Here she is! Violet Elizabeth Evensen arrived on Friday, May 26th. She is posing with her mom and dad in this photo.
The newest member of our family weighed in at 8 pounds 3 ounces and is 20 inches long! She looked very much like her dad, my nephew Nils.
I love the name Violet. She arrived with a full head of blond hair. What a sweetie!
She also has the chubby cheeks that run in our family, as you can see below. Violet is the 5th grandchild and the 3rd little girl of her generation in our family.
There's something wonderful about seeing a man tenderly holding a baby, isn't there?
Welcome to mortality, little Violet. I can't wait to meet you!

|What are you doing, Marianne?|
One of our Senior Engineers, Frank recently left us to pursue other dreams in El Paso, Texas with his family. I was sorry to see him go.
The company held a nice luncheon in his honor the week he left.
|The gang's all here|
We're normally not this serious.

|Livia and Sparkle reading intently|
|This is what kitties do!|
|"I think I can!"|
|A Kitty smaller than the headphones|
I don't think Sparkle knows how lucky of a kitty he is!
He's very cute, and obviously very loved. Sparkle is a very lucky Chinese kitty indeed!
Even Daddy likes him!

|Suria, Carmen, Sabrina and Tiffany|
That leaves me. I've been around the longest now of all the marketing group in the company. It's a weird feeling.
|Tiffany, Nikita and Mengzhao|
|Sabrina - I miss her acerbic wit|
|We sat outside under the awnings|
|We allowed Suria (right) to make some menu choices for us|
|The last, lonely escargot on the above plate got snarfed up quickly|
There was little left after the feeding frenzy.
|The dishes were varied, but each was delicious|
|My second helping of linguini|
Sabrina has been gone a couple of months now. I still miss her. It still seems strange to not see her on the other side of the building, in the Corporate offices.
Hope all is well, my friend.

|My neighbor George looks pretty nifty holding that bouquet!|
My Ward (congregation) is a fun and kind one. We are like a big, extended family and always have a good time together. On Saturday night, we had a dinner - a farewell to the delightful missionary couple from Utah who have been serving us with love and commitment for the last 18 months - as well as a summery fourth of July bash.
|The place was packed! The Allens can be seen standing in the middle, speaking with my neighbor Sheree.|
|View of our table - Amy did the wonderful sunflower centerpieces|
|Our former Bishop, center, and his good wife (in green) were there|
|The atmosphere was festive|
Yes. I have lots of good neighbors!
The Sisters did a couple of numbers, and here the Elders are singing with them as I accompany them. These are such good kids. They brought a wonderful Spirit into my home the night they came over to practice. I love playing for them.
Some of these photos are mine, but I also stole a good deal of them from Maristella Boyle (Thank you!).

Come worship with us on Sundays! You will love having these people in your life!

|Nils and Rachel cut the cake|
Last weekend, they took off to Rachel's hometown of Bend, Oregon, for another reception. This time, it was a more casual open house. It still looks like it was fun.
|The cake looks yummy!|
As there had been a theft of some personal items during the reception in Salt Lake, a high tech security company was enlisted to make sure that didn't happen again!
|Christian looking like a Fed|
My youngest nephew Christian stood guard, taking his job VERY seriously. I love that photo!
The funniest photo, though, is the next one! Late Saturday, after the open house, everyone decided they needed a Walmart run before the return trip to Utah. They didn't want to be breaking the Sabbath unnecessarily.
Rachel thought it would be funny to wear her wedding dress to Walmart.
|Rachel, Nils, Christian and mom Kirsti at the Bend Walmart|
That kinda made my day.
I hope it made you smile as well.
