Elder and Sister Mini join the Adventure

Hmm... don't they remind you of... well never mind! These two little missionaries will be traveling with us for the next two years and will frequently be featured in this blog. This picture is Elder and Sister at the Cardston temple on August 21, 2008. We took them with our friends, Mel & Arlene Green, Nancy Lealos & Lola Tracy. We had a wonderful trip. Our good friend Sue is the master mind behind the world of the mini's. It all began when she made Mini Mark, years ago. Mini Mark traveled with Sue's husband Mark all over the globe. When Fred took his troops to Saudi Arabia in 2002- he met Mini Mark. So he decided all of our girls needed Mini's also. He contacted Sue via email and ordered dolls for our girls for Christmas that year.

One of our sweet girls is missing from this picture- that's Kindra. She joined our family later, and she received a mini-bride doll! We LOVE our friend Sue- she so generously shares her talents. And now we are the proud owners of our own Mini's. On another topic, here is some interesting "distance information" for those families who may be remotely interested in visiting us on our mission:
--Colorado Springs to Provo, UT: 550 miles
--Colorado Springs to Billings, MT: 624 miles
--Colorado Springs to Boise, ID: 901 miles
--Colorado Springs to Gt. Falls, MT: 842 miles
--Colo Springs to Spokane Valley, WA: 1154 miles
--Colo Springs to Portland, OR: 1328 miles

Elder and Sister Mini are so adorable. I can't wait to hear all about their mission adventures.

You might want to let Sister Mini know her skirt is a little short. I don't know who she plans on teaching, but she might be sending a mixed message. (wink)

Mom & Dad,
I am EMBARRASSED to say that this is the first that I've been to your blog. I must also admit that I got a little misty-eyed as I read through every post and comment (well, except for Kevin's haha). I am so proud of you guys and truly feel that I couldn't have chosen better in-laws. Thanks for loving us so much and being such great grandparents. I am excited to see you again and will try to be better at keeping up with your adventures. :)
