Back to Blogging

Wow how quickly time passes...I cant believe it has been over 2 years since I last blogged. Seems like as soon as Face book was invented it just kind of took over and blogging was kind of set on the back burner. Although I do enjoy Facebook it is hard to actually express a lot of detail and feeling into a post. I remember when I started this blog, my good friend Trina talked me into it, and as I have been able to read back over her posts the last few days I see what a great gift she has left for us and her childen, and everyone whos life she touched. Life truly is a vapor, how quickly it changes...

Since my last post we have made some progress on out trip. On Tuesday we left Grand Junction and went to Denver to see Dale and Chantel. On our way we stopped and visited "Buffalo Bills Grave" it wasn't the most exciting thing but it was fun to drive up there and learn a little about his history. We only were able to spend the night at Dale and Chantel's and then left the next morning to Wichita. We were able to sit in a good meeting Wednesday. Wednesday night we stayed with Bro. Brent and Sis. Sherry Mc Graw. It was nice to be able to see people we haven't seen in so many years. The last time we were in Wichita was when Alyssa and Shelbi were both babies so I would guess it to be about 13 or 14 years ago. On Thursday morning we made our way to Oklahoma, and have been staying with Lee and Cherrie the last couple days. Kayla has really enjoyed Stormie and they have had a lot of fun doing things together. Tonight the older girls will be going to their first "Oklahoma Young Kids Event" I hope they aren't overwhelmed and are able to have a good time. I am looking forward to meeting tomorrow in Dawson. My sister and her family will be coming to see me tomorrow, and maybe spend a day or so. It will be nice to get to visit with her too. Here are some more pictures I have taken since we left Grand Junction.

Feeling Blessed

So far our trip has been very good and very up lifting. We have been able to sit in some really good meetings and visit with many different brethren. Some we have never really visited with and some we have been friends with for years. We had a really good visit with Bro. Randy and Sis. Cherrie and Hayden enjoyed playing with Melanie and I had to take some pictures of them.

After our visit with Randy and Cherrie we had decided to head to Denver and possibly spend the weekend there, but it seemed like the Lord had other plans. Sean started feeling like maybe his work wasn't done quite yet in this part, and we had decided that we would possibly stay a few more days when he got a call from his niece Bobby, and she was wanting to talk with him. She gave her hand to be baptized and the next day we all went down to the river. It was cold the river was frozen and they had to break the ice.

Well that night we all headed to the church for the ordinance supper and Shelbi gave her hand to be baptized, so we decided to postpone the supper and go to the Orchard Mesa church to fill the baptistery, and as we were waiting Charity gave her hand to her dad.

Here are some photos of Charity getting baptized.

Our Journey Begins

We have begun our month long journey of traveling and so far things are going pretty good. We haven't had very many educational experiences so far, but have been able to sit in some good meetings and visit with several different brethren. We have had some good conversations and have been able to visit on good things. Right now we are in Colorado and have really enjoyed our stay so far. Sean called meeting last night and again tonight. I will try to take some pictures as we go along and keep you posted as to where we are.

New Year, New Changes

Life here has been busy with so many new changes this New Year, changes that have been good but also have been an adjustment in many ways. We have decided to home school all of our children and have just started getting a daily routine down.We are trying to focus on values, and teaching skills that I feel will be of value to them in the future. Also Sean recently quit his job, and is taking some time off so we can do some traveling to different assemblies. We have been able to go to some assemblies close by, but are planning a much larger trip here in the near future. Along the way we would also like to find some educational places to visit to help incorporate in the children's home schooling. I will try to post about the different places we visit, but as you all know I'm not very consistent with posting so don't hold your breath. LOL

Happy Birthday Adrianna!

Well another year has come and gone and I can't believe my little girl is already 8! This year we celebrated Adrianna's birthday at Papa's Pizza with Roman. We celebrated
a few days before her birthday,which I enjoy, because her birthday is actually the same day as mine so when we celebrate it early it really makes the day all her own.

Adrianna is such a sweet girl. She is usually pretty quite and sometimes shy around people she doesn't know very well, but this past year I have noticed her breaking out of her shell a little more. She is staring to show her personality and creativity more and more. For example this summer we had a yard sale, and she dressed up in a bright pink wig and dress and stood on the street corner with a sign yelling and dancing around to try to lure people to the sale. Adrianna and Kayla have a very close bond, and really enjoy one another. I think that Kayla's outgoing personality has helped Adrianna become more outgoing. I love the bond that they share, and hope that they can always have a close relationship.

When I was pregnant with Hayden Adrianna had been my baby for 4 years, and she was kind of sad the she had to give up that roll. But when Hayden was born and was a boy, I told her that he was the new baby, but she would always be my baby girl. To this day she is still happy to be called my baby girl, and I tell her "You will always be my baby girl!"

This is a group photo of all the younger kids.
