Merry Christmas

If this isn't classic Santa and me picture I don't know what is. We've had lots of fun with G'ma & G'pa Smith, Aunt Liz, Uncle Andrew, Abby baby, and Uncle Dave! Here's a few more just for laughs! Ty and Abby did have a few mins when they liked each other.... and thanks to our wonderful in house Santa

House Update

Well Folks the long awaited day has finally arrived and it looks like the Bank has accepted our buyer's offer and everything should be signed and finished by the 30th. Thank you for all your prayers and thoughts as we've been making this long journey. It's hard to me to let go. I love this house. There are many memories, many friends and family that have walked through our halls, many happy days. I hope the family that moves in will love it as much as we have. Hopefully they'll be nice... sorry guys if they're not we haven't even met them. We'll miss all our wonderful neighbors and friends. Thank you for helping us make our house our home for the past 2 years. If you're ever out in Sacramento give us a call!


You can count on children to teach us how thin the veil really is. This last week Brian has had alot of migraines and so on Thursday he called a friend from our old ward to come give him a blessing. Ty was still awake by this time and so of course I stood holding him trying to keep him quiet. Knowing something was going on and I'm sure probably feeling the Spirit he was uncharacteristically quiet. After it Brian's blessing was over and Derek had another neighbor had left Ty climbed up on the same chair and sat calling "Dad" Brian was already close by and so asked him what he needed. Ty took Brian's hands and put them on his head, closed his eyes, and folded his arms and said Amen. Brian and I joined him in saying Amen. It amazes me how much he picks up and understands. Somedays I wish he spoke a little more clear so that I could understand all he knows, but for now I'm content with Dad, hands, and Amen
