Cause ya gotta have a best friend!

My Mom took Charlie to Build A Bear a while ago and they made this adorable dog we named Carl. He is so cute and Charlie just loves him. The other night for about 30 min. Charlie passed Carl to me, Jack, and then himself, over and over so we could take turns giving him loves. It was so cute that I just had to take pictures. Thanks Mom for Carl:)

What we have been up to...

We have been busy around our house so here is an update on what we have doing to keep busy...
Picking delicious apples from our tree

Finding new places to play. (It took a solid three min. of his whining at the sink for me to figure out that he wanted to sit in it and play with the Q-Tips...of course that's what he wanted:))

Re-staining all the cabinets in the can't really tell in the pictures but they are much darker now and look great! I still have to tackle the kitchen. This fist one is the after.


Pretending to be crafty and making onsies for friends having babies.

And finally Charlie has been trying to start a new, and diaper. You may accessorise with a binki and toothbrush if you like:)

Hope all is well with all of you!

My Sweet Grandpa Lucy....

My Grandpa Lucy passed away this past Monday and I wanted to post a picture and his obituary in remembrance of him. His funeral was this weekend and it was just perfect. I was honored to speak and I just want to say what an incredible man he was and I love and miss him so very much!

Glen "Zeke" Zimmerman 1922 ~ 2009 It's a grave sense of loss that we announce the passing of Glen "Zeke" Robinson Zimmerman. Glen was born on February 23, 1922 in Lehi, Utah to Adella and Steven Zimmerman. Glen grew up in Eureka and Lehi and graduated from Lehi High School. His athletic years started there. He played football, tennis, and was a cheerleader during basketball season. For a short while, he worked in the Merkur Mines then moved on to school where he attended a short time at both BYU and Cedar City. Zeke then transferred to Utah State where he also played football. When the war broke out in 1942, he joined the US Marines and served for four years as a 2nd Lieutenant and then Captain. Part of his time was served in Hawaii in the Military Police. After the war, he returned to Utah State to finish his teaching degree and play football, graduating in 1947. Zeke is a true "blue" Aggie. He supported the school's Alumni Scholarship Program and athletics. His education continued to earn a Master's Degree and then his Doctorate. Also in 1947, he married Lucille Smith from Ogden. She was the sister to one of the fraternity brothers. They moved to Mt. Pleasant for his first year of teaching and to coach football at the high school. The next year they moved to Orem to teach and coach at the beloved Lincoln High School. Here is where he would start a career to help mold and change the lives for good for so many kids. When Orem Jr. High was built, he took the position of vice-principal. Mr. Zimmerman was a firm but fair man. He demanded respect, and for that he gave a lot. He developed and ran a successful program for boys that seemed to find trouble. Glen always had several things going on at once, during the summers he worked for the forest service and for years arbitrated and refereed basketball games for the Northwest Division. Glen was elected to the Orem City council where he served terms for 12 years. He was the advocate to have the recreation center built, now honored for. He helped get many projects done, one of them included getting cars for the police force. Zeke and Lucy enjoyed traveling to places like Italy, Greece, the Panama Canal, the Mediterranean, and the Caribbean. He was a fisherman and enjoyed golfing with his buddies, whom all but one, have also passed on. He enjoyed watching his sons play sports and was a regular at the Orem Owls games. With the many positions he held the ones of Husband, Father, and Grandfather were his most important. He loved and adored his wife, four children, and grandchildren. Glen is survived by his wife, Lucille Zimmerman, Craig (Zeke) and DeLoa Zimmerman, Blake (Zeke) and Connie Zimmerman, Jill Zimmerman and Nancy and Craig Pierce. Glen and Lucille have 12 grandchildren Candi, Marty, Carrie, Ty, Joshua, Brooke, Jamie, Bradley, Natalie, Michelle, Nichole, and Bret, as well as 14 great grandchildren and sister Donna Clark. He was preceded in passing by his parents, and brother Rex Zimmerman. Heart felt thank you to the loving staff of the Orem Beehive Home and Gentle Care for the love and care they gave Dad this past five months. The family would also like to thank Dr. Marshall Willis and William Alward. In lieu of flowers donations may be made to the School of Graduate Studies, Scholarship Development Office, in Logan, Utah.
