This is the picture from the day Ashley was born. Yes, those were the actual costumes we wore around trick- or-treating. I was just talking about how in Idaho you had to plan your costume so that your coat could fit under it. I think they even glowed in the dark :) What good memories . . .
I can still remember seeing her in the hospital and thinking that she was so tiny, and we better not stay at the hospital too long, or else everyone will run out of candy to give us! I'm so glad Ashy Pants completed the fam- it just wouldn't be the same without her. I still remember taking her to preschool and kindergarten after we ate breakfast at school in the mornings. Sometimes, we would see Brian in the cafeteria--after he went to seminary. I used to drag her along on my babysitting jobs so she could play with the kids and I could just watch tv. She came in useful on many occasions--oh how time flies . . .
