Lindsey's theater project

Yum, yum, yum!

Tasty home-made smoothies for the theater kids.

Lindsey has been working on a group project for her theater class for the past couple of weekends and yesterday the students were back at our house filming and editing again. I concocted some refreshing strawberry-banana-pineapple-raspberry-peach smoothies for a snack and they all loved it and were impressed with the umbrella straws that Christopher garnished the drinks with. Vinny asked me if he could leave a tip and I told him to just try to get an "A" on the project. What a fun time they seemed to have had. I have yet to see their work and am holding out to view the final project. Kelly has helped them with some of the photoshop work and editing.

Nice work! I think that is the perfect treat for hard working students. And the umbrellas make them so much more fun. You are such a great mom.
Ok, what I wanna know is this....Did you just happen to have those cute umbrellas already or did you buy them especially for that day? That is such a fun treat. Thanks for the idea :) You know I love being inspired by your ideas!

Funny, Summer! Good question. I had them on hand. I don't remember what I bought them for, but knew they'd come in handy sometime. And they did. You should have seen the kids eyes when they came into the kitchen for their smoothies. They loved it and Lindsey thanked me the next day after school when she'd seen the kids again. It was fun. I want a smoothie right now!

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…

Flagstaff House Executive Chef Mark Monette's Family Legacy

Mark Monette, executive chef and partner of Flagstaff House, has been the man behind the scenes in the kitchen for countless special occasions and celebrations. This fine dining restaurant situated a few miles up Flagstaff Road in Boulder, perched at the Flatirons' edge with a bird's-eye view of the city, is where Monette has spent more than three decades fine-tuning his craft in this family run business. The restaurant and staff have received accolades and notoriety locally and nationally, including recognition for being named "Top Ten Restaurant in Boulder," "Most Romantic Restaurants in America" and "Best American Cuisine and Best Wine Selection." (This article is from a Q&A interview I did with him in February, 2017.)
Your father, Don Monette, bought the Flagstaff House in 1971 when you were 10 years old. What do you remember about the restaurant back in those days?
"We would come up here in the summer and work, and it was just busy al…
