Jaycey & Jared

13 July 2014

Almost done...

Back in the day...when Doug did about 2 years worth of credit in a few months...this was the pile o'stuff he had to study...


Then he got his reward...


And in off times, they had fun..he said this was red neck wake boarding...the truck on the bank of the river pulling them...


This was when Ron and Becca's bar had air time in 'Ax Men'...very very cool!!!


Some of the best food I ate in San Francisco was at Anchor and Hope...lesson we learned, if there's no price on the menu...plan on being surprised when you get your bill...lol...man, those were some great appetizers though...


I need to start decorating cookies again...instead of just frosting them...


Doug and I had hungry people in our Sunday School class...here, I showed my love by sharing my favorite potato chips of all time...


Yeah...not a great one of me...but Jaycey looks great!  Ladies to the left of us are my sister-in-law Lori and my niece Baylee...man, I hated that haircut...even if the wind hadn't been blowing and giving me those weird bangs...I just hated that haircut...


Yup...I need to decorate...because those dinosaurs made me smile.  And even those lazy hearts were nice...


And...more documentation of that hated haircut...it even made a stupid caricature not good.  And does my nose really look like that?  Sigh...


Day 2 of our move back east...


Wedding photo booth...


Making a nephew smile...


Britt indulging her mom and sending a picture of the time she became 23...


My brother taking time out at work to show a co-worker how to skydive...

Memory Lane

Just a trip down memory lane...for me...via my email cleaning out chore...

Here's one of the things I miss about Rawlins...trying to convince the deer that we are buddies... I was, at the most, 15 feet away from this beauty...


Here's my dad with a good percentage of his grandkids and some of his great-grandkids...


I played with jello for some Christmas party.  I'd do the layered one again...the "stained glass" one?  Probably not.


Here's Natalia and Jaycey at Camille's baby shower back in 2011...


And here's Doug holding baby Taylor and making LaDawn laugh...


This was taken when Tina and I couldn't find where we had parked in downtown Boise...like...we had no clue...we were going up and down blocks for a long time trying to find the parking lot where we had parked...good times...


Here's Tony and Darrell having some nephew/uncle music making time with Ezra looking on...


The chick in the blue peacoat walking her bike?  She is Britt's "twin" living and loving San Francisco...


Bon Jovi wishes that every day could be like Chris... Every.  Day.  Like Chris.  Maybe it's because Chris is living in New Jersey right now?  ?  ?


My adopted pet the San Francisco hotel offered...so I took them up on it...and I called him Augustus Lorenzo...and he was an awesome roommate.


The cool wall paper in one of the few restaurants Jaycey and I could eat at due to being snowed in while stuck in Washington D.C. during two blizzards...that was an awesome school trip where we learned how to pass time in airports and convention centers...


This still makes NO sense.  How is ladies intensive moisturizer a substitute for a male fragrance?


Riley's birthday...he's probably more than double that size now...


My girls...Thanksgiving 2010...


One time, I opened my purse...and my brother-in-law just happened to be looking at me...so...freeze frame...grab the phone and snap a picture...cuz that's funny...


This next one is what happens when we make a pitstop in the middle of the night...and I leave my adult daughters alone in a truck stop while I go potty...I come out...  "Look mom!"  A do-rag and hat fashion show...


Stay tuned...more memories to come...

Phone Dump

I have only...oh...I don't know how many "Phone Dump" posts to do to get my phone emptied before I have my solo road trip adventure...so, here we go...pictures I've taken...pictures I've snitched...

My sister, Tamra, and her family...


We went out to dinner...stopped in some little shop and Doug didn't complain once about me looking at all the little things...he even found something that made him chuckle...AND then he even posed...


This was a picture that Cecily wanted me to take.  Doug was heading to bed and she liked that he was wearing only one sock...


Here are three wonderful men.  Otherwise known as my nephews Ben, Eyan, and Alex...


Here's Kim getting ready for a pinata smack down at Leanna's bday party...


DOWN!  Timothy and Jakob are quick to the rescue...


Kitchen selfie with the new missionary line-up... 


I drove a truck full of girls and their stuff to YW camp, but I didn't stay this year.  This was the view from my window as I was waiting for some girls to come get the rest of their stuff...gorgeous.  Simply gorgeous...


  Then (totally snitched this one), this picture was posted from the night our fearless bishop went up.  Love this group of people!


Yet another family moment I missed out on...Miss Janae getting baptized by her dad.  Love Miss Leanna's posture sitting there...


One night, the missionaries commented on how one family they teach wants them to bring 'Kevin Bacon'...I asked who looks like Kevin Bacon?  Ah...a young man from our ward who is about to go out on his own mission...  So I laugh because he had posted a picture of him with some glasses from somewhere on Facebook that made me think of another movie...  See if you know who I'm talking about:


So then I make a picture with them together...and text it to Nathan...


And then, at the missionaries request, I did another one with Bacon added...the kicker is that Nathan didn't know who the star of 'Footloose' was.  I am officially old.


Here is my Miss Dara.  She just moved away from here.  I will miss her and her sneaking loads of pictures on my phone...


(here's our last sunday at the piano together...and we found the most unflattering angle for fat arm pictures for me...and the scribbled pictures are ones that will be posted shortly so...)





 Have I posted this before?  Don't know...even if I have...oh well.  They're cuties and they're mine...and in a few weeks I get to 'meet' her and hear his stories...


Here's a little great-niece of mine who apparently liked some flowers she saw at Thanksgiving Point...lol...
