My Kindle! So excited. I've saved up for a few months... gift cards from different survey companies I'm involved in for Amazon. We got it yesterday and I already have kids wanting to use it. It's a Kindle Touch so it's very easy to use, even while feeding a new baby :)
We've wanted one of these since they came out... well, here we are. Kind of anti-climatic, ain't it. We have quite the collection of free books that I've been downloading, plus some deals we found, plus the LDS scriptures from LDS.org. Fun!

I know all my kids definitely have similar features, but this one was too good to pass up posting. The above picture is from February 2005... the lower picture is from April 2012. I just thought it was great that I figured out whose face I kept remembering when I was looking at little Juliana's awake and calm face. :)

Juliana was 12 days old yesterday. This may seem like a random age to celebrate, but it isn't. We had one little one who was only able to stay with us 12 days before moving on to bigger and better things. When one of my babies turns 12 days old, I remember Joseph. Usually around midnight, when his little spirit left his body as we held him in our arms. So I held my baby girl close, late at night, and watched her sleep.

Cousin buddies! Gregory (almost 4) and Christopher (4) LOVE spending time together. Good thing both of our families are in Missouri! (just opposite sides of the state.)
And we need some blackmail pictures for when they are teenagers...
Tom and his brother Adam... they share a birthday, like two of our daughters, now. Adam and his family came to visit this weekend and to attend the temple Open House for the Kansas City Missouri temple. It was a good weekend!
They each got ONE candle, because their combined ages would have needed 70 candles...

Juliana has red, curly hair. It was just washed here (spit up incident... not sure how she got it there, but she did...) and with the sunlight (good for her slight jaundice...) it looked REALLY red... it was also a grumpy morning.

As we watched General Conference, we moved pictures of the 12 Apostles and First Presidency into the family room after they spoke to the general congregation. (other than the one who just spoke to the Priesthood... he got moved then.)
Some of our contributions to our Youth Fundraiser... there was a spaghetti dinner, a service auction, and a silent auction. Emilie also made a cake but these are the boys' cakes. Proceeds were for Young Women's camp and Scout Camp plus.
