We had such a wonderful weekend with y’all. It was fast I know and we hope we got to spend enough time with each of you. We DO love our family and extended family too. The best part was being at the Temple with you. It is a parents dream to have all of their children, their spouses and our three grandchildren there in the Temple. That is what this life is all about and we thank you for the lives you are living and the choices you are making.
The evening with the Andrew’s family was very special. They are a wonderful family and shared with us the things they enjoy. The pork was delicious!! I have to admit I was a little taken back by the WHOLE pig thing, but it is Brother Snarr’s favorite thing to cook and it was delicious. So was the corn. Andrew and Shayla were so gracious at the Temple and at their reception. They were so happy to meet all their guests and it was a wonderfully warm atmosphere. Sue and Cal hosted a wonderful evening including their dance....like the old Star Palace days when they were dating. It was a special blessing to have Aunt Ann, Aunt Joan and Uncle Frank come down. It is truly a blessing how well Ann is doing after her serious fall We did miss having Caitlin with us, but we understand her commitment to school and her team. GO EAGLES! We will see you in the spring. On Saturday, I enjoyed the drive up to Bridal Veil Falls. I haven’t been up there since I went with my parents. The whole weekend was just wonderful!!!
We got home Monday about 3:00 and jumped right back into things. The termites, the Pee Wees and the J.V. teams had games starting at 5:00; so of course we went to give them and their families our support. We were sorely missed! And they were so glad we came back. Tuesday we went over to Montgomery for our final golf game with Elder and Sister Kelly. They are from Tampa Florida and have served their mission on Maxwell Air Force Base. We have become very good friends and it was hard to say good bye. They complete their mission tomorrow. Tampa and Salt Lake are not very close, but technology will keep us connected. The two men would take one cart and golf and the two sisters would take the other cart and talk, talk, talk. A mission has so many wonderful blessings.
Ryan in a text message said: “ Great to see you both, you look and sound awesome. It was fun. NOW GO GIT'R DONE.’” We will get back into our missionary mode, with renewed goals and commitments. We know our family is being blessed by our service and your sacrifice. We can’t tell you how much you each mean to us and the love and support we feel from you. Love you y’all!!!
