I read about this website where you can back up your blog (for FREE) and if you use your blog as your "journal" you can actually have it published in book form so you can have it has a journal!! How great is that?!?!

My little sister, Kourtney, is getting married in just a few weeks! (YEAH!) This is the dress that Sasha and my niece Emma will be wearing. I took a few pictures of her in it today while we were waiting for Mark to come home from his church meetings! I didn't know it was possible to love something so much! I am so thankful that she is part of my life.

I was teasing Mark the other day about how he can't curl down his bottom lip! I don't know why he can't do it (I shouldn't say anything - I can only wink with one eye....) But I sometimes make this face at Sasha and she laughs... I think it makes me look NASTY. Note to self: Don't ever do that face in public!!!!

We lost a beloved apostle. He sure will be missed, and what a great service he did while on the earth. I sure loved listening to him during conference. He was one of my favorites! From Lds.org:
"Elder Joseph B. Wirthlin of the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles has passed away at the age of 91. See the Newsroom for the latest official information."

Yesterday was so fun! We met some of our friends (Sonia, Jason, and baby Korban) at the Gilbert Days parade! Sasha is such a big girl - she sat front-facing in her stroller and played with her cow toy (thanks MOM!! :) You can't really see it in the picture because it is hanging in her lay - but she loves it!!
Sasha and Korban! Isn't he adorable!?
This is Sonia! Sonia, Mark, and I all went to highschool together. Mark and Sonia were close friends because they were both in choir, but I didn't reall become close with her until college when I was in the architecture program and she was doing interior design!
Where can I get one of these?

It was the store number of Inkley's when my dad was the manager.
I was the 17th student (by last name) in my 3rd grade class, when we were required to turn our work in by number order. Which I found out I was 17th in 5th, and 6th grade also...coincidence? I think NOT! :)
My birthday is the 17th.
"1776" is one of the funniest musicals I have ever seen.
17 is the natural number following 16 and preceding 18.
17 is the 7th prime number.
17 is the sum of the first 4 primes.
17 is a mild swear word in Swedish. It can roughly be translated to "Darn!". It is of course also used for the number 17.
17 is the number of Arizona Diamondbacks pitcher Brandon Webb.
In the Harry Potter universe, 17 is the coming of age for wizards.
"Seventeen" was the original name of The Beatles song "I Saw Her Standing There"..
The atomic number of chlorine.
Year 17 A.D. was a common year starting on Friday of the Julian calendar....I like Fridays!!

Sasha was awake for about 15 minutes before she started getting tired...

So I used to have this eye twitch....a REALLY BAD eye twitch. It got so bad I thought I might have it for the rest of my life. Just kidding. Well, the optometrist said it was stress induced - and to take a bubble bath! WHAT!?!? Well, it went away earlier this year after we moved into our new house. I actually didn't have it the entire time I was pregnant nor did I have it after Sasha was born....but it came back last week....
The same time I went back to work.....
Any good recommendations on bubble bath?!?

Sasha was so great when we were traveling to Utah to go to the airport! She smiled and cooed for a while before she totally zonked out!
I aspire to be as buff as my brother, Korth. We constantly joke back and forth about who could "take the other out". I had a lot of fun hanging out with him. I didn't get to see much of him the last time I was in Idaho, so it was fun spending some more time with him.
My sister-in-law, Autumn, had a nice little visitor this last weekend! Her friend Josh drove down from Washington to spend a few days with her. He just got back from his mission! He seems very nice!
Joey is just a ham. As soon as brought out the camera he would start smiling!!

I finally downloaded the pictures that my mom had taken while I was in Idaho - and I thought this one was hilarious. Joey (my soon-to-be new brother) sure loves Sasha. He called me today and wanted to webcam. He was so excited! "Hi baby Sasha!!" "Why isn't baby Sasha talking?" "Hello? Baby Sasha??"
