During Spring Break we went on a family vacation to St. George Utah. We had so much fun seeing lots of family and being their for Peyton's blessing. Joshua's Dad, Teresa and his sister Amanda came to St. George and were were able to spend time with them. The girls loved seeing Aunt Amanda and their grandparents:).

On Saturday we went to breakfast in the morning at McDonalds and met Grandma & Grandpa and Aunt Amanda. The girls loved playing and Saturday was a day full of lots of fun.

Joshua's Dad and Teresa are very artistic and they painted this mural
for the McDonalds in St. George

After breakfast we headed to Snow Canyon and enjoyed climbing the rocks and the girls had no fear. They were going up and down the mountain and had fun exploring the area.

Since Joshua's Dad and Teresa aren't able to be here for holidays with the girls we celebrated 3 holidays in one day. The first holiday we celebrated was Christmas:)
The girls loved opening up presents.

The girls were COLD

It started to rain and hail so Aunt Amanda made the girls a fort under the table

Since we got hailed on at Snow Canyon we ended up going to Teresa's brother's
house to celebrate more holidays.
The girls loved the Easter Egg Hunt.

The girls with Grandma

The girls had so much fun in their halloween costumes and loved going trick or treating:).

We were so happy that we were able to be in Utah for the blessing of sweet baby Peyton. She is such a beautiful baby and we love our cousins so much. Were excited to come see you again sometime hopefully soon. Nick and Tasha were so sweet and we were so grateful that we were able to stay in their home. The girls loved playing with their son Carter and staying in his room. Thank you so much for everything and were so happy that we were able to see you and stay up late talking and eating ice cream:).

Tasha & me and baby Peyton. Her blessing dress is gorgeous.

Baby Peyton is so precious.
I made her a baby tutu, bracelet and flower:)

On our way home from St George we stopped in Vegas so the girls could see the hotels,
dancing waters and we ate dinner in Vegas.

Grandma's Funeral Day

March 1st was the day of my beautiful Grandmother's funeral. TONS of pictures were taken and as I was debating on whether or not to post some of the pics I decided to. As I was looking at the pictures and I saw the picture of all of family it brought tears of joy to me.

It made me think about the decision my grandparents made to be married for all Eternity in the Temple 53 years ago and that they raised 4 beautiful children and they had children etc. I am so grateful for such amazing grandparents, Aunts, Uncles, cousins and I am so thankful that EVERYONE on the Fletcher side of the family was there except my cousin serving a mission in chili.

I know my grandma would be so happy that all of us were there for her special day and that as hard as it was to have her pass away she lives within each of us family members. My grandma loved life, lived beauty, loved family and most of all loved living the Gospel of Jesus Christ.

It all began with my grandparents:)

and just the way she would have loved.

Grandma's Fun Visit

Joshua's mom flew in from Alaska last week and she was with us the whole week. The girls loved having grandma here and she spoiled all of us. We went shopping, made tutu's for the girls and enjoyed spending time together.

Thank you so much for coming to see us and the girls loved having their grandma here. They always call Joshua's mom Grandma in Alaska even when she's visiting us. That's the title they gave her since she lives there. We are so excited to come visit them in the summer and the girls are so excited to meet their baby cousin Amade and spend time in the beautiful state of Alaska.

We love you and thank you for visiting us ans thank you for EVERYTHING.
