I created this blog when my sweet little girl, Kristen, was diagnosed with cancer, for the third time. After fighting for almost 3 years Kristen was called home to that same God who gave her life. One of my favorite quotes comes from Neal A. Maxwell- "Those who "plow in hope" not only understand the law of the harvest but they also understand what growing seasons are all about. True, those with genuine hope may see their proximate circumstances shaken like a kaleidoscope at times, yet with the "Eye of faith" they still see divine design." Kristen blessed lives and continues to do so. Her light continues to shine. As for me, I continue to "plow in hope" knowing well that Kristen is mine for eternity. Families can be together forever!

wedding fun

The girls and I catered a wedding for 350 people this weekend.
It is always a lot of fun to hang out and work together.
We like to stick to simple delicious food.
We served watermelon and grapes, spinach salad, 
ham and turkey croissants and of course cookies.
Richard even helped, he was in charge of the lemonade and ice water.
We couldn't have done it without him.
It was a fun summer evening that will be remembered 
for a very long time.

One of the highlights was Grandma D's red car.
All of the kids wanted their picture taken by it.

What matters most is what lasts the longest
and our families are for eternity.

Much love to you Polly. I have missed my friends her in blogland so very much.
