Please forgive me, for I have NOT blogged. Everytime I think about posting I unthink it just as fast. I miss you all and I am going to attempt to catch you up on the last few weeks, here it goes..... We have been busy with school, school, school, and school. My normal everyday errands take up a little time as well. Alan and I had a date night and went to the big ol' town of Ogden. We went to the comedy club called Wiseguys...the morning show host for the the Eagle owns it and he invited us out to see Joel McHale, The Soup guy..... he was really funny, more so in person.... I guess because it was his own material and not written out and trying to be funny!! I really enjoyed it! We took a little family drive to Thanksgiving point to have some one on one time with the animals.....As you can imagine, the Longhorn really bonded with our family....being from Texas and all! We went to a Monster Truck Rally...... LOUD...... the kids LOVED it. Gymnastics college style was so much fun. It was held at the U and hosted U of U, SUU, and Utah State. We have two new members of our family, Max and Shadow. They are MICE, yes I said MICE. The kids earned money and this is what they deciced on. I will never say, You can buy whatever you want, again!!! You will notice a picture of Landon on the phone... he was talking to AUSTIN! (Just had to throw that in there) The mountains are of course still beautiful with lots of snow on top. Thankfully the snow is melting and the sun is shining. We are bustin' out the flip flops and shorts..... the kids are all over the place riding their bikes. One Saturday night we decided to take a drive to Bountiful to see the Temple at night.... it's beautiful. We were amazed on the drive up all the deer in the residential areas..... a hunters dream. On our way back we stopped at the most amazing frozen custard joint called, and I know this is why it's so good, Nielson's Frozen Yogurt...... YUMMY!

Just when we thought the snow was gone, we woke up to 11" on Sunday morning. As we drove our .25 miles to our church building (which starts at 9 am now, whoo hoo) and realized how deep it was we were very happy to have my 4 WD..... oh she is so good to me...... we were a little surprised to see half of the hand full of ppl that made it to church stuck in the parking lot....... wouldn't ya think a 4WD would be a must here? And they say TEXANS don't know snow...... well, maybe not but we sure are prepared! You can acually see some of Lauren's car in the pics but that wasn't the case earlier that morning. The Bishop cancelled the last 2 hours of church and requested that we go home, grab our shovels, and help clear the sidewalks and driveways for those who may have trouble....... the kids were excited to grab their shovels and help out around the area clearing sidewalks and of course playing in it! And Roxy was right in the middle of it!

Alan and I were blessed to attend the viewing of our beloved prophet, Gordon B. Hinckley. No words can describe the peace that was felt. It was truly a spiritual experience. President Hinckley will be missed but his legacy will live in all who loved him.
