A visit to Mitch and Tiffany Spence's home

This home originally belonged to Heber C. Kimball and it is located in Bountiful.  The rafters in the ceiling are the original and the door casings are original. They removed the lath and stucco from of the walls which resulted in this beautiful  brick.  The original home is in the center and new additions surround it.  IT IS AMAZING.
The finished door casing! Remember the old windows and doors we had when we lived in Granite and Orangeville!  These are just beautiful!
This is another angle.  This home is truly a work of Art!  This young man, Mitch has done an awesome job.  He is married to my cousin Jim Ivin's daughter Tiffany.
This home has lots of charm and a wonderful family live in it.

Finished a quilt last weekend

Sherilyn is teaching me how to make rag quilts.  They are fun to make and OH SO SOFT!
This quilt is probably for a little girl.  All you need to do to win this quilt is to be the first to have a baby girl!

Weekend trip to Cedaredge to visit the Mortensens

Mark and Sherilyn are enjoying their new home in the mountains of Colorado. (Not to Shabby)
Over the weekend Jorden, Bennett, Laura and I drove to Colorado to spend time with Mark and Sherilyn.  We enjoyed conference together and went in to town to an event called Apple Fest.  I can truly say that I have never tasted better apples in my life.  The Honey Crisp apple is something to die for.  Sherilyn also kept busy cooking her kids favorite food.
Sherilyn has been busy unpacking boxes and also is managing to get some sewing done.  Mark is busy working and building shelves.  They will make a difference wherever they go.  The ward will keep them very busy.
Sherilyn hangs out here when she is unpacking boxes.  This area is an apartment attached to the home.  What a perfect place for Sherilyn to work on her creativity.  Its also a nice place for Grandma Passey to hang out when she comes to visit.
We had a wonderful time.  It was fun for me to spend some time with all of the Mortensens.  We arrived in Provo at about 10:30 Sunday evening and then I drove to Salt Lake from there.  Sunny was a little sick coming home so her ride was not the best.

Morris Family visitors

Saturday  Lowell, Charlotte and their family arrived late late in the evening and spend the night with me.  They had spent the day in Provo shopping, attending the BYU game and they also attended a temple session in the evening.

Sunday morning they had a little time to relax before we had to attend George Michaelis's farewell which was held in Ogden.  Lowell is helping Jacob put a puzzle together.

Eli is having his turn!

Abby and Hannah are just hanging out.  Their mom Charlotte gave me a lesson on the computer.  I have to catch my kids when they stop by so Grandma can learn the skills needed in creating a picture book.

Mortensen Family came to visit

I was driving home from the funeral in Lund and Sherilyn called and said that dinner would be ready when I arrived home.

I drove into my driveway at 6:00 Sun. evening ant there to greet me was Jorden, Laura, Bennett, Sherilyn and Mark.  Sherilyn had made Chicken and Dumplings for dinner and their kids from college had just arrived to partake of their mom's delicious food.

Two pictures I added to the funeral post

I forgot to include Aunt Marsha and also Wade and Carol's entire family

We sure enjoyed seeing Marsha again.  It had been a long time since we had been able to visit with her.  This was a last minute picture.  I realized that I did not have a picture of her so we stood in the middle of the room and we took a picture of each other.

My brother Robert Gardner's funeral

Family and loved ones of Robert Gardner gathered in Lund Nevada for his funeral.  People traveled many miles to pay their respects to my brother.  I can truly say that it was truly a time of healing for many of us.
