I'm baaak...

after a looong hiatus - I'm back!!!
now let's see how consistent I can be.
A LOT has happened this past year which you may or may not know from reading our kids' blogs. Desirae had a baby boy, Ian, on November 18, Ian shares a birthday with his cousin Caleb who is two years older. Pip had a baby girl, Lilly, on February 18, she shares a birthday with Nana. Both moms and babies are great! I hope I don't get busted for this, but Calvin and Carol will have a new baby ~the end of February (shhh just in case i am not supposed to tell).
Calvin & Carol took some of his Northview H. S. students to Paris, Barcelona, & Madrid in April and Jim and I were privileged to go with them - we had a great time and Jim took plenty of pictures if you have an hour sometime!
I played nanny while Desirae and Stephen went to Rebecca's wedding in Salt Lake -my sister, Dawn and her husband, Greg were up there for Mica and her husband, Mike's graduations from BYU so I spent a little time with them.
We did our annual beach camping in Carlsbad in June with my parents - I look forward to that "vacation" all year.
Jim and I got new callings this summer -He was called to be the Young Men's President and i am teaching Gospel Doctrine - pray for me!
