Pickering Ward Babies

                                                                Lately we've had a few Pickering Ward activities where I've been able to steal some pictures of a few of our Ward family babies. Here is Alecia Lai with Parker.  He's the cutie wootiest.  This was at the Relief Society evening a couple of weeks ago.

This is Levi Peary.  He got caught red-handed, or perhaps I should say chocolate-mouthed... at the Linger Longer Luncheon a couple of Sundays ago.

This is Lauren Hall looking a bit surprised at that weird lady flashing lights in her face.  Lauren is going to grow up to be a super model.  I just know it. Look at those big baby blues! She just needs to work a little on her camera presence.

This is Meredith Terranova with her nephew, the youngest Brother Barney.  If I could remember Brother Barney's given name, which may or may not be Spencer, I'd be a lot happier.  It's like taking a botany class and being able to name genus and phylum, but not the common name...  My excuse is that I don't work in Primary or in the Nursery and there are lots of these little ones running around at the moment.  Which is great, by the way.  Don't get me wrong.  I wouldn't be running around myself taking pictures of these little cuties if I didn't think so.

The New Office

Here is my new office. 

 Okay, I have had that stupid picture of Los
Angeles (hanging there on the wall on the right) in storage in the hall closet for years - about 23 years to be exact.  My brother gave it to me after I moved to Los Angeles - as a joke because he has an odd sense of humor!  It's now a bit of an oddity.  We are the Los Angeles office, after all, and we do transportation and traffic planning & engineering.  But the photo is so out of date, it looks like a 20+ year-old postcard and elicits humorous comments from the engineers.
Here is my office with the file cabinets standing guard.  They've measured the window for blinds, but they haven't been installed yet.

 Here is my messy desk.  Brian said it was comforting to see my old beat up "visitor's" chair after the move.  With all the changes I had to agree.
The best part of the move is that Barbara's office is now in my line of sight, as opposed to being next door.  We get to wave at each other and giggle when the sensor suddenly turns out my lights in the middle of the day while I'm sitting at my desk typing away and being awesome. 

This ends our tour.  It's still not perfect.  I have some art to hang still.  But it's getting there!
