Matching shirts for our family reunion.
Mikaela's was born a few weeks early determined to meet the world. She struggled a little bit with breathing, but soon she figured it out. Born the day before Daddy's birthday - it was a special day that will be with us forever!
After spending a week in two hospitals, we were able to bring little Mikaela home.

At just a few months old, Mikaela showed us her love of music. Daddy and Mikaela's first piano duet!
Famiily and friends at Mikaela's blessing. It was a special day. Her blessing dress was made from part of Ana's wedding dress. Ana is saving parts of her dress for each future child's blessing outfit.
Here we are at the Salt Lake City Temple for Mikaela's sealing day. A day among many that we will never forget.

Myan is loved very much by our 2nd cousins. They were watching the movie, Ice Age, when I surprised them with the camera and caught a perfect moment!

My first craft fair booth! Stressful - but a good experience. Not sure I will do it again - but I will never stop sewing!
One of Mikaela's favorite accessories - Bandaids!
