Elvis is dead and I don't feel so good myself.

Kate was 20 months old yesterday. Boy, August just zoomed by. Where did it go?

Kate has been learning about counting. Sort of. When we're looking at books, we'll ask her if she can count something, and she'll point to things and say, "One, two, three, five!" and then clap. So cute.

We've been sick. Kate came down with it first, and passed it on to me and Doug. (Yep, we share.) We all ended up staying home from church yesterday. Actually I wasn't feeling too bad by then, but I didn't feel up to taking Kate, and I didn't think she should be going to the nursery sick (though, come to think of it, that's probably where she picked it up in the first place). So we stayed home and recuperated. Kate has developed a violent aversion to having her nose wiped. She screams, she struggles, she runs the other way. Nose-wiping has become a three-person operation. (That's one wiper, one wipee, one human vise grip.)

The Bishop asked me if I could print out some of the photos that I took when I was in Young Women's to replace the very outdated photos that are currently up in the display case outside his office. I put this together yesterday:

(If you look closely, you can see Kate in the bottom right picture!) I'm not working on my commercial stuff on Sundays, so it was fun to putter around with something else for a while. It kind of reminds me of a movie poster. I used a paper from Veronica Ponce's "Cottage Bluff" kit that is free at Two Peas here.

I love your poster! it looks great.

Kate is getting so big. I love watching Libby play with her little people. she's so cute manipulating them and having them talk to each other. I think Kate and Libby could be good friends. ;)

Excellent poster! Good job.

I agree, sometimes being home with an ill or funky feeling child is our worship.
