A warm welcome inside the House of Baldwin

To our friends and neighbors, welcome inside the House of Baldwin.

  • It’s not a furniture brand with heavy influence from King Henry the VIII.
  • Nor is it a tribute site to the Baldwin piano.
  • It’s NOT a sensationalized rumor mill for the family of actors Alec, Billy, or Stephen Baldwin.

It’s a place to publish and share the comings and goings of Dad, Mom, Junior, Bud, Sis, and Little Sis Baldwin.

Welcome inside.

Move It Round the Rhythm

Hey, brother, what you thinking?
Leave that old record spinning
You feel the rhythm, going
Let’s end your time to lay low
Your knees a-bending, so
It’s time to get up and let go…

Lone Digger, Caravan Place

Time Passes

My all time favorite song is Time by Pink Floyd. I thought that since I keep getting older and time is passing by me every day, I would take a look at my life over the years. I already created a movie of when I was a young girl with whatever video footage there was of me. Thus, I decided to use only video footage after I was married, and after we actually started taking video, which was–of course–after the birth of our first child.

2017: Wyatt’s Disco Bus

It was Super Bowl 2017 and we were enjoying the festivities at Shawn and Jill’s house. Who knew that during half time a Disco Bus would pull up out front? We all felt so groovy as we toured Wyatt and friend’s Disco Bus. Sadly, the boys had to sell it before leaving on their missions.

Welcome Home Elder Baldwin

A little video about Bud’s homecoming at the airport. It was pretty emotional. I think I said that before. But it was. It’s funny how similar, yet different, the experience is with each child. Fun either way though. I love my boys.

Tuesday Afternoon

When I was a young girl, my family had a motorhome that we took drives and vacations in. My Dad loved the Moody Blues, Days of Future Past, album. While on these drives, he would play the tape in the 8-track stereo of our motorhome. We would listen to the songs while looking out the windows as we traversed the highways of the West. So naturally whenever we children hear the album, it takes us back to those carefree, childhood days.

Cul-de-Sac of Fire

It is a Graff family tradition to meet on the 4th of July for a barbecue and fireworks. Initially we celebrated in our cul-de-sac; hence “The Cul-de-Sac of Fire.” However, after 2011 our city banned fireworks east of Highway 146, so we had to find another location. Francine’s family offered their home in 2012, but we were busted by the police while lighting our fireworks. Since then, the tradition has taken place in the Concrete Jungle of Orem at Barry’s house. This video showcases the event up to 2012. I will have to create a new video showcasing 2013 and on.

The Call

After ten excruciating days of looking at an un-opened mission call, friends and family gathered to hear where the prophet called Junior to serve his two-year proselyting mission.
