22 and counting ...

::: A caution to Michelle ~~~ read at your own risk :::

Congratulations to my wonderful and handsome husband for surviving 22 years with me! Thank you for being such an amazing husband and father. You have enriched and blessed my life in countless ways. I love and appreciate you and your example so very much! I love you!

Funnies ...

My kids say the funniest things! Here are just a few:

The other day I overheard Joshua say, "You can never have enough flashlights. End quote." So I'm thinking, who is he quoting. So I asked him, and he said, "Grandpa Medsker!"

Just about every weekend, the youth have been practicing for the Youth Spectacular. Mike has been helping with the Sound System since he is totally equipped for that. And since Mike is involved that means the girls are involved. So we load the Suburban on Friday night so it's ready because they have to leave at like 6:30 a.m. to set up (yes, that's not a misprint ... 6:30 a.m. on a Saturday morning) So this weekend the practice is at Weber State. Mike was somewhat relieved because he figured they wouldn't need his sound equipment expertise, but that wasn't to be. He received a call and they need his help. So, of course, he told Syd she needed to be ready on Saturday morning to go early. They were supposed to meet at the church at 7:30 a.m. to carpool up to WSU. When she heard about going early, she thought they would have to leave at like 5:30 a.m. and she would have to get up at like 4 a.m. to be ready because she likes to look perfect. So I told her the other day that Dad said she needed to be ready at 6:00 a.m. and she said, "Whoo, only 6 a.m., OK, that's not too bad!" LOL! What teenager is relieved to be ready at 6 a.m. on a Saturday morning?! I thought it was cute! Love ya, Syd!

OK, last thing. Yesterday we had the great fun of going to Em and Mike's for a while in the afternoon. We saw their new garden and stawberry patch which both look great! We also saw Em's new game (Little Big Planet) and the new level she made for the boys. We played it for a while and it was a lot of fun. Mike and Em also made us a yummy, yummy dinner. It was wonderful! So inbetween all of this fun time, we watched the video our Bishop made of Em and Mike's wedding/reception, etc. It turned out great and our Bishop did a wonderful job! The very last thing we watched were the comments made by people at the wedding. They were great! One of the best was by Brandon. He said,"I hope you both kill each other ... then he paused for like a second and I like take a silent breath ... then he finished ... with love!" It was the cutest thing!

Hope you all are enjoying your summer as much as we are!!!

He Lives

He Lives

Happy Easter, everyone!
I love the renewal of Spring. The beautiful flowers, trees, colors, warmth of Spring. I love to see the buds on the trees, the tulips popping up, the crocus blooming, the yellow forsythia bushes, the florescent green of my neighbors tree that is proof there will soon be leaves, the bright daffodils that have waited so long to show their beautiful color. It all reminds me of Spring! New and wonderful! It reminds me of our Savior, Jesus Christ ... His life, his love, his example, his Atonement, his death ... and the glory that it didn't stop there. He was resurrected! He was alive. He is alive! He lives! How wonderful it is to know that Jesus Christ lives! We will be resurrected just as He was. Although we may face death ourselves, or our loves ones, or those around us, we can have hope in Jesus Christ that we will live again just as He did. How greatful I am for such a wonderful gift! He lives!
