Fun Four-Day Disney Cruise

After not being together for over 2 ½ years, we welcomed a couple of days in Orlando as a family, and then we went on a fun, four-night Disney cruise. We opened the outside balcony doors between our cabins, so we could visit with the families that opened their drapes (a code everyone understood), there were plenty of activities around the ship for everyone, and the weather was perfect! Even though there will probably always be someone missing (this year Sidney, Cameron, and Owen weren’t with us), we’ve decided that two years is too long in between family reunions!

April OnStage Samples (You Read Right!)

As I was carefully packing up my samples for OnStage this week (I’m so excited to be in Orlando with many of you!), I realized that I never shared my samples from April’s OnStage (product from Stampin’ Up!’s current annual catalog)…as well as the samples from the cruise (grrr!), so here are April’s samples, and I’ll post samples from the cruise in a couple of days.

Happy Halloween

Halloween is one of my favorite holidays at Stampin’ Up! I love getting together and cheering for the teams and individuals who dress up…so creative! And although I don’t have any photos of them, seeing children in costume walk through the building with their parents, collecting treats from everyone’s desks, brings a special spirit into the building. It was a happy Halloween!

Ten Days

Conference weekends, held every April and October, are two of my favorite weekends of the entire year (nearly ten hours of inspiration and counsel—all while lounging in my sweats!), and this conference was no exception.

50 Years?!

Yes, it’s been 50 years since Sterling graduated from Kanab High School—something worth celebrating! Just before Sterling and I enjoyed a lovely dinner in Kanab with almost all of his living classmates and their spouses, I snapped this photo of the class of 1968. It was nice to see everyone and have a chance to catch up!

Gardner Grand 2018

Overall, we felt like it was a good weekend. The thing I love to watch is the interaction between the cousins, especially the older ones with the younger ones. It’s so sweet and probably the thing that makes me want to do it every year!

Fun Memories

After spending two days cleaning, loading, and traveling to and from Lake Powell for only two days of fun on the lake (not a great ratio), we decided it was definitely too short, but it was still worth it! Sage and her two boys joined us, along with Sara’s youngest and Shalae’s three oldest. We stayed in the slip, enjoyed some of the usual lake traditions, and made some fun memories!

Missionary Cameron

Cameron was set apart on Tuesday as a missionary for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. it was a special experience, and while we’ll miss him, we’re so pleased that he’s chosen to serve the people in Zimbabwe, Africa for two years. Afterwards, we enjoyed a yummy dinner (some of Cameron’s favorite dishes) and visiting with his family. It was a memorable evening for Sterling and I…one of those times that it pays to be a grandparent!
