Sorry to hear about your grandma passing Russ. Lacey, I love the blog and all the pics of the family. I get the blog on a feed whenever you post but I think this is the first comment I've left. Halle is adorable!

PS...
Lacey so funny Russ is not interested in doing dance classes because last night Mike and I were talking about who we thought out of our friends who do this and we thought you and Russ would for sure. Russ is a great dancer, as are you, I'm surprised he is so against it. Maybe someday my friend!

I loved Grandma Page. I remember going to her house when I was little. She was such a fun lady, full of life and vibrance. I loved hearing more stories at her funeral and seeing your cute Halle!
