Garrett's Home!!!

 I know that you cant read this sign but it says Garrett's Plane was on time! It was so fun driving to the airport to him up. We were all so excited to see him again. I really could not believe it. Before Garrett flew out to Mexico he was at the airport and he called me. We visited and at that time I had just found out that I was pregnant with Leah so I was excited to tell him my news before I told anyone else. Now Leah is 15 Months old and has ever met her uncle Garrett. I cant believe how time has flown. It seems like yesterday when he called me, eager to go out and share the gospel. Well, now are the ones excited to see Garrett come home. Here is a picture of all of us eagerly waiting to see him again.
 Here is Leah hanging out with Gunner in his stroller.
 Here is Justin waiting to take some Video of Garrett coming down the escalators.
 I know that this next picture is blurry but I had to have a picture of him coming down the escalators.
Here is a picture of Garrett and Jordan greeting each other.

 Garret we are so happy that you are home. We love you and sure missed you when you were gone.

Jacob's Grave

The morning that we were to go and get Garrett off the plane we all went up to see my nephew's grave. It was a year to the day that he had passed away. My hold family ended up coming to support my sister Cassy on this hard day. All the grandkids signed a little bear for Jacob and several people brought flowers. Many tears were shed but we know that Jacob is in a better place waiting to be reunited with his family.
 Here is a cute picture of Cassy and her family near Jacob's grave.
 Here is the kids next the the grave.
 Here is a picture of my parents, near the grave.
 My Grandma Millett was also able to come. It was really fun to see her and talk with her. We love you grandma.
 Just a couple of headstones down is where my Grandpa Millett is berried. Jacob is actually named after my grandpa. Here is a close up of his headstone. We love and miss you grandpa.

Trip to pick up Uncle Garret

The night before my brother Garrett was to fly home from his mission we all drove out to Salt Lake City in preparation to go and get him from the air port the next morning. We all went to my sister's Cassy's home and decorated cookies since it was valentines day. The cousin's all enjoy getting together and spending time together. Later, that night we noticed that Leah was missing so Justin went to look for her to see what she was getting into. Justin found them playing in my niece's room. They were so cute that he had to take some pictures. So I thought that I would share.

This last picture is of my niece Abby. She is so cute and was showing off for the camera. We love you Abby.

Valentine Cookies

This year Leah and I were shopping to decide what to do for Valentines Day. We were walking along the aisle in Wal-Mart and we saw these cookies that Leah really wanted to eat. Can we say toddler melt down when i told her that we were not getting the cookies that she was trying to take off the shelf. Well anyways, at that moment I decided that it would be fun to make some Valentines cookies with Leah. Little did I know how much work it was going to be. I do think that Leah had the best time, and I think that I was a little frazzled by the time we were done. All in all we had fun, and we even got to give some Valentine Cookies to family. I do think that Leah's favorite part of the night was when we got to try our own cookies. Here are some fun pictures...

The cooked not only looked good but they sure tasted good. It was a lot of hard work, but I would do it again in a minute.

A Short Trip!

This last weekend we had the chance to travel out to payson to spend some time with the family. While we were out there they had the annual family birthday party. We ate dinner together and sang the famous Rowley birthday song. It was fun to talk and spend time with family. The next day we had a chance to go out to Salt Lake City to watch Jeremy (Justin's Brother) bless his new daughter Gallia. She is such a cute baby. We were so glad that we got to spend that time with everyone even though it was a short trip. Here are some fun pictures....

Morgan Baptsim

This last week Leah and I traveled to Green River Utah to see my niece Morgan be baptized. On Friday we had a lot of fun spending time with family, playing games and just having fun. Then on Saturday we went over to the church to see Morgan be baptized. She looked so cute in her white dress. Morgan we are so proud of you for the choice that you had made. I hope that you will always remember the feeling that you had that day when you entered the waters of baptism. It was pretty special. We love you. Thanks for letting us attend.
