Super and the Greats

Nope, it's not the name of Steve's new band.
Not even the name of a new blog.

Nope, it's SUPER grandpa
and his great-grandkids.
Yesterday was his 92nd birthday.
So we had a party and presents.
And Mexican food.
They are fascinated by him.
They can't believe that someone can be 92.years.OLD!
Bless him for his patience while they mauled him!

Happy Birthday Grandpa!

And other important news..
Just got an email from a local member where Elder D. is.
He's getting transferred to Chugach, Alaska.
Today.
Huh?
We googled it.
Apparently it is a 22,000 mile Indian reservation.
Which includes the towns of Seward & Valdez.
Unless I'm mistaken.
But it looks pretty wild to me.
It's right up his alley.
More news when I hear from the Elder himself!

I'm fascinated by Grandpa! 92 years old! Amazing!

Love it when my Elders and Sisters get transferred and we do a Google Earth to see where they are! Such experiences for all of us! Can't wait to hear what he thinks about his new area!

Whoo Hoo! Happy, Happy Birthday to Super Grandpa!!
It will be wonderful to hear from your son, all about the new place.
Our son is on his very last transfer...and then he'll be coming home :)
Our youngest son is counting down the days to the M.T.C.---8 and counting. Exciting stuff !

We sure love Grandpa, too! We were gone for his birthday, so we took him out on Saturday. Thank you so much for making the day special for him!
