"I Feel Really Clean!"

Riley was baptized Feb. 5th. This was a special day for our family. We love Riley so much and I know he was hoping to feel a little better that day, unfortunately he woke up feeling a little exhausted from a bad night's sleep, and with a bit of a fever. But everything else turned out really good. We were very grateful for the family that was able to make it and even to those who were on their way but had to turn around and head home because of sick kids. It's always nice to spend time with family and I know the kids really enjoyed having their cousins there.

I am grateful to know of the blessings that come from being a member of the church and I can't wait for Riley to experience some of those things. We love you Riley and are proud of your decision!!

The newest member of the church...you can tell he's not feeling great :(

Thinking about what she wants to wish for...

Really attractive Emilee...

Emilee turned 12 on Feb. 3rd. It's hard for me to believe I have a daughter going into Young Women's. What's even more surprising, is how she is completely her own person. I've noticed the last little while that she seems to be pretty confident in who she is, and she has a great sense of humor. I also know that she can be grumpy when she doesn't get what she wants, but she always does what needs to be done. She is doing well in school, has great friends, helps out around the house without being asked and is always up and at 'em without someone nudging her along. I love that Emilee is responsible and makes good decisions. We are grateful for Emilee and for her example...and from these pictures taken, you'll see what I mean about her humor.

Happy Birthday Emilee!!
