Taylor Swift

Months ago it was announced that Taylor Swift was coming to San Diego. Emerson loves Taylor (because of her Emerson has taken up guitar lessons) and she of coarse wanted to go to the concert! So, I made her pay for half the ticket and her and 4 of her best friends made plans to go to the concert.
The day came and it was finally time. They got together to coordinate their outfits and make a banner in hopes that Taylor Swift would see them.

It was seriously the loudest concert I have ever been to. The arena was packed with little girls screaming and jumping with excitement. I like Taylor Swift too but I wasn't expecting a spectacular concert but I was pleasantly surprised. It was a great concert and best of all Emerson had the greatest time. She said it was her "best day ever, so far"!

Marcus Farewell

Marcus finally went on his mission. After 6 weeks of buying shoes, shirts pants, passports, immunizations, dentist appoint, doctor's appointment and packing, it was time to go!!! On October 12th, Marcus reported to the Provo Missionary Training Center. He will be there until December and then he will fly to Madagascar to serve his mission.

Even though he didn't want one, we had a farewell party for him. His parents and sister Michelle flew down to be with him his last week here and sent him off.

It was bitter-sweet. We knew and felt it was time but it was hard to say goodbye for 2 years. Bye Marcus, I hope you will grow to love giant spiders, no electricity and eclectic foods. Word of advice...don't ask what you are eating. Just smile, say thank you and swallow it like a good little missionary!
