Up and running.

I have missed checking your blogs and updating mine. Thanks Jessie for letting everyone know that I had a broken computer. I didn't get a new one yet. Just fix the old one for now.

Carlie cheered at the last OHS basketball game for the year.

Carlie with the Orem High Tiger. Thursday was the last game of the season and we played Mountain View. We lost. It was a way fun game to go to. A lot of energy. Carlie was way sad they were to preform half time but the music didn't work. They worked hard on their dance. Cheer has been a lot of fun for Carlie. I am glad that she got to do it.

Some of my way cute Nieces and Nephew

February13th and 14th we went to Arizona to get together with my brothers and sisters and our spouses for a short reunion. Debbie and Mark have a house boat on Roosevelt Lake. We had a blast! We eat good food and played some fun games. We talked about old times and what a great childhood we had. We laughed and we cried. We are a very close family and love each other and very supporting of each other. We have had some scary times with my bother Sam and his health. We feel so blessed to have him. His wife Carolyn is a blessing to us and Sam. We are fasting for Sam this week-end. Hang in there Sam you are a fighter. I love my brothers and Sisters so much. They are strong in the faith. Families are the best! Lets do this again soon.

This is Jessie blogging for my mom. Her computer has been dying for quite some time now, and took its last breath a couple days ago. She has someone scheduled to come and try and fix it today, but I'm not sure he'll have much success. Please leave comments telling my mom how much you love and miss her blogging and that she needs to invest in a new computer so she'll be able to give more regular updates.

Thank you.

A tribute to my Mother. She is the BEST!!

My mother was buried in Arizona
My mom passed away 13 years ago Febuary 9th. Oh how I miss her. The Lord gave me the best mother for me. She was a good a faithful women. She love the Lord and love to serve him. She taught her children the Gospel of Jesus Christ. She loved my dad very much and served him well. This quote by President David O. Mckay was on her program for her Funeral.

"Motherhood is the greatest potential influence either of good or ill in human life. She who paints a masterpiece or writes a book that will influence millions deserves the admiration of mankind; but she who rears successfully a family of healthy, beautiful sons and daughters, whose influence will be felt throughout generations to come....deserves the highest honor that a man can give, and the choicest blessings of God."

My mothers Patriarchal Blessing says " I bless you with the privilege of raising them (her children) up according to the pattern of the gospel, teaching them first to have faith in God, in His teachings, principles, and commandments, and if you will do this with a love of the gospel in your heart I promise you that you shall never lose your children in the faith."

Wow what a blessing. She was wonderful at teaching us. To this day we are all faithful in the Gospel. Thank you mom for your love and devotion to your children, husband and the Lord.

Older kids still like to play dress-up.

Lydia, Rylie and McCall

Yesterday these boys in our ward were walking around and one was in this costume. These two boys are brothers. So Cute. Even older boys like to still play dress up. My girls thought is was cool so they wanted to get pictures with them. It was a girl's night last night. Rylie, Lydia, and McCall just hung out, playing dress-ups and doing girls things. Carlie also had her girl friends over to for a girl's night. It was fun.

Geoff got his wisdom teeth out.

He loves getting his picture taken.

Geoff got his wisdom teeth out yesterday. Dr Crawford from our old ward did a great job. Geoff was so cute. When he was done and still a little under, he was saying the cutest things to me. He was holding my hand and telling me how much he loves me and what a good mom I am. He said " I am such a great example to him as the kind of woman he wants to marry." Sweet huh. Then he woke up. I sure he doesn't remember. Oh well I do.

Geoff plays Ice Hockey?

I don't think that Geoff has ever been ice skating until about 3 or 4 weeks ago. How cute is he. He has a group of friends that play on a hockey team and Geoff joined. The name of the team is the "Iceholes." Boys will be boys. I think this is a good thing and Geoff enjoys it. The games are played late at night. Last nights game was at 9:45. I can handle that, but it is usually later then that. Geoff is number 99 and he did pretty good. Way to go Geoff!
