I went away and now I'm back.

I went to Arizona to celebrate my grandma's 90th birthday.
It was an awesome reunion and it was great to see so many relatives! 

I didn't take one single picture.  I'm so mad at myself!
But here are some pictures from my sister, Booke's camera.  She's good like that.  She took probably 350 pictures and then sent me some. 


that's me and kara laughing.  I think it's funny:)
Tommee wanted me to hold her for like 10 minutes.  {it was really windy out!} It's the only quality time I got with my little neice all weekend.  I didn't even tell any of those whipper snappers goodbye. 
Here are a few shots with the siblings:
Krista, Kara, Caleb, Brooke, meeeeeeee.
the sibs
just for your information, Krista (far left) is something like 28 weeks pregnant with her third child.  How did we get such opposite pregnancy genes?  I was trying not to be jealous, but then again it was easy, because she's the sweetest most gracious hostess.  Thank you, darling sister.

and finally one with the mama:

How was that?  So many people complain that I don't put pictures of myself up on the blog.  Now would you recognize me on the street?  It'll have to do until the next time I forget to take any pictures and have to use them from my sister's camera:)

You are so photogenic! What great shots. I could almost (almost) feel the radiant sun of Az. Instead, I'm wondering if I should start looking for a man building an ark in any nearby neighborhoods.

Dallas and Krista said...

I never realized how hideous I look when standing with all of my sisters. You are all so beautiful... and the fabulous weekend was SUCH A BLUR. I wish I weren't so tired all the time so I could stay up and spend every minute with you. But wasn't Grandma just so wonderful? I mean really... quite wonderful.

How great to see the whole gorgeous fam and put all the names to faces! I have never put it together that you have 3 sistahs and a bro -- just like me. I'm slow that way. ;-) Great pics all around -- so warm and sunny in more ways than one.......
