The Gospel is Perfect! People are not.

The title pretty much sums up how I have been feeling for a while now.

Forgive my complaints, but I just have a hard time when I show up late to a Christmas Party because of work, only to find my husband and child sitting alone at a table in the middle of the crowded room, with about 6 chairs to spare.

Maybe this should bug me as much as it does, but I know everyone hates to feel like the outcast.

I know that in new wards everyone is shy, everyone stuggles with being out of their comfort zone, getting to know new people, getting the hang of new callings, etc. But I feel like I have put myself out there a lot; trying to be a part of the ward, helping out sisters when they ask, being cheerful and talkative...

And this was a burn.

So here goes another attempt at blogging.

Well a lot of this is I am not ready to go to bed yet and I need to do something to distract myself from the downstairs neighbors most recent habit of turning on there bass any time AFTER 10:00. So here it goes.

Sadie is turning 2 this month! I can't even believe it. She is talking so much and is such a little lady now. She is so polite and is getting better at telling us what she wants and is really really good at saying thank you for everything we give her! She says so many words now. My little baby isn't such a baby anymore!
Right now she is battling a cold. We are hoping it won't turn into a 3rd battle with pneumonia.
My heart melts when she comes up to me for kisses and says, "I yub you mommy!"

Corey is starting school in a few weeks and will be working hard in the Creative Track at BYU!!! A very competitive program that we were very blessed he got into!!! We are very excited for all the hard work he will be putting into this program and hope that it will lead to great things in the future! If the stars align hopefully next summer we will be off somewhere for an internship.

My life just got interesting! I will be taking over a lot of responsibilities at work which is going to be good, but scary. I am excited for the new challenges and being able to grow in my company. I am seriously blessed to work here! My co-workers are fabulous and they truly care about people. They have helped me SO much with juggling work and motherhood!

I recently started voice lessons which I am SO EXCITED about!!! I finally decided to do something that makes me really happy! I am hoping to audition for some musicals this next year and I can't wait!!! First up: A Christmas Carol at the Hale Center Theatre in Orem!!! We shall see!!!!

Well that is it for now. I really am going to try to keep up with blogging. I need to as a diary for me and my family.

until next time

And here we are again

I have tried several times to start a new post, and I don't know where to start! A lot has happened in the last few months and not knowing how to make blogger all cool just exhausts me. So "here we are again!"

Here are some things we have been up to:


She is 19 months, her vocabulary is growing everyday! and I mean GROWING! She learns so much so fast!

She is in the 60th percentile for weight, and 85th percentile for height

February and the beginning of March were hard for her. She had pneumonia for the second time, was put on ammoxicillin, had a reaction to that and broke out in hives, was put on a steroid, then got sick again because of her weakened immune system.

She graduated from going to Relief Society and Sunday School with mom, to nursery and is doing really well!


Has peed in the potty twice

Loves to count and color

Isn't fond of standing in the corner

Loves to visit her Papa and Nana, and Grandma and Grandpa

Will have a very interesting phone conversation with you using only the words "yeah and hi"


Working at Xactware as a technical support rep.

Taking classes on Tues, Wed. and Thurs


Working very hard to get through school

Having a great time playing with his cute little girl

Hannah Liz:

Working at First Choice Home Health and Hospice, in the billing dept.

Working M,W,F and gets to play with her sweet baby girl the rest of the time

Looking in to vocal lessons and is VERY excited about that!

Exploring different hobbies that may expand her horizons!

All in all we are doing very well! We are feeling very blessed to be where we are. Heavenly Father has been watching over us through our every trial and I am so grateful for his love!

I am hoping to update a lot more often. Hope all is well with everyone!
