I know it's been forever since I last posted...life happens and I forget how to post pictures, so I think writing is lame. I have to at least update my background once in awhile. I add to change it for the next major holiday....Memorial Day/Flag Day/4th of July. I have come to realize that these are my favorite holidays. I am Proud to be a citizen of the United States of America and I'm proud to have had family serve in the military. Grateful for my Grandpa who fought during WWII on the beaches in Normandy, my dad active in the Air Force for 20 years, and have had 2 of my brothers serve in the armed forces, even having to go across seas. The United States of America is for freedom to all...but not without a price. I hope everyone will remember this great land of which most of us live and think about how much this country is worth to you. I say, "It's Priceless."

For all those who love the Primary Program at church you will love this one! I had a few kids reluctant to go up at first, but they all made it there. Ryan was fun to watch being a sunbeam and not knowing much of the singing words. He had fun moving his hands around. Emma did great in reading her part. Many told Adam afterwards they were surprised she could read so well for her age. Come on people she is in 1st grade! Ammon would be a stinker by saying his part super fast and then walk away before he was really done. Jocelyn bore her testimony of the Savior and then had another speaking part. Ryan gets up and of course puts his mouth on the microphone...says his little part and then yells out "I love you Mom!" All I can say was too cute!!! It was so funny and I laughed quietly so hard that I was crying. He was so proud of his part, his chance to speak into the microphone, his minute of glory, and he yelled "I love you Mom!" when he was done. Reminded me of an athlete after his game winning act. What a sweetheart!

I haven't posted anything for a long time, sorry! I'll have to post pictures later but it's been great this last while!! Mother's Day was fun even though I miss the party with the ladies in Idaho/Washington. Adam BBQ'd salmon and I got some fun things about what my kids think of their Mom....have it all on video!! We had a great trip to So. California but weather was not as warm as expected!!! We loved seeing Lindsey and Paul for a day, our friends from the Antelope Valley, watching our favorite Dodgers team, and seeing the parks at Disney and Knott's Berry Farm!!! Can't believe how scared our kids got and yet they still enjoyed it!! I think we don't have much hope for Emma. We scared her right away. She was hard at times but hope Christmas will be better with cousins to coax her instead of her parents!!
Can't forget our exciting weekend when we got back and celebrated Ammon's baptism and birthday the same day!! We had to fill the font ourselves so we just moved the BBQ at the church's pavilion!! We had some family come to celebrate and appreciate all those who came!!! Emma's birthday was hurried...she always get the raw end of the deal being the next day...but none the less we had church, a quick birthday party, and then went for a drive with my brother and wife's family to the Redwoods and California Coast. Beautiful and close. We had their daughter, Carlee, in our car on the way home...she felt sick..and puked in our van!!! Not pleasant, but we sent Jocelyn with them the next day to spend about a month in Boise!!
The Lakers are coming together and we hope to see them get that Championship on Sunday!!

First of all, yesterday while we walking in to church, Jocelyn was asked by her friend, Summer Stone, if she would sing with her in Sacrament Mtg. She said she would. Her and Summer sang "We'll bring the world His Truth" acapella. I couldn't believe it...she hates to sing in front of an audience. Even when it's Mother's Day, Father's Day, etc. and the whole Primary is up there she will not go up. She did so good, though I couldn't really see her behind the podium, and she sang softly. She was very embarrassed and she didn't want to ever sing again. Adam and I were so impressed and glad she did that!
Then this morning when I got up to get Jonah out of the crib he was naked!! He had put all his blankets and such over the railing, took off his pajamas, and even his full diaper! Luckily, he was just wet and there was no other accidents that I could feel!! I couldn't believe my little boy!! I was surprised to see him and he was so happy! :)
