Grandma and Grandpa Ellis

I was trying to update my blog a little tonight and ran across these pictures I asked my dad to take of Grandma and Grandpa Ellis. This was at the Mt. Timpanogas Temple on Aug 12th, 2010 just after Devin received his endowments. I thought they were cute :)

Does it ever feel like......

you are talking to yourself??? I've been checking this blog and trying to add every once in awhile (really should update my OWN family!) and I think i"m the only one here. Anyone out there??? Let's add some stuff and COMMENTS people!!!! Love you all! Miss you all! Hope all is well for you.

Our family is in the full swing of school days! The girls went to 3 whole days last week and survived! Devin is working working and trying to save the last minute money for his mission! He has enjoyed going to the temple, and has been to 5 different temples already in the last 2 1/2 weeks.

Well...the cookies n cream (or should I go for peppermint chocolate chip) ice cream is calling my name. I wish it would stop. It's our Sunday Sundae treat...we try not to eat it any other day. Gotta enjoy at least one day a week, right?????

Devin's Farewell

I thought I'd let you all know that Devin's Farewell will be on Sunday, Sept 26th at 9am here in Lehi. If you'd like to come down (or up), please let us know. We'll have some sort of brunch or lunch afterwards. We have a couple of extra beds...and if those are full----plenty of floor space if you don't mind that.

Devin also went to the temple yesterday and took out his endowments on his birthday. It was a quickly decided we didn't tell anyone really...sorry!! We realized Gma and Gpa Ellis were leaving town...and we tried to coordinate 3 work schedules FAST....but we got it done! What a great experience!!! We are so proud of Devin! He is looking forward to getting to Seattle

Yours and Mine Poem

Hey everyone I need some help finding the poem, "Yours and Mine" author Unkown. It's a poem about a family that has lost a child. It starts off about how the lord looked down on a couple and thought that they would make great parents to a little spirit of His. It then goes on to talk about the boy growing up and then about the early passing of the boy and how the Lord reminds them that that spirit was his and theirs. Ranley's cousin lost her little 5yr. old boy friday, and that poem seems to always bring some comfort to those who read it. It use to be on my parents old computer but it crashed and I can't find a hard copy anywhere. If any of you have a copy of it or know where one is I would appreciate you letting me know. I've searched for it and can't find it anywhere. Thanks again Bon
