Blog Addresses...

Layne has asked me to gather blog addresses of everyone in the family, so I can put them up on the side of this blog. If you have a personal blog to add to the list, let me know the address and we'll add it to our list. This may make it easier for some to navigate to everyone's blog and see what's going on. If you have several blog addresses (i.e. from your sisters or daughters) add those too. Thanks!


Wanted, pictures from the Spring Market! Lots of cousins there, I hear!

Anybody know a sister Rogers?

So Babuh and I are at a Wedding in the Mexi Branch.  We sit down to eat some rice, beans and tortillas and the sister missionaries join us at our table.  I smile and nod and ask (like I always do,) "So where are you from?"  The first one says California and we comment that one of our sons is out there.  

Then the second sister says, "North Ogden" and acts like we probably don't know where that is.  Turns out she's Craig Rogers' daughter, knows Clark Skeen, Lana and Shanny Musgrave, Kami Watson, the Winzelers, Megan Hales, Alan Stokes and many others.  

Babuh was very glad to have someone to talk to in English, so they had quite a visit.

Wagon Ride in Blossom

Heidi, Maddee, and I took Hudson and Lily on a wagon ride. They got to see cows and sheep on their ride around Blossom. We made a stop to see Grandma Hales and then went around back to see Grandpa Hales with some baby lambies. Such a fun adventure for these two sweet kiddies! 

Love, Jena

The Hales' Cousins @ Little Mountain

We kept the Hales' family tradition alive this year and went to Little Mountain for Easter. We ate yummy food and the kids went on an Easter egg hunt. It was fun to see everyone and extra fun to have little kids in the family to make things just a little more entertaining! Here are some pics...

It's hard taking pics of the little kiddies!
This is one of our best!

Come on Thompsons!!!

I have the reputation in the Ellis family of calling it like I see it, so here goes. . . Four out of the latest 5 posts have been from the Layne Thompson Family. The rest of you that live in Utah must realize that those of us that don't live in Utah don't see you very often. Take 5 minutes and post some pictures! Thanks to Chrissi, Colby and Mindy, and Cammie and Jordan, for letting us take a look at their new little ones!

A few shots from last week in St George

Ice Cream in Colorado City

Weed, when he figured out that he was going to have to buy lunch for about 15 people

Jena and Tay, Judd and Liz, Lori trying to stay out of the picture

An exciting day at Red Robin. They have bottomless fries there you know

It was great to hang out with some family members


PS, Lori also gave us the latest Heartbound CD. It's excellent. "Chasing Dreams". I particularly liked song #3 (we listened to it about 50 times on the trip). It's a snappy tune and Lori sings the lead, she let's her "Dolly" side come out. Very good.
