TB and the Mission call

After a long month of John trying to submit his mission papers, it finally happened. It seems that John picked up the Taberculosis germ before he left for BYU (probably at work) and tested possative during his physical. While it was not a threat to him, he could have a problem later on in life so he is on a 9 month treatment plan. He was cleared to serve a mission but only in the states due to ongoing TB treatment (antibiotics) and liver testing, as the treatment is hard on your liver. Via skype he open his call in his BYU dorm room with about 40 kids from home and his roommates

He is going to New Hampshire, Manchester Mission. It takes in all of Main, Vermont, New hampshite and the top of New York and the top of Mass. It is very ironic - the only thing that he complained about at BYU was the cold. BOY OH BOY he will face 40 below at his mission. He has become very converted to California while at BYU, this will really set that in stone.

John and two of his friends going on missions within a few weeks of him, after going through the temple for the first time. John is very lucky, he has about 20 of his close frinds out on missions right now.

While John was busy with school and trying to get his mission papers submitted we were all enjoying a week camping at the beach. Whit and Christa always allow me to take Mazur places with me(very good sports) and it just so happened this time on the first night he fell around the fire and got a third degree burn on his leg. The rest of the week I had to wrap it twice a day and start debreeing it three days into it. It took Uncle Michael to hold him down to remove the dead skin daily so it wouldn't become infected. Bad bad grandma!

Ah... Success for both Logan and Afton. Everybody likes the camp fire.

Mazur "enjoying" some uncle love at my 53rd birthday party...

Grandpa doing his thing, that seems to always work. Why do babies fight going to sleep? I love it!

Random Memories from 2008

Me, Ashlee and Heidi doing Marine life inventory and the Back Bay Science center. Several of my kids helped me out at my job on a regular basis. After a year of being in charge of the Shark mobile Ashlee still has not made frinds with my sharks. Sad!

Newport Beach - Mazur, Marc, John and Neal

Grandma dumping Aunt Ashlee and Mazur off the tube, on accident of course. Aunt Ashlee is trying to talk him into another slower ride. He wouldn't have it!

John dodging rocks at Shaver and keeping everyone going on the wakeboard.

Mazur and Aunt Heidi enjoying the nature while camping.

Every year Ashlee and one of her best friends, Craig, put on a masguerade ball in October. It is a big thing and it is by invitation only. This year Ashlee, Michael and John all went. The the dracular theme was great fun for all of them especially Michael.

After 18 years, John traded his room at home for a BYU Provo dorm room. We miss him, he is a great communicater and I miss all the conversations. He hopes to be off on his mission by the end of summer so he can return in time for school to start. We are proud of you John!

Christmas at the Greens

Thanksgiving weekend at the Green house brought everyone home this year. We are so greatful for that. There is NOTHING I love more than to have all my kids here. This summer we all got away camping to Shaver lake for the week. Great fun for all!

In memory of our beloved Walter. This month after years of enjoying our, most unique, inguana, we had to let him go due to paralysis. It was very hard for us, Walter has been in our family for years. He has gone on all our family vacation, gone to college with Heidi and Ashlee and holds a very special place in our heart. Goodbye Walter!
Whats Ashlee doing? She has gone back to school to get a degree in History and possibly in English. She is the RS President in her singles ward for the second time around. Ash works at a law office about 30 hours a week. (30 years)

Whitney and Mazur enjoying a little family time. This is the only time Mazur was smiling during our family photo. Whit is working at a diesel shop and is looking for a new job. (28 years, 4 years)

Uncle Marc and Afton. Marc sporting his newly grown beard. Congratulations on that first time accomplishment Marc. What is he doing? He works as an instalation tech for Comcast cable and really enjoys it. (26 years)

Logan, Heidi and Afton (7 weeks old)

Uncle Michael and Mazur at Walking with the Dinasour, they are both doing their best T-rex inpersonations. The winner is.... Mazur wanted to go home he was so scared in the beginning. After Ashlee explained that it was all mechanical he decided to stay. What is Mike doing? He is going to Fresno State and teaches Mission Prep in his singles Ward. He is a supervisor at UPS and works from 4 - 10 every morning, then, off to school.
John will kill me for this picture. He didn't want a Court of Honor, he just wanted us to pick his Eagle Scout award up from the scout office and give it to him. Whats he doing... John is leaving for BYU Provo in two weeks and we are all excited for him, he is turning in his mission papers in March and hopes to leave in the summer so he will be back for the beginning of the semester. We will cross our fingers on that one! He works for Target and just got a transfer to the Orem store.

Bring in the Christmas tree! Mazur was so excited, while at the tree lot he wanted us to buy one for each room.

Afton is just starting to smile. She is so sweet and fun. She has colic and it is so hard for Logan and Heidi to see her hurt.

Not only did Logan and Heidi get a new baby this year they both got diplomas YEAH!!!!! Now on to Grad school.
