Me and My Little Sis

Briana came to visit at the beginning of the month. She wanted to meet Baby Evy and to have a little away time from LA while her hubby studied hard, and we're all so glad she came. I had to take a picture of the first time she outweighed me (she's 8 months pregnant). Ha ha, Bri. I have to enjoy it while it lasts.

We had a good time at Temple Square. I've never seen the Christmas decorations during the day, and it was lovely. It was especially nice to just be able to walk up to the Christus without any lines. Kate was fascinated by the statue.

We also made some very lovely but very disgusting cupcakes. Yikes. They were awful.

Bri was only 1 when I left for college. Accepting that she is a married, pregnant grown-up has been a little mind-bending, because it means that I have to accept that I am no longer 20. It's true, I'm not. I know that's a shocker. However, she is a lovely, kind, funny adult, so I guess it's kind of a win-win. Oh, except the feeling old part.

Thanks for coming to visit, sister. I look forward to many more visits, with baby in tow. We might even make some edible treats.

I loved your CHRISTMAS IS COMING post. I just love traditions. You know, I was thinking about it the other day (as I think about so many things in this little head-o-mine) and wondered why Christmas brings so many traditions as opposed to other holidays. All of our "Family Traditions" are based around Christmas. Hmmm...Maybe I'll work on Easter Traditions and St. Patrick's Day traditions, too. Maybe I'll do a whole post about that....:)

Hard to believe she's married and going to be a Mom. She's beautiful though.
