Grandpa Logan

My Grandpa Logan passed away on Thursday. I thought this was a great tribute to him.

Robert Emmett Logan, 86, passed away peacefully on January 26, 2012 in Buffalo, Wyoming. Bob was born on March 24, 1925 in Beaudette, Minnesota, to William Joseph and Mabel Josephine Logan. He married Betty Dawn Ell, his high school sweetheart, on December 12, 1947, in Ortonville, Minnesota. They are the parents of five children.
Bob was the oldest of six children and grew up working on the family farm in Ortonville. He graduated from Ortonville High School in 1943. After marriage, Bob and Betty continued to farm in Minnesota for several years until moving to Casper, Wyoming in 1952 with their son and two daughters. Bob began working as a paleontologist for Shell Oil Company in Casper, when he was transferred to Salt Lake City, Utah shortly after his third daughter was born in 1953. After 12 years in Salt Lake, Bob was transferred to Farmington, New Mexico, where his second son was born. In 1966 Bob left Shell Oil and moved the family to Jackson, Wyoming, where he purchased an Enco dealership. He sold the business three years later and moved his family to their final home in Buffalo, Wyoming. Bob and Betty were hired by Reynolds Aluminum, where Bob managed all operations at the Lake DeSmet Lodge and Marina. When Texaco bought out Reynolds, Bob stayed on as part of the maintenance staff, where he worked until he retired in 1984. In his many happy years of retirement he stayed busy gardening, repairing furniture, and helping out at Ron’s Plumbing, which Bob always said was the best job he ever had. Bob was known for his quick wit, lively sense of humor, and mischievous grin.
Bob Logan is survived by his wife of 64 years; his daughters LeeAnn (Dennis) Moser of Cedar City, Utah, and Laurie Logan and Lynn (Tim) O’Gan of Buffalo; his son Michael (Charity) Logan of Eureka, California; his sister Betty (Jerry) Miksche of Ripon, California; his brother Bill Logan of! Story; and his seven grandchildren and five great-grandchildren. He was preceded in death by his parents, his son John Logan, and his sisters Shirley Evers, Donna Stine, and Vera Tice.

We love you so much Grandpa! You will be greatly missed!!

It's a Girl!!!

We had our first ultrasound a couple of weeks before Christmas. I was convinced that we would be having a boy, but the ultrasound tech told us that we are going to have a baby girl! Curt and I were so excited!! We kept it a secret for just about a week and then we told everyone while we were together in Salt Lake. We went to Salt Lake with some of both mine and Curt's families to go to the Mormon Tabernacle Choir Christmas Concert. I made chocolate cupcakes with pink cream cheese filling in the middle. We had everyone eat a cupcake to find out what we were having. I am so mad that I didn't take any pictures. Andrew and Dallin are so excited to have a baby sister. She will be joining our family in the middle of May.

Family Pics 2011

Andrew Lost a Tooth!!

I had to document this memorable day! On November 6, 2011 Andrew lost his first tooth. He was pretty nervous about letting Mom pull it, but once I did he was really excited. The tooth fairy brought him two $2.00 bills. Andrew thought that was pretty neat!!


Disneyland 2011

This October we went to Disneyland with Billy, Shelly, Samantha, Malia and Mom. We had such a fun time! We spent three days at Disneyland and a day at the beach. We stayed at the Disneyland Paradise Pier Hotel. It was nice being so close to the parks and it also came with a lot of perks. One of the highlights of our trip was our dinner at Goofy's Kitchen. We got to interact with a lot of different characters and the food was Yummy! We had such a good time!!


Andrew started soccer again this Fall. He is doing great and we love going to his games!!

A Trip to Remember.........

I have set a goal of catching up my scrapbooking and blog. Since I am WAY behind on my scrapbooking it sounds much easier to start with the blog! For Labor Day we went camping up Cedar Canyon with Mom and Dad.

Camping is one of our favorite things to do together as a family, but this trip ended up not so great. On Sunday we loaded up in Curt's truck and went for a drive to explore the area. Our puppy Polly had been in the truck for quite awhile and so we decided to let her get out and run.....not such a good idea. She ran under our truck and we ran her over. After an expensive trip to the emergency vet we found out that she had broken her pelvis. It was a sad day for all of us. It took a lot of TLC to get her back to normal, but now she is doing great. That gave us all quite a scare!!
