We LOVE all Misssionaries!!!

I Love to invite the missionaries into our home for dinner?
* I love to cook and I love to have people eat what I cook!
* I love the example that they set for Tanner, Branden, Donivan and my grandsons!
* I love the spirit they bring into our home as they share a message and remind us of our responsibilities to be great examples to our friends and neighbors!
* I love to have my older boys gather with us and listen to their missionary experiences. Not only do we as a family love to hear their stories but I hope that somehow it might strengthen these missionaries as they are currently ambassadors of the Lord. Sometimes even Mark will share an experience that strengthened him long ago on the streets of Chicago!
* I LOVE to serve and through my service to them, I only hope that some sweet mother in England is taking good care of my son, Ryan!

St. Patrick's Day

Happy St. Patrick's Day!
Breakfast included green pancakes, green milk and green smoothies! We looked all day for those not wearing green so we could give them pinchies!

Happy Birthday Ryan!!! He finally sent us some updated pictures! You can tell that life is wonderful!!!

Baptism of Christine Stuart. Elder Warner is doing the baptizing and it was his last day in the mission field! What a treat for both Elders!

WOW - Instead of being a runner, he should have been a cheerleader in High School! (NOT)

Zone P'day. Last Elder on the right.

Ryan is the second one from the left!

Last one on the right.

Look at those white legs! Even the brown boy has white legs!!!

Arizona Zone Leaders! I am sure we will get to know these Elders very well. Elder Armstrong has already visited us!

Elder Warner from Utah, one of his favorites!

The Church of England that we attended with permission. He may have power, but we have the AUTHORITY!

This is where the sorting hat was filmed for Harry Potter!

Can we have a little bit of fun! Elder Warner and Elder Lee


Who says that England doesn't get any snow. We received a record of 9 inches just from this storm alone!

One of the oldest trees in England. That's my boy! I am so grateful to Heavenly Father for his watchful care! Ryan is a great example to all!

Even the little ones LOVE music!

Rachelle will hate me for posting this picture but I think it is so cute. The grandbabies LOVE to sit on Aunt Shellie's lap while she plays the piano and sings! Even at 2 months old, they just stop crying and listen! Braxton comes running everytime she sits down to play!
