Newest Member of the Soderstrom Family

Abigail Anne Johnson is officially here! Can I just say how much I love being an Aunt? I think it is one of the best things ever! I was lucky enough to get to spend a few days with miss Abigail and my sister Carrie although I think that I was more of a hinder than a help, but I sure enjoyed being there! Also it was a great learning experience because I was able to ask all sorts of questions to Carrie. I must be really attached because I am already missing her like crazy! Here are some pictures of the babe!

Aaron and Sarah's Wedding

On November 5th my brother got married! I thankfully was able to travel down to Texas to be there for the wedding. They had it at the Marriott, and it turned out beautiful! They had the actual wedding outside, and the venue was gorgeous! And then the dinner/reception was inside. It was right next to a lake and they timed it just right so the sun was setting during the ceremony. It was wonderful to see family and add a new member to ours! Funny wedding memories...on the day of the wedding Amy, TJ, Aaron, kids and I were down at the pool. Aaron said that we needed to be dressed and ready by 5:30 so we were all just relaxing and playing in the in pool. I headed up to get in the shower at 3:45...and just as I am getting out at 4:00 everyone else comes into our room. Aaron received a text from Sarah saying everyone needed to be ready by 4:45! That is not an easy feet with 4 others needing to use one bathroom! So it was a mad rush to get ready, but thankfully we made it! The second story...the flowers were not my friend...I was the one distributing them to the wedding party and they kept breaking on me! But all in all the wedding was small, very personal and just like Aaron and Sarah! Here are some of my favorite shots from the wedding!

Halloween Crafts

I have been such a slacker but for good reasons! Here is the Halloween craft from this year...I had SO much fun doing this with Valeena and Tina! There is a story behind these ones, Valeena had a picture of them and we just loved we all pooled our resources and were able to make them for about $5.00!

And here is the pumpkin of the year! I had a nice Halloween party by myself, but thankfully had plenty of trick-or-treaters and was able to chat with my sisters while they passed out candy too :)
