Meeting Oliver

Last Weekend (January 17 to 19) Ann, Neal, and I traveled to Salt Lake to meet our newest grandson Oliver Comfort Smith and to visit with Alma, Matti, Bella, Jeanette, and Jeff. We had a great time.
Oliver even noisily filled his diaper while Neal was holding him. Thank goodness it all stayed in his diaper.
Ann, Neal, Jeanette, Jeff and I went to the Tabernacle Choir Broadcast on Sunday Morning. It always a treat to attend the broadcast in person. Ann, Neal and I attend church with Alma and Matti then we all had dinner at Alma and Matti house.
Thank you so much for your hospitality.

Neal is so good with kids, He and Bella had a great time playing with cars:

Published poet. well kind of

Well a while back ago my english teacher, Mrs. McHenry told us that there was a poetry contest coming up and we had to write two poems for it in order to get credit in her class. So being the not so good poet I am, I asked Melissa to help me out with it. Well about a week and a half ago Mrs. Mchenry announced the winners. There were alot of them, and I was one of them. Well I guess I should say Melissa's poem is published with my name on it. Thanks SOOOOOOOOO much Melissa!!!!! I owe you big time for this one!! So I decided to put it on the blog so everone could read it. Once again thank you so much for helping me!!

Thoughts of Thanksgiving

When I think of Thanksgiving
I think of many different things.
I think of football, cool nights,
And colors that fall brings.
I imagine the Pilgrims and Indians
That gathered together for peace
It must have been a beautiful moment
An instant when troubles did cease.
Did they feel as blessed as I do,
When my family gathers near?
I’m filled with peace and gladness
To celebrate with those who are dear.
For my family means the most to me
I think of them often each day.
And enjoy this time
To spend to visit, laugh, and play.
Of all the memories I have
Thanksgiving is some of the best.
All the memories to be made,Thanksgiving may out shadow the rest.

Thanks Melissa!!!

Jeff and Jeanette's Table

It's not quite done yet but I figured I would give an update. I sometimes stay after school for a couple hours to get some really good work time on it. Today (Tuesday) was one of those days!! I was able to get the leafs for it all done I just have to align everything now and Sand and sand some more then sand SOME MORE!! HA HA. Well in other words I have probably about a week or so worth of sanding to do!!! But I am hoping (fingers crossed) that it will be maybe another week or two till I can get it done. Depends on how much I am able to stay after some more. So here are some pictures of it!!! The first one is with all the leafs in!! Total length with leafs in 8 feet!
