Yesterday my younger sister, Melanie, had her first baby, a little girl! Jordyn was born at 10:11 pm and weighed in at 7 lb 1 oz and was 19 inches long! Melanie did really well, and only had to push through about 3 contractions before they called the doctor and she had to stop pushing to wait for the doctor! Once the doctor was there, she only had to push through about 5 contractions before Jordyn joined us! It was a really amazing experience to be a part of her birth, and I am so happy for Melanie and Danny! Jordyn is so cute, and was so alert, even right after she came out! It was so precious to see Melanie and Danny connecting with her, and I know they are going to be a happy and cute family!
I should have posted this a while ago! So, tomorrow is the last day of the Festival of Trees. If you haven't gone yet, you should go! Thanks in huge part to my good friend Emily, we were able to get a big donation for our tree for Caydin from Bear River Mutual Insurance Company. They held a Halloween employee sale where employees either baked, or made something, and then sold it to each other. They donated all the proceeds to us for Caydin's tree! It was Emily's idea to ask them if they would help us out, and her husband, who works there, was kind enough to take in a letter from us. So, here is our Narnia themed tree done in Caydin's honor! Our tree is located in O-05. It was a fun, and emotional journey getting this tree done, and we were so excited when we went to the Festival today to see that it had sold!
I am a wife and mother of six beautiful children! My oldest child and son passed away on August 28th, 2005 when he was 2 1/2 after a choking accident the day before. We miss him, but know he's in a better place and will always be looking out for his family! I am currently in school at USU online working towards my Family Life Studies degree and hope to one day be a marriage and family educator. Life is busy with five growing children to take care of, but we're having fun and learning as we go!
