Yours, Mine, and Ours

I'm sure you are all aware of the wedding that took place in July. Well, combining the two families has really been a unique experience. The families seem to do well together and get along for the most part. Thanksgiving was an adventure because we had to turn the table so it was diagnol in the dining room to get enough seats for everyone. It was really quite neat! :) Thanks to Tia and Dad who got all of the food prepared with a little help from everyone else.

Engagement! :)

As I'm sure you have all heard by now, Jeffrey is officially engaged to Tia Lamb. I know there are those of you that expected Jordanne to be the next one married, but it's not her turn yet! :) The Saturday he proposed, us kids spent the day getting everything ready for him. We spray painted a huge 30 ft. sign that simply said, "Tia, will you marry me?" and continued preparations by getting apple and white grape juice, a folding table, a rug, and paper cups loaded into the Excursion. Tia was coming back from her daughter's senior trip that day, so as the bus rounded to corner, you couldn't help but see the huge Excursion with the boat behind it, and a sign taped across them both! All the kids were there to watch as the shock showed on Tia's face... Now that we got that cleaned up, we have the wedding itself to plan! The date is set for July 18 of this year.

As I sit here, thinking about what this wedding will mean, I realize many things will change. But, this is quite simply a new beginning for two families joined as one. Yes, there will have to be adjustments on both sides, but I think this will be for the improvement of both families. I will personally have to make some changes, as I will not be the youngest child anymore, and that in and of itself will be strange! :) But, as I said before, it is for the benefit of both families!

Wow, since it's been over 5 months since I last posted, I decided it was probably time to. With softball and school and just everything that has been going on, I just haven't found much time to write. Jordy's and my softball season just got over after playing hard against Snow Canyon. Overall it was a good season with lots of new friendships made.
Jordanne is finally done with Math 1010 at Dixie college and got 100% on her final! :) Great Job, Jordy! Senior Ball was a lot of fun for Jordanne. She couldn't have looked any prettier!Jordy also had her Seminary Graduation Last night.
We are all staying busy, especially with this Thursday being graduation day for all the high school's down here. We are also very excited to be able to break out the boat and are heading down to Lake Mead this Friday to celebrate Jordanne's going on to college. Or maybe it's just so we can get out on the lake. ;)
