While we're waiting for the next email or (fingers crossed) a camera memory card sent from Ohio - I thought it would be fun to look back at the days before Nicole left on her mission. So many wonderful angels helped us get ready for the day we would drop her off (literally) at the MTC. Don't forget to read her 1st email from Ohio posted below - she's on fire!
Nicole's friend Kristen holding a phone to her ear...note the multi-tasking abilities - a much needed asset in the mission field!
A Missionary Shower (a new concept for me and a fun idea) thrown by our dear friends Lisa Owens (not pictured because she stayed behind the lens) and Bev McIntyre. We didn't have many pictures because eating and talking were far more enticing options!
Mother's Day 2010 - Nicole and I spoke in Sacrament Meeting (not an easy task for this cry-baby mom). [Note: the fabulous part of being in charge of a blog is that I get to choose the pictures]
