It's Friday! We love the weekends.

My kids love Fridays, just like I do. This morning when I was taking Lindsey to seminary, Christopher called me to say, "Happy Friday!" Tonight Lindsey and I will be going to help out with the Wilkinson quintuplets. This will be my first time to take her with me and I hope she's as excited about it as I am. This picture was taken during spring break when the three of us went to Carino's for lunch. I hope YOU have an exceptional Friday!

Hi Kelly! I can't believe how kids have grown up. I have enjoyed keeping up with you and your famnily on your blog. So much in fact, that you have motivated me to start my own family blog. You'll have to check Jody, Noah and I out at our blog: http://virginiatexans.blogspot.com/

Have a great Friday! Jennifer

I love Fridays too Kelly. That is so cool to go and get to take care of all those babies...I cannot even imagine. Your kids are adorable. BTW I got your sweet card today. Thanks you so much. Sorry, I am saying this on the blog but it is easier then going and opening my email right now. You are so very thoughtful, and I appreciate it. Take Care, and Happy Friday to you too.

Kelly...thanks for the help with my blog- I went in and made those changes to the settings. I'm so glad you told Michelle about my blog. I am so happy to hear about Gloria and Karina and their weddings. I am so proud of both of them!!

My Friday was great! I spent most of the day reading a manuscript for a book that'll be published in October.

Fridays are the best! Especially now that my hubby has Fridays off :) (After many, many years of begging him to do so, now he wonders why it took him so long to comply to my request!) There's nothing better than going out for some great food and then catching a great dvd at home!

Hi Kelly!!
You found me and that is sooo cooolll! Our family profile has been with LDS family services for a few years now and we, at least for the past year and a half or so, have been a little out of touch with them as we have been blessed to adopt two children thru the state foster care system!! Children are such a joy and a huge blessing. It's been fun seeing your blog!! You look as beautiful as ever, like you forgot that you're s'pose to be aging! :)
Anyway, thanks for looking me up and I want to send you our latest family picture as soon as we can pick it up from the photo shop.
Love ya,
Yvonne (Zuster Young) & Co.

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…
