Ending and Beginning

Saturday, August 7, 1982
"Our baby finally made it! He was born on Thursday August 5th at 12:34 p.m. He weighed 7 pounds 11 ounces and was 19 3/4 inches long. We named him Austin Marshall Cruze. He is a beautiful baby so plump and pink!"

Our baby finally made it! Austin and Katina were married in the Temple today! It was a very tender moment to see their love for each other shinning in their eyes. They were pronounced husband and wife and a new family was born.

This is it, the last one,
There are no more left.
Austin is the caboose, kaput!
May you, "Live long and prosper." (Spock)

Waking up to morning breath, stinky!
Seeing true love as it really is...oh, the possibilities!
Cooking 101
Crankiness, testiness, irritability, good days, bad days etc.
Laughing, teasing, private jokes,
Happiness, tenderness, kindness, compassion...
Growing and learning to be a family.

But don't worry, "All you need is love!" (The Beatles)

It was a beautiful day!

The Rule

I made a rule for myself: If I find money in the washer it is mine to keep. When I do find money, I smile with excitement and gleefully think, ah ha, 5 bucks! I don't tell anyone when I find the money, and since nobody knows about my rule nobody has ever asked, "Mom/Kay, did you find $5 in the washer?" If they did ask I would have to say, "Finders keepers, losers weepers."

I kept the nickel, but the pocket knife...I just put it in the basket on Shane's dresser, and a new rule was born.

Finders weepers, losers keepers.
