Jody and I have been married for 6 years now! We live a simple life, but it's a happy life. We've been blessed with our sweet Elsie who we adore each and every day. Here's to a blog of thoughts, memories, and who are we kidding, lots of Elsie!!

YaY...a BBQ!!

Gotta love BBQ nights!! We finally put together our BBQ that we recieved from Jody's family at Christmas!! We Love It!!! Jody made a great Sunday dinner for us... with yummy steaks, potatoes and baked beans! Thanks Leavitt Family for the great present!!

He was glad to finish putting this together...

Lately, the winter has been so great up here! All the snow had pretty much melted by Saturday afternoon and it hadn't been that cold! Yesterday, reality hit us....we had SO much snow! Here's a picture of our backyard while we were out BBQ'ing! Our poor dogs hate the winters here but here is Frank in the snow!!!

Church Ball...

The lastest excitment in our lives is Jody joining the church ball team!! YAY...!! He's loving it!!! Each ward in the stake has a team and they play every Friday night!! Today was his first game and he did great!! It really is fun being a spectator at these events...Ha, men from all different ages getting fired up in church ball, (gotta love it!)!! Here are a few pictures of the Cherry Hill 5th Ward team!! We are going to miss the great times in our ward!!! It truly has been a great one...

Final Score....We Won!! 29-25


So...I have been lacking on the blog posts! We have been so busy with the little things in life I seem to never get the free time to catch up!

Jody and I have been doing great! Last weekend, all of Jody's buddies (Ben Flynn, Taylor Anderson, Jared Hickman, and Tyler Waite) came up and stayed with us for the weekend and went snowboarding in Park City...Jody had never been before, and of course they took him to the Black Diamond Slope, (the most intense slope on the mountain)! Luckily, he used great judgement and did most of the video taping on the side why the boys (who had the experience) did their crazy tricks!! We had a good time at dinner and enjoyed the company...So thanks everyone for the great time!!

(I will try to get the video downloaded of the great adventure!!)

We are so excited for the New Year!!!! It feels so good to start out fresh again, especially after the crazy holidays!! We have set some really great New Year Resolution's so we are hoping this year we can accomplish them all! So Far, So Good, Ha...for the 7 days we are already in!!

Jody's been having this theory forever that 2009 is going to be our year to have great things happen. I really hope he's right!! We are ready for some great changes. He is launching his own business with MWI, the second week of January down in Pheonix, AZ. He has been working so hard on it and I wish him the best of luck and I am so proud of him with sticking it out and getting it ready to start the new year out right! I'm buying my second piece of real estate (with the help of my wonderful husband) down in Spanish Fork, UT! It's an older home that needs some attention but we got a great deal. Luckily we are pro movers...since we love to move about every 6 months (not really!!) but it will be nice to have a project for a while! We are starting to really love Utah (which I never thought would happen!) and we love our ward, so we will be sad to move but excited to get out of the city and live in Spanish! And last but definitly not least, we are hoping to be pregnant sometime this year! We feel ready and will be excited to expand our family when it does eventually come! So, we are excited for all the changes, physically, emotionally, and spiritually and wish everyone a the best in 2009!!
