A new Granddaughter

Well, We've added a new granddaughter. This makes 2. Andy and Melissa had their baby June 20th at 12:25 am. Melissa did really great. 6 lbs. 6 ozs. 18 inches long. She's a tiny little darling. The name has not been decided as of today, but it's between Stella and Liv. She's beautiful of course, and so precious. Now I can't wait for the cousins to meet. I'll be staying with the new parents for a little while, help out where needed. Being a grandparent is wonderful!!

Oldest and Youngest

I had my oldest and my youngest with me today. We tease Julie that she is a female version of

Tyler. Tylette in other words. Tell me if you agree.

Me and my DAD

It was so fun having my dad here with me in person, on Father's Day. Here we are.

29th anniversary

Oh My Word, I almost forgot to mention that on this day, June 17, 2007 it is not only Father's Day, but it is Mel and My 29th anniversary. Woo Hoo. It was a very nice day. We had a house full, but that just led to it being more festive. We had my parents here, Andrea and her friend Alexis, Mel's sister Linda and hubby Mike, and Tyler Anna and Grace, and Mel, Julie and I. Mel

made a wonderful dinner, and he being the sweet man that he is, listened to my desire for a Magellan navigation system. Now I hope that it works as well as I'm thinking it will. Happy Father's Day and Happy Anniversary Mel

Should I stay or should I go?

My Melissa is about ready to have her baby, and I'm in such a dilemma on if I should wait, or if I

should get going to Utah. I want to time it perfectly, but I don't know if that is really possible. Also, because Julie has Cheer obligations, I want her to be able to do those, but then again, I feel

that your sister having a baby is more important. YIKES !!!!! So, this may, or may not be my last blog for a while. UNLESS I can access this from my parents house. Wish me luck.

Michelle's jam packed summer last year

I couldn't resist putting this page up. I loved making it, and I think it turned out great. I kept

telling Michelle that she had the summer of everyone's dreams last year. Travel, romance, occasional work, and family. She went to Hawaii, on a Caribbean cruise, to Bryce Canyon, Lake Powell, Carpinteria beach, and had fun with the boys. And missionary experiences to boot. Way

to go Michelle

Play it again.....Sam eerr Joneel

Well this weekend is going to be a busy one. I will be playing the piano non-stop, almost. I have

a funeral on Saturday that I will play the prelude music, and for two special musical numbers.

Then on Saturday evening, I've been asked to play the organ for the chapel session for our stake

at the temple. Then on Sunday, I play the Organ for Sacrament meeting and again for the 2 hours of Primary. I guess my parents money for lessons is paying off. For someone = )

While I am online, I'll post a picture that I put into my new digital scrapbook. Enjoy

Ice skating cousins

This one was fun for me. I tried something new with my photoshop tools. And we have lots of

memories at the ice skating rink.

Baby shower

When Julie, Mel and I went to Utah in April, we had a family baby shower for Melissa. Here
is a post with everyone's face who was at the baby shower. (Sorry Tierra and Maddy, we never
got a picture of you) The face on Vicky is because she was trying to figure out what kind
of candy bar was in one of the diapers. If she were famous, I could probably make bank on this photo.

Sharing more pictures

Here are some of the latest of my creations. Sisters. There's something great about having a sister. So here's to the sisters out there.
