We're missing Sofia. We sent her to Florida with Grandma and Grandpa Hardie to represent our family at Great-Grandma Hardie's funeral. The house has had less fighting and screaming, but we really miss her. She's been gone almost 5 days now!! She even lost ANOTHER tooth while she's been gone. Today she's in Disney World and having the time of her life!! We just imagine her walking around in her princess dress-up meeting all the princesses. We can't wait to hug her tomorrow.
We're missing our dear friend Ali. We met the Van Giesons about a year ago when they moved into our ward. What a fun family! The Mom, Ali, was killed in a terrible car accident on Saturday morning while driving with her parents and 3 kids to a family reunion in SLC Utah. Her dad was also killed. She leaves a husband alone to raise young kids, ages 5, 3, and 1. We're so sorry for this tragic loss. Our friendship with this family was still new, but we will greatly miss Ali. I'll miss chatting while the girls have their ballet class. I'll miss sitting next to her on temple Saturday or taking our turn babysitting 25 kids with them. I'll miss running into her at the grocery store near both our homes. Ali was such a sweet person and patient mom. She was the kind of person that could bring calm to a crazy situation (i.e. babysitting the 25 kids!!) and I'll miss that serenity. We wish only the best for her family and since they were sealed in the temple know that they will be reunited again when this life is over. XOXO
