Weekend update

Saturday, we spent the morning at the Festival of Trees to celebrate the Lucy tree.  Pictures are below.

In the evening, we heard Beethoven's 9th at the symphony, and I'm sorry to say it was disappointing.  The orchestra seemed sluggish as if they'd been beaten down with switches.  The soloists were excellent but they couldn't carry the whole thing, nor could the choir.

Then we walked over to Temple Square to see the Christmas lights. It was unusually noisy with lots of teenagers.  One could smell the hormones.  The lights were lovely as always.

This year's tree sold for $4000. Ole, Sarah.  All proceeds go to Primary Children's Hospital.

Lucy on the day of her death.  She was awake all morning to greet all the aunts, uncles and cousins who came to say good-bye.

Sam, Sarah, Elliot Louis and Sally

Louise, Tom and Louis--Louis won the reflections contest for art and received a medal which said on the back, "Louise Plummer."  I had my picture in the paper in 9th grade for an art project and it was labeled, "Louis Roose."  So Louis and I are destined to be interchangable.

The inimitable Sally


  1. Wow, the Lucy tree and that sweet baby unexpectedly pulled on my heart strings. Beautiful tree for a beautiful baby.
