We called her FeFe growing up. Isn't she gorgeous?! This little family couldn't produce a bad picture...even if they tried! It was freezing, snowing and blowing the whole time. Then, right after they left - the sky was blue and the wind...gone. lovely!

A breath of fresh air.

Well, i'm still trying to unpack everything and I have felt like i'm "Skipping Christmas" (or "Christmas with the Kranks" if you have never read the book version), no Christmas tree, no lights, no decorations, no Christmas music. Amidst the depressing state (although happy that we are in our first home!!) a breath of fresh air appeared when Josh Groban's CD that Deidra sent me last year fell out of a box. Who would have known the difference that CD made to my day, and unpacking. Thanks Deid. The gift made my day and helped me get in the Christmas mood.

Graduation & Moving on.

The banquet is put on by the Alumni Office, where I worked for the last couple years. We owe a big shout-out to Jeremy for getting us the best seats in the house!! (thanks're the bomb.) We were only a couple feet from President & Sister Uchtdorf, and President & Sister Clark.

The commencement services were just great! It is such a blessing to hear from the Brethren and be enlightened by their messages.

Graduation presented a neat opportunity! Thanks to our family who came up to support Donny! I think we were all edified and uplifted by the wonderful messages shared. We feel so blessed to have attended BYU-Idaho.

The day after graduation...

A HUGE thanks to everyone who helped us pack and unpack! And thanks dad for the free moving truck!

Too easy...

This little one smiles on demand! I couldn't believe her! Isn't she a doll?

The Jardine's were some of our first friends when we were married 2 1/2 years ago. We've remained good friends and we are sad to leave :(

Little Princess

Every time I am around this little sweetheart, I cannot believe how charming she is.
Even though she didn't love the camera...the camera loved her. Watch out mom and dad...she's going to be a knock out!

p.s. we also had our first snowfall

It's a Girl!

Nicole and I have way too much fun together. I think she is seriously the funniest person I know.

I get so much fulfillment from "making my own." This edition of homemade goodness, was quite exciting. A book! It was a lot of fun as well! As soon as I found out Gena knew how to make books I jumped on the opportunity to learn. I literally started from scratch...tore the paper, cut the board, sewed it get the point. If you ever have the opportunity, you should make one too!
