We are MOVING...


We are really excited to be moving our family south to warmer weather. Justin received a great job opportunity in a suburb of Phoenix. We are thrilled with this new adventure. The kids are excited that Mom and Dad may buy a house with a pool.

An Empire State of Mind..

Justin and I had a great trip visiting Scott and Dayana in New York. They live in a great apartment in midtown and we were spoiled staying with them. We ate Crumbs cupcakes, dined at NYC restaurants, shopped til we dropped, and ate NY pizza again! We forgot how much we missed some of these things - all of these things. A great vacation without the kids.

It is HERE!

Well...the program my brothers, Ryan and Scott, have been working on has LAUNCHED! It is awesome and you can tell they have worked really hard on it. Sign up - it is FREE. It is such a fun and great way to help you learn a language. Check it out!

Also, here is an instructional video for it...

Madison's Campaign

Madison decided on her own that she wanted to run for student body. Three kids would be chosen by writing an essay in each grade at her Elementary school. The Fourth Grader would be secretary, The Fifth Grader the Vice President and the Sixth Grader the President.

Madison worked hard on her essay and was ecstatic when it was chosen. She ran against two other kids in the Fourth Grade to be the student body secretary.

She campaigned hard. She talked to kids all week, handing out stickers and putting up posters. She worked hard on a speech and delivered her speech to her entire student body.

Her hard work paid off and SHE WON!

She is the FIRST Secretary to be at her elementary school.

Today was a special day today for Andrew. In our church, turning 12 for boys is a BIG deal. Since this is our only and oldest boy - it was a VERY special day. Andrew received the priesthood. In order to receive the priesthood, he needs to be living specific standards and continue to live those standards.

He is growing up fast. I am proud of him for making correct choices and being such a good kid. We are truly blessed to have him in our family. He is kind, thoughtful, funny, dedicated, and smart.

His two little sisters love him to pieces and are lucky to have a kind BIG brother like Andrew. He looks after them and takes good care of them.

He is social and loves to hang with his buddies. Everyone loves Andrew and wants to be his friend because he is such a kind and thoughtful friend.

We are so blessed to have him in our family and be our son.

I hope he continues to be the kind of boy that he is as he progresses to becoming a man.

Of course, as his Mom, I would like to pause time and keep him from growing up.

12 year old PARTY

Andrew wanted to have a few buddies over and go go-carting and mini golfing for his birthday party. After then fun, the boys came back to the house and had a night of playing the Wii and staying up late. He had a great time and it is wonderful that he has a good group of boys to hang out with.
