"Women Who Know"
I am serving as Relief Society President in our ward, and I love it!
I never thought you would hear me say that
after my first go around at it.
( Perhaps I am a little older? ). While Dave is out making a difference -- I can do the same things here at home. My calling takes up the many hours that I am home by myself, and it keeps me "trying" to do the things I know to be right.
What more could I ask for at this time in my life?

Our Family in Ixtapa, Mexico

The Happy, Happy, Hoopers

I bet you can't guess what one of Grandma Shauna's
gifts was to all of the kids for Christmas?
Yup, bright golf shirts for our family Christmas picture.
We had the wonderful opportunity of going with all of my family to Ixtapa, Mexico this past December during Christmas break. It was so good to be with ALL of the family; to laugh, talk, drink "Mormon" Pina Coladas, and look back on fun times we've had growing up.
Thanks Dad and Marilyn for this great vacation and memory!!


"""Our 7 Loves"
This picture was taken on the
Salt Lake Temple grounds
June 15, 2007, the day that Angela and Aaron were married
and sealed in the temple.
This is one of my favorite pictures!
Does anyone think that Collin ( sitting on Grandpa Dave's lap)
looks anything like his Grandpa Dave and Uncle Aaron?


"Three of My Best Friends"
I love my girls!
This was taken at Angela and Aaron's Wedding Reception.


We're Proud To Be An American!

Saturday, January 3, 2007, Dave was promoted to the rank of General. It was a day steeped with tradition. I am so proud of both a husband and son who serve their country, and my other kids that honor our country and the beautiful American Flag. This was a day to remember.
