The Papworth's Visit

Michael and Kristi and Will flew all the way from Denver to visit us in Oregon this last weekend and we had a lot of fun. The goal of the weekend: get Kristi as excited about moving to Oregon as Michael (probably never going to happen). We spent a few days in Salem and then spent the rest of the weekend at my parents house in Portland. We showed Kristi and Will around Portland and Lake Oswego, and the weekend was absolutely beautiful.

I couldn't believe how much Will has changed and how cute he is! Nick and I are planning on taking credit for his improved walking skills.

Look how cute they are!

Of course Nick and Michael had to bring a football or frisby everywhere.

Beautiful view of Portland. And oh yeah, the family is pretty attractive too.

Tag, Picture Version

I was tagged and had to post my fourth picture in my fourth folder. This is one of our many classic family pictures where we are all in color coordinated outfits. I am about eight years old I think and I think I am getting impatient, which might explain the look on my face. My other favorite things about this picture: Landon's outfit and pose, McKenna's bangs and sailor dress, the awesome bows that Bri and I are wearing.
The following people now have to pass on their fourth picture in their fourth folder on their computer: Amanda, Carly, Meredith, Sam.

It's Raining Men! Hallelujah!

This was us last week, but . . .

Thanks to our Young Men's President - Brett - and the priests in our ward, the tree got cut down. They were so nice to come chop the thing down. And I do mean chop, because the chain saw wasn't working. I would have helped, but I was watching the Presidential Debate, and I don't trust myself with an axe. But now we have lot of firewood laying on the side of our house, so anyone need some firewood?

A Tree Fell on our House

This Friday, in the middle of the night, a tree in our backyard fell onto our house. Luckily, it didn't do much damage, it just bent the gutter. But at about 4 a.m. I thought there was an earthquake. I tried to wake Nick up to explain to him that a tree fell on our house, and his response was, "What do you want me to do about it???" He's a little delirious in his sleep. It's still there, and now we have to figure out how to get rid of it. Any ideas?
