2 Years ago...

Two years ago I had about 75 people crammed into our home for the blessing our little man I can't believe how fast it's gone. Two years ago tomorrow, the 25th Brian, Ty and I were sealed for Time and All Eternity in the Salt Lake Temple. Two years ago was one of the happiest days of my life. I am so grateful for the knowledge that I have of the Gospel of Jesus Christ, for the blessings of the Temple, for the that special moment when the vail was thin and things were very clear, and that I can be with my family for Eternity. Two years down- eternity to go... life is good!

just another reason

This is just another reason why I love Brian- Here I am in UT working and I get this email picture- I couldn't stop laughing, Hopefully Kelly will think it's just as funny as I did- doubt it though... hee hee

"Butterfinger by mid-night tomorrow or the Tiger gets it"

look what I found

It's amazing what you can find on the internet these days.... He hasn't let me take a pix in his uniform so I found one- or two
Chef DuMars cooking white roux
Look how cute he is-(he's the one on the far right in the top pix and on the bottom also) and for the record doing amazingly well- top of his class! He stressed and stressed over a mid-term last week and was so excited when he got a 85/86 WAY TO GO BABE We're so proud of you!

Unita Photo Trip

So since I was out in Utah anyway... a friend from BYU-Photo and I planned, well actually she did all the planning I just tagged along for a camping photo trip to the Unitas. We were up by Mirror Lake for those who are familiar with the area. It was beautiful, cold, windy, relaxing, rejuvenating, and it reminded me of why I love photography... which some days unfortunately is needed. Hope you enjoy the little piece of Heaven that I found this past week...

Is it really so bad...

Is it really so bad for me to want a clean house? Brian and I just finished having a "discussion" (and yes I should probably cool off before writing and venting but I threw my probably should have's out the window this morning...) so we were having a discussion about my views on cleaning. I HATE cooking in a dirty kitchen, I despise walking into a kitchen with dishes overflowing, and I really can't sit in a room next to the kitchen that has dishes overflowing- on a side not for some reason it does not bother me if it is someone else's home, but where I reside. It also seems to get worse when there are things around me that I can not change- teenagers that look at me like I am the scum of the earth for asking them if they've done their chores, 18 year olds that I have to walk on egg shells around, and a two year old who has to do EVERYTHING and be into everything. I know I have a need to control something and that happens to be the cleanliness of where I am. So is it really so bad if I like to have the dishes done around lunch AND dinner? ( I mean there are 10 of us around if everyone has breakfast, there are at least 7 bowls and 8 plates and probably 15 cups by the time lunch is done...)
