For those who have not heard yet...Aaron and Kim broke off their engagement. Its sad for Aaron. But he seems to be ok. I know that it was hard for him at Danny's wedding and reception, but he is strong and will make it through it. Some may ask why? Well who really knows, I know that our faith has some to do with it. And that I want our children to remain active and faithful to what they know to be true. When you date someone outside your faith then its a good chance you will marry someone outside your faith. Kim is a good person. I hope they both continue to do good. Hope they both find someone they will love forever.

Taking Pictures

Yesterday we took pictures of Haylee and she is quite the ham. She usually smiles alll the time but on occasion she decides to be a little difficult. The did not want to sit on Rachels back. Didn't want any of that. We went to the Dallas Temple for Danny and Melissa's wedding and the Nativity was set up there. Rachel took the opportunity to show her. Her eyes lite up when seh told me about Baby Jesus. It is always good to have a picture of your family in front of the temple. I love my family we are lucky to have them.

I've been on vacation this last week, and now I must go back this morning. Now working in a travel related industry Weather plays a big part. All last week it was warm and nice outside. On Sunday the temp drops it drizzles and is quite cold. I'm OK with the cold. But please no other wet stuff. I don't want to stay late today and if it get really nasty we all get to. I love the wintry type weather but not when it effects grumpy travelers. We had a great weekend, our dinner group was fun. Its always great to enjoy others company, and great food. Its fun to get to know others that we might not always get the chance to. Thanks to great people who put it all together. I know it takes alot. Thanks again.

Wishful Wednesday

Things I wish for:
A healthy sister
My mom to join the church
Brittany's Mom to get better
Sibling's to always get along
Kids to be happy
Aaron to be active in the church
Young Women to realize their potential
Less stress
Not to feel sad
More time with Meridith


This year Thanksgiving was nice. A few glitches along the way.
My sister was back in the hospital again. She has had a rough year. She had her leg amputated in the summer and has not recovered from it. For those who know her is is rather large, not as large as she has been but is still large. She is not able to sit up on her own really because she has not in months. So back to thanksgiving. My mom has come for several years, but this year she did not. Partly due to the fact of sibling and nieces. But it turned out really nice, (dinner anyway) I worked that morning from 430a-930a so the family started dinner. Rick, Rachel, and Brittany cooked. When I came home I made the fruit salad and potato salad. Kim brought brownies which were great. After dinner the guys watched the football game and so did Kim. Rachel went to take a nap and after Brittany rested she came in and we did crafts, then in a bit Rachel and Kim came in as well.
Dinner was great, Brittany made the dressing for the first time ever. She did a great job.
