Wedding Pictures

I know Cassidy and Trevor got married 3 months ago, but since I haven't been blogging for quite some time, I never took the time to post any pictures. So here are a few of my favorites.

Happy Family

So really how long can you go between posts before you no longer have the right to be a blogger? I am sure I should be disqualified. So sorry...... I won't promise to do better in the future, but I really will try to make more of an effort. I miss reading my family and friends' blogs so I will check more often and try to post more often. It's my favorite time of year, though, and I just wanted to wish everyone a very Merry Christmas. Just remember to enjoy the holidays. Take the time to enjoy the sights, sounds and smells of Christmas. Listen to your favorite Christmas music and read Christmas stories and share special family time. But most importantly, please remember what Christmas is all about. Christ is who we celebrate. Don't leave him out of the celebration. Remind your children daily why we have Christmas. And, my challenge to you is to take the time to make another person's Christmas a little more special. Reach out to someone who might not have as good of a Christmas as you will. I promise, it will bring into your heart the true meaning of Christmas and that can't be duplicated. May His spirit fill your heart and home this Christmas season. Love to you all!

Samantha's Graduation 2009

Cassidy, Aunt Cassie, Aunt Janna, Sam, Mom, Aunt Jenny and Grandma Jenkins
Cassidy Elizabeth and Samantha Noel

Samantha graduated from high school the end of May. It's hard to believe she is old enough. But she is ready to move on to bigger and better things! She is quite excited to go to Utah State in the fall. We were very appreciative of the support from family who came to be with Sam on her big day!

Wedding Bells.....

Hello all my blogging friends. I know, I know it's been over a month since I blogged. I have discovered facebook and so have been preoccupied with that lately. But today I have good news I want to share..... My cute Cassidy got engaged yesterday! Yeah! I am so excited for her and Trevor. They are a beautiful couple! It's weird to think I am old enough to have a daughter getting married but I really am, even though I only got married a few years ago :) or so it seems! So CONGRATULATIONS Cassidy and Trevor! I know you will be very happy together. I know the summer is going to seem endless but just think in a few short months you will be together forever! I love you both and couldn't be happier with your news!!!

Lamest Blogger Award.....

Ok, I know I get the lamest blogger award. I haven't blogged in 5 weeks! How sad is that. I'm usually at work when I have time to blog and then I don't have any pictures on my computer. When I'm home and have all the pictures, I don't have time. Excuses, excuses......well, I have also discovered facebook and that seems to be a great way to keep in touch and reconnect with old friends. So, sorry it's been so incredibly long and this blog itself is so boring. I will try to get on my computer at home and post some pics. Hope you're all having a great day!!
