Where to Start!!!!!

Soooo I am still alive! I can't believe it's been over 3 months since I updated my blog! I honestly don't know where the summer went and how school has already been going for two months. This post is going to be a long one since I'll try to go back and re-cap my summer and what has been happening up until now. These last couple of months have been some of the hardest ones I've had in awhile. I've had things and relationships with people I never thought would be tested be just that. It's been hard for me to continue through and have faith that if I hold true to the things I know I'm supposed to be doing that things will work out. I know that the Lord loves me and that he sends people to me everyday that show me just that. It never ceases to amaze me just how well He does know me and exactly what I need to be able to learn from my trials. I have also come to realize how well Satan also knows me and is able to hit me right when he knows I'm weak. I also know that what I am going through is so small compared to what so many other people are going through. I have wonderful family and friends and I have a job that I absolutely love, two things that a lot of people don't have. I am so thankful for so many things but first and foremost for those two things :) I know that if I'm strong enough to be faithful through my trials that the Lord will bless me and has a plan for me. I'm so grateful for the Gospel and for the hope it brings to my life.

I got the new iphone and I am a little addicted to my photo editing program! Chase came home from his mission and this was at his homecoming. He gave one of the best talks I've ever heard. He has such a strong testimony and I'm so proud of him!
Another photo editing job
Almost all the cousins! Missing Kacies, Seth, Christan and Randy
Jen is having a baby! YEAH! I'm so happy for her and Jimmy! I hauled her around shopping with me all day. She was such a trooper being pregnant and all. I love Jen so much and am so thankful for her in my life. She is always there to give me advice about anything I ask. One of my favoritne things about Jen is she is always honest! No matter what! She doesn't do the little white lie thing to save feelings. She always tells the truth no matter what.
I love this pictures! Notice Payton in the backseat.

I just like this picture :)

I can hardly believe Jessica is getting married! Seriously! Erick is the perfect fit for her and for our family. The guy is great! I'm so happy for her. She's getting married October 29th in the St. George Temple. I am so excited to be able to be there! This is her bridal shower. My mom, Becca and I got her that little number!
