We also took a day and want to Navuoo and Carthage Jail. That was so awesome. The spirit was so strong and warm while there. I didn't want to leave the area at all. We were able to attend the Temple there. We had a wonderful week, in fact I wish that it would have been longer so that we could spend more time with the people that took great care of Travis. Not only have you touched Travis' (Elder Grondel) life you have touched our life forever.
As you will see by the video above we had a great morning with our Halloween party. We made spiders out of cookies, we made cupcakes and licked our fingers a lot. We played some old fashion Halloween games. We danced and wrapped each other as mummies. We were so tired by the time the pizza came, we were ready for our naps. I sure do Love my kids and I sure hope that they know that.

Elder Grondel has arrived safe and sound. It is nice to have him back with the family. I really enjoy listening to his stories. I also enjoyed the many friends and family members that came to welcome him home last Friday evening.
Travis will be speaking in church this Sunday August 24 at 11:00 am. Our Chapel is the Treeline and Sahara Chapel. Any questions on how to get there call me at home.
Thanks again for all the Love and Support from everyone.

Well this is prettier in Picture than it was in live wedding. I wish that I could do cakes like I used to do, with less flaws. I think that I wanted to make things so perfect that I just messed up on things.
My Nephew Jared got married this weekend He was married in the Las Vegas Temple to Eleesha Mandeles. It was a great day.

Tonight at work I thought about me and the life that I have had. I am so happy that I was raised in the Gospel of Jesus Christ. It is wonderful to see all the people that have taught me and loved me. I came home and was reading Kims blog and have to say a big Sorry cause she has mood swings just like her mom. Its not something I am proud of but all the same we have them and all that you can do is let us speak our peace and then we are over them. Heaven help the ones that have to listen to us speak. My poor Dave, has listened way to many times. But he is still here.
I also thought about the good times we have had. What made me get on this way of thinking was coming home from the 2nd ball game of the night, and we were talking about Blayne and how his older brother Travis put ice down his diaper one time. It was so funny. I realized that I didn't hold on to my babies enough when they were so little and fun. I miss those times now. Now that they are all grown, sometimes I feel like I am not needed anymore cause they all can take care of themselves. I would just love to hold each one of my children a little more. Donny won't let me rock him to sleep anymore, that stopped at 3 dang it. So to all you young mothers take a little more time with your little ones they grow up to fast. I love to go down the good memory lane but that makes me cry sometimes. I am a happy girl (old lady really) when our family all gets together. Dave and I just love it when everyone comes home for dinner.
I don't know why these thoughts came about I guess working in the temple will do that to you sometimes, you just start thinking about something and because it is so quite while you work your thoughts can take you. I Love being a Mom and a Grandma. Heavenly Father has blessed me with so much.

We appreciate the time we were able to spend with Jim and Laura and their Children. They were so very much fun to be with. They just made us feel so welcome, we didn't want to leave.
We are home now and Baseball is in full swing with both of the Boys. Blayne and Donny have started. So if you can't find me at home I am at either one of two fields. LVHS or Freedom Park. On Saturdays you will find me watching Jaden play Soccer.
I think that this blog thing will be fun when I learn how to really do it.
