Just posting our family pictures that Dan took with self timer back when I was only 20 weeks. We debated taking them at all because I wanted to be either more pregnant, or less pregnant, but we did them anyway--right in the middle of the is-she-chubby-or-pregnant stage.
Also, here is the card we put with our family picture.
-2016 was a year full of ups and downs.
My weight went up, and dans sure went down.
-That might be because...maybe just maybe,
that dan goes running, and I'm having a baby!
-The year was full of laughter and fun,
and living in Provo, means so much sun.
-We learned how to manage work and play,
by going swimming nearly every day.
-Stori became a little fish in the water.
And Sylvie became our thrill seeking daughter
-Dan had a fantastic lawyer job
which is significantly better than being in the mob.
-Mel won a championship in volleyball,
but being pregnant she kinda had to crawl.
-the girls started dance; jazz and ballet,
They love it so much and wish it was everyday.
-we enjoyed time with family near and far,
And got to travel to see them in our new car.
-Sylvie wants so badly to be in school,
But we practice at home, and she ain't no fool.
-Stori learned to ride her new bike,
And we started the tradition, "on Wednesday's we hike."
-we love it here in Provo, yes we do,
and our kids became fans of the great BYU!
-This poem seems to be losing its jive, so I'll end it by naming our
2016 top 5

It was a very last minute photo shoot, but the weather was nice, and the kids were willing to work for licorice, so it was great! :)
