FC: John Carroll
1: Molly and Becca are my happy thoughts. They bring so much sunshine, laughter and joy into our home. I'm always fascinated by their wild imaginations. They inspire me to be daring, take chances and dream. I am so grateful for my little giggly girls. Life would not be the same without them.
3: John Carroll was a pioneer in his own right- he was very American and was the first bishop to be elected by priests. He was seen by his community as a friend and equal and this helped Carroll encourage others to deepen their faith. Carroll had a different take on religion and the church than had previously been seen; he brought the church into a more modern age, one of knowledge and higher education and religious awareness. | Breaking ground for John Carroll University | early picture of Carroll College

13: Friends | Best
14: I met my best friend freshman year during Mrs. Kitchen's math class. I know I drive her crazy but she loves me anyway. She took me to my first two concerts, Adam Lambert and Taylor Swift. I tell her everything and I'm so glad I have her.
16: Kendra, Beth and Leah had a blast on their trip to Colorado this summer. Kendra just got her drivers license and was in the mood for a road trip so they all packed up and left for the open road with Colorado in their sights. It was hard to see my little girl drive away, she is an adult now and its time to let her go. I'm glad they had fun and arrived home safe. She'll always be my little girl...

19: We all had a blast at the 4th of July beach party in San Diego this year. Kelly won the watermelon eating contest and Parker experienced fireworks for the very first time. It was great to spend time with so many wonderful friends. We can't wait to do this again next year.
24: 6/12/12 | Our Annual Family Reunion was fantastic this year! We had so much fun playing games, telling stories and eating lots of great food. My favorite part was listening to all of the grandparents tell stories about their childhood, boy how things have changed. It makes me grateful to live in such convenient times. I will always cherish the memories we create at these special events. I hope everyone had as much fun as we did. Until next year... | FAMILY
27: Car packed, camping gear loaded, coffee in hand and ready to hit the road...and we're off! The kids didn't sleep a wink last night, they were so excited about the trip they stayed up helping Dad pack the car. We've been looking forward to having some time together and I think this was just the thing we needed. A long, long drive. | Colorado Here We Come!
28: Play time at The Jones house. Parker, Kim and Andy had a blast playing tag and hide and go seek now they're all tuckered out and ready for nap time...
30: Andy and Sarah's first day back at school. I can't believe Andy is in Kindergarten and Sarah is in First Grade this year. My little babies are growing up too fast. This is going to be a great year!

34: We had a wonderful Thanksgiving this year. The whole family came over and I prepared my very first turkey and it was a success! This year we thought it was important to give back so after dinner we all went to serve Thanksgiving dinner to those less fortunate. This was the best part of the day. We all decided that serving the homeless will become a new family tradition.
37: Laura is growing up so fast. crawling around getting into anything and everything. Before you know it she'll be walking.
39: Taylor's first Christmas was a memorable one. All of the family came over Christmas morning and we enjoyed opening gifts and eating lots of yummy treats. Later that evening we joined all of the neighbors on a Christmas carol sing along. It was magical.
