Fabulous February 2020

February is a “leapy” one this year. We get an extra day. Let’s go explore!

PICNIC Time

It’s so green. Wait, it’s only February.

 

And one more special thing this month…..NEWS of another grand baby on it’s way!

Thanks JQ and C$ for sending us another grandson!

 

Joyous January 2020

A lot happened in January—where did the best month of EVER go?

Fun time with sweet granddaughter!

 

Had a BD party with family….

 

…and some wonderful ATM missionaries.

 

PIE!

Great G&G at the blessing.

Departing Missionaries…sigh.

ENTIRE Mission Conference…Special visitors.

 

Former Sister getting married in Tucson!

 

Reunited with ATM Sisters- AND handsome PB!

 

Last pic….HBD JQ!

JuBean’s Baptism

JuBean had a big day.

She was baptized a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.

What a joyful day to remember. Lots of family and friends were there, and a whole lot of ATM missionaries.

She wore the dress her two older sisters (Dolly M & Eboo) wore when they were baptized. She looked like an angel with french braids.

Congratulations, JuBean! You are on the path to following your Savior.

Elder Babups Heading to Africa

Days before Babups left, we tried to get in some family togetherness one last time. Plus, we had a lot of packing to do. Two suitcases for two years in Africa… a bit of a stress for mama.

Time with Presto talking b-ball and the Utah Jazz.

 

Getting in our favorite breakfast place, Cracker Barrel!

 

Running errands and finding last items for his suitcase stash…Presto is not amused with shopping.

 

Babups’ last supper in Tucson was the famous Sonoran hotdog and a large strawberry Eegee! Tucsonans know of what we speak.

 

Getting advice from older brothers right before he was set apart.

 

The famous Arizona Tucson Mission stair photo of the family….most get this picture when they are going home from their mission. Babups gets one on his way to his mission!

 

President Walker of the Tucson Arizona Stake set Babups apart. Now he is an Elder.

 

Elder Babups will not return to Tucson after his mission, as we will be back in Idaho by then. So this is not only a good-bye to the family, but a good-bye to Tucson, AZ.

 

 

Had to include our friends the saguaro cacti!

 

 

Here we go to the Tucson International Airport….this is getting real now!

 

 

 

 

And now the dreaded good-byes….

 

 

 

 

Good-bye for TWO Elder Babups! We will be praying for you and loving you from afar.

Follow his adventures at his missionary blog.

Hurrah for Israel!!!

Unbelievable

How is it that a full year has gone by?

This is the family a little over a year ago–August 2017.

I don’t have the energy to even think of what has happened since that hot, August day in Tucson.

But here are some much needed and embarrassingly late updates.

Two more grand babies are in the oven baking…. Yay!!!!  One is due any day now (Sept 2018) and the other one  Spring 2019…

LillyDill (our sweet granddaughter in the picture) is 16 months old as of this post and is the cutest and most energetic thing ever!

Babups graduated from Seminary and received his own mission call to Africa Botswana/Namibia Mission ~(holy hannah)~ and he is getting ready to leave for the South Africa Missionary Training Center on October 11, 2018…

JuBean is now 7, Presto is 12 (the lone Deacon in our ward), and Eboo is 15 ….with a driving license coming in the near future.

I wish I could show a current photo of the family in September 2018, but that is not possible because we have never all been together in one place since this photo was taken.

Nonetheless, here are some pictures from the past year.

(Disclaimer: These photos are the ones currently on the computer I am on doing this post… I’m sure there are many more, but don’t have access to them right now.)

 

Babups at Seminary Graduation.

Just an hour before Seminary Graduation, Babups opened his mission call to the Africa Namibia/Botswana Mission. We all are a little shell shocked!

Eboo and Babups, the early morning seminary DUO!

Presto is just here for the food.

Jubean, will miss her big (and quite tall) brother!

 

Preston finally turned 12 and gets to sit in the front seat….that is if his older siblings let him.

 

 

Getting some snuggles in with LillyDill!!
