Summer 2011

*****NOTE: I'm having technical difficulties with this post and have literally been fighting it for over half hour. I just bot the low battery warning and am calling it. Hope it makes sense!

Wow, I can't believe how fast this summer has flown by. Tomorrow is the last day of August and I can't help be a little sad. Our family has had such a busy, eventful few months.

First, Elder Fackrell took off for the Florida Orlando Mission.

I don't know what I expected it to be like with him serving, but its been a lot harder than I imagined. He is doing so well and loving it so much. It is so amazing to watch him grow and learn and bring people to the knowledge of the Savior. But it has been so hard having him gone. He is such a strong part of our family. He was always there and I definitely took that for granted. A lot of times he blended into the background, but he was always there. I'm so proud of him.

Then in July, we waited for Baby Webb. And waited and waited.

And on August 4th, Asher Heber made it worth our wait! It was so incredible to see my brave, strong sister welcome that little guy into the world. What a labor of love. I'm so, so in love with him and wish I could hang out with him instead of being at work all day.

Then, Elise Fackrell became Elise Bruckner. Talk about GLOWING. She was SO happy. I'm so happy for her and it was so much fun. The wedding was in the Bountiful Temple and then we had such a fun reception with dancing and everything. Congrats Elise and Mike!!!

Somehow, in the middle of it all, Katie and Nate's kids grew up. They are so big. I don't know how it happened.

I'm so thankful for my family. Love them so much. They make my life colorful and I'd be lost without them.

Your family is just too cute. And holy cow, Katie's kids are all grown up. I'm glad you updated so that I can know what's going on in your busy life. We need to try to get together in the near future.

What the weird technical annoying! Cute post though with all of the family updates. It has been a very busy, eventful summer. And now I can't believe it is all over. We are entering your favorite season of the year. :)

I love this post! Thanks for updating...I was getting a little sick of those Seattle pictures staring back at me when I clicked on your blog! You did a great job of summing the summer up.
