My adorable nephew was born June 30, 2010. There is actually a funny story behind this! About 7 pm I got a phone call from my brother asking me if I would come to the house for an hour or two so they could go to the hospital to get Lindsi checked. (Her due date wasn't until July 20th?) Once they got there, she was dilated far enough so they kept her! Her doctor (the best doctor out there :)) came in at about 11:50pm and asked Parker and Lindsi if they wanted a June or July baby. They said July. So they were just hanging out waiting for the 10 minutes to pass. Dr. Smith asked what time it was, and it was 11:58. Only 2 more minutes. . . One minute later, Dr. Smith looked down, and little Tagg's head was popping out. Apparently he didn't want a July Birthday!

I feel so honored to have 13 nieces and nephews!
Tagg is such a wonderful addition to this family!
I love you Tagg!
p.s. Lindsi, I stole these cute pictures from your blog.
Hope you don't mind. Your pictures are so much better than the ones I have.

This year my Dad's birthday fell on Father's day. It's always bitter sweet when that happens. I'm trying really hard to be better about not having big days (like his birthday, Father's Day, or the day he passed away) be a sad day. My sister is a great example to me, and on days like that, she makes it a big celebration about remembering his life, and all the good things he did while he was here, and remembering all the good memories we have of him. I'm trying to follow her example!

Ryan, Kate, and I went to visit Dad on his birthday and Father's Day.

Kate's first visit to Grandpa's grave.
She was so happy to be there!
I remember this day like it was yesterday! I felt so LUCKY to have my Dad baptize me. He had been really sick, and didn't know if he would be able to do it. He had lost his voice completely. I knew he wanted to be the one to baptize me, and he did everything in his power to make that happen! Since his voice was gone, my wonderful Grandpa confirmed me. I feel honored to have the 2 most important men in my life at the time perform those ordinances for me.

I don't remember what the occasion was, but my brother copied this picture,
framed it, and gave to all his sisters. It's such a classy picture! Thanks Parker!

Dad, I know your soarin' high looking over all of us. I know you want nothing but the best for us. I'm trying hard to make you proud!
Happy late Birthday Dad!
I love you more than words can say.

Now that it's taken me 4, almost 5 months to get back on here. . . I thought I would finally post some pictures of my wonderful sister in law. I had a lot of fun going back 5 years and looking at all my pictures. Lindsi, there are so many pictures of us that has brought back wonderful memories! Here are just a few. (I probably should have done more recent ones, but oh well!)

Right before I quit Jet Blue, we went on a sister's trip to New York,
and had the time of our life! In this picture we had just gotten done seeing Wicked.
I couldn't resist adding this picture! One year in Jackson, we got the Old
Fashion pictures taken, and I think we had too much fun messing around.

(Minus their newest addition, Tagg.)
I'm sorry its taken so long adding the pictures, but it's better late than never, Right?
I hope you had a great birthday!
