Tribute to the late LDS President Hinckley

I will miss President Hinckley. This is worth watching.


That's really cool. Thank you for sharing. :)

Wow, if you feel like you haven't cried enough, watch this clip.

I am amazed to hear that Glen Beck felt the same way I did upon hearing the news. I had dreaded the day that President Hinckley would leave us. I knew that I would be so upset. But, like Glen, I surprised myself. My very first thought was, "That's wonderful ! He finally is with his wife once again!" Yes, it was a warm feeling.

He will be missed more than words can express, but I wouldn't want it to be any other way. It was time. He had given his all. And then some. It was time for this "good and faithful servant" to return home into the loving arms of his Savior, and his beloved wife Marjorie.

That was so awesome. I didn't react the same way Glenn did, I was bawling my head off for purely selfish reasons of course. I wanted President Hinckley here with us forever! But as the initial shock wore off, the happiness I felt for him prevailed. He is now in a place that we all hope to be in one day.
Thanks for posting that video. Now you know why I am such a HUGE Glenn Beck fan. He has a heart.
Thank you for your wonderful post and tribute to President Hinkley. I am glad to see that you appreciated Glen Becks comments as much as I did.

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…
