I am now being surrounded by 6 guys; some have weapons, some don't. The judges want to make sure I can survive a multiple attack.
At this point, I have taken his club and am now using it against him. :) Don't you love my great faces?!
So here is my injury. During my multiple attackers I decided to head butt a practice knife. No, it was actually an accident. Take my advice, don't duck on a knife.
I am finished!!! Next test, 3 years from now.

As many of you know, I train in the Martial Arts. Well, after 6 years I am up to test for my 2nd degree Black Belt. I have worked really hard this last year to make sure that I know all my material. There is great expectations for a student when approaching their degree test so I hope that I am able to live up to the bar that has been set. Truthfully, I am SO nervous, I truly hope I represent well. If you are interested in attending click here. I will let you all know how it turns out. Thanks . . .

My cute friends and I all went to the release party for Breaking Dawn, the fourth book in the Twilight Saga. It was so fun to be with them and wait like teenagers for this book. (oh, and there were A lot of teenagers.) I have to say that I didn't bounce back the next day after being out so late. That makes me feel very old. :)
Oh, by the way, the book was GREAT!!!

My sweet nephew Jordan left on his mission today to Alaska. I have always loved Jordan. Though quiet at times he has always made me smile and most the time laugh. I have been impressed how he has always stayed on the straight and narrow and lead others with a quiet strength. I know he will have an amazing mission and will be able to bring many souls unto Christ. Love you!!

We just got back from our family vacation in Utah. We go to Utah for the Fourth of July because it is SO fun. This year was especially fun with all the activities my big bro planned. We got in late Tuesday and on Wednesday we hit the ground running. I visited with my sister in Spanish Fork and we took the kids to Jumping Jacks (a bounce house). We had a great time and even wrestled a spider. :( Well, she actually wrestled the spider I watched from the top of a bounce slide. After our exciting morning we went back to her house and watched the kids play in the water. They loved it. On Thursday Geret took time off from work and took us up to Timp Cave. It was our first time there and we really enjoyed it. We hiked 1 and 1/2 miles up hill to the cave. Inside the cave it was dark and very cold. Ellie had a hard time with the darkness, but was quick to tell us how much fun she had AFTER we were out of the cave. After our 3 hour adventure in the caves Brandon took us all to Tango house, Argentine Cuisine. It was AWESOME!!! The empanadas were great and the Sausage sandwich kicked booty. :) I'm sure it was called something more impressive than just sausage. Doesn't really matter. It was great!!! We hustled back home and headed to the water park for some water fun. There were more single wards than I can count (which was a scary thought). We had the whole park to ourselves, pretty cool, and crowded. We were all very tired. On the fourth we went to go see the balloons launch and then back to the house for some sleepy time. The rest of the sibs arrived by dinner time and we ate some great food. Over the next couple of days we ate, layed out on the back lawn, and played lots of soccer.
My brothers Jabe and Buck came from Washington to visit as well. It was nice having them around. Jabe is leaving for Iraq in the next couple of months. He serves with the Army National Guard. I am grateful to him. Buck is turning in his papers for his mission. To say the least it was a nice time to meet and say adios for a while. In addition, my adorable (sorry it's an aunt thing) nephew Jordan is also leaving on his mission to Alaska this month. We were able to go with him to take out his endowments. We love you Jordan.
It was a great trip. We created memories I will always remember. Love you all . .

I can not believe that Tay is one years old!!! I still think of her as my tiny baby. We had such a fun day with her. We woke her up by singing "Happy Birthday" and she got to open a couple of presents. Later that day we had a family swim party. Everyone turned out to see Tay eat all that cake and of course open her presents.
She truly has been an angel in our house and we are looking forward to getting to know her spunky personality. Love you Tay!!
