It has been an exhausting week but it was all worth it. We left the Spokane Tournament on a commanding win and we headed for Utah. Such a long drive. We arrived late Monday evening and we were so excited to see the kids. We also got to meet some of Stacie's family. We met Emily and Grant. Grant was just as awesome as I had expected. It was great hearing about his Obama sightings. Made me all warm and fuzzy.
It was Brent's birthday and Carolyn had made a delicious cake to celebrate. Happy birthday Brent.

Tuesday morning we got to meet the rest of the Haws family. What a great family.

We spent Tues. morning at the temple helping Kevin and Stacie with their pictures. Stacie was just beautiful and Kevin looked so handsome in his tux. It was so hot though and I thought we would all melt. We had a nice dinner at Chilli's to celebrate Grant's birthday. Happy Birthday Grant.

Wednesday morning was just beautiful. It was wonderful to see family and friends in the sealing room. I got to meet Kevin's mission president and his wife and that made me shed some tears as I hugged sister Webster and thanked her for taking such great care of my boy while he was in Brazil. Stacie looked just radiant as she entered the sealing room hand in hand with Kevin. He couldn't stop smiling. The temple sealer was great and he was even funny. He gave them some wonderful advice and then we watched as they were sealed together. Much love filled the room.

Me and My girl. I love you bug!

Scott and his boys.

This is my new family. It just keeps growing and growing. I am so happy that we have added two to our family in the last six months. No longer the Jackson five.....we are the Jackson seven....a force to be reckoned with.

I love you too Mom! I'm so happy to be a part of the Jackson SEVEN. And I loved that day. It was definitely the best day of my life. Hooray!

Love the wedding pictures. Wish we could have been there.
Glad you survived the wedding even if you didn't survive Lewistown.
Kevin and Stacie have a wedding present at Tylers apt. If they want to pick it up it might be faster than waiting for Tyler to deliver!!
