Idaho weather

A few pictures of what I get to see everyday!

Out another window at the same time as the rest of the pictures.

Here comes the ...Snow?...Rain?...or just more wind?

We're done! We're done!

We are DONE! 1200 acres of sugar beets out of the ground. Two toppers, two diggers, trucks, semi's & a pull tractor got it all done!! This is the last Field to dig, Matt was still pulling tractors today. Now we are going to go dig for the neighbors...the fun doesn't end yet!

What Matt spent most of his time doing this year...pulling trucks.

Paul wanted everyone to see what he did...we all know better. He is limping so bad, the poor guy, he goes in for surgery tomorrow on his knee.

Birthday & Volleyball

Addie had her last volleyball game today in Ketchum. She did really good-all her serves went over the net! They won their game. She has improved this season and loves to play. She loves to roll her ball on the roof of the house and bump it when it drops. (Sometimes she can talk her brothers into bumping it with her.)

Yes I am another year older...I love that my sisters came to make it a special day for me. They got up early on Sunday to make me breakfast (I had to go to a meeting before church so it was extra early) then after church they made dinner & fruit pizza-Yummmy! Then later Paul, Becky, Brittney, Stetzen, Logan, Heather, & Boys came over for more cake and Ice cream. President Telford, Shannon, & Cody dropped by too. I loved it all. Thanks so much for the great day everyone!

A quick up date!

Homecoming...Addie is now a part of the BIG homecoming parade in Dietrich! Her class took 3rd place for their float. Viv went to California and I got Kelton and Kasia for a few days.

Ryan is digging beets. Every day he comes home and tells me he had the best day yet...yesterday they broke a record he said, 240 loads with 2 diggers! (we are right next to the dump)

Aleigha is Potty trained!!!!!! This is such an all consuming project, adventure, trial...I did want to give up the 2nd or 3rd day but after that it went pretty smooth. She is almost out of potty treats, I can't wait! (Kasia loved them, they are out at her house!)

179th Semi Annual General Conference

I love General conference. I love hearing what the Prophet and Apostles have to say. It always makes me want to live a little better, be kinder, & do more for others. I loved the Saturday morning session so much for some reason. Maybe because there were 5 new temples announced or maybe it was what I needed to hear. I loved the talk to Aim higher! It inspired me about what I should do with Porter's arrow from his arrow of light. Elder Bendar's talk to show & express love, say it, mean it, & do it. Bare testimony and live it. Be consistent, was inspiring.
I think as the time for our Saviors return draws nearer we will all be tested more and more, it is the small and simple basic things we have to do. We are raising the rising generation...those strong spirits! I hope that one day I will hear the words "Well done thy good and faithful servant" there is no greater joy then that, doing what the Lord wants me to do. I know that my Savior lives and loves me and you. I know he is there, waiting for us to ask for his help. He LOVES US. Let us all be better and do a little more.
