Erika and Tyler are Engaged

Erika became engaged to Tyler Pickens of Gooding, Idaho on March 28th. Tyler visited our family over the Christmas holiday. It was fun getting to know him and showing him around our neck of the woods. They plan to be married in the temple in Twin Falls, Idaho in August. We are very happy for both of them!

Jacob turns 1

Happy Birthday, Jacob!
Here he is in his new backyard in Colorado last fall,
talking to us on the webcam with Kara,

and for his one-year portrait. Such a handsome guy!

Julia and Andrea

Andrea gathered together some pictures of Julia and herself, and made a slideshow for her ipod with a cute song. Here are some of the pictures of the two fun sisters.

Julia will be in college this fall!

(Andrea and Julia--Behind them is our little wall of high school graduates)

Julia has been accepted to BYU-Idaho. She will be there in the Fall--along with James who returns in April.

Julia has chosen to major in Interior Design. She has applied to that department, and is still waiting to see if she hs a spot in that major this year.

The Envelope, Please

Daniel received his mission call today, and read it to us tonight. (The letter actually arrived here last Thursday, but we resisted opening it, and sent it to him to open.) Our family was gathered on our web cam and conference calling, and he had 11 friends in his apartment when he opened and read his letter from the prophet and President of the church--giving him the time and place that he will serve for the next two years.

Las Vegas, Nevada Mission (which covers parts of Nevada, Arizona and California) --Spanish-speaking. Yay! Daniel. You will be a fantastic missionary! He reports to the Mission Training Center in Provo Utah (about a mile from where he is now a student at BYU) on June 2, 2010.
