Boise Crafts

While I was up in Boise I had a number of crafts to work on. Thanks to the monumental help of my mother and sister, my projects were completed.

These blocks will go above the girls' beds.

These are our new Christmas stockings. I give the credit of the making of these stockings to my sister and mother, who did almost all of the work. Didn't they do a great job?! We can't wait to hang them up this Christmas. The stocking on the end without a name is for our next child...this is NOT an announcement! We aren't pregnant. I just figure we probably will have another child, so might as well make a stocking while we were at it.

Comin' back west

Paul and I traveled back West this summer for Paul's internship. The girls were wonderful on the trip and we have enjoyed our time with family. After spending a few weeks in Utah, the girls and I went up to Boise for four weeks to see my family. I got a lot of craft projects done, thanks to my mom and sisters for their help! We are now back in Utah and having fun. Aubrey loves to go swimming with her daddy!

Birthday girl and boy!

We celebrated Paul and Aubrey's birthday together. Aubrey was old enough to start enjoying presents!

We had a great time celebrating the 4th of July in Boise. We started by going to the Boise parade in the morning. We went to my neice's baptism, then back to my sister's house where Aubrey had fun playing in the kiddie pool with her dad! He bounced her along the side of the pool and played with her all afternoon. After we got Aubrey dried and in clean clothes, she snuck and jumped right back into the pool. My sister spent the afternoon painting face paint is a butterfly.

Baby Blessing

On the 4th of July weekend, 8 of us 9 siblings were together in Boise, Idaho where my neice was baptized and my brother blessed his baby. My sisters and I were all together for the first time in a long time and we had so much fun together. Aubrey loved playing with all her cousins.
