Photo Blogging Challenge: Happy

I'm linking up with A 'lil Hoohaa for September's Photo Blogging Challenge.  The theme for September was "happy," and I just knew this would be an easy theme for me! 
I spent lots of time with my granddaughters this month.  We went to fun places like Disneyland:

and the zoo:

On our way home from the zoo, we stopped at the hospital:

Their mommy had a baby boy--now the girls have a little brother!

Welcome, baby!

    1. Thank you. It was nice to have an easy theme!

  4. YOU GOT ME! I was thrilled to see Disneyland and all of you having so much fun. I was brought right back to my own childhood. We lived in San Diego for a few years and I remember loving our trips to Disney. Then came the "casually stopping by the hospital" because MOM HAD A BABY! Woo hooooo!!!!!! How WONDERFUL!!! Congratulations!

    1. Yes, the hospital stop was a happy occasion! :-)

  5. I can tell you're happy almost all the time, but you must feel like you're bursting with happiness this month. That little grandson is so cute! And his big sisters, too. Luck you.

  6. Congratulations on the new grandson!!!! Wow. I can't believe there are three of them now. We've "known" each other a long time!

    1. I guess we are gold friends! (Remember that Girl Scout song?)

  7. How can a person NOT be happy with both Disneyland and seeing a new life! The joy you captured with the new baby really made me smile. Congrats to everyone!

  8. Your pictures certainly scream Happy! How nice that you got extra time with them. Congrats on another grandchild!! Hope October is just as happy!

It's #RootsTech Giveaway Time!

In February of 2018, not knowing exactly what to expect, I attended RootsTech for the first time. What I learned is that RootsTech has something for everyone, from the most beginner of beginners to professional DNA genealogists. If you are interested in your own family story, come to RootsTech! RootsTech offers over 300 classes, amazing keynote speakers, an Expo Hall packed with all sorts of vendors, and evening cultural events. 

After an enjoyable experience in 2018, I returned in 2019, and even got my husband, John, to come one of the days to hear Saroo Brierley give a keynote address. 

Speaking of keynote addresses, this week RootsTech just announced that one of the speakers for 2020 will be David Hume Kennerly, a Pulitzer Prize winning photographer. I can't wait to hear his story!

RootsTech 2020 will celebrate its 10th anniversary, and is bound to be the best one yet! I have been delighted to be accepted as an official RootsTech ambassador. One of the perks is that I received a c…

Ten Things of Thankful: Nearly Christmas Edition

This is a busy time of year, and though it isn't as busy for me as it has been in past years, my to-do list still seems longer than the hours in the days. However, I find that when I spend time to focus on the reason for the season, I can feel the joy of Christmas and the tasks-at-hand fall back into their proper place. This week I had the opportunity to attend some wonderful events, and I'd love to take you along for a virtual tour:

Let's start at the Conference Center on Temple Square in Salt Lake City, Utah, last Friday night. The Tabernacle Choir joined with the Orchestra at Temple Square and the Bells on Temple Square, along with dancers and guest artists Kelli O'Hara and Richard Thomas, to present a spectacular Christmas concert. Although I couldn't record any of the performance, the following 2-minute video from the church provides an overview:

The last time John and I had attended a Christmas concert by the Tabernacle Choir, they were still holding those conc…

Ten Things of Thankful: So Long, October!

Although the number of good moments in October outnumbered the sad, I'm still thankful it is now November!

November brings:
1. a time change. I'm thankful that mornings will be lighter earlier.
2. John's birthday. I'm thankful for him, and love thinking of ways to make his day special.
3. Drexel's birthday. He will be 7 years old this month. Time passes so quickly! I'm thankful for him; he's a good dog. 
4. Thanksgiving. I'm thankful we have a designated day to remember to be thankful.
5. Oldest granddaughter's birthday. She will also be 7 this month. Time passes so quickly! I'm thankful for her; she's a sweet girl.

Other things I'm thankful for this week:
6. Books. I read Educated  and started It's All Relative. Educated is thought-provoking on many levels. I'm looking forward to finishing It's All Relative; I started it in the Baker City Public Library while waiting for our van to be repaired. My copy from Amazon should arrive late…
