BOISE-- With paintings, family photos and plaques, Idaho lawmakers who virtually live at the Capitol this time of year have personalized their offices, providing a home away from home while conducting the people's business.

Adornments on senators' and representatives' walls reflect who they are, where they're from, and often, how they legislate. Occasionally, they offer a touching insight into important events in their lives.

Rep. Maxine Bell has a colorful print of Logan, Utah, where she was born. Her dad, Max Toolson, died of cancer there when she was just eight.

House Majority Leader Mike Moyle's office is full of "dead stuff" -- skunks, wolves, elk and birds.

And Senator Sheryl Nuxoll of Cottonwood shows off photos of her son at the 2011 ceremony in Rome where he became a priest.
