Brantley continues to cook and bake wonderful things all the time. For this cake, he made his own fondant and it was much better than the store bought fondant. His creativity just never ceases to amaze me!

On September 27th, we took Cara to the Seattle Temple to have her sealed to our family for time and all eternity. It was a wonderful sunny day and Cara did so well with the ceremony. Our friends Elizabeth Berninger and Jodi Mecham came along and helped out, and Elizabeth took the pictures. Everything went just beautifully. It feels so good to have her be ours forever!
Cara was a little unsure about kindergarten at first, but now she totally loves school! She can't wait to get there in the morning, and doesn't want to come home in the afternoon. I'm so grateful to her teachers for making it a wonderful experience for her. Here she is waiting on the stairs at home to get her shoes on to leave for school. Notice the huge smile?
When we took Cara to Walgreens to have passport pictures taken for her U.S. Citizenship paperwork, she was having none of it at all. No way was she going to cooperate. So the person who was trying to take her picture suggested we take her home, lay her down on a white background, and take a picture or two. Then he would crop them for us we'd be all set. And it actually worked! Once we got her home she perked right up and thought it was all a big game. Here are the adorable pictures we ended up with!
Yet another child in the double digits. Ashlyn was the baby until Cara came home, and I can't believe she's this old! She's a wonderful girl and we feel so blessed to have her in our family. She had a fun birthday with friends and family and Costco cupcakes. Happy Birthday sweetie!
