Another catch up

Welcome baby Jorgen. This is my brother Jake's new baby. It is their 4th and the 9th grandchild.
He was born on the 23 at 1:11 PM
and was 7lbs. 5 oz and 20.5 in. long. He is such a cutie.

We have had a visitor since last Thursday. Her name is Lu-lu, She is a basset hound-weenier mix. She is very cute but this has made us realize that we are not ready for a dog. It has been fun but we are looking forward to Sunday when our friends come and get her.

McKenna is all over the place and has started to stand on her own in the middle of a room. It is very exciting but also sad, my baby is almost 11months old. The time flies by. She is blowing kisses, says; thank you, hi, bye, ma-ma, pa-pa, da-da, and she has just started saying excuse me.She says lots more and is learning more everyday. She plays peek-a-boo, she loves the dog, and eating or putting the food on her head.
Carson is still just as crazy as ever. If I put a head band on McKenna he wants on one him, I think it is funny Cameron... not so much. We are still working on potty training, he is finally starting to tell me that he need to go 'poopoo'. Before he didn't really seem to get it so this is exciting. We will see how the next couple of weeks go.

Cameron and I start school on the 10th and we are excited and not so excited about it. Cameron got a job at a shop and is still working at speedy, as well as running his business. He is busy but enjoys working on cars.

The love of our Father.

Last night we got a phone call telling us that Cameron's cousin past away. He had been sick for a long time and they just found out that it was cancer, he started chemo but he was to sick for it to work. His name is Jason and he is 15 years old. They have 2 children who are on missions now and one who just received his call last week. All in South America. I believe that they have 6 children.
I laid in bed last night thinking how terrible it would be to lose a child, I can't even imaging how Mary his mother was feeling.
I am so grateful for the knowledge that I have knowing that families are eternal and even though Jason is gone from his family now they will be able to see him again. He is free from his pain and with those who love him and his family who have already passed on.
I love my children and my husband and I am thankful that they are mine for eternity and that Heavenly Father trusts me with them.
I am sorry that this is a bit depressing but I just felt that I should share my feelings.
