Berlyn has some more bling

So yesterday Sam FINALLY talked me into getting Berlyn's ears pierced! And she did SO good, i dont know what i was so nervous about! It was really funny, when i took her in she was getting cranky, mostly because it was her nap time... So i took her in and she was bawling her eyes out, as the girl prepped her ears she just kept on crying! As soon as she pierced her ears, Berlyns stopped crying! It was so funny! I think the prick was just enough to startle her but not enough to hurt her! I wish i could show some pics, but when i took my camera there, i realized i left my memory card at home, so Sam still took pics but they are on the main camera memory, and i cant find the connector cord to plug it into the computer!! BAH! Ill find it soon, and the pics will be up!

My mom kept asking me for pics of her pierced ears, so i would take a pic on my phone of the side of her face, with her ear, and she couldnt figure out why i didnt take any straight on! Well ill tell you why... Her cheeks are too chubby to see them from a straight on view! Poor little chubba bubba!

Alright...Im off to find that cord!!!

Aunt Kori!

I know it has been quite a while since this happened now, but i am just getting around to blogging about it!

I just want to say thank you to my mom for coming up as soon as Berlyn was born to help me get the hang of things and cleaning and making dinner and for coming up again to watch her for the first week i was back to work!

i also need to thank my lovely sister Kori and my mother-in-law Janet for watching Berlyn for the thirty days i had to go back to work!

I know it wasnt the easiest thing for you all, that it didnt fit in your planned schedules im sure! But thank you so much! I seriously couldnt have done it without you! I love you all! And Bee loves you both too! Muchas Gracias!!!

Sometimes we fish...Sometimes we find family

Dustin and Berlyn taking a nap...i LOVE this picture so much!

A few weekends ago now, we went down to Torrey Utah, our usual Utah vacation spot for fishing and hunting and such, to go ice fishing, and to find my great-great grandma!

A little bit of a back story...i found out just a little bit before this that my great-grandma actually used to live in the EXACT same town we have been visiting for so many years! Which is pretty awesome and quite a coincidence, considering Torrey's total population is maybe 100 people, and the whole county of Wayne has a population of 2000...thats 1 person per sq mile! and thats on a good day! SO before we went down i did a bunch of quick family history and found out that she lived in about 4 little towns down there with her mom (my great-great-grandma) and HER mom too..great great great! whooo thats great! Turns out it was the first place they lived when they moved here from Scotland! I never got the chance to meet my great great grandma maggie...but she sure sounded like a lot of fun to say the least! She married a man down there, named John Busenbark and they had a bunch of kids, and lived there happily until she passed away.

Anyways, i searched it up a bit, and found out where she was buried! And it is like 5 miles away from my in laws house down there! Crazy! I feel so much closer to this place now, knowing i have such a strong family connection to it! Its awesome to know i am going around visiting and seeing the same farms, lakes, rivers, mountains, trails etc., as my great grandma did when she was not much younger than me! It is so cool! I am hopeing to maybe find some blood relatives that might still be down there! Maybe they know more stories about my family! That would be so exciting! i cant even stand it!

Dustins family has been visiting there since like 1930 and my family lived there since 1900! If you knew how small this place is, you would think it was pretty dang awesome too that its connected! Anyways, here are some pics from the trip!

Berlyn sleeping on the way there! (she has a milk beard)

She had a baby that only lived a month :( born the same year as my grandma, who i never got the chance to meet, Margaretmy great grandma's brother WilliamHer sister VirginiaMy great great grandma maggie and her husband John Busenbark! So many flowers means someone is still there who loves them! Which means, i am going to find them, and have even more family! Wooo!!LOOK! A couple of Bald Eagles! faaaancy!Turkey Lurkeys!i caught this MONSTERIt was freezing and he was slimy and really hard to hold! (i let him go by the way)
