A Piece of Me Died Today

Today I loaded up my second most prize possession.  All my tropical plants and citrus trees have been transported to a place they will survive.  To nevermore be seen.  I realize this may sound silly to some of you but plants are my "thing". I love re- potting, watching them grow, waiting for the blooms, smelling the flowers for months at a time. This was my hobby. A little piece of my soul died today. 

To put salt in my wound, I googled "plants that live in boise" and this was the picture that came up...  just dirt.  Great.

Blessing Day

This picture is really what this day is all about.  All the people who came to show their love for our family and be remembered in Claire's Baby book forever.  The blessing is one thing, but this picture will be in her family history for "ever".  Thanks for coming everyone, we felt loved.  (disclaimer:  Ryan Ward and his sweet family also came, which will be noted in said baby book. )

Baby Claire at 1 month old. 

New family picture.  

 Better picture of very fancy, beautiful dress from Grandma Jean.  One of our traditions is to let Grandma Jean choose the blessing outfits for all the children.  She has never let us down and always out does herself. Thank you.

Halloween in Vegas

So come to find out my Aunt is famous.  I thought she was famous in LDS circles or old singer "where are they now" kind of way, but I was mistaken.  This is Marie Osmond, and she has been continually famous for five decades, and had a #1 song in 2011.  I never realized what a big deal Donny and Marie are.  

My mother-in-law knew differently.  She is a huge fan and taught her kids Osmond brothers dance moves when they were little.  So to surprise her for her birthday, we kidnapped her to Vegas for a Concert and VIP treatment with the stars.  She was thrilled. Scott and I had a great time too.  The Donny and Marie show was very entertaining and fun to watch.  I will never forget this Halloween. Thanks Aunt Marie.

The kids are alive and well despite the living conditions.  They even look happy.
