When it rains...

it pours! Last Wednesday, my sweet Grandma passed away and we had a beautiful funeral celebrating her life on Saturday. She was an amazing mother, grandma, friend and more! She will be missed!


And then on Monday, we got word that my dear "Gramps" passed away. (photo taken of my mom & her dad in 2008)
He had been in a home care place for the past 18 months due to his poor health after back surgery a few years ago. It was hard seeing him in pain and I think we all feel at peace that he has gone onto a better place! We will miss him so much!

It's hard to loose your two remaining grand-parents within one week of eachother. My Dad's mom - and my Mom's dad. So we have another funeral on our calendar for this week - although it will be one of celebration as well. Although there are always tears and lots of emotional moments, it is also a great opportunity to share in memories of those that passed.

For those that will be watching the LDS General Conference this beautiful spring weekend, my father, Elder Ronald A. Rasband, will be speaking in the Priesthood Session on Saturday night. So tell your hubbies or son's to listen up - it's an amazing talk! The rest of us can watch for it online or in the Ensign shortly after conference.

If your looking for some fun church activities for your kids to do while watching Conference, here are a few fun links. There are plently more online - just do some google searches.

I'll be back next week with lots of creative projects to share. Sorry about the crazy two weeks around here. Hugs!

Robyn, I'm sorry to hear about your grandparents. I hope that peace will be with your family.

I was just reading your dad's latest CES talk. He's a lovely man.

So sorry to hear that Robyn. We wish you the best during this hard time. I wanted to tell you how great it was to see you guys a few weeks ago. You'll have to drop by again for longer next time you're in town.
