I had a good time trying to recreate this photo I took of Margaret when she was small. It is fun to notice the differences. Margaret is on the left and Eliza on the right.

Margaret Looking at Her Journal

Every day for the past 5 months or so she asks to hear about when she was a baby. I don't mind telling her. I start out by saying, " Oh when you were a baby you were so beautiful..." and go on from there. I would often tell her the "tender mercy" story about how she was almost going to have surgery to fix her tear ducts. But then her eyes cleared up and she didn't have to have the surgery after all. I think she likes that I like that I like that story.

Paper Hat

John has been doing a little origami, folding paper hats and paper airplanes and tons of other stuff with paper. It is so fun!

Growing Girl

 Eliza is a dear heart. Instead of skin and bones she is filling out and much more alert. She smiled a huge smile at John and made a cute little sound that almost sounded like a hi. Her hair gets the same fun reaction from every single person that sees her. It makes her stand out that is for sure. She sleeps some, cries on occasion, and eats every now and then. In short a beautiful baby that we all love to have around.

New House

 We are so excited to be here! It is a beautiful area to live in and we have some space to do some fun things in the future. Unpacking is slow in comparison to how fast I unpacked other times. I feel the house is far from being put together. But it is all such a big blessing. The dear Lord gives us much and Kelly and I intend on using it for good!

Fifth House

Pocatello was a wonderful place. I am so glad I could be and live there. We had the best landlord ever. We had great neighbors and a great ward. It was so fun to be a part of the residency. I loved the variety of hikes that we could go on. I also loved that most homes had a view. There is so much to love about Pocatello and I am glad that I have learned to love it!

  I love to hear Margaret say "Oh, cute yawning!" whenever she sees Eliza yawn. She also is so darling when Eliza gets the hiccups saying "Oh, it's hard to have the hiccups." But the thing that gets me the most is when she gets excited because "She touched me!"

 We had a black cat, firefighter with a broken arm, and a cute little lady bug. Eliza was pumpkin but we didn't get a picture. We celebrated by going to the elementary carnival and trunk or treating with the ward. All went well. I feel like I had the best time because I passed out the candy.
