I’ve been wanting to do a blog post but I really haven’t had anything to post about except my mixed and crazy emotions that are hitting me off and on since Gabie’s birthday is coming up. Really I’d probably just whine and boob about how I want to be celebrating his birthday like a normal 3rd birthday and I’m sad that we can’t do that. So I’m not going to whine and boob because I’m thankful for the opportunity we have to do a service for Gabie’s 3rd birthday if we can’t have him here what a better way to celebrate his birth than serving others. I’m getting scared(emotionally) and excited for his upcoming birthday.
Today I’m going to blog about my baby brother a little. I really do not have a lot to say except I’m super proud of him and so excited to have another beautiful sister (in – law). I can’t wait to get to know Sam better. I feel like if we hadn’t moved it’d be much easier to get to know her since we could’ve had them over for dinner and games. But I suppose I’ll just have to work harder to see them and get to know them now since we live 3 hours away.
Ben and Sam had their reception on January 6th and it was a beautiful reception. My mom and sister in laws and Sam and her sister put the entire thing together and did a wonderful job. I was sad not to be able to help more but Sam did ask me to make some sweet bread. Although they all didn’t turn out as perfect as I would’ve liked, the coconut bread was a hit with Sam which made me very happy to have pleased her. Mom told her I had been feeling left out and would love to help. I hope she knows just how much it meant to me for her to call and ask me to help. It’s been hard being the oldest child and wanting to be involved in everything and not being close enough to be of help. I love to serve my sibling when I can and was very sad this time around that I wasn’t close enough to do much. So thank you Sam for asking and letting me pitch in.
Their reception was held at the Swan Lake LDS Church house and it was a very nice evening. Here are some pictures of the night. There are some silly pictures of me and my brothers, I just really do adore all my little brothers and will hug and kiss them any chance I get. I always want them and their wives to know how much I Love them. Also a very silly picture of my dad which shows his true personality when he’s in a good mood. I love that Chet caught it on camera.
