11 on 11 of 1-11

Oh, this 11-11 project is going to be great fun.  The pictures started rolling in around 7:00 a.m.    

I couldn't get the collage to download correctly which means there was nothing to upload, which means you get the motherload.

It was Dallin's birthday today.  Imagine that, on 1-11-11.

Another day in Iraq.

I was driving to the airport this morning and the odometer rolled 111.1. On the plane before we took off, they announced that it was minus 11 degrees in Salt Lake. The Lord loves Ray.

Oh boy.  Old fashioned hotdogs and sauerkraut for supper.

Basketball.  Tonight Dallin had a basketball game.  This is actually a typical place for you to see us lately.

It’s final.  We have a house waiting for us in Colorado Springs.  Our first home.

My day. Ande's car was dead. She got two tickets from a parking enforcement officer. It got towed, but gratefully not impounded!

Joe and I went to see Picasso and bought season tickets to the museum. Here is my finger pointing at Picasso’s signature on one of his paintings. It was really fun to go and feel like I was in Europe at a museum for a bit.

Ray just home from Utah and me just waking-up from sleeping on the couch while waiting for him to get home.  Both of us worn out from a LOOOOONG day of work.  Ray's plane had to circle above Seattle for an hour while they snow-plowed the runway.  He made it home just in time to toast to 1-11-11 at 11:11.  Orange juice in Sake cups.

Visiting teaching with my friend Barbra.  I love Barbra, Barbra loves me, and we are happy visiting teach-ees.

I'm glad you're doing this mom. EVEN though, I was complaining at first (you know me... reject first and accept later). I enjoyed the update on everyone... especially because Ande didn't tell me about the tickets with her car. Sheesh, what a day for them. I also liked imagining Abe asking someone to take his picture for him.

What fun stuff (and not so fun stuff) your family has going on. I like the glimpse into the collective lives.

This is so great! I'm impressed that you got everyone to participate.

"The Lord loves Ray." That cracked me up. (Although he does, of course!)

Ande's car looks dead in more than one sense of the word.

Becky said...

Genius! I'm not sure which I liked better--the pictures or the captions....Ray's caption (on the picture of the watch) made me laugh out loud. :)

Love this glimpse into your family life.

It's so fun to see these snippets from your family's day. The one of Abe in Iraq gave me chills.
