Taylor and Youngsun got hitched

 The reception was held at the Stake Center and Youngsun wanted lights to be strung on the ceiling.  I worried about it for months wondering if we could pull it off.  I don't know why I worried married to Steve, I should have known he would figure it out.  It took awhile but was so worth it.  We were able to set most things up the night before. 

 Everything at the temple was beautiful.  When Taylor and Youngsun came into the room she was already crying.  Taylor remained composed and it was a beautiful sealing.  I am grateful all of my children have been worthy to be married in the temple.  Attending civil marriages always leaves me feeling sad knowing that the union will end at death.  The weather was perfect and we were able to get some great pictures at the temple. 
 Our beautiful Moms and I'm pretty sure our Dads were also present at the ceremony.

 I think I have a very happy son.  He found someone that understands him and is a perfect match.  Here is Youngsuns family. 

 My children are beautiful inside and out.  This picture makes me a proud momma.
 We held the wedding luncheon at Jims.  The food was wonderful and filling, 

 Getting ready for the reception.  Everything looked beautiful.  The reception was so much fun.  They had a photo booth that was a hit and a DJ.  They didn't have a line which is an awesome idea.  It was just what they wanted, a big party.

Miles Stephen is here!

 Friday night we went down to Provo to help Greg with his swamp cooler.  Me and Taryn and Lauren went fabric shopping and sat outside and visited.  Lauren was a bit disappointed because she had only had one contraction that day and wondered if she was ever going to have this baby.  During the night Steve's phone beeped and woke me up, but I didn't think much of it just went back to sleep.  When we got up it was a text from Greg saying they had admitted
 Lauren into the hospital to have the baby.  That morning we had the Kalemia and we all ran in the races.  Then we spent the afternoon waiting for news.  That night we went to the temple with YoungSun and hurried out to see if there was any news of our grandson.  Saturday night they finally broke her water and we expected to see a picture of our grandson when we woke up.  Very disappointing to see no messages. 
We went to Stake Conference and an hour into it, Greg texted Steve and said they were going to do a c-section within the hour.  Came home and waited and waited.  We tried so hard to be patient but it was hard wondering what was going on.  Finally we got news that Miles had been born.  He weighed 8lbs and was 19 inches long.  After two long days we got to go to the hospital and hold this beautiful little guy. 

 We didn't know that his middle name was Stephen until we held him.  Steve is pretty excited about that.  The next day he noticed Greg's shirt had his son's initials on it. 
Heather is pretty smitten with him.  Maybe there will be a little boy in her future.  I can always hope.  Braelyn was so cute holding him and is excited to be older so she can babysit.  We are so thankful everything is fine with him and his Mom.   Welcome little Miles.

Awesome Day.

A couple of weeks ago I got to take this beautiful daughter of mine through the temple.   My main goal in life is to have my family with me in the celestial kingdom and having all my children temple worthy is one step closer to that goal and dream.   It was wonderful to be sitting in that session and seeing all my children there.  I can't wait for the next couple of weeks to be in the temple again as Taylor and YoungSun and Taryn and Bret get married.  Life is pretty good right now.
