight...that's my gift from her & my "skinny brother" and get this...we are all BYU fans...hmm...oh well it's FREE!! Ha...ha...I LOVE football, and heck I have a cousin Isi and my nephew "Smockee" that play at the U. Can't pass up some college ball, some good company (my sisters, nieces & sis in law), and some grub of course!! So JUST for TODAY GGGOOOOO UTES!!<---Dang hope Jayy doesn't read this..ha..ha...ha....
