Kaitlyn's 1-year pics

Since we are in Boise this weekend for Chris' farewell, we decided to take family pictures while we're here.  This will be the last time for 2 1/2 years that the twins will be in any family group photos, so we thought we'd make the most of it.  While here, we asked Lynn to take some photos of Kaity, too, since we're so close to her first birthday.

72 - hour Sanity - Week 4

Whenever I go to Target, I always check out their Dollar section; they always have great stuff!  This week I bought some coloring books and flash cards to keep the little one entertained in case of emergency.  Also going in are some crossword puzzles for me and Jared, and a deck of cards in each bag (we're really big gamers at our house, so a deck of cards can keep us occupied for hours).  Usually you don't think of entertainment when you think of emergency preparedness, but think of how bored you get while waiting for a table at a restaurant and then throw in some panic/boredom/fear/etc from an emergency and you'll see why this is a good idea.
