The Rexburg Temple Dedication of The Church of Jesus Christ was today. President Monson, the new president of the church, made quite a few jokes as well as gave some counsel. It was really foggy in the morning and during the dedication it started to clear up. Tim heard that used to happen with President Hinckley as well. Either way, he was grateful for the sun--it has been snowing every other day and the snow is piling up. Anna is doing well. However, she is not looking forward to having Tim be gone for the latter half of this week. By the end of each day during the week both Mommy and Abram are ready for Dad to take a turn. Dad will miss both of them as well as he competes in a construction competition and conference in Reno. His team is tackling a LEED (green building) problem. Tim also hopes to be able to land an internship at the job fair. Well, we won't make this first one very long, but I hope all who received an invitation to our blog will blog just a few words or two. We have taken Julie and Aaron's example to heart and giving this a go.
Tim is the son of Richard and Diane Denney. He was born in Whitefish, Montana and grew up in Kalispell, MT. To relax he will go on a run or act a little crazy (which usually drives Anna crazy). He feels most fufilled when studying the gospel of Jesus Christ, spending time with his family, or focusing on one task at work and kicking its butt.
Anna Lillian Denney is the daughter of Douglas and Lillian Nehring. She was born in Orem, UT and raised in Las Vegas, NV and later Billings, MT. She spends her days at home with Abram and enjoys being creative by cooking, scrapbooking, sewing, painting, etc. She is an avid fan of the Food Network.
Abram is relatively new to our family so we are still discovering his personality. As of right now he explores his new world with intensity and despises sleep. We have taught him to dance, to wave goodbye, to point where his nose is, and to give hugs. He has learned by himself how to talk back with a "Maaa!"
