Spending Quality Time with my Charlie

That's what it's all about. A little personal time with the boy. Of course, Charlie does try to get together with us. Yet it seems also that he's at perfect peace all by his lonesome working on his puzzle downstairs and listening to his ipod, just being quiet about the house. He's enjoyed going on splits with the missionaries, one weekend spending 3 different nights out with them. He's been busy at school, high jumping in track, active in his speech and debate class, and enjoying the company of some great friends. Charlie is kind and compassionate to his classmates and has a funny quiet sense of humor. Maybe this is why he was voted as Junior Prom King. Actually, I think it's because his friends wanted to make sure he showed up and asked someone out, too. Well we love the little cutie, anyway.

Family Photos Sept. 2009

A year and a half ago, we had a photo session. Did I bother to share these with you. Actually, I guess I did put some of them on '09 Christmas cards that we sent out to our lovely family and friends. Yet somehow I never posted them to my blog.

Lacy, Jason and Luke came for a visit, so we all gathered together for a family reunion up by Bridal Veil Falls (Provo Canyon). It was a wonderful day, with lots of fun and games and crazy antics. I will never forget Tim wading into the rushing Provo river, looking up at my concerned face while he was being swept away, and loudly confessing, "It... just...felt... right." What a nut.

Jade and Tim's friend Jared took the pictures for us. My collage is an assortment of what he did. He is an exceptional photographer, and I hope to catch him again very soon. We'll all be gathered once more for JB's mission farewell for about two days. Hopefully Jared's available...

Resolved to have a Happy Blogging New Year!

Well, here we are at the close of a glorious decade and the beginning of another go round. Whether a sheer precipice or gently rolling along, I suppose 2011 is bound to show itself any time now. I pray for all my family and friends near and far that it is both gentle and rolling, that in 2011 we can feel the peaceful knowledge of our Savior's love and the happy progress of sweetly answered prayers. Grateful for the many blessings in my family's lives, I'm determined to reaquaint myself with this thing called blogging. With pictures a plenty and wordy sentence structure galore, it's high time for me to record our laughter, excitement, spoofs, spills, pranks, and our tears; those we shed of sorrow and most especially of joy. I so resolve...

(: P.S. Mrs. Lacy broke into my new year's blogging draft and left me the following note which I've highlighted in blue. I'm afraid it complicated my writer's block. I couldn't figure out how to transition.... So this is from my once other self, otherwise known as Lacy.....OH! I'm SOOOO EXCITED that you're going to be blogging again too!! I hope you get on it soon ;) --Lacy

Grandma, Aunt Doris, and Aunt Virginia...My Lovelies

So much better than JB's burn pics...don't you think?! I cannot say what a treat it was for me to have Aunt Doris, Aunt Virginia, and Grandma come to visit me. I wish I could see them so much more. I'm so thankful for the time we had to visit and share stories. I think I could have stayed up all night chatting. I hope I didn't wear them out... =)

"I hate burns." That's what I said on the way to the hospital. Interestingly enough, many others have repeated the same sentiment to me word for word over the last several weeks. Of course it's a given that everyone hates burns; sort of how we pretty much agree on crocodile bites, falling to the ground from twenty stories, or drowning. Still, to hear so many people say it so simply, emphatically, and with such empathy was a balm to my own singed fear. "I hate burns."

I know this is a heck of a place to start blogging again, but I told you all I would post pictures so here they are. I wish I knew how to post without collaging. I just can't figure out how Lacy could get so many pictures at once. Needless to say, or perhaps as I have already said to you personally, this was our frightening event for the year. I guess what I have to be thankful for is that JB has a lot of cheerful fortitude. It was because of him that we all shared some good laughs during the ordeal. I'm fairly certain that he has no nerve endings and therefore feels no pain.
