New Family Pictures


We had some portraits taken at the temple. Check them out here.

Live video of Becca and Melinda's returns

UPDATE 2: We got a call from Melinda, at about 6:30pm, that she was waiting for us on the curb at the airport! I guess she got out on an earlier flight and we were never notified.

So we didn't get to see her come in the airport, but we got to be with her earlier and no airport parking fees!

----------------------------------

UPDATE: So Melinda and several other missionaries (11) did not have enough time to make the connection in Frankfurt, Germany so they spent the night there. Melinda had a standby ticket to come home today (Saturday) but we don't know for sure if she was able to get on. But we haven't heard otherwise so we are hoping to see her at Sky Harbor Airport at 10pm.

We will be streaming so you can view it on this page or go to the link below.

We have our fingers crossed!

----------------------------------

We are so excited to have our whole family together for the first time in over two years!

The first to arrive is Becca. She lands in Phoenix Sky Harbor at 9am on Friday the 18th. I will be going to pick her up. I am going to test out ustream.tv to stream live audio and video from my iPhone to the web so you can all watch.

So go to http://www.ustream.tv/channel/lovebeingadad at 9am tomorrow morning and you should see a live video feed of Becca in the airport. You can go there early and see some clips I took at the Mountain View Holiday Dinners and Andrew's band concert.

Then at 10pm the main event. Melinda is to arrive at 10pm. So be sure to check out the site. The third and last leg of her flight will be coming from Chicago, American Airlines Aa1733 (if you want to check if they are on time).

Funny Frees Video

Here is a video of our family on iChat. We were choosing names for Christmas, but had to spice it up a bit. Enjoy!


Fun in Idaho!

Fun in Idaho!

Hello, this is Mike Free. I don't know if ya'll remember me, or not. I was the one that made those one cookies...you know, the ones with MILK chocolate...not the fake-o semi-sweet chocolate.
Anyways, I was just writing a short email to Sese Fry and wanted to show her a photo. I also wanted to see if I still remembered how to post things on the blog. So, I hope you enjoy this photo and entry. The photo was taken by Jopes' phone.
I've just got to say, that I have such an awesome nephew!

We haven't uploaded pictures in some time. Here are some of the surprise visit with Elizabeth, Joseph and baby Jopes. We also have Becca's graduation and even some cub scout ones. I think there might be some birthday ones as well. I think it starts with us opening a package from Melinda! See them all here.

Here is the first picture taken of Joseph Hord Free, by his Dad's phone. He came right on schedule at 8:50pm. He weighed in at 6 lbs 6 oz and 19 inches long with lots of dark almost curly hair!


Doodle Wopps!

Doodle Wopps!

Elizabeth and I decided to try some recipe that we saw a while ago. I got the recipe from Sis. Foster...the amazing women my companion and I stayed with in my last area. She sent me two cook books that she had made for our wedding. So, Doodle Wopps was a fun name and it looked good. So, with some of our left over ham we tried it out! It was really good and was very easy clean up. You can see pictures by clicking here.


An Overdue Update...

An Overdue Update...

Hey everyone! Just thought we'd give a quick little update on life way up north!
Joseph played on a competitive ultimate frisbee team this semester. His team, the Titans, only lost one game the entire season, which took them to the championship finals. They played and practiced hard, and it payed off! They won the championship 14-10. Yay! Go Titans! I love going to watch him play... he enjoys it so much.
About three weeks ago, we were accepted as the new assistant managers for one of the mens housing complexes, so we packed up and moved that very weekend! Now we live right across from campus again, right next door to where we both lived before we were married. It's a 3 bedroom apartment, and we love it! One of the bedrooms is even painted pink!
Which brings us to our next bit of news... we're sure most of you have heard already that we're having a baby boy! Makes the pink bedroom kinda pointless, but we're excited nonetheless! I'll just have to turn the pink room into my project room or something. :)


Our Little Addition

Our Little Addition

We're a little slow in getting these first pictures up here, but here they are - our first pictures of the baby! These are actually from our first appointment back in August. We find out if we've got a boy or girl on October 30th, so if you want to guess, do so before then!! :) We love you all!
