Father's Day

I'm so glad when Daddy comes home,
Glad as I can be!

Clap my hands...

...and shout for joy,

Then climb up on his knee.
(Father's Day last year)

Put my arms around his neck,
Hug him tight like this,

Pat his cheeks...

...and give him what? A great, big kiss!
(This was post-kiss. Dad's face is too prickly and tickly!)

Oh, Jen! That is so cute! If Seth was my baby, I don't think I would be able to stop kissing those cheeks!

Hi Ortons!

I found your blog off of Tara & Steve Cook's blog...blogging is a wonderful thing!

I hope you remember me, Marie Cummings, from Bellevue 2nd Ward. Jennifer, we played flute together a couple of times while you were in the ward, and that is why I was really glad to find your blog.

I bought the Favorite Hymns for Flute Book 2 that you had bought, and now have lost the accompaniment book. I was hoping you had it and we could talk about possibly getting a copy from you.

Please e-mail me at marie(at) or see our blog at

Glad to see you are all doing well. Seth is a BEAUTIFUL little boy!

Yeah, sorry it was Geoff & Heather's blog...I keep track of too many former B2-ers, they get confused.

Thanks for looking for the music--send me your e-mail so we can correspond without having to leave comments on each other's blogs.
