old photos.

My cousin David has been scanning old slides into the computer -
here is a classic shot that I think is great!

Arave Girls (my mom and her sisters)
Ilene, Marie, Christine, Valine (my mom), (my aunt Joan is missing).

My mom thinks this might have been taken the day she got married.
Idaho Falls Temple - December 15, 1978.

PS- I know you all really want to see pictures of our new niece Jean...but NO one has seen a photo yet...Tiff said she has lots of dark hair, squinty new baby eyes and a double chin, we still want to see a photo or two!

My sister recommended the following books for some pre baby reading (I better get reading). Are there any other good books you recommend?

I am sure many of you have seen this - I wanted to post it for everyone to see.

Just last week my sister Tiffany and I where having a discussion about creativity in our lives, using it in our callings, and as mothers.

I feel validated by what Elder Uchtdorf says. Enjoy!

pack 'n play.

We need your help again!
What pack'n play to you like or dislike? Why? (what features are good/bad)

I know lots of people are very happy with the Graco brand,
but has anyone tired the Chicco one?

We are in Park City for the next couple of weeks 'babysitting'

My parents are in Israel with several other friends - so we are the official babysitters! Here is a picture with us and our 'kids' (minus McKay) several years ago when we babysat them over our first wedding anniversary. They liked the wedding cake!

We hope everyone is having a fun, safe time in Israel.
