Jessie's High School Graduation

On May 15th, we attended the high school graduation for our baby girl, Jessie. She's been attending BYU for the past semester, but returned home to walk with her class at commencement exercises. Congratulations, Jessie! We love you!

It was a cold and rainy morning...just like the day he was born. On Saturday, May 14th, Daniel received his endowments at the St. Louis Temple in preparation for his mission. We are so proud of this worthy young man and his righteous decisions.

May Visiting Teaching Gift

Like I've said before, I like to take a little something to
each of the Sisters I visit teach.
For the month of May, I'm giving them a little bookmark
made from this printable I found here:
The cute vintage kids at the bottom are the early years "Campbell Soup Kids".
With these "Mothers' Day" and "SOUP" themed bookmarks,
I'm going to give them each a copy of Chicken Soup for the Mothers' Soul.
Shhh...I found NEW hardback copies on for around $2.00 each!
(Suggested retail was $24.00)
Gift du jour!
Whatdaya think?
