It's not like I have had nothing to blog about...

Wow we have been busy, but we like it that way. We have seen lots of family in the last week. It has been so nice to catch up with so many people!

Sunday was baby Jake's blessing. It was the day of the snow storm. It was beautiful in a way, even though I was not ready for the wet weather. I had to rummage through Kaylee's old clothes boxes to find some tights for Brenna! Jake looked so handsome. Darin gave Jake such an amazing blessing. The luncheon was at Darin's parents house afterward.

So precious.

Cute family!

Kaylee and Breanne

We were so glad Angela could make it!

Like Father, like son!

On Wednesday, October 15th, it was Kaylee's 3rd birthday. I let her choose what she ate for breakfast, and she chose CEREAL of all things! She opened a couple of presents, then we got some pizza!

She got a new dress, more princess attire, and hair extensions.

And of course she wore her 'Alice' shoes

Here is the cake that I so craftily decorated (not as good as yours, Breann!)

And to finish up the day, we had Mark, Cindy, Cami, Darin, Allison, Jake, Craig, Sharelle, and Gavin over for cake and ice cream...and of course more presents.

She got this ROCKIN' tent from Grandma and Grandpa Bringhurst! Can you tell she loved it?

Cindy and Brenna

Saturday was Nate's Grandpa Frank Bringhurst's funeral.
It was an awesome opportunity to celebrate his life and see his family from all over the country. I took more pictures, but these are some of my favorites from the luncheon.

Uncle Ron and Aunt Patty from Arizona

Ryan (Nate's brother) and Tierney (Nate's cousin)

This is a great picture of Grandpa Frank. He loved to golf!

Cami (Nate's sister) and Jessica (Cousin)

Justin (Cousin) and Jenny

Cute little Hallie. Her and Kaylee were buds the whole weekend!

Lindsay, Justine, Breanna, Daren, and Nate in the background (you can't tell, but Nate is making a really nerdy face. )

After the luncheon, we went to a park so the boys could get rowdy. Pictured from left to right: Shane, Jeff, Ryan, Ron, Justin, Nate, Jordan

Brenna loved resting in the shade.

Whew! Did you get all that? There is more I want to post (can you believe that?) so stay tuned!

Wow, busy week! What a fun birthday for Kaylee, you are such a great mom! Looks like she had a perfect day. She is such a princess! Kaylee and Brenna are just the most beautiful girls (I know I write that all the time, but it is the truth). Jakob has changed so much in just a few weeks, he is adorable! What a handsome little guy. I am sorry about Nate's grandpa, that is always hard. Always nice to be with family at times like that.

Hello Sarah, thanks for you comment on the "Sisters Blog". I wish we would do more there, but that is how it goes sometimes I guess.

As far as talking with you mom, I haven't talked to her in about 2 1/2 years ago, the last time was about the time Allison was engaged, and then broke it off. I remember Abbie being a baby at the time, and I have really battled PPD this time around so I let the communication drop off. I did write 2 or 3 letters, I think. (I hope I did.) The last I heard was from a former co-worker of your mother that they were moving to Nevada, so I sent an email to you mom "begging" for details. This was right as they were moving and she wrote a quick note back telling me she would write with more details later, I haven't heard a thing since.
I have always thought of your mom as one of my best friends even if we didn't talk much. Let her know I say hello.

Your family is so beautiful!

You can do anything. I am so glad that prayers were answered, and your health was preserved. I admire your strong faith, the valiant way in which you live your life, and the great example you are to all around you. We love you so much and are so grateful for our eternal connection.
