Wedding #2

Just a couple weeks ago, we ventured back up to Utah for Britton's youngest brother, Carson, to get married! It was a quick trip, but was jam packed with lots of fun wedding stuff. AND the weather was absolutely gorgeous....it made us want to just stay there!!!

Anyways, so Carson and Kayla got married on August 23rd in the Bountiful temple. Their sealing was so beautiful, and I'm pretty sure there wasn't a dry eye in the entire room. Their sealer made it so personal for them (as it should be), and he was just great to listen to.

The Beautiful Newlyweds coming out of the temple..... Love this pic...


Before they came out all the cousins had a blast running around and playing together...

(Saige, Bella, Piper, & Braelyn)

Me and my cuddly baby girl (it was chilly, so we snuggled in her blanket!)...

Lovin' her Dad....

After the Temple, there was a yummy luncheon (in which we forgot to bring our camera to), and then it was off to relax a bit until the reception.

Carson and Kayla waiting for the reception to begin.... Braelyn and Piper...London and her cousin Brigham...The reception was in Britton's parents backyard. Their backyard is just so big and pretty, so it was perfect! They had a DJ and dancing, and they were so sweet and asked me to sing and play my guitar for them for their first dance (it was planned previously, NOT on the spot, FYI)! It was an honor for me to do, even though I thought I was gonna jump out of my skin from nervousness!!!!

Congratulations Carson and Kayla! We love you both and are so happy for you!

Braelyn's 3rd Birthday!

This BEAUTIFUL girl is now 3!!!

(this pic is a sneak peak from her 3 yr. photoshoot...thanks Teri)Braelyn's birthday was on September 5th, and was right at the tail end of all the craziness with London's sealing and blessing. It was actually perfect because then all of our family could be there to celebrate with us! We did the main celebration, presents and cake, the night before (on the 4th), and man oh man did she get spoiled rotton!!!! It was pretty riduculous! Like worse than Christmas riduculous!!! However she is starting to understand birthdays a little more now, so it was just SO fun to watch her open all her presents and get so excited about everything! Here is one of the many pics I have of her unwrapping some presents...

and being SO excited about it all....

Following presents we got down to business with her cake. This year she wanted a "Team Umizoomi" cake with Millie on it. It was so fun to make, and turned out pretty cute!

Her face looks kinda dazed as she stares at the lit candle! ha

Mmmmm...

One of the big presents we got her, was her first tricycle (which on a side note, she LOVES and rides all around the kitchen!)! We were blessed to have her sweet birth mother, Jessica, come for her party too, and she helped put the bike together :> ....

Her first ride...

BUT since Sunday wasn't "officially" her birthday, the next morning I made her a special pancake breakfast...

And we went to lunch! We let her choose where she wanted to eat, and she chose

"Chick-a-Lay"!



We just love our Braelyn girl SO, SO much and are so very blessed to have her in our family. She is so sassy, silly, and fun to be around! She is a great big sister, and I can't wait to see all the amazing things she does in her life!!! We LOVE you sweet Braelyn!!!!
