Snow in the desert!

Yep that's right, it snowed! Earlier I was driving in my car, with my seat heater on!, listening to Christmas carols, watching the snow come down thick, fat, and flaky thinking this is the coolest thing ever!!! Heidi and Alyssa played in the snow, had a snowball fight, and even threw one at me that hit dead on right after the last picture was taken! Snow in December, a special gift.

Pictures of us in front of our tree!

We had a very happy Thanksgiving, with both Doug's parents, and my mom joining us, as well as Beth and her kids. It was so fun having everyone home, playing frisbee golf, watching movies, shopping at 7 am (too early for me!), decorating the Christmas tree, and also eating at our family favorite--Macayo's!!

Shani and Chris get married

July 11 finally did arrive, and Shani and Chris got sealed in the LV Temple. There are so many beautiful images, and great memories, maybe I can learn to do a slide show!

More summer fun

Heidi's recital, and our trip to Ohio, where Heather and Jordan spent the summer. We bumped into the Laytons at the Kirtland Temple, small world!

Easter fun

We celebrated easter in Utah. Everyone got carried away with the fake tattoos, aren't they supposed to go on the eggs???

Doug and Megan Cruise to Bermuda

We went on a cruise to the Bermuda Islands with Paul and Karen, and Chad and Barbara Stewart. We had very much fun! We discovered that Bermuda is cold cold cold in the off season. We also had a Bucket List first--swimming with dolphins!

Adam returns home from a successful mission!

Seeing Adam walk toward us with his usual big smile was the best, tied with him bearing his testimony at President Tew's. Afterwords, we had friends and family over for meet and eat.

Doug turns the big 5-0

Fifty years old and still getting better looking each day! (of course I am still 39!)

Shani's bridal shower

Shani's bridal shower was so much fun!! It was at Karen Callister's house. Everyone was so generous and Shani got loads of nice gifts.


Wow, where to start? This has been truly an amazing year, full of many blessings. As pictures truly are worth a thousand words, I will try and post some of our amazing memories.
