    A TRUE CLASSIC - HAPPY BIRTHDAY DAD - Sunday, March 22, 2009 - Everyone gathered at our home for dinner, cake and ice cream in celebration of PAPA SESSLER'S 81st Birthday!! Papa picked out his cake at Costco. It was white with strawberry filling and was decorated with a big yellow sun and pink, blue and purple flowers with little buzzing bees. The great grandkids all LOVED his cake and each asked for a special part of the cake - Hailee - pink flower, Bailey - purple flower, Alex - blue flower, Logan - yellow sun's eyes, etc. A fun time was had by all!!

    HAPPINESS - For these two desert dwellers, Garrett and Amy, experiencing the four seasons of Utah has been such a delight. Their favorite drive is up Provo Canyon and on through Midway and to Pine Creek past Oakley. They also love Sundance Ski Resort and the surrounding areas. It’s just a hop and a skip from their driveway in Orem so they get to explore often. My jealous longing is lessened as they share their beautiful photos with me.

    BIG SMILES - LIFE IS BEAUTIFUL - Hailee was so afraid that when she turned 16 that she wouldn’t have any dates. She said, "no one has asked me out." And our reply was, “You aren’t 16 yet! Just wait until your birthday!” Well, it’s been a week since her 16th birthday and she has had 3 dates already. Silly girl! Who WOULDN’T want to date her?!! 20 Jan 2019 Template: ScrapSimple Digital Layout Templates: Patterns A Plenty #3 by Aimee Harrison Kit: Value Pack: Beautiful Life by Aimee Harrison

    2019 - THIS IS MY YEAR

    2019 - THIS IS MY YEAR - December 31, 2018 - New Year’s Eve - found me a bit stranded and snowed in - in the mountain community of Show Low, AZ. I had already been there for 5 days and the water pipes to my RV were frozen and would not thaw until the sun came out for several days and the snow melted - which wouldn’t happen for 4 more days. I had enough food and drinking water for 10 days and I was rescued by my family on the 9th day. They came with snow shovels and enough kid-power to dig me out and gave my car the push it needed to get over the frozen ice and up the hill to civilization. What an adventurous way to start the new year!! With a beginning like that, this year can’t help but be a GREAT one!! Bring it on!!

    SNOW BEAUTIFUL - Garrett and Amy always find the coolest places on their drives through the canyons near their home in Utah Valley. Their favorite place to explore is the quaint town of Midway, Utah and the surrounding areas. I just love this old rustic barn with it’s post and rail fencing.

    SEW VINTAGE - My grandmother, Anna Helena “Ann” (L), and her younger sister, Teresa Francesca “Frances” (R), modeling their homemade dresses in the early 1900’s. They made all their clothing on an old, foot-powered treadle sewing machine. Many of their dresses were made from cotton, flour sack material.

    BEAUTIFUL MOMENTS - I Am Most Thankful for Joyful Memories Captured - We went for a stroll through Sterne Park in Littleton, Colorado, early in November 2018. The wild life was abundant that day. Honking wild geese soared overhead and joined the various types of ducks, including Wood and Mallard, that were floating on the lake. Other small creatures scampered through the trees and two squirrels played a friendly game of tag. I am so thankful for this beautiful world our Heavenly Father created for us.There is so much beauty to be found all around us if we’ve eyes to see and ears to hear.

    REAL PUMPKIN PATCH - 04 OCT 2018 - "So happy to experience a real-life pumpkin patch! When we arrived at Rob’s office to pick him up, we were trying to decide if we should go as it was an hour north with rain in the forecast. There’s a real fun one right across the street from his office but not the kind that you pick pumpkins right off the vine. I said, “I’ve just never been to a real pumpkin patch before.” And Q said, “Can’t we just go to the fake one?” It just made Rob & I laugh (...the fake one). So glad we went & the rain let up. We had the place to ourselves at Pack Farms, Farmington, Utah. ~by Melis Template: ScrapSimple Digital Layout Templates: Florabundia #2 by Aimee Harrison Kit: Under The Canopy by Aimee Harrison

    HELLO HALLOWEEN - 11 OCT 2011 - We had a Family Halloween Party early in October so it didn’t interfere with Trick or Treating on the 31st. Our G-kids were excited to wear their costumes and trick or treated to all of the outside doors (10) in our house as the adults scrambled from door to door inside to hand out the candy. They loved it so much that we repeated it several times until all of the candy was gone. Template: Spooktacular #4 by Heartstrings Scrap Art Kit: Value Pack: Hello Halloween by Aimee Harrison
