Come home please...




My Little Sister is currently up at a Scout Camp being a Cope Course instructor and has been this entire summer! But the good news is, she will be home in two weeks!! Taylor and I weren't exactly friends when we were little. Colby and I are 15 months apart so always stuck together and teased and tormented her as much as we could. Then Colby left on his mission and I had to be her friend. :) No honestly, we got to be really close and I think even after I got married, we got even closer. I can talk to Taylor about a lot of stuff. She is a great little sister but also one of my Best Friends. Sure she can be a little spacey but the girl has so many other talents! She has a solid testimony, a great sense of humor, she'll listen to me when I need her to, and she is a strong person (inside and out :) ).

Now, those are just a few of her talents. She sings, harmonizes, writes music, reads music and can tell you every note or key you sing in, Amazingly! She draws, colors, paints, doodles better than anyone I have ever met. She takes pictures with her photographer brain and has every aspect of an artist. :)

This is one of her most recent drawings... yes, done in pencil, also yes, done in about a week. She did this of our really good friend Lindsey's kids. One; they are stinkin adorable! but two: this picture is almost identical to the one she copied it from.... and did I mention they are way cute!! I was so impressed with her, every time she does another artwork of some kind I am more impressed with this talent of hers. Maybe I can force her in to doing one for me when she gets home?... Or maybe Colby and I will torment her until she does, I'm sure Colby would be in on it if he got a picture out of it too. :)

I was wondering if I could get the number of the photographer who took your photos at the hospital, I have really been wanting to find out more about it. I'm interested in doing it myself.


Thanks Chantelle
