Some eat cake and ice cream on their birthdays.
But this is how our Susan (my Dad's wife)
chose to celebrate her 77th birthday!
The video is a bit blurry but you get the idea.....

I've been sick through most of the month of November.
Nothing really bad, and nothing that put me in bed much.
Just a lingering allergy/cold/virus(?) coughing thing.
But it's made me tired, and I was thinking maybe this year we wouldn't put up the tree.
But after seeing this video this morning, our tree is going up.
I want to celebrate Christmas to the fullest.

Excited....because....at the very end of this little clip I get to see my 2 unborn granddaughters.
McKenna will give birth on Dec 8th....in just 11 days!
And Karen is due on January 26th. Little girls who get to grow up together.
At the very beginning is McKenna's brother Jared, with his wife Heather. Jared fried the turkey this
year! I've never ever tasted a fried turkey.
It's hard being 765 miles away from them!

Since they can make it pretty much by themselves..

Violet is our local grandchild who is not in school all day.
And I'd been craving a day with her...
But when we got there.....and maybe because we had 3 men working on our dishwasher...

"With people around the world, we mourn today as we
consider the horrific tragedies that have occurred in Paris. We
pray for those affected, for their families and loved ones, for the
leaders of nations and most especially for the people of France
as they struggle to recover from the violence and loss they are
feeling so deeply. We have directed that flags on Temple Square
be flown at half staff, and that the French Flag be flown here as
an expression of our love and support for them. In these hours
of uncertainty and despair, we ask members of the Church
everywhere to join with us in our prayer that the peace of the
Savior Jesus Christ will provide comfort, healing,
understanding and hope."

before the curtain even opened.
"And what did I tell you every time I took you to a play?"
Elora's Uncle McKay was in ANNIE about 15 years ago,
as the policeman.
What goes around comes around. As they say.

And then I had several things out for them to decorate with
and they all "went to town" as my Mom use to say...
Some used a bit too much glue
so I wished I had supervised on that part a bit more.
(But I really don't like interfering when creativity is taking place.)
Which to me, is one big reason it is so good to keep a journal!

Didn't he do such an amazing job?
and the boys were playing "detective." Brock, age 9 there, asked if
"newborn baby could play with us." So for just a few moments I
placed baby Tyler there with them.
days of my life. All FOUR of my SONS together. A new beginning.
Such wonder and gratefulness I felt.
I still do.
