More of Disneyland

Funny things you see while waiting in line for the rides at Disneyland.

The boys came today and we had a great time playing in the park. The weather is great and we are loving the food. Tower of Terror is my favorite but poor Carlie she hates it and was a great sport and went on with us. She cried. I don't think I will talk her into it again. We all love the Toy Story Mania.

Our baby can now drive!

Posted by PicasaToday Rylie took here test for her learners permit. She passed. She has NEVER driven a car before. I don't know why but all my other kids had driven before they got their permit at least in a parking lot or something. So I did let her drive some of the way to school. We have a lot of practicing in a parking lot! She did great.

My cute kids.

When the kids were little Scott's mom had a beach house in San Diego. We would have a blast going to visit and play at the beach. What a blessing my children have been to Scott and I. Each one of them have became a wonderful teenager or young adult.

Jessie is marriage and getting ready to have her first baby. She is a gifted in many areas of her life. She graduated for BYU, she is a successful photographer. Wonderful wife and awesome big sister.

Geoff has grown to be a great young man. Everyone that knows him loves him. In fact yesterday a old friend of his from High School that (I didn't know) asked me if I was Geoff's mom and then told me what a great person he is and that he was always kind to them and others. Geoff is a hard worker and does summer sales for APX.

Carlie is 16 and loving it. She cheers for OHS and keeps her grades up. She is always the life of the party and the party is always at my house. Everyone loves her and she keeps us laughing.

Rylie is busy, busy, busy, with school and cheer also. She is a hard worker and keeps her grades up. Loves to hang out with her friends and is a kind person. She is sweet.

My kids have been a real blessing to us. We as their parent have truly benefited by being their parents. So many lessions to learn.

Baby bump.

Is she the cutest pregant girl in the world!!  I think she is so beautiful. What a blessing it is to watch your daughter get ready to become a mother.

Old family picture 1960

I believe it was taken in 1960, the year Judy was born. It was taken at Christmas time because were are all wearing matching pj's that my mother made us. Every year we got new pj's on Christmas Eve and opened them as a gift. Why Judy is not in the picture, I do not know. It maybe that she was already in bed as she would have been about ten months old at the time. I think I am about two and a half years old. I am the blond little girl. When I look at this picture I think Carlie looks at lot like me. I am the second to the youngest.

My trip to AZ to see my family.

This is my brother Sam. I miss him.We went to lunch with the girls.  We went to visit my mother. I really miss her.
My brother Joe and his two kids Laruen and Aaron.

I have the most amazing family. We have so much to be thankful for. We all love the Lord and His Gospel. We are always there for each other. We have had some tought things to go through as a family. I thank my Heavenly Father for such a blessing to be a part of such a wonderful family. Were I have learned so much.
