  1. We have the same amount of space in our garage with the cars. It's tricky! I won't admit how many times we've had to have some sort of minor body work.

  2. I love that your kids are working on mastering your signature. Mine have done the same and sadly, I find it to come in quite handy. I'm considering giving personalized stamps of peoples signature to new mothers for baby shower gifts. I am so done signing everything around here!

  3. Does Clair know that the lead singer for Imagine Dragons, Dan is L.D.S. and I believe one more band member is too. Dan was in my old ward in Vegas. He comes from an awesome family, he's a great guy too! Love the band, lucky her!

  4. Okay, strange question, where did that cute kiddo get his I heart Old People sweatshirt? My 18 year old son just adores his "old people" as he lovingly refers to his grandparents! He would love that hoody!
