No pictures...sorry just boring old words (I left my camera in Spokane). This past weekend we went to a Aaron's Grandma's funeral (Grandma Lila), who died of old age and a few other things. She was a wonderful beloved woman. It was such a pleasure to get to know grandma for the past 7 years. We had the opportunity to live close to them when in Pullman (they lived about 30 min. from there). Grandma Lila was so spirited and such a funny, independent, speak-her-mind kind of woman. Although I knew her for a few short 7 years, she was a wonderful wife, mother, grandmother, mentor, example, and beautiful woman, not to mention very talented!! We will miss her greatly but we are SO glad she gets to live with Heavenly Father now and she is not in any more pain!

Happy (late) Father's day to all the wonderful Fathers out there! We had a good one of going to church and then eating YUMMY calzones with some friends! We love you Fathers, especially Aaron, my own dad, and father-in law, and the positive rolls you play in our lives and in the lives of our kids. Can I be more like you guys when I grow up?

On another note...I am 32 weeks along and HUGE. I Technically have 8 weeks left, but since Syd and Wes were both 3 weeks early I am hoping this happens again I might have 5 weeks (here's hoping). I am feeling good, just nothing fits me and it's hard for me to move around, bend down etc. We thought of a name...FINALLY, I will let you all know, maybe I'll do a survey! ADIOS!

Okay, I'm a goofball. I thought you where naming him Adios. 'Cause it was right after you said you figured out a name. I though, "Oh... that's... interesting..." Then I realized that it was spanish for goodbye. Yes, I can read!

I am glad that you usually go early,pregnancy wise. I always call that time off for good behavior.
On the name survey I voted for Landon but Eric said he liked Ely. But alas you can only vote once. Is that any indication on how the naming of our baby is going.
Have a wonderful day!

I really like Ely and Landon. What did you guys pick!

Ely pronounced like Eli, as in Eli Manning? If pronounced Ellie, I was going to leave an insensitive comment about you having a little boy, not a little girl.
