New Planter

Malcolm put in a new planter and plant on the front corner of our yard. The plant is a crepe myrtle plant with lavender flowers. He did a great job and it improves and beautifies the corner.

Relief Society Dinner

We had a good Relief Society Dinner for half of the Stake tonight. We had a potato bar with salad, rolls and brownies. Everyone was so good to help and the dinner was delicious. This is a picture of the group that attended. We are trying to keep a pictorial history of the events for our Stake.

Smiley Malcolm

I love this picture of Malcolm. It was taken at his Contra Costa Picnic while I was in Utah. He has a wonderful smile!

A nostalgic visit at Gram Eastland's

Gram Eastland with Ben
Today, Gram Eastland and I went through some family heirlooms and books and just really had a great time talking about family and memories. I got some interesting views into her childhood and early adult life. When we were going through things, she gave me this necklace that had belonged to my Grandmother (her Mom). It is very delicate and beautiful. It will be a treasure to me.

The books below belonged to Grandpa Hansen (my Mom's Dad) He carried them with him in the service during WWI in France. There is a Book of Mormon, New Testament and Hymn Book and a very early 1915 edition of a book by James Talmage who he was named after. Sure has been an enjoyable day.

We also moved all of Gram's canned food upstairs in a spare closet with a nice shelf so she has easy access to the things she needs. Full and satisfying day

A visit at Dan and Kristina's

I had a wonderful visit with Dan, Kristina, Brad, Kylie and Ben. Kristina cooked a delicious soup with tortilla strips on top and we had a chance to visit and enjoy the children. I brought them some sticker books which they enjoyed and were into right away. It was so fun.

Mal's truck & Mason

Malcolm has needed a truck to finish some work in our yard and got a good deal on this Chevy from a family in our neighborhood. Amanda and Mason came down so we put Mason in the back of the truck and he was so excited and explored and chattered about the truck and being "up" so we had a photo shoot with a happy Mason and Grandpa
He thinks he is hot stuff in the bed of the truck!
