September 24th- We started off Saturday in a super fun way. We went to Lexi's new ballet class and then to Trafalga in Lehi. We had a blast. Then I realized I had lost my phone. I went home to look for it and my car wouldn't start. The kids were super cranky because they thought the ten minute nap on the ride home was their nap for the day. Oh, how frustrating and I was supposed to meet Jer at the graveyard to help pick a gravestone for Rex.

September 21st- The funeral went really well and so did the burial. All the kids spoke. The kids almost dropped the casket on the way up the hill. It looked so heavy. Luckily a few extra guys jumped in and helped before it tipped over. Jer was convinced his dad would have thought that hilarious.
"My name is Rex, but my mamma always called me Slick"

Uncle Phil and Aunt Trish said thier own prayer over the casket.
September 20th- We worked hard all week getting pictures together for some Rex collages, video, displays. I think the displays turned out beautiful.

Now it is Lexi's turn at the dentist. She had a full exam with X-rays and a cleaning. She has great teeth, no cavities, and loved getting the flouride painted on her teeth. We told her it was pink, so she thought she had pink teeth all day.
September 17th, 2011- So as the family gathered to go over funeral plans and grieve together, the kids got to see their cousins and have a good time. Amber came up from California.

Grandma couldn't resist playing with all these cute little girls.
It turns out Lexi loves little Amber and is nicer to her then her own sister, can we really be suprised about that? I swear Lexi and Amber look like sisters and Cali and Lily look like sisters. Lexi and Lily do not share much resemblance.
