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!


A pile of pictures to be shared!

A pile of pictures to be shared!

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.

Joseph Hord Free comes on his due date!

Joseph Hord Free comes on his due date!

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!

Ellie requested that we stop and get our picture taken with one foot in Arizona and the other in Utah...so we did. Pretty nice looking gang! (you might have to load the larger version to see their faces)

We are going to be using some family feud like questions as part of the family dinner for Joseph and Elizabeth on the 28th of March.

Melinda's Going on a Mission...But When and Where???

Melinda's Going on a Mission...But When and Where???

At the beginning of this week my Bishop let me know that the status of my call was "Ready for Assignment." That means that they might have made the assignment yesterday (Thursday)! Sometime soon my call will be mailed! I can hardly wait!

That also means that it is time to get the guesses going. I think it is fair to have one state-side and one foreign guess. Feel free to post your guesses as to where I will go and when the call will arrive!

I Love you all!!!


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...

He said "My amazingly great companion who knows everything about computers has a YouTube account and offered to upload some of the movies from New Years for you. So here are the links...if you would like...you could put your favorite on the family website...I don't know how to do that! "

Labor Day Quick Trip

Labor Day Quick Trip

Diana and Melinda drove up to Utah to move Melinda in to her new digs. Joseph was able to come down from Rexburg with his Uncle Kirt and Aunt Brenda and surprise them. They had a great time. They spent the night in Paragonah on the way up and got to see the new trailer and John and Jen and gang. Then they moved Melinda in and had a party with the other free gangs up there. Then Sunday night they were with the Jamison cousins. Here are the pictures.
