Pennsylvania Farm Show

January means the Pennsylvania Farm Show in Harrisburg, PA- one of the highlights of the kids life. Farm animals, good food, cowboys, rodeo. Beau was so sad to leave, 'no leave a farm show!' (sob sob). It's been a couple weeks but when Beau gets tired or sad, he still starts crying about the rodeo and how he wants a turn!

Beau so sad to leave the Farm Show.

Beau's 2011 Nursery Class

This past year, Darin and I were the nursery leaders for Beau's class. It was so much fun to be in nursery with Beau! He loved playing with all the kids, the toys, learning about Jesus, and singing time! Beau is very energetic and friendly!

Grandma Jardine's Funeral

I will miss Grandma Jardine. I will miss her kindness, love, welcoming spirit, humor, concern for me and all those she knew, and her all around sweetness. It is still hard to imagine visiting Rexburg and Grandma won't be there. I am so grateful to have her example of love in my life.

I am also very grateful that the boys and I were able to make it back to Rexburg for her funeral. Everything fell into place and all travel went smoothly. It was so comforting to be with family and to hear the beautiful words spoken at her funeral. Aunt Claudia, Uncle Wade and my mom paid such touching and beautiful tributes to her life and her spirit.

It was also a great blessing to see family members (cousins, aunts, uncles) I have not seen in many years. All I could think was how happy it would make Grandma Pauline to be there - together laughing, catching up and having so many good times together. I know she is smiling from heaven and she is happy to be with Grandpa Fred. I love you Grandma!
