Summer End 2010

My friend, Linda, and I just got done decorating t-shirts. We learned how to doll up t-shirts at Relief Society a week ago and thought we would give it a try. It took us a couple of hours to do it. I am sure someone else could make one quicker. It was fun!
My mother-in-law finally moved closer to us. She only lives 10 minutes away and is able to come visit more often. The grandchildren, great-grandchildren, and her children love having her closer. Kate loved snuggling her one day.

Mr. Isaak can now do the winkie! So cute!
Last Sunday I got to teach the Relief Society lesson. For a visual aid I had Hayden pose for this picture to display.
Brielle posed with her grandfather on this picture. The picture goes with a story Elder Hales told last General Conference. It goes like this:
"Several years ago I was reading the newspaper when one of my young grandsons snuggled up to me. As I read, I was delighted to hear his sweet voice chattering in the background. Imagine my surprise when, a few moments later, he pushed himself between me and the paper. Taking my face in his hands and pressing his nose up to mine, he asked, "Grandpa! Are you in there?"

September 12 Jordan and Nikole hosted our monthly get-together. They fixed a wonderful meal. We loved hanging out, laughing, eating, playing, etc...

Just a bunch of us gathered around to talk and take pictures.

Darn it! I have the pictures in the wrong order. But this is Hayden the first day of pre-school. He couldn't wait to go! He ran ahead of everyone else. Hilary tried to take some pictures of his big adventure.

Hayden ran by me and kind of slowed down long enough for me to take a quick picture!

I thought Hayden was running to give me a hug and tell me he was excited to see me. That really wasn't the case. Love seeing all the excitement!

Brielle went to pre-school earlier this month also for the first time. She loves it, too! She paused for me to take a few pictures.

Brielle walking on the sidewalk looking way cute!

First day of pre-school! You look so cute, Brielle!

Late night at grandma's. All 9 grandchildren were there. Great memory builder.

Ogden Temple before the update

I had to take a picture of the Ogden Temple before they close it down for a while and update the entire outside. It will be so beautiful when it is done...but, the temple as it is has a special place in my heart. Tim and I married in the twin temple to this one just a little over 33 years ago and now we live in the Ogden temple districe. I have spent a lot of time in this building and it has become very special to me. I will miss going to this temple while it is closed. I will just have to go to Bountiful, or Logan, or Salt Lake, or Jordan River, or...
Come go with me before it's temporary closure!
