Ginger Dee Clinton R.I.P. 7/20/08

My friend from church, Ginger, passed away unexpectedly early Sunday morning. She had a seizure in her sleep and her heart stopped. She was 33 and in good health. She leaves behind a great husband and 4 beautiful children ages 7,6,3, and 1 years old. Our ward is devestated. We were out of town so I got word late and it took me a while to process it. It still doesn't seem real. The funeral was on my birthday and I couldn't believe how many people were there, The Thousand Oaks Stake center was full, people were standing in the back. This is no suprise how could you not love Ginger? I'm looking at the program with her face and I just cannot believe it? What I do know for sure is that she is with our father in heaven and I will see her again. I am so grateful for the plan of salvation and that I know these things are true. I can't imagine going through death, especially when it has happened way too soon, without God and a testimony of Jesus Christ. My favorite, most recent memory of Ginger is on the 4th of July. We were at the Emery's swimming pool. I am really tan and sometimes it is kind of embarassing, like I lay out all day..I swear I use SPF30,Steve calls me his little lamanite, anyways Ginger showed up and she was really tan too! I said to her "Ging, I am so glad your here, I hate being the only dark person." We had so much fun that day, I was doing all my tricks for her daughters. At the b.b.q after we all sat around chatting. I really am glad she was there that day and I got that time with her. I will miss her so much. Please say a prayer for her family.

Fun with Grandma

On Thursday we got together with Grandma Fenske and Maryann. We went swimming at baby Sarah's pool.It's always fun to go to someone elses pool. Then had lunch at Pizzatopia, an all you can eat pizza buffet in Simi Valley. Thanks for lunch grandma!
Grandma and Grandpa Fenske are off on a 3 week vacation to Canada and Utah for cousin Preston's baptism so we had the family over Sunday to see them off safely. Lucas and I got our birthday presents early!$$$$ We will put it to good use, we are heading off to San Diego on Thurs. my sister and her family are coming from New York! I love my family and I am so grateful for their love and generosity.

Pudding Face

I love sugar free chocolate pudding with cool whip. It is the best low calorie treat! Lucas loves it too! I thought these were some funny pictures so I'm posting them.
