Aria's Newborn Picture's-Two weeks Old

Aria's newborn pictures turned out so cute.  None of us had ever used her photographer before, but she is Jayden's friends mother.  How could they not though.  Aria is such a pretty little princess.

This is my favorite!

1st Time To Babysit

It was Teisha and Ryan's 4th anniversary last night, so they came down and we babysat Aria while they went to dinner.  It was so nice just holding her.  I know it was hard on Teisha to leave her for a couple of hours.

Grandma time!

It sure has been fun to watch Aria grow.  I can't believe how much she changes every day.  It's hard not having her right here.  Even though she is only 40 miles away, it seems so far.  I love getting texts with pictures and snap chats.  Thank goodness for modern technology.


Her momma posted this picture.
She loves having her hands by her face.

Another post from Teisha.

Aria wore daddy out.

They are both worn out from a long night.

Fun, Surprise Visitors

My brother Steven and his wife of 3 days called and asked if them and his in-laws could stay the night at our house tonight on their way to their new home in Phoenix Arizona.  They both got teaching jobs there and her parents are helping them get moved and wanted to stop and see us.  We went to the same high school as her parents (Steve and Heather Sessions).  Heather graduated in Jayson's class and Steve's younger brother Kevin was one of Jayson's best friends.  It was fun having them at the house and Teisha and Ryan brought the baby for them to see.
Steven is proud to be a great uncle.

My Brother Steven Got Married

My youngest brother Steven has been dating Stephany Sessions for 2 years.  Both of them were attending the University of Wyoming in Laramie.  Jayson and I went to school with Stephany's parents.  Her mother was in Jayson's grade and her father is a year older than Jayson and her father's brother was one of Jayson's best friends in high school.  They got married in Sheridan, Wyoming at her home and had their reception on her parents property and my mom had a reception in Lovell on Monday night.  I wasn't able to attend because I was in Springdale helping Teisha with the baby and her recovery.  My sister in-law made sure she sent me some great pictures though.
