Since our last post a lot has happened in our little family!
*I was hired as a hygienist at Soft Touch Dental in Idaho Falls, I work Tuesday, Wednesday and every other Friday. *Jon was hired as a driver/do-it-all handy man at Simplot. *Jon finished another semester at SLCC, all online (I would never be able to do well at online classes, I'm so proud of him). *Brynlee turned 6 months, got shots and pictures. *Aunt Shy Shy graduated from high school. *We moved into a 2 bedroom rental house next to my parents (I think the space is good for everyone, but grandpa comes and visits Brynlee almost every day). *We cleaned out my grandparent's house. We thought it would take all summer, but with at least 10 people there every day we got it done in a week.
Life is great and things are definitely looking up for us. We are so blessed to have such supportive family. I am so grateful that my parents opened their home to us. I don't know what we would have done the past 6 months without them. It is nice to still be so close.
A couple of weeks ago Shyenne was making this sound at Brynlee and she would giggle out loud. Of course it took me a while to think to get the video camera out, so she wasn't quite as excited.
Brynlee has had diaper rash the past 2 days and it looks so painful. After googling what to do several suggestions mentioned an oatmeal bath. At midnight last night I gave Brynlee an oatmeal bath and she seemed to like it.
Brynlee is 4 months old. We go in for her 4 month check up tomorrow. Where does the time go?
Sorry about all of the pictures!!! I have been looking through our pictures and just realized I haven't posted many. Brynlee was blessed December 27th in the Lewisville 1st Ward by her dad. Her dad gave her a very special blessing and it was a very special day. We had a luncheon at my parents house afterward. We are so grateful that we have this little angel in our lives. Grandma Sundberg made Brynlee's blessing dress and quilt. It is something that Brynlee will treasure forever.
As soon as I found out I was pregnant my Great-Grandma wanted to have a 5 generation picture taken. We found out we were expecting a girl and it made it even that much more exciting. We were going to have 5 generations of girls. I am so grateful for these women and the example they have been to me.
Of course I missed all of the big smiles, but here is Brynlee playing with her Great Grandma Linda. We were at the basketball game waiting for Shyenne to perform and Brynlee was just having a good time.

We began celebrating Christmas on Christmas Eve at the Sundberg's house. We had a delicious Sweedish dinner, were visited by Santa Claus and unwrapped our gifts from eachother and pjs. Christmas morning we woke up at 5:45 and opened our presents from Grandma & Grandpa Sundberg and Brynlee's presents from Santa. We then went to my parents house to open presents from eachother before Blake called. We were able to talk to Blake for about 1.5 hours. It was wonderful to hear his voice. He did his door approach for us, what a treat! I could listen to him speak French all day. He really wanted to speak English though so we tried not to ask too much. All I wanted for Christmas was to talk to him and it was even better than I had imagined. After talking to him we went to my Grandma & Grandpa Ellsworth's house for breakfast and the grandchildren gift exchange. The whole family was there and it was an emotional morning. Christmas was not the same without my grandparents and Kyle. We then went to my Grandma&Grandpa Olsen's house. We had dinner and exchanged gifts. It was a very enjoyable holiday. We are so happy to be so close to our family!
