 I fell in love with my husband writing letters to him. We wrote letters back and forth while he served his mission in Japan. We shared what we were learning about the gospel and things we struggled with and were trying to become and understand. When he got home from his mission we lived in different states and spent hours and hours on the phone. We always said "When we get married, we won't have to stay up all night talking because we'll live with each other and then we can just talk during the day." But we'd still stay up almost every night until midnight. We'd sit in the living room and talk until we were almost falling asleep then go to bed and talk more.

 I love to sit on the couch with him and talk through life. I love to sit across the table from him and laugh. I love to lay in bed after we've said prayers and wait for the moment when one of us will have one last thought we have to share.... 
Cori, I like you.

First day of school! 2014-2015

Totally rocked the 1st day! Loved it!

Also totally rocked the 1st day.... does not remember because her blood sugar was low when this picture was taken... morning of day 2 she is excited again and I will have something to stick in her mouth the minute she walks in the door today.

This guy and I had a day alone...we get one more tomorrow... today we started our T/Th babysitting gig.
Next week we start taking care of a new friend who comes every day, so we're soaking it up our alone time before we have lots of friends to play with every day! 
(That will be awesome too!) 

Yummy Harvest time After School Snack for kids-who-need-to-eat-the-second-they-get-home:
Sliced pan roasted peaches
Apples and peanut butter
Veggies and dip
Zucchini bread

Any other ideas??? My only requirements are, healthy, quick, cheap... in that order.

The dish ran away with the spoon...

But I am sure the Bowl and the Pitcher had WAY more fun than the dish and the spoon... because we went to their park yesterday, and it was awesome!

He's not getting ready to bludgeon her, they are practicing skipping rocks. 

An, Lilly, Cori, Gid and Havah is the background

Lilly practicing her  climbing skills. Preston & Savanah, Matt & Gid and Amy.
We waded in the river, made rafts from little sticks, played on the rocks, at yummy fresh fruit and made new friends.
We live in such a beautiful happy place!
Life is good.
