Another Profound Thought

     I heard this one the other day and I thought wow.......how true!

     "I have continued in certain relationships far to long because I was afraid of hurting someone".

Happy Birthday

Happy Birthday to my daddy who is in Heaven!
He would have been 84 yrs. young today!
Love you daddy!

Happy Thanksgiving

Remember your Blessings!
Remember to Always be Thanksful!

    I am most thankful for my family and my love of the gospel!  These are the gems of my earthly life and there is not a day that goes by that I do not tell my Father in heaven how grateful I am for these special blessings!  Both my family and my church keep me in check! 

Even when I feel alone at times ....I know in my heart... that I am not! 


Elf on the Shelf

On my last trip to San Francisco we took a day trip over the Golden Gate Bridge into Muir Woods and then onto Sausalito.  It was so much fun!
Sausalito has all of these amazing little shops and that is where I found this adorable Elf on the Shelf LED Candle.  I have been waiting ever since I bought him to bring him out for the holiday season!
How cute is he!
Tomorrow he will make his big debut in the Macy's Day Parade!

It's That Time Again...YIPPEE

     I get so excited when I get the email for the upcoming Family History Expo!

     It gives all of us genealogists time to save the date, gather our thoughts and to start writing up a list of all my questions!

     It seems like there is always so much new information that I learn at the Expo.

Please visit here for all the highlights of the two day conference and to see if there is one coming to your area:

I love this store!
It's a darn shame that we still don't have one here in Southern Utah!
But......I am in Vegas so often that it just gives me one more reason to go MORE often!
I got nearly all of the Christmas shopping done for the grandkidos this past weekend and I simply love this store.  It has everything and I think it makes me feel like a kid again..... even if it's just for a little while...........

Thank you Toys "R" Us!

Breaking Dawn Part 2

So......back to Vegas I went again this weekend to share seeing the final movie with my daughter Mackenzie!
We had the best day ever!  Lunch at California Pizza Kitchen, some awesome shopping at Town Center and then of course off to watch the movie!
The movie was AWESOME!
Yes....I am Twilight Nut!
We are sad to see it all end!

Halloween 2012

It was a very "Tangled" Halloween for the Vegas kids this year!
Wynter loves this movie and can sing every song from it!


I discovered this little treat in Vegas this past weekend and let me just say that it is the perfect combination of mint and milk chocolate!  I found it at Walgrens so ....on my way home yesterday I stopped at a local Utah Walgrens and it was nowhere to be found! 
sad face.....

November 9th, 1974

How can it be?
It has been 38 years ago today that one of the very most important men in my life passed from this earth!
I remember the exact events of this day like it was ten minutes ago.
So surreal............

You would think that .........this day might just pass by like any other after all these years.....but it never has!
It hit me at 7:45AM when I looked at the calendar and of course I was sad at first, cause I miss him so much!  I miss both my grandpa Frank and grandma Opal!  I spent a great deal of my childhood with them and they were wonderful examples for me.
I simply do not know where the years have gone!

I do know of God's plan and that we will be together again......
and.....what a reunion it will be!
Love you both so much!

Northern Weekend

This past weekend I headed north to be with the family for my grandson Luke's baptism.
In our church... which is The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, we are baptized as members of the church when we turn 8 years of age.  We are blessed as newborns... which means we are given a blessing by a male member of our family or a close friend.
It was such a special time and so many of our family members came to share our special day with us and to enjoy a yummy brunch afterwards!
Our sweet Lukas, Henli and Layni sang a beautiful song called "Gethsemane".
To hear this beautiful song go here:
Nana and her Little Lukie Bear!
My beautiful and precious daughters!
Our little Claire Bear.
Barry video taping our fun afternoon at the park!
My girls are so silly and so full of life!  I so love being with them and enjoying in their youth!

Our adorable Wynter Brooke...
The girls and their dad Barry!
Everyone wanted to climb this tree....except me!
Our little monkey... Lukas.
Our Sweet Pea.......River Rae!

My Blessings!
