I made this template in honor of my father-in-law who passed away Monday from cancer.  He was an amazing man and a wonderful father and grandfather.  He always had a smile on his face and a kind word to say.  He loved the outdoors and nature.  He was a park ranger at Craters of the Moon National Monument in Idaho during the summer.  My kids loved going there and getting the personal tour.  Whenever he would visit, he would set my teenaged son on the right path to getting his scout requirements done and working toward his Eagle.  He always wanted to hear them play their band instruments when he visited and would tell them to keep playing.  He enjoyed hearing them play.  He was always taking pictures, sometimes more than we like but we are grateful he did.  He never left me without giving me a big kiss on the cheek.  The last words he said to me were “Sweet daughter,”  as I hugged him last week when we visited.  I cannot even describe the profound loss we are feeling.  I know he has gone on to a better place and that the Lord has other things for him to do now.  I feel that he will be watching over us and I know that we will see him again one day.

My Little Ironies

**My daughter lost her glasses in the snow on the way home from school in January. Someone found them in March and turned them into the school office! Amazingly enough, the school remembered we lost them in January. Wow!
**Just when I think he knows better, my 10 year old son plugs the bathroom sink and the emergency drain in the sink basin to soak his grow creature, turns on the water, and forgets about it until we notice water flooding out from under the bathroom door! And yes, he locked the door so no one would bother the grow creature!!
**It's time for another worn out pair of the hubby's pants to disappear! **Aren't kids suppose to be the only ones who are attached to clothing?
**My 4 year old says she needs "peace and quite"!!!!!
**My Husband says there's a perfectly good reason for the leatherman being in my dish drainer.
**I have a leatherman (fancy pocket knife) in my dish drainer. I don't know why.

**My 10 year old son informed me that people have only discovered about half of the world's caves (thank you BBC and planet earth!)

**My daughter's medical bills added up to about $18,000, but we got a free sippy cup and a ball signed by the Utah JAZZ Dancers!
**I put safety locks on the tops of my outside doors to keep my three year old from escaping and she figured out how to open them with a broom in approximately five minutes.
**I bought the EXPENSIVE vacuum this time only to find that my 3-year-old took it apart with a screwdriver!
