Happy Birthday granddaughter

June 23rd is our beautiful Kaylee Jean's birthday!
She is turning 8 years old!

Her Aunt Jen & Uncle Cory & cousins are coming soon to her house to give her a big bear hug from Grandma Jewkes! 

I can hardly believe it has been eight years since her very, very exciting birth~~!

I love you sooooooooo much Kaylee - have a special day and know we love you so very much and proud of how kind you are and how much you love to learn and try new things. 
Happy Birthday, love, Gram J.

~ saying goodby to Steve

Great friend and co-worker, Steve T. is leaving for a new position.  I've worked with him for 5+ years.  He is Jill's age and in fact when to school with Jill at Bountiful High.  I think of him almost like one of my kids.  He has been so much fun to work with, he has a great sense of humor and such a good young man, husband to his sweet Heidi and dad to Kaitlyn, Michael and Logan.  When either one of us has had to vent, we knew the other would listen~likewise when something really hysterical happened in the office-I could count on Steve to GET IT!!  and laugh with me~!

I wish him well, he will get to be outside more as he will be working on the Church's rec-camps in the northern Utah area and he has a smile on his face for that and also a spring in his step!  Ties will be the exception not the rule from here on out!  ~~~ and even though I will miss him so much the no tie thing really brings a "Steve grin"!

The Lord calls~~

Don't ever think just because you are eighty years old that the Lord doesn't have need of you!

My sweet Daddy was called as first counselor in a new bishopric in Coquille, Oregon on Sunday~ 

He has a great support in Judy, so they both better double-down on their vitamins -

and here we GROW again!

love you Dad, Grandpa and Great-Gandpa!

~ Summer is finally here~

First day of air-conditioning
yep, it went on last Sunday. 

Even though the northern part of the state is still under some water, it's time to get out the sun-guard and sunglasses!

Walking during the evening and early morning is now a pleasure, no more ice and snowy sidewalks or cold wind sweeping down from the Rockies!!

~heard her voice on June 2nd

Four years ago, Grandma slipped down to the hospital and quietly tiptoed into the waiting room right next door to the room where something exciting was happening!

All of a sudden the sound of a little baby's voice came down the hallway and thrilled Grandma! (smile)  pretty soon.....the new daddy peaked in at me and smiled...."she's here".

Your daddy looked very very happy,
your mommy looked tired but beautiful and
when I held Pretty PEARL, she looked and felt precious!

Happy 4th Birthday Pearl!!
