40 Years and Counting


This weekend was my parents 40th anniversary. We had a huge party that was full of surprises. We had many special visitors that came to surprise my parents. We threw a huge brunch which was where they were supposed to find out about the day, but it was difficult to drag my workaholic father away from his tinkering. He finally came with my mom an hour late. We then had breakfast food for lunch and then went to the park for family pictures which my great friend Diane B. did. After that we went back to my house to watch the two DVD's of all of their photos set to music. Then we had dinner (which my aunties so kindly made all of the salads for) and watched my parents cut the cake. After the clean-up we headed up to Starlight Mountain Theater and watched Footloose the musical. My parents were called up on stage at intermission where my Dad was scared that they were going to make him dance. They were nice and had everyone sing to them. It was a wonderful day of visiting, food and surprises. Happy 40th anniversary Mom and Dad!

To My Beloved 5 Year Old...

...despite what you may have learned or witnessed from others, wastebaskets are not for bodily fluid waste. For the past five years we have been referring to a different kind of trash, garbage or waste that goes into a garbage can. Please use garbage cans appropriately.

Love,
Your Mother

More Talvyn Outbursts

Talking back to his parents after being asked to get a diaper for Daxtyn: "Why do I have to do everything around here?"

Talking about a cousin while they were playing: "Ahhh! He is treating me like a dog!"

Talking about going to visit his Aunt DeAnna: "I hate going there. All she ever does is say (he mimics this in his whinny voice) 'Hiiii, Talvyn' and I hate that!"

Talking about going to church: "I hate going to that crappy, poopy, stupid place. All they ever do is teach you bad stuff." (I am glad he doesn't know any real swear words because I am sure that those would have been used.)

And my favorite.........
While driving to Utah in the dark and in all seriousness: "Mom, Dad, I see dead people. I really really do. They are everywhere." (No, he hasn't seen the Sixth Sense and before this statement scared us too bad we asked him what they looked like. He answered that they look like white dresses with black eyes. Whew! No real dead people, I guess.) Later on the same drive he was convinced that he saw the Batman signal light up the sky too.
