Picnic In The Park

Last Sunday we took advantage of the unusually warm weather. After church we went to the city park for a picnic! The park is so beautiful. We had fun feeding the ducks and Annabelle LOVED the swing :) Today is Sunday, we are inside.... it's cold and I'm itching for another warm day at the park!!!!!


Service With a Smile

This past Saturday Annabelle went on her first service project! Brad was asked to help at the chapel and unload two truck loads of food from the bishops storehouse. In order to give the sister missionaries a ride, Annabelle and I decided to tag along!!! It's always such a treat being around sister missionaries:) It just brings me right back to my mission and so many fun memories.....it's just so fun talking with them!!!

Well, it was amazing how much food there was and how many orders needed to be filled!!! The stake President said there were 20% more orders then usual due to the bad economy...sad :( It was great to see the variety of food items people were able to receive. I was surprised at all the fresh produce too! Brad was the produce dude :) They had a scale there and were weighing bananas, limes, oranges you name it! Some orders and 10 gallons of milk... kinda crazy. I walked around and dropped in meat patties to all 60 orders...then while Annabelle was asleep, I performed probably the most important role of the day..... counting and passing out the toliet paper rolls. :) I just have to say I know it wasn't a HUGE act of service we did, but I LOVE SERVICE!!!! It's awesome to forget about yourself and just help others... nothing quite like it :) So, any of ya feelin down or overwhelmed??? GO OUT AND SERVE!!!!!!

Annabelle just couldntkeep her hands off that milk!!! :)


Annabelle's 6 Month Photos....


1. I have my two bottom teeth now!

2. I sit on the kid high chairs when mommy and daddy go out to eat. I even ride in the shopping carts when we run errands.

3. I eat baby food now. I love squash and Sweet Potatoes the best!!! I have graduated to eating what mom and dad eat.... as long as its in small pieces.

4. I can say "Da Da", "Ma Ma" and "Ba Ba" .... but mostly "Da Da Da" which brad absolutely LOVES of course!!!!

5. I can get up on all fours and rock back and forth. I can't crawl frontwards yet, but I can push myself backwards. I usually get up on all fours have no clue what to do next... and squeel at a very high pitch :)

6. I'm no longer "mr. clean" baldy baby. I have begun to sprout some peach fuzz. aka HAIR!!!!
