"You likewise will have significant experiences. I hope that you will write them down and keep a record of them, that you will read them from time to time and refresh your memory of these meaningful and significant things. Some of them may be funny. Some may be of significance only to you. Some of them may be sacred and quietly beautiful. Some may build one upon another until they represent a lifetime of special experience."

--President Hinckley, from a BYU speech: "Experiences Worth Remembering" given 31 October 2006

Family Fun In Washington

Earlier this month Ken and I took a road trip up to Washington to visit Justen and Marsha. It was a full-fledged family event! Katie and Jeremey and their girls also drove up to Washington, and so did Paul, Barb and Kelsey. On our way home, Ken and I stopped to visit Sarah and Todd and their cute boys in Idaho Falls. What a trip!

One of the nights we were there we had a karaoke night. Now that was a blast!

Karaoke night just might have to become a Willson-Family tradition up in Washington!

Me, Beautiful Kelsey, Paul and Beautiful Barb

Kelsey got this puppy for her 21st birthday. Isn't he the cutest thing there ever was!

Sarah and Sweet Baby Jackson

Now Jackson just might be the cutest thing there ever was!

Sarah and Todd's new home is so beautiful. Sarah has it decorated so nicely. This is (quite obviously) their kitchen.

This is the outside of Sarah and Todd's new home.

Our trip up to Washington was such a fun and memorable trip. Ken and I really enjoyed the beautiful drive up, and it was so fun to spend quality time with family that we don't get to see quite as often as we'd like. I hope we can make it up there for another trip soon!

Grandparents Day

Recently Ken and I were honored at our Grandson Wesley's school for Grandparents Day! Ken and I are so lucky to be Wesley's Grandma and Grandpa. It was so much fun to spend time with Wesley at his school and see his classroom, where he sits, and meet his teacher and all his little classmates. Maybe I'm biased, but I think we have the cutest Grandchildren in the world!

Studious Wesley... this is where Wesley sits in his classroom.

Christmas Gifts

Jacey is so talented and creative! This year she and Nick gave Ken a BYU jacket that she MADE (Ken is the biggest BYU fan ever!) and they gave me a family picture that Jacey drew. What special Christmas gifts from my beautiful daughter and son-in-law!
