Thought of the Day: "Cinderella is proof that a new pair of shoes can change a girls life"

I assume Collette is working out all the details for Sisters Weekend (July 17-19). We will be watching for the itinerary and pertinent information (including cost of tickets) in the coming days. I am looking forward to spending some time together. I hope everyone is still planning on attending.

Love You All

Happy 40th Anniversary

Yesterday was a very important day for the Cowan family. So I decided to hop on here and congratulate my parents on celebrating forty wonderful years together. In speaking on behalf of our entire family, we are so eternally grateful for the decision you made to be married forty years ago. We have always felt your love for one another, and for each of us. You have sacrificed so much, in order to provide the best life possible for each of us. I thought I'd share this quote from President Hinckley:

"I believe in the family where there is a husband who regards his companion as his greatest asset and treats her accordingly; where there is a wife who looks upon her husband as her anchor and strength, her comfort and security; where there are children who look to mother and father with respect and gratitude. " President Gordon B. Hinckley

Thank you for setting such a wonderful example of how to make a marriage work.......and last forever. We love you!

*I often find myself wondering what I did to deserve this family. I guess this is my chance to let each of you reading this know, just how much I love you. Now sit back and enjoy these awesome pictures from 1969!

This picture was taken in December 2008. Four kids, two son-in-laws, two daughter-in-laws, and twelve grandkids's amazing how things can change in forty years!

Ultrasound Pictures

Here are the ultrasound pictures I promised. The top picture shows a set of identical babies, and the bottom picture is of two fraternal babies. It' all a little surreal, don't you think?

In Keeping With This Weeks Theme - - GRANDPARENTS

Channing and I will soon be members of that club.  Yes. . . Rachelle is going to have a baby.   I can't say I wasn't a bit surprised when we heard this news and a little worried that she will only be 17 when the baby comes. . . .. I have to admit. . . any baby news. . is happy news.  Channing says it is all my fault because I have been telling him how much I would love to be a Grandma, and now I am going to be.     I have been saying for the last 6 months how good Rachelle has been doing since she has had this steady boyfriend, Luis.  She has been doing so much better in school and he brings her to visit us about three times a week.  So we have become a lot closer with her and see her much more than we do Eric and Breanna.    So yes, I have to admit, this is something I am looking forward to even if it's not quite the right timing.
