A Big Primary Guy

I always love Primary Programs in Sacrament Meeting, but having your own kid participate brings it to a whole other level. We never quite know how Sammy is going to react to new experiences, but he did not disappoint, it was hilarious. He was totally "that kid." He sang the songs way louder than everyone(there are only seven children in the primary so it wasn't too hard) sang loud gibberish if he didn't know the words (I think he got this from me)and kept humming after the song was over. He loudly whispered "I love you Mom", when he saw me in the back, and flashed multiple thumbs up and "I love yous" in sign language when we caught his eye. He had 2 speaking parts. The first was really sweet and the second was more of an experiment on how loud the microphone could get. After, everyone came up and commented on how he stole the show. It's always the naughty kids that get the credit:)

The Hirts Rock

Last night our student branch and the Family Ward had a combined trunk or treat. Since it was two weeks before actual Halloween we of course were not prepared. We tried to think of a costume that would cost no money and this is what we came up with. Rock on.

Gushing Alert!

So I've been trying not to gush about my husband as much because I think it might be getting a little annoying for people that hear it all the time, but today I JUST CANT HELP IT!!! It is Sam's 27th birthday and I want everyone to know..."I'm in love, I'm in love and I don't care who knows it." He is my partner in every sense of the word, my best friend. He makes me laugh so hard and makes me feel so loved. Just being around him is my favorite thing. He loves life. He is passionate about biology and the outdoors. He genuinely loves all the crazy that comes along with being a parent. His boys are over the moon about him. I feel so honored to be his for eternity.
