About us

Robert is a computer 'geek' and I say that in the most affectionate way possible! He keeps our home network up and running. Right now he works for Convergys in Orem in their technical support department for Netapp. Rob has the most common sense out of anyone I've ever met. He also is one of the most 'creative' people I have EVER known. Within minutes of getting a 'new toy' he's got it taken apart figuring out how to 'maximize' it's potential.

Heather is a 'die hard' animal lover. Rob is VERY tolerant of her zoo. Right now she has 6 cats, 2 dogs, 5 birds, 1 RES Turtle, 1 Betta Fish, 1 Tank of guppies (see The Thompson Zoo) for more about their daily adventures. Rob is very understanding, and coming from a background of not really an animal lover other than birds, he's quite taken with them :) Heather works full time for her father at Camelot Pet Resort, Spa & Health Center in Bountiful, she is the Manager and Veterinary Technician. Heather is also an Independant Representative for several direct sales companies, she offers Gourmet Food, Scrapbooking, Pet Supplies, Candles and Natural Home Care products.

A little story....

There once was a couple that thought that they were going to have a baby, along came aunt flo who sat down beside her and washed the baby away. It has been 5 years, flo needs to take a hike for nine months and leave us alone. I was showing all the signs for early pg except the missed period, thought this time for sure, Rob was even looking at baby cribs online. Nope, foiled once day...hopefully.

New Family Member....

Nope, sorry not an announcement of that kind...maybe one day we'll get lucky :) Until then...and probably after you'll just have to put up with our four-legged fur kids!
......Meet Georgie....He is a 3 year old Pomeranian that was up for adoption at the clinic, I begged Rob for about a month before he finally relented and let me bring him home for good :) He loves him just as much as I do! He really is a great dog. Anyways here are some pictures.
In the picture with the 3 dogs he's the one in the middle, the little shar pei puppy is "Wrath" for those who remember "Rage" the shar pei who used to board in the VIP Suites, he passed a few years back, and they just recently got Wrath who is a very cute adorable blue sharpei. He's way cute, and full of himself. The other one is Beasley the beagle who would love a home if you know anyone looking for a great, energetic, loving beagle!

Grandma Sims

Heather's Grandma Sims had a stroke on Monday. She was moved to a nursing home on friday, and has decided it is time to go as she doesn't want to live in the nursing home like that (feeding tube, oxygen, iv's for fluid) she lost her swallowing/gag reflex with her stroke so was/is at risk for aspiration pneumonia, she pulled out her IV's and Feeding Tube and told the staff she doesn't want them back. They say she probably has 24-72 hours maybe more, it's hard to say. They are giving her pain medications. Heather was able to travel to Evanston (thanks Jennifer for the ride) to see her and recieve one last hug from Grandma, but she was extremely tired. I am comforted by the fact that she will be going into the arms of her beloved husband, Ronald who passed on in 1995 (15 years ago). Grandma has been preparing for this day, she has already planned her funeral services (back in 2005) and has everything in order. She is a remarkable woman who lived on her own up until now, she is 92 years old. She still was active with quilting for humanitarian projects etc. I hope that she is able to pass away peacefully in her sleep. I am truly grateful for the knowledge that we have of the hereafter that we will be able to be with our loved ones once more if we remain faithful. This is a picture of Grandma and Heather taken in December at Uncle Larry's Funeral. I never noticed this before but I think I have her chin. I know a lot of people tell me I look like my Aunt Judy.
