What our FHE taught me

On Sunday I woke up and I really thought that it was going to be a great Sunday! We all had our church clothes laid out and then the unexpected (well, I should have expected it) happened. Gino asked if he’d like me to keep Ella with him. This threw me! THREW ME for . . . → Read More: What our FHE taught me

The Next American Idol

I personally think that the American Idol thing is stupid. A few really good singers have come from it, but a lot of them I really can’t stand, or I think they SUCK. So not nice, I know.

We did watch the first episode this season, because there was nothing else on, and we . . . → Read More: The Next American Idol

Our trip in pictures and some words

Our trip to California was quick. We had such a fun time though. Friday after Jayden got out of school we took off and got into town around 8:30pm. At 10:30 pm we went to the movies with my sister while my mom watched the kids. We saw that 3D My Bloody Valentine movie . . . → Read More: Our trip in pictures and some words

Marriage, Life, Church – UGH it’s all hard

Life isn’t always perfect. Pictures don’t always show the whole story. My smile sometimes is a lie. I don’t know what is going on right now, but I feel like things are falling apart. It’s funny, because in the primary class that I teach we were talking about apostasy and restoration. There was a . . . → Read More: Marriage, Life, Church – UGH it’s all hard

Mixed Feelings

I’m having mixed feelings about my new calling to Primary. I think that the calling is great and I know that I could learn a lot from who I’d be teaching with, but I just think that the timing is not right. I don’t feel comfortable leaving Gino to attend Sunday school by himself. . . . → Read More: Mixed Feelings

I KNEW it was gonna happen – JUST KNEW IT!

So, I’ve been waiting ever so patiently for Ella to turn 18 months so I could shove her into Nursery and actually listen during Sunday School & Relief Society. I’ve always had this feeling inside that right when she was ready to go to Nursery that I’d get a calling that would be in . . . → Read More: I KNEW it was gonna happen – JUST KNEW IT!


Nothing’s better than celebrating the New Year with your family. Prior years we’ve gone out and let me tell you from experience, IT FEELS SO MUCH BETTER TO START THE NEW YEARS WITHOUT A HANGOVER!!!

We rang in the year with movies, Uno and a little Welch’s Grape Bubbly. It was the perfect night! . . . → Read More: HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!!

Early Christmas for Ella – Elmo’s World

Yesterday I took the entire day to myself. I shopped, spent time with one of my sisters (one of the daughters of my dad… the 16 year old) and got my teeth cleaned, checked in w/my orthodontist…. it was a BUSY BUSY day. I absolutely loved every single second that I was out of . . . → Read More: Early Christmas for Ella – Elmo’s World

Jayden never ceases to make me laugh!

Jayden told Gino last night that Spiderman wasn’t real. Personally, I think this shocked Gino. Not because Jayden doesn’t think he’s real, but because Gino does think Spiderman is real. Conversation proceeded like this:

Gino: Just because you can’t see something doesn’t mean it isn’t real, Jayden.

Jayden: I know, Dad. I believe in . . . → Read More: Jayden never ceases to make me laugh!

Snow Day Pictures

Yesterday we took the kids up to my Grandparent’s property to get some pictures of them in the snow – so I could finally make some Christmas cards and get them sent off before Christmas. I can’t believe how fast this holiday is creeping up on us. Next week is Christmas and I’m really . . . → Read More: Snow Day Pictures
