Friends and Family Tag

Rules of this Tag:
1. Answer the questions about the list of friends and/or family on your blog.
2. If you don’t have 18 names answer the question about the next name that you have not had a question for on your list.
3. Tag 5 people.

--When did you first meet the 1st person on your list?
Like Melinda, I met Cousin Abby a long time ago, but I'm not nearly as sure of the date as she is.

--What do you like about the blog of the 3rd person on your list?
I love how often Ashley includes Joseph in her pictures and posts. I don't always get Josh's name in, let alone his picture. Way to go, Ashley!!

--What do you like best about the 5th and 6th people on your list?
Several years ago, now, I had the opportunity to spend several days in the home of Uncle Ken and his family. It was great to hang out with my cousins, but I particularly remember the peaceful feeling, the warmth of the spirit that settled on their house, all the time.
Esther and I had many memories together growing up (our moms being so close and all), and I've always loved how energetic she is; and how she focuses the energy into accomplishing the goals she sets.

--How long have you known the 9th person on your list?
Oooh, I haven't actually met Jessica. She's Josh's only first cousin, and she lives too far away to visit, so I'm afraid I'm not aquainted with her at all.

--What impresses you about the 11th and 12th people on your list?
Kathy has an amazing talent at the piano, and her voice is devine! She's also impressed me with her strength in dealing with the grief of losing a loved one.
Melinda, oh, the things I could tell!! Mel doesn't just impress me, no, she astounds me with her good cheer, upbeat attitude, and smiling disposition. She and I had our moments growing up, but she's always been the one to see the bright side first.

--What is a memory you have with the 16th person on your list?
Way back when I was a snotty teenager, I went to visit Melinda at BYU Idaho. Because there was a shortage of beds, I spent the night at Rachel and Brandon's house. It was just after Jenna was born, and Rachel and I went upstairs to tidy up her new bedroom. I remember organizing tiny pink dresses in the slightly triangular room, and sighing over the perfect crib and teddy bears. Rachel told me my chance would come, and we went back downstairs to bake cookies.

--Say something nice about the 18th person on your list.
In one of the more recent posts, I have to say I am sooo JEALOUS of how great Sarah F. looks in her pregnancy. I didn't look that good (thus the reason there are no pictures of me during that time). They say a women is most beautiful when she's pregnant, and Sarah is the perfect example.

I think I'm out of people to tag, OH NO!
Just in case, I'll tag:
Grandma and Grandpa
Sarah H.
Mom and Dad M.
