some family came.
some of his friends came.
so it was fun to meet new people!
i really look up to my grandpa a lot.
i really admire the life he has lived, and the way he has lived it.
this last christmas he gave out the book he wrote about his life.
it is so fun to read!
my grandpa has a lot of great stories,
and i don't go a page without a smile and a giggle.
i love reading his book.
he has always been very determined and
passionate about everything that he does.
he has never been afraid to go after what he wants,
which is obvious when he asked my grandma to marry him
only 2 weeks after they met!
he has been a faithful member of the church his whole life,
served a mission as a young man,
and later served a few more missions with my grandma.
he is very kind, sweet, and loving.
although he is getting older,
i love remembering and watching home videos
and seeing how he interacted with
all his grandchildren when we were really little.
he is such a good man
and i couldn't ask for a better grandpa!
i'm so grateful
that he and my grandma
had my mom
and that they raised her to be a wonderful woman
who could raise me in a similar way.
Thank you Grandpa!
I love you so much!!!!
after grandpa's festivities
i went to emmie's house
where stephen had a surprise party.
me and em had our drinks
and when she offered to get me a straw,
naturally i thought she was offering it for the
chocolate fountain that was near by....
it was good for like 2 seconds.
then it just made us sick.
