They're Home!

Mom and Dad have returned from serving Humanitarian Mission for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. They served for 19 months in the DR Congo. We are so proud of them!The kids worked hard making a "Welcome Home" sign.
Who would get to be the first to hug them?????

Everyone got plenty of hugs!

Grandma's first look at her name-sake.

Nobody gives hugs like Grandpa!

We all love you!

Happy Birthday Eve

Eve had a really fun "Bake-Off Birthday". All of the girls decorated bakers hats and aprons and had fun pretending they were real chefs.

The girls showed off their culinary skills making homeade pizza, decorating cupcakes, and testing their noses as they tried to guess the spices in our spice game. (You could really tell which girl's helped their parents cook...they had no problem identifying the spice.)
Eve, we love you! You are the sunshine in our family. We're so proud of you for all you've learned this last year. You've learned to read, play the cello, do the dishes (you do them so well that I don't have to go back and do them again), you are always kind to everyone, quick to smile and quick to laugh. You are not afraid to stand up for what is right. You do not give up easily when something is hard. You are always looking for ways to do good. We love you!
