We had a delightful time in Texas with Lynette, Anthony and their son Benson. He is a great little guy and I have included a picture which shows a little his dimples. They really are a lot deeper and better than they show. What a great time.
We spent 2 great weeks in China as part of a Tour. Sara Anne got us signed up for this wonderful tour and we had a great time. Some of the highlights were: the Great Wall of China (which of course we climbed on as far as we wanted to), The Forbidden City (which originally consisted of 999 rooms and is still huge), Chinese children, and Hong Kong (which is beautiful and has a different feel because of the British influence).

Two weeks ago we secured permission from President Hemingway to go the 4 1/2 hours down to see our newest grandson. Here a few pictures of the family and the newest Weston baby. We had a delightful time. We went down on Thursday and returned on Friday, so it was very short and very Sweet.

It's about time to post again. In the January Ensign Elder Nelson said that the First Vision took place in the Sacred Grove in April. So we think that we would like to see the Grove in April and that it would be a wonderful time of the year to come to Palmyra. If you had come to Palmyra in late March early April this is what the grove would look like. The spirit is still very strong in the grove and about one day in 20 it is warm in the Grove, but it does not have leaves on the trees and green underbrush.

Well, it is about time I updated our blog again. For the past couple of weeks Bryan has been inferring that we would not be having a Christmas Tree this year, because we do not have room. I have not felt that way so while he was involved in a meeting yesterday morning I rearranged our home a little and provided a perfect place for a small tree. I then went on line and found where we could go cut down a tree. When he came home he was quickly convinced that we could do it.
It was great to go and cut down a tree, but we found that it is not half so much fun as when we have kids to to with us, whether we are in Oregon, up past Logan on snowmobiles, out to Tooele, or just down to the Christmas tree lot in Bountiful. As we got to the Tree Farm, nobody was around. We drove into the farm a ways and as we started out a pickup approached us. We were told that the farm is only open on weekends, but if we would follow him he would let us get a tree. After we had followed him for about 3 miles he left us with a saw to cut the tree, then he returned about 1/2 hour later to collect.
As you can see by the photos we now have a tree and although I did not bring any decorations we do feel a little like Christmas.
