Wow I'm Behind!

Well so much has happened since I last posted!

First I got a new laptop! It is a Dell and it is red! I love it! It is so nice and I'm finally using a computer that belongs to me and not Mike's work! Mike got a great deal on it with a 15% off coupon and got it from the scratch and dent section so it was cheap! Here are a few pictures!

Not quite sure why this picture turned this way!

This is what it looks like open

We also had the opportunity to go to the Draper Temple Open House! We went on February 28th. It was so awesome! The girls loved the temple. Katelyn on the bus ride home said her favorite part was the baptismal font and she said, "Mommy, I want to be baptized someday." *heart melting* The temple is beautiful inside. I can't wait to go after it is dedicated! I was awesome and totally remembered the camera...except the batteries died after the only one picture...and I was telling Mike not to look like a nerd...and well this is it! But it was so great and we really had a great time!

The next and most exciting thing is my brother came home from his mission. He was serving in the Canada Toronto East Mission. My parents went to pick him up and flew through SLC so we could all see him! He is so grown up and it was so amazing to see him! I'm amazed at how a mission makes a boy a man! It was so great to see him after 2 years! My sister flew in from TX with her baby at 4:50pm and my parents flight didn't get in until 6:50pm. So we got to wait at the airport for a while. It was worth the wait! Here are a few pictures of us getting ready for him to come and then when they came!

The girls were playing while we waited.

The kids were so excited for Uncle KK!

Here are the kids ready for Caleb to come down the escalator

Here is all of us waiting. When he came down the escalator we all yelled,"Welcome Home Ay!" and then we all screamed! He was a little embarrassed!

It was so great to see him! He grew up so much!

He is just the same but grown up! We sure missed Caleb and we were so excited to see him!

Here is a video of the kids while we were waiting...

Okay dede- cute pictures and video! So lindsay showed us the video she recorded or jared. Can't remember! it was awesome and real nice and fun. took me back to the day Jared got home from his mission back in 2001. What a neat video to see. I was glad i was able to see it and glad all the little ones got to be there and everything. my favorite part of the video is when he got off the escalator and the kids ran to him and gave hugs and stuff. How fun!
