First of all this picture is for Travis. We had a converstation about Kawai.....he said I couldn't see Kong Mountian unless I was on a boat,.......but this is the Kong Mountian we saw. It's in the middle of the mountian, and you can see Kongs pointy head....it was a shot that was in the middle remake in the 70's......
I loved my sister trip....Love love loved it.
My heart is still hurting for Hilary and her sweet boy Carter....we believe in prayers, so please still pray for him.
I love Roger so much....he works so hard. To hard. I am trying to get my Christmas up.....but not doing a good job of it. Im struggling ......with this pain a lot lately.

Facebook vs Blogging.


I am going to blog.......I see that hardly anyone does this anymore and I know the reason.......FACEBOOK.

It is so much easier......and takes just a tiny bit of time.Maybe one day, humans wont even interact with each other......
Anyway, just look for us on facebook.
Anyway, as always, I have random pictures and video's....Im trying to clean up my camera.

Christmas in Washington........BURRRR




Been a long time since I posted anything........


I have some random pictures........I have never posted.....Christmas up in Snowy Washugal was a blast.........It snowed all most the whole time. Travis and Megan did their share of helping neighbors get last minute items because they had 4 wheel drive. The kids were so cute and we had a great great time. But man did it snow.

Thanksgiving in Utah and the after math.......











First of all, before Thanksgiving, Travis and Megan came down to Turlock. It was a short short visit, but we had fun. Then they went to Megans family and we took off for SLC. That was a short

short visit too. It was nice to be able to see all 4 of my kids in a one week period. So Very Nice.........I miss when I can't have all my kids together.




(Ivy playing in the yard)








One day was spent in the hospital with my mom. She's going down hill fast.....I felt extreme guilt and remorse I am not there more for her........but that's a whole blog in my head.






Baby Ryder was blessed and Chris did a fine job with that







"Sister's.......Sister's.....there were never more devoted Sisters"

Just a few radom pictures.

Last Week of October...

So we had Halloween. It wasn't the best Halloween this year.......I had plans of going to our ward party and stuff, but we were just kinda off. Roger and I kinda dressed up......We went as Sarah Palin and a moose........

We went around Trick or Treating with Mandy's kids.....


Then two days later, it was Tony and Traci's birthday. Tony had the flu so that was bad.


I think I am going to stop working at Wood Design and get a job at Olde Thyme Pasties as a cake decorator. Dang Im good.........Just look at the masterpiece I made Tony and Traci (and we sang to Great Grandma too)....For those who don't know, Tony and Traci share a birthday. I told someone the other day they were my twins.

udate.....


I had to take the off work today to input all the prop 8 stuff our ward has done. (I am taking a break to write this) It seems this is just about all we talk about around here. Everyone but me has stood on a corner with a sign, I just have been chosen to do the computer stuff.
I am so tired of this election......and the prop 8 stuff. It sure is intresting to see how people choose things in life.
My mom got moved and I am so grateful for my sister's for taking care of that. I hope she will be happy in the new place. She can see the Jordan Temple from her bedroom and is real close. They got her recommend for her before she moved. I don't think she can do any temple work, but Nancy can take her over there, and she can do the prayer roll, and maybe eat something....not excalty temple work ( if it was, I would already be a real angel)....
We still have our doors open at work......not to busy but we are still open. I did book a get a way for Roger and I in Tahoe on Nov 6th......he really needs it.

I got a sweet package today from Megan and the kids........
I love being a Mimi.......
Well gots to get back to the prop 8 stuff........love you all
