Okay, so we don't really have a friend in the ward that does wax sculptures. That picture below is really of Tyler. It just turned out so he looked rather fake. For those that fell for it (cough, Angela, cough), ha ha ha. I mean - sorry for the joke.

Oh, and to Anonymous (James), you're brain has a shell on it.

Wax replica of Tyler; Jon and the kids

This guy in our ward does wax sculptures and offered to do one of Tyler. He made him look very happy. We put the sculpture in the high chair and took this picture. Pretty realistic, huh?

Jamie took this picture of me, Steven, Kylie, and Kaylin during "halftime" of our football game in the back yard.

Til we meet again

This week was tough for Jamie and I. Our friend Brittney Drakulich passed away on Wednesday after a long struggle with cancer. As her husband, Steven said, however, cancer didn't beat her; she beat cancer. She was an inspiration to many lives and her gentle spirit touched all those around her until her last earthly moments. She will be greatly missed.

I can't comprehend what Steven is going through. The strength he has shown throughout this trial is amazing. Fortunately, our loving Father in Heaven has made it possible for families to be eternal. We know that Britt is not gone forever, but is waiting for Steven and their children while in the Savior's presence.

Happy 32nd!

Yes, this is a little self-serving, but I did have a birthday this past week. I guess one positive about 32 is that it's one of the best pro athlete numbers. Magic Johnson, Shaq, Sandy Koufax, Jim Brown, Marcus Allen - just to name a few.
It was a great birthday and Jamie did an excellent cake, implementing some techniques she learned from Cake Boss (great show, by the way). It tasted as good as it looks and no trademarks were infringed upon. Sorry it's sideways. I was too lazy to rotate it. If you want to see it vertical, you can click on it, save it and rotate it all by yourself. Ha!
