My little adorable visitor today

Sherrie, my neighbor, called me this morning to see if I could watch Scott for her while she played tennis. He is such a delight to have come over. It was still kind of early for me, so I thought I could sort of halfway sleep on my bed while he watched some kids' programs on PBS, some dragon show, and some other new shows that weren't around when mine were little. He was hanging out in my room at the end of my bed, then saw the stash of pillows on the ground and went over to plop on top of them. I looked at him and told him how cute he looked and said to stay there, while I go downstairs to get my camera. He did just that. But when I came up with my camera, he had this silly face to show me. You can tell he has older siblings!
He's obviously no stranger to photos and had fun posing for me. It was so funny. He cracked me up.
He was getting into his cheesy smiling for the camera, so then I stopped and showed him the pictures.
He thought it was fun, so we took a few more.
This little guy is such a sweetheart and I love having him over to hang out with me.
He wanted to take a picture of me this time. So I let him. I love his work!

He is adorable and those pillows look like the perfect place to relax and watch tv! My grandfather ALWAYS cut off our heads when he took pictures of us...that gave me a good little laugh/memory when I saw the picture Scott took of you!

How fun! How clever of you to entertain him with a little picture show of himself. That cracks me up that he completely cut off your head? I wonder if he could see that he was doing that? I am glad that you had a good time. If you ever want to borrow Gwen just let me know.

Cute Kelly! You look like a great baby sitter. Too bad I never hit you up for that when I was in Austin. BTW, the dragon movie is Dragon Tales- Kennedy loves it. :)

"Ask and ye shall receive!" I know I've made offers to some of you mommies that I'm friends with. If I don't have anything going on, I'm up for it! If I can't, I'll let you know.

What a doll! He should model.

I think he should model too. Hooly's right about the show, the others were probablyClifford, Barney, Between the Lions, Big World...shall I continue? I know them all, and thank heaven for them in the wee early hours!

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…
