One More

I really am not a political junkie but there is so much to say about the new president and about prop 8 and 102. We all need to pray for those who need our help!

"Barack Obama was not my choice, but he is my president. That is true of all Americans. For the last eight years, there has been an ongoing campaign of destruction meant to handicap and hobble the last president. I refuse to be part of an effort to do the same to the next president. Those who didn't vote for Barack Obama must set a higher standard of civility and citizenship than those who didn't vote for George W. Bush. In defeat, there must still be nobility."That doesn't mean silent servility. It doesn't mean differences and principles are ignored."But it does mean the new president gets a new chance. It means we all must pray for him and work with him to make our country stronger and safer and better."The last eight years have taught us what happens when you set out to destroy a presidency for political gain. You help your candidate, but you hurt your country. That pattern must not be followed with this new president. America must treat Barack Obama better than he treated George W. Bush."

The Election

I had to detach my self from the news for a while because there are so many things being said I felt I had scensory overload. I can appericiate the historic nature of this election even if I don't agree with all that happend. I did not vote for Obama but I don't feel that either canidate could turn things around with the economy. I think it is congress that needs a change it is mostly Democrat and maybe with a Democratic president people will see how bad things get vote for "change" real change not the kind that they think they are getting. I also know that as member of the latter day saint faith I need to stand by my president! It is neat to know that my childeren will know that I was part of an election that has such historical value. I hope for the best I can't focus on "this is the end" like I have heard so much of. I want to look to the future with joy and happiness.

Tagged 6 Quirks

If you ask Paul he calls my quirks my different personalities!

1. I hate feet yuck! don't touch mine don't touch me with yours and we can be friends.
2. My closet is color cordinated black to white short sleeve to long. I like to walk in and know what I am looking at.
3. I can't sleep next to the door. Every time we move Paul has to change side because I won't sleep I just stare at the door waiting for someone to come through and get me!
4. Splitting the pole. If Paul and I are walking and there is something in between us I make him go to one side or the other (it is also bad luck to split the pole).
5. I don't like chocolate. I always get it for christmas and it usually doesn't get eaten.
6. I eat my sandwiches and burgers upside down. The way that food is wrapped makes it so I eat upside down.

Sicamore Creek

Paul and I went to sicamore creek last saturday. I don't know why we it is called creek there definetly wasn't any water. It is Arizona after all! Our 4-wheeler has had some issuse so we thought they were all fix turns out they we not. We Drove an hour to get there and could only ride for about 30 minutes because it ran out of coolant. We had alot fun while it lasted! Yes these pictures are staged but it is hard to take picture when your husband is flying around on a 4-wheeler. I hope we go out again and we would love to have some friends go with us next time!

Nursery Leaders

Paul And I have been called to be senior nusery leaders! We are so excited about our calling last ward never gave us a calling because we lived in the apartments so we wouldn't be there long enough to help. We love the kids it has to be the best calling we get to do singing time that is kind of scary because I don't sing and neither does Paul. But we have little cut outs and hepl mates to get us through. And the lessons are simple but to the point that our heavenly father loves us! Plus snack time I think that is Paul's favorite time it is pretzel's and animal crackers. Then we play with the kids there are 14 kids but we usally omly have 10. There are 3 girls that love paul they will sit in his lap the whole time if we let them. It is really sweet to see him loving them and them loving him. At first I was frustrated because all the kids loved him and I was just the lady that gave the lesson but things are starting to turn around and they love me too. We have been in nursery for 3 weeks now but they told us we only had six months because it is an isolated calling but I think it will be the best six months!

Want to make a memory... Well just leave one really!

Leave a Memory:Here are the directions...
1. As a comment on my blog, leave one memory that you and I had together. It doesn't matter if you knew me a little or a lot, anything you remember!
2. Next re-post these instructions on your blog and see how many people leave a memory about you. It's actually pretty cool (and funny) to see the responses.
If you leave a memory about me, I'll assume you are playing the game and I'll come to your blog and leave one about you. :) If you don't want to play on your blog, or you don't have a blog, I'll leave my memory of you in my comments.

Back Yard!

Yeah! We have finally started working on our back yard we trenched the holes for the sprinklers, put in the valve, the pipe, and the sprinklers, and I got to help! I know you are thinking Lyss digging in the dirt no way but it is true. All I really did was to cover the holes up and put togther the risers to the pipe. Paul did everything else he is a landscaper after all so he should do more than me. The dogs had so much fun they wanted to help dig the holes but we wouldn't let them. we turned the sprinklers on at the end Mac thought it was great Mazie however did not!

My recital

Well it has been a very crazy couple of months! As most of you know I have started a small studio out of my house and we had our recital May 31st and it went great! I just got the pictures from Kelsey Knight ( my wounderful cousin). I was a little worried how they would turn out because it was caous from the second I showed up to the facility. The whole place had been gutted so I had nothing to work with. Still she got some great shots. We went to another location for pictures so we could have a nice back drop. Childeren were everywhere. Parents, grandparents, aunts, uncles, brothers and sisters everyone tring to get the girls to smile and look at them for that perfect shot. I should never underestamate Kelsey she always gets some great photots my house is proof enough for that! So Thank you Kelsey for coming through!! This is Tap/Ballet/Tumble class they danced to " I wont dance" I though it if them they are so cute but at this age you never know if they will or won't dance!

This is my Fairytale ballet class they danced to " Edelweiss" nothing really to do with fairytales just a really pretty song for pretty girls

This is my Tap/Jazz class the did 2 dances "Stupid Cupid " & " Route 66"

they are high energy girls that loved to dance

These are pictures of me and my sisters. I was trying to find a location and time to take recital pictures for my little dance studio. If you didn't know I teach classes here at my house. Our show is this weekend and I will be happy when it is over because it is hard work. But it has been very rewarding. And my sisters and my mom are always the first to volunteer to help. I love them!

Check out my Slide Show!
