Catching a glimpse

I was perusing some Facebook photos, and came across these pictures of my sisters that had been taken (courtesy of Tim Przybyla) at a church Halloween party.

Jenna and her ladybug costume:
(Oh... and the beautiful temple in the background is where Doug and I got married!)

Carissa is the one on the left. (Yeah... the one NOT in costume. Tsk tsk...)

I'm startled to see how much she's changed since I last saw her 5 months ago. She looks older... and different... it reminds me of how I felt when I came back home after my first semester of college and found that my brother Ryan had grown several inches and was considerably taller than me.

It makes me miss my family.
Less than two months until Christmas... and we're planning on spending Christmas in Fresno, so I'll see them then!

Jenna will be turning 8 in less than a month. I want so badly to be there for her baptism... but there's no way I could be there with school and travel expenses.

My little sister is growing up without me... and I can only catch glimpses through pictures.

*Update... I will be there for her baptism! She's willing to wait a while until we come to Fresno! Happy day!
