He Returned With Honor!

A missionary leaving for two years is something that I don't think I'll ever quite get used to. They are missed so much. However, we wouldn't want it any other way. It is a fun experience writing for two years, praying, sending care packages, etc. And of course, there is nothing like seeing them again after serving an honorable mission. Elder Kenne Worthen served for the past two years in the Texas Houston East mission. Wednesday, January 21st he returned to his family waiting at the Idaho Falls Airport. Some of the family had other commitments but there were also several who could attend. We had Great-grandma Zella Hansen, G & G Denney, G Crystal, Christina, Courtney, Kyler, Amiee, Kyla, Heidi, Aden, Kyrstina, Nathan, Kenne's friend Matt Davis, and of course Kerry and I. Smiles were big, hugs were freely given, and a good time was had by all :)

The Birth of a Teenager!

Happy Birthday Nathan! We love you. We also hope that you are a nice teenager and take it easy on your old parents. We were able to have a family dinner and ice cream cake party for Nathan. We had lots of fun.

Happy New Year!

Life has been pretty busy for me lately and I haven't been able to update my blog but I finally have a few minutes and decided I wanted to get to it. This photo is of Kerry, Brenda and Grandma Crystal on New Year's Eve.

Happy Birthday Brother Brian!

Today is Brian's birthday and if he were here we'd play games, work on quilts, eats lots of yummy foods and look at stamps. But since he's not I'll just add this photo of him to my blog. :)

(So Brian, if you don't like these photos, you need to send some you like (smile) )

Kyla Turns 2!

Happy Birthday to our beautiful little granddaughter Kyla Brielle Denney. We went to Hyrum and Amiee's house today for Kyla's 2nd birthday party and we had so much fun. Amiee made the cutest Elmo invitations and cupcakes. Kyla was very pleased with the whole thing she almost couldn't wait. We had given her a baby for Christmas and so for her birthday we gave her clothes and bottles. Her other grandma gave her a shopping cart and she quickly had the baby riding in the shopping cart, feeding her. It was really cute. It was fun not only to see Kyla but to watch Hyrum and Amiee enjoy the event as their little girl turns one year older.
