My sister Heidi had her baby just 5 days after the reunion, whew! Suzette Kathryn Carpenter arrived August 17, 2016, 6 lbs 15 oz and healthy as can be! Heidi had her all natural and recovered like a champ.
That same day, August 22, Krystal and Kollin had their arrival of Kaizlee Joy, 6 lbs 10 oz. Krystal had to have a c section and also recovered from that like a champ. She was up and coming to Travis' birthday party 5 days later! Congratulations Williams! Also an interesting note is Kaizlee was born on Lillians death day so we feel there is a connection between them.
Sky had a growth spurt and we think is fully grown now, a little over 6 months old. He doesn't like fetch so much, but he loves tug of war and keep away, and he thinks he can chew anything he can get his teeth on so we have to "dog proof" the house. He adds a fun energy to our family so we don't mind keeping him! He is having his neuter surgery as I write this, so he won't be the hyper teenage pup he has been lately.
Travis Carpenter turned 7 so we had a party at AAG and the little newborn cousins were there and oh so cute! They are my parents 21s and 22 grandchildren.
On a sad note, my grandma Rappleye age 95 suffered a stroke and has been in the hospital now for over a week. She recovered fairly quickly for her age and is in the rehab center at UVRMC until she gains full function of her muscles again and can do stairs. I have been humbled to see my sweet grandma laid up, she still tries to laugh, and has such a loving spirit still. I love how my cousins and siblings have been to visit her and love her so much. My parents took this video of Grandma when she regained mobility of her left arm, she was so excited.
Jared took Sky, Weston and Austin Snow on a camp out in the mountains last weekend for an adventure in his Ranger. They had a nice male bonding time fishing, riding, and getting stung by wasps. Weston liked all of it except the wasps. Jared said Weston was having a coniption fit about the wasps, and they kept teilling him "They aren't going to hurt you." And not 5 minutes later Austin started screaming and hitting his arm because a wasp had climped into his shirt and stung his arm. HAHAHA. So they left that spot.
That same weekend Savanna went with Jesse/kelsy/Mom/Dad to Lagoon, & Fiora went to a back to school party with her friends. I stayed home and worked, ho hum, but don't feel too bad, I still have fond memories of my fun time in Cabo holding me over.
