grandpa joe lauren

This is the first small taste of Lauren's performance as Grandpa Joe in Willy Wonka at the Scera. It's a youth production. She was awesome! (is anyone surprised?) Coming soon will be two other songs including Brandon and Savannah's favorite, the BURPING song!


Lauren's 12 Days of Christmas

We (Elizabeth, Mandy, Brandon, Marilee, Richard, Jordan, Jen, Audrey, Savannah) watched Lauren perform at the Scera Theater for her singing group, the Headliners. She did a great job, much better than my cellphone could capture. Anyway, enjoy within the limits of hand-held technology. :-)

Here is some cell-phone-video of the concert.

Grand Canyon, Grand Vistas, Grandchildren, oh my...

Grand Canyon, Grand Vistas, Grandchildren, oh my...

Here are some pictures from Grandpa over the last little while.
I don't have a description of the first several but starting with the Grand Canyon we have:
"The first 2 are on the North rim as we came down to see you.
The second 6 are of a trip to Kent's Lake and several of nearby Anderson Meadow lake with fish jumping all on Beaver Mountain and hour and a half from Paragonah.
The last six are of the Rexburg Temple, Moose creek where we camped for several days and went to Church at the chapel near Mac's Inn and Mesa Falls on Henry's fork of the snake river."


Labor Day Quick Trip

Labor Day Quick Trip

Diana and Melinda drove up to Utah to move Melinda in to her new digs. Joseph was able to come down from Rexburg with his Uncle Kirt and Aunt Brenda and surprise them. They had a great time. They spent the night in Paragonah on the way up and got to see the new trailer and John and Jen and gang. Then they moved Melinda in and had a party with the other free gangs up there. Then Sunday night they were with the Jamison cousins. Here are the pictures.


A Yankee Meadows Picnic

A Yankee Meadows Picnic

Here are some pictures of a picnic at Yankee Meadows. I can almost smell the smoke of the fire and hear the running stream, the wind through the trees and the playful romping of the dogs. I can almost see Brandon looking for the mud to jump into! There is even a snowman!

Here are some pictures taken of Matt and Chiaki's gang as they visited with family and made memories. I'm not sure all that happened so I will post the pictures and encourage them to provide comments on the pictures.

Pre-adult Paragonah Praying Mantis Plays Part of Free Fourth Family Fun

Pre-adult Paragonah Praying Mantis Plays Part of Free Fourth Family Fun

Here is a tiny praying mantis on Rebecca's hand. She found it out by grandpa's garden as we were having a fire in the back yard. You should have seen the kids faces when Grandma and Grandpa suggested we roast marshmellows out back. Ah, it was great.

Some of the pictures are time-lapsed images of Daniel and Joshua wiggling their burning sticks in the air.

There are then a couple of shots of the great family activities they had on the church lawn.

You can find the pictures here.

Three Generations Dressing Up!

Three Generations Dressing Up!

Elizabeth and Lauren came to have Easter Dinner with us. After Dinner Grandma opened up her Cedar Chest which contained her wedding dress and some artifacts from my mother, hats, scarves and gloves. I had always intended to mount them in a window box as a memorial to her. Also Grandma Worthen's wedding ring was there. The pictures show lauren at 11 years wearing the wedding dress her grandmother Isabel wore at 20 years. They had so much fun all together that I had to take a few pictures. They show three girls in three different generations having a good time together. I thought of the Prophecy of Malachi about hearts of the children being turned to their Fathers and felt this bond strongly as they laughed. More pictures
