Myra is 6!

Myra had her birthday on Saturday! She is now 6! We had a great day preparing our eggless chocolate cake, her favorite mac&cheese, Steak, & carrots dinner for our family celebration. Myra got to get some fun balloons and she decorated our dinning area for the perfect Myra style Party. She laid out a great party dress, a white button up sweater, sparkley high heel shoes, and white shoulder purse for the occassion. Luckily I was able to talk her out of wearing the nice dress ansomble to do all the baking. Myra asked us to all sit down before her, and wait for her to enter the room for dinner. She came up with this tradition all on her own. She must truly have royal blood.....or at least she thinks she does. After cake and dinner we opened Myra's gifts. Blaise was very excited to give her some new Troy and Gabriella dolls. The Party was a smashing success. WE all enjoy a good family party.

Happy Wedding

Here are some of Dianne, Harry, and Sam! ...................Well, and Hans and Sara's fam.

Home Time

My brother Sam called me on a wed., March 4 to let me know that on Saturday, March 7th, he would be getting married to Dianne Beven, whom I hadn't yet laid eyes on. Now, I knew it would be coming, as they have been talking about wedding bells for sometime. I just didn't know that Russ would be able to find some sky miles and get me to Utah in the spur of the moment.... for cheap. It is a very long, but short story. Short in days, and long in happenings. The weekend was full of talk talk talking with everyone possible, shop shop shopping with mom, (boy does she look great in her new cloths), tears for joy and saddness, Lots of loud laughter, SISTERS, BROTHERS, deserts, big trucks, driving, singing, great dancin', music, serinades by brother, solo piano recitels by Gabe and by Lexie, cameras, guns--a LOT of guns, hugs, kisses, games, fun, freezing windy wind, cooking, junk food, Real food, Late Late nights of gigling, LOVE, generosity, early mornings, sleeplessness, and very happy memorable moments.................ooops, and of course, A WEDDING! I loved it. The two, very short days were filled with much that I enjoyed and needed. I really love my family.
