20 years in pictures

Again, I hate to scan pictures. And there actually are surprisingly few of Andrew and I together anyway : ) I, of course, have been contemplating the last 2 decades. It all boils down to our kids really. Someday I'll scan and post the pictures of Andrew and I vacationing in Washington D.C., at the cabin etc, because of course we've been places and done things together. But as I'm thinking about it, the most important things are the 4 little souls we've created together. We've weathered jobs, callings, car problems galore, a flooded basement,teenagers, ill parents, suicide, miscarriage, a stillborn son. But we've also had fun, worked together, and watched these 4 amazing people come into the world and enrich our lives beyond anything we could have imagined. Especially notice the college graduation picture with THREE kids under the age of FOUR. Yeah! And notice how much my dear husband loves his kids...especially his girls. And between daughter #1 and the last picture of daughter #2 he lost the mullet!

Blogging is great. We left Utah so many years ago I don't think we really know your family that well. But since I've been lurking around your blog I feel like I've gotten to know your family more. Great pictures.

I have really enjoyed reading your blog, and what darling pictures your family. I can feel your pain as Sean just left for BYUI last week. You are very blessed to have such great communication with Jillian. Boys are a little different in that regard. However, he hasn't been too bad...but not like when Melissa went away to school. Don't the years go by fast??? I'm glad you are enjoying your time with your children.
