Hailey's Engagements & Bridals

Hailey and Riley had some amazing photography sessions with Kacee Preston this past month. We finally got all the prints and there are so many to choose from! Here are a few of my favorites...



Something new to me is called the "first look" where the bride is in her dress and the groom sees her for the first time...



Holly Jo Cushing did Hailey's hair and makeup and Vickie Bright made her bouquet. Gorgeous!


I LOVE that what we've taught as parents to our children their whole lives is coming to fruition... Keep your eyes on the temple so you can be sealed to your eternal companion someday. Can't wait to see these two start their happily ever after on December 27!

Bridal Showers & Birthdays!

Hillary flew in for a short 24 hours to attend two bridal showers for Hailey--ward/neighborhood and family...

The ward shower was well attended with more than 40 fabulous ladies.

They had delicious muffins, fruit and juice and a darling favor to take home...

Some of my favorite people!!

As soon as we loaded up all the fabulous gifts, we made our way to the family shower given by my sister Michelle with help from John's sister-in-law Lee Ann. Again, amazing food and fun!

We took advantage of our month of birthdays (Garrett, Grayson & Hillary) and celebrated at Mikado before dropping Hillary off at the airport. 

Grayson officially became an adult, turning 18 on November 13!

October Hijinks!

SO many fun events in the month of October!! Grayson went to Sadies with his good friend Lauren and they were rockers. I think his group of guys secretly enjoyed adding a little make-up for the full effect...



Cooper rocked his own pink jacket that night!


The Primary was in charge of the neighborhood/ward Trunk or Treat again--3rd one since we've been in the Presidency. Each year is bigger and bigger. The kids absolutely love it and the homemade chilis are always amazing and delicious.



Hailey dressed up as her look-alike Rey from Star Wars and seemed to have a stellar night!

Hailey's Engagement!

Hailey and Riley got engaged Thursday, September 29. Glad Garrett was asked to hide in the bushes and get some photos--especially of the drone when the ring was coming in hot!!


















Hailey and Riley plan to marry in the Salt Lake Temple on December 27, 2016!
