Funny haha

For Jon:


Monday, October 24, 2011


Jon's parents came to visit in August. One of the things we did was go to the Discovery Children's Museum in Salt Lake.

It was fun! We played in water,

Climbed Rocks,

Rode big fake horses,

and big fake bugs,

caught bubbles...

and pretended to pull them out our noses (definitely my child!!),

Floated with hot air balloons,

okay it was a green screen,

reported the news,

punched a building (it fell seconds later!),

looked through tubes?,

colored with a spirograph thing,

built towers,

Took naps,

built more towers,

danced on a light-up backgammon board,

narrowly escaped death by over sized dominos,

became life sized fooseball players,

Rode in...

...and flew a lifeflight 'copter!

Whew! It was a fun day! We topped it off with a Ben and Jerry's Ice cream treat. MMMM!!


Talon's Blessing

Talon was blessed on August 7, 2011.  Jon, surrounded by Kurt, Tristan, and a few other close friends,  gave Talon a name which he will be known throughout his life and on the records of the church, and a blessing. Jon blessed him with strength and health to grow strong in his faith and in his life. With wisdom to be able to discern right from wrong and courage to act on that . And he blessed him with the knowledge to know that is family and those around him love him very much.

It was a short sweet blessing! I am so thankful that Jon is willing and able to bless our children, and I am thankful for Kurt and Tristan who were also able to share in this special ordinance.

I have five about twenty million reasons why I haven't blogged in a long time, but instead of listing them, I'll just inform you that we are still alive and well, and this is my commitment to catch up, though it may take forever a while.
