This is my simple photo journal. I like to take pictures and once a month or more, I load them onto this blog so that we can remember some of our family highlights.



We got a visit from the newlyweds Corey and Bridgette (youngest sister). 
 They surprised my mom on April Fools Day....and they got her good! 
 Out of 7 siblings, only the three oldest live here....and my brother and sister both live in Queen Creek (so we don't see them near enough).  Adam is in New Mexico, Aryn  in Idaho, Chad and Bridgette both in Utah.  So it is a big deal when family comes to visit.  
I do hold out hope that everyone will eventually end up here ...
and we'll live within "drop by and visit" distance from one another.
I  love being surrounded by Tom's family.  After we got married,
it was such a bonus to find out that I had joined
 such a great family.  I feel like I hit the jackpot.
General Conference, this past weekend, made me think a lot about
 the importance of our families and how grateful I am for all of them.

(Side note:  I am making a picture rule.  No more faces like that, Isaac.)
