Baptism of a GREAT kid!!

On January 5th we were able to witness the baptism of Jack Gaylor.  Jack has been one of JT's best friends forever.  He is such a great kid!!  He has spent a lot of time in our home and we have enjoyed every minute of it. Through the years we have had multiple gospel discussions and we were thrilled when we heared that he was serious about getting baptized.  

I belong to the church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints.
I know who I am.  I know Gods plan.  I'll follow him in faith.
I believe in the Savior, Jesus Christ.  I'll honor his name.
I'll do what is right.  I'll follow his light.  His truth I will proclaim.
I have always loved this song - its message has become sweeter to me as I have watched this young man enter the waters of baptism.  So grateful for the gospel in my life and for Jackie Boy !!!!

Engagement Pictures!!!

I love this photo!!!!!! My sister took these pictures- she always does an amazing job and has great ideas - Thanks A.Tiff!!!  
We are super excited and counting down the days for these two to get married.  They are a ton of fun to be around and we are excited to see what the future holds for them.  It is amazing to me how LOVE gets you through anything and everything.  These two have had a bit of "bad luck" lately (wrecking/totaling a vehicle then purchasing another one to have it break down and cost more money to fix then what he paid for it) but together they will get through.  It is part of life and the beauty of marriage:) I remember being newly married, feeling so poor and wondering how we would make it.  I look back now and realize we didn't have it so bad:)

2012 School Christmas Programs!

I wanted to have these pictures on my blog of the three little guys, they are not so little any more. I really enjoyed this years School Christmas Program.  The kids did such a great job with their parts and singing.  I love music and I love to hear children sing.  I am especially proud of Nate.  With his processing issues, he seems to be a word or two behind when he sings. It is the cutest thing to watch and I just hope he keeps singing his little heart out!!!!

Arizona Cardinals!!

Tim - on the JUMBO Tron at University of Phoenix Stadium!!!
On a previous post I comment on how Tim was selected as "coach of the week" by the Arizona Cardinals.  They invited all the coaches that were selected and the high school teams that won their state championships to be part of the Cardinals pre-game show.  It was a high light for Tim this football season!!!!

Our FAVORITE Santa!!!

We love Santa - he's the best!!  He comes and pays our family a visit every year.  It is a very selfless thing this Santa does because we know how busy he is at Christmas time.  We LOVE Brother Bigler and his family!!  In the Fall months if you were to see Brother Bigler at church, one might say "Oh My - that man needs a hair cut"!! Well, we all know that he is getting ready to spread Christmas Cheer the whole month of December.  He has been playing the role of Santa for years.  He's is not like most Santa's when you sit on his knee.  He talks to you about the love of a family, missions, baptisms, temple weddings and spiritual things!!!!  We love you Brother Bigler -oops - SANTA

Engaged on November 24, 2012

Well these two love birds are tying the knot!!!!  We were on our traditional tree cutting trip when JT proposed to Lexie. It was a beautiful day and we were having a great time together as a family.  Aunt Tiff and I went on a little 4-wheeler ride and put a sign that said "Lexie with you marry me" and a big red bow around a pine tree.  The ring was hanging from a ribbon by the sign.  JT and Lexie then went on a 4-wheeler ride and ran into it:)  SHE SAID YES!!!  We are so pleased with who he has chosen to spend forever with.  Lexie is an amazing young lady, extremely sweet and it is as if we have known her forever.  We are looking forward to their wedding  March 9, 2013!!!!
