Ellyse's New Beginnings!! 2016

What the heck?! How did little Leesee Lou get so big? I about popped of proudness, is that a word?, when she said that her hero was her mother. I was just so happy she forgot all those times that I thought I was screwing her up.

Grandma Jolene's Funeral

 Our Jolene passed away on February 13, 2016 due to a short battle with various cancers in various parts of her body.  We said goodbye to her on Feb 17th and 18th.  I sure loved her funeral because I learned so many new things about this lady that forsook her self interests in so many ways in order to help others in their lives.  She will be greatly missed.

 This cutie and I had some fun during the viewing.

Apparently, she does not like looking at herself in the camera.  I mean, who does?  Really?

 It had been spring like weather up till like 1 hour before the internment.

 My parents sent these flowers to Jason and me.  Very pretty and smelled wonderful.  The ward dinner was freaking fantastic and they had to go boxes too!  We felt very well taken care of there.

If this works...I'll try to link the obituary here.

Valentines Day 2016

Valentines was on a Sunday this year. I didn't think I'd like it. I really did though. Jason has his apron on so you know we ate something really good. Steaks, I think. I love my lovies!

I handed this holiday over to Jason.  He has 3 girls.  He took care of us exceedingly well.

Junior High and High School Art

I was going through some things at my parents house and came across my old junior high/high school artwork folders.  Some of my pieces were incredibly laughable.  However, I thought I'd take photos of the decent ones or ones that had special memories before throwing them out.  Here they are.  In all their glory.  ;)  Be kind with your judgement. 

 This states: Hey dudes!  I"m Sally.  Well, my friends like call me surfing Sally like because I like totally like surfing.  Ya know, I'm like totally always at the beach and I like totally love to TAN!

This one was a declaration of love to a Mr. MP.  He shall remain nameless.

Okay, so may be the MP won't remain nameless.  Poor guy.  Never liked me back.  His loss. ;)

Do you see the vases.....and the faces?

This was a painting.

Tilt your head.  It says Dance.

We were able to decorate our folders as we pleased.

I wonder what Freud would have to say about this one?

This was yet another declaration of love to another boy.  But I was sly this time.  His name was Levi. Never liked me either.  I'm seeing a trend.

 This was the outline that was used to create a kaleidoscope with metal on the outside.  It was one of my most favorite projects we did.  I don't have the kaleidoscope but I remember it turned out great with this outline in the metal on the outside.

Self portrait

 A couple of my other favorite projects were stained glass, molding plastic, and Pysanky Eggs.  We also were able to play with clay and make pots as well.  Those were some of the coolest classes I remember from junior high.

Speaking of junior high...

Oh boy...
