I got to go up to Utah and visit with my mother who is serving a mission at the Family History Center in Salt Lake City Utah and help her celebrate her 80th birthday. Vera and Cousin Jackie arranged to have a lovely party at Jackie's house. The Baileys; Uncle Bill, Joy, Debbie and Jana all came and Cousin Pam Hopkins. My aunts Carolynn, Mary and Pam, my dad's sisters, were there with their husbands where available and with Cousin Dean Hunsaker when not. My mom's cousin Bonnie came from the nursing home and was accompanied by two of her children. Keven Walkenhorst who is my second cousin came just to see me (ha) because he was my district leader when I served a mission those millions of years ago and he was also John's companion. A good time was had by all. To see more pictures of the party visit my mother's blog at chyrrelo.blogspot.com.
Cristin's main project in her Art class this year is taking a book and filling it with art works. The top image was the assignment of including a door that opened, the lighthouse was just something she wanted to do. Dallin played the 'Lighthouse's Tale' for us while we were in Utah and Cristin couldn't get it out of her head one weekend so she commited the song to paper, the final image is 'Lightning' the words that were already on the page were 'his keen mind leapt like lightning.'

Daniel put a video on my computer before he left on his mission. I tried to download it but after 3 hours it still didn't load. Piffle....

I am new at this family blog thing. I hope to give you a blow by blow of our upcoming move. Tomorrow the realitor comes to take pictures of our house for the world wide web. Also the movers are coming to access how much junk we have to move. I have been boxing up stuff to declutter our home. It has actually been rather cathartic. John starts work on March 1st with a trip to Mercer Island in Washington state to meet the corporate people and then starts officially on his new job on his birthday March 4th.
