My Close Family...... I LOVE EM'!

Now the Hatch Family has left the building.... :( Their little family plus Ashley left around 9ish this morning to go on their long journey back to Indiana. Even though it is hard to say goodbye, we had some very fun times while they were here. We had tons of family parties, boating every weekend, Gpa Earls encounter with "dying" ( He had a mild heart attack) A Dorius/Tyler Party, Going to the pool, Gpa Earl and Roe's Wedding, Sleepover with Joshie and Megan and The Allen Boys, Going to the Gateway and seeing movies, Finding out that Megan and Josh are having TWINS!!!, Me babysitting, Plus, doing Alyson's nails and makeup. Whenever her mommy would leave the house, she would immediately start to cry and the first idea I would say was, "Aly, do you want to do your nails?" And she ALWAYS said yes!! I loved it! They are the cutest family and the best cousins and Aunt and Uncle anyone could ask for! I feel so lucky to have an extended family that is so close to each other! Sometimes when you feel "down" you usually go to your parents but I know I can ask an older cousin or even a close aunt to uncle (preferably someone who plays "C.O.D" if you know what I mean ;) ) and I feel so blessed to have that kind of relationship with my family! So I guess even though the Hatch Family is gone, (Plus Ash :) ) We are still so close that it will feel like they never left! :)


  1. You do have a great family. Hopefully you will see Manda, Brett and the kids again soon. Maybe a trip to Indiana? I must be old and out of the loop, though, because I do not know the term COD. Oh, well...have a great week.
  2. We packed a lot of things into a short amount of time... WOW!! Maybe I should pull the "too much fun" rule and stop planning so many fun things... ha ha ;)

    I am very grateful for my brothers and sisters. I am lucky to have them. You and your brothers are really lucky too. They all love you guys, more than you will ever realize.
    I love that you and Josh have such a great time together. He is one of the kindest people on the earth - so is his wife.
    I love you Kenzie!! You helped out a lot while Manda was here - babysitting and helping with the kiddos. Thanks!!
  3. You are a GREAT girl, McKenzie! I bet your aunt Amanda loved your help. This has been such a year of ups and downs for your family.

    Yesterday, Susan B and I went to your Grandma's grave and sat for an hour and talked under an umbrella. It was so nice.
    Is C.O.D. -cash on delivery??? I don't know either.
  4. You were a big help while Manda was here. We do have a great family and we sure do a lot of fun things together. You can always count on us if you need anything. We love ya.
  5. I was so sad to leave, and now that I am home, I want to come back:( I miss you guys already. Thank you for tending the kiddies and doing Aly's make-up and nails. She loved it.
    You are so sweet. We just love you. Can't wait til next summer!!!

The Hatch Family has arrived! Amanda, Brett, Jane, Tobe, and Alyson have made it here to Utah! They came on Wednesday, the 24th , and the party began. Even though Brett had to cut his visit short with some business needed to take care of at home, we will still party without him. Sorry Brett.... Some things we are thinking about doing while having them here is boating, (A LOT) Jungle Jyms, bowling, parties, sleepovers, and swimming! So I will keep you updated on those things when we do them! :) Until then, have a great day. (That was way cheesy)


  1. Have a great time! Enjoy the holiday weekend. Love, Alyssa and the family
