Seems Harmless...

1. As a comment on my blog, leave one memory that you and I had together. It doesn't matter if you knew me a little or a lot, anything you remember!
2. Next, re-post these instructions on your blog and see how many people leave a memory about you. It's actually pretty funny to see the responses. If you leave a memory about me, I'll assume you're playing the game and I'll come to your blog and leave one about you. If you don't want to play on your blog, or if you don't have a blog, I'll leave my memory of you in my comments.

I Can't Help But Laugh

So, today I was having a nice phone conversation with my friend Amber when I became aware of the lack of noise coming from my sweet toddler. For those of you with children, you know that silence usually signals catastrophe. Sure enough, I looked down to see Lexi elbow deep in Vaseline. She was such a mess that the only thing I could think of to do was grab my camera and have a good laugh. By the way, these pictures don't do justice to the amount of jelly she had spread on herself, her dress, the couch, and the carpet. Honestly, I didn't even attempt to wash her dress. I just made my peace and threw that one away (Sorry Lala).

In Loving Memory of Jerilyn Nielsen Shipley
May 20, 1973 ~ June 26, 2008

My dear sister Jerilyn passed away last Thursday, the 26th of June. She was a beautiful person inside and out and will be missed greatly. May we all strive to be more Christlike, just as she was. I know that would make her happy. Thank you for your prayers, phone calls, and emails, my family has really appreciated them.
