KATIE LOVES DONNIE!!!!

Katie use to love MIKEY the TMNT most.  
Mikey got loved to death (seriously, his leg fell off).  
 Katie spotted DONNIE, the pillow pet, in ShopKo this spring, and just had to have him.  
 Katie and DONNIE became fast friends.
 Katie takes Donnie with her whenever she can.
 This particular day, it was an extra special treat.
 One Saturday, I told Katie she could take Donnie to school for a BFF photo shoot.
 These two are inseparable.  
 Katie has told me on several occasions, "I want to MARRY DONNIE in the Logan Temple!"
 A stuffed animal as loved as Donnie would be so lucky.
 Too bad this Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle can't provide everything for his biggest fan.
 I guess these two will just have to stick with being best buds!

Our Girls Love to Dance

 Last summer, Katie was super lucky to get to take ballet lessons for the first time.  
She sure loved getting all dressed up in her ballet clothes and attending class with a few other girls.  
Although Julia didn't take an official dance class, she was paying close attention to her big sister. 
 I'm sure Julia can't wait for her turn!

Olson Cousins

Last summer in July, our little family drove across Wyoming and down to Colorado to visit Jenny & Seth and their family as well as Aaron & Sarah and their family.  
I took several pictures with my phone, but the only time I whipped out my nice camera was right before we drove back home early one morning.

Brian is 12!!!

Brian turned 12 back in February! He is such a helpful, obedient, smart, kind, handsome young man. 
We love him! These pictures are right before his first time entering the Logan Temple 
(and before he got his braces put on).





Katie's 7th Birthday!!!

Katie had a super fun 7th birthday party! 
They had a pizza party, made easy beaded bracelets, and played in our fun backyard. 
Thank you to all who came and for the great gifts!!!  Katie is still a big TMNT fan!
