Happy25th birthday Jessie!

Jessie is the most amazing, wonderful, daugher. She has always been kind and good to her family. She always wants to do what is right and the Lord has blessed her. She has a wonderful  husband and now the mother of a beautiful daughter Norah. I hope that Norah give Jessie the kind of Joy I have had being her mother. We love you Jessie!!

Happy Birthday Mom. I miss you!!

“Motherhood is the greatest potential influence either for good or ill in human life. The mother’s image is the first that stamps itself on the unwritten page of the young child’s mind. It is her caress that first awakens a sense of security; her kiss, the first realization of affection; her sympathy and tenderness, the first assurance that there is love in the world. True, there comes a time when Father takes his place as exemplar and hero of the growing boy; and in the latter’s budding ambition to develop manly traits, he outwardly seems to turn from the more gentle and tender virtues engendered by his mother. Yet that ever-directing and restraining influence implanted during the first years of his childhood linger with him and permeate his thoughts and memory as distinctively as perfume clings to each particular flower.” 

David O. McKay

My mother passed away 14 yrs ago. I still miss her and feel her powerful influence in my life daily. I pray that I will honor her by living a Christlike life. She was amazing. Love you mom!!

Family is the best!

We went to Thanksgiving point to meet up with Barb, Ben, Amberly, Cami and their kids for lunch. We had a great time. Barb, Amberly and Ben came up for Dallan's graduation for the Utah University. Way to go Dallan. I am sure you and Cami are soooooo excited. Proud of you!

Cabin trip

Scott and I went to the cabin for a few days. We went on a 6hr 45 min ride all over the mountain. We went to several ponds and lakes. It was so fun to be in this beautiful world God made for us. Sometime it's great to get away.

Norah and the dress I made for her.
