Still waiting for the twins

Our daughter Amber should deliver her twin boys at any minute. We are so excited to be able to hold them.

Amber is more than ready to deliver two baby boys, they are a good size.

I took these photos last Sunday, I was trying to get a good picture of how huge Amber's tummy really is, she says she is doing fine.

This view is taken from upstairs at the railing above the family room. I was still trying to get a good picture of Amber being very pregnant.

Today is day off, I love being able to sleep when normal people do and I feel so much better!

The brace on Mark's foot is from an injury he got on our spring vacation while hiking. He just finally went to the foot doctor a couple of weeks ago.

Nancy's Summer Party

NOT REALLY.....a secret was about to be revealed!

Nancy and Victor bought beautiful new patio furniture.

It is nicer patio furniture than we've ever had.

Mark and I drove to Twin Falls on June 6th after I had finished working at the Post Office (I start work at 12:30am)

We arrived early so I could help Nancy prepare for the big party.

I helped Nancy make these strawberry ladybugs. I was suppposed to ask "Why do they have pacifers in their mouths?" But, I didn't...

Brief visit with Nicole in June

We got to see Nicole for an hour on June 7th!

My daughter Nancy playing with the girls Nicole and Chloe in my mom's racoon fountain.

We all played lawn games in the yard with Nicole.

And then Nicole played the piano and sang to us.

We loved being with Nicole, so is so sweet!

Pictures of my granddaughter Nicole

Well, not exactly new, but I just downloaded them from my camera.

These pictures were taken March 28th at my mother's home in Salt Lake City.

I loved being able to see Jason and Nicole when I went to Salt Lake City.

I miss getting to spend time with them in Salt Lake City.

Weekend at home

After working 10 hours and getting off work at 10:30am on Saturday, I did a few errands. The siding repair on our home began yesterday, and they were finishing up the new siding installation on the south side of our home today. Mark and I started out to ride out bikes to the Edwards Theatre on the other side of town. However, we ran out of time, and my friend Patty came and picked me up to go to the movie "The Proposal". We chained up my bike. Mark rode his bike back the 5 miles to our house, and then went to pick up my bike. We tried to get him to go to the movie with us, but he didn't want to. Patty and I enjoyed the movie. Then we went to dinner at the Sizzler with Keith and Patty Christensen (our scuba friends). And the last thing we did is go and buy our movie tickets for the opening day of the new Harry Potter movie. It was amazing today that I didn't nod off, I've been up for almost 24 hours now.
