Winter Games

We are loving the 2010 Winter Olympic Games. We have squeezed in more TV than normal by a lot. We are proud of the individual effort of the athletes as well as the team sportsmanship and effort.

Grandpa's Winter Games
While the girls had a jewelry party during the 2010 Winter Olympics Tim took the grandkids over to the local elementary school playground for some Winter Games of our own! We had the Giant Slalom on the slippery slides. The Downhill was accomplished by rolling down the hill collecting dead grass in hair with giggles all around.

Family Scans
Tim spent the morning on Saturday visiting his cousin Becky Pollei Hansen and her husband Richard (photo left) scanning Lambert family photos. We are preparing a Lambert family reunion and collecting treasures to share with everyone.

The Flame Burns Bright

Valentines Day
It was Valentines Day today. It was a great day complete with hearts and hugs. We enjoyed having Cheyenne with us. She went with us to Stake conference and was so good. She is our valentine today.

2010 Olympics
It is great to have the Olympics again. Even with the sad accident earlier in the week it is great to have the world come together again.

The Gospel Flame Spreads
The LDS Church News announced the change in LDS Missions (click on the link for the whole story). There were 14 missions eliminated in Europe, Australia, Northern Asia and the US by combining missions together. There were also 10 new missions created in Latin America, The Philippines, Africa and the US including the new St. George Utah mission.
