The year two.thousand.and.eight.

I thought I would share a few memories and events of this past year for us.

Last year in September we found out we were pregnant. The both of us were very excited but also very nervous to become parents... immediately Tyson decided he wanted to name our son, Parks, however, It wasn't on my list of favorite names! My grandmother, Beth, died on November 24th, of 2007. Right before she passed away she called to tell me and my family that I would be having a boy. I was a little surprised and at the time just thought that my grandma was being a little loony... little did I know, she was right. When my family and I went to her burial, she was buried next to her dad, my great grandfather, Heber Park Brockbank. So, I went home and decided that "Park" and "Parks" were very similar, so I gave in. So, on May 16th, 2008 we welcomed our very first son, Parks Adam. The experience of having a child is indescribable... I'm so grateful to have been able to have had the opportunity to bear a child.

We blessed our son when he was just 3 weeks old because Tyson's brother was leaving on a mission to Chile and we wanted him to be able to stand in. The blessing talked about our son's life and him serving a mission and having a family one day. It was neat to know that my husband is worthy to be able to have the priesthood.

Tyson started working for Supreme Green just about that time and I worked up until we had our son.. and then I went back to work about 8 weeks after he was born. I do hair only one day a week and then work waiting tables about 3 to 4 nights a week.

Tyson also went back to school this last Fall. He is working on becoming a fireman. His ultimate goal is to one day work in Las Vegas! I'm a little nervous about it, but I also want to support him in his decisions.

Anyhow, this is just a little bit about us this past year... :D
