I "spraypainted" her face out in these next photos with Paint in order to show off her cute outfit with boots and ears. Forget the outfit though--what a total cutie pie. She's always smiling or laughing. She is so enthusiastic about whatever we're doing. She is thoroughly delighted with every visitor we have, any age, and is a total people-person.
Here is an irresistable one of her with the binky in upside down. I don't know why but it never fails to make me laugh, especially when she turns it upside down intentionally.
Here's the new "rig" (as they call them here in ID) that I drive. Its one of Ray's dream vehicles, and he drove it for the last month, but now I "get" to drive it because I drive about 1/10 the miles that he does each day. Gas conservation. Lucky me. No, its actually really nice, but I am such a fan of the smaller vehicles. Ones where you don't have to plan in advance where you'll park or how you'll get out of the parking space. Ones that also conserve fuel. You know? I guess I am just grateful I have something to drive.
This past month we also said goodbye to an old friend: Ray's '56 Corvette. I've always liked this one of his collection of cars, but nothing lasts forever, does it? Here are some pictures of it:
Some guy in Virginia is driving it right now!In August I read an Ensign article about Family Search Indexing (here's the link).

Its basically data entry of old census records and the like. You see the actual record on your computer and then type the info in. Its easy--except when you can't read the old fashioned handwriting. But it does feel nice to feel like I'm doing something to help with family history, since I basically slack on it in most other ways.

I'm going on my third week of being sick. Poor Amelia had it and passed it to me. Now I get it when I hear parents moan about how hard it is to be sick when you have little ones to take care of. Its so hard!!! Anyway, I feel pretty miserable and am surprised at how long its hanging on. So my parting words are these: Take care of yourself because you don't what want I have!!
