The Best 4th of July Ever!!

Elder B Trout came home on July 4, 2012.  His plane landed at the Idaho Falls, Idaho, Airport at 2:41 pm. Many of our family and friends were there to welcome B Trout home.  Plus, there were four other missionaries that came home on that same flight.  Needless to say, the place was packed with excited people, signs, banners, balloons, and lots of happy cheers.
Here are some pictures that visually show what a joyful and memorable day it was. 
A BIG thank you goes out to Adie (B Trout’s Aunt),
who captured these precious moments for us.   
I am just a tad excited for 2:41 pm.
The short 12 minute drive to the airport was killing me!

Thanks, Elder B Trout, for being an example of what a great missionary looks and acts like.

Double Joy on Mother’s Day

This past Mother’s Day was a unique day for me.
I received TWO Skype calls from TWO of my missionary sons.
Oh yeah! Double the Joy!
It was B Trout’s last Mother’s Day call from Plymouth, Minnesota, and T-Bob’s first Mother’s Day call from Nizhny, Russia. How my heart did little butterfly dances when I saw their darling adorable, missionary faces and then heard those words, “Hey Mom!”  Both of them are so stinkin’ happy in the work and loving their missions. They literally glowed through the computer monitor.  I almost think they don’t miss us 😦  But I need to remind myself and be grateful that they are working hard and being faithful as full time servants of the Lord.
Sigh…   I just love (and terribly miss) those boys.
“I have no greater joy than to hear that my children walk in truth.”
