Kelly & Kelly's Twentieth Anniversary

Twenty years ago, Kelly and I were married here in the Salt Lake Temple! Our anniversary was yesterday and we spent the past four days in New York City celebrating. We flew to the Big Apple on Friday morning and got back LATE last night and had an action-packed weekend seeing two Broadway shows, within walking distance of our Times Square Marriott Marquis hotel room, sightseeing around Long Island, enjoying a leisurely horse-drawn carriage ride through Central Park, peering over the city from the Empire State Building, dining on delicious food, and spending the time together, loving every minute of it.

For the past twenty years, I have been the wife of a wonderful, unique, intelligent, handsome, talented man, who I am MUCH more in love with NOW than I was in 1986, (which was immensely back then). I love the things we've learned together, the experiences we have enjoyed together, being able to hang in there through the uneven journey of life, being parents to two wonderful children that were brought into our family through the miracle of birth, establishing a home together where I hope our kids can bring their spouses and kids to, etc. As Faith Hill says, "I have been blessed" and I look forward to the next twenty years with my sweet and wonderful husband and want to thank him for loving me!


Ok, WOW!!! This is my favorite posting of yours yet. What a gorgeous picture and what sweet things you've said. I have chills and a tear in my eye. Kelly, all wives should love their husbands like you do and I'm convinced I will after 20 years. You are great role models of a good marriage and I'm THRRRRILLED that y'all had such a good time!!!

Fun with Ninnies and Nini

Our family got to attend the monthly stake temple day at the Taipei temple on Saturday.   Lindsey and Christopher did their temple work, then waited outside on the beautiful grounds and at the chapel next door until we were finished with our session. After that, we enjoyed hamburgers at a place we heard about called California Grill, then did some exploring.
Lindsey arrived last week from Rexburg, completing 32 credit hours and her first year of college at Brigham Young University-Idaho. We are so glad to have her home with us!  She will be with us until she starts school again in September and will be taking two classes online in the meantime.  In addition to Lindsey's arrival, we've been blessed to have the company of 7-year-old Nini (her real name is Yeh Min-Yu) with us this week.  She's so darling and we love having her around too.  It's kind of funny that when Lindsey was a little toddler and she could not say her name well, she called herself Ninnies.  So we h…

Isaac's creation

One year ago today, this little angel came into our world, sent directly from heaven, without a doubt.  Isaac is our fourth child, but the first that I gave birth to.  He was the result of a successful fertility treatment called In Vitro Fertilization (IVF), our first and only attempt.  The fact that I was 48 years old when I got pregnant, is a miracle in and of itself.  I had long since given up the idea of ever being able to experience pregnancy and childbirth after having been diagnosed with unexplained infertility, until a rare contact from a dear friend had renewed my desire.  This is the story of how Isaac came to be, and the loving environment that welcomed him.  Take note of the numerous small miracles along the way, leading up to our pursuing this dream.

There was a three-week window of opportunity when our family had come to our Austin home for the holidays, while we were living in Taiwan for one year.  My long, lost friend sent us a beautiful Christmas card, perhaps the fi…

Class of 2030 first day of school

First day of kindergarten was a huge hit!
The only thing that went wrong, other than arriving to school a few hours late due to our flight from Denver and no sleep the night before from seeing the 2017 American solar eclipse in Casper, Wyoming, was losing two small, black buttons from his brand new blue and gray plaid Hurley shirt.
My little boy started kindergarten and I'm so excited for the freedom it will give me while he's away at school, but especially I'm glad for the fun times he will have in learning and being with new friends.  He was so ready and excited!  I didn't know any of the kindergarten teachers at the school, but after meeting Mrs. C, I'm so glad we got her!  Her body language and introduction to Isaac were so sweet and made him feel safe, loved and welcome.
I ordered this fun and festive balloon from ATXBubbles and they delivered it to our front door.  Isaac loved his after school surprise.
He picked out this backpack because the inside says &quo…
