Thompson / Powers Pics!

A few weeks ago I was able to round up the whole gang (my 4 member family, my parent and my 2 sisters) for some family pictures I was desperate to get done. Brian and I get our family pictures done once or twice a year, but we hadn't done any with everyone. We are such a close family that it seemed silly not to have any.
My mom knew a lady that she teaches with that takes photos on the side, and she was happy to be hired for the job! She does a really neat thing. Instead of paying for expensive prints and things, she only charges a fee to take the pictures, and then you buy the rights to the photos. You then get them on a CD and are free to do what you wish with them! I love that! There are so many places to get prints from that won't break the bank (unlike our experience at Antisdels in '09).

Here's some great shots that Val got of everyone out at one of my favorite places from Kansas. Heritage Park! I spent many, many hours there in my kid years.

Long Distance Jojo

We knew this day was coming for a long time. But we continued to live in happy ignorance up until Friday. Jolee left to spend the summer with her Mom and Step-Dad in North Carolina. We know that she is going to have a wonderful time and get in lots of memories with her other family, but she's just so much stinkin' fun, that it's really hard to go even a day without her! Fortunately we have Face Time to help us when we get to missing her badly. We are also planning to go out that way for a trip some point in the summer, and get in a couple of days with her.

Now, I'm off to go complete my package I'm sending to her tomorrow...

WE MISS AND LOVE YOU JOLEE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
