Dress for Jordyn!

My sister-in-law, Lacey, is such a little seamstress! She amazes me! I wish I had the talent that she does. She made a dress like this for her daughter Gracie and I had to have one for Jordyn. So we went to walmart and picked out the fabric and she took it home and made it for me. I love it. It makes me want to learn to sew knowing I can make cute things like this! Thanks so much Lacey!!! You are totally awesome!

Long overdue

One of the main reasons, besides seeing family, that I wanted to go to Mesquite was to see the marker that my extended family made for my mom. She died 15 years ago and I still haven't been to the spot where she died to see the marker that they made for her. It was a hard thing to do. When I got there and looked around I could just picture in my head what happened. I could see it in my mind so clearly that it was super hard. I am so glad that I went though. I am so glad that I have the memories that I have of her, and that I know that she is watching over me and I will see her again someday. Its what gets me through some days.

The marker. It says her name, her birthday and her death day

What was also amazing is that there were actually two other markers there to mark two other people that had died at that same location.

Catch up!!

I have not posted in a while!! That is so not like me :) I have been busy with family and just to lazy to do anything I guess. So here comes a couple of posts for the time lost!! Me and my sister went to Mesquite to visit some family we haven't seen in like 15 years!! It was soooooooooooooo much fun. It didn't even seem like time had passed at all. We stayed with my Aunt Lori the first night and went to a fall festival and saw her daughter, Alicia(?sp) sing. That night we went to my cousin Leslies house and we went to a casino and hung out and danced the night away, needless to say the next morning was not so fun for some of us!! It was an awesome trip and we need to make it a yearly thing. Andy was unable to come because he had to work, so next trip he needs to be there for sure!!

2 weeks ago we went up to spend the last night camping with my sister, her husband, my dad and some friends while they were hunting. It was a blast. I love camping, so I am going to go at any opportunity. Ryan actually spent the whole week with them, and had fun learning how to shoot and riding 4 wheelers. Here are some pictures from the time we got to spend there.
