I'm very sorry for the duplicate slideshows. I've tried to fix it 3 times now and it still hasn't worked. I give up. Sorry!

Jake Getting sworn in

So Jake was finally sworn into the navy last friday. We started the process of applying for the program over a year ago and all our efforts finally paid off! We dressed Elle in a little sailor dress for the occasion. Jake's awesome parents drove down from Pocatello to be there and his grandparents were able to come as well. We all went out to dinner afterward and then his parents drove right back. It's so wonderful to have such supportive inlaws.
So Jake won't have to do anything for the military until he graduates. But he's classified as enlisted right now, so they are paying us. I feel so blessed. Because he is able to do this, I am able to stay home and care for our beautiful little girl. I know I will probably be cursing the military when I am separated from the man I love, but right now, I am so grateful.

I know I haven't made a post in a very long time. So sorry about that!
Elle was blessed on March 2nd by her papa. It was such a beautiful blessing. I am so grateful to have the priesthood in my home. We had a lot of family in town. My dad, grandma Crosby and sister Carmel all came out from CA. And since Elle was blessed the same day as my cousin Summer's son Beckham, her family were able to be there as well. It was so great that Beckham and Elle were able to share that special day. Pictures will follow soon. I'm waiting to get them from my MIL.

In other news, Jake is hopefully going to be sworn into the Navy this friday. We are waiting for the go ahead from the navy board. Keep your fingers crossed!
