Random Grandpa and babies pictures

Rachael Miller's baptism

Grandpa Lynn baptized her.  She was the happiest girl on the planet! Grandma Sylvia bought her this absolutely beautiful dress for her special day.

Rachael Miller (Tyler & Amanda Long's daughter), after taking all the missionary discussions (at Sylvia and Lynn's house) was able to be baptized on Saturday, March 6, at 7:00 p.m. at our Sharon Stake Center.  So many people from our ward and their new ward, and family members came to support her it was very cool! 
Before the baptism, Sylvia and Lynn served a very nice dinner for everyone that came.  They went to a lot of work and we all appreciated it.  It was so yummy! The Dalmeister!Byerly, Dakota, Ivy, Zoey, Lily, and cute Cora RoseLongs, Miller, and friendsJaney Nelson and Grandma Shirley Long with Sylvia.  It was a great occasion, and a lovely evening. 

Our trip to Logan to visit Chelsea, Tyson, and adorable Afton

As usual . . . . read from the bottom up!  Afton really loved to read with Grandpa.  While we were there, Chelsea whipped up a really cute scripture bag as a gift for Rachael Miller's baptism on Saturday.  (I didn't get a picture of it but . . . . . trust me it was cute!)

Do we look alike (with our mouths gapping open)?
I didn't have to work on March 5th, so Gordon and I went up to Logan to visit our cute kids that we don't get to see often enough.  Afton was so cute, we couldn't get enough of her.  We found out she really loves Gossner's Chocolate Milk!!  We had such a fun weekend up in Logan.  It was deeeeee-lightful!!  Thanks Chels and Tyson!!

Our evening with Tim, Brandi, and Elsie Neilsen . . . so very fun!

While we were in Logan, Tim and Brandi (my nephew) invited us over for dinner.  It was so very yummy.  After dinner, Tim went and bought ice cream for dessert and then we played a new game named "Guillotine".  It was such a fun game.  Brandi won! We tried to find it in the game store in Logan the next day but they were out of them.  We want to get it
Afton and Elsie . . . such a cute pair

Next generation of Flag Twirlers

As usual you have to read/look from the bottom up.  (I'm still trying to figure out how to post pictures from
the top down)
Isn't she so very cute?!?!?
Grandpa promptly went out and found the materials to make Jojo two flags.  One to take home and one to leave at our house.  She loves these flags.  She loves to "spin" and now is learning how to "toss". 

Lexie has been teaching Jocelyn the fine art of flag twirling. Jojo has gone and watched Lexie coach her Winterguard team at Lone Peak High School and thinks that is so fun. So Lexie crafted this jr. size flag for Jojo to spin. I must say she is pretty dang good at it for being only 22 months old.

Embrace Your Authentic Style

I saw this house and thought of you, mom... I love the bright colors!  Check out the whole article on this circus-inspired house here.  It's worth it to check out the whole blog, though, if you have the time!
