Great Day

Yesterday was a great day. A day we won't forget. Josh's sister, Hayley, was married in the Salt Lake Temple. Annabelle and Hayley have always had a special bond. I believe it started when Hayley came to stay with us for a week one summer when Annabelle was almost 1 year old. Ever since then, Annabelle has absolutely adored Hayley. So you can imagine how upset Annabelle was when she found out she wouldn't be able to go to Hayley's wedding because she had to be inpatient for chemo. When I first told her she was so sad, but she is so amazing she quickly became alright with it.

The day started off by getting to have Layla come spend a few hours with us while everyone was at the temple. Grandma and Grandpa, Ashley and Derek, and Hayley and Ricky also surprised us by coming by before the wedding. Ashley took pictures of Annabelle with the bride and groom and I can't wait to see them! Annabelle loved it and felt so special.

Here is Annabelle in her dress she got for the wedding. She just couldn't bring herself to smile though!

It was great to have my Layla babe for a while. I miss her so much! After the wedding, Josh picked Layla up and took her to the dinner and then back to Tremonton. Later that night, after all the partying was finished up, Hayley and Ricky came back by the hospital. They brought us cupcakes from the dinner and pennies for Annabelle to make wishes with. We met them out front and headed over to the wishing pond.

Asking Annabelle what her wish was. I love Annabelle's face in this one!
The happy couple and a happy little girl!
Thank you Hayley and Ricky for making Annabelle feel special and not left out of your big day. I love you guys and can't thank you enough for being so good to Annabelle!
