This video is so beatiful and reminds me of the importance of being the best person you can be and what you look like on the outside doesn't matter it is who you are on the inside. Ruben and I had a horrible accident a little over a year ago where I almost lost my whole family myself included. This video reminds me of what I tend to forget, I need to love life everyday especially after I was given a second chance. The Lord has given me this gift and I need to live it to the fullest and not dread on wordly things.

My Brother Christopher (Chris) Man he is getting big he is taller than me!!!!well that doesn't say much what am I like 5'1 hahaha Look at Ruben in the back of that one he wanted to be in it too.

Berganza family at toon town look at my brother he looks like he hates life hahaha

Its a small world after all............... Pretty and lit up for Christmas already and me and these cool clip on minnie ears I loved them!!!

Here we are in the one hour line for Space mountain they ran out of Fast Passes you know those papers you can get to cut in line at a different time they ran out by 3 in the afternoon so we had to wait in line so worth it though.

They really wanted to be part of the parade, They asked and they said sorry we ran out of costumes so they still had to put their two cents in.....

At pirates of the carribean my favorite ride and look at my dad trying to be funny and give Chris some ears hahaha.

Here's a little summary.........................This thanksgiving was a great one Ruben and I definitely had a blast. We enjoyed California and family and wish we can go to Florida next time its time for a Vacation. I miss Florida it is so beautiful and I miss the Family I have out there too but hopefully we will see them soon I graduate in December but I am walking with Ruben in April when he graduates almost done booyah!!!!!!!!! okay well here's the good stuff fun pics...Of course most of these pics are at DISNEYLAND!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I love this place my parents present to the family I love that place it is the happiest place on earth I love it and it was Ruben's first time to the one in CA love it can go there everyday if I could.


This is a great Mormon Message Video I found on the site It is especially great when you are feeling down and just don't know why and where the best place to turn....OUR SAVIOR Jesus Christ. I love how the atonement is not just about forgiveness for our sins but about helping us in times we just feel down and lost. Watch this you will not regret the 3 to 4 minutes to follow............................

What we have been up to since Ruben came home...........

This was Ruben's attempt to fly a kite I thought it was funny and also I told him there is no wind and obviously by the picture above it didn't work. He is such a little kid sometimes and then he had the great idea to have me drive and that he would put the kite out the window and fly it that way I did becuase I felt bad the other way didn't work. We laughed so hard becuase cars were behind us watching what we were doing I felt like a dork but ruben loved it.

We have gone to the mall a lot cuz I got gift cards for my birthday and me and Ruben decided to try the massage chairs they were actually quite comfy and relaxing.

The above pics are some of my birthday. I didn't want to do anything huge becuase I had a long day teaching but Ruben surprised me with a trip down to Idaho Falls and we ate Olive Garden and went shopping my favorite thing to do of course. Then he surprised me with a present and he got me a beautiful shirt, necklace and earrings he has really good taste when it comes to clothes. We had a yummy tres leches cake and he sang me happy birthday.

Here are some pics of the fair. We went to the eastern Idaho fair and it was a blast we ate everything possible my favorite were the scones. We also saw some baby cows and huge!!!! rabbits Ruben didn't know they had animals he was so surprised by all the different kinds. We had a blast at the fair so glad we went.

Future dream cars. I really want a new car bad and this is seriously my dream car it's a ford edge. I just need to get a teaching job here soon and this may become a reality. Ruben liked the ford explorer and said it would be a good temp car till he gets his escalade. HA HA we will see when that happens.

Here are some pics of us at Melaleuca baseball night. My work owns the stadium for the Idaho Falls Chukars and the whole company got free tickets to go watch a game so Ruben and I decided to go watch the game.

Here's just a pic of us excited to finally be back together in Idaho after a long summer apart.

My Trip to Kansas City..........

So here are some pictures of my trip to Kansas City it was so much fun but a sad story because I was there for a week and a half and my camera broke two days before coming back to Rexburg. Ruben bought me a new camera for our anniversary especially since the old one broke. Lame I lost all my pics. The place that says bowl was a nightclub that Ruben and I went to that had dancing and a bowling alley inside but it totally had bouncers like it was so not ghetto but totally cool with a bowling alley inside. Then we went to this power and light district where there was a live band playing outside. It was really nice but hot the weather was so humid. Some of the pics I lost were of Adam-Ondi Amon I think thats how you spell it and some Amish communities it was hilarious because Ruben didn't know what Amish people were and how they lived. We laughed at how he reacted to them. He wanted to take pics of them up close and I was like Ruben we are not at a zoo, they are real people haha. They made the most amazing cinnamon rolls, they were so yummy!!!! Well here are some pics enjoy!!
