Happy Mother's Day!

 This year we decided to go up to Lehi and take our lap top so we could hook it up to my Dad's TV and everyone could see Shayne when we Skyped with her.  It was great.  We also Skyped on my Ipad with the Wells' family from Hawaii,  Joel's Ipad with Brad, Ashley and Henry from California and on my Dad's Ipad we were Skyping Andy, Sarah and kids from Texas .  It was awesome!  At one point Sloan Skyped Ashley on his phone so she could show Shayne her engagement ring and tell her that she was getting married.  We had the rest of us in my parents living room...  Jan and Andy...Steve, Juanelle, all the boys and Jenna...Paula, Charles and all the Rogel kids and Grandma and Grandpa and us.  It was CRAZY!  Crazy fun.  Officially everyone except Brady was there.  She had to work.  Don't you just love technology?  I do!  We were able to talk to Shayne for about 3 hours.  I was great.  She only has 4 months left.  It was a good way to get her motivated to work hard for the last part of her mission.  Her mission has ALWAYS been exciting for us.  We have never cried or missed her from sadness.  Even when we dropped her off at the MTC I think we were the only ones who weren't crying.  We have missed her when we needed someone to quote or guess a line to a movie but when it came to her mission it has always been a family adventure.  Our first Mother's Day was crazy because she had only been there a week and we were told that she wouldn't get to Skype.  So we just talked on the phone.  Little did we know that her bishop said that she could use his computer later that night because he wasn't going to be home so we did get to see her.  It was really nice.  But this Mother's Day was like a huge PARTY!

 Katie is holding up Baby Henry here I think so Shayne can see him.

Andy holding up Gus so Shayne can see him.

Here is Sophie's Selfie with Shayne.  Sophie is the Queen of Selfie's.  I don't know how she does it but she cannot take a bad selfie.  I need to take lessons from her.

 Here is my attempt. YIKES!  Not only is it horrible but I got photo bombed by 2 people in the room and Ashley on the phone.

As far as Mother's Days go I think it will be impossible to top this one.  But I hope they try.
