Our skating rink in the front yard of our home in 1950 in Alaska
Our ice rink at school in Fairbanks, Alaska. We spent our lunch hours and after school skating!
We have really enjoyed watching the Olympics the past couple of weeks. The Winter Olympics are our favorites. The skating, skiing and snow remind me of Alaska and many happy days spent on ice rinks and ski slopes when I was growing up. Hope you all enjoyed the games too!!

Valentine Day was wonderful. My sweet, thoughtful husband gave me a beautiful bouquet of roses and a darling card - I love flowers so I am so grateful and touched. I gave Malcolm some sugar free chocolates - he loves chocolate and I think these were good. After Church, Amanda and Tyler came down with a valentine cake with cool whip/pudding frosting and cherries - it was delicous along with a card made by the whole family. While Amanda and Tyler were visiting, our Stake Presidency came by and gave Malcolm a blessing. He has been sick for several weeks with a hacking cough. We appreciated their thoughtfulness after a full day of meetings! Thank you everyone for the wonderful day!

Tyler and Amanda went for a couple of days away for their anniversary so Grandpa picked the children up at school and I stayed overnight and cooked, played and just enjoyed all the children for a couple of days. We played scrabble, read books, cooked their favorite foods, snacked, and visited. Grandpa wasn't feel too well, but he came by everyday to check on us and have some goodies with us. Mason took his naps well and all the children went to bed like angels. Mason said the "jello was the best in the whole wide world!"

Tomorrow, Feb 3rd is Grandma Weston's 91st Birthday. She is doing well and is basically healthly and active. We spent Monday with doctor appointmnts, shopping, then dinner at our home with Amanda, Tyler and their little ones. It was fun and relaxing. She really enjoyed the time and attention from all of us. Happy Birthday, Mom, Grandma and Great Grandma!
