Abby Janelle Combs

I have been thinking so much lately about my older sister. She is the most incredible woman, besides my own mother, that I know. She is beautiful, intelligent, funny, and most importantly, she is a mother herself. She was the most amazing pregnant lady and now she has her own daughter. I know that Olivea knows how great her mom is, even at a young age, because that is just how Abby is. Abby has a way of making everyone love her; she is so great with people and everyone is just drawn to her. She is so talented; she was a cheerleader in high school and in college. She is an amazing example to me of, "When life gives you lemons, you make lemonade!" Abby hasnt always had the easiest life, or the most enjoyable journey, but when I look back on her life, I am in awe of the woman she has become. She has made an incredible life for herself and her family.

The thing that I love most about Abby is her mothering talent! Ever since I can remember, she has had a special bond with children, especially babies. I have always been afraid of brand new babies, I like 5 years old. No diapers, no getting them dressed, no holding their neck so you dont hurt them. But Abby has an amazing talent and is the most extraordinary mother. Olivea is one lucky girl.

Here are a few picutres of Abby over the years....she is a hot mama!! I love you, Abby, more than I can put into words and I thank my Heavenly Father that you are my sister! And I love your baby!!!!
First of all, look how good she is at making babies!!

Mr and Mrs Devin Hansen

One of my best friends, Lauren, got married this weekend. It was such a beautiful day and I was honored that I was able to be involved in so much of it. They were married in the Salt Lake Temple. Her dress, hair, makeup, husband, and flowers all looked AMAZING! I am so happy for them! Here are few pictures of that wonderful day! I hope both of you are enjoying the BAHAMAS!

All the friends that came...we are missing a few girl friend though!


I was fixing her train and Bryan was taking pictures of my backside!

Bryan gives the best "Tender Kisses!!"

We both went to give the other person a "Tender Kiss" so WE almost was funny!

Me and the most amazing Bride ever!!

I love you Lauren and Devin Hansen, I hope you have a wonderful, happy life together!!

I am so lame I know!

Ever since I can remember, I have been obsessed with weddings. I love the dress, the RING, the colors, the Temple, the WHOLE DAY! My family thinks I am nuts, but I look at wedding videos on youtube and I look at dresses online. I love looking at rings. Here are a few ideas I have for m own wedding.....whenever that comes!!!!

I love this Dress...sorry its so small
I tried this dress on when I lived in St George and I LOVED IT!!!!

I want this ring! Again, sorry its so small.

I like the tall, elegant center pieces.

Green, Ivory, Gold Bouquet....those are the colors I have in mind.

I love this table, and the way the food is set up!

More rings that I love...this first one would not have a yellow diamond, it would be clear!

Olivea"s Blessing

Well Olivea was blessed on Sunday, November 15th, 2009 by her father. It was such a wonderful day. Garron gave a beautiful blessing and Olivea looked incredible. It was such a neat experience. I have been to a lot of blessings before but none that are this close to me. It was amazing! I loved the whole day. We were surrounded by lots of close friends and family. Again, it was just a beautiful day!

This Weekend

This weekend I just hung around. On Friday my best friends and I had a sleepover and it was the funniest night of my life thus far! I have never laughed so hard ever! I mean laughter to the point of no breathing, crying, and rolling on the floor. It was so nice to see all my girls...especially since one of them is getting married so soon, which means we wont be able to see her as much. I am so grateful for the girl friends I have. I know they would do anything for me and I would do anything for them! I love you Bry Bry, Ash, Lys Lys, Stace Face, and Mrs Hansen!

On Saturday I went home to watch the BYU game and to do my laundry! It was so fun, I love being home on Saturdays. (Since my parents own a waterpark and Saturdays are the busiest days, our Fall Saturdays are almost sacred. We love to be outside, enjoying the nice weather, go to the movies, and do yard work. Well we dont love yard work, but my dad says that doing yard work means the Waterpark is closed!) Anyway, on Saturday my family went to go see The Box. The movie with Cameron Diaz, it was awful1!! There was no real story line and it was just not what we expected. Diaz was not great, which made it worse.

That was my weekend, nothing too exciting but it was a great weekend!

This year I was struggling with a costume, I didnt know what I wanted to be. I always have an idea in my head and then when Halloween comes and I put on the costume, I feel so stupid. Although everyone is dressed up, I still hate it. I had gone through a Wonder Woman costume, a school-girl, and then a cowgirl. I ended up being that and I felt ok about it. It was fun!

My friends and I went to the UVU dance on Friday. That was an experience; although I go to UVU and I love it, I try and stay away from the UVU dances. They are always a little on the risky side and not really what I want to be around, but my roommate convinced me to go. Otherwise, I would had stayed at home all night, I am so lame lately! (Now that I have a real job and come home tired!) We went to the dance and it was fun, I saw a lot of people that I knew; we had a good time!

Then on Saturday my other friends and I went to a Haunted House and a dance party in Provo. The Haunted House was so fun...I LOVE being scared!! The dance party was fun as well!

So my little sister is probably the most beautiful girl I know. She is loved by so many and always has had a big group of friends. She is just so outgoing, funny, talented, caring, loving, and always concerned with those around her. She is at Utah State and she is doing so well; she loves it so much and is having a wonderful time! Every night she is doing something more fun and crazy than the night before. I wish I would have had the experience that she is having.

I thought I would blog about her because I have been thinking about her a lot lately. She was home this weekend and it was so great to see her!

So lately has been busy, and for real this time. I have been so busy with school and working and I havent updated this is forever! Not too much has been going on since I last posted, just school and now I am working for Western Wats, a market research team in Lindon. It's fun, I like it, its not hard work and I only work 2 days a week. I work with a lot of fun people and its a job, so I cant complain.
Also, my older sister had her baby on September 12, 2009 at 10:45 pm. She had a beautiful girl, Olivea Janelle Combs. She was 7 lbs, 14 oz. Abby went into the hospital at about 9:30 am and didnt fully dialate until about 6 pm, then she started pushing and pushed for 3 hours. Unfortunately, Olivea was "sunny-side up" and was a little twisted, so she wasnt going to come out any time soon. They brought out the "vacuum sucker" to see if that would help. But once again, it wasnt doing any good. So they told Abby that she would have to do a C-section. We were all sad but we knew that was best for the baby and the mother. The C-section went well, then Abby went to recover and Olivea went to the Nursery.
The next day Olivea was moved to the NICU because the vacuum had given her a major conehead. She also wasnt eating at all so they had her on an IV to feed her. She spent 5 days in the NICU before going home. She is home now and doing so well! We love her and cant imagine our lives without her!!

Happy Parents with cute Olivea!!

Baby Olivea with all her wires...:(
