Rest in Peace Janet

Janet Stuart
Jan 7, 1951- Aug. 23, 2009

Janet passed away Sunday night. She was the wife of a salesman that I worked with for over 10 years. She had a long battle with liver disease. She was a fabulous artist and genuinely kind person. Our hearts go out to her husband, Glen and the rest of her mourning family.

Unable are the loved to die. For love is immortality. ~Emily Dickinson

Sisterly Love

The week after my birthday, my sister-in-laws and their families came to our house for a visit. Jenn brought dinner, which was fabulous! Then we had ice cream as a little, late birthday celebration. They live in Bountiful so it was quite a drive for them to come out (not to mention the rush hour traffic). It was very nice and thoughtful!
I said, you can't eat in the living room...so busted!

I love it when Jenn is around, she will take your camera and take all the pictures! Plus, she's way better at it than I am.

Here are some she took of Kenlee that I really liked in black & white.

Thanks to Jenn, Natalie and Aubrey for spending time with me and making me feel special!

Mixed Martial Arts

A martial arts academy has been coming to Kenlee's daycare for the past 4-5 weeks for free. They have spent a half hour with the kids once a week, teaching them basic martial arts moves. Last weekend they held a "graduation" for the kids at the academy. Kenlee has really been enjoying it and was super excited about the graduation. They gave each child a certificate, a white belt and foam nunchucks. Here are some pictures:

Of course, they wanted the kids to sign up for classes at the academy. If it didn't cost $95/month, I probably would have signed her up. I have no idea what pricing is on that sort of thing, but it seemed high to me. I think I will call around and see what it costs at other places in our area.

Birthday Present

I have been wanting a new clock for a long time. The one I used to have quit working about a year ago...really annoying. So, this is what I got for my birthday this year!
I found 2 clocks that I liked...bought them both and decided to return the one I didn't want. The first one was too dark (you couldn't read it very well) and mounted on the wall funny....the second clock seemed ok, but didn't work after installing batteries and hanging it on the wall. So after failing at my first clock choices, Justin helped me pick out this one......
The picture doesn't do this clock justice.....It's huge! It's probably about 3 feet in diameter, our TV is 62"......just to give you an idea of the size. I love it!

Sparkler Fun

On Saturday, July 25th, we went out for my birthday dinner with our freinds the Leavitts (Crystal and Derrick). We decided to go to The Cheesecake Factory. I had never been there before and it was really good...gigantic portions!!! The dessert was amazing!
Afterward we did some sparklers with Kenlee and their son Easton. They had a good time!
