Fathers Day

Fathers Day was spent crying and celebrating! I cried all morning for my own father, then spent the rest of the day celebrating the wonderful father my children have and Alan has. We had our friends who own the candy store in town make Alan a rice krispie treat cake...his favorite! She did a fantastic job, thanks again Courtney! Alan's brother Brian and wife Kelli were there, and we had a delicious barbeque in spite of the rainy weather! Cameron got to read the paper with Grandma, his favorite activity, and Aubrey and Christian played in the creek outside. Anyways, here are a few pics of our day spent up at Grandpa and Grandma Gordon's house.

Aubrey was baptized a few weeks ago and it was truly one of the most special days of my life. There is nothing in the world that compares to seeing the spirit literally radiating out of one of your children. We are so proud of her for the choice she made!

We were lucky to be able to move into the new house two days before her baptism. So, we moved the furniture in on Thursday and the family showed up on Friday. It was a whirlwind, but wonderful! I missed my father terribly at her baptism, and prayed with all my heart that he was there to witness her milestone. We are so grateful for all the family that was there. We know it was a sacrifce for many to be there, so THANK YOU!
Fathers Day was bittersweet and wonderful at the same time. I am so grateful this year for Alan's wonderful Dad and the way he has truly stepped in and helped during my worst of days. Fathers are great! But, most of all I am grateful for Alan. My children are so lucky to have him, and so am I. The longer I am married to him I become increasingly more grateful for the guidance I received to marry him. I don't know what I would do without him!
The kids are all loving their summer and play HARD all day long. I love it! It's what being a kid is all about.
