Welcome Home Elder B!

Tom is home from his mission to Wisconsin! Last Saturday night we met up at the park for pizza after the plane touched down. Tom got to meet M, O, and Kjerstin for the first time, and Chris for the second.

All it took was seeing this face:

. . . to know that Tom hasn't changed much. Here are some more pics of the festivities and attendees:

The picnic was nice because they had all the tents set up for the Memorial Day breakfast the next Monday, so we could use all the tables. It was so much fun, and we are glad to have Tom home again!

Let's Play a Game. . .

OUR APARTMENT (sorry, no pic)

Any ideas? Okay, here it is:

They are all located between our house and the greater Salt Lake area, and

(this one's my favorite)

they are all places where we have been asked for money by random people. Sad part? We almost always cave. We'd like to think that if we really needed money that strangers would help us out. Not that we would probably ever ask people for money, even if we did need it. I think it really comes down to the fact that we hate confrontation.

What do you do when people ask you for money??

Home Sweet Home

We finally have some pictures of our new house! We are getting so excited to move in. Hopefully our loan will close by the end of the month, but it has been taking longer than expected because of new FHA rules and whatnot. Here's the front:
We will have to put the yard in by ourselves, but luckily Chris is up to the task. This is the kitchen and hallway to the laundry room(!!!) and garage(!!!):Here is the family room looking from the kitchen:
And here is a view of the back from the other street. (We are on a corner lot.)Like I said, we are SUPER ready to get moved in, so don't be surprised if we are calling you in the next couple of weeks. . .

New Tricks

M's up to her old tricks (mostly just being dang cute), and she's added a couple of new ones lately.

First trick: Sitting in the Bumbo! She doesn't have the best control yet, but it's coming along.
Second trick: Eating her hands, mostly just the left one.
