Greek Philosophy

I have to say this describes Jason and myself perfectly. We have grown together, grown apart and then back together again, but through it all we were so intertwined we couldn't imagine a life without the other.

“Being “in love” is a temporary madness, it erupts like volcanoes and then subsides. And when it subsides, you have to make a decision. You have to work out whether your roots have so intertwined together that it is inconceivable that you should ever part. Because this is what Love is. Love is not breathlessness, it is not excitement, it is not the promulgation of promises of eternal passion, it is not the desire to mate every second or minute of the day, it is not lying awake at night imagining them kissing every part of your body. That is just being "in love" which any of us can convince ourselves we are. Love itself is what is left over when being in love has burned away, and this is both an art and a fortunate accident.” In time your roots will grow towards each other underground, and when all the pretty blossoms have fallen from your branches you will find that you are one tree and not two.” But remember this you can either continue to grow together over time or you can grow apart, that is up to you. You can grow apart and then come back together, again that is up to you. But only you can stay together or grow apart. One thing is for sure, love will not survive without you continuing to help it grow, you must work at it every day of your life if you want love to stay. – Greek Philosophy

Easter '13

We had a great Easter this year. The kids got to hunt for Easter eggs three different times - they loved it! We all had a good time celebrating Easter. We are grateful for celebrating this special holiday. We are thankful for our Savior and all he did in our behalf.  We did some of the Easter egg hunts and Grandpa & Grandpa Erickson's house, in their neighborhood and at Aunt Kim's house too!  Those are some lucky and very Loved kids!!!

Here's some pic's we took, hope you enjoy them.

These pic's were taken at Aunt Kim's house in Salem, UT.

Older Woman Are Great

I read this on facebook and thought it was very funny!

After being married for 50 years, I took a careful look at my wife one day and said, "Fifty years ago we had a cheap house, a junk car, slept on a sofa bed and watched a 10-inch black and white TV, but I got to sleep with a hot 23-year-old girl every night.

Now, I have a $500,000 home, a $45,000 car, a nice big bed and a large screen TV, but I'm sleeping with a 69-year-old woman. It seems to me that you're not holding up your side of things."

My wife is a very reasonable woman. She told me to go out and find a hot 23-year-old girl and she would make sure that I would once again be living in a cheap house, driving a junk car, sleeping on a sofa bed and watching a 10-inch black and white TV.

Aren't older women great? They really know how to solve an old guy's problems.

Here's Sydney posing for her 5th year pic. She is getting so big (still little though lol)! She went to her check-up and she was very brave and very excited to hear she didn't have to get any shots or pokey's. The Dr. said she is doing great. She now weighs 37 lbs. and is 41 ½" long.

Sydney Birthday '13

Sydney's 5th b-day party was a success! She had her 1st official family/friends Princess Party. She had a blast and loved her cake, presents and having her friends/cousins over. A big thank you to all who came and celebrated this special day with her/us.  We can't believe she is now 5 yrs. old. Our littles is getting so big!!!
