I got on my blog today and realized I haven't updated this in about a year. Well how exactly does one sum up a year in one post? I think I'm better off stating that it's been a fun eventful year and leave it at that. I will attached some of my favorite 2008/2009 photos to enjoy.

Ethan's Recital

Ethan began piano lessons at the beginning of the school year. He had been diligent in practicing and seems to be enjoying himself. Attached is a duet that he and his teacher performed for the Summer Recital. His piano teacher is Marilyn Holmberg. She is a great teacher.

Ethan's Baptism

Ethan was baptized and confirmed a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints on July 27, 2008. He was very excited about his special day. Ethan was baptized by his Grandpa Weeks. His Grandma and Primary teacher, Sister Knight both gave talks and his sister Jade sang the song "When I am Baptized" I am very proud of my son for making this important decision and thankful to everyone that came out to support Ethan's special day!

Bel Air Barracudas

Today the kids had a swim meet at the YMCA in Phoenix.  I had the day off so we started our day with swim team practice in the morning.  Sarah and I and the kids grabbed a bite to eat at Rumba Cafe and then drove to the anthem water park where the kids swam for about 4 hours.  We then left the water park and headed down town for their swim meet.  So for the kids, it was a long day of swimming, but amazingly they were happy all day!

Dance Recital

Jade and Mom at her first dance recital.  Jade was a natural on stage.  I swear the girl has no stage fright at all, in fact it seems like she is in her element when she is up there performing.  I was so proud of her!  Congratulations Jade.

The theme of her performance was the four seasons.  She is the tall one in the middle.  Jade was very graceful in all her moves.  Her teacher mentioned that she is one of the most well behaved of her students and is always paying attention and listening well.

New Look

I was up for a change and this is the outcome. I know....pretty drastic, but for an Arizona summer I think it is perfect and easy. I was trying to achieve the Katie Holmes new look and I think Kristie did a pretty good job!

On my way home from Utah after Women's Conference at BYU my flight had been delayed.  I inadvertently packed my book so i went to the airport bookstore to buy a new book to read.  Christy had raved about Twilight so I thought I would see what it was about.  She was right...what an awesome read!  I haven't been able to put the book down, in fact Saturday I read 12 hours straight.  I am hooked.  Right now I am half way through the 2nd book "New Moon"

BYU Women's Conference

Wendi encouraged me to attend BYU Women's conference this year.  She attends every year and loves it.  I invited Mom to join me and we had an amazing two days!  The messages were great and I came home feeling spiritually energized.  I think I will make it a tradition and will invite my sisters and sister in laws to join in the fun!  During the last session I ran into an old friend from High School Emily Jacob who is now married and has 6 kids.  Wow!  Great to see you Emily.
