Our week was a busy one. We got home on Sunday night (after spending the weekend with Justin's family). Our plan was to be home a little while on Monday morning (to wrap up a few things with work and get in a quick dr. appointment). Then we were going to head back to be with Justin's family on Monday and Tuesday. Unfortunately the weather did not cooperate at all. We had blizzard/white out conditions, and we could not leave. We live on the outskirts of town, and there were times we couldn't see across the street. We drove about a mile past our house and knew there was no way we could leave town. We weren't able to leave until Tuesday morning. Everything worked out fine, we just wished we could have been with everyone on Monday night too.
Tuesday was a busy day for us with visitation, the funeral, and burial, but it was a nice day. The service was beautiful. One of the songs that was sung was I Will Rise ... I didn't tell anyone until that morning, but that was the song that was on the radio when Justin and I left the nursing home after Grandpa Tunis had passed away. I remember thinking how fitting it was at the time, but I had no idea that was one of the songs that would be sung at his funeral.
Jordyn slept through the whole funeral. My mom kept her during that time. We know how much of a struggle it can be to keep Jordyn quiet and occupied during church, so my mom just kept her. It worked out very well.
After Jordyn's afternoon nap, we all headed over to Justin's grandma's house. We spent the afternoon and evening there before heading back to SF.
Jordyn kept us on our toes and had us all laughing. :) She has recently decided she wants to work on her tumbling. She started this all on her own. This picture does not even start to show how funny she thought she was, but she would be on her hands and feet and just laugh at us and would want us to look at her. This picture looks quite ridiculous, but there really isn't a good way to take this picture ...
This is Jordyn with Kailyn. We met Kailyn and her mom, Angela, for the first time. Angela is married to Justin's cousin, Michael. Michael is in the Air Force, so we do not get to see him often. We are so thankful they were able to join us for a few days. We really enjoyed getting to know Angela and Kailyn!
We were pretty worn out for the rest of the week. I think we were happy to have the weekend arrive. :) Yesterday my mom, sisters, and I ran to the bridal store ... Kandi's dress was altered and she needed to try it on again. Our bridesmaids dresses were also in, but I didn't even attempt to try to mine on. Ha! Last night we had dinner with Justin's parents, Grandma Helen, Grandpa Gerry & Grandma Marcia, and Justin's Uncle Roger & Aunt Sherri. Today we went to church, went out for lunch, all took a nap, and then did a little shopping at the mall. The weekends sure fly by!
I have several posts that I need to finish - I hope to have them done soon!
