I hope you’re having a lot of fun in heaven, causing trouble, drinking Pepsi, eating Red Hots, and making everyone there feel as loved as you made me feel.

The handsome fella on the left is my Grandpa Denning who passed away on January 28, 2012. The gorgeous couple on the right are my Grandparents Newren who passed away before him. I miss them all very much.

Love you more times infinity!”


Is it February yet?

I really want to put up my pinks and reds and hearts, but it’s January and January isn’t all hearts; it’s more all cold, wet, white, and full of grumpy people.

Wait. Why am I confining myself to conventions of society? I’m going red and pink and all hearty right now!


… I forgot the red, but this is good enough! 🙂

Ice storm

Experienced my second ever ice storm yesterday. I asked my dad when the last one in Utah (where I live) was and he said, “The day you were born.” Well, I start things out right! 😉

The path of the gods!


… er dogs??

Ha ha ha!

(Don’t get it?? Read Rick Riordan’s Kane Chronicles and you’ll understand, maybe.)

If nothing else, my nephew is sticking cute, no?! 😀

From the “archives”: Snowed out

So, I totally filmed this video back in October and then never had the time to edit it, until now! ENJOY!

A note to my AWESOME readers, but especially you:

This time of year is always super busy for everyone. That’s what makes it so much fun! But it also makes it hard to get everything done you want to, which is why I haven’t had the time to upload everything that I’ve been planning to, yet. But there’s always time to say: I love you!

Hang in there this holiday season! It’s always hectic and crazy but fun! Enjoy it!

Loves, hugs, kisses and delicious hot chocolate!


God is wonderful!

“Adam fell that men might be, and men are that they might have joy.” 2 Ne 2:25

Thanks God for giving me so many rich, beautiful blessings: my family, my friends, lots of work to do, music, painted skies, MOUNTAINS!, fall, the calm of winter, books, poems, science, math, Christmas, delicious food!, video games, computers, technology and plumbing, soccer, and bumps and bruises that gave me perspective and understanding so I could really appreciate all that I have. And thanks for all the people who read, comment, subscribe to, share, and enjoy this crazy blog!
