Hi All

Hey everybody! How is everyone? I have recently opened my own business and was wondering if you could all spread the word. My site is The Littlest Daisy, my blog is and my shop is I am having a giveaway so whoever becomes a follower and leaves a comment gets entered into the drawing. I am selling interchangeable beaded watchbands, and the watch faces. I could use all the help I can get!

Thanks, love to all!

Thanks Carla

Our reunion was great, thank you Carla for planning it. I know I had to be dragged kicking and screaming to actually do it, but it was great when we got there. Carla, I would love to see your pics and Mechelle, you too, from the reunion. I had minimal ones.

Daddy Ray might be good to visit with, he put up with my little jokes and songs the last two days. I don't think he is eating though, so we are praying he lasts til you come. Love Mom--Melanie

OK, so apparently grandpa is in the hospital and isn't doing very well. He's having trouble breathing. That's about all I really know, I just thought I'd post this in case there are those of you who haven't heard yet. If you have more details, feel free to post. Lets all pray for him. Love to all!

We're Moving

I don't remember the address, but we are moving in about a week.
This is the model of the house that we are getting.

It's pretty exciting. The only downside to it is actually packing and moving our stuff.
Our current house we will be renting out to some people that John knows from work. They have an intent to buy, if their daughter likes the school. We are feeling quite blessed. We really wanted to find a house with room to grow, and a bigger yard, for less than we paid for this house. And we did!

Cliff and Lara's Carlsbad '08 trip

CLiff and Lara's family at the entrance to the Slaughter Canyon Cave after a hard, hot hike! White Sands was also amazing for those who have never gone. We visited Commandment rock near Las Lunas, NM which is supposed
to be a part of the Ten Commandments in modified Hebrew?

Cousins Marc might not know

This should be fun for Marc. Most of these people are your cousins. Maybe one or two is the date of or wife of or cousin of your cousin. But the for most part you're related.

Uncle Tommy had some kind of knee surgery and then he was finally home with a walker no less and Aunt Babs went outside on her back porch to see what the dog was barking at and she was bit by a rattlesnake! Uncle Tommy then proceeded to kill it with his cane. They flew her to Phoenix and gave her anitvenom. That's all I know.

I'm pregnant!
Due sometime in September.

Friday, January 23, 2009


So I think that Early June is good for the reunion. It's been a long time since we all got together, everyone is all grown up, mostly. It was nice to see Kent's family at the Moody reunion, but I think all the Costner kids and grandkids need to get together. I don't know about you, but I miss my family.

So lets all work together to get together!

Keri said: I was able to submit nearly 600 names for baptism & endowment, nearly 500 sealing to parents, and 140 sealing to spouses.


I actually found it harder to do the Smith & Dobbins names, so that is interesting what you say about the DNA. I didn’t get any pictures off of Do I need to have a membership to get them?

The names are at the Albuquerque Temple in the Kirtland 5th Ward file. Anyone can ask for them (I think at the recorder’s office? I’m not sure how the Albuq. Temple works, exactly. I know it’s different than Provo.) You and all of the other family are more than welcome to do the names! My name will be on the cards. I have submitted a few other families from my husband’s side, so it is possible that the names come from his lines, though. As I was going through my research, I could tell that someone had done several periods of work on the Gililland line (some in the 70’s and some more recent, but I can’t remember the dates.) I’m guessing that was some of your work I saw.

I believe I’ve seen the Nielson names as the sources on many of the names that were listed on FamilySearch. I should probably contact them to see what they’ve done & what they can offer.
