Memorial for our Angel

A lot of thought and love went into this from Mom and Dad.
I believe the heart beat is Tenzin's actual "line" from the echocardiogram.
The little elephant is Tenzin's symbol - so sweet.
The Mama holding the Baby - Click here to listen to Bette Midler's version, with pics from Dumbo.
This is the song played at Tenzin's graveside service (although it was Allison Krause's version)

11 days was not long enough
And living without you is more than tough
But our love for you will never fade
The imprint on our hearts is forever made
 ~ Christel Rich
Such a cold cold day for placement of the headstone, but Zac and CJ were there, and they got the boys out of school, so everyone could be a part of it. 
A beautiful little memorial for a beautiful PERFECT baby boy.

Puppies Puppies Everywhere

Here's Tallon, spankin' clean just after a bath.
CJ has become good friends with the Labs of Liberty people, and they are going to show her how to train him to be a therapy dog, so she can take him to hospitals, and senior care centers.  She is excited about this. I think it will be so good for her. 
Cute pic of the boys......... who get to...........
Go up to the Labs for Liberty property, and play with the puppies!!
One of the Labs (not these puppies) was not used to kids, so Tagg went up and worked with him, under their instruction.  They want him to come up 2-3 days a week and help them.  He is looking forward to this.  What a wonderful opportunity. 
Even Treyson getting in on some lovin'   :)

OuR LiFe LaTeLy

One of Thatch's masterpieces from Preschool.
I think it's somewhat of a self portrait (with wings?)
Notice the glasses :)
Seems he always has a book in his hands.
This is a GOOD thing !
Payson and Thatcher are playing soccer on the same team.
Here they are practicing before the game. 
So fun to watch them !
Notice Tallon getting watching too :)
Grandma Ben's 80th birthday party was a great success.
We had a great luncheon before the Open House
And the ice cream machine was a total hit.

Bright kept showing me the rainbows her sprinkles made....
She's a sweetie.
One of the signs
And now some videos (below) for your viewing satisfaction (ha!)
You'll get a chuckle.

Our AZ girl :)

She cut 6 inches off her hair !
So pretty, even though it does make her look older.....STOP !!!!
You aren't even 13 yet !!
And after 14 months of braces, they came off !!
She brushed so diligently, and did everything the ORTHO said, and now look what she has?
Beautiful !!

Give and Let Give

There is a new Facebook Group here in Morgan, started by Shersti Walker.  It's called Give and Let Give.  Someone starts by hiding a "gift" somewhere, taking a picture (to hint the location), and then posting it.  First one to go and find and claim the gift, posts that they did, and then it's their responsibility to repeat the process at another location. 
The other night, someone left a prize at the "M".  CJ saw it on FB, and she and Tagg and Tagg's friend and Thatcher RAN to get it.   CJ and thatcher didn't make it to the top, but Tagg and his friend did. 
This picture above shows them walking back down with the prize.  Thatcher is with them at this point.
Wow - Treats, Pop, and a MOVIE !!
Stopping by little Tenzin's gravesite

This is where the PRIZE was.  Yahoo !!
I haven't heard if they have hidden another gift yet.   They sure had fun doing this whole thing.  What a great idea !

A great day - Easter at our home

On Wednesday before Easter, Roger D. called me at work, and said, let's have an Easter Egg Hunt and dinner on Sunday.  So we did !  4:30 pm, everyone showed to hunt for eggs.  I think the kids really enjoyed it, however Roger D. accidently hid some eggs TOO HARD for Treyson and Tagg, and they may never be found again !
Brightyn was all sorts of pretty in her new Easter Dress, and stylin' shades :)
Here's Tagg, going into the tree to get his blue egg (you can see it faintly)
All done - the kids had a great time !
Of course there was a little trampoline jumping :)
We had a wonderful dinner of ham, funeral potatoes, salads, and dessert.  Everyone said it was scrumptious.  Yea me !

Thatch had to try out his new bike
Tagg too
Little Tallon (big dog in a little body), was trying to climb all over our old Lucky boy.  It was like an old Grandpa being pestered by a young toddler.  Pretty funny to watch.

All in all it was a GREAT DAY !!

Easter Fun

Over the past week, I was able to get with the grandkids and help to make these cute little Easter crafts.  It was a fun time working with them.   I sure love them, they make life special, we are so blessed to have them in our lives.  I hope they will remember these fun times.   Happy Easter tomorrow.

Surprise for Treyson

Here's what CJ had to say about this on FB:
I surprised Treyson today (which is almost impossible to do) and made him go with me to Deseret Book 📚 little did he know Brandon Mull would be signing books!! He was so excited and surprised! He kept saying calm down mom have u even read the books and I was like no but I love a good surprise!
Treyson has been reading these FABLEHAVEN books like mad lately.
I noticed the other day on FB that Brandon Mull would be in Layton at a bookstore.  At first I thought we had missed it, but then it popped up again on my FB feed, so I tagged CJ.  Monday night, Layton, hopefully no crowds?  Yahoo !!!
I had no idea that CJ would actually arrange her busy schedule to make this happen, but I'm so so glad she did !
I'm glad this boy was so happy, and so glad for the small part I had in making it happen.
