Saturday we went with Steve and Heather and their kids to the arboretum by Superior. It was a BEAUTIFUL place!! We took a little day hike and had a ton of fun!!

Decorating for Christmas!!

Friday we spent a lot of the day decorating our home for Christmas. This year we got a new tree which we decorated very nice and our old tree we'll put in our family room and will be our "family tree". On it we will put all the fun ornaments and the cards and pictures we get from all our family and friends!! We had a blast getting things done!! (Maqueca, you'd be proud of me with the decorations...)


We had a great thanksgiving weekend!! We spent a lot of time with family and friends. We started on Wednesday night with a Wii party at our house. On Thursday we went to the Sanders' home and had a wonderful time with everyone. We had lots of food, pies and even a snow ball fight!! Of course, we can't forget the 4 hrs. of soccer, which were a TON of fun!!! It was a fun day!!! Here are pics Jace took of the kids and the fun.

Our Beading Ceremony

Last night was our beading ceremony. To you non-scouters, after completing our ticket items (goals) for our Wood Badge course, we receive a special recognition, "the beads", which has an awesome significance to those who have attended the course. I guess you all have to go so you know what that means :) I LOVE WB!!!
Jace, Rick, Brian and I were all beaded!!
THANKS to all that were there last night!! It was awesome!!


Thursday was my birthday!! I turned 21 with 11 years experience :)
It was an AWESOME day!! I got lots of calls, emails, facebook wall notes and texts from all of you great friends and family!! I love you all!!
I spend my day SHOOTING!! We went to do sporting clays at Usery Pass shooting range with some sweet shotguns. After 150 rounds I was pretty sore... I still have a bruise on my shoulder... When the kids got out of school we went to dinner and then to do some more shooting. We went to caswells shooting range and shot some .40 cal and .22!! IT WAS A BLAST!!!!!!!!!!

Halloween 2008!!!

Halloween was a lot of fun! Anna and Phyna came trick-or-treating with us! We got TONS of candy! (too much...)
The kids were so tired at the end, that when we got home and the sugar high wore out they all fell asleep together watching a movie!!

Summer 2008

Here are a few pics of our summer FUN! We did a lot this summer! It went by really fast! (some days not fast enough with the kids though...)

Scout Camp 2008

Jace is the YM president in our ward. He had his scout camp from July 7-12th. He had a great time, especially doing wilderness survival. They went to Knoll Lake, about 1 1/2 hrs. NE of Payson, AZ.

Wood Badge!

I had the amazing opportunity to go to Wood Badge, which is, for the non-scouters, a 2 three day weekends leadership training for scout leaders. It was one of the most amazing experiences I have ever had. And it was a BLAST!!! I went April 17-19 and May 8-10, 2008.
