Winter 2008

I'm doing a little backtracking. I spent several hours putting all of these smile boxes together and then lost them. Sorry they are out of order but enjoy!

Paul and Cyndi were gracious enough to have me stay with them. I had so much fun going to parks, eating sweet potatoes fries, (don't knock it until you've tried them - so much better than traditional fries), going to the library, walking on campus, going for a walk around a beautiful fish pond, enjoying ALL the blooming trees and flowers in their brilliant colors of pink and white, just laughing, playing hide and seek (my favorite), talking, putting together a computer cabinet until 1:00 in the morning, sleeping in and just being with my cuddlebugs!

A Dangerous Weapon or Beauty Enhancer? You decide.

Ever since I was fourteen and started wearing mascara, I've had to use an eyelash curler since I inherited my mom's straight lashes. Over the years as I've been curling them the thought has occured to me, "wouldn't it be awful if this gadget ripped out my lashes?" Well I've been safe for the last 36 years. A couple of months ago I was in a hurry getting ready for work. My hand slipped and the next thing I knew my eyelash curler was full of MY long eyelashes. I thought, "Well, I did it. I hope they grow back, so I don't look like a chemo patient for the rest of my life. I do have some false eyelashes from my "dress up make up" that I could try and put on. " After 15 minutes of trying to get the glue and the lashes in place, I said, "To heck with it". I'll just wear eyeliner and my glasses instead of my contacts for awhile! Just so you know, eyelashes do grow back but SLOWLY!

Happy New Year!

We survived the annual Christmas picture! As we are taking the pictures, Tyler leans over to Bradley and says, " I hate this!" I lean over and say, "Smile, it's only once a year!" As you can see from the pictures it was a beautiful clear day. In Utah that doesn't mean it was WARM and clear, usually COOOLD and clear. I'm surprised our breath didn't show up in the pictures. (It felt like 10 deg. with the wind! I was jealous of all the So. Cal Christmas card pictures.) We do enjoy the beautiful scenery the snow blesses us with, and I don't think Bradley could survive without snow skiing every winter.

We do want to take this opportunity and thank EVERYONE for their Christmas cards. We enjoy getting your letters and keeping updated with your family. After last year, I decided to send our family Christmas cards the cheaters way, by way of blogging. 2008 bought many joys and blessings to our family. Family vacations, family reunions, Tyler coming home from his mission, Lisa going off to college, visiting our children and grandchildren in Mississippi and Dutch John, going to Hawaii, working, reorganizing, and enjoying life. Again, as with each year, we wish each of you a safe and peaceful new year and may the love of our Savior, Jesus Christ dwell in your heart. If you are EVER in Provo, please give us a call. With only 4 people in a 6 bedroom house, we always have room for guests.
