what's new.........

It's been a long time, almost a month so I'm trying to figure out what has happened since the last time I blogged. I don't remember if I wrote about Colby's new job, and I didn't take time to read over my old posts. He is working in Soda Springs, his home town, at a grain elevator. He worked there in high school. He has been staying with his parents during the week, the last couple of weeks I have been going down on Sunday nights and staying until Tuesday afternoon, since I don't work until Wed morning, sometimes I have a meeting Tuesday afternoon. I've applied for some jobs, no word and it's been almost a month too.

During the day I watch some TV, play with my photoshop elements, my mother-in-laws cricket and our scrapbook. I finally got the pictures from our wedding printed. Over 500 photos! So, I've got a lot of work to do. Also, I am able to make Colby lunch. He gets an hour for lunch, he usually only takes a half-hour, darn work-a-holic.

Anyway, heres a few photos I took this weekend. The first two are before and after I played with it in photoshop.

How blessed we really are.....

We had the opportunity to go to a funeral this week for a man from Soda Springs that Colby knew that was killed in an avalanche. Honestly, I really don't like going to funerals. When we got there the line to see the family was super long, and when we went to find seating there were a ton of people already sitting, so we decided to go ahead and get a seat. As the time for the funeral got closer the seats filled and more chairs were set up. The gym and stage was full of people. It reminded me of my Dad's funeral, the huge amount of people that is.

Anyway, the service was full of family members speaking and singing. All of his sibilings spoke. His two brothers spoke a lot about the gospel and the plan that our Father in Heaven has for us, how he and his family have been sealed by the power of the priesthood and will be able to live together again in the life after. Even though he is no longer on Earth he is still living and watching over his family.

It's amazing how blessed we are to have the Gospel of Jesus Christ and the power of the priesthood restored to the Earth. I know that I don't appreciate it enough in my life. Sitting at that funeral and listening to the stories about this man, his family and that we are able to experience things in this life and in the life after made me really appreciate the gospel more and want to live it better, and be a better person.


that's about it....
Colby is stuck in Soda for another night because of it... so that's pretty much it. I hate the snow!

New info on us.....

Before going to the Brian Regan show we went to Colby's high school friend Katie's house and we played guitar hero, mostly Colby played. Katie and I chatted and made dinner. Katie and Colby battled it out, Katie kicked his but- she was on expert too.

Here's Brian..... the show was great! We were in Section A, row G and seats 31 and 32. We could see his facial expressions, oh so funny. Most of the show was new material too :o)

We found out there is going to be a mission Reunion, for the missionaries that served under President and Sister Jensen, in Pleasant Grove, Utah on April 5. My birthday is the 6th so I decided I wanted to stay in a hotel after and have my birthday away from home and have 5 guys burgers and fries on my birthday :) So, I got on and booked a hotel in Sandy. King size bed, stove, full fridge ect.... for $45! I'm super excited! Colby said miracles do happen.... I don't ask for things and so when I asked for this he was game. I told him we could go to Cabellas too while we are down there, or Smith and Edwards.
