It's been a long, long time....

I have ignored this blog thingy now long enough! It's time to make a come back! I just really, really love the quickness of Facebook. This blog thingy is way to much work for me and I feel like no one ever reads my blog. However, I just recently have had a few people question me on my blog, and why it hasn't been updated! Wow....people do care and love me! haha! Maybe that's going to far. In celebration of a come back I thought I'd post some pictures from the past! This is me and my sister Shera when we were "younger!"

Yes....I was chunky, okay!

The Church and ABC news.

A friend of mine posted this on her blog and I watched it today. I was very impressed with it. It's a good clip to refer to friends about our temples, and Prop 8.

Canby Gator Grinder - Our "Sprint" Triathlon

This is my girl friend Sara Wilcox, who happened to kick my butt in the event! She's an awesome athlete who has worked really hard training this year. Last year I kicked her butt, however, she had just had a baby a few months prior. So I don't know if that counts! ha ha!
This is Dave and I with our brother-in-law, Troy Bolinger, who also participated this year. Dave had just come in off the finish line....that's why he looks more tired and less happy then me and Troy. We had been in for about an hour before Dave.

Dave is "THE MAN!" He took 2nd place in his age division this year. It is very competitive in this age bracket, so it's a big accomplishment!

These pictures are all out of order, cause I'm not the best blogger out there. I have yet to learn how to download my pictures so that they are uploaded in the right order. However, this is me and Dave...."team blue." haha...we didn't plan that!

Dave crossing the finish line.

Dave coming in off the bike ride.

Not a great picture of's the transition between the swim and the bike.

Me in the pool, before starting the race. Look! I'm smiling and not puking! We had great weather, and lots of fun with our friends. However, I think it's the last year for me! I get too much anxiety before's just not worth it! I'm glad it's over with!

FHE on Service

We had a fun FHE tonight on service. We read the parable of the spoon, which in it's shortened form goes something like this:

A man asked an angel to show him what true happiness was. The angel showed him a building with two rooms in it. When the door opened in the first room, people were sitting around a large circled table with a large pot of stew in the middle. They all had long sticks stuck to their arms and at the end or the long stick was a spoon. They were miserable, because no matter how hard they tried to eat the stew, the spoon couldn't reach their mouth and they were starving.

In the second room, the same thing, however, the people were all well fed and very happy. This is because the people had figured out that to eat they had to feed the person across the table from them the stew. They were happy because they had learned to give of themselves and serve others, and in return they too were served.

We decided to give this a try with our chocolate pudding dessert! It was really fun!

Brynn also made "Mr. Secret Service Man," out of a spoon. He will secretly be going around our house causing all kinds of secret service to happen this week. Where he will show up, nobody knows?

Avory's Dance Team Debut

Avory's first dance team debut was at a OC girl's basketball game. She was nervous, but did a great job for her first time. She's hard to pick out while they are in their big group, but when they spread out you can see her better. She had one little slip up where she popped up early, but it just helps us to see her better! haha!

Her official competition was today at the High School They had their costumes on and looked great! I didn't get it on my digital camera this time, so next comp. I'll video it again and put it on here. The competitions are really fun to go to! We had lots of fun cheering for her. We embarrassed her as we screamed..."We love you Avory!" She didn't acknowledge us, so we all waved at her. haha! She gave a timid wave back. I love being a mom for these reasons!
