Last Wednesday morning, we received the sad news that Landon's Great Grandmother, Lucy Wilkes, had passed away. While it was not unexpected (she was 96!), it was somber news. Grandma Wilkes was a firecracker! I have always felt so blessed to be part of Landon's family - none of my grandparents were still living when Walt was born, and Landon has such a large extended family full of great examples for all of us to look up to! We will cherish this 5 generation photo taken in 2012:
I was probably more jealous about this than anything else:
I also felt bad because, except for Walter and I, the entire Burgener Family was gathered.
Meanwhile, in Seattle, Walt and I were trying to live it up. :) Well, you know, the best way a largely pregnant woman and an (almost) 3-year-old know how...attending ward parties, egg hunts, and hanging out with our friends! (Have I mentioned enough times how grateful I am for my friends here??)
Landon got back late Monday night and we are SO happy to have him home. We're grateful for the knowledge that families are forever and happy that Landon could spend this time with his.
