I have been away for weeks, but it was all worth it! We spent a very exciting two weeks plus in the Mojave Desert watching Andy be brilliant, and rubbing shoulders with big stars in the making. Oh, and we made a bunch of food while we were there. It was hot as the dickens, and dirty as ..... uhh .. dirt, but we had an absolute blast. I can't wait until the finished product is ready for view. EVERYONE will have to make the trip for the big premier because this may be your last time for you to be "the little people" as Andy makes his way to the big time. We are so proud of him, and so happy for his success to come.

In the middle of our big adventure on the desert, we made a whirlwind trip to Utah to see our number one grandson, Wm Brigg Butler, receive his hard earned Eagle Scout Award. We have no buttons left on our shirts after popping them off over Brigg and Andy. We have been on excitement and pride overload!! Congratulations to both our boys on their major accomplishments!

There is one more MAJOR happening during this exciting two week period. Our number 5 child (Amanda Luce) gave birth to our number 23 grandchild, Charity Gene. We are grateful for her safe delivery and for Amanda's good health. We can't wait to hold the little darling ourselves. Congratulations to the Bishop family of Lehi. Hope to see you soon.

I have been waiting to publish this post so I could add pictures of all these events, but alas, I can't seem to make the pictures appear, you will just have to use your imagination to see how great it all was. Maybe sometime in the future I will be able to figure it all out. In the mean time, close your eyes, and imagine ......
