Grandma Dee

It's always fun when Grandma comes--hurray!

We've loved having family come visit the last little while. These are delayed pictures, but here are some shots with Grandma Dee Jones and the kiddos.

Status update: MJ

MJ is becoming so responsive and interactive. She's quick to smile, especially at her siblings. We're so lucky to have her in our family.


I came across this picture from several years ago (thanks Kyra) and I've really enjoyed seeing it again. First of all, it reminds me that I was once skinny and that gives me hope that I will be again. Secondly, it was taken just after when C & I got engaged, and that is a fun time to remember.
Here's to being grateful for "good times," may they be now and then.

Oh, and p.s., I think it's interesting that even when we are skinny, we don't feel it. Maybe if I recognized that I was skinny, fit, beautiful, etc. I would stop needing "perspective experiences" that help me learn by experience that I really was.

It's been thirteen years!

Can you believe it's been this long Em?
Thirteen years ago (on September 2, 1998) I entered the MTC to prepare to go to Romania. What a life-changing event.
