Poets & Pirates

After spending the week in Utah with family, I returned home exhausted. But not enough to keep me away from the Poets and Pirates tour. We didn't spend all day at the concert like we could have, but we saw Leann Rimes, Keith Urban, and Kenny Chesney perform.





I enjoyed watching Keith perform more than Kenny. He puts on an excellent live show. Dave and I actually bought each other tickets for our anniversary back in April, and so we ended up with an extra set. We gave those to our friends, the Nixons.

Taya is One!


I made a last minute decision and took a midnight flight to Utah this weekend. There were lots of reasons I decided to go ... one being that Taya turned 1! It is such a miracle that she is even here. For those who don't know, Jared's daughter, Taya, was born last year 3 months early weighing in at 1 lb. 6 oz. She truly overcame the odds and here a year later has no problems whatsoever! What a sweetie! We enjoyed a day at the pool in Tooele to celebrate.

reflections of christ

I recently was sent this link from a friend. It is a slideshow of pictures taken about events in Christ's life. It was so touching and beautiful. I cried during the whole thing. It is worth sharing so check it out. I've never seen photography like this.

Reflections of Christ

My favorites are the first one with the angels sounding Christs's birth, and the one where John the Baptist and Jesus are embracing after his baptism.

word's out . . .

When a lady at church point blank asked me if I was pregnant, I couldn't just lie to her, regardless that she asks me that question every other month. But word's out now. We're having #2 in March.
