For some reason growing up, when ever we learned something new, we would say that our brain got a new wrinkle. SOmething to do with the fact that new knowledged created a connection/wrinkle in the brain. Regardless, I learned something new today. Violet kept asking me specifically what A.M. and P.M. stand for. I knew a general answer, but that didn't satisfy her. In case you too are curious "AM" stands for the Ante Meridiem —which means “before noon”—and “PM” stands for Post Meridiem : “after noon. That is the Latin lesson for the day.

I have always loved hearing stories about family members who have come before me. Maybe this stems from my religion, and the fact that I am named after my Great Grand mother, Melissa Ann Shaw. This summer (about a week before Vaughn's birth) we were able to attend a very large family reunion in South Jordan. It was amazing to see so many people that I am related to, and who all are here as a result of one man. It was the Isaac Wardle Reunion.

I am so excited to begin a new year!! I know that 2011 will be the best one yet!! We had an extraordinary, fun time last night at the Torsak's for New Years!! Best tradition ever!! Just Dance 2 is so much fun, in case you were wondering! Here is a fun picture of Violet, Handen and Darin playing Jenga at 1:30am (yes, all of my kids were still up, except Vaughn). I'm so thankful for these wonderful friends who are so important in my life. We have been through so much. I probably wouldn't have survived my grieving Elaine's death with out them being by my side. Love you guys! Thank you for loving me, faults and all!
