A good day.

Yesterday was such a great day. Sorry no pictures. My mom and sister Holly and kids came
down and we had a ton of fun. We made hair bows cut vinyl and took about 1000 kids out to eat. My sister Tiff even came by for awhile. We had a ton fun. Thanks so much for coming.

Then last night a knock at the door. It was our bishop and one of his counselors just coming by to say hi. I love when they come by and the spirit that they bring into our home while they are here. Our Bishop I'm sure being inspired told us about this article in the Ensign and wanted us to read it. As we crawled in to bed last night I read it to Jason. It's funny how it was what I was really needed to read. It was what I was searching for. It is a wonderful article by Jeffrey Holland. I encourage you all to find it and read it. I have been sitting here the last few weeks wondering about the new year and what it is to bring. I know that we have had a hard year. But we have had such great things happen to us that they out weigh all the bad. As this new year approaches I will look back and think of all the great blessing we have received this year. I will know what better people we are because of the trials we have faced, and be thankful for them. I will look to the future and think of all the great things that are going to happen this year.
A few things I'm looking forward to is a week at Disneyland in Feb with the kids. Then in March off to Cozumel for a week with Jason. Then in July we are taking off to Nauvoo. Can't decide yet if we are taking the kids or just us yet. We never go any where so we are pretty excited. Baxter receives the Priest stood in Feb. A lot more family temple work to be done. And Hopefully Jason will return to the floor again as a Fireman. He is getting stronger every day and feeling better. I'm slowly learning to not dwell on the past and to live for today. I have such wonderful sweet kids and a wonderful husband that is so good to me. We both have such wonderful family's. We have great friends and a great Bishop and ward that we just love. A store down the road with all the chocolate I can eat. What else do you need. I think so many times it is so easy to see all the bad. That when you look right in front of you, there is so much good, your just refusing to see it.

Here is a little part of that talk that I really liked. Keep your eyes on your dreams, however distant and far away. Live to see the miracles of repentance and forgiveness, of trust and divine love that will transform your life today, Tomorrow, and forever. Here is to a new year I hope and wish everyone a wonderful new Year.

A trip to St. Thomas

We woke up and decide that we need to start to burn off some of all the fudge,Chocolate,candy,Cookies you name it. We headed out to St. Thomas it is a old town near here. Lake mead usually covers the old town. But the lake is so low you can walk threw the whole town. It was way fun. There still quite a lot of foundations and a chimney left. Its in pretty good shape after all that time under water.

Merry Christmas

We had a great Christmas! Brielle woke up in shock, She could not believe her eyes a barbie jeep in her Family room.
We heard a loud sound about 6:00 am and we decide the boys would not stay in bed any longer.

Jason got bullets and a cool game camera that you can put up out side and it takes pictures of animals at night. He is bound and determined to catch whats been eating our cat food at night.

Baxter got this new mountain bike he was pretty excited. I don't think that Santa took in account that his knee was steal broken.

Bridger got a Nintendo DS and was thrilled.

Boston got this electric scooter. We bought him all these pads for his knees and elbows thinking he would crash a lot. But to our surprise he did so good and goes really fast on it.

Brielle out side with the boys. She jumped out of her barbie jeep and lifted up the lid she could not figure out why it would not go as fast as Boston's scooter.

Brielle was pretty sure the cat needed a ride. Brielle Barbie jeep was one of the gifts given to us from the guys at the Fire Department. She just loves it. I'm so thankful for there kindness that they have shown us.

Jason and Baxter went in together and bought me a new Clarinet for Christmas. It was quite the surprise.

Jason got me this really cool picture. I saw it one day at Desert Book and I have wanted it ever since. The name of the picture is peace is coming.

Jason also bought me these really cool candy cane roses. He picked them out himself he did a great job.
