After 4 long years of hard work and dedication, Madeleine graduated this week from BYU majoring in Print Journalism with minors in Editing and German. I think we can say that she embraced college! From the classes to magazines and newspapers, from all the sports to the many many friends, she loved it all and definitely got her money’s worth!
Watch her receive her diploma.
Claudia (88 years old this June) got to meet Kenyon for the first time today. Claudia married Floyd Breinholt as his second wife in 1975. Floyd Breinholt is father to my mom, Karen Breinholt Morgan, who is my mom and of course, I am mom to my son Loren who is father to little Kenyon.
Madeleine turned 22 and Alan turned ?? oh, I think it’s 53? We had the traditional Halusky dinner with Poppyseed birthday cake – fun evening together with the fam!
Look what I bought at Reams for $1.69 apiece last week….
It was very fun to have everyone here Easter weekend…and the weather was gorgeous! When I asked Elliot (at BYU) if he thought the Easter Bunny needed to come to our house this year he said, “Well, I think the Easter Bunny still loves me…”
In preparation for his mission, Elliot was able to receive his endowments in the Draper Utah Temple today. We had a nice group with Alan’s parents, Loren, Anne, Tess and Bishop Lundgren and his wife, Marla. It’s great to have so much support! It was a very nice experience and Elliot is excited to be able to attend several times before he leaves for Peru June 5th.
The kid has 4 teeth and chews on everything in his hands including your finger if you let him hold it! Small brag moment… I made both of the blankets he is so enjoying during the nap below! They are “grandma blankets” that I have fun using every time he comes.
Apparently one of the things on Grandpa Wally’s bucket list is taking a ride down the Olympic Bobsled track. So during Spring Break, he invited Clark and off they went to Park City. Grandpa sat 2nd behind the driver and Clark sat 3rd behind him. Travelling at 88 miles an hour it only took them 55.6 seconds to get down the hill. New Olympic record?
Getting older and older, Elliot had to fight with Kenyon for attention at his birthday dinner!
I have 3 sisters and 2 sisters-in-law and we have decided that we want to have a monthly Sisters Day. Melanie planned the first one and since it was the week of my birthday, she decided that now that I’m 50, I should “really” start living life, so my sisters took me “flying.”
I would never jump out of an airplane, but for a couple of minutes today, I felt like I had. It was really fun and not at all scary! Watch the video. A really fun surprise to the whole day was that my sister Melinda flew up from Arizona to surprise me and got to be here for the first Sisters Day! We did miss Elasha, who couldn’t join us because she has a brand new darling baby.
