Stealing Pringles from grandpa's plate. 
Favorite way of sleeping. 
Blanket crocheted by great grandma Jensen when she was born. 
Bedtime not attainable without it. 
Snowman in the ER. 
No attempts were made to save it. 
I get it whenever I try to snap a picture.

She was darling

Josh was ordained to be a Teacher in the Aaronic Priesthood.

It was a great day with family. 
To celebrate things that really matter. 

 Cool picture with "the boys".

Howard with our three sons.

Cameron with his one son. 

Ridiculously cute!

All of us.

I just LOVE these people!

These are days that matter most.

One of the first video games I remember was a game called Space Invaders. 
So different than video games today. 

This isn't a video game. 
But it is a SPACE INVADER!!!

It was found in my bed. 

We have grand kids for the weekend. 

There has been a lot of horsing around. 

And I mean A LOT!
And there has been a lot of giggling. 
And cuteness. 
I quite love Space Invaders.

Every two years I am required to prove myself.
Prove I am qualified to wear my badge to work.
To work in the ER. 

I am required to take an Advanced Life Support Class
It always stresses me out!

I wore this shirt.
This is my "instructor" teaching  us about wave form capnography.

This "instructor" is my oldest child!!!
Do you have any idea what it is like?
To  be required to take a class from your own spawn?
To have to prove yourself competent?
To prove that you know something?
When to them you know nothing?

Stressful I tell ya!

And I passed.
It's a good thing too.
I brought her into this world.......

But seriously, she made the class fun. 
She's a great teacher. 
And I'm so proud of her.

Snow and all.

Rental weather. 

It's really been lovely. 

Rental palm trees. 
Such a fun looking tree. 

Golf cart parking at the grocery store!
Golf carts?

Rental car
So totally hot!

And lemons, tangelos and oranges. 
So delicious!
Freshly picked by me!
Who knew lemons grew on trees?
I thought they came from the produce section. 

I understand there has been 6 inches of snow at home. 
Not missing it. 

I'll enjoy my rental life for a few more days.
