Skype + Family + Friends = Awesome

I receive a web cam for my birthday (over 6 months ago) but just used our computer to fully skype the other day.  
It was so fun.  Ashby just loved it.  I kind of want everyone to use it.  It's just excited to be able to see who you're talking to.



Although, I can imagine a few times when seeing who you a talking to might be rather...inconvient.  haha (thinking of a time when skyping with my mother-in-law, "oh Cheryl, I didn't know you were there...." )

I guess that is probably a technology that will one day be available in every phone.  Just like one day (soon) everyone really will have their own lap top (or mac book or Ipad or netbook). 

Weird.

But I like Skype.  We were able to skype with some of our favorite people.  They are family and our friends.  We used to do everything together.  Then.  They moved.  But we all have survived.  We miss them.  And may be planning a trip to California later this year just because they will be there.  Until then we will probably learn to like Skype a lot.  

But probably NOT as much as this:

HA! That comic made me laugh. I used skype once... I never really got into it. Not sure why. Maybe I didn't know many other people that were using it?

I'm so happy you finally got it working!! hooray!! Now you know why I was so pushy about it! :) It really really does make us feel like we're in the room with you, instead of the other side of the country. Love you guys so much, let's skype soon!! And the comic really is funny...

We never used Skype until Dean went to Austria last Fall--then it was great to have and made him seem much less far away. BUT, trying to get 5 kids to take turns talking to their Daddy is anything but relaxing for the mom.

Those pics of Ashby and Henry were cute. We'll have to get them together again some time soon. (Maybe not this coming week though--I have a pretty busy week, so we'll have to see.)

Never have skyped but I should. So you should totally come to Hawaii. You will never want to leave. Plus how fun to catch up. Sorry we didn't touch bases in Utah. Rusty's family keeps us pretty busy when we are there. My cell is 562-299-2765. Call me when your coming or whenever!
