Jess is 13!!!

Jess is such a special girl!  She is always the first one to help with  anything!  She is very considerate of all of those around her.  She is so much fun to be with!  And so much help!  We love you Jess


My dudes crack me UP!!!!!  We had to go out of sacrament meeting for a little while.  When returning I told them to be reverent and fold their arms.  They led the way back to the front of the chapel.  I looked up to the stand and saw Dave and the Bishop chuckling.  I wasn't sure why until they walked past our bench.  I sat down and called them and they turned around - apparently they walked up with arms folded and eyes closed.  HAHA 

Utah in the Summer of 2010

I love this pictue.  I think it is one of my all time favorites!  Dad and Faith looking at the Temple!  I love seeing my Dad with his arm around her telling her stories.  I am so grateful for my parents and all that they do for all of us!  I know without question I can count on them for anything!  I love they way they have embraced my husband and all of my siblings spouses as part of the family!  They love them every bit as much as the love us!  I have thought a lot about that lately - as my kids get older and I think of them getting married someday!  I hope I can be like them!  I am so grateful to have parents that taught me what is right and taught me how to make good decisions!  Love you Mom and Dad!

Art for Animals

Faith had artwork selected for the local Animal Shelter fundraiser.  We are proud of this girl!  She and all of my kids are amazing artists.  Thanks Grandma R. for passing on this talent.  (although I don't like the fact that it skipped a generation!  Just kidding - I love art too!  Just not as good at it!)  This picture is taken at the awards dinner.  Very fun!  Always nice to have some individual time with the kidos!
