Happy Birthday, Aunt Arlene!

Wasn't it nice of us to send her birthday present so far ahead of time?! (It's easy to remember her birthday because it's the day after Grandpere's.) One of my favorite memories of Aunt Arlene is watching her churn butter and read a book at the same time in Grandma and Grandpa's recliner. She is the master of dovetailing if it involves a book! Do you have a favorite memory? We love you, Arlene!

So many to choose from . . . one of the best was when Melissa and I snuck to Sonora from Utah to surprise Grandpa, Grandma, and the Craigs, and we were hiding up in Arlene's bedroom so we could jump out and surprise her. Arlene was downstairs, and decided to call Melissa, who had left her cell phone on the desk in the kitchen, which of course began ringing and gave us away! If it wasn't my bedtime, I would dig out the picture we snapped of Aunt Arlene running through her bedroom door to find us. It's one of my favorites!

Ha ha, that was great! Even better than the memory of hour-long bathroom breaks through the desert on said trip.

Melissa, you've got a secure place in heaven based on that return trip alone.
