Randon's U of A Graduation

First off... let me brag about the accomplishment of my first born.
After years of schooling, and huge projects and endless hours of homework...
Randon graduated with his Bachelors of Science in Mechanical Engineering. We went down to Tucson on December 18th, for his graduation with the other Mechanical and Aerospace Engineers. Then, the next morning he walked with the rest of those graduation from the U of A.
Some of the things he has tried to explain (things way over my head, but he explains them in easier terms to help me grasp it slightly) is just totally amazing. It is amazing how the brain can just expand and comprehend STUFF!
U of A Graduates!

This is Randon in his graduation robes. These are his friends that practically lived at his house studying and doing homework.
This is his WONDERFUL wife who supported, helped and fed the crew during the years of school. They have both sacrificed so much.
Congratulations, Randon and Callie!


There are so many things that I want to blog about but never seem to have the time, energy and creative juices to just
But to recap what I WANT to blog about, it would be:

*2 year Weight Loss Surgiversary
*Randon's U of A Graduation

I know there are plenty of other things too...
but those are at the forefront of my mind.
I WILL get to them all.... some day.

Entertained and Entertaining!

Do you want to know what a teenager does to entertain himself when he is left home alone and is bored? Take a look...

Now, follow the process ...
Now, for the finale... Tylon says...
"This is what I would look like if I were black."
Silly Boy... he sure keeps us entertained and laughing!

Nope, not Christmas bells.... we are hearing wedding bells. Jadon and Amanda (Bond) are engaged. They met at the YSA FHE in our Stake. Jadon is TOTALLY "twitterpated". We love Amanda and are really excited to have her in the family. Their wedding date is set for Spring of 2010 in the Mt. Timpanogos Temple. We will keep you updated on details.

Pink Footy Pajamas!

Ok, I have to admit... I have always wanted a pair of those cute footy pajamas that babies wear... all covered and snuggly. So, we (Krissa , Callie, and myself)found some at Target and could NOT resist in trying them on. We laughed and laughed.. it was so funny.

Come to find out they are really toasty inside!

Seven Brides for Seven Brothers

We had a blast!!!
Saturday night, we (my Mom -Audrey Burklund), Krissa and Callie (daughter in law) all went with my friend Sheryl and her daughters & Friend to the Hale Theatre to see one of my FAVORITE musicals... SEVEN BRIDES FOR SEVEN BROTHERS. It was AWESOME!!
The poor lady that played Millie (lead lady) broke her foot on the opening night and has continued playing in the performance nightly since then. She did an excellent job and you couldn't even tell she had a broken foot!

(Krissa, Millie (leading lady), Callie, Adam (leading man), Me!
First we start the night off by meeting at Mi Amigos for dinner, then we head to the play that started at 7:30pm.
After the play, my mom, Krissa, Callie and myself went for dessert at Applebees... the Maple Butter Blonde was salivating on our tongue. Bummer to find out when we got there that the sauce did not come in on the shipment... but... they gave it to us with carmel and hot fudge toppings and for FREE!!! (Thanks to Applebees manager, Scott Michaels) We also split a Chocolate Chip Cookie Sundae. By the end of the night... we were on sugar overload! We had a GREAT time together with GREAT memories!
Me and my Mama!! Merry Christmas, Ma-ma!!
