I'm Still Here!

Oh my goodness - where has this month flown by?

We were so excited this past week to welcome home Dan's sister from her LDS mission to Spokane, Washington. She got to serve in Farm Chick's country - LUCKY! Dan was working from home that day so we took Lauren with us to meet the family and welcome Sarah home!
 There she is!
The nieces and nephews running to give Sarah a hug

 Seeing mom and dad and her sisters Jaylene and Sheree for the first time in 18 months! 
The airport group.  
We love Sarah.  She is just such a happy girl and always is first to greet you with a big hug and smile.  We have for sure missed her presence at family gatherings the past year and a half and we are thrilled to have her home!
Around our house we celebrated a little...

And Lauren has been my number one helper who wants to make cookies almost every day now!
 Waiting for me to get my apron on

I'm going to see Breaking Dawn tonight with a few friends - cannot WAIT!  
 Edward Cullen - yes please. 
(And whew - it's not a midnight showing, I'm just too old for that anymore!!)

The Rescue birthday party pictures did not turn out so great - I think either Dan or I had changed the setting on my camera - so they aren't the best. But it was SUCH a memorable night! :)

Mission homecomings are so sweet! And I feel too old to do midnight showings as well! I'd never make it through!
