I haven't been writing much lately, but life is continuing along.

My cute sister is getting more and more pregnant. I can't wait for my little nephew to come in march.

My mom's side of the family all celebrated my grandparents' 50th wedding anniversary this past weekend. My Papa proposed to my Granny with the ring I now wear as my own wedding ring. Two cows were sold to pay for it in the 50's.

The cute couple

They didn't get to cut the cake at their own wedding, so my amazing aunt Cathy made a beautiful anniversary cake and they cut it in front of all of their posterity.

Happy with the family

My beautiful and sweet cousin married her best friend of 7 years on Saturday. It was the first temple sealing I'd seen since my own and it was just beautiful. There are no words for how it feels to have the promise of an eternal life with the person you love most in the world.

They got married in the Jordan River Temple so there were no steps to fit the family on for the picture... which our big family kind of needs.

I loved her hair!

My family at the temple. 3 of my cousins have come to live with my parents for awhile. They are so cute and fun to have around.

My Granny putting the finishing touches on her beautiful cake.

It turned out so cute and unique. Perfect for Lindsay and Jeff.

I loved these little birds on the top of the cake.

They had a little ring ceremony before the dinner and read a Shakespearean sonnet together.

I got to be a bridesmaid. The dress was cute but I ended up flashing some people during the dancing part of the night. Oops.
