It FINALLY happened


Today our family dropped Kenny "Elder Richmond" off at the MTC. It was the craziest thing ever. It almost feels like it does at the SL Temple. They push you through like cattle. They actually have you go to the Chapel in the Lavell Edwards Stadium. You don't actually go to the MTC. It's just like everyone says it is. They say a closing prayer and then that's it. You go one way and they go the other. It was so hard to say goodbye to him. I know that it is a happy time and that the people of Dallas, TX need him but it's bitter-sweet. My children will be so old when he gets back. He looked so handsome. I've been an emotional wreck this last week and now I can finally stop crying. He'll be an awesome missionary.

Whitney's Wedding





Saturday Whitney and Camron FINALLY got married. I think that it was the craziest day of my life and it wasn't even my wedding. The little boys wore suits with ties. It was so dang cute. Here are some of the pictures that I took.

Mom and Dad's new house

The kids looking out the front window at Mommy
Dad feeding Hadlee Pop Rocks in her new favorite place, the kitchen sink
Tyden looking for Reindeer (Deer, they are all over the place. I almost hit one coming down at night.)

Well, Mom and Dad finally did it. They made the move to Salt Lake City. Technically, Draer but what's the difference. They bought a home in Suncrest on top of South Mountain. From their balcony you get a AWESOME view of Utah County and the Mt. Timpanogas Temple. The last few days I have been going up there to help Mom unpack and get organized. Here are some pictures that I've been taking.

A SunBEAM


It's official. My little boy is a Sunbeam. It's weird to think about. I remember my first Sunbeam teacher and it makes me wonder if the boy will remember too. I wanted him to look really cute and I also wanted him to get use to the suit. He has to wear it on Saturday for Whitney's wedding and I didn't want him throwing a fit then. At least we know now that he will wear it. They both look cute.

Wierd Sleeping











Lately when Justin and I have been checking on Hadlee in the morning she has been in the wierdest positions. I have found her at least 5 times sleeping hunched over and today on her nap she was sleeping on her side with her feet almost to her head. She is the weirdest. It's kinda cute though.





So last night Mikelle, Kari and I went to the Bridal shower that Cam's family was throwing for Whitney. They were all talking about this "family" tradition that they had about kissing the bows off her head. Whatever. Cam's aunt brought down this night gown for Whitney. As she opened her gifts they would stuff her night gown with the paper and tissue paper. I guess that it is suppose to give Camron a glance into the future as to what she will look like when she is 9 months pregnant. It was hilarious. I just had to post these.

He's so DANG cute!!


video


I couldn't help but post this. Lately Tyden has been really singing. He always sings along to his TV shows, i.e. Blues Clues, Backyardigans, JoJo's Circus, Mickey Mouse Clubhouse. I caught a peek of him last week in Primary singing "Popcorn Popping." On Mikelle's birthday he sang too. I got it on video this time. Maybe he will grow up and become the next Justin Timberlake (without the dirty stuff.)
