I want to thank all of my friends who have offered prayers for my dad and his family. My grandmother (Great Grandma Betty "Bunny" as Nate called her) pasted away at the beginning of November. Eli and I traveled back to Nebraska to spend time with family. My wonderful cousin Sarahbelle flew in from Colorado to help with the boys so I was able to attend the funeral. I am very grateful she could help out!! It was important that I be there with my parents and the family.

I wanted to post some pictures of my Grandma Betty and the pictures from the trip. Above is a picture of our cousin Kyla, my sister Erica, and I with Grandma Betty, below is a picture of Grandma Betty and I at the farm.

While we were at the farm, Eli enjoyed doing some trading online with Uncle Rick

In my glory days this stair step was reversed.....this was many years ago. I think the last time I was the tallest I was eleven....I am determined to find that picture just to prove it!

Newport Bay

This month has been such a blur.....I feel like yesterday was Halloween. I am way behind so get excited for several post in row :) We have had for the most part awesome weather this month, it really didn't get cooler until this past week. We manage to squeeze in a few beach and pool days. Early in the month my grandmother pasted away, so Eli and I made a trip back to Nebraska. This past week Brian's family flew out to visit for the holiday......so we have been busy.
A few pictures from a beach day with our buddies...
