What happens when Taylor comes Home

Little by little the dock gets some much needed work. Brian Melick and Taylor worked so hard for two days on the dock. My father was out there as much as he could as well... Although the pictures do not show it, the support for the roofing is now ready... YAY, its been a long time coming...

Dinner with the Jazzies

Since Taylor was home for a few days the Jacobsens invited us out to the Ranch for an amazing dinner. They had homemade salsa waiting for us and the best pork tacos... We had a great time as we always do...

Taylor and Jessica were having a good time making fun of the "Utah Poof". No offense to those who have the poof but we are kinda biased on that subject and the look. Over the summer we saw many commercials for the "bump it", which is something to put under the hair to give it the poof... Tonight they made their own...

The Guitar Cat!!!

My Uncle Brian and his wife Mauri came to Orlando for a visit a few weeks back. He won a trip for work and they were able to spend a few days out with us and then up by some of the attractions. The time with them was fun and the jam sessions were loud. With my mom at the drums, my father on the base, tanner on the guitar and Brian being Brian, it was a great show, everytime they performed. I will try and post a video on here as well... but it did not work... so I will try at another time...

Happy Birthday Tina!!

A few weeks back we had a fun little neighborhood gathering to celebrate Christina's birthday. She had to work on Tuesday so we celebrated it a day early on Monday night... Our neighbors the Sniders, Pratts and 2 Munns family came over and we just had a grand time. My dads brother Brian was in town and he also put on a performance for them... Pictures below... So fun to live by such great people...



So I mentioned above that we celebrated Christina's birthday on Monday because she had to work on Tuesday, her birthday.... She was not feeling good in the morning and came home sick from work... she had a sore throat and a body ache. We called a member of our ward is a nurse practitioner and works at the hospital and she told us to go check it out. She mentioned that some of her symptoms could be related to swine flu... My mom was going to take her to the ER but then she realized that with her immune system being weak she should not go, so guess who that left ME... I ended up going to the hospital with her, we spend 5 hours in the waiting room and another with the doctor. They took a swab for a test for strep and it came back positive. She got a shot of Penicillin and we got home around midnight. I was glad that she was able to get treated and I got to study while waiting, but it was a long next day. Not a fun way to Celebrate your birthday...

Yearbook Yourself

I am in love with this yearbook yourself stuff... Here are a few of the ones that I thought were funny... I just shot a picture tonight with the webcam...


Murder Mystery

I was invited over to a friends birthday party this past Saturday and it was pretty fun. It was a murder mystery at the Juice Joint... Sam was suppose to come with me but he ended up having to work so I had to go all alone. I was nervous, I am not the type of person that likes these kinds of things but I have to say, I did have a good time. I did not get into it as much as some but at least I got out of my comfort zone and tried...
LOVELY DRESS that I got at Goodwill for seven bucks...

Nathan the birthday boy and I ended up being lovers, which was kinda ackward... but it was ok...
THE GIRLS!!!
THE BOYS- President Pratt won for the best dressed...

Happy Birthday Nathan

Trip To Dallas

A week ago I was in Dallas for a very special occasion. My dear friend Eden went through the temple... I met her almost three years ago while serving as a missionary in Texas. It has been a long haul since then but what a glorious occasion it was... I forgot to bring my camera so I dont have too many pictures and some of the ones that I do have did not turn out that great but here are a few pictures of the weekend...
Here are somethings that I got to do as well but do not have pictures:
-Visit with Britney Becker and have breakfast at Sonic... I had the sunshine smootie, YUM! While there I see a car pull up and I recongnized Sister Vanderpool, a women in that ward... It was coeincidence because the last time I ate at that sonic was with her... Random.
-I also got to visit two wonderful family... Amanda Robertson and her boys Leisin and Kasel... and also Andre and Lori Otano... What fun...
-I got to see so many wonderful people (Huntsman's, Brassfields, Janis's, Titensors and more)at the temple as well as at church... including Sister Stevens (whom I served with in Coppell, where we met Eden)






Last but not least was Sunday in Weatherford... So in September of 2007 I got called to my last area on my mission in Weatherford and Mineral Wells, Texas... What a great place. It was so different then my previous two area and there was one small challenge. They had been made a stake the year before but did not have a building big enough to be their stake center... But then something terrible happened, or so it seemed. Their church building burnt down. The members had to drive an hour and a half or more to attend church... Missionary work was hard but we worked harder... We held a special sacrament meeting in the home of a member in Mineral Wells (a smaller town) west of Weatherford. Sundays were a day of driving or riding for us. I came to love the people and their dedication. They were humble and showed so much compassion for eachother. Although their church burning down was sad, it was a blessing in disquise. When they became a state they were told by Salt Lake that it would take 8 years to build a new church (Stakecenter) in that area, but with the burning of their own church, they were able to be looked at to have a building be built sooner. So this weekend while I was there was the dedication or actually their stake conference in the new building, I think the dedication is this weekend. It was so neat to have an oppurtunity to be there and celebrate in their joy. I was able to see some wonderful people whom I love. My mission President and his wife were also there and spoke and it was fun to see them. They had been down south of the mission over the weekend and had it not been for the stake conference I would have not been able to see them. They did not know that I was there and afterwords walked up and suprised them. It was super fun... I love love them... So below are pictures of their new building... YAY Posted by Picasa
