Where has time gone?

Kailei turned 8 on October 20th and she was lucky to get baptized on Halloween. I don't think she will ever forget that. It was great to have all our family and our friends around for this special time in Kailei's life. All she wanted for her birthday was to get her ears pierced, so that is what she did. I thought for sure she would shed a tear, but she didn't cry at all. I was shocked....She looks so cute. It is hard to believe that it has been 8 years.
On another note, Presley is 3 and she seems to always be getting hurt. We were having family home evening and before we knew what had happened she had fallen off the wood bench at the table and it had dropped on her big toe. Needless to say she can't walk on it and it is all black and blue. We are going to xray it to see if it is broken, not that there is anything to do for a broken toe.
We are all enjoying life and the blessings that we have. Yes, we are having our share of trials right now, but I like to think about the positive things in my life because there isn't anything I can really do about the other things. It drives me crazy when people are always complaining about their situations, someone else always has it worse so be grateful for what you do have.


  1. Erin, your kiddos are so gorgeous! I love there olive colored skin. I can't believe how big they are all getting. I remember Presley when she was just an infant. Wow, time sure flies! Have a great holiday season. :)

  2. Congrats to Kailei! I know, where has the time gone?? That's so exciting. Jenaya turns 8 tomorrow, so it will be our turn next!
