Well September has been a VERY busy month for us. We have been looking for a house for some time, we put A LOT of thought and prayer into what we were going to do, where we were going to live, etc. After much looking we found a home that we liked in Bountiful, we decided to offer on it and see what would happen, well the owners took our offer so it looks like we will be moving (big smile on my face) We bought a home in Bountiful on the East bench. We will be moving in October, so as you can tell, our house is filled with boxes in every room. The week after we found out we were moving Brett took a little trip to mexico to go Tarpin fishing, check out his blog for the story and to see some AMAZING photo's. (www.flytowater.com) We have had such a fun summer the only downside to it was we lost one incredible dog, Quigley passed away on Thursday Sept 24. He was a good buddy and we will miss him tons. I will post pictures of our home as soon as we move into it.

Nieces and Nephews

So some people always ask me why doesn't Brett take pictures of people? My response is he takes my picture all the time. Well Brett did me a HUGE favor and took some pictures of all of my nieces and nephews together for my mom for her birthday. He even took a couple of single ones. I really like the way that they turned out. So here are the pictures for you to see. There were some who just wanted to play in the dirt and some who got scrapes but all in all they turned out good.
The Kids......



Here is a little bit of what we have been up to lately. About 2 weeks ago I went to Disneyland with my Niece Sarah and my mom. We left on a Tuesday and drove down and came back on the following Sunday. Sarah is FINALLY tall enough to ride all the "big" kid rides. She had a blast. I think her favorite ride was a toss up between Tower of Terror, Splash Mountain and Soaring Over California. I did take lots of pictures and I will post them at a later time. Thanks again Jimmy and Marla for letting me take her we had a BLAST!
