I was ready to update my swimsuit this year. I decided to use a t-shirt that fit me well for the pattern for the top. I made it without sleeves to start with, but then decided to add them. I got a pair of biker shorts at Walmart to go with it. I tuck the shirt in when swimming to keep it from floating up. I like the way it turned out, and I love feeling covered when I swim:)
Love the wrinkly t-shirt:) haha I got the fabric and lining fabric at Mill Ends. They are really nice fabrics.

We got a good 4 inches of snow a while back and the kids had a blast making snowmen. The amazing thing to me, (besides their huge snowman) was that there was still snow left on the lawn afterwards. Very unusual:)

Last month Nathan was released from his 7 years of service as Bishop in the church. Another has been called to fill that position and will do a fabulous job. Looking back on those 7 years, alot has happened. When he got called, we had just found out that we were going to have another baby-Jed. We had also just started to add a living room onto the house. And...we had just bought a bus on ebay to fix up and take on a family church history tour to Nauvoo. What a time! It's been a wonderful 7 years having Nathan able to serve in that capacity and our family has received many blessings because of it.
Last day as bishop
It's a rare opportunity to be released by your younger brother who got called to be the stake president.
Nathan's counselors were a huge help and comfort to him. We are so grateful for them and their goodness!
our family about 8 months after the call:
Our family now:
