Happy Mother's Day (the day after)

Kelly and Lindsey went grocery shopping together on Saturday and picked up some roses for me for Mother's Day that Lindsey arranged all by herself. I love the colors she chose and Kelly said he was really glad she was there because he wouldn't have had a clue what went well together. What sweethearts.

Lindsey made lunch for us after church yesterday too. The family watched the movie, Aragon, together, which we enjoyed. Kelly gave me a very beautiful Mother's Day card and what he wrote inside it, was even more of a treasure. Of course I'll keep it by my nightstand for weeks and look at it daily. I love my family. My mom had her mobile telephone turned off on Mother's Day and I tried to call three or four times. I tried her home phone first and left a message. We called Kelly's mom on the way to church and had a nice, long conversation with her and were able to wish her a happy Mother's Day, which was nice. She was very grateful, as always.

Happy late Mothers' Day, Kelly. I can tell by your delight in your family evidenced in your posts that you are a great mom. It sounds like a good day, which you deserve.

My mom never has her cell phone on either so it's hard to get hold of her. Luckily she answered the home phone yesterday!

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…
