The Rest of March..............

I look pretty happy here, huh?
This was on the 9th of March, after my 4 new stents were put it.
Things went downhill from here......
I just haven't felt normal, and I don't like it.
Sometimes I wonder if I'll ever feel "normal" again.

I read this quote this morning.  I need to take it to heart.

My hope is that when the tide of disappointment and misfortune turns toward us—and from time to time it surely will—that we will remember that when we look toward the Lord in faith, He will guide us through life’s difficulties—whatever they may be. - Elder Todd Christofferson

Here's to looking up, and feeling better, and going forward.

Zac and CJ got a new Ranger (and we bought their old one)
This will be a much better FIT for them.
CJ bought some Easter decorations for Tenzin's gravesite.  On one of the warm sunny days, they congregated there.  We happened to be going for a ride, and popped up to the cemetery and there they were !
Treyson's first football game.
This is a comp team made of up of 5,6,7th graders.
This game at West HS was against the Utah Elite team, which happens to have some other Morgan boys on it.
The game didn't go so well, and ended part way through the 3rd quarter.  Bad Deal.
"Look Thatch - there's Treyson !"
Afterwards we went to Crown Burger, and Thatcher and Grandma Ben had a fun time playing THUMB WARS.
We managed to get down to see Landon and Kacey compete in the Open a couple of times.  These two kiddos, spend a lot of time at the BOX, and they are pretty comfortable here, wouldn't you say?
Kacey - being judged by a piece of bacon?  HAHA
She did really well - 13 minutes I think.
I think this girl is going to be a CROSSFITTER when she grows up :)
Landon - 17.5
He ended in 12 minutes +
I never did ask him if he tried it again, or how he came out against his friends at West Haven Crossfit.
All of us, cheering him on.
This little one was tired.  She's still a HAIR STROKER.  So cute.  Loved her pink shoes !
Zac made a big box to fit on the front on the tractor, and it's made it really easy to haul the piles of sticks to the burn pile. 
We started it on fire on Saturday.  We thought we had better, since it was a "good" burn day, and it seems they are few and far between.
For the Rich Women March Birthday Luncheon we surprised LuAnn, and had a quilt tying party.  Autumn (Kelsee's daughter) was awesome at it.  She did such a great job, and helped a lot.

Bright and Lola
Their doggie is a hit !
Sleepy head - Payson
Some of the Easter decorations.
Wish we would have more of these WARM days.
Tagg and Grandma Shirlee at the football game.
Kacey and Brightyn - I think at the zoo
Payson (the show off) at his Preschool bowling party.
He had kindergarten roundup, and is so excited to start Kindergarten in the fall.
Cam got her ear pierced !
Cam and cousin Hannah
This is probably the BEST picture ever of Barclay.  He is usually so hard to photograph because he is so black.  Such a sweet little doggie, and he's been there from Camryn since she moved back to AZ in 2008

From 2008 - Her new best friend.....
Barclay went to Heaven on March 24th
A sad time for the family :(
Kacey's comments say it all.
So cute !

One year ago - the dance began.

Last year, I came home from work, and as I walked in the house everyone was there in the kitchen with expectant smiles on their faces......    I was met with, "Guess what?  We're getting a new baby brother!".

I can only tell you that my heart lept in my chest - literally.

You would think that with house building......... and a myriad of other reasons, that my reaction might not have been the pure joy and happiness that flowed through my body.

And so our adventure of "Expecting Tenzin" began.

It is truly a good thing that we don't know what lies ahead.....

A beautiful 9 months........and a precious 11 days....

We might have missed the pain..........
but we would have missed the dance

And what a beautiful dance it was
(and will be again someday)

Little Things...........

You really can't tell by this picture, but the sun was really shining, and it was snowing !  We were dropping Thatch off at Preschool.  Roger drew a picture when he was in grade school, probably about 2nd grade, and the sun was shining, and it was either raining or snowing.  I guess the kids made fun of him, saying that could never happen.  I think the teacher stood up for him.  Now whenever it is sunny and snowing, Rog always points it out, and says, "See !  It can snow and sunshine at the same time"!
This was a fun night
Minion, Minion, Minnie
This is the machine I was put in on the day I had my stress test.
First they injected radio isotope? in me, then were able to "view" it inside my heart. 
Payson's birthday  - a new bike !
Fun times with the boy cousins
Thatcher's Valentine's Day Card
These two got a new puppy.
She is a weener heeler mix

They sure love her. 
We went down to see if we could see the Great Gray Owl in Mtn. Green.
We were too late, it had flown away. 
5 years old !
Bright is funny.  She always has to wear this beenie when she goes to bed. 
Cam and her new white bass guitar
She is loving playing it, learning new songs, and going to lessons twice a week. 
CJ went to Hawai for a week, and everymorning I would go over and get the kids breakfast. 
Tagg's St. Patrick's Day story
Dr. Suess Day at Preeschool. 
Zac and the boys went down with me to watch 17.2 at West Haven Crossfit.
We ate at Burger Bar first
Bright must have been really tired, because she fell asleep in my arms, then I laid her down. 
These kids had fun playing wall ball with balloons
Landon doing toes to bar
box jumps
Kacey with 17.1 (I think)
Thatcher's Preschool
My latest stents..........
They did 4 more on March 9th.
Sure hope this fixes me up !
