Horse Power!

Jordan and I went to The 2nd Annual Draft Horse and Mule Show this afternoon. It was great again to be around these beautiful and powerful giants.


Heavenly Father is amazing!

I don't know who compiled this information to give them credit, but whoever did, thank you!

God's Planning is So Accurate

Fascinating, I've never given most of this a thought!!!!

God's accuracy may be observed in the hatching of eggs.
For example:

-the eggs of the potato bug hatch in 7 days;
-those of the canary in 14 days;
-those of the barnyard hen in 21 days;
-The eggs of ducks and geese hatch in 28 days;
-those of the mallard in 35 days;
-The eggs of the parrot and the ostrich hatch in 42 days.
(Notice, they are all divisible by seven, the number of days in a week!)

God's wisdom is seen in the making of an elephant.. The four legs of this
great beast all bend forward in the same direction. No other quadruped is so
made. God planned that this animal would have a huge body, too large to live
on two legs... For this reason He gave it four fulcrums so that it can rise
from the ground easily.

The horse rises from the ground on its two front legs first. A cow rises
from the ground with its two hind legs first. How wise the Lord is in all His
works of creation!

God's wisdom is revealed in His arrangement of sections and segments, as
well as in the number of grains.

-Each watermelon has an even number of stripes on the rind.
-Each orange has an even number of segments.
-Each ear of corn has an even number of rows.
-Each stalk of wheat has an even number of grains.
-Every bunch of bananas has on its lowest row an even number of bananas,
and each row decreases by one, so that one row has an even number and the next
row an odd number.

-The waves of the sea roll in on shore twenty-six to the minute in all
kinds of weather.

All grains are found in even numbers on the stalks, and the Lord specified
thirty fold, sixty fold, and a hundred fold - all even numbers.

God has caused the flowers to blossom at certain specified times during the
day, so that Linnaeus, the great botanist, once said that if he had a
conservatory containing the right kind of soil, moisture and temperature, he
could tell the time of day or night by the flowers that were open and those that
were closed!

The lives of each of you may be ordered by the Lord in a beautiful way for
His glory, if you will only entrust Him with your life. If you try to
regulate your own life, it will only be a mess and a failure. Only the One Who
made the brain and the heart can successfully guide them to a profitable end.


Knick Knack Paddy Whack Give The Dog A Bone!

Allie loves her rawhide bones. Can you tell she likes to bury them?!


One thing that I need to get better at is putting more dialog with the pictures and tell more things about our family happenings. I am going to start trying to do this.
First off, Jacie, Kamrie, & Torie hamming it up at the photo booth that we recently put together for Kamrie's birthday party. We took pvc and made a 3 wall booth with white sheets serving as walls. Jacie took lots of pictures of the kids and we now have a circl of completion as far as Kamrie and her 16th birthday goes.


Torie is playing volleyball

Torie is playing volleyball for the 2nd time. She has actually improved from last year. Her serve is much better and it is something that she can learn team spirit about.

Kamrie's Sweet 16 Birthday Party

We were able to put together a great birthday party for Kamrie's 16th b-day. Alot of her friends did come. They had a fire going for smores and ambiance.

Madam Zaroni the Fortune Teller


Blonde Joke

A blonde was weed-eating her yard and accidentally cut off the tail of her cat which was hiding in the grass.
She rushed her cat, along with the tail, over to WAL-MART!
WALMART is the largest re-tailer in the world!!!


I'm Famous!

Check out this on line article. I participated in a draft horse clinic and the author of this article, Audra, was there too. She included a couple of pictures that I was in.



The Littlest Egg

I have a bantam chicken who is laying very small eggs. She has laid two so far. We cracked the first one open and there was no yolk, only white.


The Family all together at the Gila Valley Temple

"I Like To Look For Rainbows"

Corey Page and his daughter Angel were baptized and we had the wonderful gift of a rainbow to visit us for the special occasion.



"The Great Chair Rescue"

Jacie recently has been bringing home chairs from the local thrift stores so that she can use them for her college apartment and photo shoots. She says "every chair deserves a chance"
