miss Olivia

This is my niece Olivia.  I wanted my sister to name her Olive but her husband won that fight- how rude!  
My sister asked me to take some photos of her in her blessing gown.  And the consensus is- I need to take more photography classes.  Luckily she is a cute baby and her cuteness makes up for my lack of skills.

Miss Olivia had an exciting birth.  She was 10 lb. 14 oz. my older sister who had her is not equipped with a body to accommodate such large birthing circumstances (read; petite).  But all turned out well &a this baby & her mom are healthy and happy!  

This blessing dress was my Grandfathers (my mom's dad).  Olivia's mom was blessed in this dress (if I remember correctly) and now Olivia has been.  There's nothing I love more than generational hand-me-downs. It's worth it to invest in beautiful kids clothing.

i want to be a flower farmer


This store marigold & mint not only sell the flowers, they grow them 
how great would it be when someone asks "what do you do?" & you get to say
"I'm a flower farmer"

screen shots & protests

While I was in Jordan I was lucky enough to be able to use my computer & the internet 
I thought it was cool to pull up google & yahoo & have everything in Arabic. So I took some screen shots.
The first and last one show the Yahoo news real with stories of the protests in Egypt.

Speaking of all that, we received a lot of emails & calls asking if we were okay & we were.  It didn't really affect us except for some protesters that we had to avoid on our way to church.  There was never a time I didn't feel safe.  Even when crossing the Jordan/Israel border & an alarm went off & the guards went running- but that's a story for another time.
