With his new front teeth in Harman started getting lessons on the importance of IMPECCABLE dental hygiene… hmmm I wonder how long the fascination w/ the toothbrush will last?

Fond Rememberance

Posted in General at 10:22 pm by jess

These remarks were from Glenn Beck. For those of you who don’t know who Glenn is you’re missing out. A convert to the church he hosts the GLENN BECK SHOW on CNN Headline news and has a talk news radio show. I heard him on his show this evening and it was as if he was bearing his testimony to America, something I wish I could do since hearing of the passing of our beloved Prophet. He will truly be missed.

Tribute to late LDS President Hinckley

January 28, 2008 – 17:36 ET

Personal note, this is — gosh, I hope this year gets easier for me personally. This has been quite honestly one of the most difficult years, and I know we’re not even out of January yet, but this has been one of the most difficult months I have had in my life since, oh, gosh, it has to be back in my days of alcoholism or divorce. It’s been a very rough few months and you know what — or few weeks. You know part of that and I’m not going to go into it again because I can’t take it anymore but there’s another side of that that we’re just having — our family is working very hard together on some things that are happening and I ask for your prayers on. But last night it was about 1:30, none of us in our house had found a bed before 2:00 in the last few days and last night it was about 1:30, we all went upstairs finally, said good night to each other. My wife and I were in our closet and we were changing into our pajamas and we were chatting and there was a soft knock at the door and it was my eldest daughter Mary and she said, “Dad, I just checked my e-mail and President Hinckley has passed away.” If you don’t know who President Hinckley is, you are not in the minority. Most people have never heard of this man. You may have seen him on Larry King Live one time. He was on a couple of times. He is the president of the LDS church and he is a 97-year-old man, one of the sweetest men I have ever seen. I never met, I never met him. Larry King actually talked to me and said one of the most amazing men he’s ever met, Gordon B. Hinckley and I said, I imagine. And he said, you haven’t met him? And I said, no, sir. And he said, you want to? I said, no, no, that’s okay. He said, no, I’ll line it up; I’ll call Gordon up; you two should meet. I said, no, no, that’s okay, I don’t need to meet him. It’s not like I was a fan of him. I was in awe of him. And that’s what Larry King said to me. He said, all you Mormons are alike. You are all in awe of that man. And I said, he is an amazingly sweet and powerful man. A few, I think it was three years or so ago his wife that he had been married to absolutely forever passed away and it was so sad when she passed away because he was lost without her. They were connected and they were one and they were a way a marriage should be and it was amazing to watch the two together. And last night I had wondered for a while, I had really, truly wondered for a while what it was going to be like when this guy passes away because honestly he was like, he’s just one of the sweetest guys I had ever seen.

Well, last night I found out. Honestly I had thought in my head, because he had been sick for a while, I’m going to be devastated the day he dies. My daughter knocked on the door last night. She said, Dad, President Hinckley just died. My first thought, my very first thought in my image of my mind was him and his sweet wife arm in arm, together again at last. It was a happy moment. It shocked me. I knew he was back with his wife.

We all knelt down around our bed and I have never in my life felt, I have never in my life felt what I felt last night in prayer. I just wanted to thank God for putting yet another amazing individual down on Earth. We’re surrounded by amazing people. We watch people all the time. We are influenced by different people, just people who stand for something, just people who say, you know what, I’m going to be a decent human being. And you watch them and they affect your life. Gordon B. Hinckley affected my life. I watched him. I learned from him. He said one time, and I hear it all the time in my head: If what you’re doing doesn’t have eternal consequences, why are you doing it. I think of that all the time. I think of the way he just told the truth even when it was tough. For people who are of my faith today, today I guess people would think would be a sad day. For me it’s a very, very happy day, a very happy day.

If you are not of my faith, I ask you just to reflect on one thing today. Who is that one person in your life that stands for something. Who is that one person in your life that you look at and just say, wow, I want to be a little more like that person. Ponder them before you lose them. Maybe call them and thank them for the influence that they’ve had on your life. And if you don’t have somebody like that in your life, look for somebody today. They seem to become more and more rare. They seem to pass on far too quickly even if they are 97 years old.

Sunday in Utah

Posted in General at 8:04 pm by jess

After sacrament meeting we blessed my Aunt Teresa’s sweet little baby girl Francesa Barbara Pesci. This is my Aunt Teres, she practically RAISED me which is why of course I turned out so well!

Then off to Jordan Valley Hospital to see Harm’s new BESTEST FRIEND EVER who was born yesterday COLE HYER weighing in at a beefy 7 lbs 8 ounces 20.5 inches. LOOK at all that hair. Now I realize you are only suppose to say your kids are the cutest but this is the MOST BEAUTIFUL baby boy I’ve ever seen! He is perfect and his eyes are gorgeous!

A beaming Grandma Tami helps Cole uncross his eyes and “Aunt” Nat strikes a pose!

I can’t get over how perfect and precious he is! Perhaps it has something to do with the fact that I had NOTHING to do with getting him here! WAY TO GO NIK!

How low can it go?

Posted in General at 5:57 pm by jess

So this morning Ben and I came to the startling realization that Harm was pushing the limits of his crib height AGAIN! He’s a little ball of energy (we some times like to call it DESTRUCTION) and we saw first hand when he jumped he was getting VERY close to bailing out head first. You can see here how tall he’s getting and how silly he is getting, he’ll do anything for a laugh, sound like anybody else you know???

img_0918.jpg img_0909.jpg img_0917.jpg img_0914.jpg

So on that note Ben and Harm did some father son bonding and lowered his crib.

img_0925.jpg img_0937.jpg img_0927.jpg img_0928.jpg

And that had better work for a while because that is as low as it goes! No more growing! I say, and I’m the MOM!!
