Pictures

So, if you're anything like me, it's easy to fall into the trap of taking a million pictures, you blog a few...maybe put a few up on facebook...but mostly, they just sit on your computer.

Well, I finally did it!  I printed off some of those pictures.  And here is my picture collage (although I think I'm still gonna tweak a few parts of it).
Prints from mpix.com
Frames from walmart and pictures & more (off the 13 if you're in Missouri)
and vinyl from my cousin (check out her etsy store here!)

General Conference pictures

Okay, blogging is a little overdue. But life has been a little crazy around here. Some of you may know that I found out I was pregnant. And some of you may also know that I miscarried that pregnancy. But we are doing just fine. And there has been so many people that have been so kind to us through this ordeal. To those of you that have served us this past week- THANK YOU! You inspire us and I want to be more service oriented like you :) But anyways, we're doing good and we have complete trust in the Lord's will and timing...and hopefully we'll stay true to form and get pregnant again quickly...but this time with everything healthy :)

Anyways, this isn't what I was going to blog about. I was actually going to post our "general conference pictures". First weekend of April was general conference where we hear from the prophet and apostles and other leaders in the church. It was amazing! I always go into conference with questions that I'd like to have answered and without fail, the speakers talked on those exact subjects that I had questions about! What a tender mercy from the Lord! I love general conference and the spirit that it invites in our home and how it always inspires me to be a better person.

Okay, back to my original subject. Our new tradition is to take family pictures Sunday afternoon following general conference. Kinda a fun way to document how we are changing every six months. Nothing fancy. Nothing formal. But us nonetheless.
