Another one!

We just had another very small earthquake! That is more in this month then in years here! What is going on I thought by leaving the west we were getting away from all that mess! I will update as soon as we know more about it, maybe we (Darren, Ben & Nick) are feeling things but I do not think so!

We were right it was a small earthquake at 4:11pm eastern time 16.2 miles SE of us 3.1 miles below the earths surface. It was rated at a 2.5m. I am not sure many even felt it! I am just ultra sensitive, not so much that I can predict them though:)

Everyone needs a little of this:)

This is a great example of why we need to smile!

Game Nights!

This has been happening almost every night at our house since Ben and Jacquie came back from Oregon. It is not alway Catan, sometimes it's yahtzee or Hearts, but mostly Catan.
Setting up the gameboard. In this game the board changes each game that you play.

The thief in the desert.

On your turn you must roll the dice and collect your cards, buy or trade.

This is the white players building cost card. You can build roads, settlements and city's. You can also buy development cards.

You may not want to hang on to more then 7 cards at a time or the thief may steal half of them.

Looks like a good collection, where are your sheep?

Resolutions Update

So it has been 15 days and I have been able to make our bed everyday so far! I am doing well on all except one! The one I thought would be easiest. After some thought and discussion with Darren I am scratching #9 off the list. No one wants to get up for big Breakfast. I finished 5 scrapbook pages and I hope to get many more finished. I hope to get hooked up with a good dentist next week!

We had a great Mutual opening 2009 Theme night tonight. The kid's ate Bean's & dog's with chips and Rootbeer. The Young Women brought cookies. We had Bro. Van Pinx. talk about the new theme found here. They then learned how to line dance from the Acree's. I think everyone had a great time!

Scrap blogging site I found today!

I am very excited about this free site! Go here and check out all the wonderful pages that they have. There is a tutorial to help you get started. It even makes getting your pictures easy!!! You can post to all kinds of sites like blogger and facebook when you have finished. They do offer a publishing service if you wish to make a book. I created a header for our blog but have not quite figured out how to post it properly yet. Look for that soon. I can't wait to see what cool things you create using this free site!!!

New Years Resolutions

I have made 9 resolutions for myself for this year 2009. I am blogging them just in case I forget what they are, my memory is not what it used to be. Darren will be the first to tell you that. So here they are.

1. Pray daily
2. Read the Book of Mormon at least 5 min. each day
3. Smile everyday

Those were a challenge given to the youth and their leaders by the General Young Women and Young Men presidents. See A Brand New Year video in side bar.

4. Make bed everyday
5. Plan and prepare more healthy meals
6. Scrapbook more often so I can get some of the boxes out of my closet!
7. Go to the dentist (this will be my hardest one)
8. Be more in tune to the promptings of the spirit.
9. Last and most fun Make big breakfasts with my family on Sunday mornings. (We are the late block)

Here are a few pictures from around our home this year as we have been doing some clean up and rearranging.

We wish you the very best during 2009!
