Great Talks!

As I sit here preparing my lesson for tomorrow night I thought I should share with you a great web site with wonderful talks/discussions. It is listed on my side bar under favorite web sites, it is "Book of Mormon Talks". When you get to this website just scroll down to Book of Mormon Episodes, then click on which chapters you would like to study. Then on the right hand side, click on "Listen to this Episode". It is so good to listen to, they are about 30 min each and oh so worth the time!! I love to take notes in my scriptures as they discuss... There are other wonderful talks and things on this web site too! ENJOY!
Isn't this just the cutest little picture ever?! (NO, I do not know her... wish I did!)

Today is SHAILA'S BIRTHDAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

HaPpY BiRtHDaY ShAILa!!!!!!!!!!!!

Today is the day.....just a mere XX number of years ago (yes -I know exactly how many years ago... but value my life.. so I wont post it-But hey, I am always up for a BRIBE to leak out certain information) A little girl was born to James and Shari Measles in Plano Texas! (I think it was Plano, it was in Texas) She was the joy of her parents life (sorry Dirk...just keeping it real-I am sure when Shaila sees this ..she will edit it anyway) Shaila continues to bring much joy to SO many......She is a dear friend to sooooo many! Always serving, always teaching, always going about emulating the Savior!
Join with me in Wishing Shaila HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!!!!

RaNdOm StUfF

I have to say… work is totally cramping my style! I used to have sooooooooooooooooo much more time! So, this post is going to be totally random but I HAVE to catch up in this journal of mine!

Chad has had his stitches for over two weeks so I think I will take them out today! Tomorrow is his 14th Birthday!! HAPPY BIRTHDAY Sweet CHAD!!! I can’t believe you are going to be 14! That means that now you can go to all the church dances! Wow… Crazy! He is finally growing. When Brad took him to get stitches the Dr. did an X-ray and the Dr. pointed out all the “tares” in his bones to Brad and told him that he is really going thru a growth spurt! He is 5'4" at the moment, looking me square in the eye. His favorite meal is ribs, so.... tomorrow night, ribs it is!

My friend went up to Utah for the BYU Homecoming game and I bummed a ride up with her. It was nice to go up and see my mom and some of my older kids. Derek and Brittany came down from Rexburg too! The game wasn't so good... but we still had a blast! I forgot my camera on the trip! :( But here is a pic from the game that Devin took of us girls... it is the only pic we took at the game! I love these girls, we are so blessed to have them in our family!!!

And, here are a few pics that Brittany took in my mom's front room... as Britt says, the boys always make time to bond, aka hurt each other lovingly! HAHAHA, she is SO right!

Cute Britt with Derek...

Here is a pic of Brad and Chad cleaning the spider webs... i debated on leaving them since it was SO close to Halloween! Thank you, Chadman!


A family in our ward had a great Halloween party! This is Chad's scout leader that drove the tractor and took us all on a hay ride!

Chad and some friends sitting on the hay, ready to go!

Chad and his scout leader. He is Johnny Depp from the new movie coming out March 5, 2010, Alice in Wonderland.

Okay, all caught up.... gotta go work on my lesson for tomorrow night...
