Sorry about the hiatus, but we've had a rough few days! First off, on Friday our adopted family in Cedar, the Montoyas (Pat Meegan's mom) let us know that Bubs (or Julie) was on Homecoming royalty at Canyon View High school! Well we couldn't miss out on seeing Bubs in an evening gown (which she looked gorgeous in by the way!) so we went to the football game and cheered her on while she drove around the track in the back of a truck (They were going to have a helicopter land on the field and drop them off, but it didn't work out. Can you believe that?!). Bubs had the whole Miss America wave down, although I think she was being a little mocking, which sounds more like Bubs than a beauty queen. Anyway, she's the beaming beauty to the left of the pirate in the pic above. My camera was acting up so that was the best shot I got. It was also Brighton's first football game so we had to document that with her daddy as you'll notice above.
Then, after the game we brought Brighton home and to bed, but she woke up at 11:00pm which was out of character and she was burning up. We gave her medicine and she slept throught thenight, but the next morning she had a temp of 104 so we started doing everything we could think of bring it down, but to no avail. She was miserable all day and just wanted to be held, wanted her blanket, or wanted to sleep all day long. Sunday wasn't much better. By the evening time her temp peaked at 105. We were frantic. So we called Kyle's brother who has been through medical school and he diagnosed it to be Rosiola. He said that we just needed to get the fever down in any way and that she should be getting a rash all over her body. We finally got the fever down and sure enough, she got a rash. She's doing much better now and the only sign of the sickness is the rash (which is not contagious anymore! whew!). She seems to be our bright little Brighton again which is a relief for us! So anyway, this weekend we had a little homecoming and a little drama, but thankfully they weren't in the same category!

Just a quick post before bed! Two weekends ago when the Meegs were visiting, Little B was loving giving little A kisses! She thought it was hilarious when Alli's hair would tickle her face! I guess she's not used to having that much hair so she thought it was great! Anyway, I couldn't resist posting these pics even if they didn't do the moment justice!

Then we headed up to Ogden for a few days to visit our friends the Meegans (who we've seen since then, but I thought I'd give the play-by-play basically for my benefit). We had an awesome time because we hadn't seen them for over a year and desperately missed them. So Kyle and Pat did some climbing while Clarissa and I hung out with the kids and talked and talked for hours. It never fails when we get together, we never run out of things to say and I love it! So we had a blast there and Clarissa even took us to the Children's museum in their town which was amazing as you can see. Anyway we had a ton of fun with them and love the fact that we live closer to them!
Oh and we even got to see our friends Paul and Michelle Ottley and meet their little girl Abby who's 3 months younger than Brighton but much bigger! It was fun to see them because we haven't seen them in forever either!
Okay so after that, we finally moved down to Cedar City where we currently reside! A few days after we arrived we had a little family get-together with some of Kyle's siblings so it was a lot of fun to have Casey, Tyler, Annie, Joe, and Landon at our house! We went hiking and saw the sights of Cedar (which we weren't familiar with yet!).
All-in-all it was a really fun and busy few weeks and now we are settling in to school and life again and wanted to thank everyone who made our transition here so easy and say thanks to everyone who visited us or who we visited because we had a blast! whew! Long blog! Sorry!
