Journaling...

Well, I have been sick and busy... I am way behind in posts... so I am just going to ramble... bare with me!

The FIRST thing I want to say is...

Derek and Brittany had their one year anniversary on Sunday!!!! Congrats to both of you! WE love our Brittany so very very much!!!! We are so very grateful to have her in our family FOR. EVER.

Dallin was given the "Coach's Award" at the soccer banquet last week! The coach had a lot of nice things to say about him! And, as you can see.... he also earned the "Scholar Athlete" award again! He hates posing for pictures... he hates that I blog, LOLAnd, here are a few pics from his meet last week. The weather was gorgeous so Brad and I rented a cart and watched...
Brad got out of the cart to watch... so I snagged the driver's seat and got to drive the cart! Isn't he cute??? Love that man! He still makes my heart go pitter patter! ________________________________________________________________

Yesterday Brad and I got to go take the YSA's (Young Single Adults) to the temple to clean it.... it was a very nice experience!

It is Spring Break and Thursday we are going to Utah to visit my parents and see all our children! It will be fun to all be together again! I am REALLY looking forward to it! I wish we ALL lived closer! Families are the BEST!

Hey Shaila,

I just used that tacky craft glue for those Book of Mormons. Those little ones are so handy for 72 hr. kits and your purse. Seriously.

Good luck and have fun :)

Lisa Loo said...

I think your family should be in a beauty pageant or something! At least a Colgate commercial! hee-hee Glad your life is going well--my daughter Kelly really likes to play golf--its her thing she does with her Dad that no one else wants to do.I only go along if they promise me I get to drive the cart. I'm bossy that way.

Joneel said...
