My grandma

So, recently my uncles have been posting all of these old photos of my dad and his siblings and parents from the 50's and 60's. There are tons of pictures I'd never seen before and I'm absolutely in love with them. I like pictures anyway, and to hear about my Grandpa taking pictures of my Grandma and their kids makes me happy. I wish he was around still so we could talk about cameras and all that- I never knew him though. My Grandma died when I was in high school, and this past weekend it would have been her birthday I believe, so I decided to post these pictures in her honor. My uncle Jeff says she was the original Scarlett Johannson. I agree.

My Grandma (Dorothy Marcia, called Marci) was THE most lovely, sweet and kind person I've ever known. She had so much love to give and I know she loved and helped and prayed for each one of her children and grandchildren her entire life.

When I was 5 we got to live with her for a few years. It takes a wonderful woman to let her Son and his wife and 3 kids live with her in a tiny condo. She was an amazing example to all of us, and I know for sure her influence helped my family become active in the church.

My dad is # 3 out of 7 children...the first four were boys, then two girls, then a boy. Seeing these makes me want a big family. We'll see if that actually happens...ha. :)

Busy Times

Things have been a little crazy around the house. With David working, going to school and taking an LSAT class 3 times a week we barely see each other, except on weekends. I've been finding things to occupy my time- netflix being one of them. I've also gotten myself back into reading, something I used to LOVE and I'm realizing how much I've missed it.

I've also decided to be more diligent in posting on my Recipe Blog, and invited Kristine and Kari to contribute to it as well to keep things busy. Check it out if you want some cooking ideas. We like good food. A lot.

David takes the LSAT this Saturday and we're getting pretty nervous. Well, him more than me. But he is more stressed right now than I've seen him in all the time I've known him- which makes me uneasy. We'll be happy once it hits about noon this Saturday. Then we'll be on our way to California to see my family, David's family, our nieces and fly to Hawaii for a week!
