Carina's 21st Birthday and end of August

Carina came up to celebrate her birthday and we just had a little celebration at home with Jenner and the family.

In between celebrating her birthday, Cee Ryle had to go drop something off to ask someone to homecoming. He filled a pinata with candy and then hung it somewhere in her yard. She had to break the pinata to find out who was asking. 

Happy 21st Birthday to happy Carina! She keeps things lively for us! I can't believe she is already 21! I am a lucky mom to have such a beautiful and talented daughter!

She got an awesome backpack!

This is a poster that Gracie took to school when she was the spotlight. I of course would not have done something so awesome, who has time? But luckily Kailee was home and she had time to help her come up with this cute poster!
 Taylor Swift was coming to Utah on September 4th. Sidney and Kailee were dying to go but tickets were so hard to come by. Tickets sold in minutes and I wanted to get this for Sidney's birthday but they were gone by the time I got on. So the girls were trying anything to get tickets. They entered a video contest and filmed all kinds of things, spent hours and hours getting it together and nothing. 

Then on day there was a lip sinc contest and we had to go try and sing. Sidney couldn't even go cause she was working. It was at the Gateway. Gracie had fun playing in the fountains while we waited.

I was lucky number 13! 

After a few hours and embarrassing ourselves in front of people we didn't win. Not the sing off and not the drawing!

The girls did two videos. This is the first one which qualified them for the final round. 

For the second round they had to do some type of service and then post the video. Whoever got the most views on their video won. Well the girls did an awesome video that is very touching and inspiring but others cheated by looping their video that Kailee and Sidney did no win again. Agghh so frustrating and sad! They did so much work and nothing. Here's the link to the video:

Kade and Jaqueline got married in Bountiful and then they had a reception in Idaho. So Casey's parents, Jef and Jenner and the rest of us went up for the special day.

Sidney's Mission Call and August Birthdays

We had a nice dinner with lots of family. It was the end of education week and the beginning of a semester to Jef and Jenner were here and also grandma and grandpa from Cheyenne. Sidney had also received her mission call so we clumped it all together in one celebration.

We had a map where everyone guessed where Sidney was going. We had all kinds of guesses.

We love how much the grandparents support us in everything we do.

No need to say anything. A picture speaks a thousand words.

You are hereby called to serve as a missionary of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. You are assigned to labor in the Arizona Mesa Mission. It is anticipated that you will serve for a period of 18 months. You should report to the Provo Missionary Training Center on Wednesday, November 4, 2015.

We are so proud of Sidney and her choice to serve a mission. She will be a a wonderful missionary! Mesa, Arizona is lucky to have her. She will be an inspiration to all those she comes in contact with.

Casey's Birthday and beginning of August

One day there was so much rain that people were surfing.

Happy Birthday to the best husband and father in the world! 

We were able to get premiere tickets to see Once I was a Beehive. It is such a cute and funny movie.

Brianna and Cee Ryle went to EFY and we got to keep Brianna for a few extra days so why not to go Pizza Pie Cafe and have fun together.

Gracie got glasses
