Christmas Tag I stole from a friend

So I stole this from my friend Jamie's blog...thanks girl!! :)

Not a big fan of the candy canes...bring on the chocolate. :)

Kit, I'm not creative enough to think that shtuff on my own.


"Silent Night" sung by Harry Connick Jr.
Oh and..."Baby It's Cold Outside"

I was probably twelve or something. We were all done opening our presents when my parents had me and my brother to look in the hall closet. That begun a scavenger hunt...where I found my hot pink bike!!! I loved that bike.

Money :)....didn't really ask for anything for Christmas.


After Thanksgiving...lets not get carried away now people.

I believe in Jesus Christ who we should be our center not only this time of year...but all year round. Let us all remember what the true meaning of Christmas is.

Come on...PJ's!!!!

Never shopped on black friday. Nope...not a once! I don't want to be in an atmosphere well people are fighting over presents. It's freaking ridiculous.



hmm...nope. more like a chocolate orange!!! :) Best way to go!

Merry Christmas Peeps!

Isn't he freakin hot??? Yes...yes he is.

Ahh...BFF's. They were pretty entertaining in the "wipe out" game where you had to stop suddenly skating and get on the floor. They were the slowest and probably oldest people on the rink for the game!! haha...priceless.

Sista Pikula

Sister Latanya Pikula leaves for her mission this Wednesday!! Crazy! We went to her farewell yesterday and she did awesome!

She will be an amazing missionary and will find those in Guam that have been waiting for her to teach them the gospel. I'm so excited for her! I think of my mission all the time and miss all those I met and taught SO much!  It was the most amazing experience of my life and would do it again in a heartbeat! 

She also had a "missionary shower" haha...never heard of one..but it was an excellent idea! 

I love you and will miss you Tans! 

Halloween Pics...I know...better late than never

Ege was a pirate and I was his..."Buccaneer Beauty" as what the costume said... haha. We went to a party the weekend before Halloween..and needless to say, it was lame. Everyone was getting drunk! We were there for maybe an hour...LAME!

Then we went to a murder mystery thang that a friend of mine put on. It was pretty fun, and got to meet some new peeps so that's always fun!

Last night Ege and I were reading scriptures and came across a scripture that really hit us hard and I feel impressed to share it with the ones I love and share how I feel about it. 

Doctrine & Covenants 38:39
"And if ye seek the riches which it is the will of the Father to give unto you, ye shall be the richest of all people, for ye shall have the riches of eternity; and it must needs be that the riches of the earth are mine to give; but beware of pride, lest ye become as the Nephites of old."

"Riches of eternity," what a powerful phrase that is. To me that is blessings (riches) from living the gospel. "Riches of the earth" I think of as more temporal blessings given in this life. I know of so many people that are struggling financially right now, me included. Some have had harder lessons to learn than others during these economic trials, but we all have the same feeling of stress on our shoulders. 

I see these times as Heavenly Father giving us a "cleanse," as my mom has shared with me a few months ago.  I truly believe that. He is giving us this opportunity to stop and reflect our lives, the choices we are making and what we are making our priority. I know that I have and let me tell you what is important to me...

The Gospel, plain and simple. Reading scriptures and conversing with the Lord daily, going to the Temple on a regular basis, paying tithing, attending church meetings, visiting teaching, holding the church calling I have and doing it the best I can. Am I good at all of these things?? No, they are always a work in progress.

As we seek and live those "riches" of the gospel we will receive those riches of the earth in a way that the Lord has planned. 

Let us not become as the Nephites of old. Stay strong. Keep positive. Have faith and hope. Be grateful. You will see that light at the end of the tunnel. Promise.

Much NEEDED Update!

So it's been a while since I've had a good update on here. We've had a some changes go on in our life and are excited about them!

First off..the part-time job I got a couple weeks ago went full-time in two days! I was way surprised because my boss told me there was "potential" to go full-time...didn't realize it would be that fast! I'm very happy and grateful that it went as fast as it did!

My brother, Nate, and his family (Rachel, Brecken, & Gracen) have moved to Happy Valley! What a great treat it is to have some family close by! We haven't seen them too much yet..but they are just getting settled in their home and with Nate's job, but Ege and I are excited to be able to spend more time with them!

My other brother, Marty and his family are planning to move up to Happy Valley as well! Not sure when that will take stay tuned.

Cute Brecken eatin a sucker

Gracen didn't like my hat so much...haha. Isn't he a cutie?!

Update Cont...

My Grandma (my mom's mom) went through the temple this past weekend! What an amazing opportunity to witness that! My grandma has been a member of the church for about 7 years and felt now was the time to get her endowments. My grandpa is not a member and has been supportive about this step my grandma has taken. We are all so proud of my grandma. What an example she is to me!

My sexy momma and grandma! Aren't they so cute?!

The gang in front of the temple after the session.

These temple pics are compliments of my cute cousin Hallee! She did a great job!

Update Continued...again...

While we were in St. George this last weekend we went to the Rodeo with Sierra and Matt. I loved going to the rodeo as a kid. We would always ride our horses around before it started. Had some good memories from doing that.

We celebrate my nephew Hayes birthday while we were down. He looks like he could be turning 2...nope....he's only 1! He is a big boy that's for sure and such a sweet baby! His funny brotha's are next to him..Bentley and Taylor


Ege and Matt, his girlfriend...I mean...BFF. haha
Sierra my love!
