I saw this on a friend's blog and thought I would post it here. No pressure.

Actually, I take that back. Pressure. BIG pressure! I want to see your comments!

This is a "shout out" for memories.

Here are the directions:
1. As a comment on my blog, leave one memory that you and I had together. It doesn’t matter if you knew me a little or a lot, anything you remember!

2. Next, re-post these instructions on your blog and see how many people leave a memory about you. It’s actually pretty funny to see the responses. If you leave a memory about me, I’ll assume you’re playing the game and I’ll come to your blog and leave one about you. If you don’t want to play on your blog, or if you don’t have a blog, I’ll leave my memory of you in my comments.

Melanie, here are just a few that I have:
*At your baby shower for Lauren, seeing your excitement to be having a little girl!
*When you and Larry bought us all four of the children’s scripture readers so we could read with Aidan and then wouldn’t let us give you any money for them.
*When we were moving and you watched Aidan all day for us while we cleaned…and he had a huge gross toddler poopy diaper that got everywhere. You washed Aidan’s clothes and put some of William’s on him and acted like it was all no big deal! Amazing!
*Seeing how ready you always are to serve others. Really, you’re quite an example to me.

You were my first "real" visiting teacher that actually came every month and acted like you cared. We didn't know eachother for very long before I moved from Oxnard, but I have always been impressed by that short time. I remember how excited you were when you "finally" got pregnant with your 2nd baby after trying for awhile. I was so very happy for you.

Where do I begin?...

The first time we met and Larry and baby Hadland came over for dinner after Stk. Conf. for lasagna in SB on our little porch...the rest is history.
Coming to kidnap you on Paseo Ortega, and going to get a deal at Valu +, grabbing an ice cream at Dairy Queen, going for a walk, going to get the perfect color paint for our new homes. We were always so excited. Having choir practice in your front room, listening to Raffi and dancing to Baby Beluga, stealing home grown tomatoes out of your wonderful garden, watching you cook dinner in your kitchen while you listened to some sort of classical music, seeing you and the kiddies at the library for story time, talking for hours about our families, the gospel, great books, great decorating ideas, great recipes, and life...I love you my friend!

I remember both of us sitting around big and pregnant for Hadland and Syd in that little apartment in NY. I remember you taking that castor oil hoping that he would come but he was to stubborn to come until he was ready..He is like that now? HEHE. Do you also remember when you where over at my house and we where measuring all the men from tallest to shortest because EJ and TJ wanted you him too. I actually think I have a picture of this. HEHE. Memories....we do miss you guys tons!

Let's see, of you it would have to be your wonderful broccoli salad, and seeing your beautiful smile in Sacrament mtg. I don't know why, but I always remember you smiling ALL the time.

BTW I love the revamp of your blog! It looks great!

My very first memory of You! First of all, I was worried sick about you before i even knew you because you had to get lost with my brother in a blizzard on Christmas Eve/morning!! Then I saw your shining smile and thought- what great teeth! You know me and teeth.Score one for you... and you didn't want to kill Larry for taking you on a 26 hour car ride- score 2 for you!! I knew I loved you from the minute I met you and was so glad that you picked MY brother so we could be sisters! Love you!

ok, i'm a little late but i'll play.
so many to choose from. perhaps some of my favorite were our wonderful talks while out walking with the kids or after a session of stake conference, or sitting on your couch for a little while. just sharing, talking, uplifting, encouraging, and influencing each other. those were wonderful days, my friend. i miss you!
