Dave and I both have access to internet at work and on our 'smart' phones so we have not had the internet in our home, which is my excuse for not blogging. Well we recently decided it was time to get the access at home :) Now I have no excuse so here is a picture update of the past few months...

I am so thankful for the Holy Ghost! I feel the help and guidance I need daily with my husband, my children and with my work. I needed to say this publicly and since it has been so long since I posted here I thought this would be grounds for a new post! I don't know what I'd be without God, Jesus Christ and the Holy Ghost in my life. I am so thankful for the guidance and support I feel on a daily basis from them.
I have recently been reading a book called 'the infinite atonement' by Tad Callister. I highly recommend it! I am grateful for the love of the Godhead. Yesterday I read a passage about how it took faith for Jesus Christ to complete the atonement, just like it takes faith for us to believe and trust it. I am thankful for my faith and know that God watches over me and ALL of His children.
These are some of my thoughts today... maybe they can help someone else, if not atleast they help me :)
peace and love,

The minister who married us talked about how it was a privilege for her because we are choosing each other again and now we know the grass is not greener over there.
She said this is true love :)
We got matching t-shirts.

(Please excuse my sorry attempt to rhyme, this is my heart feelings...))
As I sit here in church I feel him close to me.
So close in fact I have to dismiss myself to get some tissues.
I stepped outside to release some emotions...
I think of so many people on this day who are missing their fathers.
Some miss a father they never had.
Some miss a father they once called dad.
Some miss a father far greater than the rest,
they may feel they have wronged Him and he has left.
I KNOW our father in heaven loves each of us and Never leaves us!
I am thankful for this day, though it may be hard,
to reflect on the men who some discard.
I am thankful for the name my father left me
and for the man he showed faithfully.
He was not perfect by any means
but he was perfect just for me.
I love you dad!
Love your forever Roo!

Saint George, Dixie, St. Geezy, San Jorge, St. G, and The George,
I could die a happy woman any day now just because I am in your presence.
I AM HOME!
I love your freaking hot summer!
I love running the trails. Especially the ones by the river with the lizards, jack rabbits, ants, birds, and all the other little unseen creatures. I even saw a deer one day and a duck another.
I love it here!
I love to see the lit up "D" at night and the lights at the temple as well as the "DIXIE" lit up.
I feel at welcome and at peace in this place!
I LOVE ALL of my family here.
I love my cousins, who are some of my best friends.
I love that my kids get to have their cousins be some of their best friends.
I love to feel the sweat dripping down my back and get into a car that is blazing hot, because I have missed you town!
I like that I am now closer to all of my Cedar City friends.
I love that I will get to be here for Holidays and not have to travel to get here.
I have my dream job here working in a private practice.
I have fulfilled a life dream and now get to be here living this dream.
I hope this lasts forever!
I love my family!
I love the support and love I feel here.
The history. My history!
I love the mountains, red, black and gray.
I love the camping, the outdoors, the nature that is so beautiful.
Thank you for being here and being a strong home for me to come to.
