It's a little update...

So, my big excuse has been that I don't have anything to blog, just the same old everyday stuff happening around here. I definitely have some great things to blog, and am finally getting some time to do it. I don't know where the years have gone, but my baby just turned 8. She's been so anxious the last year, excited to turn 8 so she could be baptized. Finally the day came. I really didn't expect to be as emotional as I was. I basically couldn't look at her sitting there next to her handsome dad, both dressed in white, while they were speaking at the beginning without totally tearing up. Even sitting here typing about it gets me a little emotional. I am so grateful that she's this incredible little girl. She's been so amazing. She made the goal to memorize all the articles of faith before her birthday, and she worked hard on it and did it. She a wonderful big sister. Here's a few pictures from the big day...






And last but not least, one with her good friend, Madison. She gets to get baptized next month, I know Meghan is excited to be able to go see her baptism.

The kids are off track right now too. As much as I HATE having the kids in school in the middle of the summer, it is nice to be able to have them off now when the weather is nice and they can be outside. Except it got COLD this week. I've been loving it though. MUCH better than the triple digits we got out of not that long ago. I'm getting excited for the holidays. We are going to Disneyland for a few days next weekend. Then Halloween will be the weekend after that, then the holidays are just around the corner. I love this part of the year. Most definitely my favorite!!

I was so glad to be able to go to Meghan's baptism as well. It was such a reality check at the same time though. I can't believe that we are really that old. I expected the older kids' major life achievements, but Roger gave them a bit of a head start. Meghan was just a year old when I came home from the mission. It doesn't seem possible for her to be that old yet. It was still a wonderful weekend, and I am so glad we were able to spend some time down there.

Ben and I started dating right before Meghan was born and now she's 8 and we have three kids! Where does the time go? Oh and who did her hair? It looked so cute except I wish there was a picture of the back ;). It was a great day and I'm glad you finally blogged again.

Isn't she beautiful! She's such a sweet little girl. I feel old too, but that's because my fourth grandchild just got baptized. It seems like she was just born yesterday. I'm so proud of her for memorizing the articles of faith. Setting goals and meeting them brings happy feelings into our lives. But it's still very hard. What's her new goal?

Wow, I can't believe she's old enough to be baptized. I am just glad that I am not getting any older like the rest of you!! Congrats Meghan!!!
