Updated Fam Pics!

I decided to (finally!) update some family pics…some of them are from our vacation to the OBX this summer and some are just around the house. I can’t possibly add them all; there’s literally hundreds. We take tons of pics of the kids. So these ones are some of my faves. Hope you enjoy!

Paul decided to start up a new blog for tech stuff, so now he has the family one and the tech one. So here’s another shameless plug for his new blog if you’re a computer geek or techy person!

New Blog Site!

I signed up to get on a LDS/Mormon blog site and thought I’d share it! It’s for LDS-themed blogs or general/political/whatever else blogs written by LDS members. It’s really neat to see others’ POV and what they think of life in these latter days.

I sat down to write something and just couldn’t find anything to say. I’ve done the bit of politics (that’s as far as I get!), the animal posts (LOVE animals), the kid post (Halloween)…. So I guess I’ll just ramble for a bit. Hope you don’t get bored! I love this season. I love the holidays coming up; decorating, something to look forward to,...

Another sister sent me a great email she thought would make a good post, and I agreed. This is a story about a dog who was condemned to die but was rescued. He was born with 2 good legs (his back 2) and a bad front leg that was amputated. The original owners didn’t think the dog could survive,  so they were going to...

Palin vs. the “Can’t Do All” Dems

So now in the political realm there’s a big stink about Sarah Palin running because she has kids. Since when did the Democrats think women should stay at home all the time??  They’ve held a strong point of women being able to work and raise a family. It’s typically Repubs that have the conservative view of women staying home with kids. One example they’re...

My sister sent me an email and I decided to post about it. But, after some thought, I decided to make it a permanent page. That way we could help more animals. Please go check it out (on the left)!

So Frustrated at Technorati!

Technorati is supposed to be one of the best blog sites. They have thousands of blogs and bloggers talking about everything under the sun and more. The quality of most of the blogs is high and the people are interesting and, in most cases, friendly. And I’d like to get my blog noticed on their site more. BUT THEY WON’T UPDATE MY BLOG!! I...

“By Their Fruits…”

This is one of the great things about my church. Salt Lake is already sending help in to the Gulf Coast, even before the hurricane hits. Most people don’t know it because the church doesn’t announce it to the public. We don’t say, “Hey, look at us! We’re sending trucks in!” It happens quietly….without fanfare….without bragging rights.  Throughout the year, members are asked to...
