Flowers for Sherry

These are from our family. Page loves blue so she ordered a spray all in blue.

Dear friends Roger and Sina Coguill sent these beautiful birds of paradise

The Doctors and Staff of Powell Valley Clinic sent these. Yellow are her favorite type of roses.

The L.A. Temple workers that worked with Sherry surprised us with this awesome spray of flowers

Sherry always wanted a blanket of baby tears for her casket. It took Page some doing, but she was able to find somebody willing to do it.

Day at the Los Angeles Temple

One of the highlights of our week in California was to take Grandma Sherry to the temple. She was feeling good that day and we took advantage of it.

Here is Page, Sean and Sherry outside the temple. What I loved was all the green grass and blooming flowers. Not in Wyoming!

I had to take a self photo of myself too

This is a special temple to us. We all were married here (me and Page, my parents, and Page's parents too).


Sean and I drove to California the day after Christmas to be with Page. We decided to take a day to go to the Happiest Place on Earth!

We got to see Mickey and a lot of other Disney characters

Everything was decorated for Christmas. It was beautiful

Little did we know that 100,000 other people decided to come that day. The rains in California had stopped and people wanted to have some fun. They broke all time attendance records this day and actually closed the gates and stopped selling tickets by 10:30 a.m.

Here come all the people, but despite the crowds, we had a GREAT time !!!
We love Disneyland

Pirates and Ghosts

Our first ride. Only had to wait about 20 minutes

New Orleans Square in the background while waiting for Pirates

Then we went to Haunted Mansion and they changed the ride to reflect "Nightmare Before Christmas". We never saw it like this before.

They decorated the Haunted Mansion

and everything had pumpkins on it


Sean on the Haunted Mansion ride

Then we went on Whinnie the Pooh because it was the shortest line in the park


Page and Sean are thrilled

yum yum honey

I use to get really excited when we caught them at the right time. Still do.
