Kickball... Barefoot

Tonight we were invited to play kickball with the Hixons for FHE.  It was a fun time playing ball and having a BBQ.  The Hixons, Stecks, Foote's and Dan and Mike Hixon family were there also.

Gilbert temple cultural celebration

II will post more pictures next week after we have our performance but I wanted to add a couple pictures taken from our all day Saturday practice.  The youth are practicing a cultural celebration that the prophet is coming to watch.  It is very exciting and I'm so glad I am a Captain so that I get to be there to watch it live.  There were about 12,700 youth at the practice on Saturday.  It was a long day but the pay off is going to be awesome.  

Look who's 18!

Jess turned 18 on February 19th.  Hard to believe I have 3 adult children.   
Jess is such a sweetheart.  She's unique and funny and so sweet.  I'm so lucky to be her mom and so lucky to call her my daughter. 

Love you beatiful girl! 

One lil' Oakley

I'm such a slacker posting.   
Oakley turned 1 years old on February 18th.  We had such a fun time with her at her party.  Here are a few pictures I took for her birthday. 

She's pretty stinkin cute right?  
Happy Birthday Miss Oakley!  
I love you!

The end of 2013

It's the last day of 2013.  Hasn't been a bad year but hadn't been a great year either.  I'm ready for 2014.  I'm ready for new challenges and ready to learn knew things.   I'm just gonna make the best of whatever comes my way.  

Im happy to be moving into the new year with the one person who has never left my side and supports me in everything I do.  

Wooohoooo! Bring on the new year.

Final game

Wyatt had his final freshman game Wednesday night.  He did AWESOME!   It's nice when I hear people around me saying "that was a great pass" when Wyatt would throw the ball.   The final score was 47-0.  We have had a few tough loses this season but I believe we won 7 games and lost 4.   Great season for this boy.

Happy 22

I guess I should mention that on September 21st Thayne and I celebrated our 22nd anniversary.  We had a great day and went to dinner in Scottsdale at Morton's the steakhouse.   It was a great evening and I felt blessed to have such a handsome date.

Music to my ears

The only time my piano gets played is when these 2 girls come over.  

Football in my life

I haven't blogged a lot about football this season.  Let's be honest, I haven't blogged a lot about anything.  
Wyatt has been playing Quarterback for his freshman team.  Kinda shocking to us since he had played safety for the past 5 years.   It's fun watching him play a new position.  He loves it and he is doing great, especially since it's his first year playing this position.  Last weeks game was his best game yet.  His team won 48-0.  He played the whole game except the last 3 minutes.  He ran the ball for an extra 2 points and ran the ball for a touchdown as quarterback.  He was apart of every touchdown in the game.  This was one proud mama.  Wyatt was one happy boy after the game.  Wyatt had a lot of support from family too.  Thaynes parents, Sam, Zach, Oakley, Jess and myself were great cheerleaders.   
Let's home tomorrow's game and Thursday game goes well too.  

Oakley was there in team colors cheering for her uncle Wyatt 

As you can see Wyatt had a big smile after the game.  Oakley was screaming because she got too close to her great grandpa Dennis.  (She cries when she gets too close to Dennis and Dianne) we are working in that. 

And how about these dog tags I made myself to wear to the games.
