Earlier this month the most amazing little boy turned 6. Ben came into my life as my first grand child. I loved being at his birth. His mom was a champ! This sweet, happy baby has grown into a sweet happy boy. His Aunt Lilli cried when she found out he was going to be… Continue reading Happy Birthday Ben!
Our missionary has been gone 2 weeks now. We miss her. Nothing is the same without her. For example: Lilli and I went to the Regional Thespian Competition. We rode the bus to Eugene. I spent the day judging tech entries. Lilli spent the day competing. She did a great job for her first competition. … Continue reading Week 2 – A week of Learning
What a week! Here is what you missed. I missed Lilli going to SnoBall... I was working. She went with her friend Zoe… A girl in her choir came over with her sister to help Lilli get ready.

I really should do better at it though, or Family Friday will begin to get rather boring! Perhaps what I should do is… Continue reading From Mama Bear to Mama Swan
We began 2018 by celebrating with friends... ... and family. I delivered a back drop that Hannah and I painted and picked up some things we are borrowing for Lion King, JR. I felt like I was driving down the road with a zoo! Those are the Rhinos and giraffes behind me. LOL. I am… Continue reading Beginning a New Year – It’s a Zoo!

What a great week! John returned from visiting his parents. His mom gave him this beautiful tea cup owned by his Great Grandma Lillian Brockbank. He had a good visit with his family.

Meanwhile, John went to Springville to visit family for the week. He went to visit and to help his siblings with some family things. He helped his… Continue reading Christmas is Coming
