Snow Fun

This is us on Christmas Eve

These pictures are of the view along the road on the way to Snow Bunny

I hope everyone had a perfectly lovely Christmas. We really missed everyone, so I thought I'd share some of our latest pictures with you. We are getting into the groove again, boy! moving takes it out of ya! I think I'm back on a normal chore schedule, the kids like school, although they don't go back until the 7th. Mark is getting a handle on work,(what a mess that is!!) so we're doing fine. It is pretty grey and gloomy most of the time, but the beauty makes up for that. We are anxious to see what 2008 holds for us, and all of you. May we all be worthy of the Lords richest blessings this coming year and always. We love you all and pray for your safety and success daily. Hugs!!!!!

Happy Festivus!

Here we are with our traditional aluminum pole! Also, it's Joseph Smith's birthday--celebrate with us (AFTER the Airing of Grievances and Feats of Strength, of course) by reading 3 Nephi chapter one, Christmas in America (because there's no better way to celebrate Joseph smith's birth than reading about the Savior's birht in the Book of Mormon!).

May all your Festivus dreams come true!
Have fun at Aunt Marti's tomorrow, AZ peeps...we'll REEEEEALLY be missing you!

Happy Birthday

Happy Birthday to All who is born In December


Scott and Steve, back in the day. They OWNED the 2nd ward primary.

Steve in Mexico, October 2007.

Doin' the happy dance. Rend Lake, Ill., November 2007.

I just wanted to give mad props (a good deal of recognition for all those who don't speak the "lingo") to Steve for reaching the pinnacle of Scouting: advancing to the rank of Eagle. I'm proud of you, kid!

Oh, and happy "I'm now an adult" birthday! I love you!

A Christmas wish

"This Christmas, Mend A quarrel, Seek out a forgotten friend, Dismiss suspicion and replace it with trust, Write a letter, Give a soft answer. Encourage youth, Manifest your loyalty in word and deed, Keep a promise, Forgo a grudge, Forgive an enemy, Apologize, Try to understand, Examine your demands on others, Think first of someone else, Be kind, Be gentle, Laugh a little more, Express your gratitude, Welcome a stranger, Gladden the heart of a child, Take pleasure in the beauty and wonder of the earth, Speak your love and then speak it again." Howard W. Hunter Have a beautiful Christmas Season, I love you all!!!!

Has Anybody Seen This?

I just read about a pilot ad campaign from the church. It looks beautiful. Click HERE to check it out (you may have to click play). The whole story is HERE.

The spirit testifies of truth, even through the TV!

I love and miss you all!
We are having so much fun preparing for Christmas! Hooray for new family traditions and a whole month to be thankful for Jesus! I will have new pix soon at my blog.
