October Eighteenth

“Sigh. I didn’t know it was possible for three weeks to go even faster than the two weeks Grammie and Pops were here {and here and here} in May. But somehow they managed to blur by. I love this last picture and how their arms make a perfect rainbow. I love that these kids spent three weeks playing, giggling and fighting like normal. I love that I had my mom and sis-in-law and we were just girlfriends again. Being left behind has got to be one of the hardest parts of missionary life but I wouldn’t trade these precious visits for anything.”

“Sleep hasn’t been the best lately, I decided that I’m going to start getting up when I can’t go back to sleep…this was the 5th massive bug I found between 3:00am and 6:45am. If you know me, you know I absolutely detest bugs. I think the big bugs come out at night, how gross is that?!”

“Took these ragamuffins to the zoo today and ended with Andy’s Pizza and a play place. Now do you understand why we fall into bed completely exhausted every night?!”

“Set up a little studio in my house today and finally got some pictures of these two beauties. I love this picture so much, especially Rey-Rey’s little lips.”

“Grammie, Spencer and Emma are here. We are all alive {I think} although somewhat sleep deprived. Okay really sleep deprived! Pops had to stay home to ‘make the monies’ this time but he still sent very special gifts for his girls!”

Um…where is Sarah’s picture?

Weeeellllllll.

Let’s just say Sarah was traveling this weekend (NorCal for Easter) and her phone decided to have a little swim in a mug of coffee. {Details are still a little fuzzy.} Now she is currently making the NorCal to SoCal drive and isn’t able to upload her picture before midnight. Don’t worry. She took a picture and it will be arriving within the next twenty-four hours, promise!

{edit: my phone went wading, not swimming…just enough to kill the screen backlight, so the phone worked fine I just couldn’t see a thing! It’s all straightened out today and I have a new phone, I’m alive and back down South and here is my picture!}

“This little lady’s 3rd birthday is next week, check out that attitude!”
