People are often unreasonable and self-centered. Forgive them anyway.
If you are kind, people may accuse you of ulterior motives. Be kind anyway.
If you are honest, people may cheat you. Be honest anyway.
If you find happiness, people may be jealous. Be happy anyway.
The good you do today may be forgotten tomorrow. Do good anyway.
Give the world your best and it may never be enough. Give your best anyway.
For you see, in the end, it is between you and God. It never was between you and them anyway.

Well, time has flown by. We celebrated Sophie's 2nd birthday.

How freakin' cute is she?!?!?!

I made 18 jars of freezer jam.

Then my mom hurt her back so I went to AZ to help her (leaving the girls in SG). I wasn't planning on going back to SLC, but I got a call to have a job interview and drove back up to SLC (all for nothing as it turns out). Then turned back around and drove to SG. Then from there Jason, my dad and I flew to OH to help my sis and fam move to LV. We drove 30 hours through IN, MO, KS, CO, UT. Half way through CO, Jason said to me, "I thought the rocky mountians would be a little rockier than this." I replied, "Yeah, that John Denvers' full of $#!$ man." This is Kandra gettin crazy with the packing tape.

Jared graduated from Law school. It's nice to have a bad a lawyer in the fam.

We got home and it has taken a couple weeks to get back into the swing of things. I made the girls matching nightgowns like the one Regan has on, as well as a couple camera strap covers.

That is it in a nut shell....hope that will do Kandra.

Your coming here to help me was a lifesaver. Your leg and back massages were wonderful and all the work you did in the yard was so-o-o-o appreciated! Thanks so much for your sacrifice to come here and for going to Columbus with Jason to help Kandra move. Jason's parents need a medal for taking such good care of your girls.

The jam looks yummy and the nightie is adorable. Keep up the good work!!

I love my Sopher Dophers! She sure is freakin cute. And no one can argue with you about that! I especially love that pic of Regan where Jason is just chillin on the couch in the background. Did he know you were taking a picture? haha

PS) I love that I get to hang out with you twice a week and play with the girls, too. I'm so thankful for your help with Summer Camp, Kris! Love ya girl!

What!! She is not 2 yet, I don't believe it, wow time flies. Okay so it is official we are going to the UofU, so we get to hang out lots. I can't wait. We are not going to live in student housing though... it gets even better...we are going to bum a downstairs to our self in my in-laws house. We will still be close though (15 min away from the U) so I can't wait to see you adn hang out. We move in a little over a month. So I didn't realize you were looking for a job? A new one? I thought you already had one. Dude I am dreading finding a hygiene job in Utah again, grr.

I was getting sick of looking at your stinkin' laundry!!! Sophie is so cute with her pig tails! I love her curly hair. I can't wait until Gavin can rough her up.
When I looked at that picture of me I was like "What the heck!". It looked like you smeared cake in my nose. I had to click on the picture to see that it was in fact tape. Pretty funny. Thanks again for coming to help.
Oh and I croched around a little recieving blanket. It is a little wobbly but it is screaming "Kristal, I want to swaddle your next little BOY!". I don't know if I will give it to you because it would drive you crazy because it isn't perfectly straight. We'll see.

HEy Crystal! I have been wondering how you are doing. I am feeling a lot better, so I really want ot see if we can get together again or hang as families. Thank you for being my angel that day and coming to my house to clean. You are such a great example! I can't tell you how much it meant to me.
