I'm Back

It feels like ages since I have posted. My life has been very busy and full of special events. First Natalie was safely delivered to the MTC. It was a difficult thing saying goodbye to her. She has been with us since June and we have had such great time together. She was very emotional (goodbyes have always been hard for Nat)and would stop every so often that morning and wipe away a few tears. We have since heard from her and she is doing fabulous. She said that as soon as she couldn't see us she felt better. I am trying to post info and letters on her blog. If you are interested check it out. If this link doesn't work on your server I also have her blog listed in the right side column under check it out.

We also safely delivered Katey to BYUI. Here she is unpacking. Please note the feet on the end of her bed. I guess someone was tired from the eternal drive to Rexburg. She seems to be doing great. We don't hear from her much. I guess her social life must be great.

While we were in Rexburg we also got to spend time with Sean. He did a Dirt Bike Race on Saturday. He won a tropy and some really gruesome blisters. It was great to be with him on his turf. He showed us his apartment ( I'm so sorry Sean) and took us to a great pizza place. We got to sneak a peek at the ring he bought for Stacey. He proposed after we left town. We are excited for him and Stacey. She is a fun, positive, and a beautiful woman, who seems to love our Sean like crazy. We can't wait for her to become a part of our family on December 21st in Salt Lake City.

Finally, We have our Danielle all alone at home with Mom and Dad. She is taking it well. She quickly arranged the bathroom with all of her stuff and got rid of everyone else's stuff. She is a great girl and fun to be around. Hopefully Mom and Dad aren't too boring for her.

I feel very grateful for all the great moments I have had with my kids the last month. It is hard to be away from them, but at the same time I am excited for them and all the wonderful adventures that lay before them.

your family has been so busy lately with so many life changing experiences. i pray you hold up ok.

you've got the best family ever!

natalie is destined to be a great missionary. she has always had a knack for teaching, and now she has the best classroom ever in argentina!

sean is adding a great new addition to your family marrying stacey. she seems like such a wonderful girl. and hey, you might get some redheaded grandkids out of the deal some day!

katey sound like she is having the time of her life. i don't think the snow will slow her down one bit. anyone that meets katey is bound to fall in love with her. she is a cutie in more ways than one!

and, danielle is probably so happy to have a little elbow room and her parents all to herself. being born the youngest, you rarely get time alone with your parents. hopefully, she appreciates and enjoys it!

take care.
