Zach’s Goal

Zach’s goal, after finishing high school and going on a mission for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, is to join the army (the Green Berets, to be exact!), so I felt something camouflage was appropriate for his birthday gift packaging.

Kona and Karate

Kona has been in karate for years now, and he takes it very seriously, so this was his birthday gift packaging. The photo of Kona with his medals, from his first tournament, shows just how much he’s grown up…literally—I think he’s taller than me!

Makai’s Pirate Packaging

This was Makai’s birthday gift packaging (so cute and clever, I think!) because he’s into all things pirate. In fact, his bed is a pirate ship! Kona has always liked sharks, so his bed is in the ocean with the sharks. Sage did a masterful job at designing and decorating the room, including all the painting! Amazing, huh?

As I’ve said before, Sara loves all shade of purple—and has since she was a little girl, so this was her gift packaging.

Bright and Beautiful Card for Jackie

Sara and I happened to be together when we got word that Jackie Bolhuis had reached her one million career-milestone, and you could hear the excitement in her voice when we called to congratulate her! We hope this bright and beautiful card, designed especially for Jackie, expresses how excited we are for her accomplishment! Looking forward to seeing you and celebrating you in person, Jackie!

Happy Birthday, Baby

I tell Liam and Abbie “Shanna will always be my baby,” and they think that’s so funny! Today’s Shanna’s birthday, and although Facetime is better than nothing, I wish I could be with her and give her a big birthday hug. Instead, I sent this gift bag to her a week ago. Have a happy birthday, Shanna! Love you!

Wintery Scene for Cooper

While Cooper is good at a lot of things, a wall in the game room is filling fast with his oil paintings, so this birthday “package” seemed appropriate. There’s a tag (and money) tucked in a paper pocket on the back of the mini canvas. Plus, it’s appropriate because this wintery scene has been a familiar one around here, especially lately!

Guests of Honor

Gail and Jim Murray were our guests of honor this week for Gail’s million-milestone celebration, and we were thrilled to have the opportunity to recognize her for her incredible achievement. Every time an achiever walks through our Riverton doors, with all the employees cheering, I get the chills. As Gail walked in, she mentioned that no number of videos can prepare a person for that feeling. It’s amazing!

April and Angel Lopez were in Utah this week to celebrate April’s million-milestone achievement. Although April lives in Texas now, she’s originally from Utah, so several family members and a friend, who live here, joined in the celebration as we welcomed April and Angel to the Riverton home office.

Tanner and Amber

Tanner (our oldest grandson) and Amber were married on Friday, and it was fun to see how happy they were on their special day—almost giddy! Oh, to be young! Their temple sealing, the luncheon, and the reception were filled with family and friends who love them, and it was a wonderful day! It was cold outside, but thankfully the snow didn’t start until later in the evening, after the reception. Celebrating with Tanner and Amber as they begin their lives together was a sweet experience!

Hugs and Kisses and Lots of Love

As Sara and I were walking around the Riverton facility yesterday, handing out a chocolate Hug and Kiss to each employee (a 25-year old tradition!), I thought about all the good people in my life who I get to work with, and my heart swelled with emotion. Several shared their excitement for this tradition and how much they look forward to it. That made me happy! I’m grateful for the love I feel from and for all of the people in my life, including and especially my family. I am filled with love, and I love my life! I am truly blessed!

Handsome Valentine Box

Sometimes I’m scrambling at this point, but this Valentine’s Day I know what I’m giving to my sweetheart. In fact, I have two options for him to choose from…both little getaways that involve time together and horses—two things he loves! I’ve printed out the schedule of both events, and I’ll be adding some gourmet, special order chocolates to this handsome Valentine box as well. I’d love to know what you’re giving to your sweetheart…or what your plans are for Valentine’s Day. Please share!
