Remember . . .Winter/Spring 2012
Meeting Rachael

The way two boy footprints look in the snow, going towards school
A white princess dress and "oh they say when you marry in June"
"Peez hug meeee"
Basketball dunk it hoop it clothes
A drive to the Tremonton hospital, the billboards, and feelings of eternity
 Savoring the last of the baby kicks on the inside--not wanting to forget them
Making it to an 8:00 am Jr.Jazz game--Roosters incredible court skills and H's tenacious D and view of the game
Almost making it to 1:00pm church!
Baby fingers on the outside and cuddling the "question mark"
Hyrum and Jared saying the best thing about this Christmas was Rachael . . . (I worried that our sweet Rae might have messed it up a bit)
Favorite stories: Duck on a Bike, Pete the Cat, Kevin Henkes, Tasha Tudor, Big Pumpkin, Pinkalicious, One Morning in Maine, and lots more
Emma showing her sister the pink peach blossoms and Seven Brides for Seven Brothers
Jogging with the kids through Bear River one spring evening

Good days
Bike riding boys
Neighborhood soccer games in the back yard and all those crazy kids . . .
Watching Farmboy and H work in the garden

Rae and Chris on blessing day
Rachael's brilliant sparkle and a blessing of joy
Hyrum watching the Joseph Smith movie in SLC
Looking over the Salt Lake Valley from the Church Office Building
Catching Jared and Rachael's quiet moments
Hyrum's talk in Sacrament Meeting and his testimony
Alma 57:27, Mosiah 2:17, 2 Nephi 9:52, 1 Nephi 3:7, 1 Nephi 8:15, Alma 53:21-21, Moses 1:39
