I've never actually watched this event at a track meet before, and I was really impressed with how far those kids could throw.
Here is Laura showing how it's done:

Thomas William John was born to Carrie and T. Anthony John on December 17, 2009. He's a cutie. He looks so much like Carrie and yet he looks so much like Tony. It's crazy! He's a great addition to the family! It doesn't feel all that much different with him here. He feels like he has always been here.
Melanie Joy Crane was born on December 22, 1989. We love Melanie. She's always keeping us entertained with her jokes, and her fun personality. She's just crazy and absolutely hilarious! No more "teen angst" for this girl, seeing as she turned 20. She spent the last few days of her teenage life getting out all of her "angst."
Thomas Anthony John was born on December 29th. Tony's a lot of fun. He loves the Red Sox, and pretty much all sports. He knows his stats. Tony is a great new dad to little Will. Carrie, Tony, and Will just moved here from Springfield, MO. Tony is starting his new job soon and I'm sure he'll be great!
Linda Crane was born on December 30th a few years ago. What to say about our wonderful mother? Words can't describe. She's always there for us. She's extremely patient with her five daughters and she always knows just what to say. Sometimes we don't want to hear what she has to say, but 99.9% of the time she's right! Extremely kind and funny, we're lucky to have her as a mom!

I noticed a lot of these have to do with food or music...so I guess those are two things I like a lot.
We had a fun thanksgiving. Carrie and Tony came here from Springfield and Melanie flew in from Utah. We're excited for everyone to come home for Christmas!

This is Me and my mom, and my friend Mairin and her mom. We were diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes within a couple of years of each other. I was in 3rd grade, and she was in 5th.
LtoR: Mairin, Ellie, Katie, Davey, Laura, Clare, Nora
We all tie dyed shirts, and put our nicknames on the back and various other things such as "DIEabetes."
Here is a picture of the beautifully decorated cake for my birthday by Melanie. Decorating cakes was one of the many things she did while working in the bakery.
When Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince hit theaters, Melanie and I, and a few friends went to the midnight premiere. Only a few of us dressed up, but we looked good! Here is a picture of Caleb (Ron), Melanie (Harry), and Me (Hermione).
This is our group in the theater before anyone else showed up in it. We got there pretty early.
We Love the Royals!!!
Growing up in Kansas City, I've been a Kansas City Royals fan most of my life. A lot of people don't know this, but I really enjoy watching baseball games. Especially the Royals. They may not always win, in fact it's kind of a rare thing, but I'm still a loyal fan. This summer, we went to quite a few games.
Melanie and I
Melanie and I again.
Melanie and I yet again. I think people sitting around us got annoyed because we were pretty loud and excited fans :)
Singing "Take Me Out to the Ball Game" during the 7th inning strrreetch!
We often got to games early because of T-Shirt Tuesdays! T-Shirt Tuesday is usually one tuesday a month, when the first 10-20 thousand fans get a free t-shirt. They're some of my favorite times to go to Royals games. In fact, in all of these pictures, we're sporting T-shirt Tuesday t-shirts. Sometimes we'd get there a long time before the game started and so we'd have some time to kill. This is how Melanie and I would spend it. Walking around Kauffman stadium, taking pictures, etc. Above is a picture of Melanie "supporting" Zack Greinke.
And here he is stepping on my head...
Melanie and I made up a lot of differnet cheers and things we would do to pass the time and enjoy ourselves during the games. Usually when we walked through the gates to get into the games melanie yelled, in a voice I can't describe, "I Love the ROYALS!!" So now it's something we all say frequently.
EFY and Youth Conference
Here's a picture of Me and a couple of girls from our stake at a dance.
This is a picture from the last night of EFY. Ashley, Me, Kate, and Brynn. We were suite mates. This was in our little "living room." Ashley and Brynn are from Missouri and shared one room. Kate is in my stake and we shared the other. It was a fun but extremely exhausting week.
It's a Boy!
We had a mini Crane reunion for a week during August.
We had a sisters baby shower for Carrie on one day. Above is the delicious cake we had decorated.
All of the sisters with the presents.
What a lucky baby! He's going to be one well dressed boy.
While we were all together we got some sister pictures taken. (It's kind of blurry because I had to scan the picture into the computer)
After we got our pictures taken, we went out to eat at Red Robin. Yum! This is all of us in the car on the way there.
We got balloons at Red Robin and took pictures trying to be Carrie. (she also has a balloon under her shirt)
Then we released them into the wind in honor of Brandi.
Another thing we did was before Carrie could come. We went to a Water Park.

Carrie's 23rd birthday
