Life has sure changed since the last post I made nearly two years ago....
Long story short....
We have moved to Utah to own and operate a Sears Hometown store. It has been a fun adventure but we sure do miss seeing our older kids on a regular basis. But they have all come to visit and we have enjoyed that more then you can imagine. Rich is really loving the slower paced life and being his own boss. It has relieved a lot of stress. With our move, I was unable to continue doing what I was doing with the Exchange students so this change was a big adjustment for me with a lot more time on my hands. But its been a good thing!
Here is an update on the family....
Brittnee and James gave us a sweet little Grand son in September
James deployed recently, so this will be a hard year for their little family.
Austin is doing very well on his mission and will be home at the end of October
Hayden and Charlotte are giving us a brand new Grand Daughter in August. We could not be more thrilled!
Quade had adjusted well to his new surroundings. He continues to love life to the fullest... his obsession these days is Garth Brooks.
He got to attend his concert a few months ago and was in heaven!!! Now he thinks hes a Cowboy....
Taylor and Colten are just enjoying spending time together and as much of it as possible in the great outdoors.
Noah and Sawyer are about to turn 16! This has been an exciting year for them. We have spent many hours teaching them to drive, going to high school football games and now going to high school baseball games. Its bitter sweet to have our last two in high school but we will enjoy every minute of this fun little, final ride!
so.....that's what you've missed!

I know, I know...its been forever since I have posted but my pictures are too big to load and I don't want to re size all of them :( So I will give you the verbal update and hope to post pictures later....
so lets see...
here is the condensed version
October- Rich and I went to Ireland! beautiful, the boys finished up football unscathed
November- Rich and I went to Philadelphia for a Regional coordinators meeting, Then Taylor, Julian and I went to California with the exchange students for a long weekend. Next up was Rocky Point Mexico with the family for Thanksgiving. A great Quade story to tell from that trip (when i post the pictures)
December- We stayed home this month and enjoyed having Joe From Germany come to visit us for Christmas and a package arrived every day of December with chocolate inside from Julian's family!
Hayden and Charlotte moved back to the mountain and we are very happy to have them back!
January- Rich and I went to Dallas for a Regional EF meeting. Taylor, Julian, Rich and I went to Hawaii for an exchange student trip.
February- Noah had made the 5th and 6th grade basketball team (Sawyer did not try out) and they did really well. They won almost all of their games and he was a high scorer for the team and the leading rebounder. Expecting to see good things from this kid in sports in the future. My Mom and I went on a cruise to the Bahamas and I was able to see Felix from Germany while we were in Miami. :)
March- Julian is doing track, Taylor is planning her future ( a mission ?) and Noah made the Jr high track team (but hes only in 6th grade) he will be running long distance like Hayden did. We all went to the valley and attended our Niece Adrienne's wedding which was super fun to have everyone together in one place! And just last week Rich was called to the high council so that should be an interesting new adventure.
and that.....is your update
