Picking Up the Pieces

I have not blogged in a year! Yikes! I always check in with a few blogs I follow but always forget to visit my own! (How sad is that?) Maybe I should set a new goal... to blog once a week, maybe twice? Who knows...
My life in a year has changed ALOT!
1)My oldest daughter, Julia, graduated from high school last year and began attending Brigham Young University in June! That is Julia in the picture below as our whole family was watching her walk away and begin her new chapter of life. It was very emotional for Aaron and me.

2) My father passed away suddenly on May 18th from a heart attack.

3) Sophie Ann is now 13 months old. She is a beautiful little girl who adds so much "noise" to our family! (As if we didn't have enough before her!) We all love her to pieces!

4)We survived another Christmas...
I will add more later. Sophie is making her beautiful noise...


  1. more...more! It was lovely seeing your Lexie!

  2. I still can't believe that Julia is in college, that Dad died, that Sophie is a year old or that you have 7 kids!! Life is just flying by! Blog more! :)
