Our Missionary

The best part of Christmas Day was talking to our missionary via Skype!  Isn't technology amazing!

Christmas Eve 2012

We celebrated Christmas Eve the same as always, surrounded by family and friends.  This year we went Mexican in honor of Thomas.

Sugar Cookies

I decided it would be a fun holiday activity to make and decorate sugar cookies with the family, which we did.
But the real reason I wanted to make them (don't tell anyone) is that I am a little addicted to sugar cookies.

Thomas and his companion found this white horse in the middle of the street and had a little adventure trying to find out who it belonged to.

Breakfast with Kirk And Kim

What an amazing breakfast!  Todd and I ate with Kim and Kirk Duncan this morning.  It was a privilege we received by bringing the most people to their free Body Language Show in Boise.  We love these two.  They have totally changed our lives and brought us up to the next level.  I would have to write a very long blog post here to explain.  But you all know that most of my blog posts are pictures with a few words.  I would still love to tell you all about it.  Just ask me (or Todd) anytime.

A missionary apartment in Mexico.  I don't even know what to say here but I'm sure you all can imagine the thoughts going through a mother's head.

Baby Blessing

We headed over to Dakota's baby blessing.  No trip down the highway would be complete without a stop at A&W for Chili Cheese Fries.  It's a family tradition.
A family Picture.

Thomas arrived safely in Mexico.  He is struggling a little . . . new culture, new food, new missionary, and his companion doesn't speak any English.

Many small miracles happened to make this special day occur. 

We are so proud of you, Niko, for choosing to get baptized!

A New Granddaughter

She's here!  Let me introduce you to my new, beautiful granddaughter, Dakota Jane.  I love her already.
This is where I find my amazing daughter just a few days after giving birth . . . sitting on her bed doing homework and holding her 2 babies.  She even has cute bling on!
And this picture is because I just love this little girl too.  And she makes me smile.
