For Family Home Evening last night, Eric and I pored over different entertainment options for our Alabama trip (Which will take take place in just two weeks! Hooray!), and read Elder Uchdorf's talk from the last General Conference. I'd forgotten what comforting, helpful words he spoke that day, and it was a nice reminder.
And so that's the latest with us. Now for your viewing pleasure, here are a few random pictures, with some (hopefully short) explanations:
I took this picture on the trip I took to visit Tayneshia's Texas home in 2005. In the mornings, before the others woke up, I would take walks around the neighborhood, just to get a better feel for my surroundings. I love to do that. Anyway, here's one house/yard that I thought was interesting.
Speaking of interesting, here's a little turnabout. The picture on the right is Eric in what I call the blue room (also occasionally referred to as "the robot room" or "the man room") in our home. The picture below is what this same room looked like when the previous owners of our home lived in it (they had two children, both under the age of three). Personally, I like the homey-ness of the second photo. On the other hand, I love the fact that nearly all the robots in our house are confined to one room. Because of that, I have no problem with the changes we've made.
And the last picture is me at Rice-Eccles Stadium in Salt Lake City. This picture was also taken in 2005, on a little "Homage to the 2002 Olympics" jaunt that I took. I just adore the Olympics, and having them come to Salt Lake in 2002 was an experience like no other for me.
And with that, I leave you for another bit.
