Family Pictures


When Michelle was here last weekend she took our annual family pictures for us. I'm having trouble adjusting the picture on the blog - it keeps cutting off the right side of the picture. If anyone has any suggestions on how to fix that I'd love to hear them.
Jaylee is now a permanent fixture in our home. She's been with us for almost a month now. She and Erin share a room, she does chores, says the prayers, acts as a peacemaker (my favorite!!) and in general just blends in like she's always been here. We'll see how things progress in the coming weeks and months. She's a great girl and just wants so much to be part of a family, something she's never had before. So now there are eight of us under this roof. It's a good thing we bought a big van last year because now we only have one empty seat in it. I keep teasing Mark that we need to fill it - he's not amused. I'll try again another month...
I love the fall - the changing of the trees. That is what I miss most about living back east. We have a little bit of trees around here, but nothing like Maryland. Our family pictures were taken down in Zintel Canyon. There is a nice trail through it that we like to walk on and pick wild blackberries in the summer.

The pictures turned out cute! I think Jaylee looks enough like you guys that she could easily be a member of your family!

Such cute pictures. We wanted my father to take our annual photo while he is visiting this weekend but it's been raining and gray... I guess we will have to enlist someone who is not related.

The phtos are SO good. Who ever took them is really good.

So the neighbor girl now lives with you? Wow, I bet that's an interesting story.
