I have to explain the attached picture of Cody with the TV. I laughed so hard when I saw this picture. We get garbage dumpsters put in our neighborhood every summer for 1 day for people to put all their big garbage and yard trimmings in. The last year before Cody’s mission, he and his buddy, Brandon, kept finding these random TV’s all over the neighborhood and brought home about 3 in a couple of weeks' time. I told him I didn’t want all of these huge TV’s in our home, to go along with a small fridge he got from a friend (because it didn’t work and his parents were throwing it away). He said he was going to get the fridge to work again. Well, we got rid of the TV’s he collected and the mini fridge after he left on his mission. I’m not sure we told him about that. haha. Oh well. One of them was absolutely huge. With everyone purchasing flat screen TV’s these days, they are throwing away perfectly good TV’s, but we don’t need a dozen big bulky TV’s around just because we can. Sooooooo, when I saw this picture of the TV, I just about died. Not sure if it was from laughter or from a panic attack. Haha. He is a funny boy.
These pictures are of Cody and the other missionaries who helped their bishop moved this large rock down by a garden area next to their home in Palmdale California.. The bishop's wife sent these to me pictures to me with a sweet note about how hard they worked. It is fun to see all their smiles. Awesome boys aren't they!!! They worked very hard to get this rock down where it was wanted. Looks like they had a lot of fun doing it. Cody has grown very close to these young men.
