I'm a wife to a wonderful man, Dan and a mother to 10 amazing kids. I'm a "mom-in-law" and a grandma. I love being all the things I am. I work as a Speech~Language Pathologist with a local school district and I am also a Pharmacy Tech in my "spare time". In the summers I love working in my flower gardens and taking pictures of my beautiful roses. I enjoy reading, cross-stitching, sewing, walking, and reading my family's blogs. I especially love holding our new grandbabies and talking with my children. I have a great life and I am grateful for the many blessings I have.
"Alice laughed. 'There's no use trying,' she said. 'One can't believe impossible things.' 'I daresay you haven't had much practice,' said the Queen. 'When I was younger, I always did it for half an hour a day. Why, sometimes I've believed as many as six impossible things before breakfast." ~ Alice in Wonderland
It's been just over a month since I last blogged but it feels like a lifetime of happenings. So much fun, so many blessings! Let's begin at Kristi's Spring Break. She came up so we could all enjoy the kids together, and we had a blast. Then Ember entertained us at her Big 1 Birthday Party.
We celebrated Mother's Day with breakfast for dinner and a brand new waffle iron.(Eat your heart out, Daniel - or come over and we'll eat waffles.)Gracie came home for the summer and one night she did Alisha's hair for the stake dance. Everyone's glad that Gracie's home. At least, between work and friends, sometimes she's home. :-)
Last Saturday Dad, Alisha and I took flowers to the cemetery's for Memorial Day.
And then we went to Logan for the Allison/Harmon Family Reunion. We had a great time with family that we don't usually get to see. Uncle Dick and Granma Harmon (formally an Allison) were both there along with several from the second and third generations. This was the second Allison Reunion and it looks like it's going to continue. YEAH!!'All the while I was finishing another school year, quitting the job at Garcia's and beginning the job at the pharmacy; working 75 hours between the two and starting the summer school job. I've loved working in the pharmacy and learning lots of new things; with lots of new things still to learn. This will be my first summer school experience and I'm sure it'll be a good one. I'll work two mornings a week with kids at school before going to the pharmacy to finish out the day. Summer school only goes through July 17 so there'll still be plenty of summer left after that. Also, I just finished Laura and Mark's crib comforter and bumper guard. I didn't include a picture of that because it's kind of a surprise. Maybe later. And as you can tell, spring has come. The apricot tree has had it's blossoms, the tulips have bloomed and Granma Rhode's silver dollar flowers are up. I am most grateful for each of these beautiful sights. Now if it would just warm up a little, I'd call it summertime. The Christensen girls are coming over for a hot tub party this afternoon so I'll close this blog and look forward to doing another one soon.
