Sixteen years ago, you had a birthday and then a three days later you became my eternal companion. We miss you more than most people realize. You were the yin to my yang. I miss you so much that it hurts sometimes. When I look at our children and I watch them doing things that only could have come from you, the pain lessens just enough to keep going. Happy Birthday, Love. I miss you.

Today is Logan 15 birthday. It was fifteen years ago that Alleen gave birth to our #1 son. She would be so proud of him. A high school Freshman, soon to be an Eagle Scout, and faithfully honoring his Priesthood. I know that she is looking down at him with a big smile and lots of tears for missing this part of his life. Happy birthday Logan!!!

It's been 2 years since Alleen passed away. 2 years since we last talked and shared insights about the economy, politics and just life in general. We made a quick trip to put flowers on her grave today. We got some silk Dutch Irises, and a silk sunflower. She really liked Dutch irises and sunflowers. We also put a sprig of white lilies in with the flowers. The lilies were for Duncan our son who is buried with Alleen. They were able to disinter his casket and put in with her, so his casket is between her feet. It was almost 12 years ago when he was born too soon and passed away. So when I had the chance to bury him along with her, I took it, and now they are together both in body and in spirit. We miss you!!

Logan is in Washington D.C. area for the week. He is on a school trip. They'll get to see the White House, Smithsonian, the National Cathedral, The Liberty Bell, The Tomb of the Unknown Soldier (they were actually going to lay a wreath, but because of a change of plans they only get to see it), Vietnam Memorial, plus countless other places that I can't remember. Adam was in the 4th grade play, he was an Indian dancer. I took a video of it with my camera, but it wasn't the best video so all I have are some stills. Adam's county float was on Davis County. Which means that Logan did most of it while Adam kibits a lot. Over all it turned out ok. Adam had the final say on how it turned out since his name was on the project and it was his grade. Logan took 1 in the school science fair, first in the disrtice fair and went on to regionals. He enjoyed his time but he didn't win anything. Logan has twice been nominated of the Mayor Teen Award. he recieved a certificate and some goodies from the city. The picture is of his latest certificate and the mayor. Alleen would have been proud of her boys. I know that I am.
