New Family Pics

No quilts today.  Today I am getting a little more personal and talking  :)  This weekend we took a quick trip up to Salt Lake to see my side of the family.  My little sister was in town from WA, and it was the first time we have all been together in like 7 years!!!  So of course, we needed some family pictures ;)  Saturday morning we met at the park and my sister took pictures for 2 hours and did an amazing job!!!    This is my family :)   My parents, siblings, their spouses and children.   There are 32 of us all together and I can't begin to express how wonderful it was to get see them all!!!



These are my parents.  Aren't they just so cute!!!  I am so grateful to them and love getting to visit them.  My dad is always there for me and my mom is the first one I call with questions of life, big or small.   I love them!!!


And can you believe my sweetheart, Jacob and I are going on 20 years of Marriage.   We celebrate our 20th anniversary this year and words can not even begin to express how grateful I am to him and how much I love him. 


And how my family has grown!!!   When I first started this blog I only had 4 kids and they were all little.  In fact, I just barely realized the other day my profile still said, mom of 5 "little" kiddos.  I edited it realizing they are not my "little" kiddo's anymore.   We are just soaking up as much family time as we can as I know they will soon be leaving for adventures of their own.   Isn't family just the best!!!  I just love these amazing children of ours and am so proud of each one and the person they are becoming. 


What a blessing it was to have such a wonderful weekend spent with family.  It is always so wonderful to have the opportunity to reflect on how important family is and the love that we share!!!  

I hope you all have a very blessed day and are able to share it with the ones you love ;)

  12. Congratulations! We're still not allowed to gather in groups larger than 10, so it will be sometime before we can have an extended family gathering, but fortunately my little family numbers 8.
