This past Wednesday I traveled to Utah to see my cousin Camille's wedding. It was a long car trip but it was fun to see family members that I haven't seen in years. Chris and the kids stayed home, so I always felt there was something missing. I had a lot of fun doing girl stuff with my sisters and my cousins. Reconnecting with family is always nice. The temple and the weather was beautiful. I would have liked to have more time to contact some friends and other family members out there but there wasn't any time. If we weren't doing wedding things we were celebrating birthdays. I am so thankful that Chris let me go and was willing to watch the kiddos for me. I'm a lucky girl I think! :D Thanks Toni for letting me come raid your house and see your cute son! I hope you continue to feel well and I can't wait to see baby #2! Gotta go now and spend some time with the people I missed the most while I was away. Later my people!

My brother Ethan and his wife Brandy had their little baby girl when Brandy was only 24 weeks along. She is very tiny and having a lot of issues as of late, but she is a fighter! My sister put this little video together from last Saturday night when they went down to see her because she wasn't doing well. Ethan and Brandy you are in our prayers and we love you!

Yesterday, I was in my own little world sitting on the couch. The next thing I know, I look over towards the front door and there is Sawyer with this "angry man" face getting ready to snipe me with his Lego gun. Chris and I laughed for a long time. Then Aiden joined in the fun as they pretended to shoot each other and "die." Boys are SO funny :)
Chris got an interesting calling on Sunday. They asked him to serve a one-year service mission in the ward helping the deaf group and learning ASL so he could translate. He will have to attend classes on Tuesday evenings and learn as much as he can. We have a large deaf population in the stake and our ward was designated to be the meeting place for them. We even have families that come all the way from Fort Collins. Anyway, we were both surprised but we are both excited and I know that Chris will learn fast and do his best. He is still the Cubmaster for now but since it is a Tuesday night calling they will be finding a replacement before the classes start. Just wanted to share with you all! Have a great day and hope you are all well.

We are so excited to tell everyone that Aiden lost his first tooth this morning! Olivia and Cole beat him to the punch, but he wasn't far behind. He only told Chris and I about his wiggly tooth a few days ago. Then he woke me this morning to tell me he had yanked it out himself. Is it just me, or are these kids growing up really fast?! Just wanted to let you all know what exciting things were happening in our house.
Chris and I are also speaking at a YM/YW fireside tomorrow night (Sunday) on the topic of missionary work. We are looking forward to getting to know the youth better. Hope everyone is doing well. Love you all and talk to you again soon!

Yes it's been a while...
April finds us well. Chris is the Cubmaster at church, and Heather just started working with the Young Women in the ward (girls ages 12-13). Caylee was just baptized a few weeks ago, and we had a wonderful Easter holiday with lots of food, fun and family. Aiden is doing well in school and already reading and writing well. Sawyer is three and loving to get into everything! He is my climber, my discoverer of the candy hiding places, and also my biggest helper at home when the older two kids are still at school. Chris is still working with MCR (Medical Center of the Rockies) as a System Administrator. Heather does her best to make the household run smoothly. Yeah that's a laugh, but hey, she is up for the challenge :)
As always you can see our newest pictures through the link to the left. Hope you are all doing well and hopefully it won't be 5 months before the next post! Take care!

It was a Happy Halloween at the Snell home this month! Grandma Rue and Granddad came to visit and we went to the pumpkin patch. The left picture is of the kids right before they picked out their pumpkins.
On Halloween, Caylee dressed up as Hermione Granger from the Harry Potter book and movie series, Aiden was Darth Vader (yep, three years in row, do you think he likes Star Wars?), and Sawyer was my chicken man. It was pretty funny. He did NOT want his costume on and I think he was afraid of it. I never struggled so hard to get a little one dressed! I gave up on him going trick-or-treating because I never thought he would wear it again. Much to my surprise, as soon as he realized he could get candy if he put it on, he wouldn't even let me HELP him put it on. He had so much fun that he kept trick-or-treating to me even after he got home. It was a fun night. Dad went out with the kids and Mom stayed home and watched a scary movie and passed out candy. I hope you all had a fun Halloween :D
Until next time...and I posted the pumpkin patch pictures and Halloween pictures on my picture link to the left. Later!
