New Project

I decided a few weeks ago I needed a project this summer after school got out. So one day at the library with nick I found a book called Contemporary Modern Quilts. I found one that I absolutely loved, and decided to give it a try. Especially since I currently work with a woman who has made tons of quilts. I figured I better take advantage of her expertise while I still can. It's an applique quilt, meaning lots of hand-sewing for me. I got all the fabrics and special cutting boards, etc. I finally got started on it Saturday. So far it's going well and I'm still excited about it. Hopefully I can stay excited for the whole project. Nick tells me I have to finish after all the money I spent on it. Pictures to come if it turns out cute!

So proud...

I figured out how to change the background and make it prettier. I never thought this day would come...I had resigned myself to the template options blogspot gave me. It's amazing what happens during summer when I no longer have school and have to find ways to kill time in between work.

Buzz Lightyear!

Dana and i went to California. We went to Disney. It was awesome. Here is proof.

Notice our focus. Notice the final scores. And people say that video games don't help you in life.

This picture speaks for itself. And yes I did catch it all on my own. Boo-ya!

And please ignore my crazy hair...apparently I was working pretty hard to catch that thing.

Update on Steve

So my little brother Steve is on a mission in Russia. He went into the MTC on Feb. 12 and was there for about 11 weeks. I got to talk to him from the airport last week while he was getting ready to fly out and it was so fun. He has now been there almost 2 weeks and from his emails he is doing well. He is in a city called Tula, which I believe is about 3 hours south of Moscow (but I could be remembering that wrong). From what my computer tells me he has had much warmer weather all week then we have been getting here in Provo, so I guess he lucked out and just missed the crazy winter. Just wait til next year! Anyway, these are a few pictures his mission presidents wife sent us. The first is with his first companion, and the second is from his first day in Moscow when they went to Red Square. I have to say they made me pretty jealous. I can't wait to plan a trip there once he gets home and can be my tour guide.

If you want to write to Steve email me or leave a comment and I'll get you his address. I'm sure letters will always be appreciated!
