The Closest Thing to a Family "Portrait" We're Gonna Get

The quintessential us: Oliver smiling cheese-ely, Isa showing off, Robert being lovable, April grinning nervously (b/c she feels fat in pictures, OK all the time), Eliza-Jane being gorgeous, Horatio trying to get away, and Angel being cool, just cool, dude. My Uncle Kearney got to come by for a short visit; we enjoyed his company immensely & tried to convince him to stay, but he had to get home, so we got a few good pictures. I'll post more later, including some great shots of "Camel Kearney".

Worth Doing

This year I have cleverly devised an excel spreadsheet that has all of the scriptures to be read in 1 year. I am charging my family (Robert, I, Angel, and Oliver)(is that grammatically correct?) to use and keep up with it. Robert, at least is very excited! Considering that every Sunday is a catch up day, I think we can do it. If we do, we will have read the complete King James Bible, The Book of Mormon, The Doctrine & Covenants, and the Pearl of Great Price before the year is out. I've also added memorizing the Articles of Faith, reading talks from the Prophet, reading your Patriarchal Blessing (if you have one), and special reading close to Christmastime. If you'd like to join us, please do so. I will figure out how to post the excel sheet on here if possible; for now, though, you can just email me and I'll send it to you. Also, as this is the first year for such a vast undertaking I don't know how well I organized it or if it is going to be very time intensive or too easy, so I'd love feedback.

And seriously, "Oh, the cleverness of me!" JK!

Happy New Year.

*UPDATE: Let's try this; I posted it on Google docs. Now get to reading, you're behind already!
