As you can tell I have neglected the blog this past few months. Life has been very busy with church callings, preschool, and just busy in general. We have enjoyed spending time together as a family and Steve and I both had the opportunity to spend time traveling with our dads. I went on a Mediterranean Cruise and toured Greece, Italy, Turkey, and Egypt. Steve went to Mexico and Guatamala and toured the Book of Mormon sites down there. I will post pictures soon.
We wish everyone a Happy New Year and hope all is well with everyone. We are lucky to have everyone close and are going to relish the next few months as Daniel finishes school. We don't know where jobs will take them but a mom could only hope that they stay close. We enjoy Brooklyn every day as they have been living with us for the past few months as they try to save and find a home close by. We are truly blessed and are grateful for family!

We went to Florida the middle of August. We took Devin, Shauna, and Daniel. We spent 7 days having a "Magical" time in the Wonderful World of Disney. It was fun to spend time with the kids. Shauna and I went to a Cirque de Sole' show while the boys had fun at Disney Quest. We also enjoyed all the theme parks and the water parks. It was a great change of pace and we enjoyed spending time together.

Brooklyn is doing so well. Today they took her off the CPAP machine. She is not on any medications or any machines any more. Krista and Chris got to hold her today and they also got to give her a bath. We are so excited! We are hoping Krista will get to feed her tomorrow. It is only a matter of time now. It is so fun being a grandma. I got to change a diaper today. I am so lucky Krista and Chris let me spend so much time with them. Thanks for all the prayers and phone calls of concern!

Today was a great day for Brooklyn. They were able to take her off the ventilator today. They put her on a CPAP machine which is a step in the right direction. They are weining her off her medication and she is doing well. She is stable and holding her own. We got to spend more time with her today and they are also feeding her some of Krista's milk. She even gained an ounce since she was born. Krista got to change her diaper today and we are hoping we can hold her soon. Thanks to everyone for all your prayers.
July 31st Krista and Chris had our sweet Brooklyn. Brooklyn weighed 7 lbs. 13 oz. and is 20 inches long. She is a cutie and is such a fighter. She has had a few problems and is in the NICU at Utah Valley. She has what they are calling right now Meconium Aspiration. Essentially that is that she had a bowel movement in the womb and then swallowed or gasped some of it into her lungs when she was born. She is progressing slowly but will have to be in the hospital for a little while. The have her on a ventilator and are keeping her sedated. They are trying to get all of the meconium out of her lungs and keep her stable. Krista and Chris are doing well but are both really tired. Krista did great in the delivery and is so strong. EVERYONE please remember our baby in your prayers.
We are still very emotional so if you need to call please call me, not Krista!

We had a family reunion for everyone, all my siblings and their families. Jimmy and his family wasn't able to make it. We camped one night, we went on the Skytram at Snowbird, the Dinosaur Museum at Thanksgiving Point, the Aquarium, the Zoo, the Planetarium. It was a busy, fun filled, packed three days.

We are very proud of Devin. He graduated from Lehi High School on Friday, May 29th at the Marriot Center on BYU campus. He is a great kid and we are excited that he plans to attend BYU in the fall. He will be living in Helaman Halls and so we will be Empty Nesters. We are getting a taste of that this week as he is in California having fun with his friends and celebrating graduating.
