I love this picture of Hayes looking at his mommy! He loves her and shows it.

I have had fun here in sunny Clovis. Becky is doing well with baby #4, and the three older kids love him. Jason has a new job and we went to his office the other day. I am trying to figure out how to add more pictures when I do a post... it is hard to have to keep going back and adding more and I want everyone to see a group on one post.

Today has been a good day for me. I have been getting rid of piles of papers, and
organizing what is left. I took time to make the handout for the lesson on Sunday on
Service. It is fun to learn these things!! If anyone wants to copy them, feel free.
They are jpg files so should be easy to copy.

YW handouts

I am having more fun with my digital scrapbooking things! I am practicing by making these handouts for the YW class I teach. It is fun to be able to learn and do new things! The bottom picture may be familiar to Wade and Jessica. Guess where it was taken?

Prayer and Meditation Handout

I've been working on my lesson for Sunday and came up with this for a handout. Walgreens has a special again, so I got them printed on a good deal -- 10 cents each. If anyone wants to use it, go ahead!

OOPS! Red eyes

I did not do any edits on the pictures I added, so if you zoom in on them, you will see lovely red eyes on my grandchildren! I was ina hurry to get them here, so will work on them more. If anyone really likes one, and wants to use it, let me know and I'll get the red eyes out first.
Grandpa and Sam eating at McDonald's! We loved going to Walmart in Maryland. It was lunchtime so of course we had to get Sam lunch! YUM

Kecia's Birthday

Michael, Kecia, and family came over on Friday for a BBQ to celebrate Kecia's birthday on Sunday. It took FOREVER for me to get this picture... The kids were really being silly and refusing to smile, or even look at me,but I managed to get this one!

Rachel and Will drove from Montana, arriving Friday evening. We have had a good time with them. Stephen took this of us today. It is kind of a goofy picture, but it is a picture anyway!

David's family

David and Stacy gave us a great gift for Tim's birthday in April -- airfare to go back and see them! We were able to be there when Joshua (by Stacy) turned 12. He was ordained to the office of a deacon. It was a very special day. Madison just turned 14. She is holding Emily. I have had a hard time uploading other pictures for some reason, but will keep trying!

Making Cookies with Grandma

Posted by PicasaMichael and Kecia attended a funeral last Saturday, June 6. They brought the kids over and we had a lot of fun playing Old Maid, hide and go seek inside, and watching a movie. We also made chocolate chip cookies!! They had fun stirring. Note in the last picture, Cade is sitting on the counter. London assigned Cole to be the bowl-holder! The cookies were delicious!

Inspiring Quote

Many of you know my friend Barbara is dealing with a very strange and painful disease, which has caused her to lose feeling in her hands and both feet. She has had it for 6 months and keeps getting worse, yet her attitude is great. She keeps trying to do things and succeeds, even though it takes a lot of time and effort. She made pumpkin bread which was delicious but took her a very long time, since she has little control of her hands and fingers, so drops things. Our RS newsletter had a quote this month that Barbara liked and wanted to cut out, so I decided to see if I could doctor it up a bit. I had a lot of fun with some of the things I have learned with the photoshop elements classes I have taken, and hope to keep taking! Here is what I did. I love the message!!!

TKC Family

Well, looky here!! This is before Stephen was born, but I wanted you all to see the Chandler 5! This was taken when we lived in our little house on Brockman Rd., when Tim was the bishop. If you can guess who each child is, you get a prize!! I am not sure when it was taken, but Jessica was born in 1978. I can't tell if she was a year or not here??? any guesses?

By the way, I was just uploading pictures from Becky and Chandler's visit here a couple of months ago, and Tim and my visit to see David's family last month, and none got imported from the CD I had made for some reason. Now I am too tired to try again, so will add more tomorrow.

Rachel left us a message while we were gone today. She said that she caught a fish! yay for her on her first try!... We went to a picnic on a tree farm in Sweet Home today. Some people we work with at the temple have this large farm, hay ride, picnic area, etc. It was a lot of fun! One of the couples we work with at the temple actually went fishing at 4 a.m. before the picnic!! The wife was exhausted and neither caught anything! We had a lot of fun out there in Sweet Home today. It was sunny, too, and we have sunburn!

Michael, Kecia and kids came over. It was a beautiful day, so we spent time on the deck. Michael's kids are quite the climbers! He told them how he and his siblings used to climb up the siding to get to the roof!! London and Cade did it and then Cole tried, but needed his daddy's help. I hope you can see all the pictures. Maybe this collage has too many on it. Let me know what you all think!

I am learning more about Picassa's features which are great, by the way. This is my first attempt at a collage. I hope that you can zoom in and see them better. Hayley is now 6 1/2. She found the rock in the garden and it has "sparklies" in it and so she thinks it came from a volcano! Danika turned 5 the day before these pictures were taken and she was very excited to hold up 5 fingers!

Let's take a vote on the hat!!!!!!!
