Words to Live by Alec - MAJOR PAYDAY

I just have to share!!!

May 23, 2010
Dear Br. & Sis. Matthews,
Today your son is transferring away from Powell. I didn't want to miss the opportunity to report to you what an excellent missionary he has been in this area.
From the first time we met him he has been helpful, courteous and pleasant, diligent and faithful. He reaches out to my sons who are of mission age but resisting that a loving and non-judgemental way. This means a lot to me.
You can be very proud/grateful and confident your son is serving the Lord in a true and faithful manner-such a blessing to him and to you as a family, I am sure.
Thank you for your efforts in raising such a sensitive young man.
Joan (& Steve) Christiansen

It so nice when others figure out what you already know! He is nothing short of amazing!!!

Miracles still happen!!!!

Family Flowers

When I went to buy flowers this year, I got what reminded me of my family. Gerber Daisys remind me of Melanie's wedding.

Dalias remind me of Haley's wedding

Paul's favorite are Begonias
There is nothing flowery about Alec, but Jack has quite an aroma!!!

I was going to get some that represented me, but the line was too long, so Paul bought them. What kind of flower you ask? Impatients! (I was going to take a picture, but I had other things to do)

Haley, these are for you!!!

P. S. Special thanks to my lovely helper, Melanie!!!

Springtime in Provo

I know it's been a cold spring, but look what it's done for our flowers! They are so beautiful. This is our Peace Rose.

Our red roses have never done too well, but look at them now!

Notice the far away ones, as well.

I can't believe how perfect they look!

They are beautiful up close or from a distance!

The climber is filling in so well!!

The side garden is so lush and green!
Our bench is buried under Melanie and Elliots furniture. When we uncover it, we'll put it out.

It is so beautiful with the shades of green highlighted with purple.

We have had a BUMPER crop of Columbine. They have never been taller!

My Sweet William adds so much color. I REALLY love Sweet William

Yeah, even the weeds are hardy!!! I almost hate to pull them!!

Well Haley, this is what you are missing here!! We love you and miss you and Graden LIKE CRAZY!!! We're looking forward to August!!!
