Yesterday my darling little niece turned 1! She had a big birthday bash at Aunt Val's. Here she is with Dani and Tate, don't they look so cute in their celebratory hats!!
I wish I was there. I miss living by my family a lot. Sometimes I am jealous when I see sisters who live near each other and cousins who get to be best friends and grandmas who have their perfect grandchildren over all the time.
Well, maybe someday we'll live closer together. For now I will just have to be grateful for the times we do get to spend together. (like this next Christmas~ I am already planning and I think all my brothers and sisters and their families and my mom and dad will all be in Utah together!!!We haven't done that in I don't know how many Christmas' ~ over a decade +. Sad. )
