One a Day: September 2017

Splitting wood for our winter fires

Installing a new microwave

One of my best friends from high school!

More wood splitting

Love that face!

Evening walk -- I love that this view is less than ten minutes from my house.


36 weeks



Lillian and her roommates came for dinner

Grandma and Grandpa were here for Family Home Evening

Katie is so excited to be taking piano lessons for the first time.

These two are such good friends.

I love fall!

Sarah helped me set up for the preschool pictures I took the next few days

And Cami helped me test out my lights (pajama day at school)

Welcome Baby #11, Gideon Maxwell!

Gideon Maxwell

born on Tuesday, 10/10, at 11:03 a.m.  

Seven pounds, twelve ounces, and 19.5 inches of perfection.

If anyone needs me, here's what I'll be doing for the next three months!  I don't want to miss a single moment.  :)

One a Day: August 2017

Senior pictures with my neice

I fell down the stairs, landed hard on a twisted foot and got a huge baseball-size bruise.  I couldn't walk the first day, hobbled the second, but by the end of a week, I felt great again.  Such a blessing, because I thought I might have broken it! 

Day One of Family Vacation:  Exploring the City of Rocks National Monument in Idaho.

Day 2:  Floating the Boise River (Benji and I went to the zoo instead)

Day 3:  The oldest five and my husband floated the Payette River.  The younger ones wished they could have gone, but the rafting tour we chose was for twelve and up.

Day 4:  McCall, Idaho.  We stayed in a little cabin near the lake and rented a jet ski for the afternoon.

Day 5:  Canoeing

Day 6:  Day hike

Beautiful Payette Lake

Heading home

Harmony wanted a picture with her eyes all dilated; we took her to an eye doctor to check on her occasional lazy eye.  He says it is not anything to worry about.

First Day of School for our High School students

First Day for the elementary (Kindergarten started two weeks later)

First Day for the Middle Schoolers

Provo MTC tour

Playing dolls with his sister Cami

Leading the music for Family Home Evening

We drove to Idaho for the total eclipse.  Stunning experience.

Best friends

These three accompanied my husband on nearly all his runs this summer.  Here they are, gearing up for his 20-miler!

A feast prepared for Lillian's last day at home.

Moving into the dorms

Best friends!
