What a blessing to have such a great husband and 2 precious little boys! Although some days I may feel very overwhelmed, when I see God's gifts, it makes me excited to welcome another in August! :) Part son, part walrus :)

March came in like a lamb and dragged a reluctant spring behind. Despite the north wind's calloused attempts to halt time in the bleakness of snow and ice, spring is pushing winter aside and painting it's beautiful colors all over. GREEN- the sign of life is appearing through the dead grass, Orange flies by on the wings of a robin, brown (did I ever think it was sooo pretty?:) mud covers most everything, a pleasant change from white snow. Soon the artist will be in full glory as flowers start to bloom and sunsets become a thing to enjoy after a long day outside. Ahhh, I am thankful for seasons! Especially warm ones! :)

I love you so much. This has been the best 3 years of my life! I am so blessed to have such a wonderful wife. I hope and pray that every year is even better than any we've had so far. I love you and miss you every day I'm at work. I can't wait to get home to see you. --SA

The Ansons were blessed to make a trip to Chicago the first weekend of February to visit our family for Christmas. Grandma seemed fine and usual. Grandma was not in the best of health, but no one expected her to pass away any time soon. So we enjoyed our visit there and headed back to Kansas. 10 days later we found out that Grandma died sometime during the night. Grandpa found her lying on the floor in the bedroom. It came as a great shock to us all. I (this is Scott) lived with my Grandparents for 5 years after I graduated high school. My Grandma helped me through quite a few hard times. My love for her was/is strong and I will miss her very much. I have a lot of memories to think back on. I am glad Lydia was able to know her and I'm glad Paul and Marcus got to spend some time with her. They may not be able to remember her when they grow up, but we've got pictures! We are so thankful to still have Grandpa for as long as the Lord allows us. Grandpa has had a huge impact on my life just like Grandma did. We love them a lot. We'll miss you Grandma. Pictured below (L-R) is Grandma, Grandpa and my Mom at my brother's wedding in October, 2007.
