slides from the storage room

I guess Natalie found these in a box in the storage room at Grandma's house. The storage room with the big icebox we used to tip ourselves into to get popsicles in the summer time. My dad has been scanning them and there are a lot more he says. I think Grandpa took most of these. I love his photographs.

Happy Birthday :)

One of the slides my dad just scanned. More to come, hopefully momentarily...

Celebrating Shelley: April 19, 2011

Lake Tahoe 1956

What to say about Shelley? She has interesting and good things to say. She is a thinker and a reader and always has at least one book close by. She is a people magnet, stylish and charismatic as well as being a compassionate counselor. She is very generous and I don't know anyone who knows Shelley who can't say, "Yes, Shelley gave me this!" She is a doer, a worker and a mover. I never have been too concerned about my age or growing older, I think in part because of a big sister who is a model for "moving through space with beauty and grace". Yes, I believe Shelley just may be ageless. Happy Birthday!!!

yesenia comes to utah!

we had so much fun with yesenia and her friends. they came for conference weekend and we loved getting to hang out with them. Yesenia was really good at relating to Bo and he totally warmed up to her by the end of the weekend, which is impressive, since it takes him a while to get used to people. we also loved listening to general conference and being spiritual feed.

it was super warm on saturday, but then snowed a few inches on sunday. so Bo was outside in shorts in the snow (it's April!).

Maria drank her bottle in the morning while Lili watched. Then she handed her bottle to Lili and Lili drank for a couple minutes then handed it back to Maria. Maria drank and gave it back to Lili. This back and forth went on while the girls lay down snuggling by each other and giggling. It was seriously the cutest thing I have ever seen.
