Like Father Like Daughter

And people wonder where I get it from. Duh!

World Famous Shucker!

Amber and I met Russell yesterday at our pre-parade dinner in Mobile, Alabama. He was fantastic!! My favorite quote from the day was when Amber said to the guys behind the counter, "Don't oysters make you sleepy?!" They just laughed knowingly and replied, "They make you want to go to bed but not because you're sleepy!"

More Mardi Gras soon!

President's Day Holiday

Last weekend we celebrated two calendar holidays; Valentine's Day and President's Day. Although I was happily solitaire for the former I had an enjoyable, baby-filled day for the latter.
Last month my gorgeous friend Clara, from Mobile, welcomed the new addition to the Fisher family; Anderson Michael. Although Mobile is only an hours drive from Biloxi, I had not met Mr. Anderson. So, when Clara called saying she was on her way to Biloxi, with baby, I was excited.
Since Amanda and I had scheduled lunch, Clara and Anderson joined us for Japanese at Sakura. I have been wanting a picture with the Sumo cut-out for some time and chose to seize the moment on our way out. I tried to persuade Amanda and Clara to pose for a photo but only Anderson was interested in facing the camera. I love this photo! Babies are so fun!

After lunch Clara and I took Anderson for his first stroll on the beach. He's such a good baby and handsome too! I look forward to more outings with Anderson and his Mommy.
After Clara and Anderson left, I joined the Flake family for family night. We had a terrific lesson on friendship, followed by Valentine Bingo and brownies a la mode.
I returned home around 8pm exhausted. The emotional and physical reservoir mothers exhibit never ceases to amaze me. Kudos to mothers and hooray for baby-filled holidays.

Dear Andrea

Jason notified me last week of your passing. The obituary in the Richmond Register listed the following information:
Andrea Wong, age 30, (Andrea and I were born nine days apart) went to be with the Lord January 30th (exactly one year, to the day, that my Mother passed) following a brief respiratory illness.
Andrea received a B.S. in Psychology from EKU (my Mother also attended EKU) in 2000 where she graduated Magna Cum Laude, she also held an office in the Delta Zeta Sorority. (Prior to attending EKU, Andrea attended Foley Middle and Madison Southern High School where she was a cheerleader, member of the drama club and Homecoming Queen). She was a musical vocalist, photographer and avid golfer. (Andrea and I, in addition to cheering together, played on the same golf team). Andrea has touched the lives of many (including my own) with her warm personality and she will be greatly missed.
Funeral services will be Friday, February 6th, 2009 at 1:00 p.m. at Lakes Funeral Home (Berea, KY). Burial will be in the Berea Cemetery (my Mother is also interred here). Visitation will be Thursday, February 5th from 6pm-9pm at Lakes Funeral Home.
I am so sorry I will not be able to attend. I sent flowers but somehow its not enough. So many of our classmates are planning to attend your services. You were loved by so many. I hope you knew that. We have lost so many people from our class. I can't believe we are saying goodbye to you.
I am sorry I never thanked you for signing my Mother's online guestbook last year. It meant so much to me that you took the time to recognize my loss. If you see my Mother, give her a big hug for me. She will be happy to see you, I'm sure. I can't wait to see you again.

I attended the temple for the first time in almost two years, with the exception of Desiree's sealing (December 2007). Arriving early, I was able to sit for some time quietly. One of the greatest blessings of the temple is the feeling of peace it brings. I have felt peace and comfort since my Mother died but I can not remember one instance within the past year that remotely compares with the experience I enjoyed yesterday.
Although I miss attending the DC temple, I am excited about living in a new temple district. I have already become acquainted with the Baton Rouge Temple President, Max Brough, and his wife. Max is also the brother of Elder Monte J. Brough who attended our ward in Lilburn, Georgia.
Although New Orleans is closer, Baton Rouge is pedestrian friendly with impressive commercial and residential architecture. I look forward to exploring the former location of the Red Stick Indians; Baton Rouge, Louisiana.
