Shanna and Mario in Utah

We had a family council with our girls and their spouses this past weekend, so Shanna and Mario came in a few days early to see the rest of the family. It was fun to watch the nieces and nephews spend time with Aunt Shanna and Uncle Mario, which only happens a couple times a year. And our weekend together was educational, memorable, and a growing experience for all of us—so grateful for our family!

Goodbye for Two Years

This week before Zach entered the Missionary Training Center, we said goodbye for two years because Zach has been called to serve the people of Russia for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. He wished for and prayed for this call, so he was delighted when he received it! We will miss Elder White and his fun personality, but we’re so proud of his decision and will be praying for him!

Into the Pines

Out of the heat and up into the pines for a couple of days—a refreshing and relaxing way to spend time with my siblings and their families. There were fewer people this year at our family reunion at Panguitch Lake, but we all agreed it was enjoyable to visit and watch all the cousins play…and definitely worth the effort!

Sage Loves Blues

Since Sage loves all shades of blue, every year I make sure she receives gift packaging that highlights different blues. Sage also loves breakfast foods, so we went to breakfast with her for lunch, and guess what? She showed up wearing two shades of blue…shocker!

Welcome Home and Farewell

Everyone was excited to see Sidney arrive home Monday evening—a much anticipated time! And knowing it would be our last chance to see Seth, family and friends gathered together for Seth’s last supper before heading to the airport to greet Sidney.

Greek Isle Incentive Trip

We spent a couple of days in Rome before cruising to several ports in Greece with nearly 1,000 people in our Stampin’ Up! group. It was a very warm and amazing trip with some fantastic achievers, and although I didn’t get to visit with everyone, I enjoyed my time with many!

Ashton’s Birthday Quiver

Ashton is a curious young man, taller than me now, and has lots of hobbies. One of those hobbies involves practicing for hours with his bow and arrow. Ashton chuckled a bit and smiled big when he saw his birthday gift packaging—a quiver and arrows, if you couldn’t tell!
