About Me

My photo
Hello to all. As you all know we moved to Utah in August 2008. This is a beautiful place to live and a wonderful place to raise a family. All the kiddos have adjusted well and are enjoying the cooler wheather. I will do my best to keep my blog updated. As you all know this truly is my 7th heaven. They all keep me busy and we love to have fun. So here we go!

Keeping the Faith

I love Jeremy Camp's music. I love listening to his music while cleaning, relaxing, getting dressed or driving. Any-time really. I was sitting here listening to his Restored CD, and felt so blessed. I was thinking back to a time I was so lost, and how unhappy I was. I blamed all those around me for the choices I made. I am so grateful to my amazing Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ for being faithful and doing exceedingly more than I could ever ask. I want everyone to know the happiness that having Jesus in my life brings. Here is a song that is absolutely perfect for the way I feel. And of course it's written by Jeremy Camp..

Take You Back

The reason why I stand. The answer lies in you. You hung to make me strong, though my praise was few. When I fall I bring your name down. But I have found in you a heart that bleeds forgiveness, replacing all these thoughts of painful memories. But I know your response will always be .... I'll take you back. Always.... Even when your fight is over now. Even when your fight is over now.. I'll take you back. Always....Even when the pain is coming through. Even when the pain is coming through.. I'll take you back..
You satisfy this cry of what I'm looking for and I'll take all I can and lay it down before the throne of endless grace now that radiates what's true. I'm in the only place that erases all these faults that have overtaken me and I know that your response will always be....I'll take you back. Always....Even when your fight is over now. Even when your fight is over now.. I'll take you back. Always....Even when the pain is coming through. Even when the pain is coming through.. I'll take you back..
I can only speak with a grateful heart as I'm pierced by this gift of your love. I will always bring an offering, I can never thank you enough.. You take me back..Always.... Even when my fight is over now. Even when my fight is over now. You take me back.. Always.... Even when my pain is coming through. Even when my pain is coming through. You take me back..Always.... Even when my fight is over now. Even when my pain is coming through.. You take me back..Always....

I love this song. It reminds me of all that Jesus has done for me. It reminds me that he will always be there for me.
And he fills my life, he's everything to me.

Don't we all love the summer-time weather! Here we are at a cute little water-park in S. Ogden cooling off. The little ones love playing in the water. I laugh at thinking before we left for our vacation to Arizona, how I was complaining to Ken about how HOT it was. When we left to AZ our high was 84*. The high in Surprise while we were there was 117*. So coming home was a welcomed cool. No complaints from me! We are missing family and friends and can't wait to get the Fall visitors.

Back Yard Fun

We love to be outside! I love it because it wears them OUT! They had fun playing in the water and running around today. Now that they are worn out, I can get some of the packing and cleaning out of the way. We all can't wait to go see family and friends. We have missed them so much. Friday will be here before we know it, let me get busy.

Alycia is going to kill me for this one, but I think it's super cute!

Colorado Trip

These are pictures taken in Colorado on our drive home. It was breath-taking, so much un-touched open space.

Farmington Trip

This was our mini vacation to Farmington for Ken's parents 50th wedding anniversary. We had a really good time. I added more pics to my facebook since they upload faster there.


For the month of June our family was choosen to be the spotlight family of our neighborhood. This is the photo that was published. C.J. was still in wonderful Arizona at the time. The picture of Savannah banana was taken at her school on daddy -daughter day! It was also put in the school paper.

Sorry it's been a while since I've posted anything, our family is getting over a NASTY little bug! I was taking care of all the sick ones and now I find myself feeling yucky. So bear with me. I will be back up and running soon.

So adding my posts today was alittle more confusing then I thought. Next time my posts will be added together, not all separate. Thank god for sisters. Kathy you always save me.
Moments that will remain some of my favorites...
