26 years ago, Annie gave me an early morning wake up shove followed with, "My water just broke, we need to go to the hospital". A short time later Kristin Marie Emmett entered this world. We were so excited and blessed and have felt that way ever since. She is wonderful daughter and sister. She is a loyal friend, hard worker and the best daughter in the world. Happy Birthday Kristin!

Last Saturday, Kristin and a few friends ran the SLC marathon and half marathon. Kristin has been suffering with knee pain while training but gutted it out with the help of a little ibuprofen (I don't know where she learned that). The weather was chilly, the knee started hurting at mile two and the pain increased on the downhill portion. She finished in a respectable of 2:54, about 30 minutes longer than her previous best time. Congratulations to Kristin for sticking with it all the way to the finish line.

Brian is departing early Sunday morning for Mozambique! This is a BYU study abroad program. Among other things, Brian will be teaching English to school kids. Where, you ask is Mozambique? What language do they speak there? You could check out this link or wait for updates from Brian. http://www.state.gov/r/pa/ei/bgn/7035.htm

Happy Birthday to the best dad ever!
Who else could have got Jake on a mission and taught him to (eventually) love skiing? Plus, he "encourage" Jake to propose to Lesa.
Thanks for your great example and support,
Love, Jake, Lesa, Ben, Molly and Erin

HAPPY BIRTHDAY DAD! HAPPY BIRTHDAY GRANDPA!! HAPPY BIRTHDAY GREAT GRANDPA!!! Your knees, back and ankles aren't what they used to be, but you inspire us each time you buckle up, click in and jump on the chairlift. While there are thousands of examples of things we admire and respect about you, this tribute is dedicated to your skiing legacy - May it live on and continue to grow for generations to come. We all expect to see you back on the slopes next Christmas with a new titanium rod holding your back together. Good luck with the upcoming surgery! (note: click on any photo to see larger version)

Here's some help. For a list of missions go to http://www.ldsmissions.net/
My memory is not so good, but this is my best effort at a list of where Michael's other family members have served:

What a great way to approach 80! Many thanks, Bob, from both of us. Now if I can only remember what Bob has walked me through over the phone. I was really relieved to get the report on Jo Ann and it was much better than I expected. I was afraid they wouldn't be able to do much surgically but it sounds like a Herculean effort really did take place. I forgot to ask whether you have to sign contributions so I'll end with Papa John just to be sure.

While John was off to Aspen skiing with Beth's brothers and friends, Beth, Jack, her mom, sister Marci and her boys, Porter and Seth, came to California to stay with Grandma and Grandpa Miller. Beth and Jack stopped by Irvine for a couple of days. It might be my favorite Easter visit ever! Jack had plenty of smiles to share.
