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 to stream live audio and video from my iPhone to the web so you can all watch.

So go to 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).

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.

Becca's 2008 Christmas Concert

Thanks to Grandpa we have video of Rebecca's recent concert. Here is a single clip. Their group blends their voices so well. She is on the very left. A few seconds into the video and you get more of a closeup.

Snow and glow in February

Snow and glow in February

We had a great trip for the 50th celebration for Diana's parents, Ron & Ann Jamison. We had such a great time in such a short visit. The snow was like disneyland for the kids. We loved being with all of you.

Here are the boys working on the 12-15 foot high snow in the Jamison's backyard!

Here are some pictures from the trip and a few of the 50th.

There are a few videos in there too. One has Nate giving Jake a buzz...

Wii response...

I had to share this video of the kids opening up the Wii on Christmas morning. Wow is all I can say! Talk about a hit.

Free4All's First Production!

With the help of Grandma and Grandpa Jamison we built a marionette theater and about 12 marionettes for Christmas. Here is the first production. Script was by the movie and you can see all the credits at the end. They did great!

Ok, so for Christmas Santa only gave our family one gift, (now realize that mom and dad gave plenty, this is just from Santa) and that one gift contained a Wii!!! The best part of it was that we hadn't even asked for it, i mean sure we had voiced that we would like to have it, but that was a long time ago, and low and behold, we got it!!! We all now have our very own "Mii" characters and that includes my mom and dad! The whole family plays, but mostly the younger boys take over with all their friends. Dad is of course the master of all, he seems to know all the techniques that you need to do in order to win, and he wins all the time!!! (except in Boxing.....Ü) Daniel is the master Bowler because he has gone "pro", Andrew is pretty good at tennis,(i secretly think that it is because he is a lefty, but that is just me), Josh is pretty much good at every thing because he can laugh about it Ü, Melinda is great at all the mini games, and of course, Dad and Jopes are just Pro's all around with out even trying, mom,....well....of the few times that she has played it with me...she pretty much kick my trash at every mini game we played, and Adam, Adam loves to do bowling and this cow racing game, both of which he can beat me at too!!! Well, i thought that i would just inform you all on what is going on 24/7 at our house!! luv ya all!

Fall Fun

I have had a wonderful first half of November! With the help of the Hord family, I was able to fly down to AZ and surprise my family on the 1st. On Friday, I went on the Father/Daughter campout with my Dad and sister (you can see a picture of them with some of the YUMMY teryaki sauce we picked up on the way). It was fun to spend time with my family and visit my home ward (and mission prep is the BEST). Joseph and Elizabeth Hord were also down there that weekend (trying out for the Easter Pageant). The three of us flew back to Salt Lake on the same flight and got lunch together (Wendy's) after arriving back in Provo.

This past weekend, Becca and Reid were able to fly out for a visit. Some family friends hosted a baby shower for Becca, and it was a lot of fun. Reid's mom did the food, so of course it was amazing, and they have a lot of great people there. They also had a really fun and creative activity at the shower. There were several plain white onesies and special fabric markers for people to use in decorating them! It was great! I took a couple pictures of Lauren's masterpiece. Ü

Today, I got to go with Becca to the BYU Museum of Art (one of our favorite places to be...lots of good memories Ü). You can see a picture of us in front of the building that a nice girl (enjoying her lunch on a bench nearby) was nice enough to take for us. We looked at almost everything in the building, and we also got to visit briefly with two of her (well, our) former art history professors. We then headed across the street to meet up with Reid for lunch and ice cream (delicious, of course!) at the BYU Creamery. Happy day! ...And a beautiful one. I am also including a couple shots of the fall leaves and blue sky taken today in the courtyard of my building.

I hope you are all having a fun fall!

Fun at home!

Fun at home!

I was able to get a week off of work and visit home! The best part about it was I surprised everyone! When I walked inside mom was in the kitchen. I snuck up on her, put my arms around her, and said "hi". She was totally surprised, and her reaction was definitely worth coming here for. Part of the time I spent at home, we decided to go camping in Canyon Creek. You can check out the pictures by clicking here.
