The Generations Network (the company I work for) just launched a new product a few months ago called MyCanvas ( It is a place where you can print photo books, posters, calendars, etc. using your own pictures. It is pretty similar to SnapFish and other services but the quality is much better. Anyways, we're in the process of adding more and more products. For a short time, you can get 20% off your entire order by using the coupon code MCHOLIDAY. Give it a try!

Also, if you're into Family History try going to Here they have additional project types and templates around documenting and preserving your family history research. The same coupon code should work on this site too.

Please ignore the shameless marketing plug for the company I work for... just thought I would pass on a good deal. I really don't care if you buy anything or not.

That's right... we're all moved in. Thanks for everyone who helped us move. We really appreciate it. Everything went so well and we're so excited and grateful to be in our new house. We love it!

We moved in just in time... It snowed 3 days later.

Halloween 2008

We met up with the Ferre family for the 3rd Annual Ferre Skousen pumpkin carving night. Thanks for the fun-filled, pizza-eating, pumpkin-carving night. This year Cora was a lion. She played the part well and even threw in her own sound effects. We went to the ward's Trunk-or-Treat. Cora is a pro and knows exactly what to do. My favorite part was when she took a piece of candy from her basket and put it into another boy's basket. I guess she just wanted to share the sugar. Way to go, Cora!

Seattle Trip

At the beginning of October we went to Seattle for a week. Nate got to attend a Microsoft conference for work and he took me and Cora with him. We decided to stay a few extra days to see the sites.

Seattle is beautiful and it only rained 2 times while we were there. While Nate was
at the conference, Cora and I roamed the streets of downtown Seattle. We walked through Pike's Market a couple of times, visited the local Gap, and found some good places to eat. Anyways here are a few pictures.

In front of Pike's Market... Nate had some good Clam Chowder there for lunch one day.
