Family Time

As I mentioned in my last post, last week was spent in Oklahoma for my grandmother's funeral. Even under the circumstances, it was a great time with my family. Again, these are iPhone pictures inside, so not the best quality.

Kanyon and I stayed with my cousin Emily who lives in Edmond, where the majority of my family lives. We got there at about 2:00 am on Monday night/Tuesday morning. The few days we were there were spent reminiscing, going through Grandma's things which was so fun and interesting, and just spending time talking. 

Tuesday night, my dad's plane hadn't arrived yet and Kanyon and Uncle Dean went to Stillwater for an OSU basketball game. So my mom's sister and my mom and her girls and me had a girl's night :)

Finally my dad got there! I was really excited to see this guy.

The next day, my cousin Amy had a baby! Great timing! We may have had a death of a long and well-lived life, but we also had a birth of a new life in our family.

I was so excited to be able to meet Ellasyn Faith!

The next couple of nights were spent at my aunt's house again, just spending time together.

Being a dog-lover is a family thing clearly :)

I'm missing them already! Family Reunion at Thanksgiving can't come soon enough!
