One reason I've found blogging difficult this year is we have way too many photos. Both Bill and Lizzy got new cameras for Christmas. Three cameras in the house make it hard for me to keep track of photos. For instance we had more than 3,000 photos in December. However, this is the sort of tribulation I think I can adjust to. It's nice to have Bill back behind the camera again, check out this great photo he took of Zoey.
Also, the camera came just in time to document the Hull Family's visit. I met Becky in the dorms at the University of Utah in the Fall of 1992, I met Bill the the next day. The three of us have been friends ever since. Becky wrote a great account of their visit in her blog, Holus Bolus.
We celebrated their daughter Helen's 4th birthday during their visit,
as well as our 13th wedding anniversary--both on the same day. We did not draw this heart on the beach, but it was there and it was our anniversary and the sun was setting and why not?
