Memorial Day Movie

Since Adam had alot of "Homework" for the weekend, I decided to take the girls to a movie. We saw Shrek the Final Chapter in 3-D. It was a great show. We had a fun time together.

This is the rental home we use to live in.
We LOVED this house! We just out-grew it!
We are still live in the same neighborhood,
so we drive by it all the time.
This picture was taken in 2008.

This home is vacant now....

It makes us sad to see what it looks like now.

Take a look at the pictures and you will see why!!!

Isn't it HORRIBLE!!!
We decided as a family....
To give it a FACELIFT!!!
Out came the gloves, mowers,
trimmers, shovels, rakes........
But BEST of ALL....
Eight People, Ready to make a DIFFERENCE.
Take a LOOK

Adam and Collin started with the mowers and trimmers...

While the rest of the Kids and I started pulling weeds...

YES....that is SMILES you see on their FACES!

Talk about GREAT KIDS...
They didn't stop until we achieved our Goal!
Our Goal????

To Make it ...


It feels great knowing that we all came together and worked hard as a family providing service in our neighborhood.
The whole time while we were "cleaning up" you could hear all the kids talking about the old house and memories they have from living there. This HOME is where our FAMILY STORY began...This HOME will always be dear to our hearts.

Gila Valley Temple Dedication

May 23, 2010
Today, Adam, Myself and McKenzie had the opportunity to participate in the Dedication of one of the newest LDS Temples. We had to get a special ticket from our Bishop and be a baptized member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. This was very special to me because this was the first Temple Dedication I have been a part of and I shared this experience with my daughter, McKenzie who was just baptized, who was attending her first Temple dedication. What a neat Experience and Honor it was to see our Prophet, President Monson, and see his wonderful sense of humor as he interacted with all the Brethren, Sisters and Children who surrounded him. Truly a day that we will never forget!

The Short Kids were at their moms house for the weekend. Shaylene, Collin and Kendon also were able to participate in the Temple Dedication with their ward there.
