For Our Missionary

Serving but not forgotten. We sent this photo to Kevin, who is currently serving in the Nebraska, Omaha Mission. We sure love him!

Time to Sing Another Verse

Now that Jan and I are empty nesters again, and Jan had 100 hours of vacation he needed to use or loose before the end of the year, we decided to take a little trip to Sedona. It is so beautiful there. Once again I kept thinking of the Primary song "I'm so glad that I live in this beautiful world, Heavenly Father created for me."
I do not have a good picture of my most favorite thing. (Well my second most favorite thing. I do have a picture of my favorite thing. He is right there!) They have mountains shaped like everything - Snoopy, coffee pots, bells, and so on. But they have one formation named "Madonna and Child" and it really looks like the world's largest nativity. I love nativities, and I loved that rock formation the most.

Random Thoughts on YW High Adventure

1. North Stake Rocks

2. We have the most awesome Young Women in our ward. They are brave and kind and smart and funny!

3. People come from all over the world to see something I live only a half day's drive away from. Can't believe I had never been to Arches National Park before. It was amazing. I kept thinking about the Primary song, "I'm so glad that I live in this beautiful world, Heavenly Father created for me."

4. I love going places with my hubby. He is the BEST travel partner!

5. Even though our young women repelled, went white water rafting and hiked - going down the twisty slide at the Rec Center was as high adventure as the Bishop and I get!

Celebrating 30

Got to love Rosemary's

And an evening at Aria

There is nothing better than being all together. (I know I am a terrible photographer.) Notice how most of the attention is on Janson. That is just how it goes. How could it not?

When we are together we love to eat. Here we are celebrating Kyle's graduation a little early. See how much he is enjoying it. My photography skills once again.

I love being all together. And I really love hearing my family sing together. Even if it is Guitar Hero. They are pretty talented. Even though Brittany is not in this picture, don't let that fool you. She plays one mean guitar. Like I said - all talented.

My family - heaven.

I Love Temple Square

Kevin and Katy enjoy the Asian nativity

So grateful we got the chance to hear the Mormon Tabernacle Choir and David Archuleta. Such a wonderful feeling in that place!

Birthday Toes

On Kaitlyn's birthday she and I got pedicures. It was only the 2nd pedicure I've had in my life, so it was fun for me even though it wasn't my birthday! I love that she was home for her birthday because of the holidays.

Christmas Morning

Is this what Christmas morning looked like at your house? I am so glad as a group they can figure all those crazy cords out!

I Love My Job

I really do work hard at my little "job" and it can be very frustrating, but this little sweetie made my day. I just sold it for $400.00. So keep your eyes peeled for another copy all you guys and girls. I think I can credit it to my "years" of book experience starting to pay off, or maybe to blessings following me home from the temple. But I spotted this at a sale on the way home from the temple. The books had obviously been previously picked over by a book dealer, but this gem caught my eye, and I decided to risk $1 that it was worth something. When I got home I was surprised to find out it is very sought after, out of print, coming of age book from the 60's. Women around the age of 57 have very fond memories of it. And now there is a woman of 48 who has very fond memories of it too. :)
