Happy Anniversary

It was 2 years ago this day that my sweet daughter was becoming a wife to her sweetheart.  I just want to wish them a Happy Anniversary and let them know we love them dearly. 

Counting the days till you're here-9 :)

Grandma House

It's getting closer. The big arrival day of my grandson. I'm very excited for this to happen.  You see, Kali, Wade, and baby Miles are moving back to Utah if you haven't heard by now.  Wade has graduated from UMass with his Master's in Mental Health Therapy, and we are pretty proud of him.  So, this cute little family will be moving in with us until Wade finds work.  I personally hope they stay a long time.  This house is much too quiet and I need people around me, especially now. 
Kali doesn't have a highchair and so I just popped online to my favorite shopping site, and found this cute little highchair for a major good bargain and brought it right on home. Here it sets just waiting to be filled by this cute little guy!

Porter's 18th Birthday

Porter was most happy with a guitar in his hands.
Porter's 18th Birthday was on September 13th last year and I just barely found these pictures.  What a warm and happy surprise for me!!  I was preparing to go to girl's camp a couple weeks ago and wanted to clean off my camera disk to be able to take lots of pictures in the mountains and remembered I had a spare disk in my dresser.  I put that into my camera and reviewed all my old pictures, and that's when I came upon these forgotten pictures.  Another priceless treasure!

I love you Porter♥

In the past few weeks I have been looking all throughout the computer in hopes of finding anything that Porter may have recorded or written etc.  I came across these neat quotes by Marvin J. Ashton and William Shakespeare, but it isn't necessarily something Porter typed and saved.  But it is something that I thought was very much needed in my life, so I printed it out and now have it hanging on my magnet board in the kitchen.  I just wanted to share with you now, and hope it will help if you have challenges with being on time.  I know I do occasionally and thinking about these quotes have helped me.

Punctuality Defined: showing respect for other people and their time. 

William Shakespeare said, "Better three hours too soon than a minute too late."

Marvin J. Ashton-"Being on time to appointments and meetings is a phase of self-discipline and an evidence of self-respect.  Punctuality is a courteous compliment the intelligent person pays to his associates.  Punctuality, or the lack thereof oftentimes is the only introduction one will ever have to new groups and friends.  Serenity and poise are not the companions of those who lack the courtesy and judgment to be on
According to a nationwide survey of employers, the most important characteristic to the employer was punctuality.

Happy Sabbath!  I'm off to get ready for church so I may be on time :)

New Pictures

Kali, Cooper, Porter
My niece sent me a couple pictures she found in her stash of photos and thought I would like them.  Of course I would like them, they have Porter in them.  The first photo she told them to make funny faces and this is what they came up with.  I love how Porter's apparently funny face turned out to be a sweet, tender look to his sister.  The second photo Stacey told them to be nice and smile.   Thank you so much Stacey.  Like I said before, any new photo I receive with Porter in it is a treasure to me.
