Although Rudy's kid's have not spoken to us or seen us in many years...we were blessed to have Melissa send us this adorable photo of Rudy's granddaughter, Savanna, for her 11th birthday. She is growing up fast!
Is it just Coincidence?
I was JUST recently talking about Jacobs Appendicitis on a previous post and I JUST found out that my niece, Lexi Cazier, my children's cousin, my sisters twin, was in the hospital because her Appendix burst!
That is very dangerous and can kill a person if not cleaned out immediately.
Poor thing. I hope she gets better fast. I heard she had been in the hospital for two days last week.
I wonder how kids so young get this awful situation?
I am sure that from now on, Jacob and his cousin Lexi will have to eat super clean and healthy foods, and NOT allow ANY foreign or dangerous substances into their body now that they may have gut issues the rest of their lives.
It will be vitally important for them to have clean intestines!!
Makes me sad for them.
However, I am glad they are OK and didn't die!
Appendicitis Diet: Can Foods Lead to This Disorder?
Amanda and Evan, my niece and her hubby, are having their first baby. (My brother's daughter) I think she is 25 yrs old, and he is...somewhere around there also.
Anyway, isn't that exciting for my brother Brad and Erika. ♥
They all just found out on Saturday!!! (about it being a boy or girl of course) They will have adorable kids for sure.
We are very happy for them.👶
As my brother said, "No one knew, not even the parents, if they were going to have a boy or a girl until the balloon popped."

Small Town, Big Plans
Hey Loved ones,
How are you doing? Well here in Carlos the cows are truly accepting the Gospel. HAHAHA
Its a beautiful small town here. And the people accept the Gospel really well. We already have 5 people working towards baptism. We hope to convert this group into a branch soon. The Lord always works to make his vineyard better.
It is a beautiful experience to be here in the Mission and to be in small places with big plans. Truly one learns to trust the Lord and do his will. The members are so great and the gospel is sooo true. If you doubt it, pray to god. Read the Book of Mormon, search and ye shall find it.
I love you all. Here is a scripture that always helps me.
D&C 121. Love you. Elder Holler

My sister Melissa Hatch Charters had this to say today.
"It was hard dropping Dallin off at BYU yesterday. Didn’t he just get home from his mission? I had to shed a few tears! He’s decided to major in mechanical engineering! I think he’ll do great!"
We think he will do well. He reminds me SO much of my son, Andrew Sterling Holler. It was fun seeing him at the Reunion ♥
OK folks, I wasn't going to post these publicly but everyone is having a difficult time opening these on their Google Drive app. or emails.
So here they are below.
This family group photo did NOT include everyone who came to the Reunion since some came early...and some showed up late.
It was a fun and special day!! We sure missed the Holler boys! (but that didn't stop us from talking about them)
We hope they make it to the next one!!
Later that same evening just nearby was the Wedding Reception of my niece Amanda Hatch (my sons cousin) to Evan Clark.
When my oldest son, Austin S Holler was a baby, many people told me that he looked JUST LIKE the baby character in the newest movie out called "Look Who's Talking" about a baby whose mind was being read on the film.
A cute blonde baby and the hilarious story of his thoughts as you spend the day with this child. Very handsome and adorable toddler played this part on film, so that was a great compliment to Austin.
WELL, I guess it IS Austin who is talking now' !!!
My son, Austin, has graduated with his Masters in Computer Science, from University of Colorado, Boulder in Colorado. May 11, 2018
I want him to HAVE IT ALL ~~
My intelligent, caring, awesome cousin, Chris Raleigh (Howard Hatch's nephew) posted an amazing post on Facebook a few days ago.
I copied it and pasted it below ♥
For every Insta Post with smiling faces and sun drenched beaches, there are a thousand real life posts that only get posted in the halls of heaven. Social media deletes the days of depression which are filled with tears because dreams literally slip between our fingers. On those days there is One Person whose paper posts don't feature a beach, but rather a shore, where the sun is often hidden by the storms of life. On those deleted days, there is one place that can never be "snapped."
There is a Holy House where the storms of life get calmed by His matchless power and grace. In this house the only mention of a "feed" includes a story about lambs.
As one of his lost lambs, I praise His Holy Name in His Holy House, as often as occasion permits. There is only one name under heaven which offers hope during our deleted days, that is the name of JESUS!
Family is SO important. Good relationships are so important too!
Here, are some fun photos recently taken of some of my big extended family.
This first one, above, is of my youngest sister Michelle, with her Dr. husband Corey, and their 7 children. The oldest, Elizabeth, has their family's first baby grandchild, Jane, in her arms, and husband Jaron Beckwith is next to her. My sister Michelle is looking pretty good, for having such a big family ♥ even if she has her moments, sometimes. I love her anyway. ♥ We've been good friends most of our lives.
Below, you see lots of recent photos of my extended family (my bros and sis with their kids) In other words, My nieces and nephews (or also, my childrens cousins and their Aunts and Uncles)
"Happy Easter everyone!"
Yeeee Haw! ~ This Utah cowboy loves EVERYONE. (Seriously, I think he even ♥ loves his enemies) My dad has always been a very caring person. Here he is, this Easter weekend, showing us his Cowboy angle. (haha) So funny...makes me laugh. (sometimes drives me crazy...but always makes me laugh) * March 2018
At this fun celebration, my niece, Elizabeth Philpot Beckwith, (my children's cousin), brought her 1st and only baby, "Jane Victoria Beckwith", to the Temple on Jessica's special day last week. Jane is 9 months old and so cute.
(*fun side note; My sister Melissa has two kids named Jessica and Dallin...and the Mother of Dallin McKenzie has named two of her kids Dallin and Jessica!) HA! Over the years they will have a hard time knowing WHO is WHO now that Dallin McKenzie married Jessica Charters!) (Get it? Dallin McKenzie has a sister named Jessica...AND...Jessica Charters has a brother named Dallin Charters) 🤣
Many of us had fun talking about how when my brother Brad had been married in the SLC Temple I had brought baby Austin to this special day and many people enjoyed having Austin there to smile at, hold, and play with. Austin was such a HAM!
Then, one year later, my sister, Melissa, got married at the SLC Temple also, (27 years ago) and again, I had brought baby Austin with me, and EVERYONE loved seeing Austin and playing with him and holding him, on Melissa and Rich's special day.
Austin was the first grandchild and the ONLY baby there for all of us, and EVERYONE in the Hatch family loved him and loved spoiling him! He made us smile and warmed out hearts ♥
Just as Austin was the star of the family gatherings both days so long ago (actually he ALWAYS was)
...so was Michelle's grand-baby "Jane", a few days ago at Melissa's oldest daughter, Jessica's Charters, Temple marriage in SLC. Both such adorable babies, but separated by many years.
It brought back really GREAT memories!!
We had fun holding her and making her laugh and smile. The similarities of this coincidence made many of us smile with JOY in rememberance.
(Here is a pic of baby Austin at Brad's wedding... and one of Austin when we brought him to Melissa's Temple wedding and Brad was holding him and chasing him around the temple grounds.)
