Grant and I got sealed on Saturday at the Houston, TX temple and it was wonderful! We've been waiting for this day for a while and nothing could take away from our happiness, not even the weird crepe place we ate at afterwards! We will be posting pics as soon as Heather is done editing, but it was a beautiful day and the temple grounds were perfect. I never knew we had such a pretty temple in Texas. We love how green Houston is and how many trees there are, even downtown is covered in them. It's a very cool city, and we feel very blessed to have been sealed there.

Feeling Under the Weather

So I've felt kind of gross the past couple of days, my head feels like it's been hit by a ton of bricks, I've been running a low grade fever, and the weather forecast is bad for this weekend so I've been kinda down. Then this morning Sienna was eating m&m's because she found them on the table (her abuela had brought them when she picked up Grant for work and Grant had left them on the table) and I didn't feel good enough to make a real breakfast and she looked up at me and said, "Your my best friend, mommy." It was so sincere and my heart just melted and I totally forgot about how yucky I feel and the weather this weekend and was reminded of how lucky I am to get to stay at home with Sienna, and what a blessed life I lead.

Going away party

Well last night/early this morning was Daniel's going away party for his mission. Daniel let us have his old camera because he got a new one, and I'm pretty excited, but I think Natalie was just a bit more excited than I was. It was fun to get out of the house and actually hang out with people, something that we don't get to do near as often as we would like. Sienna had a great time playing with Adam and Jacob, and Natalie got to hold Caden, David and Cilla's newest addition. We saw a bunch of old friends from singles ward and it was nice to reconnect with them. We ate a lot and laughed until 1:00am and then we had to go home, we're getting old I guess. It was a lot of fun and we're happy for Daniel.

Some More Pics

These are some of our favorite pics and a pic of Sienna's new haircut. The wedding pics were done by Heather McClelland at

We're Getting Sealed!!!

For those of you who don't know, I was married before Grant and it of course ended and Grant and I have been waiting on the temple cancellation to go get sealed. It was a very long process because of botched paper work, but it finally came in and we're getting sealed April 11th in the Houston temple at 3:00 pm. We are so excited and want all of our loves one that can to come. We didn't send out an invite, so just show up if you can. We're having a photographer/friend, Heather McClelland come and shoot that day so we would like everyone to come in clothes that coordinate with yellow and gray. I hope to see you there!

Here are the most current pics of Sienna taken by our favorite photographer, and one of Natalie's best friends Heather McClelland.

The first post

We are working on getting moved to Idaho, and basically long term camping in New Jersey for the summer. Things are a bit hectic, but at least Natalie has a little more time now that she's not watching Hudson. I spend most of my time working or doing school stuff, but the semester only has about a month left. Sienna is still as crazy as ever, and is growing so fast that I can't believe it. I guess that's all that we really have going on right now, well at least all that I can think of. Oh well I guess I should mention that we are getting ready to get sealed in Houston on the 11th, so that is very exciting. Hopefully we will have some great sealing pics in about 2 weeks.
