We got LOST on Wednesday night

I have plenty of activities and events of this past week to comment on and share, and will attempt to catch up, one post at a time as quickly as I can squeeze time in for it. I'll start off with this fun invitation. We were invited to a really enjoyable dinner party to watch the season finale of LOST on Wednesday night, and encouraged to come as a character from the television series. There were four couples attending and we had an incredible feast. The food was so delicious, but my only wish was that I had been more hungry since there was so much to choose from. Everything was so incredibly tasty and plentiful and Christine and Mike were awesome hosts. I was grateful they invited us to their gorgeous new home to watch the last night of Lost until January 2008.
Jeremy's fake tattoo was a decent attempt at Dr. "Jack's" body art.
The Dharma pantry was impressive and just the right touch for getting us into the Lost mindset.
Amy came as "Sun" as her native Asian genes were the perfect match. She showed up with a lovely, assorted tray of sushi, which we savored.
Daniella "Rousseau," otherwise known as Karen, arrived at the dinner party with "Ben's" late father, Roger, "Work Man" at her side. (In real life, John previously worked as Mike's boss, years ago. Karen and John get together every week to watch Lost with Christine and Mike.)
Check out the Dharma brand root beer that "Roger and Rousseau" brought. Karen also made a delicious sweet and savory tomatillo dish to serve with the fish tacos, along with a veggie tray from "Sun's garden."
Here's our poor attempt at coming as "Claire" and "Charlie." Kelly is indeed a musician, but came directly from work and didn't so much as have a guitar with him or his knuckles wrapped as character props. I did manage to borrow one of Lindsey's dolls, and removed the dress and bonnet to transform her into an "Aaron," and then borrowed Christopher's cherished blue blankie to swaddle my tv baby in.
Here are the hosts with the most--Mike and Christine. They moved from the Cedar Park ward into our ward a few months ago and we look forward to getting to know them better and already have a date for the season opening of Lost in January to see with them. Doesn't Christine make a cute "Kate" and Mike a mean looking "Mikhail?" We had an enjoyable night out and loved the clever idea for a party.

Now for my commentary on the finale: "future" Jack is really messed up. I am not really sure what to think of his flash-forwards. Are they real? It didn't make sense with him mentioning his dad. I'm not sure where the show is going, but it was a pretty good ending. Not fantastic, but it kept my interest. It was funny when Hurley came plowing through in the VW van to save everyone and also when Rousseau smacked Ben and had a look of satisfaction. I'm still a fan of the show and hope the writers do a good job for the next season. I was sad to see Charlie not put up a fight to survive and accept his fate as Desmond had foretold. I still don't trust Juliette. I was annoyed at Jack for waiting until Kate saw Juliette plant a kiss on him, to finally express his love for Kate. I'm guessing that Ben might be the one in the funeral home where nobody showed up. Or maybe Locke? Who knows. I've got several months to find out.

I'M SO BUMMED WE MISSED THAT!!! I was way too busy trying to pack, get Josh packing for his trip, and deal with Brooklyn's screaming from her teething. Ugh! Plus I had a few clients put in urgent orders that morning so I was up past midnight. I'm glad y'all had fun! That sounds awesome.

Oh my gosh that is the cutest idea! I love it!!! So fun what they did with all the food and dharma logo. Love it.

So many crazy things in the finale this year- I was also disappointed Charlie didn't put up a fight at the end...

That is so clever. I am glad that you took lots of pictures I think that you make a great Claire. I have many little thoughts and concerns for the upcoming seasons as well, and I pointed out to James about Jack's dad being mentioned multiple times as well. Hmmmm? I guess we will just have to wait and see.

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…
