My step-sister is getting ready to have a baby girl. She has 2 boys that are excellent athletes. I did my homework to find out what their favorite teams are. Silly question - the cowboys and the rangers. I was so happy to find rangers fabric and tried to feminize it with red stars on the front. We can't wait to meet you, Brooklyn. We hope you enjoy your blanket.

Carlie is called to serve in the Halifax Nova Scotia Mission including the setting of Anne (with an e) of Green Gables and a portion of Maine. I love her so much. I am so pleased with her testimony. Hearing it inspires me. Next time we take this sibling picture, we are shooting for Mt. Fuji 2012.
Pretty cool, eh? I am looking forward to celebrating Canadian Thanksgiving and other international holidays, hearing about Carlie's conversion to Canada and all Canadian escapades and possible coo-coo companions and miracles. Missions are all about miracles because you're doing the work of God.
Happy entering the MTC day, Sue. We love you. I am so proud of you. I want to serve a mission with this guy as my companion. Isn't that awesome that he is my companion? Love it. Definitely not coo-coo. I'm the coo-coo companion in this companionship. Yikes. Thanks for handling it, dear.

Straight from Lulu's mouth. Why don't I hang out with her more often? She is a CONSTANT source of humor. Get this girl a mic and a spot on late night television.
Driving in the car at 11 pm after I had just woken her up from her bed so she could ride with me to my house. I'm talking to Johnny and Lulu about how fun our sleepover is going to be. First thing she says to me in the car.
Lulu: Wuss yo dad's name?
Johnny and Lulu are playing house. There are some discrepancies about who is the mommy, who is the daddy, and who is the dog. Lulu tries to make peace with Johnny.
Lulu: I love you, son.
Disclaimer* Lulu did not provide the following quote although it is right in line with her humor.
Christine: Hey, cute kid. You shouldn't do that. Your mom just asked you not to do that and here is why you shouldn't be doing that. (I thought I was helping another mother out by enforcing her expectations and giving logic to the child about the reasons why he was expected to comply)
Cute kid: Oh, no. I can do whatever I want.
Christine: Why's that?
Cute kid: Because we don't have a deal. If you make a deal, then you don't do it. But if you don't have a deal then I look at the kid and say, "Do I want to hit him?"
