There are "only" 70 kids (or so) in our Senior Primary. They are a fun bunch!

We are obsessed with turtles at our house. Tayler loves turtles, so we adopted turtles as Ellie's signature item. I used to think turtles were hard to find, but now I see them everywhere! Ellie loves to chew on this turtle book - it is soft and has crinkly stuff in it, which is a match made in heaven. We are practicing sitting up, and flexible E was so focused on chewing that she slid right down.

Ilene's Ellie and my Ellie are destined to be best friends. They are almost the same height and weight - but Ilene's Ellie is 9 months older...
P.S. Book Club is the best! And Erin was able to come for an hour. It was so great to see her and get the updates on Camden! More on that tomorrow...it's late.

We got an exciting package in the mail today from our friends Angie and Shaun. They moved to Texas almost two years ago, and since Angie knows we are Cowboys fans in this house, she sent this cute outfit for Ellie. How nice was that! I don't know if you can tell in this picture, but the blocking around the words "Cowboys Rule" is in pink.

The last 2 days I have been organizing and cataloging the last two months worth of pictures. I only picked up 797 this time (but a couple hundred of those are for Tayler, so it is not as bad as it seems!). I always go through and put them in date order, and then put the best in the photo albums. I filled up one and half of the big brown albums, and the green album is full of just pictures from the Christmas trip. It feels good to be caught up again.

Tonight Ellie and I met Gwen and Judy for dinner in the Cougar Eat. I knew I would be parking across the street and walking in, so I brought out this stroller that Jonette gave us for its maiden voyage. Ellie loved it! (P.S. The blanket was made by Jonette as well, and the outfit was a present from Tayler.)

Joanna told me that today, their neighbor Hailey came over to see Ellie, and Ellie cried at the stranger. She never cries for Jo anymore (but there were a couple of rougher weeks). Jo said that it made her really happy to know that Ellie is so comfortable with them.
I was holding Ellie when I got there, and Jacob peeked over my right shoulder, and Ellie smiled at him, and then he peeked over my left shoulder, and then he went back and forth. Ellie giggled, and her eyes were so bright and she had such a look of wonderment on her face as she tried to figure out what Jacob would do next.
We love Aunt Jo!

P.S. My sister Robyn just came by to meet Ellie, and I forgot to take any pictures! That should have been the picture of the day...

When we moved to Bozeman, we inherited his grandma's bedroom furniture, which came with a full-sized bed, a dresser, and a vanity. We still have the dresser.
Then we bought a queen-sized bed and have slept on it ever since. Greg decided to surprise me and bought a king-sized bed (mattress and a headboard/footboard) for Christmas. We finally upgraded to a "real" bed, and it only took us 15 and half years. Can't wait to try it out tonight. It is huge!

...and I just wanted to be playing with Ellie. Ah, well. I am usually only gone from her for 6 hours, one day a week. And she has a great time playing with Rachel, Todd, Brayden, Leonard, Clayton, Jace, Cassie, and Tylan. Ellie loves all of the attention!

And Ellie looked super cute in an outfit that Tayler gave her.

Thanks to my friend Amy/Emily, I am the newest member of the Lehi Library Board, and tonight was my first meeting. Amy encouraged me to take an impromptu picture! I am excited for this new volunteer opportunity. With meetings for one hour a month, it is a small time commitment, and yet I know I am serving the community. (Is that laying it on thick or what?)
And here is Ellie with her favorite babysitter - Hailey.
