We arrived in Gunnison and it was a very tough time for the family. We had so much to do before his funeral service on that Saturday the 22nd, so we had to put everyone to work and try to get things together. It was tough, but it was a little nice to have things to keep us busy. There was so much love and support from the community and church members towards the family. The family was super grateful for all that everyone did for us. At a time of hardship, we were watched over and taken care of.
Before we knew it Saturday arrived and we had to say our last goodbyes. I am grateful that he doesn't have to live every day in constant pain, but it is still so hard to have to say goodbye, especially to someone who still had so much to live for. He really was so amazing for Heavenly Father to have needed him this badly. The one thing that's so comforting is to know that he is in a better place and that we will all be able to see him again. The service was beautiful. There were some amazing talks given. Presten and Kristin both gave such great and heart touching talks. Here are the pics from the funeral.
Kristin had mom open her gift first. She gave mom the gift that she had made for dad.
It was a beautiful book, and a hard moment for us all. It was definitely a hard and emotional day for all of us.
Next, Josh gave the boys their gifts....
They opened up their gifts and Josh had got the boys Broncos jersey's....AND tickets for them to go see the Broncos game the next day! How awesome was that?!
Look at those grins!
So their seats were 5 rows from the field. They got SPOILED!
The boys got pictures taken with the broncos cheerleaders. The blonde is actually my friend Tristan Dear. Her and I grew up together and have danced together for years! I was so happy to see that they got to see her! It was the coolest thing!
The boys had a blast and had all sorts of stories to share when they got home! I'm sure they are forever grateful to Josh for the amazing surprise and such a wonderful day for them to spend together! For it being a hard month it was wonderful to be able to spend time with family and enjoy the holiday together!
Presten's awesome Christmas drawing on cardboard. He's so pro lol
Jordan! He's such a ham! too cute!
Pretty soon Christmas Day Came. Santa had come to visit and brought us all some super fun things!
Josh and Kristin had a BIG surprise to share with everyone Christmas Morning!
They are expecting baby #3 in June! 2 months before me! 2 sweet babies coming into our family! How exciting is that?!
Presten and I got sleds for everyone so we could all go sledding together! We did, and it was a BLAST!!!!!!!
Jordan was all tuckered out!
Have I mentioned how much I LOVE Christmas Lights?!
After Christmas I decided to tell Presten the news I had been keeping a secret for 2 weeks. I didn't do anything extravagant, just told him in the car ha I didn't have time to come up with something, and after the ups and downs we experienced this Christmas, I felt like a simple precious moment between the two of us was what we needed ha He was very excited, and we are both looking forward to what the future holds in store for us and this sweet baby on it's way.
