A week ago we returned from Wyoming. Jason parents are serving a mission there. We went to visit. The are serving at sixth crossing. We had so much fun. it was so fun to spend time with family.

 This day was so cold and even snowed on us.
 Jason had some fun and caught a snake.

 We got to visit were Bodil Mortenson was buried. She is the little pioneer girl we name Bodel after. It such a amazing place and the spirit is so strong there.
 We went on a trek. I honestly don't know how the Pioneers did it. Especially with kids.

It was a amazing experience. And a very humbling one.
 The spirit is so strong in that area of Wyoming.

 It was great experience to do with are kids. I know when we left Wyoming I could defiantly feel the spirit change. It is such sacred ground.

I guess it time

I guess I have taken enough time off blogging. I think I have found my desire to start back up. I have always loved blogging. I miss recording our life and memories. It hard for me some times with our blog. I feel like our blog is full of wonderful memories of our life and the hard things also in our life. I feel like we love are children all the same, None of them are any more important then another one. And with our children there are 3 that are adopted and soon to be two more. I feel like our blog makes are life not so private with those adoption's. It is hard when one of  children are being singled out from the rest and Jason and I are not happy about it. It makes a blog that I love to do very hard. And it makes everything I have loved and cherished about adoption very hard. I had to realizes that my family is our family, Jason and I and we have a great and happy family, And I miss not having the memories written down from them. I guess I just need to ignore the bad and enjoy the good. I have enough on my plate with 8 kids and being the relief society president right now that I don't need drama of any sort in our lives.

so here is to a new year and to new memories and hopefully a lot more blogging.
