Howdy Senator

All ten of Jeff's brothers and sisters were with him last night
 when he won the U.S. Senate seat for the state of Arizona.  
My parents were there too, and nieces and nephews galore.
  We are Jeff's most solid core constituents.  
Don't you think it says something
 when brothers and sisters that know him well support him like that?  
Besides...free food and the chance to get on TV.

 Here, Jeff is being congratulated by retiring Senator Jon Kyl.

Current Senator John McCain is on the right 
and Cindy McCain is on the left wearing bright green leather pants.  
I wonder if Jeff's wife Cheryl will be issued Senator's wife bright green leather pants?  
We can only hope.

 Austin, Alexis, Ryan, Cheryl, Jeff, Tanner and Dallin
 plus an exhausted Mitt Romney  on the left
hovering with a ghostly cardboard presence.

Mitt might be planning a little time off
but
Jeff is already rolling up his sleeves.

My hunky husband Mark, and brothers Jeff and Mike back in the day

At least my choice for senator won. And knowing Jeff, he'll do his darnedest to rein in those crazy Washington people.

Go Jeff!

Yes, at least Jeff won. Your advice is good to put my hand up and look far into the future. I'll try it some day when I quit biting my nails and wiping my eyes. :o{ Tomorrow is another day. Your family is phenomenal.

I'm so glad that Jeff will be in the Senate. Maybe that will be the thing that helps me sleep again :) It was a traumatic night for me. So glad to see your family was all smiles!

Congratulations to Jeff, your family, and the state of Arizona. At least someplace had a reason to cheer last night! I still feel shell shocked.

Anne said...

So glad he won! Love the pictures and his super smile. He'll do great things!

He's so good looking! Yowza! (Oh, yeah...and I'm sure he'll be a good senator, too . . .) :)

Hey! I just thought of something. Does this mean that when I go to DC now he can get me into the Capitol for the non-tourist tour? How 'bout the White House. Is that up for grabs?

I love you Jeff. Need a flunky secretary to file things?

Wow. That is so cool.
Congrats!

You must be a very proud sister! I was happy for you and yours when I saw the results with the help of google.

Holly said...

I was so happy to see the results yesterday morning and find Jeff's name. Soooo, I guess it's kinda like I know one of the Kennedys now, right?

Yeah! He was our bright spot in the election....seems like our only vote who won. Carmona kept creeping us out with the door knocking commercial. We're glad to say we know you and you're his sister. You have a great family!

Sue said...

This is such GREAT news. Makes me happy to think that someone I was excited about won. Even if he's from another stake, he is still a senator, and the country needs him!

Way to go! I got a few calls from his campaign up here in Utah and was annoyed that he wasn't on my ballot.

Tell us more about the food. And Top Lobo Fitness in 1979!
