Grandma Scott

My dear, sweet Grandma Scott just passed away. Unfortunately, my dad was the only one who got to attend her funeral since it was over in England. Although, I didn't get to see her much growing up, I loved our conversations over the phone and her cheerful attitude. She was hilarious, just like my dad. I have so many fond memories of our families last visit out to see her. She loved to play board games, especially Triominos. She had great stories to tell and loved to make us laugh by taking out her teeth. I'm glad she lived a good life and can now be reunited with my Grandpa. I hope they will both accept the gospel now. This is a picture my dad found of the both of them as a young couple. I love it!

I can't even begin to express how much fun I had in Utah with my family. It had been an entire 9 months since I had seen them. It was a trip that was long overdue. The best part was getting to see Kellen play with and enjoy his cousins. We have missed them like crazy. It always amazes me how much they all grow and change with each visit.

There is no doubt that when we get together we try to fit in as many things as possible and make every minute count. My mom and dad loved having Kellen at the house, even though he was a constant ball of energy. They spoiled him like crazy. Now we're back in Arizona and missing them already. It doesn't seem fair that we can't live closer sometimes, but I really have to appreciate all the wonderful blessings we have. Even though we can't be in the same state, at least we're within driving distance now.

These are only a fraction of the pictures taken, but they're some of my favorites.

Home At Last

We are in our new house and have been since April 6th. However, we just got internet a couple days ago and I've been working up the courage to start blogging about everything that's been going this past month. It feels like such a daunting task. Hopefully I'll get around to it soon. I have so many wonderful pictures to post of Easter and my trip to Utah. Until then, just know I love living in a house and pretending it's mine...oh wait, it is MINE!!! I love it!!! I'm off to prepare my talk for this Sunday. Oh, the joys of moving into a new ward.

Quick Update

No, we still aren't in our house yet. We keep asking ourselves "will today be the day?" It's crazy how many things keep slowing down the whole process. We're trying to be optimistic and patient but it's hard. I mostly can't wait to get Kellen on a schedule again and out of a pack-n play in his own bedroom.
I arrived in Arizona Saturday night and we've been staying at Tyler's wonderful Grandparents house. We had the best time in Utah visiting my family though and I miss them so much already. I have so many great pictures to post but unfortunately my camera plug to download pictures is packed away somewhere. Arizona has been so beautiful and warm since we got here though. My sister has been visiting her in-laws family in Mesa this weekend also. We got to take the kids to the Phoenix Zoo this morning which was awesome. I've got to run but hopefully we'll be in our new house by the time I add another post.
